Know four basic comfort levels when you test

Comfort ranges from very soft to ultra firm - so establish your comfort preference first. Remember: Comfort is different for everyone. Try several different comforts when you're in the store. A good mattress should provide you with the right support at every comfort level.

  • Ultra Plush a very soft-feeling surface.
  • Plush firmer than the ultra plush, but not as firm ascushion firm.
  • Cushion Firm/Medium firmer than a plush, but softer than firm.
  • Firm the hardest of the comfort levels.

  • Ask about the product's features and benefits.
  • Compare it to one of higher and lower price.
  • Learn the difference between like firmnesses but different prices.
  • Buy the best mattress you can if it passes your comfort test.

Ask questions about the mattress

  • What's inside the mattress that offers proper back and body support?
  • Are there pressure relieving materials to allow for a deeper sleep?
  • What's inside the mattress that minimises tossing and turning?
  • Are the coils twice tempered? This helps the coils retain strength and prevent mattress sag.

Know the coils - four things factor into innerspring support

Shape of the coil + Thickness of the wire + Quantity of coils + Tempering

  • SRxII Titanium Support found in Sealy Posturepedic Range. Sense and Response support conforms to the body and delivers deep-down support.
  • Patented PostureTech ST coil found in PosturePremier ranges
  • Above all, choose what feels right and is supportive.
