My mattress has seen better days, and need of a upgrade. The choices are endless. So I pose the question...which do you prefer? Firm? Soft? Pillowtop? Foam? or maybe that space age stuff?

soft mattreses - as comfortable as they are - are actually no so good for the spine in the long run.

Try your mattrese in the shop (take off your shoes and lie on it for a sometime). Ask before buying if you have the right to replace it within a few days if found uncomfortable

I just got a new mattress and I love it. It's a spring mattrass and pretty firm. There were 4 "firmnesses" I could chose from and I got the second firmest.

I love my bed. My mattress has to bad for my back - it's got a big "Evelyn chasm" in the middle that I just roll right into. I wont part with it without a fight!

Probably not overly helpful, but i say get rid of the mattress altogether and sleep on a mat on the floor.
