    Need a new mattress. Help!

    Going to bed tonight I noticed my mattress is leaking. Yes it’s leaking. I’m done with having a water bed. Tire patches in the middle of the night, burping air out of the thing, not being able to move this heavy pig. Done. The frame is falling apart and the novelty has long worn off.

    Ive had one for most of my life, and don’t know squat about any other mattresses. Zilch.

    I'm 6’ 4” and current mattress is 62” x 84”. I need the length and cal queen would fit the bill perfectly, but extremely limited selection and good luck finding sheets for em on the cheap.

    So looks like I need a cal king and to get rid of some furniture.

    looked at the purple brand, leesa, Casper, tuft and needle, as well as the ghostbed brand.
    I found these other brands based on a review article about purple.

    Anything to stay away from? Anything else that should be on my radar?
    trying to keep it cheap as possible. Anything is probably better than the current setup. It’s bad timing financially speaking, but I’ve known this was coming for about a year now. Time to pony up and get something new. Should I go for 0% if I can get it? Or is there a catch I’m too stupid to see?

    I know I ask a lot of questions and usually end up giving my self the answer in the process. But I’m lost on this one. It’s 3am and I’m researching mattresses and running around the room with a tape measure like a maniac.

    Whatever the one everyone recommended on the other site from amazon is the one I got and 6 months in its awsome.

      I’m 6’4” and I fit on a standard Queen just fine. Can’t help you with bed type but queen is cheaper than a cal king as well as sheets

        We got the Zinus Green Tea because of the other thread (flecker's thread I think). We also got the 2 inch blue gel top thing. It's sitting on a zinus frame/boxspring thingy (which is awesome and silent).

        It's been about 2 years I think and am super happy with the setup, and it was cheap.

        Mattress was incredibly stinky for the first 2 weeks. We opened it up in a spare room and just left it there with the windows open.

        I think I'm as happy with the whole setup being totally silent as I am with the great sleep. Back feels better as well.

            I've had the Amazon special for a few years now. No complaints

              We got the Purple bed based on reviews, price and the fact we could get 100% money back if we didn’t like it. We’ve been happy with it for the past almost 4 years we’ve had it. The metal base they sell is a perfect height for the dog to stretch out under the bed, but the base squeaks horribly every time I get out of bed - if you go the Purple route don’t bother with their frame.

                Not cheap. I had no idea a bed could be this comfortable. I was down with purple but my wife said it felt unstable under her. She said she felt like she was gonna fall. She's the one who has problems sleeping, so I left it totally to her. Of course we ended up with the most expensive bed in the store.

                We went to mattress firm and laid on beds for an afternoon. Nothing wrong with 0%, just make sure you pay it off early.

                Edit: I just have cheap squeaky folding frame, but welded it up so it's quiet

                  I went to the local furniture store for our mattress last year. I am very happy with what we got. I asked the guy showing us around about the mail order mattresses (purple, casper, etc.) It turns out there's a ton of mattresses in that vein. I ended up getting something a little more expensive, but it came with a frame box spring thing amd they delivered it and dragged it inside for me so I think I about broke even.

                    We've got a purple mattress, and I built my own 'box spring' replacement out of 2x8's and 1x2's.... Aside from the 1x2's squeaking, it's a pretty decent mattress.

                      Amazon special here. Latex bed. Cali-King. It's like 18" thick. Been using it for about two weeks. Love it. Something like $515 too. Wasn't bad.

                        I am 6'4" and switched to a cali king and will never go back to a shorter mattress. The main issue is sheets and such you can't just get them anywhere you pretty much have to order them. I went with a mattress from Brooklyn Bedding and have no complaints.

                          We recently upgraded to a king size bed, bough a zinus king size bed frame and 8" zinus mattress. Couldnt be happier. We had a queen size zinus mattress before the upgrade, and we have a zinus pillow top over our mattress in our travel trailer. Eventually we will upgrade the mattress in the rv to a zinus as well.

                            I'm a Tempur-Pedic fan. $$$$ But when you have back issues, it's a life saver.

                              People still have waterbeds?
