A dreamy mattress … that is a dream for us for sure. A dream so much that we are willing to blog for a chance to review a dreamy mattress!
Here is our bed … not bad, right?
Look again …
Yes, that is a Brian dent and a Beth dent with a big lump in the middle. If I sit on Brian’s side of the bed, I just sink way down into the bed. If I try to snuggle up to Brian to watch TV, I am stuck on that big lump of nice unused mattress. Well it should be nice but it is so high up that I eventually give up and roll back over to my dent to go to sleep!
psst … I know these sheets are ugly! Brian picked them. I will admit they are soft and comfy! Plus they are better than the rust orange ones he bought at the same time! He washes the sheets. Pick your battles, ladies, pick your battles!
We loved this mattress when we bought it. I think we loved it because this was our first King size bed and that meant the dog wasn’t pushing us off the bed all night! That was years and years ago though. This bed has seen its better day for sure and our love for it has definitely faded as its love for us has faded by giving us lumps and bumps to sleep on all night.
Maybe you only sleep on your bed but this is a quick look of what happens on our bed (it is completely G-rated!!!) While our bed is not a family bed at night … it sure is during the day!
All of that doesn’t even start to explain that a new mattress would help Brian’s back and knees that still hurt from his active duty Army days of carrying 200+ pounds of equipment and his gun. He still has problems falling asleep some nights just because he can’t get comfortable. I can fall asleep in about ten seconds flat on just about any night but if my hip is hurting me, then I can spend hours laying there wondering when my alarm will go off for work the next day! Oh a dreamy mattress would be so dreamy!! One sheep … two sheep … three sheep … oh wait what is that dreamy mattress?
Why would the iComfort mattress would be perfect for us?
The iComfort features Serta’s Cool Action™ gel memory foam! This is the world’s first memory foam infused with Serta’s exclusive MicroSupport™ gel for up to 2x more support and up to 7x more cooling comfort than ordinary memory foam.
This would be perfect for us as Brian is always about 20 degrees hotter than me and always thinks the bedroom is too hot. It drives me nuts that he can think it is so hot every night. A bed we can both be comfortable would be amazing!
Superior Pressure Relief
Since I was pregnant with Matthew (he just turned three), I haven’t been able to sleep on my right hip. The pressure that the mattress puts on my hip leaves my hip aching all day if I lay facing the middle of the bed. I tend to be a side sleeper so this is limiting. Plus it limits cuddle time and well every couple needs cuddle time even if it is watching TV together before you pass out!
a Serta Motion Perfect® Adjustable Foundation, which allows you to adjust the head or foot of the mattress using a wireless remote.
Brian sits in the bed to put heat or ice on his back or ice on his ankles (as seen in the video!) He claims all but one pillow to do this most of the time so when I finally finish a blog post at 11pm for the next day, I have to wrangle my pillows from him just to go to sleep. The ability to adjust the mattress up so he could sit and read or ice down his back would be a huge life changer for him! Plus I would get my pillows back and would forever be thankful for that!!
If you are already planning on mattress shopping this Labor Day holiday weekend, be sure to keep reading the details of the Sears mattress sale! We love to shop at Sears because of the quality they have. One day, we went to the mall to get Grace an outfit with out of town family. We walked into the Sears entrance and found a few clothing items that Grace liked. We then walked all around the mall only to end up back at Sears buying the dress Grace first saw at Sears. Plus Sears is my go to place for clothes for Matthew. I love the sales they have and that I can find him CARS shirts at great prices! You might even remember my mom back to school outfit was from Sears! The added bonus to shopping at Sears is that you find the great service and products in all of the departments including the mattress department!
Leave us your thoughts on the iComfort mattress and well if you bed is a jumping pillow too. Misery does need company some days! Please tweet, share, and like this post to help us get this blogger review (your comments count too!!)
I hope, hope, HOPE that you get a new bed, but I am still trying to figure out why you do not like the sheets.
Ange – they are just a funky green color that I wouldn’t have picked! They are better than the rust ones for sure! 😉
My bed has two very distinct dents in it too. Our once comfy bed is now all lumpy!
Shop with Me Mama says
Good luck to you!
Liz Ticona says
Love that it has the cool factor , hubby is always complaining it’s too hot and this would be the perfect mattress! Thanks for your great review! 🙂
I wish I had a pretty bed! I’ve always hated making mine since I was little
Kathleen Downes says
I love that it has an adjustable foundation. That would be perfect for reading.
Ain’t no water bed 😉
Joanne Williams says
You definitely need a new & deserve a new mattress!!! We still aren’t sure how we slept on our first mattress for 20 years but once you get to sleep on a new one it is more than amazing!! The Serta gel memory foam sounds amazing and makes me want to go to Sears to check one out today!
Michelle S says
OH how I wish I could get this mattress! I understand it’s worth the price if you keep it nice, but idk, I couldn’t justify spending SO much on a set lol.
This bed looks pretty sweet! We also have our personalized dents in our mattress, maybe we’ll have to check out this Sears Labor Day sale! Hope you get your new bed, after being active duty and active Mom you sure do deserve it!
I feel your pain! I have dents too lol. I have tweeted and shared hoping you get to review this bed. Love the Cool Action™ gel . That sounds heavenly.
We have a King IKEA mattress. I am not a huge fan of it, but it’s okay. I can definitely see the dents in your bed.
Janet W. says
That makes me laugh you have a “middle lump”. Oh so true… sadly ours looks the same way!
Sometimes in hotels, I sleep diagonally or across the bed to avoid the dents! Good luck!
claudia davis says
My bed has dents so I sympathize!!!!!
Elena G says
I love fluffy beds that conform to you 🙂
The iComfort Mattress looks really good!
Krys R says
Sounds like a great mattress. I hope you get it!
Marie Howard says

jen gersch says
this looks so comfy, hope you get it
Yes, our bed has the lump, too. This looks oh so comfy.
Dee @ Cocktails with Mom says
Oh how I feel your pain. I have bed issues as well. I don’t know who complains more, me or the hubs.
Lisa @ Oh Boy Oh Boy Oh Boy says
a good mattress really can make such a huge difference in how you feel.
Wow — that looks amazingly comfortable!
Ellen Levickis says
It took us a long time to find a matterss that worked for us both in looks and comfort. This one looks confy and nice, too!
Richard Hicks says
SWEET! I am jealous. Our mattress has two grooved caverns in it. LOL!

My bed is like an oven. The memory foam just holds onto heat and can be uncomfortable.
My son and his wife have a mattress like this and love it! Ironically, my mattress is the same one on which my water broke with same son. Terrible! Haha! Good luck to you!!
Diana Stanhope says
That sounds awesome! I could sure use a new mattress too. I hope you get one.
Good luck to you. We also have two “distinct” sides to our bed with a lump i the middle. I think that that glow of a king size bed has worn off now that we can’t sleep anywhere in it but in our own dents :o)
Kathy Pease says
hope you get this it looks so very comfy I can just imagine how wonderful you would feel waking up on this.like sleeping on a cloud. the wrestling looks fun too..lol 🙂
Sarah Yurga says
sometimes our middle lump is infringed upon by our kids…then there are 4 uncomfortable people. Seriously, as menopause approaches, I like the cooling factor.
I love that you can adjust the bed with a wireless remote. This sounds like a perfect match for my husband and I. My husband always complains that it is too hot to.
Lisa Garner says
The icomfort mattress looks so comfortable! We have the same issues with our bed. Our mattress is older and the springs are starting to go from the children being on our bed so much.
mary gardner says
i love that it has the “Cool Action™ gel memory foam”! That would make it extra comfy!

Can we trade?? I think I would get a much better sleep with yours.
My husband gave ours a good flip the other day because of his dent.
OMG!! Every time I go into the bx, or rooms to go or really anywhere they have that mattress, I lay on it and tell Chris that we NEED it! It’s cool and feels like it’s hugging you. Ahhh it’s so on my “dream list” 🙂
We just recently purchased (09/27/12) the Motion Perfect adjustable bed and IComfort Genesis Memory Mattress and so far it is just wonderful. We are on a 100 day trial and this mattress comes with a 25 yr. warranty and the bed (10 yrs.) It is a big investment and we truly hope it stays as comfortable as it is right now. Good Luck!

Serta iComfort mattress is the most comfortable mattress available. It’s always been the dream mattress for many.
