Test-drive your bed
making a decision
By JEFF LILLY
Choosing wisely: A well-designed mattress is essential to a good night's sleep and it is a good idea
to research your options before you buy.
I remember when I was a student in a flat,
sleeping on a wire wove thing that was
shaped like a rusty boomerang. I ended up
with a dodgy back and had to go to the doctor
for something that would see me through
You definitely need a good mattress, not
just to allow you to study, but for good health.
Choosing the best mattress can seem quite
There are so many types and sizes, and
considering it is a major purchase it's
important to be prepared before you shop.
A good night's sleep is important for your
health, wellbeing and ability to work
efficiently. I recently looked at beds and
mattresses in a major department store.
Some of them looked like they needed
ladders to get in and out.
Once you are familiar with the menu of
mattress options available, start the process at
a store you know and trust.
This may be a major department store, or a
place that specialises in beds. Consultants at
the latter are more likely to give you good
Once in the store, be sure to ''test drive''
your new mattress.
Remove your shoes (if you're a woman, it's
best to go mattress-shopping in trousers) and
lie down on several different models in various
positions, especially the one you usually sleep
in, for several minutes.
And remember, those few extra minutes of
focusing on the ''feel'' of different mattress
choices can save a lot of time later.
Just like any other major purchase, it is
important to research your options before you
buy. Discover what is available before you
shop so you have a clear direction of what will
suit your individual needs.
The most satisfied consumer is typically one
that has made an informed decision.
Mattress types have benefited from
technology and options have changed
dramatically in the past 15 to 20 years.
Memory foam and latex mattresses have
become quite common and don't cost an arm
and a leg (just one or the other).
Inner spring mattresses have changed as
well, as manufacturers are incorporating new
types of foams into the top of mattresses.
Inner spring mattresses are the tried and
true type of mattress that we have all slept on
at some point. Inner springs consist of
hundreds of wires of different gauges spun
into coils. Most coils are then topped with
some kind of foam or quilting to give a softer
These mattress sets should last 5 to 10 years
with normal use. Most people find spring
mattresses uncomfortable when compared to
water beds or foam mattresses. Standard inner
spring designs often cave or hammock in the
middle of the bed after a few years of use.
Memory Foam was introduced to the world
by NASA. Memory Foam has been designed to
offer pressure relief and is still used in medical
situations to relieve pressure sores where a
person is confined to a bed.
No two memory foams are alike and they
can vary greatly from one manufacturer to
Be sure that you are comfortable with a
company before you purchase this type of
mattress from them.
Memory Foam is not a natural product; it is
a polyurethane foam.
Find a sleep set you like and then see what
levels of comfort and support you can get for
the same amount of money in another store.
