My wife and I are searching for our first nice mattress. We are interested in memory foam but am concerned with the heat issues I've heard about. Also how good are restonic memory foam mattresses. I've looked at hem and the I comfort. Also looked at a few nice hybrids but the memory foam is intriguing. What do you guys recommend I'd like to spend 1500 or less on a queen Size. Thank you all have a great night.

Hi dakota,

My wife and I are searching for our first nice mattress. We are interested in memory foam but am concerned with the heat issues I've heard about.


The first place I would start your research is the mattress shopping tutorial here which has all the basic information, steps, and guidelines that can help you make the best possible choices ... and perhaps more importantly know how and why to avoid the worst ones.

Also how good are restonic memory foam mattresses.


Outside of the suitability of a mattress in terms of PPP (Posture and alignment, Pressure relief, and Personal preferences) ... a mattress is only as good as it's construction and the quality of the materials inside it regardless of the name of the manufacturer on the label. Most manufacturers including Restonic make lower quality less durable mattresses and higher quality more durable mattresses as well so it depends entirely on the specifics of the mattress and the quality and durability of the materials inside it.

There is more about the most important parts of the "value" of a mattress purchase in post #13 here that can help you make more meaningful comparisons between mattresses regardless of the name of the manufacturer that makes it.

There is also more about the many variables that can affect the sleeping temperature of a mattress in post #2 here but as you mentioned memory foam will tend to sleep warmer for many people than other types of foam materials (such as polyfoam or latex foam) that are also used in the comfort layers of a mattress but whether it sleeps to warm for any particular person will also depend on how deeply you sink into a mattress and also on where you are in the "oven to iceberg" range because a mattress that sleeps hot for one person may be fine for someone else.

Once you reach step 3 in the tutorial and you are ready to start testing mattresses if you let me know your city or zip code I'd be happy to let you know about the better options or possibilities I'm aware of in your area.

Hi dakota1820,

My zip code is 63077


The better options and possibilities I'm aware of in and around the St Louis area (subject to the value guidelines I linked in the last reply) are listed in post #6 here .

There isn't a forum list for the St Clair area so I also took a look at some of the options that were a little closer to you and some of the more local "possibilities" that may also be worth considering and the brands they carry that I would focus on (as long as you can confirm they will tell you the quality of all the materials in the mattresses they carry ... see this page ) are ...

sleepstation.biz/ St Clair, Union, New Haven, MO. Restonic, Symbol.

mistlersoakfurniture.com/ Union, MO. Campbell mattress, Justice Bedding.

mattresssourcestl.com/ Washington, Eureka, High Ridge, Arnold, MO. Restonic, Symbol
