I have issues with My back that causes me to toss and turn all night. We
bought one of the Memory Foam Beds and I think we got a Lemon. After a few
years, My side of the bed has an obvious pit compared to my wife's side.
We were looking into the Select Comfort Sleep Number Bed with the Dual
Controls. Any opinions on this? Having the Dual controls, does it cause a
ridge in the middle of the bed?
Any Suggestions Welcome....
This is what we have for the past year and we love it.
We both sleep very well. We had a waterbed for years too but they just
don't hold up long term. They are nice in the winter though, with the

Our "Emerald Crown" is almost 15 years old and still feels like new. My next
matress will be a Kingsdown.
I had a Tempurpedic for 8 years after my chiropractor said I needed a new
bed. I think my back got progressively worse on that bed. I finally let my
son talk me into giving it to him (ha! a 16 yo with a tempurpedic!) last
month and headed to the first mattress store I ran into. Ended up with a
Sealy Posturpedic Pillowtop after laying on a zillion different beds,
including the Sleep Number. I LOVE it and have been enjoying the sleep
Lindsay Wagner promises on the Sleep number - for a lot less! ;-) No more

As I recall it has a guarantee that says if the edge drops by more than 2"
or something like that they'll just give me a new bed -- but I don't think

yet supportive as the pillowtop!
