Sleep Number or TempurPedic?

Looking to buy a new mattress and would like opinions on both, good or bad. Thanks!
Please post if you vote your thoughts.

I have some back problems and have heard great things about both but I want to hear from people who have actually used/tried them.

Re: Sleep Number or TempurPedic?

Never underestimate the comfort of a cheap mattress combined with 4-inch memory foam.

Sleep Number or TempurPedic?

I have a Sealy memory foam mattress. Bought it at Raymour Flannigan for half the price of a tempur pedic and it's VERY good. my advice to you would be to go around and try different mattresses. and remember, memory foam mattresses get very hot, though many new styles are incorporating gels to radiate the heat.

Re: Sleep Number or TempurPedic?

I had bad back / shoulder / hip problems from hockey that were keeping me from sleeping, like less than 20 hours of sleep a week. I bought a knockoff tempurpedic from a Sleepy's and it's all I can sleep on now. It's helped with my back issues and I can finally, for the first time in maybe 6-8 months, get restful sleep.

Re: Sleep Number or TempurPedic?

I've been using a TempurPedic for the last 8 year or so. To me the main benefits are you never have to flip or reverse the bed or worry about springs wearing out. Its suppose to last 20 years and I've never noticed a decline in how it felt over the 8 years. As for back benefits or helping a sore back I use a inversion table almost daily for back aches. I would get another one in a heartbeat.

Re: Sleep Number or TempurPedic?

I second the suggestion to go to stores and actually lay down on the different materials. I have a memory foam mattress..... not tempurpedic. It was my stop gap improvement mattress until I could afford a name-brand one. That said it's a huge improvement over my old mattress. I also sleep with a tempurpedic contour pillow and I can tell you right away that there is a large difference in the quality of the name brand memory foam vs. the off brand. Mine doesn't have a heat issue since it actually has ventilation channels cut through the lower foam level to help it breathe. My old dentist has tempurpedic exam chairs and they were fantastic. I actually took a nap on one one day when I had an hour and a half between a cleaning and a filling appt. after I worked a 24 hour shift. I could have slept on that thing every night and been happy.

I've also heard great things about sleep number beds, the best being that if you decide it isn't working for you you can adjust the bed to where you need it. If you have a lot of back problems that may be the way to go since you can play with it vs. being stuck with a single 'setting' for life. That said sleep number is now making a memory foam model so definitely worth checking out.

Beyond that it's all about what your back likes.

Re: Sleep Number or TempurPedic?

My buddies guest room has a tempur pedic bed and although it was kinda warm I couldn't get out of it in the morning. Fantastic lol.

No personal experience with sleep number but i know of someone who HAD one and got rid of it because it kept losing air.

I never noticed. Then again we used to have an 8" thick futon, not an innerspring so that could be the difference.
