A survey of current mattress shoppers finds that mattresses are not lasting as long as consumers would hope. 15% of mattresses fail to provide adequate comfort in one year and 40% become uncomfortable within three years.

14.75% of mattresses will not provide sufficient comfort even for a year

Based in Apex, North Carolina, the team at What's The Best Mattress gives consumers the edge needed to make the right choice. With tens of thousands of retailers selling mattresses, the choice can be difficult. According to surveys conducted by the company, the average mattress purchased by consumers does not have sustainable comfort levels. 14.75% will not provide sufficient comfort even for a year.

In addition, 26.23% of those purchasing a new mattress said within one to three years it did not provide adequate comfort. Considering that a premium mattress set should provide sufficient comfort from 10 to 12 years, consumers needed information that would help them to make the right mattress buying decision. What's The Best Mattress was founded for this reason - to provide consumers with unbiased information.

The site has grown as the process of choosing a mattress has become more difficult. With the number of choices available today, the average consumer can become overwhelmed. The buying guide provided on the site helps narrow down their needs as well as making information available on the basic choices. Many helpful and educational articles are provided from what to expect from retailers to the terminology used by the retailers.

Numbers show that only 24.59% of mattresses purchasers were still satisfied with their bed after ten years, indicating a huge percentage of 75% were not. Only 21.31% were still satisfied four to seven years after the purchase and 13.11% after seven to nine years. This demonstrates that the wrong choice was made and is likely due to the lack of correct information when shopping for the mattress.

Helping consumers make the best buying decision, What's The Best Mattress has focused on the different brands available, the top mattress companies and how to comparison shop among other aspects.
