Very soft. Just got back from a month long trip to China and I couldn''t believe how hard their mattresses were. Sheesh. If I ever go back, I''m taking one of those mattress toppers in a suitcase just for that. I even tried bundling clothes under me to keep from bruising my ribs - it was like sleeping on solid rock.
Soft. My partners always insisted on extra firm mattresses. Now that I''m single, I bought a nice soft mattress and I get the best sleep ever.
Firm support yet a soft pillow cushion on top, thermapedic shit doesnt work for me
Yes, HARD on the inside, soft on the outside!
soft for me
Something soft and pillowy on top of something firm and supportive.
I know what you''re thinking
Overly soft mattresses make my back hurt. And that seems to be all they make now.%0D\
I had to search quite a while before I could find a good firm mattress the last time I bought one.
hard as a rock. I hate slumpy soft mattresses.
Agree with R5. Soft top that sinks to a firm, supportive surface.
I like my mattresses how I like my men---firm.
Hard mattress. Soft pillows. %0D\
Soft. I''m a swimmer and I have a good back. I''m thin, I need the cushioning to feel comfortable.\
Hard mattress is good for people with excess weight and bad core strength.
I tried a few mattresses at this store that comes highly recommended. The store has firm mattresses with toppers sewn in, but I don't like how soft they are. Plus, thick topper seems to defeat the purpose of a hard mattress.
So, what I'd like to do is to buy an extra firm mattress and then choose a topper that I like for a bit of softness. Does that make sense?
I like a hard man on a soft mattress. Or a warm pup tent, in a pinch.
My mattress is fucked up and full of lumps. I also will be shopping for a new firm mattress in the near future.
Only thing that works for me is soft/hard.
I use a big hard high quality futon and top with 3 inches of foam and an 8 inch down mattress.
If you want to sleep on your back, which kind of mattress should you use? and yes I'm doing it to prevent getting sleep wrinkles on my face lol
hard as a rock. I slept on the floor for years. Honest
I think if you sleep on your back or on your stomach, hard is better, R21. But if you sleep on your side forget about a hard mattress... your hips and your shoulders will hurt.
R19 overused is it.?;)

That's what I finally got -- a legitimate "sleeping futon" (which is heavy-duty and not made to be folded into a couch), then topped it with 3-inch memory foam.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
