If you are now in the market to purchase a new mattress, it is important to test it in-store before purchasing. When you’re mattress testing, you want to know exactly how it feels when you lay down to sleep at night and make sure its comfort level is ideal to your liking. What might be comfortable for one person might not be comfortable for you either. The only way for you to find out which mattress is ideal is to try it out yourself.

We know what you may be thinking, “but I do not want to lie on a bed in front of everyone in the store.” Do not worry, our crew sees it all the time, and it is an essential step in the shopping process. Read on for a few things to consider so you can understand the best ways to test out a mattress in-store.

Do Your Homework Before Entering the Mattress Store

Mattress Peddlers employees will do their best to help you in finding the ideal mattress, but it is key for you to know all your options before you come into our store. For the best results, you can take a look at our website’s mattress buying guide and checklist on other websites ahead of time. Having a general idea of what you’d want and need before going shopping will help lead you and your sleeping consultant in the right direction and save you more money and time. If you need help figuring out what you’d prioritize in a mattress, give us a call in advance, and we will be able to help you!

Take it Out for a Test Drive (or Sleep)

Once your sleep professionals lead you to few potential options, we recommend lying down in your favorite position that you normally sleep in. Whether this is on your stomach, back, or side – and wiggling around to various positions to make sure you are content. Do not be uncomfortable, it is a part of our customer service to let you try out as many beds as you’d like in the Mattress Peddlers store. Some questions to ask yourself as you test out each mattress include:

  • Do you like a firm or softer bed?
  • Which mattress brands do I trust the most?
  • Which bed features can I live without? Which features can I NOT live without? Take notes on this, what you like and don’t like are important.

It is also important to remember, if you sleep with a partner, you should both test out the mattress at the same time. This will help you see if you’d have enough space, and both agree on the comfort level of the mattress.
