The right bed with the right retailer
- If you've had a positive mattress shopping experience previously, start there.
- Make sure the retailer offers the quality and the selection you desire.
Be smart in store
- Do not be embarrassed to lie on the bed. This is a valuable investment so take your time.
- Start with testing the feel of a good quality mattress – We suggest starting from the Posturepedic Palatial Crest Collection
- This will help you determine your comfort preference first.
- Try an ultra plush, plush, then a medium, then finally firm innerspring. See below for more information about comfort levels.
- Don't worry about what's in the mattress. Yet.
Know the four basic comfort levels when you test
Comfort ranges from very soft to ultra firm - so establish your comfort preference first. Remember: Comfort is different for everyone. Try several different comforts when you’re in the store. A good mattress should provide you with the right support at every comfort level.
- Ultra Plush – a very soft-feeling surface.
- Plush – firmer than the ultra plush, but not as firm as cushion firm.
- Cushion Firm / Medium – firmer than a plush, but softer than firm.
- Firm – the hardest of the comfort levels.
