Sleep, oh blissful sleep. For many of us, sleep feels like a luxury that we fit between the hours of our work schedule, family needs, and the other obligations that most of us Americans try to squeeze…Read More
Sleep, a seemingly easy task to accomplish for many, has become difficult. Between our ever busier schedules that slowly eat into our time that we should spend sleeping, stresses of work and our personal lives, and health difficulties, getting a full night of sleep has become incredibly difficult. Though the root of our sleep problems can be a number of reasons, often Mattress For LESS customers find that the reason they are counting sheep instead of sleeping is that their current mattress is in need of retirement or isn’t the right fit. You deserve a good night’s sleep, and Mattress For LESS would like to help you to start counting Z’s instead of sheep.

Our Top Rated Local® Bedding
At Mattress For LESS, we often get asked questions about finding the right mattress, bed frame, and pillow, and in many cases, the one that will fit the your needs and your partner’s different needs. Finding the right bed frame and headboard often have more to do with the aesthetics of your room than your comfort. However, finding the mattress that is just right can often feel like an incredibly frustrating chore. Below, we will discuss the basics of finding the perfect bedding to fit your style and sleeping patterns.
As we alluded to above, finding a mattress can be one of the most frustrating chores for couples and individuals alike. Finding the right mattress is often about your personal taste and needs. However, here are some steps to take to help you find the right one:
Finding the Right Mattress
Research – Living in the age of the internet gives us the opportunity to be more informed than ever. Read reviews and descriptions of mattresses online and know what your options are.
Ask Your Doctor – If you have back problems or alignment issues, asking your doctor what kind of mattress you need can definitely help narrow down your choices.
Test Drive – Trying your mattress before you buy it is a must. Though the option to take it home and sleep on it before you buy isn’t always available, laying on it for 10-15 minutes at the showroom can be a great test.
Knowing When To Ditch Your Old Mattress
Like saying goodbye to anything familiar, it can be difficult to ditch an old mattress, especially when you feel like getting a new one will be expensive or at least a monthly investment. For these reasons, we at Mattress For LESS provide easy financing options so that you can get a comfortable mattress by a respected brand for an affordable price. With that being said, here are some ways to know when it’s time to say goodbye to your old mattress.
If your mattress is sagging, then unfortunately your mattress has run its course and is ready for retirement. For, if your mattress is sagging in one direction or another, it is not giving you the support you need to not only sleep during the night, but not incur injury.
If there is an impression where you sleep, then your mattress is worn out. Like sagging, if your bed has an impression, then your mattress is no longer giving your body the support it needs. Years of sleeping on a worn out mattress can not only cause alignment issues, soreness, and other long-term discomfort, but also restless sleep that isn’t the quality sleep that you need.
Lumps are also a sure sign that your mattress is in need of replacement. Lumps, whether they be small or a large human-size, are a clear sign that your mattress has seen better days and is ready for its final rest. Lumps can create irregular pressure points on parts of your body that you don’t need; like all of the above signs, lumps can cause long-term issues that will not only impact your sleep, but also your health.
No More Memory (Foam)
Old memory foam will often become stiff and hard in a cool room and overly soft if in a warm room. Regardless of the temperature in your room, old memory foam is no longer doing its job and providing you the comfort and support you need if it is overly hard or soft. As we will mention—like a broken record—an ill-supportive mattress isn’t good for your body or your sleep.
Though difficulty sleeping can be the result of many issues, often it is due to an old mattress that has given up the ghost. Uncomfortable mattresses—as you are probably well aware of—not only impact how quickly you fall asleep, but also the quality of sleep. Regardless of the quantity of sleep, poor sleep is just as bad as little sleep.
Questions to Ask Yourself Before Buying a Mattress
Before you come into our mattress store, it is a good idea to ask yourself about what you want in your new mattress. Here are some questions to answer to know where to begin in your quest to find the perfect bed:
- What did/do I like about my current mattress?
- What mattress size do I want or need?
- What does my partner want and need in a mattress?
- Do I like a firm mattress or a soft one?
- Do I need a mattress with options for customization? If so, what are my priorities?

Adjustable base beds are a great way to not only get some of the customizations that you need, but also to turn your room into a relaxing retreat. Adjustable base beds can not only solve some of the problems that couples face, but can also aid some medical difficulties and typical sleeping difficulties such as snoring. An adjustable bed may just be your next favorite bed. Read on to learn more about the benefits of an adjustable bed.
An adjustable base bed can be the perfect mattress for anyone. However, those with a variety of health issues may find this bed particularly helpful in reducing discomforts that they deal with on a daily basis:
Lower Back Pain
Often the cause of lower back pain is unnecessary pressure on particular points on the body. An adjustable bed can reduce that uncomfortable pressure and can aid in stretching your back with the upright positions that this bed makes available.
Heartburn & Acid Reflux
Heartburn and acid reflux are incredibly uncomfortable, especially when you are trying to sleep. Because you can sit comfortably and elevated, an adjustable base mattress can help ease the effects of your heartburn.
Though an adjustable bed isn’t the ultimate solution for dealing with diabetes, it can greatly aid in the relief from its side effects. Many diabetics who use adjustable base beds enjoy better circulation due to the ability to elevate their legs during the night.
Having a comfortable way to sleep in an upright position during the night can greatly aid those who suffer from acute asthma and sleep apnea. Many are able to find a position on a adjustable bed that can help them have better quality and quantity of sleep.
Arthritis, especially rheumatoid arthritis, can be incredibly painful and the pain alleviated by regular massage. Because many adjustable beds have a massage function, those with arthritis are able to get the relief that they need and sleep through the night.
