Do Your Research!

Todd and I have been experiencing an increase in back pain for about the last year. We'll we've never really been comfortable but it's been getting worst. The problem? Our mattress!
When Todd and I first got married we didn't have a bed, we actually slept on a blow up mattress that we borrowed from his sister Camille for about 3 weeks. I was trying to find something we could afford and came upon an ad telling me of a warehouse in Murry that would take the extra mattress sets that were the results of over stock, wrong orders, etc. We went, we saw, we bought the first King we laid on and that felt comfortable.
Now had we done our research completely, we would have tried some out at other stores near by, found out our sleep number to decide if we needed something, hard, soft or in the middle. But as most newly weds are I would think, we just wanted to get off the floor and into a bed as soon as possible.
The bed came at a steal of a deal, but when delivered, in order to get into the basement apartment we lived in, had to be slightly bent which caused a few springs to spring out of place. We would flip the bed every few months as instructed but the lack of support was starting to wear.
Now 3 1/2 months shy of the 2 year mark that we have had it, we wake up in pain, having a bear of a time just to move our bodies out of bed. We're trying to buy a memory foam topper through KSL just to help us get through 2 more years before we can think about replacing the entire bed.
So word to the mattress seeking pairs, take your time, find out what you like! I'm not saying the overstock warehouses are bad, in fact when we do go to look again I will peruse them again. Just do your research!
