To help you choose a mattress that will offer you years of comfort, we’ve compiled this list of tips.

Did you know, we spend nearly a third of our lives sleeping? This makes it essential to invest in a mattress that will give you the quality sleep that you deserve. Here’s how you can choose the perfect mattress to suit your needs.

Buy only the best-quality mattress that you can afford

Your mattress should last you between five and seven years, so it’s not something you should skimp on. Rather invest in the best quality that you can afford and that will give you a healthy, comfortable night’s sleep.

Do your research before buying

Although it’s tempting to buy the first good mattress you see on special, it’s important to do some research purchasing so you know which brands offer good quality.

Mattress technology has likely changed since you last purchased a mattress, so spend some time researching the latest innovations.On the Sealy website, you’ll find information about different mattress comfort levels as well as the technology and expertise that go into making Sealy mattresses such a great choice.

Choose the correct size mattress for your needs

The wrong size mattress, no matter how good the quality, can lead to poor quality sleep, because you end up lying in uncomfortable positions.

A standard double bed measures 137cm and offers a sleep surface area for two people that’s equal to a cot-mattress width each. If you’re a couple, you probably want to invest in a queen or king size to give both of you more space.

Mattresses are also made in longer lengths, which is a good investment if you are taller than average.

Go to a reputable shop

Ready to buy that perfect mattress? Head to a store that you feel comfortable dealing with and where employees are trained sales specialists who are able to answer your questions and help you find the comfort and price that suits you.

Take your time to find the right comfort level

Once you’re at the store, take your time to find the correct size and comfort level. Sealy, for example, offers Firm, X-Firm, Medium, Plush and Ultra Plush comfort levels to suit your preference.

Wear comfortable clothes and shoes and take the time to lie down on the different comfort levels and mattresses in your usual sleep position. This will let you feel the support and comfort that each bed offers in order to choose the best one.
