Tim - no logo of an owl, says comfilux or something like that (Im too lazy to go look!)

Yes they are warm but not overly so. As for IKEA, the ones i tried out where mega cheap, not even remotely in the same catagory as the one i ended up with.

Are you sure that wasn't an advert paid for by Ikea. The reason I ask is because they are notorious for their poor quality mattresses (allegedly)

Sound Asleep (So-2-SleepNI) have a factory in Bangor with a showroom (Balloo Industrial Estate) and a showroom in Newtownards (South Street), they have a great range of memory foam and latex beds and also do organic mattresses plus offer a great service. Definately give them a try. Highly recommended.

Lidl are doing double memory foam mattresses next week for 89.99. Apparently they are brilliant as my friends bought some last year when they had them in. I got a "bed in a bag" from the Bed Shed a few years ago and it cost 217 for the double and was money well spent. My friend reckons that her Lidl one is better than my Bed Shed one. Check out www.lidl.ie

Maybe someone can answer my question ....

Memory foam mattresses mould themselves to your body shape, right?

Surely then if you sleep on your stomach you risk the mattress moulding itself round your head .... and before you know it you could suffocate in your sleep?!!!



Judging by the way my OH sleeps I'd better give them a miss!!

I'm afraid they are NOT memory foam. They are cheap reflex foam mattresses that are only available in the Republic of Ireland or Northern Ireland.

Only if you sleep with your nose down on the mattress.

It should be for that price .

As for the guarantee, did you read the conditions? I can't find the terms and conditions for the 10 year guarantee anywhere on their site. :confused:

I have degeberative disc disease and also a spinal injury from a car accident.

Two years ago I bought a sprung mattress with a top layer of memory foam - it is BLISS! Whenever I go away I can't wait to get back to my own bed!

One thing to look for - mine has a smooth top surface which is great ....
But some have fancy quilted stitched effect - or even buttons that sort of thing really does defeat the object. So look for a smooth undecorated surface for a really comfy sleep.

Can't say I've been overly warm, but I understand that the 100% memory foam mattresses can get overheated.

If the mattress is made well then most people don't even notice the hand tufts. These are an essential essential part of the construction of pocket sprung/memory foam mattresses unless it is the encapsulated type. The encapsulated type have much smaller springs that don't really do much, but are more so that the manufacturer can say that it contains pocket springs.

I wouldn't be able to sleep on that - I would be up all night thinking about the money I had wasted. 1500 = 10 x 150 beds and even if they only lasted a year each who would need the 10 year guarantee?

I couldn't sleep on a 150 bed:confused:

You spend a quarter to a third of your life in bed.

It pays to be comfortable.

At 150 per year, its less than 3 per week, I think thats pretty good actually.

You really should read the terms and conditions. Many companies have extended guarantees that are on a sliding scale. For example with a 10 year guarantee that you have had for 9 years, you would actually have to pay 90% of the replacement cost. This is a clever way of keeping you with the same company.

MSE member was caught out by the same thing with Silentnight.
