Hello!

I'm new to all this and tried to get a better understanding but I'm getting lost to be honest..

I'm looking to buy a king mattress and I'm not looking to cheap out. I'm in Montréal Québec.

My wife weighs 100lbs and is 5'1".I'm 190 lbs 5'10".

Is the mattress in the image attached a good price at 3300$ tax in? Where should I go and any suggestions? We're both side sleepers.

I'm open to driving outside Montreal for a good place.

Hi Michael66.

Welcome to our Mattress Forum. :)

You are not the first or last to run into analysis by paralysis. I'm happy to do my best to help you through it.

To first address your question regarding the price...(and to quote Phoenix here...)

As for “worth”, while price is certainly important of course .. the "value" of a particular purchase is what is most important and price is just one of many factors that can affect the "value" of a mattress purchase. There isn't a "formula" that can be used to assess or "calculate" the value of a mattress because there are so many different variables and criteria involved that can affect the price of a mattress that can each be more or less important to some people and not to others who may have completely different criteria or definitions of "value" and only you can decide this based on your personal value equation and all parts that are most important to you (including the price of course, adjustability, and the options you have available after a purchase if your choice doesn't turn out as well as you hoped for).


A different forum subscriber in the Montreal area shared their recent findings/retailers .

Without being familiar with the area, I would recommend reading this article on how to spot a quality retailer over a shady one.

Also, as you mentioned you are both side sleepers ...

Side sleeping is the most common sleeping position and because it has a more "curvy" profile than the other two positions, pressure relief becomes an important part of the choice here so you don't end up sleeping on your more pointy or bony parts or to use a technical term ... your bony prominences. These are of course your hips and your shoulders. There are deeper gaps to "fill in" to spread your weight out on the mattress when you are sleeping on your side so side sleepers need a deeper cradle to relieve pressure so the gaps are filled in and help spread the weight over the mattress. In other words they need to "sink IN" to the comfort layers more. This means that the comfort layers generally need to be a little softer and/or thicker than the other 2 positions. In general a good starting point for a good comfort layer for a side sleeper is 3" and then depending on weight, body shape, preferences, and the firmness of the support layers, to go up or down from there. Most side sleepers will fall in the range of from 2" -4". Without an appropriate comfort layer, a side sleeper will end up with pressure points during the course of the night and could have symptoms of numbness, soreness, localized redness, or end up tossing and turning all night as your body tries to relieve the pressure.

Thank you for the response.

I ended up going with a 6" of 36 ILD and 2" of 28 ILD TALALAY from matelas selection.

Seemed like a good choice.
