How to find a good mattress?

A mattress is an essential item for peaceful nights and refreshing mornings. You should be able differentiate between a good and bad mattress, so that you can make the right choice. Mattresses can be compared on a number of criteria. Here the most important factors are summed up to make this exhaustive task easier for you.


Types of mattresses

If your back is the most problematic part of your body, then you should look for an orthopedic or medically designed mattress. You can also discuss with an Orthopedician to get the right mattress that gives optimum support to your sensitive back. If you have no medical issues to care for, then get the normal mattress suiting your comfort.



A comfortable mattress is the one which adjusts to your back posture and gives it a complete support while sleeping. The mattress should have soft lining to be safe for any kind of skin. It must be well-quilted to give you the rest you need.


Coils and springs

Definitely you will not be able to open the mattress and check these features, but your touch can tell you a lot. By touching with hand and pressing a little you can check the softness and quality of coil used in making the mattress. By sitting on different parts of the mattress you can get an idea about the evenness of springs. For more details about this aspect you can check the printed specifications of the mattress or this video.



Carrying and changing the mattress can be very tiresome if you have a heavy mattress. You may wish to vacuum and turnover the mattress frequently. Getting a heavy mattress will be a big problem so my advice is to get a mattress that you can manage single handedly.

Trust the brands

Rely on the manufacturers for whom mattresses means business – here is a list. If a specific brand is tried and tested and a lot of people you know have been using that product, then you must trust their experience.

Take time to research

Mattress is an investment that plays a significant role in your comfort and relaxation. So, before spending your money, research the market thoroughly to know where you should invest it to reap the maximum benefits. Consider all your options and you must go to the extent of lying down on the mattress to know it completely. If you have shortlisted a few, read their reviews on online shopping portals.


A mattress is the best partner to live a comfortable life. Select this partner after a good deal of deliberation. Cheerio!
