So we're about to purchase a new bed, and are planning on getting a relatively well-padded one - described as "medium plush".
I've always had bog-standard beds, so no longer-term experience with plush beds (occasional hotel stays don't really count!) - can those with beds with relatively well-padded tops (ie, those which give that nice feeling of luxury) provide their experiences with such beds and whether they still provide decent back support?
I've been prone in the past to sore backs, and don't want to find out later on that the bed is an issue. I understand the argument that, underneath, the spring system is the same, and the topping affects comfort as opposed to support, but I'm never completely trusting of the spiel given by salespeople! (And I know some firms offer "trials" allowing you to swap the bed within a certain period, but this isn't an option with this bed, and it's the one we're most taken with.)
Thanks for any thoughts.
BTW, for anyone after a bed - I've been told that Farmers is having 60% off Sleepyhead beds on Thursday next week. I know 50% off is the standard "discount" (surely this must be close to the point of being the standard price?!), but an additional 10 percentage points happens far more rarely and makes a significant difference $-wise...
