Back in the day, shopping for a mattress meant hours of testing (by awkwardly lying on each one) and talking with aggressive sales people in badly-lit showrooms. Budget was always a concern (is it really worth it to shell out an extra $300 for bells and whistles that don’t make any sense?). Needless to say, it could sometimes be an overwhelming and confusing process to find a mattress that was both well-made and super comfy in a span of an afternoon’s shopping.
Luckily, in the age of the “bed in a box” mattresses, it’s gotten so much easier (and infinitely more pleasant) to buy a bed. First of all, you can do it right from your laptop. Many bed companies offer free delivery to your doorstep, and at-home trial periods (available with many of the models available today), meaning you can test them out for real—in the comfort of your home no less. And direct-to-consumer pricing on many models eliminates the middleman, keeping prices lower than before.

Shopping with a partner adds another layer to the mattress-purchasing process. One of you might tend to sleep on your back, while the other is a die-hard side sleeper. Snorer? Tosser and turner? There’s a mattress for you. With all the options out there today (and there are so many), you’ll definitely be able to find model that satisfies both of your sleeping styles.
