Hi janetmonster,

I'm not sure what size you are looking for but I doubt you will find a better quality mattress at the price of the Ultimate Dreams (which uses materials that are typically found in mainstream mattresses that are more than twice the price) and the odds are very high that if you go lower that you will end up with a very much lower quality mattress.

At $250 (and again this will vary based on the size you are looking at) you are looking in the budget range of a "throwaway" mattress that is very low quality and won't last you very long at all (possibly even measured in months in some cases).

So thanks to this site I'm off to pay a visit to Worley Beds in New Bedford, MA. While I don't see them on the membership page, I've read some good things about them on the forum here, and they were incredibly friendly over the phone. I guess I won't be getting the 5% discount but I'm happy to support a local business!

A thanks Phoenix for offering such a great online resource!

Hi petteri,

Worley isn't a member but I do think highly of them and the quality and value of the mattresses they make and sell.

The 5% discount is always nice to have of course but even without it the better local manufacturers offer much better quality/value than anything else you would be likely to find in the area.

I hope you have a chance to let us know about your visit.

I paid a visit to the store this afternoon. Great no-pressure advice and tons of good info. I ended up purchasing one of their in house latex beds. I had been wavering between the all three types of mattresses (coil, memory foam and latex) I got the chance to try our all three there, and some before hand at the chain stores, and I ended up settling on the latex.

It was just the most comfortable for me. I did like the memory foam very much, but I just couldn't shake the feeling of being "trapped" in the foam.

Again, thanks to everyone here, esp. Phoenix. I'll report back after I get the mattress and spend some time in it. (In another more applicable thread!)

Hi petteri,

Congratulations on your new mattress :)

You certainly made a good choice IMO and I'm looking forward to your feedback when you've had the change to sleep on it.

Phoenix -

Thank you (greatly) for operating and maintaining the forum.
I feel I have a much better understanding of the place where I spend 1/3 of my life thanks to you.
Now to order a bed from Sleep EZ... :-)

Cheers -

Peter

Phoenix,

I am thinking of getting one of the Ultimate Dreams beds from Dreamfoam. I live in the Frederick, Maryland area(21770). Do you know of any retailers near here where I could test this or a similar mattress. Would you recommend getting the Eurotop with the main bedding firm or extra firm and the soft topper for a bigger peroson ~240lbs?

Thanks

Hi belam79,

I live in the Frederick, Maryland area(21770).


Some possibilities closer to the Frederick area are in post #2 here and a few more a bit further away in he Baltimore area are listed in post #2 here .

Do you know of any retailers near here where I could test this or a similar mattress.


The Ultimate Dreams is only available online through their Amazon outlet. I don't know the specific models that the retailers in the lists carry so you would need to call them and ask if they have any latex/polyfoam hybrids on their floor with about 3" of latex over a high quaity polyfoam support core (either with or without polyfoam quilting because either would be helpful as a reference point). I would then visit the ones that carried a mattress that was similar. Many of the manufacturers I've listed do make mattresses that are similar but the local retailers may or may not carry them.

Would you recommend getting the Eurotop with the main bedding firm or extra firm and the soft topper for a bigger peroson ~240lbs?


The choice between the Eurotop and the Ultra Plush would be a matter of preference depending on whether you feel the advantages of the Eurotop are worth the extra price for you. Post #2 here talks about the differences between them.

Without a reference point of personal testing ... I would discuss your firmness choice with Chuck whose suggestions would be based on much better and more specific knowledge of their mattresses than mine. My tendency though would be to choose a firmness choice that you and Chuck believe would suit you best without a topper (which would be on the firmer side because of your higher weight), err slightly on the side of firmness if you are undecided between two options, and then add a topper if you need it based on your actual experience on the mattress when you've slept on it. This way if you need a topper at all, you can use your actual experience on the mattress as a guideline for the thickness and type that would be best.

Thanks so much for your site, and your invaluable information. You have helped me avoid purchases that could have cost me a fortune. I'm also planning on purchasing soon, and I didn't know about the 5% discount until today, so thank you!
