I am in the market for a new mattress set, and want something pretty basic and firm. About 9 years ago we splurged on a high-end Stearns&Foster set (very thick, pillow-top, Australian wool) that I have never liked after about the first few months; I would never buy another S&F based on this bad experience. I just came back from a vacation where both the hotel bed and the bed on the cruise ship were far superior (and the cruise ship bed is just a mattres on a flat steel frame!). I took a quick look at lunch and the cheapest Simmons Beautyrest in the store was my favorite; of course, I know a quick look is not going to tell me much. I'm not interested in expensive memory foam or latex beds. Does anybody have any suggestions of what to look for or specific brand/models to consider? Thanks in advance.
