Mattress recommendation please

After waking with a sore back again for nigh DH and I, we are convinced our mattress needs to be replaced.
I thought there was a recent thread on mattress recommendations though can't find it via a search. So, any mattress recommendations please? I'm looking online at the sleeping duck. Anyone have one? Is it hot? Is it thick enough?
Our current mattress is deep-walled with a topper, which we like. Firm would be the go I think.
Any help appreciated!

We have the Eva mattress and so happy with it! No longer waking up sore at all!
Its not hot in summer at all, although I did notice I'm warmer in winter which is great. I'm not sure how they managed that. DH runs much warmer than me and he doesn't have any problems either.

I love our King Koil mattress, it's so comfy. Ours is a pocket spring mattress which makes a huge difference to our old mattress which was innerspring. The pocket springs means that the whole bed doesn't move when somebody gets in or out of the bed.

Oh pocket spring. I'm a restless sleeper, so DH might appreciate that.

Another King Koil fan! I love it. Bought at 45% off or so one sale time at Harvey Norman.
You need to try a bed IMO, especially if you're having back issues.
I actually found a slightly softer bed is better for my back and hips because my hips sink down in a bit which keeps my spine straighter.

We bought an Aldi mattress on the weekend. So far so good 😁

Thanks for the replies! Still looking. Going to try a king koil in store this week then decide from there.

Finally got around to ordering a mattress. Remembered every morning, then got overwhelmed by choice.
Ordered the Eva bed in box. Unbelievable price, and good trial period.
Thank you for all the help!

We have an adjustable memory foam mattress. Extremely comfortable, esp for DH who had neck surgery last year - this mattress has meant that he has been able to sleep well pain free) for the first time in ages. It really does relieve back/neck pain.
However, we found the mattress to be quite hot. We ended up buying a wool/cotton mattress cover that allows the mattress to breathe and this has helped a lot. DH is perfectly comfortable now and not hot at all.
I'm still hot but our purchase of the mattress coincided with me starting to get night sweats, so I think there are other factors at play. I'm wondering what it is going to be like in summer
A couple of years ago this bed would have been perfect for me - I was always cold. Now I'm always hot. The fact that it hasn't been a cold winter (for me) doesn't help. DH thinks the mattress was worth the investment. I'm reserving judgment for the moment.

We bought ours from Regal sleep solutions. They had 40% off around Boxing day sales. Not the top of the range, second best I think. It came down to around $1800.
I have terrible back (had surgery), leg and hip issues (bursitis), not to mention EDS, half of the time I have to crack joints back into place when I wake up. 🤣
But last 6 months I had the best sleep I ever had in my life.
I had these crampy, painful flare up in my back/hip every few months, I had none so far.
And it's super warm, I was out of bed for almost 2h, it was still warm when I made it.
My and DH are a bit chunky hehe so foam mattress wouldn't be an option.
I know you ordered your mattress, but just in case it doesn't work out I can highly recommend these mattresses, and customers service is amazing.

King Koil all the way. I slept on one at a hotel once and took a picture of the label.
I’ve had it for about 4 years and I reckon I still think “I love my bed” when I climb in at the 3 times a week.
