Shopping Tips

Shopping Tips

Be Prepared

  • First, find a few reputable bedding retailers in your area.
  • Then, before you venture out, dress the part. Wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing.

Bring your partner

  • We encourage sleeping partners to shop together for a bed. Plan on testing a variety of mattresses to find the set that matches each of your comfort needs.


Do the Sealy Comfort test and let your body be the judge

  • Sit on the edge of the bed. Do you feel your weight being supported? Now lie down on your back for a few minutes with your feet off the floor. Relax, get comfortable. Roll onto your side all the way to the edge. The mattress should gently support and conform to your body at every point on the surface. You shouldn’t feel any pressure points. And remember, firmer is not necessarily better.


Buy the biggest, most comfortable sleep set you can afford

  • Start by testing the best bed and work your way down. (Also, to determine your comfort preference, start by comparing plush and firm beds.)A good night’s sleep is one of the best investments you can make, so buy the best sleep set (i.e., mattress and box spring) you can afford. Keep in mind that most of us spend as much as one-third of our time in bed. Your investment will cost just cents per night over the next ten years!
