Figuring out what mattress to buy can be a real challenge. Shopping for a large purchase is usually done with caution, lots of time investment and in-depth research. Often people pick a mattress that feels good, well for the few minutes they lay there uncomfortable at the store.

Most of the time, every mattress feels good because you have been walking around all day shopping. So you pick one, take it home and it is excellent for a few days or weeks or maybe even a couple of months, but then your body starts to ache and you just can't sleep through the night.

It is the mattress's fault for these sleepless nights and body aches.

This situation can be prevented with the BedMatch program Kingsdown Mattress Brand offers. It is one of a kind and can accurately predict what type of mattress will best support you throughout your entire sleep.

Even better yet, it can match your partner too! They even make their mattresses where you and our partner can have two different mattresses fused together as one without it looking any different.

When shopping for a mattress, you definitely want to start with the BedMatch program.

So you might be asking yourself, does that mean it will determine if I need a firm or soft mattress?

Firm or Soft? What Mama Bear Needs Might Not Be Right for Papa Bear

As Goldilocks might say this mattress is too hard, this mattress is too soft, and this mattress is just right! The reason the bed was too hard was that it had to support big papa bear, the soft mattress was for delicate mama bear and the just right on her was baby bear because Goldilocks was close to the same size and weight as the baby bear.Mattress Support

Size, weight, sleep position, and 15 other systematic and scientifically backed measurements are included in the BedMatch program to help make this decision more natural for you.

Knowing what type of mattress is needed to help support your body and keep you aligned throughout the night is crucial to a good nights sleep. Making sure you get a full nights rest will not only help you feel better but it will also keep you sharp and focused so you can perform at your best.

A simple rule of thumb...

Usually the larger you are, the firmer the mattress you will need while the small you are the softer the mattress you will need. Make sure your bed is not too soft or too firm before you purchase your next mattress.

Different Size Mattresses

Deciding on what size mattress you buy comes down to room size and body size.

Keep in mind these things when determining which size mattress to buy:

  • Room size

  • How often you might move

  • How many people sleep in the bed

  • How long do you want it to last (children do get bigger)

  • Price

  • Your size

Mattress Size

If you don't plan on moving much and your room allows it, then you and your partner will want to spring for a king size bed to sleep comfortably without interrupting each other's sleep.

Don't forget those little ones get scared and crawl into bed now and then. If you and your spouse share a bed, but don't have a big room or plan to move you may opt to get a queen.

There is still enough room for two average size people to share the bed. It is also easier to move a queen size bed rather than a king size bed. Full beds are excellent for teens or single people who have smaller rooms. Twins are the best for young kiddos who still want the room to play in their bedroom.

There isn't a right or wrong answer when it comes to mattress size, you have to make the best decision for you and your family. Keep in mind your mattress should last you around 10 years, so you want to make a wise decision when it comes to purchasing a mattress.
