I've released our initial membership list ... which makes today a GREAT DAY :)

There is a link on the main menu here which will always have the current list as it continues to grow.

I'd like to also say Thank You to every one of these initial members. You are a wonderful group and I certainly appreciate the help, ideas and support you have given in these earliest stages of The Mattress Underground.

While the discount or bonus you make available to our consumer members is a real bonus, the greatest benefits of buying a mattress from any one of you is that that together you represent some of the best mattress manufacturing value in North America. Now we just need to help more and more people find you!

I'd like to welcome Fox Mattress in Volusia County, FL as our newest Manufacturing member. I had a great conversation with Rick the owner and as you can see from his website, he is another high value local mattress manufacturer who believes in the same principles that is the reason for The Mattress Underground.

We now have 9 of the highest value mattress manufacturers as part of our membership and as our efforts move towards increasing consumer awareness of our website, we will continue to do our part in increasing the visibility of these manufacturers and others like them who manufacture the "off brands" which represent real mattress value in North America.

Thanks again Rick for your support!

I'd like to welcome 2 new manufacturing members to our growing list of high-value mattress manufacturers.

The first of these is Oklahoma Mattress Company in Oklahoma City, OK. I have had many great conversations with Jim the owner there and he like the other members of our group is a "mattress person" through and through. It's great to have them as a founding member.

www.okmattress.com/

Second is Parklane Mattress in Tualatin, OR. While I hadn't had the chance to talk with Scott there until recently, I did take the time several months ago to drive a few hours from Seattle to Tualatin to try out their mattresses and was truly impressed. They have several outlets in Oregon and Washington states.

www.parklanemattresses.com/

These new founding members are all producing high value mattresses and are open and transparent about the materials they use and their methods of construction. They can all be trusted to provide accurate and truthful information and I am grateful and proud to have them as members of The Mattress Underground.

Every one of our members produces the kind of value that you just will not find in the chain store mattresses produced by the major manufacturers.

Thank you to each of you.

I'd like to welcome Bay Bed & Mattress in Santa Cruz, CA to our growing membership list. I have had several conversations with Dan, the owner there and in addition to great value in mattresses, including quality modular mattresses using innersprings and latex, he has also made some valuable suggestions to this site which I certainly plan to implement as time allows.

Thank you Dan for your support of this project ... and of course for being part of a growing group of manufacturers who are changing the direction of the industry.

I'd like to welcome www.flexuscomfort.com/ as our newest manufacturing member of The Mattress Underground.

There are many mattress manufacturers in the Los Angeles area with a wide range of mattresses, quality, and prices and its been an ongoing process to talk to many of them on my list. When I first called Flexus comfort and had a chance to speak with Henry the owner ... it was like a breath of fresh air. We ended up talking over the course of several hours and several conversations about mattresses, what he was building, and the industry in general and it became clear very quickly that he was exactly the type of manufacturer that The Mattress Underground was designed to help people discover.

He has been in business for a long time, is knowledgeable, focused on helping people, and quietly building high quality mattresses that have great value. In other words ... he is what I call "mattress people". It's always exciting for me to make these kind of discoveries and get to know another manufacturer who is so closely aligned with the goals and values of this site and I'm excited to include Flexus Comfort and Henry to the growing list of what I consider to be "the best of the best".

Hi kevinwu123,

That's probably the record for the shortest post on the forum :)

What mattress are you "testing" for?

Hey Phoenix,

First, I stumbled on this site and was amazed by how little I really know when it comes to purchasing the right mattress.

My wife and I are looking to finally buy a new mattress within the next month. We are both young but have a history of back injuries in athletics, and have been waking up every morning for many months with back pain (lower AND upper) and neck pain. That is, if we get to sleep at all. I am a veterinary student on a very strict budget, but seeing as to how badly I need sleep and don't have hours to spend tossing and turning, I am more than ready to put down some money on a new bed.

My wife swears up and down by the tempur pedic line, as she has slept on one in the past. I'm not convinced, however, that it will be the best value for our money. We went to a few larger manufacturers around here (Champaign, IL) yesterday, and ended up liking the feel of the tempur pedic and the sealy optimum lines at these stores. Nothing blew me away, however, and with several thousand dollars at stake (when I am living mostly on loans) I would really like to be more impressed.

I have read some of your articles and posts, and I am glad that I did.

Could you point me in the direction of some local manufacturers around us that will get us on the right track? Again, we live in the champaign, IL area and are willing to drive a reasonable distance to check out the right mattresses.

Any info is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Hi afuchs17,
You've probably already read it but just in case you haven't ... post #1 here has the basic information, steps, and guidelines you need to make the best possible choices.

The better options I'm aware of in the Champaign, IL area are listed in post #2 here .

Great site Phoenix! It looks like I'll probably order a 3" latex topper from Brooklyn Bedding to replace the worn out high density foam layer that came on my Natural Form bed. After reading through some of the posts I definitely feel better about ordering from them online as they sound like a great company to do business with.

Thanks again and I'll post how the topper works out for me.

Hi lookin4sleep,

Brooklyn bedding is certainly a good choice and they also have a good exchange policy if you need it

I hope you have the chance to give us your feedback when you receive it. You are certainly replacing your HD polyfoam with a higher quality replacement.
