<:@thismyusername You want to know more about the mattress? Well I consider it money well spent. I takes a bit of getting used to, but my weird hip pain I have had for a few years has all but disappeared after a few weeks of sleeping on it.
@pburkej I hadn’t ever heard of it until your post… am shopping for an additional mattress currently thanks for the info! I tried one off those gel grid things for office chairs… very interested in a bed sized one now
@thismyusername Honestly I liked their video with goldilocks, and I liked the policy they have that if you don’t like it they donate it to charity with a full refund. It is unlike any other mattress I have slept on. The mattress is a little bit bumpy on the surface but you hardly notice it. It is an odd hybrid of a super soft top and firm underneath, so I am not sure it is for everybody. My last mattress had divot where I slept, because I am a big guy. But this feels awesome in comparison, and seems to have helped out with my hip and back issues.
This animatronic inflatable dragon that I apparently didn’t photograph well, so here’s the link to the Lowe’s website. Their photos aren’t great either, ugh. There’s a purple swirly light inside of its stomach and its wings move.
Ah, found it. I just knew there was a good place to leave this (it’s a nice, thoughtful article on how cooperation between the red team and the blue team, aka the offense and defense, do better with a bit of cooperation):
Hey @Barney, just a heads up… there is a store online that only sells purple things… just wanted you to know. I can’t recall the name but it’s a purple store basically. I was reading another thread and it reminded me of this!
The bed’s fantastic. No motion transfer, so I sleep like a rock while my husband does his ridiculous dolphin-flip sleep calisthenics. And unlike Tempur Pedic or the “cooling gel foam” topper we got from Costco, it doesn’t accumulate heat.
The pillow … ugh, it’s complicated. It’s a complete disaster of a $100 pillow and I wouldn’t recommend it, and yet I find mine indispensable for non-pillow reasons.
It’s softer than the mattress and feels amaaaazing to touch, but in practice it crushes my ear when side sleeping. If I try to sleep on my back, it pushes my chin down and doesn’t support my neck. So it promotes both snoring and neck pain.
The thing is that, like the mattress, it’s fantastic at heat management. I have trouble getting to sleep when my feet are hot, which is often. So I keep my purple pillow at the foot of the bed, where it can steal warmth from my feet. I think my husband uses his for heat management somehow too.
