Bob, it's been a little over two years ... how do you like the mattress?

I'm in the market now and was looking at what they are calling 'cooling' mattresses. Interesting idea for me. Wife could care less.

Looking at Dream Cloud which is in the price range of what you paid two years ago. They say it is: "Premium Memory Foam, Breathable Coils, and a Cashmere Blend Euro Top for Supportive Sleep
customer review ...
“Dreamcloud’s memory foam supported me, while the topper created a truly serene and satisfying sleep environment. I’ve never felt more restored.”

Good topic to return to.

Not happy with this mattress. It is NOT as good as a Tempurpedic. The lovely Mrs_Bob seems particularly unhappy with it. I'm OK with it but still can't recommend it as I believe it is a bit too soft. Some of the threads in the top stitching have come loose for no apparent reason. The edges of the mattress are not firm so if you sit on the edge you tend to slip off the mattress as it compresses under your weight.

Perfect timing. We bought a split king motorized bed in may when we moved. I like the adjustable part of it but the mattresses came in two options. Firm or soft. I chose the soft one while my wife chose the firm at first. Hers was equivalent to laying on the floor to sleep meanwhile mine is like sleeping on a soft pillow. She decided to exchange hers for one like mine. You can try it out for a month and exchange it if you don't like it. While soft is good for my back, I find that I sweat like crazy every night as I sink right into it. We'll make due for a few years but now that we have the adjustable bases, we only have to swap out the top mattresses in the future.

Sorry to hear that Bob. Thanks for the update.
Anyone else have a mattress they've had for a few years and they are happy with?
Tempurpedic sure sounds good but it is out of my price range. Hoping I can find a good king size mattress for less than 2k.

We had a tempuredic we paid good money for for years ourselves before it developed a big sagging hole in the middle. On another forum I frequent at that time there was a extensive thread on mattresses and especially for the price and comfort the clear winner was "Zinus Memory Foam 12 Inch Green Tea Mattress" which is available through Amazon, "and please utilize Doc's link". I have to admit here and now though mines now going south itself but I think I have been using it for at least ten years, maybe even a few more.

A few years back I bought bed and a relatively firm mattress at big lots.
We then went to costco and got one of those 3 or 4 inch memory foam pads for it.

Still quite happy with the setup.

We previously had a queen mattress with a firm memory foam top. It was comfortable. When we moved and got the king bed, we kept the old mattress in the garage as it was only 4 years old. I was going to list it for sale till a lightbulb went off. Hey, the camper mattress is a queen and sucks. So we swapped it out with the old one. Only problem is that it is twice as thick. So I built a small platform for each side of the bed so we could get into bed. It's cramped but comfy.
