    You mentioned you like the purple mattress. How would you characterize what you like about it compared to other mattresses youíve had?

    Iím in the market for a new mattress, and Iím comparing options.

    I typically prefer a softer mattress with good air flow, if possible, because the contact between my back and the mattress makes my back too hot.

    The Purple is much cooler than any other mattress than I've owned. First thing I noticed about it.

    You can get water-cooled mattress pads/covers that will transport away excess body heat and even actively cool (or warm) the water. I have one and it has vastly improved my quality of sleep here in dystopian AC-free Europe. Mine was cheap(ish) too, about $350.

    As long as this doesnít derail Andrewís original question, Iím curious how a consumer should discern good mattresses from the rest of the pack. There are many options out there and a visit to the showroom can only provide so much feedback.

    I brought one five years ago and it took about three visits and a good amount of research.

    Stay in a lot of hotels, and when the bed is good, ask who made it. The front desk will know.

    I spent a good few months moaning about my mattress after waking up with lower back ache every day. You know what fixed my mattress? Losing 15kg/33lbs. Same average mattress, no back pain.

    A new mattress would have been better.

    In a prison cell, no doubt.

    Yeah, but I just like telling people how much weight I lost.
