There are three main types of mattresses: foam, innerspring and adjustable. The kind of mattress you choose really depends on your personal preferences. Foam mattresses have rapidly become more popular over the last decade or so, especially for online retailers, but all three types still are popular among consumers.
Here are just a few tips for what you might want to consider based on your needs and preferences when buying a new mattress.
- If you like bouncy beds: Innerspring mattresses are the kinds of beds that are most likely to deliver a bouncy sort of feel. These types of mattresses feature coils that are durable and interconnected. Individual pocketed coils reduce the ripple effect you might associate with older spring mattresses, especially when someone on one side of the bed would move.
- If you like firmer beds: Memory foam and latex mattresses provide much less bounce than other types of mattresses. To determine the quality of the mattress, you can look specifically at the thickness and density of the foam, which determines how deep you’ll sink into the mattress. Newer mattresses tend to have several different layers of foam, with the heavier foams on the bottom to provide support and the lighter, cooler foams on the top to deliver the comfort you crave in your mattress.
- If you want something unique: There are plenty of alternative types of mattresses available, including air mattresses and water beds. The Sleep Number air mattress is one that has become especially popular among consumers. It comes with a remote control to determine how much air is inside the mattress, giving you full control over the firmness of your bed. For larger beds, there are two side-by-side chambers, allowing each partner on the bed to choose their own level of firmness.
- If you like plush tops: You can find many types of innerspring mattresses that have foam outer layers that are covered in quilting. Just keep in mind that thick-looking pillowtop mattresses can compress over time, so if you’re looking for something really plush-feeling, you should choose a firmer, well-quilted mattress that you can cover with a replaceable mattress topper.
- If you sleep on your stomach: Stomach sleepers probably will not enjoy memory foam mattresses. Instead, they will want firmer beds, such as dense innersprings or air-filled mattresses.
- If you sleep on your back: You will want something with medium firmness. Look for a mattress that has a supportive surface but just a little bit of give so you can maintain a healthy spinal alignment while sleeping.
- If you sleep on your side: Find an option that supports your body weight while also conforming to your shape. Soft foam mattresses can work, but innersprings can offer some more pressure relief than other types of mattresses.
