    For those with sleep number beds, what is your sleep number setting?

    I like a firm mattress. Could never get that type of feel from an air mattress without causing pressure points.

    Have you been pressure mapped at a local Sleep Number store? You might be surprised how firm a 50 sleep number is without pressure points.

    My sleep number is 50. My body type is tall and thin, no extra on my bones.

    I owned one. I tried all sorts of options including changing the top layers. I am now sleeping on a coil spring mattress with medium latex topper and I still don't find it firm enough. Seems like no matter what, if it's firm enough for my back it's too hard for my shoulders.

    Is it possible to be too low?

    Yes. Too low and you'll "hammock" and create extra pressure on the lowest point.

    Usually shoulders are not going to get pressure wounds. It is you lower back that is problematic and prone to the most pressure.

    I have a medical sheep skin from shoulders to heels on top of my sleep number bed. Just some extra insurance.

    I have the Classic Sleep Number bed, original model C2 which has a remote but no number memory. You have to inflate/deflate to a good feel. So I can't really say what my number is but I do like it firmer, however, I am cautious so as not to make it too firm. I've had it for almost nine years now and no issues. I'm a curvy woman so not super bony, maybe that has made a difference for me. Also a side sleeper. I only opted for this model because the others all had that extended base on them and I couldn't transfer that far a distance.
