I feel like the $250 Ikea mattress is more comfortable than my $1200 beautyrest mattress. I like firm feeling. Is this odd?

Comfort is subjective and is not defined by price.


What specific mattress are you referring to? Need to buy one this weekend and have heard similar good things about affordable IKEA options




Nah everyone is different. I’ve been using a $30 chair from my dining table as my office chair because it works for me better than the $250 chair I had before.

lol.. I had the same + my office table was the Costco 4 ft table that you get for $39.99 instead of $350 table that had 4.8 rating on Amazon which I frustratingly returned after a week


I 100% prefer my $800 bed in a box over the $2000 beauty rest black st Regis edition I got.

I tried a bunch out. Went with sterns and foster reserve. $4900 msrp.

Cheap mattresses I’ve found I liked at first were totally different in a year Pricier mattresses were more consistent over time for me

Serta Wynstone II from Costco $499 worked flawless for me for 3 years. Go for the Medium Firm! No need to spend more than 500. is no limit to spend, unless you stop spending, there will always be one or the other expensive brands coming and selling you Cloud to sleep-on.

Not at all! I had the same experience with my Ikea mattress in college. I totally loved it (I forgot which one—whatever was the firmest). However after a few years it really started to get lumpy and soft.
