How to choose a mattress in Boston

boston skyline

There are several things to keep in mind when shopping for a new mattress. Budget is of course important. But comfort is one of the most important factors. Waking up with chronic pain or stiff back and neck pain are indications that you are sleeping on the wrong type of mattress. Things to consider:

  1. Sleep position
    • Back: Back sleepers benefit from a firmer foam or hybrid (foam and innerspring) mattress
    • Side: Side sleepers may look for a softer mattress, like a memory foam or pillow-top
    • Stomach: Stomach sleepers need firm spine support, so a firm hybrid or foam mattress is beneficial
  2. Mattress type: Foam, innerspring or hybrid
  3. Materials: Natural, organic, latex, textile, fiber and gel
  4. Construction: Local or outsourced production
  5. Price: Pricing varies depending on mattress size, materials, type and brand
  6. Pain: People with lower-neck and back pain need a firm mattress, while those with muscle aches and joint pain benefit from a medium-firm foam mattress.
  7. Body type: Sleepers of different heights, frames and weights require different mattresses. Couples who have different needs may want to look for a split-top adjustable mattress.
