JenPen, I would say you are overdue for a new mattress. I got a new mattress and box springs in Sept. and am not really happy with it. Actually, I exchanged the one I originally selected, but am not happy with the second one, either. I wish now that I had gone to Sears and gotten what I'd had the previous 18 yrs., a Spring Air Back Supporter mattress & foundation. I need a firm mattress and this one really was great. I did have an egg crate mattress on it for some years, as my ex-husband and then ex-b.f. both found it too hard. Everything these days seems to come with a "pillow top." I don't like them at all--they just feel lumpy to my body when I lay on them--but that's what I got as that's all that Mattress Firm had in my price range.
Whatever you get, be sure there is a full refund or exchange policy at the store where you purchase it.
