Listen. Matt and I have different preferences for sleeping. He likes a hard bed (crazy!) and I like a soft, gushy bed that envelopes you when you lie in it. We bought a pillow top mattress for our queen bed when we got married. Back that up, my very generous parents purchased the mattress for us since we were 2 broke college kids. You can not flip a pillow top mattress. So, for 2 1/2 years, we slept on this pillow top mattress. Matt's side got an indention which we were later told ALWAYS happens with a pillow top mattress. Matt, as a result, constantly had a back ache.
SO, when we bought house number dos, at the same time we purchased a king bed so both Bear and Midas (who was shortly coming to live with us) could sleep on the bed. We decided at that time that we should buy a firm mattress and a topper to go on it and make it a bit softer. Now, my back always hurts. We have to get another padding or something.
If we had infinite funds or won the lottery, I would purchase us a Sleep Number and then we could BOTH be happy! However, if I had to pick one of us to have a back ache, it would DEFINITELY be me and not him. Thus, the purchase of the hard mattress. Love him!!! :)
