- For proper support, a mattress and foundation must support the body at all points with the spine in the same shape as a person with good standing posture.
- Ask the salesperson if they can show you illustrated or actual “cutaways” of the interior of the different mattress and foundation choices so you can see what’s inside.
- Compare store services such as delivery, financing and removal of old bedding as well. Many retailers today offer mattress removal service as part of your purchase price or for a nominal fee.
Shop for the best value, not the lowest price. The best assurance for good mattress performance over many years is to buy the highest quality sleep set you can afford.
