Ginger. Its best to go and test the bed. No point looking at the technical specs. I did that when I was looking for a mattress. BUT nothing beats laying on all the beds in the show room and get a feel of the firmness, softness, comfort, etc...
What is the latex topper for? Can it be used as a bb's mattress? Thick enuf?
U mentioned that "u and ur hubby happened to purchase the same product but your dealer willing to allow offer to open for queen or king size". Is it you or your dealer who is selling the extra piece???
I'm quite clueless in my search for a mattress, but I think from one of ur postings above tt ur fren got the mattress with bedframe & other stuff at $1600, it seems like it might be worth it to get fr Shawn.
PS: I'm only looking for mattress, how much would it roughly cost?
have you tried the sealy mattress? I've went to Harvery Norman @ Millieum Walk for a test and found that Sealy mattress is the best of all. Once you tested Sealy and tried others, it's like the rest are of "no-interest".
Just imagine eating "Häagen-Dazs" ice-cream versus "Magnolia" ice cream
I agree that Sealy mattress is not bad. My only concern is that Sealy does not believe in having pocketed springs... To me, pocketed springs are important so as to have undisturbed sleep. Hence I chose another very comfortable mattress, Kingston Executive from Dunlopillo.
I second on your statement above. In fact, most "branded" mattress have already included that feature, which is included in part of the features.
For Sealy, that feature is called "Shock Abzzorber Sprung Foundation".
At first, i do find pocketed spring are good when i was looking for mattress. However, when I do more market research and tested out each individual brands at their respective showrooms, I found that pocketed springs has this disadvantage- after long term (>5 yrs), the spring coils will tend to entagle which may not recoil back to its original state of rest. For sealy coils, they do not have such disadv dur to their unique coil mechanism.
Of course, this is something I cannot comment as I have not used the bed for so long time. But end of the day, i do urge ppl during selection, do based on your own comfort levels and budget. Don't for a cheapo one and end up hating the quality of mattress.
To me , sleep is very important. So take care in choosing.
I totally agree with you. It is very important to choose a good mattress. A good sleep is a grest start to a new day. It also makes a great difference to the backrest one gets. Thus, one should buy the best mattress one can afford, according to preferences.
wanted to buy dunlopillo mattress for my in-laws but heard from my friend who work in dunlopillo that they are clearing all their old model matress now as the new lanuch mattress is coming in early next year. He told me to put on hold first. Anyone heard of this before?
hi june, i think it doesn't matter whether its new or old model. It's what you like and prefer and what suits your lifestyle. mine is an old model but it has both sides with a layer of latex whereas some of the new models have only one side with a layer of latex and they don't encourage flipping the bed. They actually say there's no need!
I noticed that Shinebride have nt replied to ur postings since May.. Anyway, I just drop by to share with you this website i came across that features almost the full range of Dunlopillo mattress.. http://dunlopillo.dewnature.com/ You can drop them a mail if u are a keen buyer. My fren managed to get quite a good price from them. Enjoy shopping!
Apologies, I have been missing for sometime. Went overseas on some official matters and just got back last month. Did not have time to get into the forum till now....so if you require Shawn's contact urgently, fastest way will be to email me at [email protected]. Let me know if anyone is still interested.
Think the best for sealy is at IMM the Sealy mattress gallery. We bout our's @ ackerman and it seems that the similar range of wat we bought is $100 cheaper for the king size. Pls be careful where you buy from. Never buy without checking the prices @ different location/outlets.
Have been tracing the archive and wondering anyone still interested to share the good fortune. I am buying dunlopillo due to its quality after trying at Centerpoint.
Anyone kind enuf to share the contact of Shawn( which shinebride shared)
thx in advance
well let me give u all some advices i have done research for the 3 Ss(simmons ,sealy,serta).
For simmons they r renowned for the support for their original pocketed coil technolgy .Simmons is the first that bring in individual pocketed coil decades ago it is the orginal only orginal pocketed coil are pre-compressed. I know u all dont understand. For example when we pre-compresses a coil from a 7 inches(Simmons have the highest coil height in the market) to a stardard height simmons set, the coil actually will be insisting on getting up so we slp on the mattress we can feel the support.Imported from USA,Japn,Korea,Canada,OEM malaysia,OEM China n OEM Thailand
Sealy entered Singapore market not very long Sealy are renowned for their Posturepedic coil we call it open coil all the coils are fully connected with wire.Posturepedic coil have sensory arm n triple off set it is said to be able to adjust to the correct alignment for our body.Sealy mattresses are mostly very comfortable.Sealy is the world's best selling mattress. Total Sales figures (world no. 1) Sealy + its two other sub companies.Sealy also have very wide price range(cheap to very expensive)as compared to Serta n Simmons.Most range Asemble in Thailand.Only some Unicase(expensive) from USA
Serta is the youngest in Singapore mattress industry compare with the other 2.Serta is renowned for its mira coil technology is also name open coil fully connected with wire among the coil, n their comfort level for mattress.If serta says it is no.2 no one dare to compete with it for comfort level.But Serta these recent years did come out with their pocketed coil series for their mattresses.Serta did also won the title (We make the world's best mattress).Most range asembled in indonesia. practise OEM(original equipment manuafacturing).Some from USA.
Well If u wanted support higher can go for Simmons,if u wanted Comfort level higher go for Sealy or Serta open coil are used to make soft n comfortable mattresses.If you want support n no motion transfer between u n ur partner can go for Individual pocketed coil.If u only more concern about enjoying of comfort level 3 minutes before u slp u can go for open-coil Sealy or Serta.Only Simmons USA range can be compatible to Sealy n Serta for the comfort level.If u r more concern about the 8 hrs of sleep u will need good support u can go for Simmons.Choose a mattress according to what your needs.Hope it will help u to choose a mattress wisely
We bought Dunlopillo CONNOISSEUR (18cm full UK Talalay Latex) before the price goes up (confirmed).
Originally also thinking of getting Dunlopillo Duchess, then the salesman told that it is with pocketed spring. I prefer full latex, as I slept on full latex mattress for over 25 years, and fell in luv with latex matttress. Latex is better than pocketed spring.
My rationale is: better get a high quality mattress and sleep for a lifetime, than to change the mattress for a few times. This will also save me time, effort and $ (GST, transport cost, potential of ever increasing selling price, etc..) in the long run.
AMK has a store which has the best price so far, even cheaper than those sales advertised in newspaper.
