What kind of mattress pad should I get for my dorm?
My dorm bed's mattress is really uncomfortable – it's like sleeping on a hammock with springs sticking to my backside. I want a mattress pad which is fixed (which will not sink in). Possibly one that is affordable ($ 200 or less) that I can use for more than a year. Any suggestions?
My friend was in the same situation, but because he had an almost antique bed … The second night I slept at his place and he had bought a memory foam mattress pad. The difference was incredible … but true! So I've supposedly really great mattress … It should be, it costs an arm and a leg. But for 3 years now (and I've only had it for 5 years), every morning when I awoke, I had lower back pain, neck pain and shoulder pain. Actually the whole night, there was always my subconcious knowledge that I have not slept well, and the discomfort would penetrate my sleep deprives me a good night's sleep. So I went out yesterday and bought the same memory foam mattress pad as my friend. I am now a big believer! I slept through the night, without feeling any pain anywhere, and when the alarm went of this morning, I had no pain anywhere. No kidding! Get yourself one of these … and if your mattress is hanging like a hammock, so like someone else already said, and put a piece of plywood underneath to stop it. And then put the memory foam on top. You will be amazed! Oh … almost forgot: We have both bought the mattress memory pad at Walmart. It is $ 109 Canadian (so less in the U.S.) for a queen. I'm not sure if I remember correctly, but it seems to me that I remember that Having seen 49 $ + / – for a double bed size. It comes in a box and with mattresses in the linen section. Oh .. One last thing: my oldest daughter goes to university in autumn, in a dorm room, just as you are about to do. She lay down on my bed last night after I had made the bed with memory foam pillow and she loved it … enough to ask us for one of her dorm. I swear … one last … My youngest daughter who is 13 going on 14 tried it … and said that she went to bed with me. Her father could go to sleep in his bed! She wants one too. Good luck in school!
