Sleeping Tips For A Better Mattress


IMPROVED R.E.M (Rapid Eye Movement)

Finding the best mattress is not always easy, that is why we have so many mattresses to choose from. Here at Sherri’s Mattresses, We help you narrow it down so that you can find the best mattress that fits your needs.

The best mattress all around is a latex mattress, however, the price that goes with it does not make it the best mattress for everyone. Mattress Sales are also a determining factor, but if you spend $500 on a mattress that is uncomfortable for you, you have just wasted $500 dollars.  The “Huge Savings” or “Big Sale” just does not mean a thing if you are not comfortable, so we have picked not so attractive locations so we can have low overhead to save you money! Our Prices will be lower than sale prices, they will be internet pricing.

LATEX Mattress

LATEX IS A COMBINATION OF COILS, HYBRID, AND MEMORY FOAM / GEL COMBINED. Latex is an active sleep system, it reacts to every move you make with support. Latex supports you as opposed to contours. Latex returns all the energy you give it unlike poly foam and it works for every body shape and size. Latex Mattress’s hypoallergenic materials support a comfortable sleep posture and eliminates pressure points. It has the highest customer satisfaction.

COILS Mattress

With mattresses, the term “support” refers to the aspects of the bed that push back in order to hold your spine in position while you sleep. Coils Spirals of wires that form the supportive core of an Innerspring Mattress or Foundation. Specific coil designs include Bonnell, Offset, Marshall, and Continuous, each of which comes in various sizes and gauges, also known as coil springs.

Bonnell Coil
The original and standard innerspring mattress coil design is characterized by hourglass-shaped springs. Today, it is used primarily in lower-priced beds. See our Coil Guide to learn more about the various types of mattress coils and how to compare them.

Offset Coil
Type of innerspring mattress coil that has an hourglass shape similar to a Bonnell Coil, but with flattened edges at the top and the bottom of the coil to create better hinging action. Relative to Bonnell Coils.

Offset Coils
Conforms more to your body, makes less noise, and are typically found in more expensive mattresses. See our Coil Guide to learn more about the various types of mattress coils and how to compare them.

Continuous Coil
An innerspring mattress coil design where each row of coils is constructed from a single wire shaped into a series of “S”-shaped ringlets. The concept behind this design is that by attaching each coil to its neighbors, the innerspring unit will have improved strength, stability, and durability. See our Coil Guide to learn more about the various types of mattress coils and how to compare them.

Individually Wrapped Coil System
Our individually wrapped coil system cradles every inch of your body, reducing pressure points and providing support where you need it most. Since there is no metal touching metal in this type of coil system, you have a quiet night’s sleep. And if you move, your partner doesn’t feel a thing.

HYBRID Mattress

Hybrid Mattress: A mattress that combines two different types of support technologies such as memory foam and pocketed coil. Sometimes it is high-density foam with latex or memory foam on top. It is a less expensive way to give you the comfort of a really expensive bed. However, probably not as durable.


Memory Foam and Gel Foam Memory Foam is a conforming material.  Similar to latex, but it is a polyurethane foam. Memory foam material has both viscous and elastic properties which make it an ideal material comfort in a mattress or other furniture products.


Your Size Does Matter

Mattress Comfort Weight plays a huge role in how a mattress supports you and needs to be considered in the selection process. Size does matter. Studies reveal that a healthy person moves, tosses, and turns all night long. There are 7 mattress sizes to choose from to best suit your body size: Mattress Sizes Sleeping with a partner, room size, lifestyle, comfort preferences, body size, and budget are all factors that should be taken into account before deciding on a mattress size. It is recommended to choose a bed that is at least 4-5 inches longer than you and your partner as well as wide enough so you can sleep comfortably without disturbing your partner. SEE MATTRESS SIZES CHART!

1. Petite People: If you are thinner or lighter than average, you will probably prefer a softer bed. This is because your lack of weight reduces contouring, and you may also have less natural padding creating pressure points.
2. Heavier People: If you weigh over 200 lbs, you may prefer mattresses that have deeper comfort layers. Your body will have more downward pressure and you will be more comfortable with greater contouring from the mattress. (a website that analyzes reviews) says that people over 200 pounds tend to rate memory foam and latex as most comfortable. They also find that people 250-300 lbs are most comfortable on beds at least 12 inches thick, while people 300-450 lbs prefer mattresses at least 14 inches thick.
3. Taller People: If you are less than 6 feet tall, Twin XL, Queen, and King Mattresses should work perfectly fine for you. If you are 6 foot to 6 foot 4 inches tall, a California King mattress may be ideal, since it is 4 inches longer than standard kings (but also 4 inches slimmer). Some mattress companies can also custom make mattresses if you need even greater length to get comfortable.

For you stomach sleepers, firm to medium mattresses provide the perfect blend of comfort and support. Stomach sleeping places pressure on sensitive areas like your chest, face, and elbows. A mattress that is too soft can allow your lower back to sag downward or place added tension on your neck. But, a mattress that is too firm can also cause pain and pressure points. Your ideal mattress is in the medium-firm range, with a thin but supportive comfort layer. Your back shouldn’t feel strained or tense when you lie down. It may also be helpful to place a pillow beneath your hips to prevent your lower back from sinking too far.
Firm mattresses offer the least surface “give” and would be considered harder in feel to the other mattress surfaces. If you like a solid feel rather than soft, firm may be your choice.
Plush mattresses offer more surface “give” and provide a softer surface comfort. This is a happy balance between firm and pillow top
