Comfort, support and durability are the most important factors to look for first. After that, take price into consideration.
Yes, sleep positions matters in terms of which pressure points are affected during sleep, as well as how the spine is supported. Because each individual sleeper is different, the only way to determine which mattress and comfort level works best for your sleep position is to test out the different mattresses in the store. It helps to talk to the salesperson about which options are available so they can make recommendations based on your personal needs.
With today's modern mattresses, the support comes from the innerspring. The comfort layers determine the surface "feel." For example, every Serta mattress features an advanced and durable innerspring system designed to deliver proper spinal support. That means you can choose the mattress that feels best to you in order to receive the support you need.
A platform bed frame (like the Weekender Folding Metal Platform), eliminates the need for a box spring because it provides a supportive base for your mattress. It is a cost-saving option that is much easier to move than a box spring while providing space for storage under your bed. Box springs are essentially a wooden box covered in material designed to support your mattress. A bed frame provides the same option with a different look and feel. Our platform bed frames are durable because they are built to hold up to 2500 pounds of weight. Stop in to see them for yourself. A basic bed frame (featured in the video below) is designed to be placed under a box spring.
A hybrid mattress is a multi-layer bed that combines memory foam, latex, or gel along with an innerspring system. Sleepers can experience both the pressure relief of the foam layers and the sturdy feel of a classic spring mattress. It is the perfect blend of two or more superior products. At Good Mattress you can purchase hybrids from the top brands Diamond, Puffy Mattress. Puffy offers a perimeter pocketed coil mattress paired with high density support foam offering medium to plush feels. The puffy is ideal for side and back sleepers. The Diamond organic latex hybrid combines premium dunlap latex over a premium pocketed coil unit. The Diamond is perfect for stomach, back and side sleepers looking for a firm to medium firm feel in their new mattress. The Puffy Performance is the ultimate in hybrid mattress featuring ice touch fabric to regulate body temperature, pressure relieving gel memory foam, ghost bounce latex and a premium pocketed coil support system. The most popular selling mattress at Good Mattress is the puffy Performance medium plush mattress.
A Puffy mattress needs a hard surface which can be a box spring, platform bed, adjustable bed frame, or a better than a box spring folding bed frame available at all Good Mattress locations.
A Puffy mattress needs up to 48 hours to completely expand. Once you open the mattress it will expand to close to 80% and can be used at this point. It will expand 100% in 48 hours from unboxing.
All mattresses sold on mygoodmattress.com and in store at all Good Mattress locations are adjustable base friendly. While pocketed coil mattresses work on adjustable bed bases all foam mattresses perform better. An all foam mattress will stay on the base better and have less of a tendency for the quilted cover to bunch in the middle.
