When shopping for a new mattress, your goal is to find a sleep set that offers you the optimum comfort, support and durability – and still be within your budget.

Use this Mattress Shopping Guide to make sure you choose a mattress that’s best for you.

Mattress Comfort/Bed ComfortBed size is an important factor when purchasing a new bed or mattress

Modern foams and fibers used in today’s premium mattresses offer a variety of comfort options for every type of sleeper. Because comfort is personal, the best way to find out if a mattress is comfortable for you is the old-fashioned way; try it out in the store.

Mattress Support/Bed Support

The best mattress for your back is one that supports your spine at all points while allowing it to maintain its ObusFormel curve. All ObusForme mattresses feature today’s most advanced and durable innerspring systems, designed to provide proper spinal support throughout the night.

Mattress Durability

Today’s sleep sets are very durable and built to last. But it’s important to remember that mattresses today are designed as a set – the mattress plus the foundation (box spring). Together, a new mattress and foundation will provide the best sleep set performance. Don’t try to replace just a mattress or foundation!

Mattress Size

Considering that most people sleep better when a partner isn’t crowding them, you should buy the largest size mattress that fits your bedroom and your budget. Mattresses come in six standard sizes: twin, twin XL, full, queen, king and cal king.  Size availability will vary by retailer, mattress collection and comfort options.

Mattress Warranty/Bed Warranty

Always make sure your new ObusForme sleep set comes with a warranty that protects you against manufacturer defects. Do not purchase bedding “as is” and always make sure your ObusForme product has its law tag attached. Keep a copy of your ObusForme warranty brochure on file for reference.

Ask Questions

If you feel confused when shopping for a mattress, ask a retail sales associate. Either way, you’ll get help making sense of your options.

Mattress Retail Services

Some mattress retailers offer additional services that can save you time, money and frustration. These might include delivery and setup of your new mattress, removal of your old one, or special financing deals.


You spend one-third of your life in bed, so investing some time to shopping for your new mattress is likely to be time well spent. A little research about the features and benefits available can pay off a hundred times in the quality of your sleep for years to come.
