I feel like crying...

Tuesday, August 09, 2011

Well i finally got a new mattress! Been having problems sleeping and mostly was because my mattress is old and i so needed a new one.. and if you all didnt see i fell last week and i am so sore as well. So last weekend we went out and checked on mattresses and prices.. laying on a lot.. and i so needed a softer one.. and one place a guy told us what to look for and all. Which really helped.. but with not a lot of money.. they had a sale at Costco and we ended up with a queen set from there.. and at first i thought it was going to be a good one.. but after sleeping it on last night it isnt as good as i thought.. its a hard cheap mattress .. not really cheap.. 500 but still not as soft and i know i am going to have a hard time sleeping every night.. what can i do?? nothing cause i gave my old set away to my granddaughter .. i could have used the old box spring and just get another good mattress but that is gone now so what can i do?? nothing.. i cant complain.. its like having bad shoes.. you can tell the difference and bad shoes you dont feel good walking or running.. so will hang in there and maybe one day get a good topper for it..

    I sincerely hope it all works out well for you. My parents once bought a mattress and had a similar problem. Try talking to the company, and also see if there are any mattress covers that bring the mattress up to your comfort level. They even sell memory foam mattress covers that are as thick or thin as desires in many cases. Good luck, and hope it works.

    Thanks everyone ! I returned the bed and went to another ace and got a bed. It's much softer and will work out great. ! I looked online all morning for toppers but would just be too hard to decide which kind to get. Thanks for all good advice. Really appreciate it !!!!

    I agree with the others. First talk to Costco about a return. If that doesn't work get a foam topper that is at least 3 inches. They really do make a difference!

    If you can't return/exchange the mattress, why not consider doing what I did for years (with fibromyalgia I'm like that princess who can't cope with the pea that was placed under the pile of mattresses upon which she tried to sleep!).

One word sums up a suggestion: layers!
If you can afford one, get a THICK topper. I had done that but had also put a 2-inch foam thing (not the egg-crate type,but a denser foam with weird lines) down first. Then I put on a mattress pad a size too large for the now awfully-thick mattress and toppers. Used sheets for extra thick mattresses and that sort of firmed it all up but made the sleeping much more comfortable.

    I but things at Costco all the time so that I can try them out and return them. They realize that. You wouldn't believe the stories of people returning things 7 years after they bought them. It is a pain but go shopping today for a new mattress. Maybe a pillow top - spend more money. Try sleep number bed too. I paid $600 for a twin for my daughter and she loves it but it was a pillow top. Then if things get really bad, you can buy the memory foam topper to revitalize it. I have used those on two beds. Good luck.

  Costco is really good about taking things back....(except electronics, but they even give you 90 days for them). I'd take the set back! Hope all works out well.....sorry to hear about your fall....hope you're feeling better!! emoticon

  I'd ck with Costco about returning it before continuing sleeping on a mattress that you're not comfortable on.

    That's what I was going to say you need a mattress top I bought a cheep set and ended up buying a nice mattress topper and it really helped. Good luck and next time remember you get what you pay for, I learned it the hard way as well.
