How I Solved Our Sleeping Problem With A Tempurpedic Mattress
Tempurpedic mattresses were first imported into the US in 1992 by CEO Bob Trussell from Sweden. Originally developed by NASA for use in the space program the Swedes spent over 10 years refining the unique viscoelastic memory foam so it could be successfully used as a material for mattresses.
Bob had tried one of the novel mattresses while on a business trip and liked it so much that he became the exclusive US distributor of the Tempurpedic foam line of products. He first began selling them through TV and magazine advertisements along with some specialty stores and sales grew by 49% per year for the first ten years the company was in business.
I first found out about Tempurpedic products when I purchased a Tempurpedic pillow to replace the different conventional pillows I was using as they would give me a stiff neck in the morning. It was way more than I had wanted to spend on a pillow but after 12 years of use itís still like new and has been worth every cent I paid for it. I also noticed the Tempurpedic mattresses for sale but after seeing the price I just walked away as there was no way I was going to spend that much money on a mattress.
About 8 years ago we needed a new mattress and to make a long story short my wife and I tried two regular big name mattresses and one well known air mattress over a couple of years before we decided to take Tempurpedic up on their free ďtry at homeĒ offer.
At first it was kind of a strange feeling sinking down into the mattress as you settled into it but it definitely more comfortable than all of the other mattresses we had tried. The one thing we didnít like though was the morning backaches that lasted for a several hours each morning.
We thought we just needed to give it some time to get used to the mattress but after sleeping on it for a couple more weeks the backaches just wouldnít go away. Frustrated, I called Tempurpedic and was told by a customer service rep that sleeping on your side can cause a backache in the morning because you donít move around much at night on a Tempurpedic.
Great, I thought, we still havenít found a mattress that worked but the rep said the backaches should go away after a few weeks. Well, it took a few months for us to finally get used to the mattress but it was well worth it because we now get a great nightís sleep thanks to the Tempurpedic. This is without question the most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on and recommend it very highly to everyone.
Not only do you get a good nightís sleep the Tempurpedic doesnít have to be flipped or rotated, itís hypoallergenic and dust mite resistant. It comes with a 20 year warranty so we figured if it lasts that long itís just as cheap as having to buy a couple of traditional mattresses over the years.
In the summertime itís a little softer than I like it but itís still super comfy and in the winter itís firmer but after a few minutes you just melt right into the bed and it feels great.
Be warned if youíre thinking of buying a memory foam mattress as not all memory foam material is the same. Cheap foam can be too soft in summers and hard in winters because due to the lower foam density properties of the cheaper material. There is a reason why good memory foam costs more so be sure and check out the quality of foam used in the mattress you are considering buying or you may be disappointed.
Due to the enormous popularity of the Tempurpedic memory foam mattress many retail stores now offer them for sale so it can be as easy as making a quick trip to your local furniture store to try one out. Most stores have will have an in-home trial so you can have plenty of time to determine if a Tempurpedic foam mattress is the right mattress for you.
