My son purchased a mattress in Austin, Texas sometime around 2003 or 2004. It is the best mattress I have ever slept on but I am unable to find this mattress. Below is all of the information I could get off of the tag. I was wondering if you could help me figure out who made this mattress or where I can find it?
Reg No. TX 4068
number just below a bar code: 006393807
left hand right corner: 4/6 PMM extreme right hand corner 0309943 SOMERSET Very bottom of the tag left hand corner: Label 1: 19 1/28/04 List 51 Code 0
Thank you, Pat

Unfortunately the Law labels do not offer much to identify the mattress except for it's size(4/6 is the full size). The word Somerset may be a clue but the brand is not mentioned so it is like searching a for a needle in a haystack.
Do you have anything from the time of original sale or are there any other indicators of brand on the bed? On some major S brand beds, they usually have a satin ID label of some kind sewn to the mattress as well giving the name and comfort level. WIth out that info, the best you can do to match it up is to find something equally as thick and try a few options to see if any feel similar in firmness/softness.

Hi Pat, You're wasting your time. There's no way to find an equivalent to that mattress. You'll have no trouble finding people who will draw comparisons, but the quality won't be the same. There has been a steady decline in quality across the board over the last 10 years. What you want is no longer available. Period.

It's so frustrating to find something you love and have it discontinued! The mattress industry is known to change product lines every year or 18 months...cost of raw materials goes up, so mattress prices would go up as well....so, change the model. The new "comparative" model will be the same price as a mattress in the previous line, but will have less and/or cheaper materials to meet a price point. The mattress you like will have been long discontinued. The best thing to do is go to a retailer and try some beds!! Comfort is such a personal decision...don't be influenced by friend's opinions and don't have a machine that measures "pressure points' make the decision for you. Just lie down and breathe...your body will tell you what's comfortable.
