One of the stupidest things you can do is compromise on the quality of your sleep in the name of a fancy brand name, trendy colour material, or momentarily eye-catchy shape of the mattress. Let’s get it straight from the very beginning – there’s no compromising on the quality of your sleep. In case you think it’s possible then go for it and tell me how you feel the morning after a crucifying feeling of back pain and numb body parts.

That feeling is probably reason enough for you to decide that you’re not going to settle for anything less than a sample of the best mattress, if you know how to choose one of course. That brings me to my point: what makes a mattress be the best one? Even more, is there a mattress that can be described as the best? Think about these three things when you decide to buy a mattress so you make the right choice, not the terrible mistake.

What you want and need

The truth is, best mattresses don’t exist, at least not in theory. However, when you wake up in the morning fresh with new forces to seize the day, you’ll say your mattress is the best one. That’s what makes the best mattress – its construction, the material, the level of firmness and size that are perfect for your needs and your sleeping position. Also, how does your partner feel? Is he/she also satisfied? If yes, then congrats, you have the perfect mattress.

Your sleeping style

There are restless sleepers and there are sleepers that fall so deep in a come that an earthquake of the highest degree wouldn’t be able to wake them up. That draws different sleeping needs and desires. Restless sleepers change positions often during their sleep, which means they’ll need a lot more space. Sleepers with deep sleep won’t have that problem – as soon as they’ve touched the pillow they’re off to Narnia – nothing to do with this world. So, consider your sleeping position too as it will help you determine how the best mattress should look and feel like.

Finally, get familiarized with the language

It’s important to know the mattress language. What do sizes mean, mattress materials and firmness degrees and all that stuff. You should be fully familiarized with the characteristics of each size so you know what to look for. For instance: king and queen size are completely different sizes, double bed is a lot smaller than the previous two mentioned, and have you heard of latex mattresses? All these things come with benefits of their own, so it’s good to know which combination of characteristics will suit your needs best.
