Hello Chartreux! Yes!...We liked the Allura also, and bought it in the king Size. It has the Pillow top built into it. To me, it added that first extra softness. My wife and I both laid on this bed for an hour, and it was the best of what we tried. I really wanted the Grand Bed, but it did not come in a split King. Ours has is considered a dual King, with is two twins put together to form the king. We also went ahead and got the works on it, motorized frames with the vibrator option also. It was a pretty penny, and we still cant believe what we paid for it, but oh well. So Chartreux,
I think you are right on the money with your pick, and you have 90 days to return it if you don't like it. Take care my friend. Sorry it took me so long to return your answer, but I have been struggling here, and have been hugging the bed, and sleeping a lot.
Also, none of the models come with a frame in the original price. There are prices for the mattress first, then you can add options to any of them.
The other bed we liked was a brand called comfort select., but I think they were pretty expensive as well.
Chartreux, which size are you looking for? Several of the men here at work, bought the basic in a Queen size and only paid around $2600 for them. You might want to try one of them, and make sure you get the 90 day return policy. You can sleep on it for 90 days, and then if you don't like it, they will come pick it up and return your money. I do think there is a $59 fee you have to pay for them to pick it up.
Chartreux, if you lived close to us, here in Kansas, You could just come on over and take a test ride on ours. Of course we would make sure you had clean sheets, as well. It would be great, to meet you and your wonderful husband. We have met Privey and her husband, and now we are all very good friends. I think they are coming back this next weekend, so that I can take her grand daughters HS Senior photos.
I also agree, that you don't have to get the best model to get a good nights sleep on one of them. We happened to have a little extra money left over from the sale of my business, and they had a special running, that allowed 36 months, at zero percent interest.
Good luck to you on your search for a decent bed.
