Mattresses – the best mattress?

What constitutes the “best” mattress?

What is the best mattress? Is it the most expensive, the most luxuriously-filled, the latest technology or the most comfortable? As with most things, the definition of “best” varies from one person to another.

Price

For some people, the best things come at a high price, and the amount paid for the mattress is a good indication of how good that mattress is. Whilst the budget end of the market allows you to buy a decent king size mattress for less than ?200, the more expensive mattresses can sell for way over ?1000. Is price a guarantee of quality? Maybe. It’s not a guarantee of support of comfort, however, so your “best” mattress may turn out to be your worst purchase.

Construction

There are fans of pocket springs and fans of memory foam. Some claim they’ll never try a different type of mattress because the one they use is absolutely the best. A pocket-sprung mattress, for example, which uses a high coil count, provides fantastic support. If you’ve tried one of these mattresses, you may feel that it’s the best you’ve ever had – and why would you want to change? Just like always buying the same make of car, it’s easy to remain loyal to one particular type of mattress construction. The downside is that if you don’t try other types of mattress, you may just be missing out on the best mattress for you.

Support

Of course, the best way to find the best mattress is to test a variety for the support and comfort they offer. There really is no other option – try as many as you can within your budget so that you can see exactly which type of mattress suits your sleeping position, weight, height and shape. If you sleep with a partner, you need to try the mattresses out together so that you can be sure you’re both happy with the final choice.
