Mattress Buying 101
THE BASICS: FEEL, PRICE, AND DURABILITY
Everyone has an opinion about what makes a bed comfortable. Feel is the combination of comfort and support that feels right to you. Only you know how you sleep and what you imagine when you think of the perfect bed.
Buying a mattress is an investment in your well-being, but everyone has a budget. Know how much you can spend so that you can find a mattress in your price range that feels good, provides adequate support, and is made with quality materials.
A good mattress will provide restful sleep for 10 years or more. Investing in quality materials and good construction is the best way to ensure that your mattress has a long, healthy life. We offer a 10-year guarantee on all the products we manufacture.
WHAT A MATTRESS SHOULD DO FOR YOU
It should conform to the unique shape of your body, allowing you to comfortably settle into the softer materials, but keeping your spine in a straight line while you sleep.
It should distribute your body weight evenly to provide pressure relief in areas that can ache or be sore at the end of the day—specifically your hips and shoulders.
Respond to Motion
It should allow you to move around freely and with minimal effort. Especially important, if you sleep with a partner, you should be able to move freely without disturbing them.
It should help you maintain a neutral body temperature throughout the night by regulating airflow and wicking moisture.
Pocketed coils are small, strong steel coils that are individually wrapped and operate independently from one another. Higher-quality beds have a higher coil count, distributing your weight more evenly and relieving your pressure points more effectively.
Latex is a dense and springy natural foam made from the sap of the rubber tree. Latex responds to the contours of your body but also offers resistance to distribute your weight evenly and relieve pressure.
Memory foam is a synthetic foam that molds to the shape of your body, promoting spinal alignment and relieving pressure points while you sleep. Memory foam has a unique, “spongy” feel.
Your body sinks too far into the mattress, causing your spine to bow downwards and pressure to be applied on your hips.
