Best investment we ever made!

We purchased our mattress and adjustable bed 2 1/2 years ago. We are getting ready to make our next purchase for another bedroom. We live in NC. There were no REM mattresses to preview in our area. To say my husband was skeptical about buying a product we had not previewed would be a HUGE understatement. I went online and read nothing but excellent reviews about these mattresses compared to other companies who had many negative reports. So we called and spoke to Randy. We made multiple calls to CA with many questions before we decided to purchase. Each time, Randy was nothing but patient and so willing to answer our questions. We had to wait about a month to receive our bed. Each day, my husband would tell me that he sure hoped the bed was going to be a good one. The delivery men brought in one section of the king size mattress at a time. While they went outside to get the other half, my husband ran and jumped on the mattress. He was amazed that it was so hard when he landed, but seconds later he melted into the bed. It will sound ridiculous, but we spent the first three months eating, watching TV, and sleeping on the new mattress. This is really surprising since my husband loves his huge TV in the living room. After the first night, my husband said, "I just cannot believe how comfortable this bed is and how good I slept. I am amazed!" He kept saying the same thing every night. When we went on our cruise for vacation, he said, "I am excited about vacation, but I just wish I could take my bed." When we got home, the first thing he did was lay on the bed and say, "Oh it's so good to be home to my bed again!" My husband has back and knee issues. He drives a truck. This has helped tremendously. Before he thought the Sleep Number bed we had was good, but he says there is no comparison. I have stomach issues and pressure from lying down makes the pain worse. When I sleep on the REM mattress, my stomach sinks into the mattress with no pain. I also have night sweats, but they are not as bad on the REM mattress as other mattresses in our home. There is no difficulty getting out of the bed due to sinking down as there are on other memory foam mattresses we had tried. Due to my husband's snoring, we are not able to sleep together now. Thus we have had to take turns sleeping on the "good" bed. He said, "There is no need for either of us to be uncomfortable. Let's get another REM mattress for the other bedroom." We plan to eventually put them in all four bedrooms. This will sound funny, but we have everybody come lie on our bed and try it out. The quality of life this bed has added for our family is remarkable. We get a full night sleep and feel ready to face the day. I am a kindergarten teacher and I have a very active job. It is so nice to lie down and turn off my busy brain in total relaxation. If you are pondering over whether to purchase this mattress, don't wait any longer. My husband has thanked me numerous times for insisting on buying this bed. Even the sheets and the pillows are heavenly. It is the BEST investment we ever made. You will not regret your purchase...we didn't! Aaron and Laurie N.C.
