Most people have tried a tempur pedic, whether from your local mattress supplier or from one of their infamous trials. They come in 3 main model groups, Standard, High Density (hard), Cloud (soft).These groups should not be taken as though they are the same.
for those of you who use a regular box spring, or pillow top mattress, and only want a slight difference. the Standard models are for you. For those of you who want a more responsive (conforms, yet provides firm support) mattress, the High Density is for you. For those of you who want a softer mattress that still provides support the cloud series is for you.
The main problem with us the customer is that we judge all of these the same. problems continue before you get a mattress made from memory foam, do a little bit of basic research first. People have reported Respiratory problems. This is not the mattress' fault.
such foam types absorb any toxins off of your body. if you are near any chemicals this would be a problem for you. the next time you sleep on it you may come in contact with the absorbed chemicals. one of the biggest things that is absorbed is smoke, so smokers, or people who are near combustion beware.
secondly if you get any of these mattress' put them on a completely flat surface, such as the floor or one of their foundation. If you do not have a floor or one of their foundations, the mattress will sag and drop in the center many retailers require you to buy a foundation to avoid this problem. IF YOU HAVE A MOTORIZED FOUNDATION, do not *** anyone while the motors are in use or the mattress is in a lifted position. although *** is one of the main reasons we buy a nice bed, you need to have the mattress at a completely flat position before you bet busy.
the motor is made to hold static weight, not dynamic. once you start moving it puts a lot of strain on the motor. in fact imagine a static weight as X, the dynamic weight would be X*X, so if you only have 10 pounds of static weight, it is 100 pounds of dynamic weight. now take a 140 Lb man static is still 140 Lb the dynamic would be 19,600 Lb.
bottom line: keep you mattress flat when banging. I believe that tempur pedic make a nice product, the down side is that it requires more knowledge from the consumer, and comes at an ungodly price. Do not get pissed at the company. read the *** user manual, or if you really need to call their customer support, it is nice, friendly, and not out sourced to India.
they offer solutions to almost all of the problems mentioned on this site. and the best part of all free of charge.
