A quality mattress is a serious investment. You can expect a well-made mattress to last eight years or more, so you want to be satisfied that you’re getting the right one. Of course, “right” in this context means right for you—the type of construction and firmness that give you the best night’s sleep may not be the same combination that works for others. Given those two factors, you might think that you can’t possibly buy a mattress online, and that to make an informed decision you need to go to a mattress store. Believe it or not, that isn’t the case.
When you go into a mattress store, you do have the opportunity to touch and even lay on the mattresses you’re considering purchasing. But testing out a series of mattresses for a few minutes each is a far cry from knowing what any of those mattresses will feel like after you’ve slept on them night after night. Dreamy softness for a few minutes may end up giving you aches and pains from poor alignment in the long run, while too-firm support might feel great at first but give you sore spots on pressure points over time. If you’re dealing with overzealous sales associates or are self-conscious about testing out mattresses in a crowded store, you might even end up rushing through your comparisons.
The truth is, it doesn’t matter if you lay on a mattress for 5, or 10, or even 15 minutes. The only real way to know how a mattress is going to work for you is to sleep on it for an extended period of time. It can take up to 30 days to know exactly how your body is going to respond to a new mattress. In some cases, a store’s return policy will have already expired by that point. The rationale is that because you’ve had an opportunity to test the mattress in the store, you don’t need a long return period, even though an in-store test isn’t an accurate way to gauge the quality of rest you’ll achieve.
This means that one of most important things you should consider when you’re deciding where to buy your mattress is how long you’ll have to test your mattress at home.
