Of course you don't change it everyday lol but a mate of mine told me that a mattress needs replacing every 10 years or so? Do you guys do the same thing? What are the criteria do you look for in a good mattress? I've heard things like Memory foam, spring-based, etc., and I've no idea what these are

Any help is really appreciated.

I've had the same mattress I had since I first got my bed :lol: But my dad did get me a memory foam topper mattress nearly 10 years ago but I doubt I'll be getting a new one. I love the memory foam topper so much

I generally just flip mine. I've had mine for about 10 years and it's still going.

When I have visitors ( ) they always tell me how comfy it still feels xD

How was it? I mean, is it very comfortable?

Had mine about 15 years, it's hardly the most comfortable thing anymore but I don't really feel the need to change it.


That spiel about having to change your mattress every 7-10 sounds very much like corporate bull**** designed solely to sell me something I don't need....

Only ever had 2 mattresses, my current one is one of those extra-thick ones - I don't think I'd ever go back...

Yes it is the topper goes ontop of my old mattress which IMO is more comfy than a full memory foam mattress. I've tried those but I really didn't like it

Hmm I'm not sure, I prefer softer/bouncy mattresses and that memory foam one was a bit too stiff and I sunk in a little too much. A spring mattress with a memory foam topper is the perfect mix for me

I've changed mine twice- first because I switched from a single bed to a double bed (full memory foam mattress) now that's changed to a half memory foam which is much better for my back :yep:

I got one when I got a new bed. It's a memory foam one and it's really comfy. Shame I couldn't take it to uni. I've also got memory foam pillows which everyone I know hates, but they're the best pillows I've ever tried.

I m agree , sometimes buying a mattress was worse than buying a car, in terms of being able to compare different models.
Foam (whether memory foam, PVC, latex, whatever) is always going to be warmer than springs, since it's a great insulator, compared to a spring mattress which is basically hollow. Some foam mattresses are designed with air channels to improve circulation, which might help. I like cotton Serta http://jonsguide.org/best-serta-mattress-reviews/ good quality and budget
