Great bed terrible store

I have gone through five beds in two years. The IKEA Halen is a God send for people who like a firm mattress but also need good circulation below the waist. LOL get your mind out of the gutter. What I meant is most firm mattresses will actually numb my butt when I get up in the morning. Like sitting in a chair too long. This is terrible for men especially if you have prostate issues. This bed seems to give enough support to resolve my lower back pain issues and allows enough circulation so that I'm very very comfortable all night. The bed may not last very long but after five expensive tries this one finally makes it comfortable enough for me to sleep. Special note: I have been sleeping in my guest room on a 15-year-old IKEA mattress that with a 1 inch memory foam topper has been a life saver because it actually was comfortable enough to sleep on. I do not know what is going on with Sealy or other standard manufacturers. I could not find a bed for under $1000 that was adequate like this IKEA Halen bed. And it was only 300. Suffice to say that perhaps IKEA has some integrity when it comes to construction of their beds. I believe that much of the mattress industry is criminal and deceptive. IKEA does not appear to be so. My only problem with this bed was purchasing it at the terrible store on Fenton Parkway in San Diego. The sales people were overworked and understaffed. It took three hours to get out of that damn store. The only way you can buy an IKEA bed online is if you have them deliver it $100 cha ching... You can not order on the phone or online and pick it up at the store. It's either pay for delivery or go to the store and purchase it there. Best to go in the morning midweek when they are not busy. Words to the wise.
