I need a new mattress for my lower back. I am torn between memory foam or air foam.

    I read that air mattress is excellent for lower back pain but is high maintenence. Memory foam is less maintenance but will start to sag sooner. Anyone get a new mattress recently?

    Tuft and Needle. I've been hearing a lot of commercials about them.

    I've had memory foam mattress for about 6 years. It gets a little hot sometimes, but it's been damn nice.

    What about reviews? All commercials are supposed to be good.

    When I got my memory foam I was advised to get one with a cover made from bamboo because it wouldn't trap as much heat. Seems to have made all the difference, because I'm also a sweaty guy and I don't find the mattress hot at all.

    Also, thumbs up for memory foam for bad backs.

    They make memory foam hybrids that have cooling material on top. My best advice is go to a place that let's you try the thing for at least 30 days, no questions asked

    They give you free shipping if you don't like it. Good luck getting it squished into a box for shipping!

    This. I have a hybrid - coils on bottom but majority is memory foam & then the cooling top. My back has never been better!
