Who here sleeps on what? Do you prefer spring coil or foam? Do you sleep on a high bed or a low bed?
I myself have slept on one of those typical American style coil mattresses, you know, they kind where you need a ladder to get up! However, for the last 5 years when I lived in Germany, I had a foam mattress close to the ground, best sleep I've ever had. Now, back in Canada, I'm back to the coil mattress and I just can't sleep on it.

As I mentioned abover, I prefer the foam mattresses, because that's all you need, the foam. If you look at the coil mattresses, then you also need a box spring and one of those mattress pillows, seems kinda silly to me!

A firm queen size high bed. Its about up to your hip, and I can sit on the matress and dangle my feet. Its great. And I have only fallen out of it once, and that hurt. I was reaching out for my mobile, and misjudged where I was on the side of the bed. Won't be doing that again. :>

I need a new mattress. I currently have a firm seven year old coil spring queen size. I sleep on my sides. Every morning, I wake up with sore shoulders and hips and a sore lower back. I don't want a coil spring type...that's what I have now.
What type should I get? Memory foam (Tempraupedic)? Air chamber (SelectComfort)?

I sleep on a medium firmness twin mattress. I'm not sure what brand it is, but it is an innerspring mattress on a box spring. On top of that I use a firm pillow for my knees and two wedges to help prop up my back.
For my next bed I'd like to get a full size SelectComfort... or a Craftmatic adjustable... but I need to save a *lot* of money, first.

I've a Beautyrest with a semi-pillowtop, not the real poofy stuff, but a medium padding. Nearly 10 years old, and because I turn it every 3 months religiously, there still aren't any worn spots, and I sleep on my side too.
The best investment I ever made bedding-wise, was a merino wool mattress pad. I've had it a good 20 years, and it's still going strong. Pops into the washing machine and dryer, no problem. It cost half the price of the bed, but I figure has amortized out to just a couple bucks a month over the life of it. Stays on the bed year-round, no problem.
