Adjustment Period

Normally it takes your body several weeks to become accustomed with the feel and support of your new mattress set - just as you might expect with a new pair of shoes. Also, the new materials in the comfort layers may take a little time to conform.

Body Impression

The padding layer on a new mattress will start to settle immediately. The resilient materials used in these mattresses are designed to conform to your body's contours. The load (supporting ability of the comfort layers) does not change as a result of the settling process. This is not a structural defect or a warranty issue. Body impressions actually decrease over time when the comfort layers are given time to settle to their normal height. Body impressions up to 1" - 11/2" are common with a new mattress.

Frame Center

Always use a strong, stable foundation frame. Queen and king size beds require a metal bed frame with a rigid center support to comply with our warranty. Center supports for queen should have one leg, while the king size should have two.

New Mattress Smell

Just like a new car, your mattress may have that new smell. Before putting on your bed linens, let your new sleep set "air" for a few hours upon removal from the plastic packaging.

Mattress Pad

The use of a mattress pad may prevent your mattress from becoming soiled or stained, which would void your warranty. The use of a mattress pad is certainly recommended.
