    Memory foam experience?

    I bought a really nice Swedish mattress with those 1 zillion individually wrapped coils 4 years a go and while it is very nice, my wife suffers from some pretty nasty neck & back pain. I myself roll over about 50 times a night and I am thinking of trying a high quality memory foam topper. After about a thousand reviews and searching I think a topper on my good mattress will be a good indication if I like it and no huge loss if I don't.

    Any experience with a good memory foam pad?

    I love mine but that said, you have to get one that's right for you. At least if you buy from an online place with different types of foam and memory foam. They range in types of firmness. Other things to consider are sleeping postions. Side sleepers need more give so your shoulders don't ache in the morning. Back sleepers can sink into a good memory foam mattress and stomach sleepers need a firm mattress or their lower backs will ache in the morning.

    As to the hot? I've decided after spending tons of time on the road that mine isn't much hotter than a conventional mattress. Just make sure to get one of them covers so it can breath. They are maybe a half inch thick or thinner. Also there is at least one company making memory foam that sleeps cooler.

    I bought a different setup for the spare bedroom. It's a firmer mattress and the memory foam part is cooler than my main mattress.

    Maybe go into a local store and try a few of them?

    Will be able to tell the difference between firm and soft, topper or full mattress and what the pricing might be like compared to something you buy online.

    My friends got a Cal King ortho bed for them and their baby and they love it.

    agreed to damn hot, wife likes them though

    I need a very firm matress , prefer to sleep on the floor vs our 1400$ kingsize bed

    I was going to post a link to that thread, but the SG search results for "bullsh|t" were too numerous

    sometimes you have to think outside the box to get inside the box .
