Excellent Value But Not Perfect

The Englander Tension Ease series has additional model names depending on the store where it is marketed (like many mattress manufacturers) in an attempt to reduce competition and confuse the consumer trying to comparison shop. We have the king size pillow top version; has the individually pocketed coils, some gel and some memory foam. What we like is the softness and freedom from the back pain and hip pain that we had on a 4 year old Simmons Beautyrest that had developed severe body indentations and therefore was replaced by the store with this recommended mattress. My objections to the Englander are that it does retain body heat, so eventually we wind up throwing off the blanket some nights, and it has a large hump in the middle, possibly because it may be made of 2 twin size coil spring units attached in the middle. Since we don't sleep in the middle this does not matter to us. The outer casing was not sewn perfectly, as the pattern of the material does not correctly line up at the seams, but that does not seem to affect anything (possibly an appearance issue only) but nonetheless is a quality control issue. I am looking to buy another one of these for a different bedroom, as I am quite satisfied.
