When it comes to buying a new mattress, it’s easy to feel a little overwhelmed with the amount of choice available.

Try before you buy:

Simply patting the bed down or stretching out for just a minute or two isn’t enough. If you’re shopping for a new mattress, we would recommend that you spend at least 10 minutes on each bed, or preferably up to 20 minutes if you can. So, lie down and relax!


Try not to feel self-conscious when testing beds!

Relax – you need to find the right bed, so get into your favourite sleeping positions, move around and get comfortable.


Think about your alignment

You need to ensure you have the correct support to allow for natural spinal alignment. A good quality mattress should be both supportive and comfortable. We would recommend that you lie on the mattress in your usual sleeping position and check that your spine aligns correctly.


Do your research!

It’s always a bonus to know what type of mattress you’re looking for before you go into any store and so we would recommend that you read up on your options first. Luckily for you, we’ve already pulled together a handy guide on the different types of mattress firmness levels available.
