Mattress Guide

Finding the perfect mattress can be a tedious task. Especially if you are buying a mattress online, it can be complicated. No need to worry! We have made a buying guide especially for you to help you decide which mattress to buy.

Among all the mattresses in the world, there are three most common types of mattresses: innerspring, foam, and adjustable. Note that the material is not the only factor you should consider but rather your needs.

You will need a mattress that has lesser springs. Memory foam and/or latex mattress is the one you need. Be sure to look at the density and thickness of the foam because this will determine how deep you’ll sink.

Innerspring mattress usually have a fiberfill or foam outer layer and is covered in quilted ticking. But if you’re really looking for a luxury mattress, don’t be fooled by a thick-looking pillowtop because it can compress over time. It is better to choose a firmer, well-quilted mattress and then cover it with a replaceable mattress topper.

You will need a surface that will support your body weight and conform to your shape. Innersprings may provide more pressure relief than some latex or foam mattresses but you can also choose a soft foam mattress.

A firm foam, dense innerspring, or airfield mattress is for you. It will provide you the comfort you need.

You will need a mattress that supports your back. That’s why you should buy something in the middle of an innerspring and foam/latex mattress.

Memory foam and/or latex is the one. It reshapes according to your body for support and it’s also great to help ease back pain.

You should consider choosing an innerspring mattress with pocketed coils, memory foam, latex, or a dual-chamber air-filled mattress. Also, medium-firm picks will all have good "motion isolation."
