Which Type of Mattress Should You Buy?
There are two main types of mattress. The more traditional of the two, an
, is composed of padding and metal coils, which offers a strong foundation of support at a fairly low cost. The other, a
memory foam mattress
, makes use of a flexible material that cradles the body by giving way under major pressure points such as the hips and shoulders while still supporting curves in the neck and back. Memory foam is particularly good at isolating movement, making it an excellent choice for couples. If you can't decide, shop for a hybrid mattress, which combines elements of innerspring and memory-foam design.
What Add-Ons Do You Need?
Buying an entirely new mattress isn't the only way to create a cozy snoozing surface. Adding a

can add an extra cushion of pillowy comfort, as well as
protect against spills, stains, and bedbugs
