So it’s time to buy a new mattress, but with so many mattresses out there, you’re not even sure where to start. Well, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve tried out some of the biggest names and the best mattresses on the market to help you find the right one for you.
And the good news is, buying a mattress is easier than it’s ever been. No need to deal with pushy salespeople, you can do everything online—from research to purchase—and have a new mattress in days with just a few clicks.
Here we’ll walk you through everything you need to know about buying a mattress. Taking these things into consideration as you look for a potential mattress for your home will help you make a great decision that will have you sleeping like a baby for years to come.
As you shop, pretty much all the mattresses you see will fall into three or four main categories—foam, innerspring, hybrid, and latex. Each has unique characteristics that will affect how they feel when you lie and sleep on them. Here’s what you should know.
As you start your search for a new mattress, we recommend you take a little time to think about your sleep preferences. Do you find yourself sleeping on your stomach, back, or side most often? Do you sleep in all those positions? Do you like the feeling of sinking in and being hugged by your bed, or do you prefer the sturdier support and a sensation of floating on top of the bed?
Knowing what you like will help you decide what kind of mattress to go with, as well as how firm you want it to be, so you get one that suits you perfectly.
If you experience any kind of back, joint, or muscle pain, a new mattress can do a lot to alleviate it. And finding the right level of firmness can also work wonders. A softer (less firm) bed will help alleviate pressure points by contouring to your body more, giving you a feeling like you’re sinking in and being swaddled, especially with foam mattresses.
A firmer bed can be even more supportive, especially for heavier-weight sleepers. You won’t get as much body-contouring, but if you tend to shift positions during the night, a firmer bed will make it easier to do that without disturbing your sleep.
It’s also important to note that a feeling of firmness will change depending on what kind of bet you have. For example, even a firm foam mattress will feel softer and more contouring that a firm innerspring bed. Also, your weight will play a role. A softer mattress may feel firm enough for a light-weight sleeper, and that same mattress for a heavier-weight sleeper may feel way too soft.
As far as we know there are no benefits to sleeping standing up, or sleeping on your head. So as far as we’re concerned there are three positions that most people sleep in each night. And the category of sleep type you fall under should be considered when looking for a mattress. When it comes to a pain-free night’s sleep, it’s really all about spinal alignment.
When we look at mattresses we look specifically at certain categories to help you get a good idea of what the mattress is like and whether you will get what you need from it. Within each category, we rank how well the mattress performs in that category.
One of the best things about the mattress industry moving online is that you can complete the entire process from the comfort of your own home. What makes the experience a pleasant one or a not-so-pleasant one is the quality of customer service you get (or don’t) from the mattress company you decide to go with.
We let you know which brands are doing customer service right—from live chat or phone reps, to warranties and return policies, to delivery services. Some of these things can make or break the mattress buying experience. Some brands will drop a dented box in your driveway, while others will bring it right into your bedroom (with COVID safety in mind), install it and take your old mattress away, all with a smile and all for free!
