I've purchased my share of beds over the years. Everything from a water bed in the 70's to a cheap Ortho bed when I moved out on my own for the first time. A cheaply made bed will feel good for a year or so and then start to contour to your body shape where and how you lay. Eventually leading to a lumpy, uncomfortable, misshaped mattress. Our previous bed was a Serta, my wife and I bought about 15 years ago. That was the first high quality bed I had ever purchased and It was well worth it. I wanted to be sure the new replacement bed was at least as good. We hit the usual retail outlet shopping places to get some idea of what is available and at what price. Most of what we liked was pushing close to $2K and that was just too much to spend. I started to look on line and Overstock had some great prices for the same quality beds we had seen. One big issue we have with bedding and for that matter any furniture now days, is the chemical fire retardant they use. Those chemicals are toxic and to sleep on it means breathing in and exposing your skin to all those toxins daily. When I saw this bed on the website I read all the specs on it as well as many reviews. I did not see anything regarding fire retardants used. I posed a question about it on the website and got a Positive answer back in a few hours. Not only do they not use the unnecessary fire retardant but the cotton fabric is all organically grown. That was the key selling point for me. The bed is incredibly comfortable. Firm but not like sleeping on a mattress with a plywood board under you. My wife has some back issues and her hips often hurt in the middle of the night. Since we started sleeping on this bed she has had no problems and sleeps the night through. We are very happy with this bed and with the bed frame and Free shipping, It was half the price of what's available in retails stores. Thank You Overstock, we'll be shopping your website again in the future.
