I’ve read all the literature on the guides to choosing a mattress on this site, and while I found it informative, the act of actually choosing the right mattress is a bit more cloudy.
I was having trouble understanding what I’m “feeling” with different models of mattress. I tried feeling which mattress gave me less discomfort on my pressure points, but I found that none of the mattresses felt uncomfortable. My girlfriend and I have found a couple that we don’t agree on completely. We think they are both nice, but I preferred the feel of one, and she the other.
So I started looking to see what makes up these mattresses, but I am having trouble finding info and decifering the info I do find. Some of it looks like jargon names for materials.
Simmons Beautyrest Elite Sidney PF
Therapedic Opulence SPT
The top on the Therapedic felt thicker and a little more firm(dense?) while the Simmons’ top felt a little flat… Soft, but flatter…
The Therapedic banner laid on the foot of the bed makes mention of 100% latex(layer I’m sure). It most resembled the Puretouch Line on their website.
This site breaks down the layers in the Simmons, but I’m not sure how to make heads or tails of the quality of material.
Can anyone lend a poor mattress novice some advice?
*Also, we are planning on checking out Croydon Mattress Factory this weekend, but I would like to try to figure out what we like and what they have that might suit our needs.
Thank you for all the info I’ve already learned from this site and the knowledge that’s sure to come!
EDIT Judging from a perspective of coil count/price being the higher the better. Budget wise, our IDEAL mattress from croydon falls on the Pinnacle 2020. POSSIBLY the 2030, but we’d rather stay a little lower.
