I've always had back problems, and no matras seemed to solve this. Most of them only made it worse, until one of my friends said I should try a Tempur matras. It was expensive, very expensive even, but it is totally worth it. The first night I slept on it, I could feel that my body had to adjust to it, resulting in even more back pain, but after a week on sleeping on it I could already notice the differences! No more back pain!! The bed is soft, might be a little soft for some people, but it has good support and is very comfortable. As I said before, it is very expensive, so I would try other other matrasses first and see which one is more comfortable, before buying a Tempur matras. But if you do have the money and you like a matras that is a little softer, this is definitely the one for you.
