How long should I sleep on a new mattress before I know it’s not right for me

August 19th, 2008

I get asked this question quite frequently so I wanted to answer it in a blog post to help others that may have this same question: How long should I sleep on a new mattress before I know it’s not right for me? Anytime you get something new, it takes time to adjust for example; shoes. You don’t just put on a new pair of shoes and have them all of a sudden feel broke in? It takes time. If you have been sleeping most of your life on a spring mattress, moving to a memory foam bed, or a latex bed for some people could take time. Others jump in and wonder why they waited so long.

Finding the right mattress

How to Find the right Mattress

Buying a mattress is a big decision. It takes time to know whether a new mattress is right for you. The mattress that seemed perfect in the store may be causing you neck or back pain at home. Luckily, mattress retailers take this into consideration. They realize that it takes time to know what mattress is right for you.

Most mattress retailers offer an in-home trial period. Often times, this trial period is free of charge. You are free to try your mattress for this period and decide if it will work or not. If the mattress isn’t quite right, you can return it. Make sure you know what the return policy is so you can take the “bad” mattress back and pick a new one, if needed.

Many return policies are the same. You must return the mattress in the original box with the original instructions and warranty card. There cannot be any stains or soiled parts either. You may be charged a restocking fee and you must have the original receipt. Make sure you are familiar with the store’s return policy before doing anything with your mattress.

After you become familiar with the return policy (just in case), begin sleeping on your new mattress. Take a careful assessment of how you sleep and how you feel when you wake up. Be aware that a bad nights rest could be caused from the mattress. Also keep in mind that it take a few weeks for your body to adjust to the new mattress. If you really feel that the new mattress isn’t giving you the support and comfort you need, take it back and try again.

When you are shopping for a new mattress, be familiar with the return policy. Make sure the store offers a free in-home trial period. You’d hate buying an uncomfortable mattress, only to find out that you can’t return it. Buying a new mattress is an important decision, so make sure you are an informed shopper.
