As many of you know, I am a BIG promoter of two sided mattresses; mattresses you can flip over since both sides are padded the same. All the heavily advertised brands are single sided. You can not flip over since only one side of the mattress is padded. This is done for a reason. First, the cost of making the mattress is reduced since only one sided is padded. Second, the mattress will wear out quicker.
Common sense: a two sided mattress will last longer. The big brands simply do not want mattresses to last as long as mattresses lasted 'Back In The Day". Do you see the big brands and big retailers promoting that you should replace your mattress every eight years? What's up with that?
Oh, and the so called 'mattress experts"? Many, when asked for a two sided mattress, will look you straight in the face and say, "Nobody makes two sided mattresses anymore. Our one sided mattresses are built so well, you never have to flip them."
Tell 'Em Flanagan has ten two sided mattress sets on the floor. And, they are all:
Built To Last... Not Built To Last Only Eight Years...
