1. How old is your mattress?

As a general rule, after 8 years, it's a good time to consider getting a new mattress.

2. What position do you sleep in?

Are you a SIDE-sleeper, or do you prefer to sleep on your BACK? Perhaps sleeping on your STOMACH is the ideal position for you. Each sleep position has its own specific needs and ideal firmness level

3. What type of mattress do you need?

This mainly depends on personal preference and there are many varieties to choose from: HYBRIDS, LATEX, MEMORY FOAM, COILS, PILLOWTOP AND ADJUSTABLE.

 Falling into an array of categories (coil, latex, memory, hybrid, etc), pillowtop mattresses have a layer of soft material either stuffed or sewn into the cover. This works to add extra comfort and cushion for the sleeper.

Ideal For: Sleepers who prefer a softer and more cushion comfort. If you enjoy a cloud-like type of support and comfort most pillowtops will offer the best sleeping surface for you.

One of the most popular and widely used mattress types. Coil (aka Innerspring) mattresses have one or more layers of spring coils (generally steel) that provide the support and comfort. As technology advances, the number, types, and layers of coils change. A larger number of coils typically means better comfort and support.

Ideal For: Sleepers who want a more traditional coil/spring feel, great bounce, cooling, and strong edge support.

Just like it sounds, these mattresses only consist of memory foam. Memory foam mattresses are known for their great support, pressure relief, and body contouring. Historically, memory foam has had a bad reputation as "sleeping hot". However, many newer more advanced memory foams have been designed with superior cooling properties, creating a much cooler mattress than traditional memory foams.

Ideal For: Sleepers who want great hug, body shaping, contour, pressure relief, and support. There is a wide spectrum of foams classified as "memory foam" and not all memory foams are created equal. A good option for sleepers who want a more pronounced hug than many hybrid or latex mattresses offer.

Constructed from a combination of latex, memory, polyurethane foams, coils, and/or other materials, these mattresses usually are designed to maximize certain benefits, while also minimizing certain cons. For example, a latex + memory foam hybrid is able to deliver great bounce, cooling and responsiveness via the latex, but also provide great pressure relief and support from the memory foam.

Ideal For: Sleepers who want the best of all worlds. Great bounce, support, and cooling. A good all around option that is a very good choice for the majority of sleepers.
