She doesn't like my kids tuft and needle. We have a 

 

Our bed is at a 7 degree angle. upright 2x4, 3 1/2" apart. Queen. 

 

Currently choices are GravityLux, Yogabed, Layla, SleepEZ natural latex, Puffy and Level Sleep.

 

Which and why? Quick delivery before V day is preferred but not required. We sleep on a "cushioned firm" version of this guy now, Amazon.com - Ultimate Dreams Latex Mattress - Queen Size - Custom Comfort - Ask Chuck - Plush Mattresses, but it's lumpy at eight years old.

Dude, in your almost EXACT same sitch. Bought a sleep number king years ago. Night and day difference. The only, and I do mean only, downside is the middle gooch area makes it hard to spoon. 
upsides:

 she gets what she wants

You get it too. 

having some lower back pains? You can adjust for that.
oh. And moving houses? Easiest mattress of all time. Never throw your back out again by heaving a brick of foam up and down flights of stairs.

Nobody cares about me, you should know that. That's too much cash, and we're not moving anytime soon.

We're on year 11 of an memory top Englander king size. 

Allegedly you're supposed to get a new mattress every 10 years?  You can't flip our mattress due to the memory foam top, we were better about rotating it for the first few years.  We've been much more neglectful in recent years.  Now there's a pretty significant Lee-shaped divot on my side. 

We're talking new mattress, were hoping to wait until the new place is finished, but it's looking like it'll happen sooner.

I'm interested in the discussion, but Englander is pretty high on my list for a replacement.

You must be young. Or grouchy from a lack of good sleep. Jk.

We got the Sleep EZ 9000, which is a 9" mattress with three layers, firm, medium, soft. You assemble it yourself and can switch layers around to get it where you want it. It has a 1" thick pillowtop so the left/right latex layers can all be split without losing continuity. Right now both sides are set up firm/soft/medium to up the firmness. I really like it, but I may go softer. Those guys delivered super fast. Pleasant company to do business with.

We're thinking about bumping up to a king from out current queen.  We have a Sealy pillowtop right now that we like pretty well.  I can figure out the model if you like.  It holds us up and we're heavy.

What's the hive say about box springs?  With the advent of foot-thick mattresses this last decade, we're probably not going to get a box spring this time.

In reply to Duke :

To the first point: I already got the mattress...

 

To the second, mattress types differ, but for latex or foam I built the bed with 2x4 on edge with about 5" on center spacing. Nothing else.

You have chosen... wisely.

That's basically what the wife and I got. I looooove it. We may have gotten a 10". Not exactly sure. It's 3 layers, split down the middle.

I'm married, so inviting two twins into my bedroom seems like a poor decision.

Nice! From what I read and learned on the phone with them (They were very helpful) the added inch serves to make it a bit more soft if needed, so the nine was enough. I especially like the idea that it could be the last mattress that I buy, since I can replace layers in perpituity.

In reply to tuna55 :

That was one of the big selling points for me. Previously we'd had a nice memory foam, but over time it had begun to sag in the middle where I laid down. The ability to just replace ONE layer would fix that problem and ultimately save money.

I looked at some other latex manufacturers, but the only company that was nicer was notably more expensive, and their big thing was the ability to swap out sections to get different firmness under different portions of the body. That seemed to be more for people with particular health issue though.

I'm on their site. I can't find the sleep ez. 
is it 

organic

natural

roma

hybrid or

360 hybrid. 

It shouldn't be this hard to find a specific product on the company's website.

In reply to DrBoost :

I think Tuna and I both went with the "Natural". That's their standard model that has the customization options for two separate sides with three layers that can be mixed and matched.

Organic is the same thing, but more expensive for being organic latex.

Roma is a budget version with two layers that the only firmness adjustment is flipping which side is up.

Hybrid is using an innerspring base with latex on top to save money.

Correct!

Update: I was reminded via Angry's Zinus thread. This mattress is by far the most comfortable thing I have ever slept on. It remains every bit as amazing as day 1.
