Presumably nobody doubts your experience as i geuss nobody here is in a position to.

However, it's simply inconceivable for you to have tried each brand, make, every variant, etc. And even if you had, that wouldnt make them bad, it merely would make them bad for you.

Long story short:
You found out that those YOU TRIED are unsuitable TO YOU, AND YOU ALONE (not counting people who may have similar experiences).

I always thought that most mattresses except some upmarket models are IMPORTED, but this may be an error

Many thanks, Mark. Indeed, In meany different shops I got the same expensive foam mattress (different brands). I will star trying Ikea, but was hoping to also have access to brands in other countries with totally different features to the swiss ones, as either they fit to you, or one is lost with no alternative offers here. At least with me. The swiss mattress enterprise has made a huge business; I bought Bico, Roviva, Elite, Riposa, Happy... Probably I forgot another one.

If indeed this is true, then you are either very difficult or rather stupid to have bought all of them. Maybe you should try them, for a little longer instead of just bitching in a generalised fashion


Common sense says: If you do not fail even once, then either you very truely lucky or somebody else took the responsibility. If you fail once, you can learn. If you fail a second time, then it's finally time to learn. If you fail a third time, it can be bad luck, but probably not. If you fail for the forth time even, then just forget it, you will never learn, and it does not even help to tell you the truth, that you are too stupid.

So let's count:

Bico 1
Roviva 2
Elite 3
Riposa 4 -qed-
Happy ... not really, am I right?
"..."


Really, just one honest question: How much did you spend for all these mattresses? During what period?

But anyhow, you are a funny man, you really made my day!

Re: Swiss mattresses are terribly bad, ALL

Didn't you say you slept well in the München Marriott? Chances are they, as an international brand that presumably wants to provide the same experience all around the world, use one bed+mattress provider for all hotels.

Your best bet may be to verify that assumption with Marriott and have one delivered to your doorstep. Even if they have multiple providers having it delivered from germany should still be cheap compared to what you already spent.

Or pick a random hotel in France, make sure you can order their bed/mattress, go test-sleep and enjoy the hit.

Re: Swiss mattresses are terribly bad, ALL

What on earth is this mousse everyone keeps talking about? We have an exceptionally comfortable Swiss mattress made by bico and I haven't noticed any mousse anywhere. If there was I would eat it and be fatter than I am already!

On a more helpful note john Lewis export from the Oxford street shop. You could probably get an very good mattress from them and get it sent out. We have had furniture sent here from them in the past.

You are right that the material is not the samewhne we talk about tempur, foam or memory foam, or latex... But within eac of these categories, all companies order theri custom made blocks for each mattress from the same company in the swiss german part (I will try to send the precise info later). For example, I did not find recently a springs mattreses without foam on the surfaces, and this foam is a clear problem. Spring mattresses seem to work well for me.



Hi, I see your point, but I hope to reach people that might need to get the info I am trying to share to prevent them from useless spending and dispair. I thought the title I gave would call their attention easier as it contains keywords I would look up myself when searching in internet for relevant info.

Thanks for your advice.


THE SAME COMPANY ? Please give the name of that company NOW as your complaint otherwise cannot be taken serïously
