Mattress Review – Sleep-Number c3

This isn’t you’re usual cigar review, but what the hell.

Just over 10 years ago my wife and I purchased the cheapest mattress set we could find. So believe it or not it should have been replaced long ago.

My wife has been pestering me for years to purchase a new mattress. A good mattress. A $1,000 plus mattress. You’ve all seen the late night commercials for Temperpedic and Sleep-Number.

We’ll being the cheap ass I am I’ve put her off and put her off. Hey, I’ve had cigars to buy and smoking events to attend.

Well finally, after calculating a divorce lawyer was going to cost me more than a new mattress, I agreed.

My wife and I both have bad backs so I went to the one source I know with a worse back for recommendations. C. Gar. suggested the Sleep Number bed.

After hours of internet research and C. Gar’s recommendation I decided the Sleep Number bed was the one we’d buy.

So a couple of Saturdays ago we made our way to the nearest Sleep Number store. Tried a couple and even had the nice lady calculate our Sleep Numbers.

After finding out the remote on the c2 doesn’t have a display I decided to upgrade to the c3 which does have a digital display.

What can I say, I’m a geek and I want to watch the numbers go up and down.

Yesterday the nice people at UPS dropped off our new mattress. It comes in four boxes and my daughter was convinced no way a mattress set would come out of this. It took about two hours to remove the old mattress and set up the new Sleep Number mattress, but it was all in there.

While I assembled the Sleep Number, I quickly realized C. Gar had talked me into buying a glorified air mattress. A f*$king $1,000 plus air mattress.

I’m an insomniac so about 2:00 am last night I finally went to bed. I quickly fell asleep, which doesn’t happen very often. OK, it only happens after a few drinks.

This morning when the alarm went off I was in such a deep sleep I didn’t even know where the f*%k I was. The Sleep Number (Glorified Air Mattress) is like sleeping on a f*%king cloud.

Oh sweet Sleep-Number, why did I wait so long?

    Thanks Stephanie. I do have one complaint about the bed. My setting is 50 and my wife’s is 20. When I go to bed before my wife I keep having nightmares that I’m falling off a cliff. I think it’s because her side is not as inflated.
