How to Find the Right Online Mattress

Other than cars, Consumer Reports receives more inquiries about mattresses than any other product. If you think about it,

  1. A) everyone needs a mattress no matter how rich or poor, and
  2. B) we spend more time in bed than in our car or at work or school or any other activity, so of course, we will complain if our mattress isn’t giving us the best night’s rest.

IMG_1545_320X320To avoid buyer’s remorse, here are some tips on how to find the right mattress. First, go straight to a reputable online mattress in bBrisbaneretailer. When you arrive, there will be dozens of tempting beds that all scream “try me!” Try them! All of them. Lie down for more than five seconds. Actually, take as much time as you need.  You need to take the time to understand and feel how the mattress you are testing is supporting you (or how it’s not). It might seem a bit awkward at first, you might have trouble letting yourself get comfortable in a bright showroom with people around you, but it is so essential to ignore your surroundings for a few minutes and just feel the mattress you are on (after all, you will be spending the next 10 years on it).

When you think you found a Online mattress that feels right, settle into your favorite sleeping position (side, stomach or back), take a deep breath and relax.

This next part is essential: close both of your eyes (bring an eye mask if that makes the experience more authentic). For at least two minutes, forget that you are at a Online mattress sale in Brisbane store and pretend you’re about to go to sleep for the night. If you have a regular sleeping partner like a spouse or significant other, make sure they are right there next to you (they do share half the bed with you).

Here are some things to consider when testing mattresses at the store:


1. Can you get into a comfortable position fairly quickly? If you find yourself tossing and turning too much to get comfortable, move on – it’s probably not the right mattress for you.

2. Spend a few minutes on your back, on each of your sides and on your stomach. Think of it as the equivalent of a three-way mirror in a dressing room: explore every angle, test every possible position.

3. Roll from the center of the mattress to the outer edges and see if the amount of support changes. If you feel like you’re sagging in the center of the mattress or that the springs are stiffer at the edges, this mattress probably won’t be very comfortable tonight or 2 years from now.

4.W hile rolling over, listen for squeaks and other noises that might disturb your sleep. If they’re creaking now, they will probably creek in the wee hours of the night.

Finally, here is an easy-to-remember acronym to help you find the right mattress: S.L.E.E.P.
