to tempurpedic or not

love this suzani bedding. love the colors of it with the neutral backdrop. love the mix of it with the modern touches. would love to climb into that bed now and sleep.

i didn't sleep well 2 nights ago. and haven't been sleeping well quite a bit lately. i discussed it with steve. part of the issue is we've outgrown our queen bed. between steve at twice my size and 2 cats who sleep on my side of the bed, i don't have much space. we want and need to upgrade our queen bed to a king bed. we're at odds, though, over selecting a mattress. steve wants to try a tempurpedic mattress. i don't.

we've shopped for them in the past. and found out that you simply put your sheet directly over the mattress. huh, what? but what about our fluffy down featherbed and super padded mattress cover? i like sleeping on a cloud not a foam pad with simply a sheet for a cover. the sales rep also said that if you "sleep hot" (ie wake up in the middle of the night hot) a tempurpedic mattress is not for you. i sleep hot. steve sleeps hot. this is why we keep our bedroom at nighttime as chilly as possible. hmmm...

have you tried a tempurpedic mattress? do you have one? do you like it?

I always wanted a tempurpedic but just haven't tried it . . . It will be interesting to hear other people's opinions.

i have a tempurpedic mattress and i'm serioiusly obsessed with my bed!!! it's the most comfortable bed in the world and i swear everyone who has laid on it to do the "test" has said the same. worth every single penny!!!!

My husband and I have had one for almost 8 years....and we have a love affair with it. We miss it when we are away.....
We've often said 'it's the best investment we've ever made'
We have a mattress pad on our too.....so you can at least do that..
DO IT - worth it.

Friends have recently gone down this road & parted with $6,000 in the process. However, they are totally hooked & say it was money well spent. Good luck in your decision making Pam.
