Considering that you spend about a third of your life sleeping, it is worth the investment to be truly happy with your mattress. There is a good reason why there are so many types of mattresses – what is comfortable for each person is really a personal preference. Don’t be afraid to take the time to find a mattress you love. Here are some tips before you start the hunt for your new mattress:
- Remember that a firm mattress is not automatically better for your back, and that support and how the mattress feels are two different things. The goal of all mattresses is to provide support for your body. Just as pillowtop mattresses are not the most comfortable mattresses for everyone, firm mattresses do not necessarily provide better support.
- Start by testing a pillowtop, plush and firm mattress (all from the same brand, quality and price). This will give you an idea of which type feels most comfortable to you.
- Once you have decided which type you prefer, you can try out more mattresses like that one. Do not let yourself be hurried.
