Mattress Shopping Guidelines

Follow these basic mattress shopping guidelines to assure you get the right mattress.


Shop for support.   Look for a mattress that provides uniform support from head to toe with no gaps between your body and mattress.  Pay attention to pressure points on areas such as the shoulders and hips.

Shop for comfort.   Lay on each mattress option for at least 5 or 10 minutes to get an good idea of its comfort. 

Shop for size and motion transfer.  Make sure your bed has enough room for you and your sleeping partner to stretch and roll over, and allow for minimal motion transfer from one persons side of the bed to the others.
