If you are looking to get a new mattress that can be satisfying to both you and your partner, we recommend that you not take the process lightly. You should do lots of research, read mattress reviews, and shop around to make sure you know that you are getting the best mattress for both of you.
First, you must decide what things you like, what your different preferences are, and so forth to be able to start honing in on a general idea of what type of mattress you may want to get. There are certain mattress types that are more ideal for couples, so keep that in mind when you are looking around. For example, there are beds like Sleep Number that allow each partner to adjust the firmness of their side of the mattress. There are other mattress options like Helix that allow you to customize each half of the bed to the preferences of each partner.
As part of your research, you should take a look at as many mattress reviews as possible. You can read the reviews and ratings from individual bloggers, and you can also take a look at aggregator sites where you can read a lot of customer experiences all at once. What we would recommend you do is to take a look at as many different reviews as possible. The reason we say this is because liking a mattress is such a personal decision. It really depends on so many factors that you can’t easily say that because someone else liked the mattress, you definitely will too. Some people prefer firmer mattresses. Some like memory foam over innerspring. Some people sleep only on their side, while others sleep on their back and stomach. There are a lot of factors that go into why someone might like or dislike a mattress. With that said, you should read a lot of reviews for each brand to try to get a more overall consensus.
When you are taking a look at different mattress ratings from different people, you should also keep in mind a few things that are specific to people who sleep with a partner. For example, you should look for mattresses that are good with motion isolation. That just means that when your partner moves around in the bed, you won’t really be able to feel it. High density memory foam mattresses are known for being good with motion isolation, while other types of mattresses are not. Just be on the lookout for mentions of this when you are reading the different reviews, because you don’t want to be disturbed by your partner’s movements in the middle of the night.
You also will want to see if a mattress is good for sexual activity. Usually this means that the mattress has good bounce, stays quiet, and doesn’t heat up too much. This is a little more subjective, but it’s another thing you will want to look out for when you are reading different reviews of brands.
The overall advice is to take each individual review with a grain of salt. Try to read as many as you can, so that way you can get an overall consensus and a pretty good feeling as to whether you will like the mattress or not.
