Buying Guide for Mattresses in Chicago

Tips for Purchasing Your Mattress

Chicago Mattress Outlet carries a wide variety of discount mattresses in Chicago, including top brands and designs such as Sealy Posturepedic mattresses and Simmons Beautyrest mattresses. Here is a basic buying guide to help you select the right mattress for your home, based on the different types of features and technologies available.

Which are Better: Soft or Firm Mattresses?

Remember that just because a mattress is soft doesn’t mean it won’t be supportive. When trying out different mattresses, always start by lying on the firmest mattress first, working your way to softest. Repeat the process once or twice to discover what levels feel the most comfortable. As you lie on the mattress, think about how your shoulders, hips and lower back feel. Give your body a chance to respond to the mattress at these key touch points. Unfold your arms and lie on the bed as relaxed as you can. Don’t be afraid to ask the salesperson for a few minutes to yourself. Once you’ve narrowed down your choices, lie down on the mattress you are considering for at least 10 minutes. This will give you a better feel for the comfort level.

Size Matters

Always buy the largest mattress size your room can accommodate. Couples should always choose either a queen or king size mattress, and shop for a mattress together to ensure ample sleeping space for each of you.

Measure your headboard and the height of your current mattress and bring this information to the store. If you decide to purchase a thicker mattress than you currently have, consider getting a low profile box spring so your headboard will be visible.

What Makes Sealy Posturepedic Mattresses Special?

Advanced comfort materials in Posturepedic innerspring mattresses provide advanced pressure point relief, absorbing and redistributing pressure from your body weight.
