Buying a Mattress

We need to purchase a new box spring and mattress set. I always hate the process because I feel like you can't tell what will be a good fit if you don't live with it for a while. What tricks do you have and/or what do you look for when you're buying a bed? What did you think you think you'd like in the store and discovered you hated once you got it home?

Little Things to Get Back in Shape / Encouragement Appreciated Also

Hi Moms, I need your support, and ideas/helpful hints/tidbits to get healthier, shed some inches, get back in shape. OH - just started walking at lunch at work (15 minutes).

Buying a Mattress

We are looking to buy a new mattress which I'm finding out is comparable to buying a new car. There are so many to choose from and each brand gives the mattress a different name depnding on the store they're selling it to.

It was comfortable in the store but I'd hate for it to lose it's shape after a year. The comments I've read online go both ways. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Need Suggestions on Buying a New Bed

I am looking for suggestions on a new bed to buy. We would like a king size bed and I have no idea what to get. Is there one that you love and recommend or one that you would never buy again and I should stay away from? We both prefer fairly soft/pillow top type and I'm willing to pay more if it's something we love. Thanks!
