Common Mattress Types

If you want to know how to choose a mattress, a good place to start is by familiarizing yourself with the common types of mattresses you’ll encounter while you shop. Foam mattresses are popular picks among people who suffer from back or joint pain when they sleep. These mattresses are typically made with polyurethane, latex or both. A foam mattress will get softer and mold around your body when you lie down, but it will spring back to its original shape when you get up.

Innerspring mattresses account for more than 60 percent of the mattresses that are sold in today’s market. An innerspring mattress has steel coils that provide support. These mattresses are available with various layers of cushion, pillow tops, and infused gel. You can also find hybrid innerspring mattresses for sale.

Adjustable air mattresses enable you to inflate your mattress to whatever level of firmness you think is the most comfortable. If you sleep with a partner, an adjustable air mattress will often allow you and your partner to inflate your respective sides of the bed to your individual levels of desired firmness.

Tips for Choosing a Mattress

Now that you’re familiar with some common types of mattresses, it’s time for you to learn some actionable tips that can help you choose the mattress that’s best for you. No matter how big or small your budget is, the following suggestions will help ensure you’ll be happy with your new mattress for years to come.

Test the Mattress

If you’re shopping at a brick-and-mortar retail location, you should test the mattress you’re thinking about getting. Lie down on the mattress, testing how it feels when you’re on each of your sides, back and stomach. Take your time and remain in each position for several minutes to see how comfy the mattress really is.

If you’re shopping online, read reviews to see how people describe the mattress you’re interested in. Because you won’t have the chance to test the mattress personally, it’s vital that you investigate the retailer’s return policy before you make a purchase.

Check the “Comfort Guarantee”

A comfort guarantee is basically the same thing as a store’s return policy. In general, a comfort guarantee will last anywhere from a few weeks up to 120 days. During this period, you can return or exchange a mattress for a refund or a credit toward a different mattress. Some retailers may charge a fee to pick up a mattress that’s being returned or they might charge a restocking fee. If the mattress suffered damage while in your care, you will be responsible for paying for it.
