What To Look For When Buying A New Mattress

Let’s be honest: considering which mattress to buy can keep you up at night. From your comfort and support to sticking to your budget, there are plenty of things to think about before buying a mattress.
Getting a good night’s rest is one of the first steps of having a better tomorrow, so we’ve put together some key features to keep in mind when you’re shopping for a new place to dream.
SUPPORT YOUR SLEEP STYLE
A great mattress should support you no matter your sleep position. Bonus points, too, to the mattress if it also comfortably accommodates whomever shares your bed – human or pet.
On that note, consider a mattress that offers zero motion transfer so in the case that you’re sharing, your slumber won’t be disturbed if there’s movement on the other side.
SPRING OR FOAM?
You should be waking up every day feeling refreshed, so opt for a mattress that will relieve your pressure points for a restful night’s sleep.
Ensuring a great night’s rest means you’re going to stay cool and comfortable throughout the entire night. Mattress technology has evolved to ensure this – including things like open air cell foam – so sleepers don’t wake up drenched in sweat.
SLEEP ON IT. LITERALLY.
Wiggling around on a bed in a store doesn’t cut it these days. These days, mattress brands know better than to give you just a few moments on a bed to determine if you’re a match made in your dreams. With hassle-free trials periods, you’re able to actually sleep on it to see if it’s the right mattress for you.
Dreaming That Your Teeth Fall Out
In an ideal world, everyone would be dreaming about fantastical scenes and interactions that allow us to wake up with a smile on our faces. That, however, isn’t the reality for many dreamers.
How to Host the Perfect Adult Slumber Party
Tired of crazy girls’ nights out with the added cost of surcharged Übers, overpriced cocktails… not to mention hangovers and blistered heels? I think we can all agree that a quality girl’s night in is long overdue.
How To Tell If Your Mattress Is Causing You Back Pain
While there are many things that can throw your back out of whack (lifting too-heavy items, bending the wrong way, etc.), assessing your mattress as a potential culprit to your back pain is step one.
