Sleep Sack aka Hammock

Our purchase of the iComfort Prodigy was a result of an exchange of a totally unacceptable innerspring mattress, exercising our "one-time comfort guarantee". Our salesperson assured us that, to approach the feel and comfort level of our old mattress, we should seriously consider a memory foam product. The concept of memory foam or any foam mattress was originally a negative concept to us due to the reported "hot sleeping" factor. We were introduced to the IComfort line by our salesperson who described the addition of gel to the memory foam to reduce the feeling of overheating while maintaining the reported positive features and support of memory foam. We advised our salesperson that a firm mattress was a absolute because of our sleeping preferences. Our mattress at home was a 19 year old Simmons "Beautyrest Silk" purchased new, rotated and flipped regularly.but was beginning to show signs of breaking down. We seemingly laid on every"firm" mattress in the store so many times that, after awhile, shopping became a blur. With the assistance of our salesperson, we left to consider the Prodigy, described to us as a "medium firm" mattress, one level softer than the Genius (which later we discovered was in error).The Prodigy was selected because we sleep in a cold room and felt the other model under consideration, the Genius, would be too hard in our cool environment based on the feel of the mattresses in the showroom.. We returned a couple of days later to make the purchase of the Prodigy, expecting some changes when the mattress was "broken in". What we didn't expect was the was the extent of changes that would occur over time. The mattress sleeps hot, offers no support unless totally on the edge, remembers exactly where the body was, is, has been in the past, and, without a doubt, will be for the duration of the mattresses life. Rotation of the mattress is the only option for changing the feel and action of the mattress, but this is only very temporary. The sensation of sinking in sand is probably the best choice of words to describe our nightly experience. We are unsupported, overheated and unable to move freely in bed, waking with sore backs and an ever increasing sense that we wasted $2000.00. As we write this review, we are awaiting delivery of another new mattress, from another manufacturer, counting down to the last night we will spend in this hammock, and remembering how good our old mattress still felt compared to what we can seemingly purchase now.
