Consumer Reports Take On Choosing The Right Mattress

 

Choosing the right mattress is important. However, it is not all that easy to do.

The team at Consumer Reports created some tips on how to choose the right mattress. It’s not about falling for the fancy terms used by mattress retailers. It’s about trying and testing them out for yourself.

They explain it here in this 3 minute video.

Here’s my take on this:

Before you head out mattress shopping do a little research. While it is true the big box retailers have insane markups, not all mattress retailers inflate their prices.

Also, find out about the quality of the materials used in the mattress. For instance:

  • What is the density of the foam used? 1.5lb polyfoam and below is lesser quality than a foam 1.8lb and above.
  • Are any of the materials all-natural? If you are sensitive to chemicals or you just want to sleep on a bed that will limit the amount of toxins you breathe in then you may want to consider an all-natural mattress.
  • What type of innersprings are used? You can find out about the different types of innerspring mattresses here.

Consider Consumer Report’s advice when mattress shopping and take your time. Don’t rush when you are testing out the mattresses since a good night’s sleep plays an important role in your productivity.
