I am not sure if you have ever put much thought into your mattress. I know it’s a constant discussion around here. My husband has a huge array of knee and back problems and finding the right mattress firmness for him is important to..well..his health and well being. For me, after hauling around a 25 pound baby all day, I am looking for comfort and the ability to fall right asleep.
Without Tylenol PM.
The problem is, he needs a firm mattress and I need something that is more cushion on my body. Now during the course of our marriage, we have gotten plenty of mattresses. From our first pillow top (Sterns and Foster) which caved in the middle, to our temperpedic, we have changed mattresses a few times over the years trying to find the “right” fit.
Regarding Temperpedic: It was a great change from the pillow top to the Temperpedic Celebrity and initially we really enjoyed it. To this day my spouse has very little complaints about it. I, on the other hand, haven’t gotten out of bed in over 3 years without my spine cracking down the middle that makes me sound, and feel, like a 65 year old. I have moved it to my daughters room and she now has it. It’s not a bad mattress, but I don’t think its a GREAT mattress either. You know how the commercials say “ask me about my temperpedic?”. Well ask me now 3 years later. I am not as positive as I once was.
A mattress shopping we go….
Last weekend, courtesy of Sears, we went shopping for a new mattress. I might possibly be the only person in the world that has a camera on me 24/7, so you get to experience it as well.
This is the Haas family freaking people out at Sears.
(yes, I do wear dresses mattress shopping…I am from the South after all, y’all)

Click more to find out which mattress I picked….
We picked the iComfort Savant. Formerly the iComfort Revolution, the Savant is the most popular choice among the iComfort line. Its a slightly firm, slightly soft mattress, so basically it hits the compromise of both couples. Our installation went great and the men that installed were knowledgeable about the mattress, the set up, and explained how to run it. We also got the moveable base so we could sit up in bed.
Now I will be back in a few days to let you know if my sleep and my husbands back are both doing OK with this change. In the mean time, you can read more about the iComfort Serta Mattress line on Momdot or visit Sears to find out which mattress fits your lifestyle and budget the best.
