You’re searching for the perfect mattress to improve your sleep and support you as you’re dozing, but how can you make sure that you choose the right one? A mattress can be a significant investment, so it only makes sense that you want to take your time and test out plenty of options. Here are some of our best tips for testing out a mattress in the store to find the perfect one for your needs.
Research Ahead of Time
While our employees are always happy to help guide you through a variety of options in the store, it’s always best to do a little bit of mattress research ahead of time. What types of materials are you most interested in? What is your budget? Are there any specific or unique concerns that you have about your mattress? If you will be sharing the bed with someone else who is not going to be visiting the store with you? If so, what type of mattress do they prefer?
Try Things Out
Once you arrive at the mattress store, it’s time to try things out! While it’s a good idea to try out the sleep position that you use the most, you should also make sure to turn in every direction. Are different positions comfortable? When you are lying on the mattress, pay attention to where your body is relaxed and where it feels like there is the most pressure. For example, side sleepers who use firm mattresses can feel excess pressure on their hips that leads to discomfort. As a result, side sleepers often do best on contoured or softer mattresses that have some give.
Ask the Right Questions
When you are trying out a new mattress in the store, make sure that you ask yourself plenty of questions, including:
- What mattress brands do I prefer?
- Do I want a soft or a firm mattress?
- Are there any features that I have to have, like a memory foam mattress?
- Is there enough space for you or should you size up?
