How to Find the Best Bed

A. The best bed for you is the one that feels the most comfortable and supportive for your needs. The combination of size, softness, firmness, support, fabric combinations and technologies need to be taken into account, so you can find your dream “Goldilocks” bed. We offer a range of mattresses for you to choose from – so you can select the best sleep surface for your needs.

A. There are many types of beds available, including: innerspring, memory foam, latex, hybrids - and more! The Sealy technology system provides a sweet spot of support, comfort and durability. Sealy beds are specially designed to help you wake up feeling refreshed, rested and ready to start the day. Find out more about Sealy beds here.

A. When considering your comfort level (or whether you want a plush, medium or firm mattress), you should consider your sleeping style:
  • Side sleepers are best on a plush to medium mattress
  • Back sleepers should consider a medium to firm mattress
  • Stomach sleepers can try either a medium or firm mattress
Your weight and the level of back support you need are important factors to consider in relation to your comfort choice – find out more about the comfort levels available.

A. The best mattress for back pain will provide reinforced support to maintain proper alignment of your spine while you sleep. Our Elevate mattresses are designed to encourage supportive sleep, featuring ComfortCore® plus Sense and Respond technology, which is designed to align your spine and body.

A. If you have no existing back conditions and you want to achieve the most indulgent and refreshing sleep possible, try our luxurious mattresses from the Crown Jewel or Exquisite range.

A. Mattresses are not created equal. It is important to consider what is inside your mattress to ensure it has quality components to provide you with at least 8-10 years of comfort and support. You will also want to take into consideration:
  • how you like to sleep - on your side, back or stomach?
  • how much room you need to stretch and move around?
  • the amount you would like to spend on your new bed?
  • whether you normally feel hot or cold?
  • whether you have back or body pain?
  • your weight?
  • any mobility issues?

A. Temperature is an important factor to consider when sleeping. You may be too hot or too cold, which can negatively impact on your ability to fall or stay asleep. If you commonly feel hot when trying to sleep, you should purchase a mattress with cooling comfort layers, which are designed to transfer heat and maintain an optimal sleeping environment. Many of our products contain SmarTex®. This fabric technology draws away moisture and regulates temperature to provide you with a comfortable sleep surface. Find out more with our Elevate range.

A. A standard mattress depth is between 20cm - 30cm; more luxurious mattresses often measure 35cm and may reach as high as 45cm. You may want to consider the depth of the mattress in relation to the height of the overall bed (taking into account the mattress, base and legs) … Something to consider, if the bed is too high for your needs, you can consider a low-profile base (or adjust the legs), likewise if the bed is too low for your needs, you can consider a higher leg option.

A. Sleep is essential to help maintain your health and well-being. You need plenty of restful sleep to be productive and get the most out of your day. Everything you do while you’re awake is related to quality of the sleep you get. The right mattress will help ensure you experience restful sleep. While having a comfortable and supportive mattress is essential, it is also worth considering your wider sleep routines to ensure deep and rejuvenating sleep.
