To quote one of my favorite rom-coms You’ve Got Mail (therein quoting one of the most legendary movies of all time, The Godfather), “Go to the mattresses!” But we’re not focused on the metaphorical meaning here. Let’s keep it literal. Our backs are aching, and it’s time for a new mattress!
Mattresses are a very important investment. According to The Huffington Post, humans spend an average of 33 years of their lives lying down in bed! Choosing the right mattress is a major decision, not unlike choosing the right relationship. Both should ideally be supportive and long-lasting!
How We Picked the Best Luxury Mattresses
Do you remember the fairytale about the Princess and the Pea? In this classic story, a princess has to prove her royal affiliation through a study of sensitivity. A pea is placed underneath a stack of 20 mattresses, and after a restless night of sleep, the princess passes the test — she knew that there was something in the bed that bruised her back. My mom has always joked that I’m the Princess and the Pea because I can always tell when there’s a small pebble in my shoe or crumb in my bed. And to really live up to the name, I recently tested out dozens of mattresses before settling on one that was just right.
This is all to say that you can trust me as your source on luxury mattresses — I would never lead you astray. When deliberating between sleep styles, I made sure to focus on a few key factors: comfort, support and durability. Some prefer firmer foam while others prefer softer springs. I made sure to offer a variety of options so that you’ll be able to find the mattress that fits your personal preferences.
