    We bought a Nytex from amazon which was £270 and is the same spec as the simba, great mattress thoroughly recommend it.

    Now on our 4th SiMBA

    Fucking crock of shite
    What are you doing to them @Travisthedog ??

    I’m not doubting your ownership experience in any way, but we’re about 5 weeks in with our Simba (and loving it so far) and I can’t really see what could go so wrong with it.

    The foam comes apart at the sides and forms a bigvwhole which your right arse cheek sinks into.

    Or days of mattress killing sex are long gone .

    The while normally appears after about 6-8 months, you may find that it softens up significantly after this time to

    Why keep buying them then?

    Right, OK. Well, forewarned is forearmed I suppose. Have you had any comment from Simba over the repeated failures?

    Ah. I'd wondered that, but it makes sense to me to switch to something that'll last and be less hassle.

    Bumping this old thread.

    Our 2016 Mattress that came free with the bed frame is now well and truly knackered so it's time for a replacement.

    For the peoples out there who got a Simba/Leesa/Emma mattress how do you rate them long term?

    Having now had a cheap mattress for the past 5 years we would like to get something that's going to last a good ten years.

    We've had Loaf's 'Our Favourite Mattress' for 7 years and it's been fabulous. We'll probably replace it next year but just because of the 8-year rule. It's held up brilliantly, and we give it a decent hammering.

    I still like my simba, I’ve had it 3 years ? Only downside is that I’ve got a super king, and you have to rotate (not flip) the mattress each month and it’s pretty heavy.

    Actually, that's really true of the Loaf mattress, too. We just have a King Size and it's quite a physically demanding job!

    I've got a nectar mattress but I think it's the same thing. I'm used to it now, but when I first got it every time I laid on it id go ooo!
    At one point the divan broke (yeeeeah babyyyy) so we put it on the floor while the new one arrived and that was even comfier.

    We've been thinking about a new mattress too. Didn't know anything about Simba but I just had a quick look at their site. At least their price is reasonable .. a Tempur mattress is over two grand for a king size.  o

    Seeing as how they do the 100 night free trial thing why not just give it a go? 
    Ours is Tempur is super king. Didn't pay anything like that for it though ( although I think there are slightly different grades of what they do). The process seems to be that if you buy direct you can get the free trial or buy from a shop for half the price but no free trial ( just normal consumer rights). It's fine but I can't say it's changed my world although MrsTheWeary ( who spends a lot longer in bed than I do) loves it. 


    Still going strong after what must be 8 or 9 years. Can’t say we’ve rotated it very often. The current equivalent is about £3k online, 

    My sister has a bad back ( she has curvature of the spine) and ended up sleeping on an inflatable camping bed for years having thrown £thousands at posh mattresses.

    I've had my Emma mattress for over a year now, no regrets so far. They have some fairly frequent sales with around 30% off.

    We bought an Otty based on some YouTube reviews.   I’m happy enough with it but it’s really firm.  Too firm for my missus, who moans about it incessantly.

    Are all these companies - Emma, Nectar, Simba, Otty, Eve, etc - offering very similar products, or are there fundamental differences?  I see their ads and I gather they're mostly "mattress in a box" memory foam jobbies, but there's a temptation to think they're interchangeable when in fact some may be way better than the others.

    I'm well overdue for a new mattress, but it's one of those cases where you really don't want to make the wrong choice since you're going to be spending 25% of your life lying on the thing.

    I want a new Mattress, but I'm assuming there is some kind of factory direct company that does them for half the price without all of the guarantees of 100 day returns and the like.

    Obviously going back a bit but we bought our Tempur from a shop ( Feather and Black) at a discounted cost over the Tempur website. IIRC got them to include free delivery as well, just talked it down to a round figure. 
    Sometimes you are better off going into a shop.

    I had to read it very carefully to spot the difference! :D
