How We Rate & Review A Mattress

Choosing a mattress is a lot more involved than choosing a living room sofa, or dining room chairs. A mattress is the most important and most frequent piece furniture that you’ll use, on a nightly basis. Therefore, it’s imperative you know what you’re buying when it’s time to shop for your new mattress.

Nowadays, there are so many variables to evaluate and differences between mattresses, which means when it comes to us conducting reviews there are many valuable insights to be offered to our readers. 

Our team of experts have been reviewing mattresses and similar bedding related products for over 5 years, and it’s safe to say our knowledge is extensive, and advice is unbiased.

In this section we go a little more in-depth as to how we go about our mattress ratings, and why you should make these considerations when buying a new mattress.

What Type Of Materials & Layers Are Used?

One of the most important and perhaps the first thing to note when seeking a new mattress is the type of material that it’s constructed of. For example, is it memory foam, latex, or hybrid? These will determine quality, longevity and comfort of the mattress. Most manufacturers now have their own proprietary foams which we usually discuss in our reviews.

The layers which make up the mattress should be arranged in a logical fashion, and without scrimping on the good stuff. Meaning, there is no point having 0.5″ layer of latex and the rest being made of spring, and then marketing it as a latex mattress, right? We’ll highlight anywhere that we see poor quality of the likes.

Is It Comfortable and Supportive?

In this industry, comfort is usually a synonym for firmness level. Quite often, the firmness is described on a scale of 1-10, where 1 is softest (cloud-like) and 10 is hardest (like sleeping on a plank of wood). We don’t score a mattress on its firmness level, because that’s up to the manufacturer to choose their market, and comfort is relative.
 
However, our reviews will emphasize on the level of support provided by the mattress. For example, if a mattress sags too much, or doesn’t provide the necessary spinal alignment and creates pressure points, we’ll mark it down.

Does It Have Good Edge Support?

Whether you have a Queen size mattress or a smaller sized Twin, there will be a time when every sleeper comes close to the edge of the bed. The edge is usually the weakest and least supportive, which is why manufacturers often try to address this, and why we include it in our mattress reviews. 
 
The question is; how will the mattress cope with a person’s weight on the edge? Will it support, or will it give in?

Does It Sleep Cool?

Memory foam is known to trap body heat and quite often leads to sleepers feeling hot at night. This is an issue that has been addressed by manufacturers of the years. Those who choose to use memory foam in their mattresses will often infuse the foam with materials such as copper, graphite, green tea, gel beads, and so on. The question is, how effective is this cooling? Does it still sleep hot? Is the attempt at cooling just a useless gimmick, or does it effectively regulate body temperature?

Is It Good For Partners?

Not everyone shares a bed, but if you do, then you’ll be interested in motion isolation
 
We rate mattresses on how good they can absorb and prevent movement from the other side of the mattress by someone (or a pet) sharing the bed. For example, if your partner is tossing and turning all night, or comes to bed after you, this may cause you disturbance.
 
Generally, innerspring mattresses are the worst at isolating movement, latex is fair, and memory foam is the best. However, there exceptions to this rule, which we discuss further in our reviews.
 
Sex also falls into this category. An active sex life means the need for a good quality and compatible mattress. Latex and innerspring are good for sex as they create most bounce, while memory foam has the least. That’s not to say memory foam is no good for sex; it simply depends what style of sex you prefer.

Is It Certified Safe?

The more certifications a mattress has, the better. We like mattresses that have at least a couple certs, but there are minimum requirements for some. For example:

If you’re buying a foam mattress or anything which has a foam layer, look out for the CertiPUR-US certification. This will mean that it’s made without ozone depleters, PBDEs, TDCPP or TCEP (”Tris”) flame retardants, mercury, lead, and other heavy metals. Also, the foam will contain no formaldehyde, phthalates and is regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Lasttly, it will ensure low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions for indoor air quality (less than 0.5 parts per million). 

Other’s to look out for when it comes to textiles and fabric components of the mattress are Certified GOTS and OEKO-TEX® Standard 100.

What Are The Company Policies?

This has nothing to do with the mattress itself, but more to do with what the company has to offer. We are generally evaluating three different things here, and can have a big impact on whether a company scores high or low.
 
  • Warranty – Most mattress companies offer a minimum of 10 years, but some provide a 20 or 25 year warranty. If you’re lucky, you’ll find a manufacturer that will offer a lifetime warranty.
  • Shipping – Everybody loves free shipping, and some mattresses come with free delivery, but others you’ll have to pay for. Additionally, if you’re after a white glove delivery, some companies will make it possible while others don’t offer the service at all.
  • Sleep Trial – A buzz-term in this industry, the length of time you get to try the mattress for in your own home before you have to send it back. The average sleep trial period is around 100 nights, but some offer a 365 night trial.
  • Returns – Some companies offer a free and seamless returns policy, while others can be long winded and chargeable. We often break this down in our review.

Is It Good Value For Money?

When taking all of the above considerations into account, we finally must decide on the value aspect of the product.

For example, questions we’d ask ourselves are; is the mattress worth the price tag? What is it lacking? What justifies the price? Could we get better value elsewhere?
