I loved my water bed, but Sealy Posturepedic has converted me!
by John M.
My wife and I currently sleep on a Sealy Posturepedic Venice Point king mattress. It is extremely comfortable to sleep on, and I love how soft it feels - I often say that it feels like you are sleeping on a pile of pillows. For years I slept on a water bed and I thought that I would never conform to traditional mattresses, but after I laid down on this mattress, I was sold.
It provides excellent back support, because it conforms to your body. It doesn't conform to your body like a Tempurpedic bed would, but it's similar in nature. It's not too firm or too soft, it provides good support, but it's plush in feel. I have never woken up with a sore neck or back because of this mattress, and most nights I fall asleep very quickly, because it puts me in a state of comfort.
The only problem I have with this mattress is the way it has changed in form over the few years I have owned it. I have owned this mattress for three years, and it is now starting to sink in around the area where I sleep, in the shape of my body.
I am not an overweight person, but it is still losing it's shape, so I feel that we will need to replace it in a few years. I would like to keep this mattress around, and we flip
it every year to try and keep it lasting longer, but like I said, it is not holding it's original shape, after only 3 years of ownership.
I believe the original price was $899, and I would have to admit that I thought the price was a little high. But I would definitely pay that much for it again, now that I have experience such great sleep! As mentioned before, this mattress is a king, and I would not want to swap to any other size. It is the perfect size for my wife and me. My previous experience on a water bed was glorious, but I am very happy with the current situation I have now.
I would rate this mattress as a 5 star mattress because of the comfort level that it provides, and I would consider purchasing another mattress just like this in the future. If I were to ever purchase a different brand of mattress, it would probably be a Tempurpedic, because of the 10 year guarantee that they offer. I didn't do any research on mattresses before I entered the store and purchased this one.
If you can imagine sleeping on a bed of pillows, that's what this mattress feels like. I would definitely recommend this mattress to anyone who has had back or neck problems in the past. It is an affordable, comfortable mattress that can be enjoyed by you, or you and your spouse!
