FWIW found the select comfort wholely unsuitable for sleeping with dogs.

1. the number does no directly relate to pressure but to air volume so depending where and how many dogs are on the bed changes the firmness of the mattress regardless of the sleep number.
Also why men and women ussually have different sleep numbers. Say a 35 with a 100# women is a lot softer than a 35 with a 200# guy on it.
Hound gets on or off the bed the firmness of the matress changes. found it impossible to get a nights rest with the darn thing.


Hound love it though, especial when no human is on it the air pressure is low so they just sink right in. The select comfort has been relagated to guest bed room where it is a big hit.

Standard sheet fit fine, it has ridged foam edges come plain or pillow top I have the plain version

"when you have a bed for two, and only one of you is sleeping on it, the air chambers equal out and you don't get what you want."
Most of the large sizes come with two idividual mattresses one for each side. As long as you stay on your side no problem. Move to the middle when only 1 person and yes the firmness will be less.

For those that are anal rententive about the appearance of the bed it also is not a good choice. Again because it is based on volume not pressure when no one is in the bed it is very soft. Impossible to make with clean sharp lines unless you change the "sleep Number" after you get up. and then again when you go to bed. Depending on the amout of air needed it can take as long as 1/2 hour to adjust.

It may sound like bashing but in reality it is a very comfortable bed provide that the circumstances are right. Unfortunately that means a consistent weight is applied to either half (or more precisely each individual mattress)
