Mattress Myths: Separating Fact from Fiction
Apr. 15, 2023


Mattress shopping can be overwhelming and confusing, with so many options and conflicting information out there. This is why it's important to separate fact from fiction when it comes to mattresses. Here are some common myths about mattresses that need to be debunked:

  1. Myth: A firmer mattress is always better. Fact: The ideal firmness level for a mattress varies from person to person depending on their weight, sleeping position, and personal preferences. (True)

  2. Myth: The more coils a mattress has, the better it is. Fact: The number of coils in a mattress doesn't necessarily determine its quality. Other factors like coil gauge, coil type, and padding materials are more important. (True)

  3. Myth: You need to replace your mattress every 8 years. Fact: The lifespan of a mattress depends on its quality and usage. A high-quality mattress can last up to 10-15 years with proper maintenance. (Many cheaper mattresses do not last even 8 years. High quality latex mattresses last 15 to 20 years)

  4. Myth: A mattress with more foam layers is better. Fact: The number of foam layers in a mattress doesn't necessarily determine its quality. The quality and density of the foam used are more important. (True)

  5. Myth: You don't need to try a mattress before buying it. Fact: Trying out a mattress before buying it is essential to ensure it's the right fit for you. (True and so important)

  6. Myth: All mattresses are the same, so it doesn't matter which one you choose. Fact: Different mattresses have different features and benefits, so it's important to choose one that fits your needs and preferences. (Some people can literally sleep anywhere on anything. I would estimate at 80% of couples who have visited our showroom over the last 30 years have only one person driving the purchase)

By understanding these mattress myths and facts, you can make a more informed decision when it comes to buying a new mattress that suits your individual needs and preferences.
