Analysis Paralysis - Which Mattress? Sleep On Latex? Casper? Helix? None? 22 May 2017 17:02 #11

Phoenix,

Thanks for your help. It's been quite a journey considering that about a week ago I was considering strongly considering a Casper, a Helix or even briefly a Purple. Sleep on Latex was a very strong contender and I had considered their 9" with a 3" topper to be able to customize the feel a bit.

The mattress Flexus is configuring for me is split because I prefer something more plush and my partner prefers something firmer.

Certainly spending a fair bit more than I would have on a Casper, but the had I gone that route, I think I might have bought a Casper and then a couple three years hence bought another mattress. As my father used to say, "cheap is expensive."

I feel good that while not inexpensive, what I'm getting from Flexus is excellent value for the money. I will update once I've had a chance to sleep on it a bit.

I find it sort of sad that Simmons and the other big brands no longer represent the quality that they once did. even a short 22 or 24 years ago.

Hi iankh,

I agree. While price isn’t necessarily an indicator of quality, it is true that higher quality materials will be more expensive to produce than lower quality ones. I like the saying you mentioned because it also points out that just taking a bit of time to research and learn, as opposed to relying upon quick and easy to read reviews or advertising, can help one to find a suitable product, often resulting in savings (especially in the long run), but most importantly helping to provide an appropriate place for restoration.

I find it sort of sad that Simmons and the other big brands no longer represent the quality that they once did. even a short 22 or 24 years ago.


The gradual decline we’ve seen in the density of foams used in some brands is disappointing, but the good news is that there are still plenty of companies, like Flexus, offering products using higher quality componentry.

I feel good that while not inexpensive, what I'm getting from Flexus is excellent value for the money. I will update once I've had a chance to sleep on it a bit.


I’m looking forward to it.
