Our reviews are made of up a combination of objective facts and our personal experience with each mattress or sleep product. We want to make sure you leave each review knowing what to expect – both from an objective standpoint and as if you’d just spoken with your friend about the new bed they got.
To help you get the best idea of what mattress will work for you, we have multiple reviewers with different sleep preferences and body types looking at the same mattress and share their unique experiences.
We also use a series of objective tests to show how these mattresses perform. All in all, you can get a well-rounded understanding of each mattress so you can make an informed choice.
In our reviews, you can expect to learn about the following with each mattress:
Construction Overview – We will go through each mattress layer by layer, explaining the material and thoughts behind the design. We will give you more information about mattress construction than you would ever want to know!
Support – By the end of every review, you’ll have a solid idea of how much support you can expect from the mattress. We will give our opinion based on the materials of the mattress and from our experience sleeping on the mattress.
Firmness – We provide two different perspectives on the firmness of the mattress in each of our reviews. Our reviewers have different body types. We give this two-person approached in order to give you the clearest idea of how firm a mattress will feel to you.
Feel – Reviews include a written and a visual sense of a mattresses’ overall feel. In addition to visuals, we give our subjective overview of the feel and tell you how it compares to other types of mattresses.
Bounce – Some people like bouncy mattresses, while others prefer to have very little bounce. We use a lacrosse ball to show you visually how bouncy the mattress is going to be.
Motion Transfer – If you sleep with a partner, it’s important to know how much you’ll feel their movement while you sleep. In our video reviews, we show off exactly how well the mattress isolates motion with a number of different tests.
Comfort – We will give you our subjective assessment about how comfortable each mattress really is. Our multiple review approach gives you a range of perspectives.
Pressure Relief – While we do provide our subjective opinion about the overall comfort of a mattress, we also have a way to give you a very objective visual of how well the mattress relieves pressure. In our videos, we lie down on a pressure map and you can see very clearly where you might feel pressure on the mattress.
Breathability – We will give you our assessment as to whether you will sleep hot on each mattress. This will be based on our assessment of the materials and our experience sleeping on the mattress.
Sleeping Positions Assessment – Is the mattress good for back sleeping? Side sleeping? Stomach sleeping? Is it good for combination sleepers? In our video and written reviews, we will tell you what level of pressure relief and support you can expect in the mattress in each sleeping position.
Value – We will let you know if we think the mattress is a value. Our experts assess how much you get for the price you pay. While this may appear subjective, we can tell a lot based on mattress construction and design. We will honestly let you know if you are getting a good deal on each mattress.
Customer Service – Some companies are good with customer service, while others are not quite as good. We share customer service experience and reputation with each review.
