FINDING THE BEST MATTRESS FOR YOU
You can find the best mattress for you by taking a short survey at the Sleepy’s Mattress Finder. There are several important factors when deciding on the perfect mattress. Your first consideration should be the mattress size. Is this mattress just for you or will you be sharing it with your partner? Will it fit in your home? The best mattress for a master bedroom is not the best mattress for a studio apartment!
Your second consideration is the mattress type. Not only are there spring mattresses on the market, but there are also several types of foam mattresses. The best type of mattress for you depends on how you sleep.
Third, do you want a particular mattress top such as a pillow top or Euro top?
Lastly, what do you want your mattress to rest on? There are a few different mattress foundations you should know about.
Finding the best mattress for you is not an intimidating task if you have done your research ahead of time. Reading over our mattress shopping tips can help you decide which is best for your needs.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How Much You Should Spend On Your New Sleep Set?
Mattresses come in a wide range of prices: for example, a brand name Queen set could range from $249 - $7,000. A good night's sleep is one of the best investments you can make, so you should buy the best mattress you can afford. Keep in mind that most of us spend as much as one-third (1/3) of our time in bed. Your investment will cost just pennies per night over the next ten years! In fact, a $2000 sleep set costs less than 28 cents per night (based on a full 20-year warranty).
How Long Your Bedding Should Last
Just as with price, the quality and life of your set can vary. We recommend you buy the highest quality bedding you can afford. Old bedding should be replaced when you feel it is no longer providing the support you need. Today's mattresses have some of the most highly advanced materials and features and are designed to provide lasting comfort and support and for many years to come. Learn more ways to make your mattress set last with our Mattress Care tips.
The Role Your Mattress Plays in Higher Quality Sleep
Considering we toss and turn an average of 60 - 90 times per night while sleeping, the quality of the mattress is quite important. Some people wake up from a sleep because the body is actually fighting the mattress and trying to conform to it. The problem is... your mattress should conform to you, not the other way around! Here at Sleepy's, we provide mattresses that will give our customers nothing short of the best quality, the healthiest sleep, and outstanding support and comfort...all at great prices.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR NEW MATTRESS
Body Impressions Many of today's top-quality mattresses use technologically advanced foams and fibers that are designed to be softer and more comfortable while ensuring your body has the support you need for good health. By cradling your body, these materials relieve pressure and are so comfortable that you'll probably toss and turn less in the night. For that reason, in the first few weeks you sleep on a new mattress that offers these extra comfort layers, you will likely notice some body impressions on the mattress surface.
These impressions are normal and shouldn't be considered a sign that something is wrong with your new mattress. Unless your mattress care instructions indicate otherwise, you may want to rotate your mattress from end-to-end and from top-to-bottom. After a few weeks, the impressions will begin to smooth out and, over time, disappear.
* You may feel a slight discomfort with your new mattress for the first week or so, this is normal and to be expected, your body is used to the old mattress and your new one is now supporting your body.
* It may take up to 2 weeks for your body to adjust to your new mattress.
* The layers of upholstery in old mattresses have become compressed and flattened over the years. Upholstery layers in a new mattress have a certain amount of air in these materials. In addition, a break in period is required. This is when new materials begin to settle and conform to the shapes and curves of the body. This takes time. While this adjustment is taking place, creases, or "comfort wrinkles," may be noticeable. This is a natural process and these creases are not defects. To help the new sleep system complete this adjustment to personal needs, the sleep set needs to be maintained. This settling of materials can be evened out by rotating the mattress on a regular basis. It is recommended that the mattress is alternately turned once every two weeks for the first three months, and then twice per year after that. The foundation should also be turned every 12 months.
* The other part of the bedding investment is the use of a proper frame. A queen or king sized bed needs to have a frame with a center support to compensate for any set. We also strongly recommend center support for full size sets of bedding. The difference in size between a queen and a full is minute (only 6 inches in width and only 5 inches in length). While not required by the manufacturer, Sleepy's has found that your full size set of bedding will perform better and last longer with center support!
* The mattress should conform to you, NOT you to it.
* Rotate your mattress as often as the warranty card reads.
