How to Find the Best Mattress Online

Shopping for a mattress online can be intimidating. Many shoppers don't feel comfortable spending hundreds of dollars on something they can't try before they buy. But here's why shopping online surpasses the in-store mattress experience:

Mattresses sold online are more affordable than mattresses sold in-store because they eliminate middleman mark ups.

Sales representatives can be pushy. By purchasing online, you can avoid someone looming over you as you move from bed to bed to find the right one.

When you buy a mattress online, it's shipped right to your door--so you can avoid the hassle of moving it yourself.

Most online brands offer at least a 100-night trial period, which allows you to sleep on the mattress in the privacy of your home for nearly three months before you're committed to keeping it. If you decide the mattress is not for you at any time during the trial period, you can return it to receive a refund and the company will most likely get rid of it for you.  

Still, there are hundreds of models to sift through before making a decision. Before you begin your search, consider two things.

What type of mattress suits your lifestyle?

First, consider what you are looking for in a mattress. Do you sleep with a partner? If that's the case, you'll want to find a mattress that minimizes movement so your partner doesn't wake you during the night (and vice versa). Do you suffer from lower back pain or have a tendency to sleep hot? Are you prone to allergies? Answering these questions will help you determine what type of mattress (memory foam, latex, innerspring, or hybrid) you should look for from the start.

What is your body type and sleeping style?

When shopping for a mattress, you should also consider your physical needs and the type of sleeper you are. Do you sleep on your back, stomach, or side? Maybe you change positions throughout the night. A mattress is almost never a one-size-fits-all item. Some cater better to side sleepers than stomach sleepers, while others provide firm support and others are soft and plush. Your body type will also play a role in the type of mattress you ultimately choose. If you are a senior or plus-size sleeper, the construction and support a mattress provides will be all the more important to provide adequate support and a restful sleep.

If it's time for a new mattress, then there's no better time than now to invest in one. On that first morning you wake up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated from a great night's sleep, you'll be glad you did.
