I just bought a queen size Serta i-comfort Revolution.  I brought it home and when I was setting it up, I noticed that the zipper that attached the mattress to the base (I got the motion base) had a few inches extra fabric on the base side.  The queen size mattress protector and sheet set were loose when I put them on.  Turns out that the mattress is a few inches short on each side (Measured 58"x77" instead of the standard queen size of 60"x80")  The base measured properly for a queen.  So it definatley is bigger than a full, but not quite a queen.  The consumer tag on it said its a queen size...  

I went back to a Mattress Warehouse and measured the one in the store and it's the same.  The Salesman said it was becasue it's foam and has rounded corners.  (rounded couners might give you 1/2" but no way 2 or 3")  I measured other mattresses in the store and they were correct.  Even a tempurpedic queen measured as a queen.   Any body else notice this?  I really hate having ill-fitting sheets.... 

Are mattresses made from recycled materials better for the environment?

With the increasing focus on sustainability, should we consider using mattresses made from recycled materials as a more eco-friendly option? How do these mattresses compare in terms of comfort and durability to traditional ones?

If you're on the heavier side and struggling to find a comfortable mattress that can support your weight, I highly recommend looking into hybrid mattresses. These mattresses typically have a combination of foam and coils that provide both support and comfort, making them an ideal choice for heavier individuals. Don't waste your time and money on a mattress that will sag under your weight - invest in a high-quality hybrid mattress for a restful night's sleep.

While it may seem like a no-brainer that recycled materials are better for the environment, the truth is a bit more complicated. While using recycled materials can reduce waste and lessen the demand for new resources, the manufacturing process of these mattresses can still have a significant environmental impact. It's important to consider the entire lifecycle of the mattress, from production to disposal, before making a decision on whether recycled materials are truly better for the environment.

Some people argue that sleeping on a firm surface like the floor can help alleviate back pain and improve posture. What are the potential benefits and drawbacks of ditching your mattress for a minimalist sleeping setup?
