A memory foam mattress is the most comfortable mattress…
So says the meta-site SleepLiketheDead.com and its summary of reviews and ratings of the top rated mattress types. In this review (http://www.sleeplikethedead.com/bed-mattress-review-home.html), memory foam mattresses rate the highest with an overall owner satisfaction rating of 81%. Latex mattress are a close second at 80%, and traditional innerspring mattresses are the lowest rated mattress for comfort at just 63%. In this summary, SleepLiketheDead uses a sampling to make its determination, using over 6000 samples for the innerspring and memory foam results and just over 1000 for the latex results. According to the site, their mattress data is based on “20,356 Owner Experiences Gathered From 948 Sources.” So is this perfectly accurate? It’s hard to say as this type of sampling is not an exact science, but, using this site’s sampling method, it is clear that memory foam is widely considered the most comfortable mattress.
How do you know if a mattress is the right choice for you? The first steps are to do lots of research and read lots of reviews. Then, if you think a mattress may be the right fit for you, make sure you have at least 90 days to try it in your own home. No matter how comfortable a mattress may feel in a store, there is no way to know if it is a good fit for you without an extended in-home trial. Steer clear of “comfort” guarantees, which is just a slick way to say “store credit.” We have seen way too many people lose a lot of money this way and still not have a mattress that works for them.
Sometimes it helps to talk about your mattress options with an expert. We offer live support Monday – Friday, 8:30 am – 4 pm, Eastern Time. And don’t worry about a hard sell from us — with our 365-day money-back guarantee, we would take a financial beating if we tried to sell our mattress to someone for whom it isn’t a good fit. We will listen to your wants and needs and recommend the mattress we think is best for you, even if it’s not memory foam. Want to chat about your options? Give us a call toll-free at 800-607-0340.
