I went mattress shopping today. The salesman initially narrowed down the process by having me lie down on three different firmness levels (a Tempurpedic thrown in as a fourth) before proceeding. While I liked the cradling of the Tempurpedic, I didn't like how it basically damped out all movement so it was on to the box springs. What I ended up liking was a moderately firm mattress with a pillow top (I hated plush and I didn't like the firm with no pillow top because I sleep on my side). In particular, I liked this one: http://www.mattressfirm.com/Stearns-...w-Top-P11.aspx and this one: http://www.mattressfirm.com/Sealy-Po...-Top-P209.aspx The Stearns and Foster Estate series seemed to feel a bit better (I didn't look at the prices before lying down on any of the mattresses). My question is what should I be looking for in a mattress that will last me 10 years? Are pillow tops good or bad, warranty, etc. There is no coherent resource on the internet for this. My budget is $2000 for a queen mattress/base set.
