Hey guys Martin here from Mathers clarity it's time to buy a new mattress and I get it it's overwhelming there are so many options out there how do you know it's right for you it's like buying a used car but that's what I want to help you with today I want to talk about the different types of mattresses the different sizes of mattresses how your sleep positioning and affect the best mattress for you other considerations Then finally when it's time to buy that mattress how to best do that whether it's online or in the store so let's get started right now so I want to start off by talking about the different types of mattresses and first we have innerspring mattresses this is the most common type of mattress they've been around for a very long time your great-grandparents slept on their spring mattress your parents place left on one you've got a slept on one when you're younger or you Might be sleeping on one right now they're very very common now innerspring mattresses they have coils in the mattress they're very very supportive they're good for back sleepers and stomach sleepers I'll get the same positions a little bit more specifically a bit later however for now you should know back sleepers and stomach sleepers are usually a good fit for an innerspring mattress they're also good for hot sleepers so coils leave a lot of Room for airflow they don't trap as much heat as a memory foam mattress might so if you're a hot sleeper innerspring usually a good match for you however if you're more of a side sleeper or I'd like to slowly sink into your mattress you're not gonna get that feel with an innerspring mattress again they're on the firmer side you're not gonna slowly sink in you're also not gonna get the best pressure relief when you're on your side so Definitely keep that in mind if you're a side sleeper next up we have memory foam the memory foam is one of the most popular types of mattresses on the market right now especially for bed in the Box mattresses memory foam has that slow sinking feel so when you're lying on it you slowly sink into the mattress feel your pressure kind of melts away it's also known as a viscoelastic foam it's the scientific term but we call it memory foam now Memory foam is a great match for side sleepers looking for more pressure relief it's also good for back sleepers to get some contouring for memory foam also you have joint pain issues or other pain issues memory foam can be a good option for you however if you're more of a stomach sleeper you have to sleep on top of your mattress memory foam not the best option then we have latex mattresses now a lot of latex mattresses are made from all-natural latex that Means they're eco-friendly and better for the environment they tick is also very supportive and it's more responsive than memory foam so it's easier to move around on top of a latex mattress it's also going to be more breathable to memory foam so you're not gonna sleep quite so hot on top of latex then lastly is a very durable material so it might cost you a little bit more for the mattress but it should be a longer-lasting investment so if you Want something eco-friendly something easy to move around on something breathable something's gonna ask you for a good amount of time checkout a latex mattress however again keep the price in mind last up we have hybrid mattresses now hybrid mattress is usually going to have coils in the support layer and some type of foam in the top comfort layer it's going to be either latex foam memory foam or some type of poly foam now a hybrid batters is great because You get the best of both worlds the supportive coils and the comfort of some type of foam so it's a very very good match for hot sleepers who still want a foam feel who want some more breathability in their mattress it's also a good option for people who want that foam feel but needs some more support so have your people like myself I usually need some more support I often go for a hybrid mattress of some kind it's also a good match for combination Sleepers because you get the support of coils and the comfort of foam so when you're on your back and your stomach's getting enough support there when you're on your side you're gonna get some good pressure relief especially that comfort foam is on the thicker side now there are the types of mattresses like air mattresses and smart mattresses if you want more information about that definitely check out mattress clary comm you want to check a waterbed out I just Want to say the 1992 called and they want their bed back but now I want to talk about mattress sizes first up we have the twin size mattress now twin is going to be the smallest option available for adults so it's pretty narrow and not too long it's going to be good for children teenagers and smaller adults so if you're larger like me or taller like me or you want something for couples twin is not your best choice then we have twin XL and twin XL is Going to be six inches longer than the twin so you get a little more length but that's the only main difference then you have the full and double size now full and double is going to be 15 inches wider than a twin so you get a little bit more rooms if you want some more room to spread out also a better option for couples than the twin or the twin XL next up we have Queen now Queen is one of the most popular mattress sizes it's 60 inches by 80 inches So a very good option for people who sleep alone and want some more room also a good choice for couples who don't need quite so much room moving on to the Kino the king is going to be wider than the queen so if you do sleep with a partner you want even more room the king is a good option for you you get to California king it's gonna be pretty much the same size but it's going to be 4 inches narrower but also 4 inches long or so I should actually opt for a California king because I'm 6-7 but those are the sizes in a nutshell so I'm sorry if I bored you with all the information about mattress sizes but it is really really important but I don't know what's most important to you in a mattress is it the size the firmness the feel or something else you sleeve your answer in the comment section below I let's see what everyone has to say but I want to talk about sleep positions and how your seat position determines what Type of mattress is best for you so let's start with back sleeping now back sleepers want to look for a mattress with a balance of comfort and support so when you on your back you want your hips to sink in the right amount went a little bit of contouring perhaps but you want the matters beneath that to be supportive enough for you so you don't kind of fall into the mattress so here at mat is clearly like use a firmness scale of 1 to 10 now 10 is going to be The firmest that is sleeping on the floor 1 is going to be like a cloud there's complete softness so that's our firmness scale if you're more of a back sleeper you want to look at something between 6 and a half and seven and a half it's kind of called medium firm something medium firm is usually better for back sleepers now if you are more of a side sleeper you want something softer than average so something under six and a half so on the softer end of the Spectrum now that's because you want to feel good pressure relief on your shoulders and your hips but if you're more of a stomach sleeper you want something on the firmer end of the spectrum something over seven and a half out of ten you wanna make sure you're getting enough support over your entire body and specifically under your hips you don't want to bow in there it get out of alignment feel some lower back strain but definitely should think about With your sleep musicians and what type of mattress you should be getting so I get it this is a lot of information but we've already done the work for you we have made lists of the best mattresses for back sleepers the best mattresses for side sleepers and the best mattresses for stomach sleepers check those lists out on that as clear accom or here on YouTube but now let's talk about what else you should think about we're looking Matros so let's start off by talking about cooling now some mattresses are going to sleep cooler than other types of mattresses for instance as I mentioned before inner spring mattresses have a lot of room for airflow they're gonna have some nice cooling capabilities so they're really gonna sleep quite cool on most inner spring mattresses also hybrid mattresses and then latex mattresses latex is going to be a very breathable material more Breathable than memory foam now memory foam is known for trapping heat but it does not mean it's always going to make you sleep hot so make your memory foam in your matters if you like memory foam is in few to something like gel copper or graphite to make sure it's not prepping so much heat and helping to dissipate heat next up we have weight so I'm a larger person and a mattress that is a good fit for someone who's a hundred sixty pounds like gel on our Channel now it's not always the best match for someone of my size I'm 230 pounds now that's because with my larger weight I press further into mattresses than Joe does feel some more pressure than he does so specifically when I'm on my side a thinner comfort layer might give him enough pressure relief but somewhat of my size I press further in feel some more pressure on my shoulders on my hips so whether you're a lighter person or a Heavier person keep your weight in mind and make sure your mattress a good fit for you so you also want to think about durability you're about to buy this matter so you don't want it to fall apart in like two years you want a mattress is gonna last you for a good amount of time so with high-density material something durable like latex or high density memory foam or high-grade coils you're gonna spend a lot of money with matters again and make sure it's Gonna last for a good amount of time so I'm single it's not a big problem for me but for you couples out there some other things you do want to think about first off motion transfer now motion transfers basically you're lying down on one side of the mattress you're trying to go to sleep your partner gets in that a bed and that wakes you up you need your sleep so you want a mattress it's going to cut down on motion transfer something's going to isolate each of Your motions to both sides of the bed so you want to usually focus on something with memory foam if you do sleep with a partner so that with a slower reacting foam it's gonna cut down on that motion transfer make sure you're sleeping soundly even if want to use moving around at night and then lastly you want to think about edge support so it support is basically how close can you sleep to the edge of the mattress without feeling you're gonna fall off The mattress and I had this issue with other mattress so whether it's foam or coils you want to make sure the edge of the mattress is very very supported because you bought the mattress and you and your partner's feel asleep towards the edge of the bed and get to use every inch of that mattress so at this point you might know what type of mattress is right for you it's time to buy your mattress let's talk about the four easy steps to buying A mattress in a mattress store so first off dear research and good thing you're doing a research right now so go and informed you're gonna walk into that mattress store and I'm gonna tell you it's gonna be overwhelming it's a lot of mattresses to look at and that salesman's gonna see you and they're gonna Zone in on you because if you're like me you're an easy mark so get ready to protect yourself you want to have your research done and know exactly what You're looking for the first time I went to buy a mattress this guy kept telling me he was going to hook me hook me with the best deal possible I thought he was Candyman or something and I ran out of the store I'm not kidding I never do that again so go in prepared step to try out the mattress lie on the mattress now this is one of the benefits of buying a mattress in a mattress store you can actually try it out For as long as you like so if you're a side sleeper lie your site for a good amount of time make sure you're getting the pressure relief you need if your stomach sleeper make sure you're getting the support you need take your time with that matter to make sure it's the best option for you step 3 get all the warranty information about your mattress while you're in the store and make sure you understand every point because you don't want to get your mattress home it Starts to break apart very quickly you want to make sure that your warranty is gonna cover those kinds of issues step 4 plan to negotiate now one of the things about buying a mattress in a matter stories sometimes you can negotiate with the salesperson if you're a great negotiator that's awesome congratulations I am a terrible negotiator so if you're like me bring a friend bring a parent bring a spouse someone who is good at negotiating make Sure you're getting the best deal possible on this mattress so the other way you can buy a mattress is online and for a long time people kind of scoffed at buying a mattress online like it comes in a box that can't be comfortable but now benda box mattresses are a huge part of the mattress market I've tried a lot of bend the box mattresses and I can say they're very very comfortable very supportive as well but how do you buy this matters what's the best way to buy An online mattress well again there are four easy steps first step is again do your research and you're doing it right now you want help comparing different types of matters in which you can do in a mattress store you can't do online definitely check out some of our compares since I'm mattress query calm we have written comparisons and video comparisons as well on YouTube step two you want to make sure you're getting the Best deal possible for your mattress so first check out mattress Clary calm

times get the best deal possible step 3 this mat is going to come to your house in a box and sometimes that box is going to be heavy so ask for a friends help Transporting it inside and up to your bedroom open the box to get the rolled up mattress put on your finger foundation cup of that plastic it's a very easy process if you're a little bit worried about the weight of that mattress that I would definitely go with the white glove delivery option a lot of companies have white glove delivery some guys will come set it up in your house take the packing material way and take away your old mattress this is a very Good option step 4 use your trial period wisely most bed and box companies have some sort of trial period like 90 nights 120 nights or sometimes a whole year long make sure this mattress is the right fit for you during that trial period so if you're a side sleeper its soft enough for you pressure relieving it out for you if you're a back sleeper you get a nice balance of comfort and support your stomach sleeper its supportive enough for you if it's not a Good match for you you spend a lot of money on this send it back a lot of these companies have very easy return policies so send it back and get the right mattress for you whoa Congrats you made it that is a lot of information but now you have all the tools you need to find the right mattress for you but if you
