For a detailed understanding of our testing process across six performance categories, we consider factors such as sleeping position and body weight. These elements can significantly impact how a mattress feels and performs.

How to Choose a Mattress

The best mattress for you is as unique as you are. We believe that there is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to sleep. With our extensive testing, we have categorized mattresses based on their performance to cater to all types of sleepers. Our goal is to make your mattress search easier and more effective.

If you're just starting your mattress journey, here are four quick questions to guide you:

What bed works with my body?

Consider your body weight and sleeping position to determine your primary needs from a bed. Finding the right balance of pressure relief, support, and firmness will ensure a comfortable and restorative sleep experience.

What kind of bed feels right to me?

Different mattresses are made from various materials, offering different sensations. From bouncy latex to hugging memory foam, it's important to choose a bed that aligns with your preference for comfort and feel.

What are my unique needs?

Take into account any specific requirements you may have, such as sleeping hot at night, sharing the bed with a partner, or accommodating an old sports injury. These factors can guide your mattress search and help you find the perfect fit for your individual needs.

How much should I spend on a new bed?

While budget is a consideration, it's essential to view your mattress as an investment in your sleep quality. A more expensive mattress may offer better longevity and improved sleep, while a cheaper option may require replacement sooner.

If you're unsure about answering any of these questions, we have a video and a comprehensive guide available to assist you in making the best mattress choice.
