What kind of mattress do you have?

DH and I are in the market for a new one because the one we have is killing our backs :( We have a platform bed, so we just need the mattress, not a whole set. I'm a side sleeper and he's either side or back.

Any suggestions?!

We are in need of a new one too, and I'm the side sleeper, while hub is a back/side sleeper.  I need good support but lots of cushioning, and he needs support.  We found the Beautyrest World Class Recharger is the perfect one for us.  Has individual coils with a hybrid top (foam and gel).

Oooh, that sounds nice...our mattress was okay at first, but there's, like, no give to it anymore.

I found the best way is to go to a store where you can lie down on the mattress, and not just for a couple seconds. Tell the salesperson you have a platform bed, so they can steer you to ones that would work for you. and then tell him to let you be there for a bit, close your eyes, pretend you're trying to go to sleep and see how it feels. That's what we did. It's been several years and it still feels great.

We went and tried them all out and found which one we liked best.  It took us several weeks before we found one. Some stores let you take them back after a while if they don't work for you. But to do this I think you have to purchase a special mattress cover from them.

We have a bamboo mattress.  I won't lie, it is not cheap, but the best sleep ever.
