Top Tips To Consider When Buying A Mattress

Tips When Buying A Mattress

Buying a new mattress or replacing an old one can often be a daunting task because there are so many options to choose from. With so many quality mattresses out there, how do you know which one is right for you? 

Mattresses are an important long-term investment and are crucial to getting a good night’s sleep. You want to start your morning as well as possible with a comfortable mattress that will guarantee you good sleep- the quality of your rest can set the tone for your entire day! 

To make the task easier for you, we’ve put together a guide to help you navigate through the various categories and questions that come up when choosing the right mattress. Let’s take a look at some important things to consider when deciding on which mattress to invest in, for example:

  • What is the right level of firmness for you?
  • What kind of sleeper are you? (Side, back, stomach or combo?)
  • Are you a hot sleeper or a cool sleeper?

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg! There are plenty of other elements to consider, like material! There are a variety of options when looking at mattress materials: spring and foam are the most common ones. While springs are widely available and affordable, foam and gel options often come with comfortable features and more back support.

After considering what kind of material you’d like your mattress made of, you should consider what kind of sleeper you are. It is very important to choose a mattress that will best suit the type of position you enjoy sleeping in. 

You’ll likely discover that you’re either a back sleeper, stomach sleeper, side sleeper, or a combination of the three.


What kind of sleeper are you?

Back Sleepers

If you are a back sleeper you’ll definitely want to lean towards a mattress that is in between soft and firm. Medium feel mattresses will help support your back and enable your spine to stay aligned in a healthy position. Most types of mattresses tend to be comfortable for back sleepers but it’s definitely a good idea to do a test by trying it out in store for at least 10 minutes. Take a few minutes, kick back and lie down to make sure you’re happy with your mattress! 


Side Sleepers

For side sleepers, a mattress that will support your body weight while still conforming to your form is ideal for desirable comfort. A medium-soft to medium-firm mattress is ideal for side sleepers.


Stomach Sleepers

Mattresses for stomach sleepers should be sturdy enough to keep their spines in proper alignment while still being soft enough to cushion the chest, belly, hips, and knees. Ideal choice would be either a medium-firm or a firm mattress. 


Combination Sleepers

Combination sleepers need a mattress that can handle all of your sleeping postures. The ideal mattress should offer a balance of malleability and support. The Ideal choice would be a medium-firm or a firm mattress.


What Kind Of Fabric Should I be Looking for?

Cotton, Aloe Vera fabric and Bamboo fabric are versatile fabric materials that support both hot and cool sleepers. These are ideal choices when shopping for a mattress.
