Buying a Mattress

What type of mattress do you need?

A. More Support

Solution: Innerspring Mattress

Innerspring Mattresses consist of open steel coils or springs topped with layered upholstery for comfort. Typically with a higher coil count you get more support; however, sometimes the overall support value depends on the placement of coils and the layers of padding that accompany them.

B. Movement Minimizing

Solution: Wrapped (or Pocketed) Coil Mattress

Wrapped (or Pocketed) Coil Mattresses offer a unique system: individual springs wrapped in a cloth, so that each coil independently adjusts to your body. The system minimizes any other movements on the bed—limiting sleep cycle interruption. This is also known as motion separation.

C. Pressure Relieving

Solution: Memory Foam Mattress

Memory Foam Mattresses use advanced materials designed to reduce pressure points and support your body in proper alignment. Memory foam can be temperature sensitive, responding to your body heat in different ways to minimize discomfort while you sleep. Memory foam also softens in spots where parts of your body press firmly into the mattress; reducing pressure on shoulders, hips and other joints.

D. All of the Above

Solution: Hybrid Mattresses

Hybrid Mattresses feature a combination of the traditional spring system and layers of memory foam to provide a solid design with the advantages of pressure relieving materials. These beds provide comfort and support of both technologies, making them the ideal option for someone buying a mattress who would not enjoy an all foam mattress or an all coil mattress.

Choose Your Level of Firmness

Firmness levels describe how much resistance the mattress applies to the body weight and the resulting "give" of the mattress surface. Firmness levels can differ by manufacturer and brand.

  • Extra Firm—Sturdy surface with minimal give
  • Firm—Solid build with padding to reduce impact
  • Medium—An equal balance between padding and stability
  • Plush—Soft top with significant give
  • Ultra Plush—Airy feel with extra cushion
  • Pillow Top—An extra layer of comfort padding added to the surface of a mattress. This is generally designed to provide a softer feel without diminishing support factors. These mattresses are usually thicker than others, so they might require deep-pocket sheets.

How to Extend the Life of Your Mattress

  1. Buy matching box spring to ensure lasting durability and support over time
  2. Rotate mattress every 3 months for best results
  3. Add a bed frame with a solid center support to reduce sagging
  4. Use an upholstery brush to vacuum your mattress once a year
  5. Find a complementary mattress protector
  6. After unwrapping your mattress, allow it to breathe

Mattress Toppers, Pads & Protectors

Mattress Toppers deliver an extra layer of customized support to extend the life of your mattress. Whether memory foam or filled with down, feather or down alternative materials; mattress toppers are all about adding an additional layer of comfort to your mattress.

Mattress Pads provide a thin layer of softness and support. Although mattress pads and mattress toppers are sometimes used interchangeably, a mattress pad’s main purpose is to protect your mattress. They typically come attached to a fitted skirt to prevent shifting.

Mattress Protectors shield your mattress from dirt, moisture, allergens, nightly wear and sometimes even bed bugs. Use them in conjunction with pillow covers for maximum protection.

What’s in a mattress?

Comfort Layers—Memory foam, gel foam, polyurethane foam, latex, air or some combination that provide cushion and comfort.

Support Layers—Dense foam, latex or a metal coil system that resists your body weight and minimizes pressure points.

Foam—A cellular material made from polyurethane or latex. It can be soft, firm or completely rigid.

Memory Foam—A polyurethane foam material that has both viscous and elastic properties, making it an ideal material for someone who needs both support and comfort in a mattress.

Polyurethane Foam—The most common foam used in bedding and bedding accessories. It is a synthetic, flexible foam produced by a chemical reaction usually in a continuous process.
