As the owner of a mattress store, it falls to me to actually test each and every one of our products and mattresses. After all, I am the one person responsible for ordering and suggesting sleep solutions for my customers, so I should have first hand experience.
Over the weekend, I swapped out my last mattress with the Natural Silk Elegance from Bed In A Box.com. And after two nights, I can tell you that it's going to be hard to change mattresses, as this is easily the most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on!
- Comfort level - The Natural Silk Elegance is an all-foam mattress. As a back and side sleeper, it offers a "just right" combination of soft and support.
- Breathability - I tend to sleep a bit warm, but not an issue on this mattress. My back will usually be a bit clammy on a Tempurpedic, but my experience so far on this mattress, with the organic cotton flannel sheets from my store has been great. No heat!
- Old injuries - I had a very severe shoulder injury several years ago, but I like to sleep on my side. No issues with this mattress!
- Sleep through the night - My personal testing method is whether I sleep through the night. I recently took one brand out of the store after trying their bed for a month. It was solid latex and it left me feeling sore in the ribs but more importantly, I would wake up in the night
