How to choose a mattress
With all these great deals — which run throughout the year, by the way, so check back to us regularly — you might find it hard to pin down the perfect mattress for you. There are a few things to consider when you’re choosing your mattress, which includes your preferred material, body type and sleeping position. However, there are plenty of factors that only you might consider, and sometimes the reason for disqualifying a mattress is that it simply doesn’t feel right. Remember, when you’re choosing a new mattress, your opinion is the most important one. So, let’s talk about how to choose your ideal mattress.
Mattress material is likely the most polarizing factor out there in both mattresses and pillows. If your mattress is stuffed with supportive memory foam, it’s going to feel much, much different than an innerspring or latex model. If you absolutely love your current mattress but it’s simply time to get a new one, your best bet is to start searching for the same mattress material that was in your previous mattress.
- Memory foam is good for side sleepers. That’s because memory foam is cushioned and soft, but it’s not so soft that you’ll feel your lower back and neck are floating in mid-air, putting undue strain on your muscles and bones.
- Latex mattresses are springy and sustainable. Stomach sleepers shouldn’t choose too soft a mattress, lest they wake up in the middle of the night suffocating as they breathe, face down, directly into their mattress. Latex is good, though, for back and stomach sleepers because they need something that keeps their backs and necks as stable and motionless as possible.
- Back and stomach sleepers, you can also feel confident purchasing a coil or innerspring mattress. It’s supportive and won’t let you sink into it. Though innerspring mattresses have fallen out of fashion thanks to the rise in memory foam and other materials, you can still find plenty of high-end innerspring models.
- No real preference for a sleeping position? If you notice you sleep on your side, stomach or back with no real regularity, a hybrid mattress can help. Hybrid mattresses typically mix materials like innerspring and memory foam for a combination of firmness and coziness, so you know that you’ll wake up feeling well-rested, no matter which position you chose to sleep in the night before.
- Coil mattresses, also called innerspring, are highly supportive, which makes them good for back and stomach sleepers. Stomach and back sleepers need a level plane on which to sleep or else they’re risking suffocating and snoring respectively. As a rule of thumb, stomach sleepers prefer the softest pillows, but the most supportive beds.
- If you don’t have a strong preference for sleeping position, a hybrid mattress can be a good choice, too. Hybrid mattresses combine soft, cushioned memory foam with supportive coils, so if you switch between your side and stomach throughout the night, a hybrid mattress can save your spine.
Your body type
When nearly everything factors into what helps you sleep best, from how dark your room is to the sound level at night, it’s also worth noting what your body looks like. But don’t worry; manufacturers have already thought about your body type for you, and that means there are tons of mattresses on the market, from mattresses that cater to folks who need extra support to mattresses that are soft and squishy for the side sleeper who’s sore. Heavy sleepers and broad-shouldered sleepers should choose a super-supportive mattress, as sleeping on a mattress that doesn’t have enough support can actually permanently damage your back and spine. Sleepers with lighter bodies can get away with most mattresses, though they shouldn’t choose a mattress made for stomach sleepers unless they absolutely have to.
Your sleeping position
Your sleeping position is the first thing you should consider when you’re choosing a pillow. While it’s not quite as important when you’re choosing a mattress, it’s still not something you should ignore. This factors majorly into the material you plan to choose. However, think of it like the opposite of what you need in a pillow. If you’re a stomach sleeper, you need a super squishy and low-loft pillow to make sure your head isn’t strained upward toward the ceiling yet a super firm and supportive mattress. If you’re a side sleeper, you need something squishy and soft to relieve pain in your bones and joints, though side sleepers’ pillows should be very firm with a high loft. Back sleepers can typically get away with anything, as they need something that falls in the middle both with pillows and with mattresses, as long as they’re not allowing their jaw to tilt forward and encourage snoring.
