I second the sleep number, because you can adjust the firmness on both sides.

Next time, I’m going with one of the foam mattresses, like eve, Casper, etc. they have a long trial period, so there’s nothing to lose.

Yooj improvement! We're both sleeping better, and at that price we can buy one every six months and it's still cheaper than most of the common mattresses.
Yes, I recently made a switch from a futon to one of these and am amazed at the comfort. Different brand but also inexpensive and, of course, easy to handle.

I don't have any back issues though, FWIW.

My GF has the top of the line Tempurpedic with back massage and I don't care for it that much. it's too firm for me. She likes to sleep on a incline to prevent snoring.

I want that bed but I am afraid it will leak air over time, does it do that at all?

[HERETIC FLAG ON] I prefer plain hard side frame waterbed mattresses, without the wave blocking add ons. And for an added treat, I lay on a vibrating pad (chair sized) and bliss out on the ripples.
(Not sure what the current cost is, but I bought replacement queen size water bed mattresses from Wally Martski for $49)
If you can't find a cheap waterbed (used), you can always make your own from 2"x10"s and plywood.

I don't buy TempurPedic -- way too expensive because they advertise heavily -- because generic memory foam mattresses work just fine for me. I also like the flat you can put it on a platform bed with no box springs.

I will warn, however, that a friend of mine became seriously ill from a memory foam mattress. He was sick for a year and a half with a disease no specialist could diagnose. He was at his wit's end when I suggested he consult with a "House M.D."-type doctor in New York City who solves tough cases. Together they eventually figured out the problem was his new mattress. They replaced it and his symptoms gradually went away.

I tried a sleep number and hated it.

I have degenerative disc and chronic costochondritis in my ribs.

It makes it difficult to find a mattress because my back wants a firm mattress and my ribs want a soft mattress.

So I never could find a number that I was happy with.

The other thing about them is my wife always had her side set at a low number which made me feel like I was sleeping on a hump. The person with the lower number ends up having more space to sleep in and the person with the higher number always rolls towards them or off the bed in the other direction.

Beyond that, their customer service leaves a lot to be desired. We wanted to exchange it for a different one after a week and they told us, Sorry but their "guarantee" doesn't cover "special edition" beds. And ours was a Silver Series, hypoallergenic model.

They don't tell you that at the store when you buy it.

As a result, I've been sleeping in a recliner for a few years now.

We're thinking about trying a Purple mattress but I'm wary of spending a lot on another gimmicky mattress that I can't sleep on.
