Tempur-Pedic vs Costco Novaform ? - Page 2

post #16 of 30
I haven´t tried the Costco, but I´m extemely happy with my Tempur-Pedic after 4 years. My back and neck have never been happier. Don´t forget the pillow!

I got the Costco and am satisfied.

Not too hot. Has a little memory so I need to not aways sleep in the same place
otherwise I will be sleeping in a trench.

That quicksand feeling, where it is hard to get up from, still, learning.

Tempur-Pedic vs Costco Novaform are the leading contenders.
My main concerns are getting too hot and sticky when sleeping over plastic foam,
and too much memory where the foam permanently sags.

Tempur matressess: HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT!!!!!!!! Too bloody hot! If you like memoryfoam, get a combination spiral/memoryfoam, better for air circulation.

Firm spring matress plus 3"-4" memory foam topper. The best bed I ever slept on.

This is what I've never understood about the things. Wouldn't you have to remain the same position all night? And is there really a benefit for those who sleep on their backs? I've wondered if it's even possible to sleep on your stomach on one.

After researching the hell out of memory foam mattresses we picked Bragada: http://www.bragada.com/ I checked Tempurpedic, Costco, Novaform and others. I wanted one that was manufactured here in the USA by the seller and came up with Bergad and Bragada, which offered more features for less money. We ended up with the Waldorf model and couldn't be happier. The quilted top keeps it from getting too hot and it's been great for our backs. It offers great support whether you sleep on you back, side or stomach.

I have their ergonomic pillow, and I wouldn't ever switch back, but the pillowcase wears in a weird way, and an ergonomic pillow with a normal pillowcase just looks dumb. I've tried the costco brand mattress topper, and even 2 inches of it was waaaay too soft to provide any support. I tried to sleep on it for a half an hour, and then I gave it to some friends who like it soft. I guess it's a matter of personal preference, but it (at least the costco version of it) didn't work for me at all.

Different people find different things comfortable. For me, I've never had a better sleep than on my memory foam bed. I doubt I'll ever go back to a standard mattress.

FWIW, I sleep on my stomach. I also don't experience the heat issue.

The essential characteristics of memory foam is its viscosity and its density. Because it is viscous, it forms around the body equalizing pressure (much like a water bed). Because it is so dense, movement is slow so you don't get any rolling (like a water bed or a regular mattress for that matter). Hence, the mattress cradles you like a water bed without the motion transfer.

With so many brick and mortar stores carrying these things now, it's easy to try one one. It's sort of a love it or hate it kind of thing. I personally love it.

You can move if you want to.

Lying on my back i comfortable. With foam rather than springs, the whole platform
is less bouncy.

I love my tempurpedic, and I'll never go back.

Same here! I bought a King Size for $120 and love it! We had this debate as well. I have actually talked to people who bought Tempurpedic and loved it... others who HATED IT!

By a topper first to try the foam feel IMHO.

The foam mattresses are OK if you sleep like a corpse, but I move around too much so I'm happy with my simmons extra firm.

Don't do that... You need some support for your back.

I have the Temper Pedic and I am very uncomfortable and unhappy. The mattress pulls me in like quicksand, and I can't comfortably roll around unless I haul myself over to my side or back, so I'm up and down without a reasonable sleep most of the night. It's also hot as blazes, and being menopausal I'm burning up in the bed. I would not advise Temper Pedic to anyone.
