Following an article published by ABC in San Francisco, which examines mattress quality among top brands, Online Bed Quilt reminds consumers that mattress quality has a lot to do with body type.

On March 11, mattress store Online Bed Quilt responds to an article published by ABC in San Francisco, which analyzes the quality of mattresses from top brands.

According to ABC, a new survey conducted by Consumer Reports discovered that one in five people are unhappy with their mattresses. Because of these results, Consumer Reports decided to test out some of the best foam and innerspring mattresses in the industry, ranging from less than $500 to about $2,000.

Focusing on body support when lying on test beds, Testers recorded “how well each mattress maintains that curve when sleeping on your back,” reports ABC. Testers also measured the comfort levels when sleeping on their side and how firm the mattresses were. Research found that many mattresses were not as firm as they claimed to be, reports ABC.

Justin Maas, a representative from mattress store, Online Bed Quilt, says the study did a thorough job at examining mattress quality, but comfort usually depends on body type. “Everyone’s body is different,” he says. “A thin person who tested a mattress might have felt that their spine was perfectly aligned. Someone more heavyset however, could have a completely different reaction. It all depends on body type, so it’s important to test out each mattress yourself.”

As part of the in-depth examination, Consumer Reports also inspected the contents of each mattress. They cut open mattresses to take a look at their construction. In the article, Chris Regan of Consumer Reports said, “Higher-priced frills like additional coils or fancier fabrics really don’t guarantee a better mattress.”

Maas says that it’s always important to look at how the mattresses are made to judge what materials are most comfortable and supportive. “Some people like memory foam and some people like spring mattresses,” he says. “Always inquire about how mattresses are made and if they have good ratings.”
