Mattress Buying Guide
Remember that just because a mattress is soft doesn't mean it won't be supportive. When trying out different mattresses, always start by lying on the firmest mattress first, working your way to softest. Repeat the process once or twice to discover what levels feel most comfortable for you.Shop Our Mattresses »
Things to remember when you are buying a mattress.
As you lie on the mattress, think about how your shoulders, hips and lower back feel. Give your body a chance to respond to the mattress at these key touch points. Unfold your arms and lie on the bed as relaxed as you can. Don't be afraid to ask the salesperson for a few minutes to yourself.
Once you've narrowed down your choices, lie down on the mattress you are considering for at least 10 minutes. This will give you a truer feeling of the comfort of the mattress over time.
Shop for a mattress and box spring (also known as a foundation) as a set. Mattresses and box springs are engineered to work together, providing optimal amounts of support and comfort for the life of the sleep set.
Always buy the largest size mattress your room can accommodate. Couples should always choose either a queen or king size mattress and shop for a mattress together to ensure ample sleeping area for each of you.
Measure your headboard and the height of your current mattress and bring this information to the store. If you decide to purchase a thicker mattress than you currently have, consider getting a low profile box spring so your headboard will be visible.
