Online mattress comparisons isn’t quite the experience as comparing mattresses in a store. When you’re comparison shopping in a mattress store, you’re mainly checking price tags and hopping back and forth to compare the initial feel of the mattress. But when comparison shopping online, you can evaluate many factors across multiple brands to truly find the best mattress for you.
Here are several tips for factors to look out for when comparing mattresses online:
The mattress type has a big impact on the feel of the mattress. Compare the materials in the mattresses you’re looking at including memory foam, latex, hybrid, innerspring coils, and any other materials to consider how the mattress will feel.
You can also take a look at firmness ratings. Generally, mattress brands will provide a number on a scale from 1 to 10 (with 1 being the softest and 10 being the firmest). Here at Mattress Clarity, we also identify a firmness rating for each mattress.
Support for Various Sleeping Positions
We understand that there is no single sleep position. Some sleep on their sides while others sleep on their back, stomach, or a combo of all three! We will evaluate each mattress and rate how it performs for each type of sleeper.
This is especially important to consider if you tend to sleep hot–you don’t want to end up with a mattress that traps your heat in the bed. Look out for cooling factors like gel beads, copper, coil layers, or other features that can help you sleep cool.
If you sleep with a partner or animal, you may want to consider how well each mattress isolates motion. This means, you won’t be disturbed by the movements from your sleeping partner(s).
If you’re investing in a mattress, you want to make sure it lives up to the price you pay. Look out for talk about how durable the mattress is. Are there a lot of complaints about it quickly sagging? Is the mattress very thin and people sink through to the bottom? Here at Mattress Clarity, we’ll always talk about the durability of a mattress.
You want to consider the price of each mattress to figure out which is the best value option or just the cheapest option if you need to find the most affordable option. Keep in mind that the larger size a mattress is and the more high-quality materials used in its construction, the more expensive it typically is.
Return Policy and Warranty
The return policy is super important for online shoppers. If you end up with a mattress that doesn’t feel the way you expected or isn’t working out for you, you want to know that you’ll be able to return it for a refund within a reasonable amount of time. The same goes for the mattress warranty. It’s important to understand what you need to do so you don’t void your warranty.
We hope that with these factors in mind, you can best decide which mattress is right for your sleep needs!
