Mattress buying guide.
With so many options available, researching your next mattress can be difficult and overwhelming. If you don't know what to look for, consider these 5 things when choosing a new mattress.
Ultra-dense memory foam.
Consumer surveys show that memory foam mattresses have the highest owner satisfaction in the industry. It was first used by Tempurpedic in the early 1990s, and is still the main selling feature of most high-end mattresses today.

Can you clean it?
What if it's too firm or too soft?
If your mattress is too soft or too firm, some online mattress companies will offer you a free topper. This means you may spend $800 - $1200 on a new mattress only to cover it with a $50 topper from Amazon. It is a bad solution to the reality of mattress buying.
Buying online is certainly better than buying in a store, but most of the new online brands only offer a single firmness option, and you may be forced to settle for something that is not perfect.
Novosbed is the only company to offer true in-home adjustable firmness after you buy.Learn more
Will it sleep too hot?
Foam sleeps hotter than spring. The 2 most best ways to reduce that heat build-up are airflow and moisture wicking.
Real airflow and moisture wicking technology is hard to design and expensive to produce which is why some companies tout chemical additives, blue chemical spray coatings, paraffin-soaked covers, and other concepts with no evidence that they reduce heat build-up through the night.
Other companies use low-cost alternatives, like low-density lofty covers (pillowtops). While this can sleep cooler, it separates you from the memory foam and can form body indentations quickly.Learn more
