Question Mattress in a box

Anyone here have any recommendations regarding mattresses? Sister in law bought a ďhybridĒ mattress that has springs and foam I guess. What have yíall bought and how long did it last? Thanks for yalls input.

Had Purple, sent it back, had Nectar, sent it back, have Loom & Leaf now, and really like it.
The others killed my back.
I would wake up and feel like I had been run over.
Everyone is different though.
Try em till you find one you like.

Have a sleep number. Never thought I would spend that much for a bed, but have been happy with it.

Our current king and previous queen have been Zinus from Amazon and no issues with either.

Never heard of Loom and Leaf or a Zinus. Wife and I both have lower back issues now. We had a steamed and foster and I think this is a Simmons Black Label Beauty Rest. Obviously not working causeI haven’t gotten any better looking.

I have a tempur-pedic and love it. It was pricey.

We bought a mattress-in-a-box for a couple hundred at big lots for down at our coast house and I can hardly tell a difference. I would buy another in a heartbeat.

Tempur-pedic is too pricey for us but sounds like the box mattresses will work.

What should a person look for when shopping for box mattresses? Number of springs, foam thickness etc etc?

Is there anything in particular your looking for in the mattress or basing your purchase off of reviews only?

We have a purple and I believe the main bed is a Casper. Both are really nice beds. Wife likes the Casper better I like the purple better but both are awesome.

I don't know the brand of our mattress but I love it. We bought it from a a cheerleader fund raiser at the high school. It's a hybrid, very nice feel. I would by another one for sure.

Have had a sleep number for 14 years, Love it.
Too soft - air it up, too hard, deflate. Simple concept
I thought they were expensive back then but new ones are more so, should be cheaper but beats flipping the mattress or buying new.

I think purple had a 30 day return policy on their products at one point. Sleep on it for 30 days and if you don’t like it send it back. Makes you wonder if your getting a new or used mattress.

Illegal to resell. They have to trash or donate.

We went with IDLE sleep and so far so good. It's got the individual wrapped coils and it's one of the only beds in a box rated for heavy people (I'm 6-1 and pushing 200lbs) and it's flippable.
