How to Choose the Right Mattress for You
There are blogs about why a softer mattress is best, and about why a firmer mattress is best. Coil springs versus memory foam… the debates rage endlessly. Finding the right mattress at Mattress Warehouse, however, is a matter of discovering which choice is right for you, not just which mattress is “best,” but which mattress most closely fits your needs- for firmness, longevity, and budget.
While common wisdom may seem to dictate that the more expensive the product, the better, this is not always the case when it comes to mattresses. If you are a person who tends to “sleep hot”- you rarely use a heavy bedcover, even during the coldest weather, and keep a fan or air conditioner running nearly year-round, a pricey memory foam mattress would probably be a bad fit. Traditional memory foam tends to retain body heat. The heat allows the foam to mold comfortably to your body but may make a “hot” sleeper feel as if they’re sleeping in a sauna. For them, coils may be a better choice. Bottom line: don’t base your choice on price alone.
The firmness level you choose will depend on a couple of factors. First, your most preferred sleeping position. Side-sleepers tend to prefer softness, which creates fewer pressure points. Back and stomach sleepers may prefer a firmer bed that offers better spinal support. Body weight also comes into play when choosing. While foam may be preferable for the average person, a larger person may prefer the support offered by a coil bed.
