Recliner or adjustable bed?

Oct 21, 2016 10:58 AM

I'm laying in bed super uncomfortable wondering which would be more comfortable for me right now. I have a regular bed with tons of pillows and a neck pillow.
Would a recliner be better for support or will a adjustable bed be better. What do you you guys think.

I've been sleeping in a recliner for over 6 years now and I have to say it has it's pros and cons. The thing I don't like about it is that you can't move. You're pretty much in one position unless you get one with multi function or you get real stiff

Hi, I'm new but I had to comment. An adjustable bed will do you a world of good. You may pay a pretty penny but, trust me it is very worth it and it's an investment in your health and your future. I bought one about 4 years ago and it is the best money I have ever spent. Sometimes I have to kick my fiance out of the bed because I like to put myself in what I call the full Taco lol. I put my legs all the way up and the head of the bed all the way up and I squish myself so that I crack my back... then I slowly let the bed down as it stretches me out. It is a great feeling. Mine also massages and has a very dim light underneath for those nighttime trips to the bathroom. :)

Welcome Samantha..thank you for responding it doesn't matter how long you've been part of our family we love to hear from everyone. I've been looking at all the tyoes of adjustable beds and it does seem like it can be very beneficial. The price does cause to really evaluate but like you mentioned it seems as if adjustable beds are equal to hospital beds but way more comfortable.

Thank you for the welcome. :) I got my bed from Sleepy's. I actually went in at tax season expecting to pay a lot more for a higher brand bed but, the sales person showed me all of my options and I actually ended up going with one of Sleepy's brand beds as opposed to a TempurPedic. My mattress itself has something like a 30 year guarantee and I'm sure by that time I'll have but probably two more of these LOL. The only drawback I will tell you is the fact that the frame is steel and it is incredibly HEAVY... moving it usually takes three grown men to move it carefully, two and they struggled immensely. Sleepy's is also nice because they are willing to haggle on the price and it includes setup and delivery. Just a bit of info for you. It was a really cool experience because going there you get to try all the beds and do all the cool stuff, I highly recommend it to see which type of memory foam you prefer.

My door to my room (this house was built in 1940) has a very narrow door frame. Anything I've ever had delivered was a nightmare trying to get it in. Unless it came in twin size, I couldn't use it. I don't even own a bed and when I did I'd look at it from the recliner and cry because all I wanted to do was lay down and it was too painful. (Believe me, the recliner is no better and I never get to really decompress my spine because of it). Glad I've got 2 recliners because the other one is a medical one and it has a zero gravity position along with heat and massage. I still don't get to lay flat for long and I can no longer lay on my side or my stomach because of my spine. Hope you find what you're looking for and that it brings you heavenly slumber every night. {{{Hugs}}}💕😊
