Does this describe you? Morning after morning, you wake up to a dull ache in your back. You sit on the mattress for a minute; you stretch. You shake the sleep out of your head and get up to start your day. By the time you’re done with your morning workout, shower, and the rest of your routine, the back pain is gone – until the next day, of course, when it starts again.
You might think that you’re just getting old(er). You might think that the back pain comes from too much time sitting in an office chair. You might not think about the pain at all once it goes away.
But have you ever thought that maybe your mattress is responsible for the pain?
It’s a fact: old, worn-out mattresses can cause back pain.
All mattresses get old eventually, and when they do, they usually send their owners a few telltale signs that it’s time to go mattress shopping. As a mattress ages, it becomes less supportive, often starting to sag in the middle. Pressure points increase, and it’s hard to maintain proper sleeping posture. This can lead to back pain.
How can you tell if your mattress is behind your back pain?
Back pain is a huge medical problem – approximately 31 million Americans are suffering from it right now, and up to 80% of us will experience back problems at some point. And there are many different causes of back pain, ranging from accidents and injuries to arthritis, poor posture, and even some types of cancer. If you’re experiencing back pain, it’s not always easy to tell whether your mattress is to blame or you have another medical problem.
One of the first things you should do, of course, is to talk to your doctor. Based on your medical history, your doctor might want to order certain tests to rule out potentially serious medical problems. But if the cause isn’t an obvious medical problem, then you might want to look more closely at your mattress.
Consider the following:
• How old is your mattress? If it’s more than 8-10 years old, then it’s time for a new mattress, no matter what is ultimately causing your back pain.
• When does your back hurt? If your back tends to hurt first thing in the morning, with the pain going away relatively quickly, that’s another sign your mattress is the cause of your back pain.
• Do you wake up tossing and turning? If the discomfort won’t let you get an uninterrupted night’s sleep, then you should definitely consider a new mattress.
• Do you sleep better away from home? Waking up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed when you’re anywhere but your home sweet home is a sure sign that your mattress needs to go.
If you answered yes to one or more of the questions above, then you know it’s time to go mattress shopping. And here at Mattress One, we’re eager to help you get started. Our mattress experts can help you find the mattress that feels the most comfortable to you.
Say goodbye to creaky, achy back pain, and say hello to a new mattress! All of us here at Mattress One hope to see you soon.

You and your partner agree on so much, from the little things, like what movie to see on a Saturday night, to the big things, like what you both want in life. The only sticking point? You can’t seem to agree on a mattress, and you’re both losing sleep over it.
Relax! Here at Mattress One, we see this kind of problem all the time. We promise that having trouble finding a mattress that's comfortable for both of you doesn't mean that your relationship is doomed. It also doesn’t mean that you have to shell out for a pricey adjustable bed or make do with twin beds on opposite sides of the room, like a couple in a 1950s sitcom.
Instead, the secret to finding a great mattress for both of you is the same secret that's gotten you this far in your relationship: compromise. And we have the tools and knowledge to help you do just that.
First, find out why you can’t find a mattress that fits both of you.
Knowledge is power in many things in life, and that includes mattress-buying. The reasons why your partner wants a hard-as-a-board mattress while you prefer to feel like you're sleeping on a cloud often have to do with your sleep style. Side sleepers prefer different kinds of mattresses than back sleepers and so on. See our post on Sleep Style & Your Mattress for more details. Differences in height, weight, and body structure also play a role in determining which mattresses will feel most comfortable to which people.
Once you know why each of you prefers the kind of mattress you do, it'll be easier to narrow down your search in the hope of finding the perfect mattress.
Next, consider hybrid mattress forms.
Even if you discover that you and your partner are polar opposites in terms of sleep style and "meeting in the middle" only makes you both miserable, you still have options! For instance, a firm mattress with a pillow top could give the softness one partner craves while still providing the support the other partner needs. Memory foam toppers (especially in twin XL size) can also help one partner get softness while the other gets support. Finally, certain manufacturers of memory foam and latex foam mattresses will create mattresses that are more supportive on one side and softer on the other, allowing you and your partner to both get what you want.
If all else fails, remember this: two twins equal one king.
No, we're not talking about the plot to The Man in the Iron Mask. It’s a simple fact that if you put two twin XL mattresses together, they take up the same amount of space as a single king-sized bed. (A twin Xl mattress is 38” x 80”, while a king mattress is 76" x 80".) If your bedroom can fit a king-sized bed, this could be the way to go. Once your bed is piled with sheets, blankets, comforters and pillows, nobody will know that you and your partner are sleeping on twin mattresses – except, of course, you and your partner, both snoozing peacefully and in perfect comfort.
Stop in today!
The best way to find the perfect mattress for you and your partner is to visit Mattress One. We have hundreds of mattresses from all the best brands. And remember, with our 180-day in-home trial*, we give you plenty of time to make sure the mattress really works for both of you and send it back to us if it doesn’t. Check out our offerings today, and be sure to get ready for a great night's sleep for years to come!

One of the first things you need to determine when you're shopping for a new mattress is what type of mattress you want to buy. There are a number of different types of mattresses on the market, but two of the most popular are memory foam mattresses and innerspring mattresses. Many consumers find that they'll choose between these two for their ultimate comfort.
What are the differences between these mattresses, and which is right for you? Only you can answer the latter question, but we can help with the former! Keep reading to learn more about memory foam mattresses, innerspring mattresses, and the pros and cons of each type.
What Are Memory Foam Mattresses?
Foam mattresses are constructed using certain types of memory foam to provide a supportive yet comfortable surface. There are a number of different types of foam mattresses, including memory foam (viscoelastic), polyurethane, and gel. These types of mattresses vary widely in terms of how they are constructed and the type of support, feel, and heat properties they offer.
Foam Mattress Pros
First, let's talk comfort. Many people find that since memory foam mattresses conform to the body, they produce the most comfortable night's sleep. They reduce pressure points, keep the spine in proper alignment, and can even reduce lower back pain over time. Foam mattresses can also be constructed with hypoallergenic materials, and they don't collect as many dust mites, so people with allergies or respiratory problems might find they're able to breathe more easily. Finally, memory foam mattresses are very quiet and don't transfer motion between partners.
Foam Mattress Cons
Of course, no mattress is perfect, and foam mattresses have their downsides. Foam mattresses can be unusually sensitive to climate, becoming softer in warm climates and harder in cold ones. They can also retain heat more than a traditional mattress would. The mattresses can be very heavy, though on the plus side, you don't need to flip them. Lastly, foam mattresses can often be one of the more expensive options on the market, which turns many consumers off.
What Are Innerspring Mattresses?
An innerspring mattress is often known as a traditional mattress. These mattresses use a number of steel springs to provide support for sleepers. There are many different types of innerspring mattresses, and their construction varies widely. Some have individually wrapped pocket-coil springs, while others have all the springs connected in a single unit. Innerspring mattresses also vary in the type of upholstery, padding, and other materials they use to provide comfort to the sleeper.
Innerspring Mattress Pros
Let's start with the obvious: innerspring mattresses are what most people think of when they think of a mattress, so innerspring mattresses are available just about everywhere. There are tons of options on the market, and the product is well-established. Consumers can choose the firmness that fits them best. Innerspring mattresses also tend to be less expensive than other types, although there are certainly pricier options out there if you want the highest-quality mattress money can buy.
Innerspring Mattress Cons
Even the tried-and-true innerspring mattresses have their cons. First of all, innerspring mattresses often transfer motion. If you or your partner is a restless sleeper, the other person will feel every toss and turn. The steel coils can become squeaky as time goes on, and the material supported by the coils can start to sag. Because of this, innerspring mattresses tend not to last as long – and flipping the mattress to improve longevity doesn't work with more recent models, since many modern innerspring models are built in specific layers in order to combat sagging.

The size of mattress you pick will depend on the size of the room it’ll be placed in and how many people will be sleeping on it. But in order to make the best decision, you’ll want to know the exact dimensions you’ll be working with, as well as the pros and cons of each mattress size. That’s why we’ve created this handy guide to mattress sizes. We want to make sure that the next time you come into our store, you’ll be armed with the right information.
Learn more about the different sizes below, and be sure to give us a call or just stop by if you need any help finding the right size mattress for your home.
Dimensions: 38” x 75”
Where to Use: Fit for a single sleeper, twin beds are perfect for kids’ rooms, especially young kids who have just outgrown their cribs. The compact size makes it easy for even a small room to feel big (especially when paired with a young child’s imagination). Parents also like these mattresses because they can be used on daybeds and bunk beds, giving them more options in tight spaces.
Dimensions: 38” x 80”
Where to Use: Like a regular twin mattress, a twin XL is really only big enough to sleep one. However, those five extra inches of legroom can come in quite handy for adults and taller adolescents! College dormitories also tend to favor these mattresses, as they’re long enough for even the lankiest basketball players but still narrow enough to fit in the dorm.
Dimensions: 53” x 75”
Where to Use: A full bed is a bit wider than a twin, but it’s really quite a squeeze for two. Most couples wouldn’t like sleeping on a full bed night after night, unless space is really tight. The lack of legroom can also cramp many adults’ style. Because of this, full beds are best recommended for children and teenagers. They can also be a great option for guest rooms.
Dimensions: 60” x 80”
Where to Use: Plenty wide for two and long enough for even the tallest, queen beds are a great compromise mattress for couples with relatively small bedrooms. Because queen beds are relatively narrow, it’s easier to squeeze two nightstands, a dresser, or other furniture into the bedroom, making the most out of every inch of space. Single sleepers also love queen beds, as it gives them plenty of space to stretch out at night while not cramping their style during the day.
Dimensions: 76” x 80”
Where to Use: When partners want lots of space to stretch out at night, the king bed is the right pick! King beds are especially great in hot, sticky climates, as both partners can retreat to their end of the bed in order to savor those blessed last cool inches of the mattress. Of course, couples who choose a mattress this big need to have a big bedroom. Otherwise, they might have to make compromises on their other bedroom furniture.
Dimensions: 72” x 84”
Where to Use: As you might guess, the California king is especially popular in the state of California. It’s actually slightly smaller than the regular king bed in terms of total area, but most couples don’t really notice the lack of space. This mattress size is great for bedrooms that are longer than they are wide and for very tall sleepers. California king sleepers just need to be careful when selecting bedding, as regular king size sheets and blankets won’t fit on this mattress.

Ultra-plush, firm, innerspring, hybrid – the minute you step inside a mattress store, you're bombarded with terms you may have never heard before. How are you supposed to find the right mattress for your needs when you and the sales associate don't even seem to be speaking the same language?
Worry not! We've assembled this handy list of common terms used to describe mattress comfort and construction. The next time you go mattress shopping, you can walk through the store with confidence. Now you'll know exactly what you’re talking about, which will help you find exactly what you need!
Ultra Plush Soft: This is the softest type of mattress available. It's truly like sleeping on a cloud! Often these mattresses even come with pillowtops (an extra layer of fluffy padding) to make them even softer.
Plush Soft: These mattresses offer relaxing softness with just the right amount of support. Sometimes they too can come with pillowtops for added relaxation.
Cushion Firm: This mattress is great for someone who knows they need support but loves the added comfort of a soft mattress. Cushion firm mattresses are true middle-of-the-road mattresses, which also make them a great choice for couples with divergent sleeping needs and styles.
Firm: If you want to feel like you're floating on top of the mattress rather than sinking into it, a firm mattress is for you! These mattresses offer great support, and sleepers won’t sink too far into them.
Ultra Firm: These mattresses are about as firm as it gets. When you're sleeping on an ultra firm mattress, you can forget about sinking deep into the mattress. These mattresses are great for people who need a lot of support as they sleep.
Traditional Innerspring: A traditional innerspring mattress is made of tightly coiled steel springs covered in layers of soft fabric and padding. The springs provide support and the bouncy feel you get when first sitting or lying on the mattress.
Individual Pocketed Coils: Pocketed coils start with traditional steel springs, but wrap each spring in its own fabric coil. This helps to reduce motion transfer across the bed – great if your partner is a restless sleeper or has to get up earlier than you do.
Hybrid: Most mattresses can be placed in one of two categories: foam mattresses or innerspring mattresses. Hybrid mattresses combine both materials. They’re usually constructed with a steel support system with some type of foam used as an added comfort system.
Memory Foam: Memory foam mattresses are constructed from special viscoelastic foam. This foam conforms to your body as you sleep, cradling you and providing support in all the right places. Just like traditional innerspring mattresses, though, they can come in different firmnesses for different styles of sleepers.
Gel Foam: Gel foam mattresses make use of a gel in the construction of the mattress, either in the support system or the upholstery layers (or both). This gel can be used to provide extra support, create a softer feel, or make the mattress cooler to sleep on.

In order to get a good night’s sleep, you need to make sure that the surface you’re sleeping on is up to the challenge. As mattresses get older, they become less supportive and comfortable. A decrease in comfort can degrade the quality of your sleep, which is the last thing you want or need!
Thankfully, there are a few telltale signs that your mattress is reaching the end of its useable life. We’ve assembled a list of the top five signs of mattress failure. Keep an eye out for these signs so you can replace that mattress before your sleep starts to suffer.
This is the first criteria to keep in mind as you’re considering whether to invest in a new mattress. Most mattresses last seven to ten years. If your mattress is older than that, then it’s definitely time for a new one. Even if you think that your sleep is restful and comfortable, it might not be. You simply might have gotten used to not sleeping comfortably.
When you wake up, do you experience more aches and pains than you felt when you fell asleep? It might not just be because you’re getting older – your mattress may be at fault! As mattresses age, they lose their ability to provide proper support. If your body is sagging or if innerspring coils are poking you as you sleep, you’re obviously going to wake up sore.
Even if your early morning aches and pains are related to your age or a medical condition, it still might make sense to look into a new mattress. As your body changes, the amount and type of support you need while sleeping changes, too. Getting a new mattress can be a wise investment in your health.
Do you toss and turn throughout the night, waking up frequently to switch positions? Do you sleep in hotels or as a guest in other people’s homes and wake up amazed at how easily you slept? These are signs that your mattress is no longer working for you, making it time for a new one. Your own mattress should be your most comfortable sleeping surface. After all, you spent about a third of your life in it!
As your mattress ages, it’ll start showing signs that it’s ready to be put out to pasture. If you see sagging spots or lumps in the mattress padding, it’s time to go mattress shopping. Your mattress is starting to wear out and break down. The sooner you get a new, comfortable mattress, the sooner you’ll be able to enjoy a restful night’s sleep.
No, we’re not suggesting that you become allergic to your mattress as time goes on. But over the years, your mattress does pick up allergens like dust mites, mold, and mildew – no matter how clean you keep your bedroom. If you are allergic to these substances, going near your mattress can make you miserable, which is the last thing you want! It’s best to replace that mattress as soon as you notice a consistent problem, so you can sleep better and breathe easily.
Let Us Help!
If your body or your mattress is signaling that it’s time for a change, let the experts at Mattress One help you find a new mattress to fall in love with. Thanks to our huge selection, it’s easy for you to find the right mattress for your comfort needs. Our attentive sales staff will help walk you through the process and introduce you to our inventory. With our help, it won’t be long before you’re sleeping like a baby on your brand new mattress.

When discussing comfort levels you often hear a great deal about innerspring mattresses and foam mattresses. However, it's not always clear if there is a difference between both options. To answer your question though, yes, there is a big difference!
First, understand that the innerspring mattresses are known in the industry as affordable beds—budget products that are well-liked because they are reasonably comfortable and cheap by comparison to other technologies.
Spring Mattress Technology
Spring mattresses are comfy when you first sit or lie on them, and understandably so, since they are firm to the touch. However, one negative about them is that they do not have pressure point relief. The durability is made possible by a number of springs, which will push back against you as you lie down. They will all use the same degree of force. Here's the problem though: your body does not “push” evenly, and so there's no way to guarantee proper support.
Unfortunately ill-effects are reported after a lifetime of sleeping on cheap beds; sometimes poor blood circulation and pain in a person's joints. Worse yet, many of these beds, especially by off-brand name companies, are built so cheaply that they lose over 15% of their full support in just one year.
Memory Foam Mattress Technology
What about the memory foam mattress? These products are called memory bedding, because they “learn” your body shape and thus will distribute the weight of your body evenly. In analogy, it's like having a million different springs providing the “push” you want. This technology allows pressure point reduction, and it's only available in memory foam beds.
Most consumers who now sleep on memory foam mattresses report better sleep, fuller days and more relaxed mornings as they wake up. Here's an interesting fact for you: as far as pressure goes, it takes 32mmHg in order to relieve pressure in the average human being. Most innerspring beds cannot reach this standard.

If you suffer from backaches and pains in the morning, know that you are not alone. Millions of people struggle with this same problem, and work, stress, and age are not the only problems. Instead of just trying to ignore the pain and aches and go about your day while you are in anguish, consider how your mattress is contributing to your problem. You could potentially solve all of our morning aches by simply replacing your mattress with one that can support you properly.
Your mattress may not only be causing you to experience aches in the morning, but it can also lead to more painful problems and decreased mobility if you do not address the issue. If you are sleeping on an uncomfortable, saggy, poor quality mattress, it is likely that your spine is not aligned throughout the night, and your mattress can be causing you to develop poor posture and increasingly worsened body alignment. An uncomfortable mattress can also of course lead to inadequate sleep, which can lead to a series of serious health problems.
So, how do you know which mattress will solve your problem? While everyone’s body reacts differently to different mattresses, most find that a mattress with medium firmness typically provides relief from morning aches. The goal is to find a mattress that will support the body, and all of the pressure points and joints, while still allowing your hips and shoulders to sink in just enough for the spine to align. A great way to test a mattress is to lie down on your side to see just how much you sink into the mattress and if your spine is supported and straight.
The materials of the mattress can also have a major impact on the occurrence of morning aches and pains. Mattresses made of premium materials such as latex and memory phone have shown to be much more effective than most of their spring and coil counterparts. The higher quality materials, such as memory foam, allow for the mattress to frame the body and provide unique and customized support.
When replacing your mattress in order to alleviate your aches and pains, it is always important to test the mattress in person instead of relying on a review or recommendation. It is important for you to see first hand if you personally find the mattress to be supportive and comfortable for your body type.

We sleep in order to restore, rejuvenate, and prepare our bodies and minds for the day ahead. Therefore, it would be devastating to learn that your bed is causing you to have an allergic reaction. Your bed should be your safe haven, but if you have the wrong mattress, it could be causing you to itch, sneeze, toss and turn when you should be sleeping.
Many people are allergic to dust mites, and the allergen that can be worsened with the wrong mattress. Before you start to squirm at the thought of dust mites being in your bed, the mites themselves are not necessarily the problem. The dust in your room, and in your mattress, can be largely contaminated with dust mite feces, which is generally the primary cause of the allergic reaction.
How is your mattress to blame?
This depends on the type of mattress you have. If you sleep on a coil or spring mattress, this can be very bad news for your allergy system. These mattresses are designed to have an inner spring structure; this means that within the mattress itself there are cavities in order to accommodate the springs and coils.
Over time, as you sleep on the mattress, these cavities can become even larger. These spaces within your mattress will become a natural place for skin cells, dust, and dust mite feces to accumulate. Due to humidity from your body heat, mold and mildew can also form in these cavities, which can also cause an allergic reaction.
Which mattress should you choose?
So, if the extremely common inner spring mattresses are so bad for allergies, which type is best? The answer is a solid memory foam or latex mattress. The problem with an inner spring mattress is that it has that inner cavity, which becomes a convenient spot for your allergens to accumulate. Memory foam mattresses do not have any type of cavities or open cores where this can happen, making them much more favorable for allergy sufferers.
Along with a solid mattress, you can also reduce your allergy symptoms with the help of anti-allergy bedding. When choosing bedding for your mattress, it is best to choose materials that are non-porous, fits the mattress well, and is easy to remove and wash frequently. With high-quality bedding and a great mattress, you will finally be able to sleep long and easy.

With the enormous selection of mattresses for sale at local retail shops, department stores, and online, sometimes it feels like an impossible task to choose the best mattress. Every mattress from varying companies offers their own unique advantages and benefits to providing a good night’s sleep. Making a choice from box style, coils, memory foam, adjustable beds, and selectable numbers tend to muddy the waters in making a good decision on something the individual will lie on for the next 10 years.
TempurPedic has quickly taken over as the leader in the memory foam mattress industry because of its pioneering efforts and advancements in its technology. However, even in their selections, they have varying models that all provide their own levels of support and comfort. While they all share commonalities, each one is unique. Their differences include:
TempurPedic is known for their line of quality high density mattresses and their patented body conforming technology. Anyone of their products will certainly deliver your best night sleep ever.
