Try it first!
Do not ever buy a mattress without trying it first right in the store. You should wear comfy outfit and an easily removed pair of shoes so you can be ready to try any mattress. If you shares your bed with your boyfriend/ girlfriend or husband/ wife … you should go with them to try mattress for your bed. If you feel some kind of being embarrassed for trying a mattress in a store in front of public’s eyes then you should think about it again. You might spend 1/3 of your life on that potential mattress so spending some minutes on it first is nothing.
You should put the mattress stand up and look if it was distorted or falling. It may be a sign of bad sewing from low quality manufacturer. Other than checking texture and sewing techniques of mattress, you also have to check material on the surface. A cool, comfy surface would be great for your good night sleep.

If you like it, spend a little time to lay on both side, lay on your back, lay procumbently, spend even more time with your usual sleeping positions in your favorite spot on the mattress. It might take 10 to 15 minutes to lay on a mattress that you like is not really eanough. Don’t be embarrassed just because salers looking at you, just focus on experiencing the mattress’ comfort. Our advice is “do not let other people incite you to buy anything. Listen to your body and put your mind and heart into the product”.
