A Mattress or Futon for a College Student?

Alex writes:


Hi Pete,

My youngest will be heading off to college soon.

I need to get her a bed for her dorm, and we are looking to avoid memory foam.

I don’t want to spend a lot, but it needs to be supportive, comfortable, and last her for the next few years.

We’re debating between a regular mattress or a futon.

Do you have any suggestions for my new college student?

Thanks, Alex

Hi Alex,

We have excellent values for each option.

We carry a good quality, old fashioned, two sided mattress…using an individually pocketed coil unit and upholstered with high density polyurethane foam.

The pocketed coil contours to the shape of the body and maintains the natural alignment of the spine. These mattresses contain NO Memory Foam.

Of them, the Brolynn Plush will be the most comfortable.

Shown here:
Old Fashioned made Two Sided Mattress that you can flip. Strong coil unit and NO Memory Foam. Durable for Plus Sized People. Works with Adjustable Bed Bases.

To support that mattress, I suggest “The Basic Black” Platform Bed.

Both, the mattress and the platform are inexpensive. They provide all the support and comfort she’ll need for all of her college years.

That platform bed, shown here:

We also have a nice selection of reasonably priced Futon Frames and Futon Mattresses.

These are ideal as a space saver…providing seating and sleeping in the same space.

The futon frames, shown here:
Curvy, fun and hip the Naples frame is a clever combination of transitional sleigh arm styling with a hint of modernism. The soft round arms of the Naples make a bold design statement.

The futon mattresses, shown here:
The Wolf USF 6000 is a 6″ futon mattress comprised of Wolf’s own cotton batting that provides a medium soft sitting and sleeping surface.

As you can see, through those links, that there is a nice selection of frames, mattresses and colors.

Be it the futon or mattress, FedEx Delivery is free and there’s no sales tax.

We can arrange to have these items delivered directly to her dormitory.

They only take about a week to get. So, let me know when you need it to be there, and I’ll time it to your needs.

Thanks, Pete
