Is it time to buy a new mattress? If so, you want to make sure that you research and find a mattress that will suit and support your body and sleep habits for several years into the future. However, when many people search for a new mattress, their judgment may be clouded by a few mattress myths. Misinformation about mattress shopping and mattress functionality may prevent you from finding the best new bed for your health. To help make your search clearer, we’ve debunked a few common mattress myths below.
You Can’t Buy a Mattress Without Testing It First
The most significant difference customers will notice between mattress shopping in-store and online is that you cannot lie on a mattress before buying it online. In-store browsing can be helpful when purchasing a new mattress because you can test the bed before you buy it. However, most if not all online mattress retailers are now offering lengthy risk-free trial periods.
These “sleep trials” let you use your mattress for as many as 100 nights and days before deciding whether it’s right for you. If it isn’t, you can return it for a full refund. Considering that it takes about 30 days to break in a mattress, these trials can be beneficial.
The Best Mattress Should Accommodate Any Sleeper
Everyone has individual sleep needs and preferences. One perfect mattress can’t exist that pleases everyone. This is why you need to follow your instincts when buying a new mattress. While friends or family members may recommend a mattress they liked, you can look for a different option if it doesn’t work for you.
Gel Memory Foam Beds Are Best for Hot Sleepers
People who tend to sleep hot will want to find a cool mattress that helps them avoid waking up sweaty. A memory foam mattress infused with gel will be cooler than all-foam beds, but it isn’t the best choice for hot sleepers. Hot sleepers will want to buy a mattress that has an innerspring or hybrid construction. Both of these mattresses have coils, which leave more room for airflow.
More Expensive Means Better Quality
You shouldn’t always assume that a high price tag means higher quality. Retailers may mark up prices to account for other costs unrelated to the quality of the bed. You don’t need to go with the most expensive mattress to guarantee comfort and longevity.
All Mattresses Require a Box Spring
When you buy a new mattress, you may assume you need a box spring foundation to go with it. In fact, there are many different types of mattress foundations available. When shopping for your mattress, you can ask for recommendations for foundations that suit your new mattress. As always, your final decision should be made based on how comfortable it makes you feel and how well it helps you sleep.
