Which mattress for a teen girl?

Firm, plush...what's the best? DD15 needs a new mattress and I'm looking for a budget friendly twin mattress.

I don't think we can really tell you what type of mattress she would prefer. I would take her out shopping and have her test different ones out to see what she thinks is more comfortable for her.

I must admit I was looking to go the 1-800 mattress route.

You can have her test a few to see what she prefers without needing to buy and they go and order thru 1-800-mattress.

Please remember that that name on the mattress will most likely vary at each store you go to. We learned this when shopping for ours. It makes it incredibly difficult to compare models.

I am not sure a mattress is something that I would order without seeing or testing first. If you want to return it who covers that cost?

We're looking for a new mattress for DS19. He got his when he was four and says it's too firm. He wants something softer. He's already tried out a few, but we haven't done any serious shopping yet. I prefer a more firm mattress. DH likes a slightly softer one. We have a dual-controlled sleep number bed. I keep my side at 75; DH keeps his at 65.

Ask her what she wants in a mattress. Firm? Soft? Springs? Foam?

I have a memory foam one and it is the comfiest mattress I've ever had. It did cost a bit though.

What about getting a gel/foam topper instead of a new mattress?

My DDs mattress (plush) from Costco that cost just over $100 is far more comfortable than my fancy $2000 king from a furniture/mattress store. Ugh. Guess where I'm buying my next bed.

I'd highly recommend bed in a box if you find she likes memory foam/temperpedic. We tried out different types of mattresses in the store, almost bought a really expensive one at the mattress store, then did some research at home and settled on Bed in a Box. We did some research on the website Sleep Like the Dead (top site for mattress reviews and info) and Bed in a Box was top rated. We are very happy with our purchase and after suffering through 6 months of sleeping on a lousy interspring mattress in the nursery last year, I will be buying a new twin from that company when baby #2 comes along.

I did this for my son when he wasn't comfortable on his bed and it worked like wonders. Get a good one, at least 4", the thin ones don't make much of a difference.

Is that your son in your signature? He's a handsome boy!!

Our daughter has a 2" on on her bed and it's great. She has our old mattress set that always gave me a bad back and I can sleep on that bed now without issues. I like a really soft mattress though and that one was always way too firm for me. We have a Sleep Number bed, my Sleep Number is 25 .

We replaced DD16's bed last year. I don't know where you are and if you have Jordan's Furniture, but we bought a Jordan's Furniture store brand memory foam. She loves it. She tried several mattresses in the store and liked this better than any of the more expensive ones. Works for me. Just an FYI - my 16 yo is tiny - 5'1" and 100 lbs. Don't know if this would work for a larger kid.

I looked at the link here is a BIG problem:

"Rotating the mattress occasionally can help maintain comfort and support, say owners. The beds have a one-sided design meaning they are no-flip."

Biggest regret ever was the last bed we purchased ( not from here ) years ago..and I cringe when the commercials come on about a mattress being over 8 years old and what is in/on it now ..

We bought a pillow top never dawned on us that you can't flip the mattress over. I am going to be very cautious when we replace the bed that we get a mattress that we can flip over for even wear.

I bought my DD a mattress from Amazon that was memory foam, made in the USA, and only $150. Our $1000 mattress isn't nearly as comfortable! Amazon has some great mattress deals-- a lot of them are very highly rated by customers so you can check out their experiences, too. I don't think I will ever go to Sleepy's again.
