Angie's List: 3 Mattress Myths

Updated:

Your bed is one of the places where you spend the most time, so when you buy a new mattress, you want to make sure it's good.

The experts at Angie's List have some tips on how to choose the best mattress for you.

Myth #1: Flipping a mattress every so often keeps it in better shape.
     
Angie's List says no. Most new mattresses these days are one-sided and shouldn't be flipped.

"Right now, we see a lot of pillow tops. Those are becoming a lot more popular. And also foam mattresses--something that is all foam as opposed to having an inner spring," says Lauren Taylor, Mattress Company President.

Myth #2: You have to replace a mattress every eight years.

"Typically your body will tell you when it's time," Taylor says. "If you wake up and you don't feel like you're getting a good quality sleep at night, sometimes it's a matter of visiting someone's home or going to a hotel and figuring out that you don't sleep as well at home as you should."
    
Myth #3: Ripping off that tag will land you in jail.

"The warning on a mattress tag can be pretty daunting, but the truth is once you buy the mattress and you want to remove the tag, you can," says Angie Hicks, founder of Angie's List. "Keep in mind, a lot of times that tag is necessary for the warranty to stay intact."

Angie's List says when you're in the mattress store, take your time choosing.  Lie down on the bed for at least ten minutes so you get a feel for it.
