Test for comfort

Take your time and lie down on a variety of mattresses. Spend several minutes lying in your normal sleeping position. If you have a sleep partner, make sure you shop for your new mattress together. Lie on the mattress at the same time, testing for partner movement and how it feels to each of you. Check for uncomfortable pressure points and the amount of surface cushioning.

Consider sleep style

To test a mattress correctly, you have to lie on it like you do at home. If you’re a side sleeper, you may need a mattress with more cushioning to support your hips and shoulders. A back sleeper’s weight is usually distributed evenly over the mattress surface. However, without proper support, regions of the back (such as the lumbar area) may undergo excess strain as it works to support the spine’s natural curves.

Finding online resources – Not mattress review and rating sites

There are a lot of great online resources to help you sort through the amazing amount of information about mattresses and sleep health. Remember to bookmark and print off info you find helpful.
