Which mattress is right for you?

With so many mattresses on the market, shopping for a mattress can be overwhelming! However, our sleep experts are trained to help you find the perfect one for you! 

What position do you sleep in? 

The first thing we will ask you is if you wake up sleeping on your side, back or stomach. Once we know your favourite sleeping position, we can start determine which type of mattress is right for you.

There are essentially five different mattress types:

  • Foam: These mattresses are made entirely with foam and no coils. They tend to provide above-average contouring to the body, pressure relief, and motion isolation, making them a good fit for side sleepers and couples. These are often known as memory foam mattresses. 
  • Innerspring: An innerspring mattress has a coil-based support system and few other layers. While the coils offer some support, innersprings often lack in pressure relief. Their sleeping surface is bouncier and has limited motion isolation. These are typically lower in price and great for budget conscious shoppers. 
  • Hybrid: Hybrids have two central elements: an innerspring support core and a substantial foam comfort system. The comfort layers can include foam or latex, and sometimes will even include a shorter layer of coils (called micro-coils). These provide great flexibility and work for most sleeping positions. 
  • Latex: When all of the layers of a mattress are made with latex rubber, some call it an all-latex or true-latex mattress. For simplicity’s sake, we just use the term latex mattress. These offer top-notch bounce and durability with moderate contouring. When made with natural and organic latex, they are a top pick among eco-conscious shoppers.
  • Air Bed: Air beds are built with an air chamber as their support core. A pump — controlled by a smartphone or remote — is built into the mattress to add or remove air with the push of a button, giving sleepers the utmost in firmness flexibility. If you're sleeping with someone else, this is a great option as you can each control your own side! 

  • The next thing we will look at is the firmness that you desire.

    Comfort is subjective, which means that it’s critical to find a mattress that feels right to you. Firmness describes how hard or soft a bed feels. To compare options, we will often use a scale from 1 to 10. 

    When you visit us in-store we'll test out some options with you to help you determine your firmness of choice.
