Junked the extra foam and bought the perfect mattress for us

We sleep on a platform bed, so there is no box spring layer, just the mattress on a hard platform of solid wood. We are both over age 60 and we weigh 125/170 lbs respectively. Before buying the Beautyrest Phenom Crossover mattress we had a regular coil spring mattress with a purchased foam/gel layer on top of that. The extra layer lost support in about 2 years. So we decided to go all out and buy something much better. $1,100 later we were in sleep and comfort heaven on our Phenom. Five years later and it is still in excellent shape and perfectly comfortable for both of us. Very little motion sensed by my sleeping partner when I turn in the bed. This was the most we've ever spent on a mattress by far, but it turned out to be totally worth it. The built-in foam layer feels warmer for me than her, but it's fine with A/C in the bedroom.
