A good night’s sleep, just like proper diet and exercise, is essential to your mental,
emotional and physical health. Yet many people just do not get the recommended
amount* of sleep needed each night to perform their best during the day**.
Instead, they sacrifice sleep and wake up to the consequences including difficultly
concentrating, irritability, weakened immune system and even higher stress. The
good news is that it does not have to be this way.
Better sleep can be as simple as sleeping on a better mattress! This brochure
provides solutions, ranging from how to select a new mattress to tips on creating a
sleep sanctuary, which will help you improve the quality of your life by improving the
quality of your sleep.
*Sleep experts recommend getting eight hours of sleep each night (7.5 – 8.5 is optimal).
**At least 40 million Americans each year suffer from chronic, long-term sleep disorders, and an
additional 20 million experience occasional sleeping problems. (National Institute of Neurological
Disorders and Stroke, National Institutes of Health, May 2007)

You MaY need a new Mattress iF…
Like your favorite old chair or worn pair of shoes, your mattress can still
feel comfortable long after it has lost its ability to provide your body
with the proper comfort and support it needs. Here are a few things to
consider when deciding whether it’s time to buy a new mattress and
Your mattress is five to seven years old
You wake up with stiffness, numbness, aches and pains
You had a better night’s sleep somewhere other than your own bed
(such as a hotel or friend’s guest room)
Your mattress shows signs of overuse (it sags, has lumps, etc.)


The “shelf life” of a mattress depends on several factors such as usage,
quality and even your own changing comfort and support preferences. In
general, a mattress set that has been in use for five to seven years may
no longer provide proper comfort and support, and should be evaluated.
A scientific study from Oklahoma State University, “Subjective Rating of
Perceived Back Pain, Stiffness and Sleep Quality Following Introduction of
Medium-Firm Bedding Systems,” found that participants with mattresses
five years old or older reported significant improvements in sleep quality
and comfort when sleeping on a new mattress, regardless of the sleeper’s
age or weight.
So it is important to compare the mattress and boxspring/foundation you are
sleeping on now to newer models every few years. After all, a new mattress
can make the difference in how you feel and function each and every day and
help you Start Every Day With a Good Night’s Sleep™

Sleep on this: the warranty on a mattress and foundation is not an
indiCator oF how lonG the produCt
should Be used before replacement. instead, the
warranty exists to protect the consumer from product
defects, not against gradual loss of comfort and support.

The right mattress for a great night’s sleep is the one that meets your personal needs for comfort and support. But before you start shopping for a new
mattress, you will need to know some bedding basics. With some general
mattress information on the variety of choices available, it will be easier to
choose the right bed for you—and get a great night’s sleep.
n INNERSPRING. The most widely purchased type of bedding uses the
support of tempered steel coils in a variety of configurations. Varying
types and layers of upholstery provide insulation and cushioning between
your body and the spring unit, resulting in a range of comfort choices.
n FOAM. Solid foam mattresses also offer a wide choice of sleeping
sensations or “feels.” They can be made of a solid core or of several
layers of different types of foam laminated together. Advanced
technology in polyurethane foams, refinements to traditional latex and the
new visco-elastic (“memory”) foams have added to the choice of comfort,
support and performance.

n AIRBEDS. Airbeds are now designed to look like the familiar mattress/
foundation (boxspring) combination, with an air-filled core providing
the support instead of an innerspring unit or foam core. These designs
also offer a range of “feels” and typically are adjustable to suit
individual sleeper’s needs.
n OTHER SLEEP OPTIONS. There are many popular mattress alternatives
to address individuals’ comfort, support and space needs, including
futons, adjustable beds and waterbeds. Futons are a popular alternative
for those who need a sofa by day and a mattress by night. Electrically
adjustable beds enable sleepers to adjust the head and foot of the bed
to the most comfortable position. And most waterbeds are now designed
to look like the familiar mattress/foundation, with a water-filled core
providing support, coupled with layers of upholstery for insulation and
surface comfort.
Regardless of the type of sleep system you decide to purchase, always
evaluate a mattress for comfort, support, durability and space. The mattress
that best addresses these needs is the mattress for you.
n COMFORT. Today’s top quality mattress/foundation ensembles are built
for superior comfort. Luxurious new cushioning materials and extra-soft
surface treatments create a plusher, more comfortable feel.
n SUPPORT. A good mattress and foundation will gently support your
body at all points and keep your spine in the same shape as a person
with good standing posture. Pay special attention to your shoulders,
hips and lower back—the heaviest parts of the body.
n DURABILITY. It’s the quality of the materials used and how they’re
put together that determines how long a mattress and foundation will
provide comfort and support.

n SPACE. Cramped quarters can turn sleeping into a nightly wrestling
match. A healthy person moves anywhere from 40-60 times a night,
including dozens of full body turns. You need freedom of motion
while you sleep and to help you relax while getting to sleep. Make
sure that your mattress gives you room to move around comfortably
throughout the night.
size Matters.
Two people sleeping on a full sized (‘double’) mattress only have as
much personal sleeping space as a baby in a crib. It is recommended
that bed partners buy a mattress no smaller than a queen mattress.
CaliFornia kinG 72” x 84”
kinG 76” x 80”
queen 60” x 80”
Full (douBle) 53” x 75”
twin 38” x 75”
Deciding between a queen or king size mattress really boils down to
personal choice. A queen bed is 60 inches wide by approximately 80
inches long, perfect for couples who prefer close quarters. King beds
are 76 inches wide by 80 inches long, the best choice for couples that
want maximum personal sleeping space. Both twin and full sizes are
approximately 75 inches long, which may be too short for some adults,
especially men. Full size allows only enough space for a single sleeper
shorter than 5 feet 5 inches tall.

Once you are familiar with the menu of mattress options available, start
the shopping process at a store that you know and trust. Remember, it is
important to have an educated salesperson who can guide you through the
many choices in bedding to help you find the mattress that best meets your
personal preferences.
Once in the store, be sure to “test drive” your new mattress following
the S.L.E.E.P. test. Remove your shoes (if you’re a woman, it’s best to
go mattress-shopping in jeans or pants) and lie down on several different
models in various positions, especially the one you usually sleep in. And
remember, those few extra minutes of focusing on the “feel” of different
mattress choices can save a lot of time later.
Keep in mind as you test various mattresses that comparison shopping by
model name may lead to frustration. You probably won’t find exactly the

same model name in one store as you did in another. As with so many products on the market today, many retailers prefer to offer products that are
exclusive to their store. For consumers that means more to choose from,
and following the S.L.E.E.P. test will help you make the right selection.

After selecting your new mattress, buy the manufacturer’s recommended

to work best together. In fact, buying the mattress without its matching
