Question  Posted: 1:14 PM, August 2nd (Friday)

Who has one? How do you like it? And... how many inches is yours?

I just ordered an 8" one. The reviews were mostly good, and my old mattress is OLD. I've had it for 8 years, and it was my parents before that... DEFINITELY time for a new one. I hope I like it!!

I dated a guy who had one. It was 10" and it was amazing. I miss it. My next mattress will definitely be foam.

W & I hated the Tempurpedic - we couldn't figure out how to move once we lay down. We went for an Sleep Number type bed and love it.

My mom, OTOH, loves her Tempurpedic She sleeps well for the first time in her life.

Especially since you've already ordered it, I hope you're among those who love them.

Mine is 10". I loooove it. I had one before when I had a queen sized bed. After wxh left, I went nuts and got a king bed. I ordered my mattress online, and have no idea of the brand.

I would definitely recommend it. Te dogs love it, too.

I have one with a pillow top. It's was always comfortable but in the last year (this is 8 years that I've had it) it's showing its wear and I wake up stiff in my back and hips. My parents have one sans the pillow top and I think sleeping on a boulder would be softer than it.

Sorry to hijack your thread, but do you need a traditional box-spring for foam mattresses? I would like to make the switch but my current bed is just on Ikea slats.

Slats would work IMO, you just want it to be able to breath. It won't be very tall though.

I have one (12") and find it very comfy, but hot. I'm ordering a cooling pad for my side.

They will work with any type of platform or slats, crescita.

Thanks for all the info. My bed is one from Ikea on slats too. I have my old mattress on it, and got rid of the boxspring. I am hoping the new mattress is tall enough to fit ok... I did think of that, so we'll see... I also bought a soft pillowy cover... it should be delivered today or tomorrow, so I'll get back and let y'all know how it turns out.

I have a Tempurpedic and I love it. Not sure how thick the mattress is, but it's a Temper-Contour, the firmest. I think it's like sleeping on a cloud.

We bought the iSerta back in January. I mostly love it. My spouse is in heaven and all his hip problems are gone. They have been replaced with some shoulder pain for me, lol, as it is just a *wee* too hard for me. Once you get used to it, it is pretty awesome.

It was delivered yesterday, but I didn't get it unpacked and on the bed until late. I think it filled out a little during the night, and I slept good. I'm not sure I noticed a HUGE difference, but I actually dreamt about it, and in my dream it kept getting softer and softer like an air mattress losing air.

I actually dreamt a LOT. Did sleep good, so hopefully it was a good buy.

We had one and hated it after about 2 years. It lost it's memory, and we fell in holes. We also moved to select comfort and love it. I did read the memory foam mattress's are causing difficulty with couples having sex! The article is right, it is a little more difficult!
