We coughed up the $2500 for a mid range tempurpedic mattress, hoping it would solve our back problems as advertised. Many people love theirs so we thought we'd be okay.
Not so. They will take the mattress back for exchange if you return it before 90 days, but it took us about four months to realize that it was hurting us. When my under-50 husband started rolling out of bed groaning every morning, we realized the bed was damaging us. Your butt sinks further than the rest of you by just enough to put strain on your lower back.
It was agony. We took a huge bath on the thing and had to pretty much give it away. It's one of the most expensive mistakes we've ever made. Replaced it with a Original Mattress Factory ordinary firm and we've been much happier and getting out of bed for years now without the pain and groaning.
We can NOT recommend the tempurpedic mattress in anyway, though we will recommend the memory foam bed pad for those who have pressure point issues with their current mattress. Those give you just enough padding to cushion without contorting your body out of whack.
Skip the Tempurpedic unless you've slept on a friend's for many many weeks. It's cumulative damage and hard to see coming by just a ten minute try out in the store.
