Comment:
The reason the mattress sags is because the inner spring wrapping has been destroyed (torn). This occurs in response to twisting and turning in bed. I have one and have taken the binding loose to view the inside mechanics. The wire around the edges also is fragile in relation to movement. The design was nice yet the materials used were not functional for the application.

Comment:
Up until I was in my late 40s, sleep was a daily gift to me. And then, not so great. Last year at age 57, I needed to add a queen-sized bed to my guest bedroom, so I took my above average Simmons to the guest room and bought Q-S Stearns and Foster Joy for my own use. Best thing I've ever done for my self. I thought the days of falling asleep readily and waking up without stiffness were a thing of the past. I feel 25 years younger at 7 AM than I did 13 months ago. My mother really likes the Simmons Beautyrest she uses when here, but I feel like I'm cheating her when I go to bed.

Like others here, I spent lots of money on a Stearns & Foster thinking that it equalled a better mattress. My advice to you is to not waste your hard-earned money on a Stearns & Foster. Why?<br /><br />I am a fit single woman. I sleep on my back. I know that because the mattress is a pillow-top, it can't be truly flipped, only turned around (which I have done very regularly). Also because I know it can't be flipped, I have been moving around the bed on different nights of the week since I bought it to try to keep it from getting any kind of a dent in the middle. I am not supposed to have to do this but I figured and ounce of prevention blah blah blah .... <br /><br />It didn't help one bit. The only places on this awful mattress that don't have a dent are on the extreme edges where I am half-out of the bed. <br /><br />Remember - I've turned the mattress around regularly. I've slept sideways on the darned thing many nights. I've tried to fluff the stupid top (nearly impossible). I've even added a 3 foam topper. Nothing works to get out the dents. I am disgusted. <br /><br />Moral of the story? Don't buy this ridiculously expensive mattress. And get a mattress that you can flip (no pillow-tops). <br /><br />Sweet dreams to you. :)
