Mattresses

Shopping for mattresses is essential but not as complicated as you may think. Our selection includes sizes from crib all the way up to king.

First there are many sizes of mattresses. Get the mattress that is the right size!

Twin/Single
A twin (aka single) accommodates one person and is most commonly used for daybeds, trundles, and children’s beds. A full grown adult may find that a twin mattress is a tight fit. 
Twin Extra Long
Most commonly seen in college dorm rooms, twin extra long mattresses provide excellent length while at the same time saving space in cramped quarters. The best selection of bedding is available in the summertime before the school year begins.

Full/Double
A full (aka double) is the recommended size to comfortably accommodate one adult. Two individuals might find a full size mattress a bit snug, as each person will have much less than a twin size mattress each. This size is perfect for a guest bedroom or in studio apartments.

Queen
A queen is America’s most commonly used mattress size. Equal in length but not nearly as wide as the King, a queen is a great fit for small master bedrooms. Crammed for space? Have narrow doorways and staircases? Custom queen mattresses are also available with a split box spring for easy moving.

King
A king (aka Eastern King) is quite a bit wider than a queen, offering each sleeper the equivalent to a twin size mattress. This bed is well-suited for a large master bedroom. This mattress comes standard with two twin size box springs as a foundation.

California King
The California King (aka Western King) is the standard size king on the West Coast. The longest mattress by four inches, the California King is comfortable and spacious for all adults. Comes standard with two box springs.

Measure your available space if you are considering a larger bed. Make sure you have enough to accommodate it
 

Form a Plan
       For you to know how to buy a good mattress you first need to know what you want and where you are going to shop for it. Here is a sampling of questions to ask yourself before you you embark on this task.

It’s Better When They’re Together…
A mattress and box spring, that is. A new mattress should never be placed on an old box spring. Not only might it void the warranty on your new investment, but it can also decrease your comfort, the overall support of the bed, and the life span of your mattress.

Innerspring vs. Foam – Which Do You Choose?
The materials that make up the inside of your mattress determine the support your body gets throughout your sleep cycle. Whether you prefer traditional innerspring, latex, memory foam, or even a combination of both, you’re sure to find the mattress that’s perfect for you.

Pillowtop, Euro Top, Tight Top (Oh My!)
Although the first 2 provide extra layers of comfort while you sleep, there is a very distinct difference between them. A “pillowtop” has visible layers of extra cushion sewn on top of the mattress, and a “euro top” has the extra layers of cushion sewn directly into the mattress. If you prefer sleeping without the extra layers, a standard “tight top” mattress is for you. Just keep in mind that you will get the same support on all three types, so the decision on which top to choose is based completely on your personal comfort preference.

Too firm? Too soft? Ahhh, Just Right
Do you relish the idea of sleeping on a stiff-as-a-board mattress? Think that a firmer mattress provides the right amount of support? Well, you could be right, but BEWARE! Although a firm mattress does relieve your body’s pressure points and keep your spine aligned, a too firm mattress could be too much of a good thing. In the same respect, the thought of being enveloped in a plushy, cloud-like mattress sounds like a dream come true. But, a mattress that is too soft will not provide the proper support for your body, and may do more harm than good. The key to this Goldilocks type game is finding the mattress that is “just right” for you.

Put it in a Frame
What pulls all of these mattress factors together is a high-quality bed frame. And with so many great choices to pick from, you’re bound to find one that fits your style and price range. Wood or metal? Wheels or no wheels? The choice is yours – but remember, center support is crucial and highly recommended for Queen mattresses and up. It will not only support the mattress and box spring to prevent sagging and caving, but it will protect your warranty as well.

How Much is this All Going to Cost?
Well, that all depends on how much you value your sleep.
Let’s say you’re one of the good ones who get 8 hours of recommended sleep every night. That’s 8 hours a day, 365 days a year, for an average of 8 years, which equals over 23,000 hours spent sleeping on your mattress! And considering the price range of mattresses is tremendous (the average brand name Queen set can cost you anywhere from $250 to upwards of $5000), you should buy the best mattress in your budget.

 

Mattress Shopping, Simplified.
Sealy is always here to help. This, for example, is meant to better your in-store experience. But first, peruse our site and find a few mattresses that interest you. Print them out. Then read this guide. Before you know it, you’ll have mastered mattress speak and know what you need to for your visit. Happy shopping.


The right bed begins with the right retailer
If you’ve had a positive experience somewhere, start there.
Make sure they offer the quality and the selection you desire.
 

Come prepared
Dress comfortably so you can test many mattresses.
Bring your favorite pillow to replicate the proper sleeping position.
Know the dimensions of your current set (floor to top of mattress). Know length and width as well.
Know your room dimensions for possibly purchasing a larger set. You may decide to upgrade.


Be smart in-store
Start with a comfort / technology test on good-quality mattresses.
Determine your comfort preference first. Try a plush and firm innerspring mattress.
Next try other technologies if you are curious to experience different feels, including memory foam and latex foam mattresses. At this point, do not worry about the details of what’s in the mattress.


Know four basic comfort levels when you test


Each manufacturer may have different names, so choose by your comfort preference. Remember: Comfort is different for everyone. So 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 less firm than cushion firm.
Cushion Firm–firmer than an ultra plush, but softer than firm.
Firm–the hardest of the cofort levels.


Found one you really like?
Ask about the product’s features and benefits.
Compare it to one of higher and lower price.
Learn the difference between like firmnesses but different prices.
Buy the best mattress you can–if it passes your comfort test.


What to ask
What’s inside the mattress that offers proper back and body support?
What’s inside the mattress that minimizes tossing and turning?
If it’s an innerspring, insist that the coils be twice-tempered. This helps the coils retain strength and prevent mattress sag.
All mattresses must meet Federal Flame Retardancy guidelines.
Purchase one that uses fabric and fiber for flame retardancy versus one treated with chemicals.


Know the types of mattresses
Innerspring
Memory Foam
Latex Foam


Know the difference in the coils inside an innerspring mattresses
Innersprings have many types of coils, which can cause confusion. Here’s what you need to know. Four things factor in to the support of an innerspring mattress.
Shape of the coil;
Thickness of the wire (The lower the number, the thicker the coil.);
Quantity of coils;
Tempering: Make sure the innerspring is twice-tempered to prevent sagging.
