    What type of mattress do you have?

    I just saw (for the 7,239th time) a commercial for a Craftmatic Adjustable Bed.
    I began thinking if people actually use these fancy mattresses.

    I figure there are five different kinds.
    Adjustable - the mattress can bend into different positions
    Air - you can adjust the pressure levels etc
    foam - those weird "memory foam" mattresses
    water - the mattress is a big water balloon
    spring - the standard spring mattress

    Which kind do you use?
    Which kind is your favorite?

    I have the standard spring mattress, I havent used any other type.

    Not me .. had spring mattresses all my life. Slept on an air mattress a few times while staying over other people's houses, but never owned one, don't find them to be too comfortable. Never slept on any of those other types of mattresses.

    Well why didn't you vote for foam then?

    How much does it conform to your body?

    I did, you just checked it too quick. It's actually a good balance, you don't feel like you're enveloped in something, but it does to an extent. A lot more supportive than I expected.

    Go somewhere that sells them and just try one out in the store, it's hard to explain.

    Well that's certainly one way to cut your overheard costs. Jots down box mattress on his notepad.

    20 year old spring mattress, it's older than I am by 2 years, and makes me feel 60 years older when I wake up.

    Good 'ole spring mattress. Never owned any other kind, so can't really compare.

    I have an adjustable mattress, but I've used air, water, and spring beds as well.

    I have a spring underneath and a Costco-purchased foam on top of that. I've used almost all other kinds. For some reason I absolutely cannot sleep on a waterbed.

    I hope Craftmatic isn't hounding people non-stop they send brochures anymore. My father received phone calls and mailings for months on end after responding to an ad. That was a few years ago, before the Do Not Call list though
    If you have to operate your company behind the scenes or under a fake name, maybe it's time to leave the industry and start something fresh.

    I have the memory foam top. I dont like the full memory foam mattress bed because they feel like you are sinking into wet cement.

    Best bed I ever had though was home made. I put a really soft mattress on top of a water bed. When we wanted to get kinky, my wife and I would take off the mattress, and use water based oils on the water bed plastic and.... well you know the slippity slide song

    I have the old fashioned spring mattress. Nothing fancy, nothing expensive. Though I was taking a good look at those nice foam ones they had at the furniture store when I bought mine and wow, they are comfortable.

    Also had this nice spring one which pratically had another foam mattress on top of it. Unfortunatly I moved, and it's still in the house.

    While I use a spring mattress, I want foam. Those have got to be more comfortable that the metal springs.

    I got one of those memory foam ones. I think they're a bit "over-rated". It's definately better than my old spring mattress, but not like "WOW" different. Best part about it is motion dosen't transfer much, so I can wakeup for work in the morning while not waking up the wifey.

    Do you think the foam will get worn-down after a while?

    Maybe I should start a new forum...mattresstalk.com
