Choosing the right mattress can seem overwhelming. Size, brand, coils, pillow top, memory foam, latex, price… so many variables! But what really matters in the end is: Can you sleep comfortably on a mattress you can only test briefly in a store? Follow these simple steps to S.L.E.E.P. on the right mattress for you!
Prior to going to the store, do your research. Check online reviews, know your budget, and go to a reputable mattress store with excellent customer service (like The Mattress Capital). Knowledgeable staff should be able to answer questions, steer you in the right direction, and even show you “cutaways” that look inside the mattress. Then, S.L.E.E.P. on it!
Select the mattress you want to try out. (Here’s where your research comes in.)
Lie down in a position you normally like to fall asleep. (Stay there for at least ten minutes to give your body time to relax.)
Evaluate the level of comfort and support. (Pro Tip: Too firm of a mattress will push on main pressure points in your body causing discomfort, while too soft of a mattress will not offer enough support and you’ll feel saggy.)
Educate yourself about your selection. (Ask to see what’s inside and get the opinion of your sales associate or read reviews on the mattress while you lie there.)
Partners should test beds together. (Different people need different mattresses. Make sure both you and your partner find the mattress that is mutually suitable.)
