Shopping Tips

Before you go shopping, inform yourself so you can make an educated purchase. Purchasing a mattress affects your health and well-being, as well as being a large investment. The following information will help you to make the best decision for your new mattress set.

 Start by educating yourself. There are thousands of mattresses out there, from how and what they’re made from to the size and quality, so make sure you research before you head to the store. This way you’ll have an idea of what you’re looking for and know what questions to ask.

 Know the dimensions of your current set, as well as, the dimensions of the room it will be going in.

 Choose the right retailer.

 Comfort, support, and durability are the main factors you need to take into consideration when shopping for a new mattress set. Make sure the mattress set is comfortable for you; everyone has different tastes as to what is comfortable. The mattress should support your body at all points and keep your spine aligned. Pay extra attention to your hips, lower back and shoulders. The durability will be a result of the materials the bed is made up of and how well it is put together.


Get the best mattress within your budget.

 Choose the right size mattress for your room and your partner. It is hard to sleep when cramped by someone else, so choose the mattress that fits your budget and room best for you and your partner. You need freedom of motion to sleep comfortably, so make sure your mattress gives you plenty of room to move around so sleeping doesn’t become a wrestling match.

 Once you are at the store Use the S.L.E.E.P.Test


Select a mattress.

Lie down in your typical sleep position.

Evaluate the level of comfort and support.

Educate yourself about each selection.

Partners should test beds together.


 Dress comfortably and wear shoes you can take off easily. Lay on the bed in the position you sleep and other various positions to make sure you can tell the bed’s comfort level for you.

 Don’t be embarrassed to lay on it as long as you need, this is a big decision and you should make sure it is the right one. You spend a third of your life in bed so take the time to try out different beds; it’ll pay off later in your quality of sleep.

 Know the name game. Unfortunately, each retailer can call the same mattress by a different name which makes it hard for customers to compare store to store. This can be tricky because the manufacturers alter the outside of the bed while the interiors are the same, so ask to see a cut out of what the bed is made up of. Our website provides basic information for our lines so you can know what bed you’re looking at by the interior make-up.
