    Our bed is something we spend a third of our life on, it might as well be the best.

    A good night’s sleep is essential to having a productive day, healthy lifestyle, & healthy profits.

    What kind of mattresses do fastlaners sleep on?

    I’m thinking of getting a Sleep Number.

    Bro! You're scaring me! I just bought a new mattress a couple of hours ago... (not something you buy frequently, and for this thread to pop up is funny)

    But ANYWAY, I purchased:

    Simba Mattress

    Here on Sunday, going from a super budget mattress to this will hopefully mean a real difference in sleep quality and consequently performance, we will see!

    I'm in the market for a new mattress, so I'm interested in reading the replies.
    Anyone try Casper?

    Why not just buy an air mattress from Coleman or Dicks? Same as a sleep number bed. Put a pillow top on it if you want extra padding.

    We have a crazy expensive old school Stearns and Foster.

    All kidding aside, spend a BUNCH on your mattress. That is one area to not be a cheap a$$. You spend a third of your life laying on it.

    I once bought a slim mattress because it went with my modern bed frame, looked great, but was awful and not comfortable one bit. I returned it and dropped some extra cash on a fat clunker - it's a Beautyrest hotel diamond 5. This mattress is unbelievably comfy, 0 back problem, fall asleep in seconds. 100% highly recommended.

    I'm going to be buying a new mattress in May so thank goodness for this thread, but I can't lie: all last summer I stayed with a friend and all I used was some $240 memory foam mattress from Walmart and put it on the floor.

    Easily one of the comfiest sleeping arrangments I've ever had.

    I just bought a Nectar mattress and really do not recommend it unless you like really hard mattress. It was reviewed very well, with a 1-year sleep trial guarantee, but it is so hard so I really don't recommend that one.

    Oy, I Spent a wee bit over 5k on my Sleep number. Am I happy.. YES! Would I have bought a different bed? Definitely! I'll say my bed will beat out 99% of consumer store beds that I've seen. There have been a few newer companies pop up that i'd be interested in trying out their product. ( Maybe I could make that a website) TEMPURPEDIC has my vote for a good option. I would avoid Sleep Number, If you want a detailed breakdown and photos i'll go there, but i'd rather avoid it.

    A notable company that I didn't dig into was also www.purple.com. I didn't look into product reviews, but for looking at the bed for longevity and price. It caught my eye.

    Here is the correct way to buy a mattress. Someone should be standing about 15-20 feet from you. Lay on your side the top of your shoulder and your hip should be aligned even. If you do that, then your body will have the perfect night sleep.

    But..... you might not feel it at first. Probably if you are comfortable the very 1st night... you got the wrong mattress. Right now your body is probably not aligned right so it could take up to 3 months for your body to get aligned. Some nights you might be telling me I'm crazy because it's so uncomfortable but stick with it and you will thank me later.

    Oh yeah.... all pillows are not created equal. They make specific pillows for the way you lay and I would have never believed it but they do work. So buy the $200 pillow.

    Sleep number.

    I like a ridiculous hard mattress and my wife likes soft. I set it as hard as it goes. Im not really that crazy about sleep number, but it gets the job done.

    THIS! I sleep on my stomach with my face buried in the corner of my pillow. I look like a dead person. I bought a 'stomach' sleeper pillow and it has helped me get to sleep so much faster.

    I just read an article in Consumer Reports on this very thing. Top beds were:

    - Firm Bed -- Sleep On Latex, Pure Green Firm
    - Bed in a Box -- Casper, The Casper
    - Innerspring - Charles P. Rogers, Powercore Estate 5000

    I think it really depends on your sleeping style and body size.

    Here is something I can say definitively...

    Purple

    Holy smokes the bed is perfect. I don't know what I did before buying it.

    I sleep hot so all the money foam beds suck from Costco to tempurpedic.

    The air beds like sleep number are overpriced air mattresses. The middles break down and while they can sleep decent when they are new it's not worth the cost.

    Purple is the only bed I've had that sleeps cool, forms to any body type, and still bounces back instantly. The only downside is the thing is heavy.... But who really cares.

    Since getting mine, I seem to find everyone that tries it, buys one.

    I'm on mobile but you can see the egg test and all that on YouTube.

    Tempurpedic. I like it ok but wish I went for the cloud luxe vs the next step down in firmness. It does sleep hot and I live in Arizona so it can make for hot summer nights... I am not sure if I would buy one again.

    When I was a kid we had a Japanese exchange student. She sent us a home video and in it there were mattresses, on the floor. I believe the system they used included a tatami mat as a base, and a Japanese futon on top for support. Having back pain a few weeks ago I opted to sleep on the floor, on my comforter. Some of the best sleep I've ever had. I plan on investing in a tatami mat/futon in the near future.

    Hey! These aren't so bad. I slept on one for a few months one time. I thought it was quite comfortable. lol. I really loved the water beds back in the day, because they were warm and cozy, and I lived in Michigan weather. But probably not so good for your back. I hate hard mattresses. Can't sleep worth a dang when the mattress feels like a board. I usually like the one's that feel like a pillow top.

    1) Amazon Signature Sleep mattress for about $180 - It's a really good bed for the price. It's in my guest rooms and people always ask what brand it is after they sleep over. When I get my Airbnb place up and running this is the bed that I'm going to put in all the rooms.
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005A4OO80/ref=twister_B078H241ZN?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

    2) Tuff & Needle, about $800 - I think it's just ok. Not bad, not awesome, it's about medium-firm, and I like firm mattresses. Probably should have returned it on day 99, but got lazy.

    3) I can't remember the 3rd one lol, but it's at my condo in Colorado. It's super firm, my second favorite but I can't give you a name until I go up there to check.

    My wife bought a Sleep Number without me being there.

    They showed up to deliver it and put it together while I was home. I thought, this'll be cool. So I observed....

    They unboxed it and started putting it together. I was laughing, literally laughing at this chintzy shit that they thought they had sold me for like 3k. I had them box it up and get it the F*ck out of my house immediately.

    It's a glorified air mattress, with a PLASTIC frame. It was so cheap, i couldn't believe my eyes.

    I had to pay like a 10% restocking fee, and the wife learned a valuable lesson. Always LOOK UNDERNEATH THE FANCY DEMO SHEETS to see whats underneath.
