If I had a dollar for every time someone that I meet in a social environment asks for mattress buying advice, I would need a much larger wallet. I retired almost ten years ago and the phone calls thankfully diminished, but I made the mistake of telling someone in my local off-leash dog run who I am. Now, at least once a week, I get the usual question.
If I had five dollars for every mattress advice website, I could afford a hand made alligator wallet for the singles. Virtually all mattress buying advice available on the internet is either self-serving or even contrary to fact. I have posted a few articles about buying mattresses on this blog, but they just brush the surface. To make it more confusing you can add-in the proliferation of foams with good and bad memories like Tempurpedic and all it’s clones along with bags of air like Sleep Number crowding out the technology proven to work for more than a century to make your shopping more risky.
