    I love it. The one thing I will say is that it’s slightly more springy then I anticipated. We got the split king so it’s not an issue for us but I think if you got a normal king and was sharing it with a partner that you’d feel most of the tossing and turning they did.

    I’ve had a nest Alexander for the last three years. It’s comfortable and is holding up well. Probably would go firm instead of medium if I bought again.

    I came to the conclusion that there are a bunch of good brands and each one makes like 2 or 3 good models. Just do your home work and pick one. I don't think there is one best answer.

    People with a zinus are you happy with it or is it worth paying extra for one of the brands in the thread title/leesa?

    I have a signature sleep (cheap zinus equivalent) in a guest room and had a tuft and needle before I got a tempur in the master. I liked the signature sleep much more. It is on the firmer side, which I like

    Zinus is cheap af, good for a guest bed, but not for your master. Find something a lot better.

    Back in the market.

    Amazing to me how so many of these brands started out with maybe 2-3 different layers of foam, and now it's double/triple that combined with some kind of spring.

    Currently considering:
    Leesa Hybrid
    T&N Original or Mint
    Nolah Signature or Evolution
    Tempur-Pedic Adapt

    Has anyone gone from firm to soft or soft to firm? Our current mattress is an extra-firm 100% memory foam. When we got it the thing was like a board, then you kind of sunk into your personal little mold over a minute or two and passed out. That was pretty awesome. It has now softened up significantly and it’s not super supportive. I’m intrigued by the idea of a plush pillow top hybrid that’s super soft, but has support underneath. Looking for any real world stories of success or regret from changing.

    Prior to this bed I’d had standard inexpensive innerspring or softer, still cheap memory foam, so it’s hard to tell of the firmness or just the general construction of the mattress was what improved sleep quality so drastically.

    I’m seeing Saatva classic luxury firm as the top on a lot of lists.
    Also intrigued by Stearns & Foster and Restonic’s high end collections, but they don’t show up in many or any review lists. I have to imagine at 3,000+ price points they have to be excellent mattresses.
    Lastly, the custom Wynn Posturpedic gets rave reviews from hotel guests, so I’m interested in that as well. I’m still a little unsure of the long term support and durability of newer online-only players.

    At this point my list looks like:
    1. Saatva Classic
    2. S&F Reserve Hepburn
    3. Wynn Dream Bed
    4. Restonic Biltmore collection

    Thoughts from either of you on your experiences since the quotes above? Or anyone else with one of these or similar?

    Still on the Saatva and still very happy with it. Can’t beat the price point when comparing the level of quality of its competitors. It was at least 50% cheaper than the the more known name brand.

    Only advice I can offer is we got ours Black Friday last year. It was 2 grand and they were running 10% off plus Rakuten was running some Black Friday special for Saatva so I got another 240 back on it. We started with luxury firm, wife didn’t love that so we swapped out to the plush soft a month ago and are loving it.

    After 6 nights I can already confidently say that Saatva is an immediate and significant upgrade over the memory foam it replaced that cost twice the price. And so much cooler.
