It's natural that you'd need some advice to help guide you through your online mattress purchasing journey. But selecting the right mattress is only one aspect of it. You may have a million other questions, ranging from how online purchasing even works in the first place and how to clean your mattress to how mobile phones can affect your sleep. In our advice section, we take you through a dozen frequently asked questions and give you all the necessary advice, tips, and recommendations.
How to choose a mattress
Choosing a good mattress is very important. That’s why we’ve written a whole guide to help you choose the right mattress. You will find information on the level of firmness, different sleeping positions, recommended budgets, and in-depth information of what mattresses are made of.
How does online shopping work?
Have you found the right mattress but are afraid to order it online? There's no need to worry. Ordering online is super easy.
Did you know that most mattress brands that sell online offer a 100-day trial period? Once you order your mattress online, you’ll receive it within 3 to 5 business days, rolled up in a compact box. The trial period starts after delivery. Here you can test the mattress in the comfort of your own home. Try sleeping on your back, stomach, or side, and take the time to decide if the level of firmness is right for you. If you’re not completely satisfied with the mattress, simply return it - free of charge - and the brand will refund you.
There’s no reason to be afraid of ordering a mattress you haven’t tried in a store first.
Which level of firmness should you choose?
Mattresses have different degrees of firmness. They can be more or less firm, more or less soft. This is difficult to ascertain when making a purchase online.
That's why we’ve created a firmness scale, as evaluated by our independent testers. The scale ranges from 1 to 10 and will give you a good indication of the degree of firmness to expect.
