I have changed 3 queen size mattresses in less than 2 months. They are all not comfortable and cause my back pain. I wonder how to choose a good mattress. The 1st mattress is too firm, and 2nd one is cheap and lack support. 3rd one is of good price and appears to have good support and soft, but after 2 weeks, I started to feel back pain. It seems still lack good support that cause my back and hip pain. I am 6'1 and 170 pds. I wonder how to choose a good mattress. Thanks for your opinion.

Any idea the type of foam that is used in these mattresses? From the sounds of it, it is not the correct comfort style for you. If its convoluted foam, try and set the bar at 1.6 or higher. The higher the density, the less air in the foam= more durability.
As far as the coils go, don't get wrapped up in coil counts. Focus on the type of coils (at least 6" pocketed if possible) and the gauge. A 15 gauge or lower pocketed coil is usually sufficient for the support system depending on how heavy you are.
Good luck with your search. If possible stay away from national retailers and look for a factory direct store that's near you. You'll probably save 50% and the quality will be much better.

In order to help, I would first like to know the answer to this question. Did you choose these mattresses yourself based on trying them in a store, or were they simply "recommended" by a salesperson? The best mattress for you is ALWAYS the one that feels the best for you and not one that a salesperson is "looking to move." Also. keep in mind that comfort and support are two very different things. A soft mattress, built well and used with a proper foundation, will provide excellent support. Always look for a non-prorated warrantee of at least 10 years. I hope this helps.
Good luck in your search !

York, check out the new reverie, you can adjust the firmness daily if you like. Also comes on an adjustible base. This may be your best option as it appears your body goes through changes and you need the flexibility
