Comfort Test First
Take the time to comfort test your next mattress and discover your comfort zone. That means going into a mattress store and lying down on mattresses. A third of our day on average is spent in bed, you’ll be glad you spent a little extra time upfront. One size does not fit all, each person has a unique set of needs. A good mattress will provide you with the right support at every level.
WEAR COMFORTABLE CLOTHES, USE THE TEST PILLOW FOR YOUR BEST POSITION, AND RELAX
Start by trying the firmest mattresses, then work your way through to the softest. When testing a mattress, get as comfortable as possible try to recreate the position you sleep in. Make sure to use a pillow when testing a mattress to match the way you actually sleep. If you think your current mattress is causing discomfort see if any of those sensations are triggered?
TAKE AS MUCH TIME AS YOU NEED TO GET COMFORTABLE
Your mattress test usually takes at least 5 minutes but use 15 if you need to. Make sure to try each comfort level to get a good idea of your comfort preference. Next, narrow your search by looking for mattresses around your preferred comfort zone. Have fun and enjoy the process!
