I was still as confused as I was when I started and finally went by the advice of local guy who does our upholstery and is also on fab india list of approved vendor. And got a coir+foam combo with cotton quilting with total thickness of 5 inches. Costing around 12.7k

I must say.. No regrets and I am happy..
Thank you Anupam. That was a lot of research you did.

So, Coir+foam is what you also went with. Thank you for your inputs.

Hi Anoop

To be honest, I personally wanted to go for the pricey pocket spring topped with memory foam, as I was measuring the buy by my capacity

But then I came across this statement from a subject matter expert

"Does price matter? Not really: 78% of those who spent more than $4,000 said they were highly satisfied with their purchase. But 66% of those who spent less than $1,000 were also highly satisfied. Go figure."

And then my outlook changed...

Hope my experience will be of some help..

Went with all the intention to buy Sleepwell Apla DLX but at the showroom, while trying out Alpha DLX and SpringAir Orthopedic, every one liked the Spring Air better- so brought it yesterday. Delivery will happen next week.

Thank you for all the inputs

I will never ever buy sleepwell mattresses. Initial ones got saggy, i got a warranty replacement. Within next 1 year again the coir got deformed and hard. Now the whole mattress is wavy.

The experience depends on the material you opt for. Going by Amit's experience above, seems like Sleep Well are not good with Coir mattresses. In the same breath, they are very good when it comes to foam mattress. I have a full foam mattress from Sleep Well which has been with us for the last 6 years. No sagging, stitching issues, cloth tearing etc. Has held up really well for the last 6 years without any complaints. Spring Air seems to be a Spring Mattress so maybe your experience might be different and you might be pleasantly surprised!

What i have brought is bonded foam mattress - they come with a 5 year warranty, so I hope that will be something I can fall back on if any thing goes wrong.

Guys, what about the old style mattresses which are filled up cut-up cotton threads? How will they compare to a foam-coir mattress of today?

I'd used a rubberized coir mattress for around 6 years and because of recurring back pains, I was in the market for a mattress that will be gentle on my back.

I was initially considering some imported mattresses (Magniflex or Tempur) but dropped the idea for two reasons. One, because for imported mattresses I would be paying customs duty as a part of the price and second I wasn't too sure whether they are well tested in Indian conditions (usage etc.) and they are way above my budget.

Checked out some of the Indian brands at a luxury price point, like PEPS Spine guard, Spring Air Spine support plus etc. but wasn't too convinced. In the end I went with snoozer, thanks to some reviews on this thread could not be happier.

I purchased a posture care medium firm mattress, with a topper. I was told by the sales guy (a very knowledgeable guy about mattresses for a change!) that given my requirements and age group, I should go with something that is not too soft. But since I like soft surfaces, I purchased a topper which is essentially a 2 inch layer of soft cushion that will go on top of the mattress. The idea is that I can simply remove the topper when I feel that I need a firmer surface. Haven't had any back pain issues in the last two months

I purchased it online from fabmart got it delivered in if someone is interested, I can PM the details of the sales guy I'd interacted with.

Cheers,
Kiran
Thank you for the info Kiran.
How has been your experience so far?
Could you please PM me the contact details of the sales person?

Regards,

Atul

This is the exact model I brought - http://www.springair.in/ortho_medical.php (King size, 4 inch thickness). I am using a mattress protector on top of it.

This mattress is comfortably firm - haven't felt any back or body ache till now and the mattress seems to be holding good, though it is too early to tell. No lumps or sagging till now, even though my kid treats this as his playground. In short, happy with the choice.

Hi Anoop, How has your experience been? Looks like a good mattress although the images seems to be of poor quality. Did you consider a spring mattress?

Hi,
I did not consider a spring mattress since I have low back pain and the general opinion I got from all sources is that spring mattress may not be the right choice if you are suffering from back pain.

The experience is good, and the comfort is much superior to another coir foam mattress I own.

In the process of replacing my old kurlon mattresses.
After a brief survey, we have shortlisted Snoozer Classic and Kurlon Angelica (pocket spring mattress from Kurlon). But while there are quite a few positive reviews on snoozer, haven't been able to spot any reviews on kurlon spring mattresses either on this thread or on any other sites.
Is this Angelica a new entrant in the market?
Has any one here used it or has any idea or feedback about it? Any lead will be helpful.
Thanks.

2 Years back, I was at the same Juncture where I was confused on which mattress fits right for each of us. We built a 5 - bedroom house and each of these were in need of Mattress. Our search for one became more difficult as the bed sizes were little more than a King size and finding mattresses for these were an issue.

Narrowed down on 2 Sleepwell Pocketed Spring mattress with Memory foam layer on both top and bottom end. These 2 mattress requires changing in every quarter. These comes with which side/corner should be place during when.

These 2 Sleepwell's were 6 inches. Costed 20K each.

1 Bedroom had a custom made Mattress with complete Memory foam. This came with 8 inches costing 18K

2 other bedrooms, got them customized with Coir/Memory foam. which costed less. Each these mattress cames with 6 inches.

So far, I prefer the Sleepwell's Pocketed springs with Memory foams at both top and bottom layer. These are each to maintain. The pocketed springs comes with 4 small springs in one square pocket. These pockets of spring can be replaced as it ages without redoing the whole mattress.

So far NO Complaints and simply love the feeling of comfort these 2 mattress provide.

Rest are just fine without much issues or complaints.
