Hi Help needed,

Welcome ... and I'm glad you found us :)

I'm not sure what you've read since you found the site but just in case you haven't read it yet ... the first place to start your research is the mattress shopping tutorial here which includes all the basic information, steps, and guidelines that can help you make the best possible choice ... and perhaps more importantly know how and why to avoid the worst ones.

Two of the most important links in the tutorial that I would especially make sure you've read are post #2 here which has more about the different ways to choose a suitable mattress (either locally or online) that is the best "match" for you in terms of "comfort", firmness, and PPP that can help you assess and minimize the risks of making a choice that doesn't turn out as well as you hoped for and post #13 here which has more about the most important parts of the "value" of a mattress purchase which can help you make more meaningful quality/value comparisons between mattresses in terms of suitability (how well you will sleep), durability (how long you will sleep well), and the overall value of a mattress compared to your other finalists based on all the parts of your personal value equation that are most important to you.

When you reach step 3 in the tutorial and you are ready to test mattresses then subject to confirming that any retailer or manufacturer on the list that you wish to visit is completely transparent (see this article ) and to making sure that any mattress you are considering meets the quality/value guidelines I linked earlier in this reply ... the better options or possibilities I'm aware of in and around the Seattle area are listed in post #2 here .

I'm looking forward to finding out what you end up deciding ... and of course to any comments or questions you may have along the way.

I went to Slumber ease Mattress Factory in Marysville Washington. I have an old waterbed platform with drawers underneath and I'm looking at a mattress only because I don't need a boxspring. The mattress I'm looking at is called velvet dream 660 int innerspring mattress. I sleep hot and have low back pain. What do you think of this mattress?

Hi Help Needed,

There is more about the 3 most important parts of the "value" of a mattress purchase in post #13 here which can help you make more meaningful quality/value comparisons between mattresses in terms of suitability (how well you will sleep), durability (how long you will sleep well), and the overall value of a mattress compared to your other finalists based on suitability, durability, and all the other parts of your personal value equation that are most important to you (including the price of course and the options you have available after a purchase if your choice doesn't turn out as well as you hoped for).

While nobody can speak to how any specific mattress will "feel" for someone else or whether it will be a good "match" in terms of comfort, firmness, and PPP because this is too subjective and relative to different body types, sleeping positions, and individual preferences, sensitivities, and circumstances and you are the only one that can feel what you feel on a mattress ... outside of PPP (which is the most important part of "value"), the next most important part of the value of a mattress purchase is durability which is all about how long you will sleep well on a mattress. This is the part of your research that you can't see or "feel" and assessing the durability and useful life of a mattress depends on knowing the specifics of its construction and the type and quality of the materials inside it regardless of the name of the manufacturer on the label (or how a mattress feels in a showroom or when it is relatively new) so again I would always make sure that you find out information listed here so you can compare the materials and components to the quality/durability guidelines here to make sure there are no lower quality materials or weak links in a mattress that would be a cause for concern relative to the durability and useful life of a mattress before making any purchase.

I don't see any specific information about the specific materials and components inside the velvet dream 660 on their website so I can't make any meaningful comments about it but if you can find out all the information in this article and post it on the forum (with all the layers and components listed in order from the top down or the bottom up and including the density of any polyfoam or memory foam in the mattress) then I'd certainly be happy to make some comments about the materials and components inside it and the mattress "as a whole" and let you know if there are any lower quality materials or weak links that could compromise the durability and useful life of the mattress and be a cause for concern.
