Mattress comfort is very subjective. Some sleepers take comfort enveloped in layers of plush pillowtop, while others prefer to sleep on top of a flatter surface. Most importantly, you want to find an Oregon mattress store that showcases all the different mattress comfort types, so you can make the best personal decision.
There are three general mattress comfort types, although each one runs the gamut from harder to softer, depending on the manufacturer, mattress line, and materials used.
Every manufacturer offers a mattress comfort scale rating from 1-10 to help you narrow down your search.
It’s not easy figuring out how to find the most comfortable mattress on your own. That’s why we invite you in to meet with one of our trained Sleep Specialists who will be committed to helping you determine your preferences. The best way to know for sure is to lay on a few different showroom mattresses. You’ll know at once the ones that are “too hard” or “too soft” for your liking.
Once you find the right mattress comfort type, try a few different manufacturers to experience the difference. Try going up or down a number to see if the subtle change is preferable. Keep in mind that you can always buy a pillowtop or foam pad to go overtop a firmer mattress, but you cannot retrofit a mattress that is too soft. Experts recommend spending a good 10-15 minutes on a bed before deciding to buy.
