Mattress Types

Support Your Sleep Health

You deserve the right mattress type for your sleep habits. Our selection of mattresses has just what you need. Get full-body support with a pocketed coil bed or the body-contouring comfort of memory foam (note: gel types provide a cooler sleep surface). If you prefer the best of both worlds or have a sleep partner to compromise with, a hybrid mattress is the key. Is a plush comfort level more your speed? Shop for a pillow top mattress!

Discover the Best Type of Mattress to Buy to Sleep Better

There’s nothing quite like waking up refreshed after a good night’s sleep, but if you have a bad mattress, that may never happen. Now it’s time to start looking for the type of mattress to buy that will give you sweet dreams and fewer restless nights. We’ll walk you through some of the mattress options you’ll find when shopping with Spencer’s, like what type is ideal for back pain, specific sleep types, and kids. No matter what you need, we’ll help you figure out which might be best for you!

What type of mattress is best?

The perfect mattress depends on the individual, but there are a few key considerations when you ask yourself, “What type of mattress should I buy?”

  • Spine support and alignment are key when choosing a new mattress.
  • How do you sleep? Side, back, and stomach sleepers will find benefits in different types of mattresses.
  • Do you share the bed with someone who has a different sleep position?

Pocketed coil mattresses come in most comfort levels, including extra firm, firm, and medium, so they’re good for back sleepers. Pillow top mattresses offer everything from firm to ultra plush, so try them out and match one to your sleep habits! Our firm memory foam mattresses will help back sleepers as well. Hybrid mattresses come in all comfort levels, so they can work for any type of sleeper, including partners with different sleep positions.

What type of mattress is best for back pain?

The proper mattress will eliminate most back pain, so you wake up with fewer aches and pains. As stated in the above list, the best mattress type to buy in store depends on you. For back sleepers, medium-firm mattresses are the best types of mattresses to eliminate back pain. For side sleepers, shop for a plush mattress for proper spine support. And for stomach sleepers, a firm mattress provides the support you need to get better rest.

What type of mattress is best for side sleepers?

Let’s talk about the best type of mattresses for side sleepers. If you like to curl up on your side at night, you might find that a firm or even a medium mattress is too hard. A plush or ultra plush mattress will support your hip and shoulders to take away that back pain that plagues your mornings. Look for memory foam, pillow top mattresses, and hybrid mattresses to give yourself the right amount of support and deeper sleep

What type of mattress is best for kids?

Your child’s sleep needs are just as important as yours. The younger your child, the more sleep they need, so you’ll want to make sure they’re getting the proper back support to give them rejuvenating, calming, and restful sleep. Just like with an adult, the right type of mattress to buy depends on your child’s sleep habits. Back sleepers, side sleepers, and stomach sleepers all benefit from the same type of mattress, regardless of age.

How to determine what mattress to buy?

Now, you might be wondering what the best way is to determine the right mattress to buy. All the info we’ve provided should help you get there, but there is no substitute for trying out a mattress. Come by our store and take each of our mattress types for a spin. Lay on them how you would at home in your actual sleep position. Most people, when testing a mattress, simply lie flat on their backs, even if that isn’t how they sleep. Remember, your sleep position is the most important factor when finding a new mattress.

We’ve covered the basics of the type of mattress to buy when you’re looking for better sleep. No matter your sleep habits, you’ll find the mattress type that will have you feeling ready for the day in the morning.
