I didn’t realize my mattress sucked until someone else slept on it and informed me it sucked. I had acclimated to the suck. I didn’t understand that this too soft, busted-ass, brokedown mattress was contributing to chronic pain I’ve been enduring. While I wanted a new bed desperately, shopping for mattresses isn’t fun. I don’t want to lie down where all those people have lied down before me. I can’t actually get in my sleep position because it’s so weird, so I just lay there like a corpse staring at the ceiling reassuring the solicitous sales guy that it indeed “feels great.” I’d rather avoid this undignified scene at the mattress shop. I recall when I stayed with my friend AMP for Pitchfork her guest bed was amazing. She purchased through Overstock and was quite happy with the transaction. I didn’t do a ton of online recon. I just ordered a competitvely priced fatty 14″ from Overstock. My queen arrived vacuum sealed in a box and expanded when I opened the packaging. It’s firm, but giving, quiet and cool. When I slept on my old mattress, I woke up with numb arms. I’ve experienced no more numb arm nonsense with my new bed. I’m sleeping so well now. I wish I’d done this sooner.
