Just received my new twin mattress from "thefoamfactory.com". I chose the composite mattress that is 5" of LUX-HQ and 4" of 5 pound memory foam. I unpacked the mattress and let it "air up" for several hours before trying it out. It seems to be every bit as good as a high priced memory foam bed, but for about 1/3 the price.

I bought the heavy duty mattress cover with zipper from the foam factory, and then a high end mattress cover on top of that. Fitted sheets fit like a glove (that's why I kept the standard size bed rather than making in narrower).

Looking forward to completing the Dodge High Top conversion in the next 30 days or so.
I have been trying to talk DH into a new memory foam mattress. I finally got him to agree to a 2 inch topper on our current one. It is such an improvement that I have been obsessed with getting an actual mattress made out of the stuff ever since.
I love the toppers, haven't gone beyond them.

What's LUX-HQ? Is that the supportive foam?
A real memory foam mattress is da bomb. Best stuff ever. My iComfort memory foam mattress was on sale for around $700 for a twin size and it's so comfortable. I originally had one of those mattresses that had to be aired out for 24 hours to fully expand, but I didn't find that as comfy as the iComfort mattress which doesn't require any airing out or expansion. Just my own experience. Heck, even my pillows are $100 each by Temperpedic memory foam. Well worth it as the pillows don't sag.

Yes, it's the supportive foam. LUX-HQ is very firm and an excellent base for the 4" of firm memory foam.

Thanks! I have a 4", two support and two top with another 3" of tempurpedic topper. Very comfortable but I would trade 2" of support for 4".
The most comfortable thing I ever slept on was an air mattress. I don't mean that Sleep Number monstrosity that we had in the house that destroyed the nice even support with a beastly thick mattress cover that still created painful pressure points. I mean a 15 inch guest/camping model with nothing on it but a sheet and a mushy sleeping bag bottom that spread my weight evenly, with no pressure points. I slept like a log all night on that. Even with our current topper, I still have issues. If we ever get another camper, it will either have a full king sized bed that allows for two twin mattresses (mine will be an air mattress) or twin beds that allow me to have an air mattress.

The Sleep Number mattress...ah, a few year back I bought one thinking it would be the greatest thing since slice bread.
It was the most wonderful mattress I ever had...for about a month. After that I developed hip pain, shoulder pain, pain just about anywhere. By then was too late to return it for a refund : (
Same for me, but DH loved it. I often ended up on the couch. Hip pain for me. Just couldn't stand the thing. I figured it must have been the "plush" mattress cover, which took away all the advantages of that lovely even support.
