It doesnt really matter how much reading or research youve done in your hunt for a good mattress. If you dont get to try it out, itll be pointless because even the best and biggestmattresses might not be suitable for everyone. If in doubt, just get a king size mattress over any other sizes (provided theres enough space in your room and your wallet is deep enough). Here are the top choices of king size mattresses that you should go for. Its similar to buying a car without test driving it first. Wouldnt it be an absolute waste of time and money to read about and purchase it when theres a chance that youd be disappointed at how it feels like using it? With that said, before you jump onto a mattress to try it out, make sure you don on some comfortable clothes and remove your shoes first. It helps a lot to feel at home when youre trying out a mattress.
Trying it out
Ideally, youll want to rest on the bed for at least 5 whole minutes, while seated or even lying down on it. You dont have to feel rushed at all. Instead, tell the sales assistant that youll get back to them later once youve tried out all the mattresses that you want. Also, you might want to get a brochure that lists down all the mattress specifications for you because even the salesperson might occasionally miss out on something or they might get their facts wrong. Check the type of mattress that youll be trying out first. If youre used to say a spring mattress, a memory foam mattress might feel a little firm at first. Or if youre used to sleeping on a king size mattress, a double bed will seem tiny. For instance,Sleep Innovations has a mattressthat feels a lot like this. Similarly, latex mattresses would feel a lot firmer if youve come from say a waterbed.
Size matters. Regardless of what your friends or family might have tried to convince you otherwise, the size of your mattress can make or break your sleep (fine, perhaps were exaggerating a little bit). By basically allowing yourself more space to move or roll about in your sleep, your mind can be restful in knowing that youre not going to fall over the side of your bed in your sleep. Ever shared a single bed with someone else and find yourself exhausted the next day despite having a full 8-hour sleep? Thats because your subconscious is not in a fully rested state thanks to your mind warning you that you might fall off the bedside anytime at night due to insufficient space.
The best support does not depend entirely on the type as well as brand of mattress that youre thinking of purchasing. It all boils down to your body weight and size. A mattress thats perfect for you will allow your body to be relaxed, without you feeling any tension or pressure at all on every part of your body. It should almost feel as if youre floating in midair. The texture of the mattress is similarly as important here. If you dont like how it rubs against your skin as you toss and turn on it, you might want to opt for something else.
Comfort is also a subjective matter, so dont be fooled by the marketing speech on how popular a particular mattress is and how many awards its won for its technology. All those do not matter in the slightest bit if you dont feel comfortable sleeping on it. For example, some people like to feel as if theyre wrapped up in the softness of the bed while some others prefer a firmer bed that feels more solid. Theres really no right choice here in choosing a mattress. Just choose that works and feels best for you.
Even if you really do have a thing for a particular brand or mattress model, youll be happy to know that most mattress manufacturers have multiple levels of firmness available for each mattress of theirs. Theres also no global standard that rate a mattresss firmness to another so make sure you actually try it out on your own.
