Buying a new mattress involves a lot more than choosing a brand. You also need to consider what type of support fits your sleeping style, whether or not you want to choose a special material, and how long a new mattress will last.  

Here’s a brief buyer’s guide that lists what you need to know when choosing a mattress:

  • Don’t settle for an online picture or ordering over the phone. Go to a mattress store so that you can test out the mattress for yourself. Spend time lying on the mattress in the same positions you would normally sleep in.
  • Check the stitching on the top layer of the mattress. Believe it or not, this will have an effect on your comfort. A large quilt pattern will feel a lot softer than a smaller pattern. The hand-stitched designs from the Aireloom Bedding Company are great in this area.
  • Make sure you are getting the support you need. Tempur-Pedic foam mattresses are great for supporting all the pressure points, no matter what position you sleep in, so that you toss and turn less in the night.•
  • If you want a bit more comfort, consider buying a featherbed, pillow-top, or memory foam mattress.  Even well-known brands such as Sealy and Serta are now offering these plush and luxurious add-ons to their designs.•

Most mattresses last for 7-10 years, and some top-brands can last for up to 12. Regardless, be sure to take care of your mattress by rotating it every few months and avoid putting too much pressure on the same spot too often.
