How do you know when you need a new mattress? Your body will repeatedly tell you in the morning by being sore, stiff, still tired and possibly irritable.
Almost every store has their own brand-name mattress made by a major manufacturer so that model won't be carried by any other dealer. You won't be able to shop apples for apples from retailer to retailer since the names and mattresses are going to be different, so go to a reputable retailer.
Most brands have levels of quality from good to better to best. You'll be spending one third of your life in bed so salespeople encourage people to lie down on every bed in the store, and then buy the most comfortable mattress you can afford.
A mattress with layers of convoluted foam cradles you in a way that reduces pressure points so circulation is better and you don't have to move as much while sleeping. The result is that you reach a deep sleep point and stay there longer, allowing one to feel more rested upon waking up.
The most hi-tech mattress manufactured incorporates a top layer of visco elastic foam, which was developed by NASA. This foam adjusts to your body temperature and shape so your head, hips and feet have one level of support. Going one step further, the Sang bed is completely covered in visco elastic foam so it envelops your body and feels like a custom pair of shoes or tailored suit.
Finally, if you're thinking about buying a new mattress but plan on keeping the old box spring, think again. Just as you wouldn't buy a new car but use old tires, mattresses and box springs are manufactured to work together to give proper support so buy them together.
