2. Shop together.
If the mattress is for two make sure to shop together, so both are happy with the purchase.
Set aside enough time to this properly. Don’t shop if in a hurry or when feeling tired as all mattresses will feel comfortable.
4. Test Drive
Make sure to wear comfortable clothes. Try each one in the position you would sleep in and don’t be afraid to re try. This is an important purchase ,take your time and don’t feel rushed by the salesman.
It’s best to shop for value and not for the lowest price. The dearest mattress is not always the best or most suitable but there are many reasons why it costs more. It’s a personal choice.
Watch out for gimmicks when buying your mattress and watch out for how loosely the word orthopaedic and medically approved are used. If this is on a label ask more and find out which organizations have approved these?
Comfort is subjective to the individual. Don’t be led by ratings saying soft medium and firm. There's no industry rating standard. So remember try, try and try again.
Always ask about the warranty and what’s covered.
8. Bad Back
A firm mattress is not always best for a bad back it must be supportive. Again remember there isn’t a one mattress that’s fits all. Every back issue is different and please don’t fall into the trap of a salesman telling you an orthopaedic mattress is best.
Research your store before shopping. Specialist shops tend to have the best and most up to date selection and staff tend to be more knowledgeable and well trained. They are
selling one product as opposed to many in a general furniture store.
