To Sleep Like An Angel, You Need The Right Mattress!
Mattress Buying Tips…
Things To Think About … Before You Walk into the Store
Check Those Dimensions!
Make sure your purchase fits the planned space!
What are the dimensions of your room?
What are the dimensions of your old mattress? Bed frame?
Is the old bed frame the right size?
Does it have a qualifying center support?
NOTE: All mattresses are hand-tailored and can vary in width and length by approximately 1.5 inches.
Wear comfortable clothing!
You’ll climb up and lie down on a variety of mattresses, turning and adjusting to find your favorite sleep positions.
Take Your Bed Partner!
Or only one of you may end up happy with the choice.
Take the Mattress Replacement Test:
Are you more sore when you wake than when you went to bed?
Does fitful sleep leave you unrested?
Is your bed bowl-shaped?
Is your mattress 10 years old or more?
Does your body recognize each lump and bump in the bed?
One or more “yes” answers means you need a new mattress.
Things To Think About … In the Store
Buying a bed means making sense of a dizzying variety of materials, construction techniques and features. Do you have a favorite? We do! Pick a favorite type.
Most everyone has slept in these – springs provide support and various upholstery layers make it comfortable.
Memory Foam Mattress
Memory foam mattresses are distinguished by their delayed, form-fitting responsiveness, which creates the sensation that you are “melting” into the bed while it slowly forms itself to the shape of your body, leaving a delayed impression of your contours even after you get up.
Latex offers equivalent support and durability, but is less conforming and has a faster recovery time However, latex lacks the highly conforming nature and slow recovery time that characterize memory foam. Latex is a very compelling alternative.
Once reserved for holidays and houseguests, today’s high-end air beds look similar to innerspring mattresses but use air in lieu of coils. By adjusting the amount of air in the mattress, these mattresses can be configured to a precise level of desired firmness, or even different levels of firmness on each side of the mattress.
The newest styles combine these materials types into one perfect mattress and are considered hybrids.
All Simmons products Beautysleep, Beautyrest recharge and Beautyrest Black Mattress use certified approved foams with CertiPUR-US seal of approval!
The foam in your mattress has been tested and certified by an independent laboratory to meet specific criteria for physical performance, indoor emissions and environmental stewardship.
CertiPUR-US® approved foams are:
• Low emission (VOCs) for indoor air quality
• Made without prohibited phthalates
• Made without ozone depleters (no CFCs)
• Made without mercury, lead or heavy metals
• Made without formaldehyde
• Made without PBDEs
Mattress and boxspring foundations are usually purchased together because worn-out foundations can shorten mattress life by as much as 33%. An old box spring may not correctly support a mattress, thus voiding your new mattress’ Manufacturer’s Warranty.
NOTE: Check warranty card for exact Manufacturer details.
Super Size Support!
Mattress sets are manufactured for those of average height and weight. If you substantially exceed that, you’ll need special attention from our sleep comfort experts to find a premium mattress adequately accommodating. You should also anticipate spending a little more than the average person.
Things To Think About … After You Bring Your Bed Home
Body Impressions, Naturally!
Expect your new mattress to develop indentations called “body impressions” during the first several months of use. Depth of body impression will vary, depending on size, weight, and positions of the sleeper. These impressions are normal and were anticipated in the design of the mattress. Because only the area where you sleep is compacted, you receive a false visual impression the mattress is defective, “sagging.” This is not the case; the structural integrity of the mattress is not compromised by body impressions. As the padding layers compress, the performance of your mattress will actually improve! NOTE: Body impressions up to one and a half inches during the life of the mattress are not a warranty concern.
Riding the Ridge!
When two people sleep on a mattress set, the padding materials tend to settle more rapidly on each side than in the middle. The result is a visible “ridge” down the middle of the mattress. A remedial solution would have one partner sleeping in the middle whenever possible to help reduce this ridge. NOTE: The ridge is considered normal, and as such is not covered under the Manufacturer’s Warranty.*
Don’t Touch That Tag!
Many people remove the white tags sewn into each mattress or foundation. We strongly suggest you keep them in place for the information contained thereon, until you’re safely past the warranty periods. If it accidentally becomes dislodged, staple the tag to your warranty card.
Potential Structural Damage!
Lack of proper support can cause structural damage that will void your warranty! Queen and larger size mattresses and box springs require the use of a frame with proper center support and sufficient hardwood cross slats. NOTE: Check your warranty card for exact manufacturer details.
Ah, the smell of new mattress!
New product odors are common. Our mattresses are packaged in sealed plastic bags immediately after production. A scent that comes from the new materials, foams and/or fiberfill in the new mattress can sometimes be unpleasant but not harmful and should dissipate within a few days. To help speed the process air out your new mattress prior to putting on your mattress pad and sheets.
U.S. Hand-Assembled, May Contain Small Imperfections!
All mattresses in the U.S. are hand-assembled. Because each mattress is unique, close inspection may reveal minor scuffs, blemishes, or loose threads that will not affect the performance of your premium mattress nor the Manufacturer’s Warranty. Clip loose threads with scissors rather than pulling them.
NOTE: The fabric cover is not covered under the warranty. Protect Your Payment Proof! All our manufacturers’ warranties require proof of purchase before any claims are considered. System upgrades or computer failures at our store may obliterate your proof at point of purchase. If you know where your own copies are, you’re protected.
* Warranty Check!
If your new mattress set becomes stained, torn, or unsanitary, it will void not only the Manufacturer’s Warranty but also our Comfort Exchange policy. The relatively minor cost of a mattress pad to protect your mattress makes it a very worth-while investment.
