Tempur-Pedic? - Page 2

post #21 of 24
We were looking at the King size tempur-Pedic but it was really expensive here (about 6000) so we bought a Sterns and Foster with latex in the pillow top and even though i am allergic to latex it does not cause a problem because the fabric on top is cashmere. The Tempur-pedic also was kinda scary because they use formeldhye in it.

We have a foam mattress with memory foam topping and it's perfect for us and has been great (no change in density) for the past 3 years. I love it and recommend it to anyone. I think the sleep benefits wipe out any concerns over toxicity, at least for me. It's easy to lift. You can roll it up (somewhat) to move it. And I can put a wide cup next to me on the bed, so that I can drink while nursing. And that's wonderful. I didn't see any difference with Temperpedic, and I think you are paying a lot for the name.

We bought our mattress locally at http://www.foamorder.com/. You can choose whatever density, thickness, topping you like. All customized. I think we paid about $400. And we use it on a platform bed, so it's very nice and firm.

Thanks for the link, Kate. Can anybody else give me other links to where they bought their mattresses? I have to do lots of research before making a decision. There are so many sites out there I don't know where to begin.
