We purchased our mattress set in June of 2006, while I was pregnant. I demanded a firm mattress, mostly because I'd had bad experiences with squishy mattresses, and I couldn't get out of the bed as big as I was getting with this pregnancy. We were shown the Katherine Firm set, and purchased it. About a year later, both my husband and I were complaining of back pain when we woke. I could not believe that after only a year, my mattress was hurting me the same way my 10 year old set had done before we had gotten rid of it. No way! I started going to the chiropractor, and just chalked it up to getting older.
Fast forward to about 2 months ago. We are unable to sleep more than 6 hours at a time, because the pain in our backs would wake us up. I decided this was ridiculous, and I contacted the Mattress Firm where we purchased our set. The salesman gave me paperwork to fill out, which I did, and mailed in. A week later, the home office called to set up an appt. for the inspector to come and take pictures and check the indents. He noted there was not a single stain, nor discoloration on the mattress. The inspector found the sag to be 3/4" on both sides. He told me I'd hear back with the decision in 24-48 hrs. 2 weeks later, nothing. I emailed the home office and asked where the results were. They said they had been mailed the week prior. I emailed back and asked them to simply tell me what the report said. Instead of that, they asked me what my address is. Um hello, you sent someone to my house to measure the mattress, of course you have it!! They offered to fax the report to me, which I received today. So, even though my back HURTS and I am seeing the chiropractor regularly, I am screwed out of $1400 for this craptastic mattress set.
