Which Matress Is Good

306 posts in this topic

A very costly experience but here are some things to avoid:

Plush, pillow top or anything that's soft. The Simmons salesperson will say that the mattress will conform to your body shape. This means that no matter how good it feels in the beginning, the material will turn to mush, giving you as much support as a hammock. Check the net, lots of complaints about shoddy workmanship in the Simmons range.

Thinner springs. The sales person will tell you this makes it more responsive. Meaning your core will sink while the rest stay up, again hammock effect.

US models They will tell you it is more reliable but I think of this as consumer fixed mindedness. How complicated can making a mattress be? You will be paying a premium on transporting the mattress and you could easily buy that hammock here.

Patented no-flip technology This means that they are giving you half the mattress. The other side is flat and you only have one side to wear down. Which means your mattress will expire a lot quicker than you expected.

Simmons Non-existent customer service. Wrote to them to ask if there was any exchange possible and there has been no reply since. If you check again, it seems that recently, their work has turned to **** because loyal customers are now finding the joys of back pain.

Enjoy!

wow u are targetting this at simmons brand. is it really that bad?

how abt sealy and other brands? mattress that can be flipped also means is thicker.. hard to find bedsheets.

anyway what the standard ht of bed including legs and frame?

Mine is 14" mattress + 8" divan bedframe.. and now choosing between 2" or 3" or 4" legs..

That's because I made a mistake of paying 5k + for a simmons bed at ackerman and smith and i am still paying for it with my nightly backache. The drawers under the bed frame I found out later were not even sanded down, just painted.

Sealy seems to have complaints too but Simmons seems to have more (after searching the US websites, AFTER buying.)

Standard height is up to you. I would think higher bed is easier to get on and out of. Also, higher legs also means easier cleaning under the bed.

Oh wow. This must be the first time I am reading such negative feedback about Simmons. Am not a Simmons user myself because it was way beyond budget. We ended up with a mattress from Dunlopillo. Bought it at the shop itself at Furniture Mall. So far so good. Nice and firm without being uncomfortable.

Really? I found out that in the US they are famous for mattresses that do not last, breaking down after a few mths and bad customer service. Worse, the only 5 star reviews looked like they had been written by Simmons themselves.

Just look around at any site that sells the mattresses. The bad reviews are all there.

I don't know why I never saw them before. Buyer beware - esp. dont buy anything plush or pillow top or anything with thick padding.

Actually, at Ackerman, I remembered choosing a mattress with little foam layer - yet when it arrived, it was the milner plush, with thick foam. My partner could not remember and we accepted the delivery. :(

Now feel so lost, because the warranty terms are unfavourable and there was no reply from Simmons. :(

If you do a little bit of research on Dorma, you will find that they are the royal warrant holder for bed linens not mattresses. Dorma does not manufacture mattresses in UK. In Singapore, Dorma is made by the same company that makes KingKoil, so if you are planning to buy a Dorma then you should just buy a KingKoil and save a lot of money in the process.

i wld jus share my experience on a serta. anyw its my wife choice as she prefers soft mattress. i was act more keen on simmons (back support more impt) but stil gave in to her. but i got a really good surprise on our serta. its soft but there is also a good firmness abt it....so it didnt turn out that soft after all. and while simmons or sealy users will say the good abt their spring system. i can add that the serta pocketed spring is effective as we no longer feel each other toss n turn anymore. somemore mine is only a queen size.

we had another cheapo mattress in our guestroom, which sometimes we take our afternoon naps. its here that we discovered the toss n turn problem.

I've got myself an Omazz mattress. Seriously those shopping for mattress should give this brand a try to feel the difference.

I'd tried Simmons, Searly, Serta, Dunlopillo, Tempur, MaxCoil etc. Nothing comes close to Omazz in terms of comfort, body conformance and assurance. Comes with full warranty against sagging which pocketed spring mattress brand cannot provide.

Yup, it makes sense because prices will only go up in the long run. But, it really depends on how long you want them to hold, 6 months or less may make sense. Longer than 6 months might be too long.

It's our first time buying a bed and we saw the King size tempur deluxe 22cm going for $4,199 with 2 free pillows (can choose any in their range). We're deciding between that and a Sealy Posturepedic UniCased 'Galaxy' which is at $4,699 with 2 pillows. Does anyone have feedback on Tempur Deluxe mattresses? Should we wait for the GSS?

i was going thru the tough process of choosing mattresses for the past few mths. tried sealy, simmons, serta, maxcoil, omazz.

Initially i was quite steered towards omazz coz i like the support it provides for my back. but wife says she gets backache after lying on omazz for 5 mins.. in the end, we decided on the serta sophistication. did not choose sealy coz it is not pocketed spring and since wife is a light sleeper. she'll most prob wake up everytime i roll on the bed. :D

hmmm almost forgot, when GSS then? :D

Hi noobhouse

from this link it says 28 May to 25 July 2010 ... that's 10 DAYS from now :D :D :D

anyway, I believe most of the big shop had started doing it already

Did my harvey norman, robinsons visit yesterday at orchard centrepoint. wf and me shortlisted down to omazz and dunlopillo. There one omazz offered at 2.3k (kingsize, latex + pocket spring, before additional 5% robinsons card discount), sorry cant remember model but quite comfortable.

Another one dunlopillo darwin at harvey at 1.9k (kingsize). but mentioned if pay installment, need to forke up 5% extra.

both shop bedframe is selling about $899 >.

overall experience, both shop salesman a bit pushy. ... but wf & me hold tight to my wallet :rolleyes:

Sealy salesman at robinsons keep on giving negative feedback on other brand ... so find him irritating. anyway, when mentioned my budget, he no longer interested

anyway, from them, we learn there is natural and synthetic latex ... sooo chemmmm. did some googling on iphone, sound more toward environment friendly material.

wf will visit ck tang later as they got offer this week.

Anyone got any review for Kingkoil Thermapedic or something like that? I tried it at courts and I thought it was quite comfortable. How about Slumberland Tempsmart? Or the Nightingale from Cellini?

I have a Simmons now. Bought it several years back for 1k+. Personally, I find it quite ok. But now I see the price all like quite high. Now I need another queen bed for another room, so does anyone has good mattress to recommend that is not so expensive? I also got a slumberland bought 10 years ago. It was hard then. Now, 10 yrs later, still hard like stone!

Got ours from Courts at Tampines in Nov 09, we paid about $1700 for a king-sized bed. The layer of memory foam was less than 5 inches so its not so warm but provided that lush feeling when you sleep. Courts has a very extensive range of mattresses and really no pressure to try out or buy. You can check them out, I am sure they have in other sizes too.
