When it comes to comfort, one size doesn’t fit all. And when it comes to sleep preference, one bed doesn’t fit all! In a time where many new mattress companies are marketing and selling one (and only one) type of bed, it’s important to remember why having multiple mattress options matters. Serta offers a variety of mattress types and feels because comfort is personal. What works for one person won’t work everyone. Here’s why:

1. Comfort is subjective.

Having different mattress options allows you to create a completely customized bedroom experience. And who doesn’t like that? Personal preference is hard to predict. Some can only sleep soundly on an extra-firm innerspring mattress while others need a super-soft memory foam mattress. Serta’s
premium mattresses come in a variety of feels and types to suit all mattress construction and comfort preferences.

2. Your body’s individual needs matter.

Age, health and physical condition play a role in the type of mattress that works best for you. For example, our adjustable foundations allow you to raise the head of the bed when paired with a compatible mattress, which can ease back pain and improve circulation.

Restful sleep is critical to your overall health. And a well-constructed mattress, whether it’s memory foam or a hybrid, will intelligently respond to your body’s individual needs.

3. Who sleeps on the mattress determines which one works best.

If you’re buying a mattress that you and a partner will share, you have multiple points of view to consider. Because Serta offers so many different mattresses, couples with different comfort preferences can find something in the middle.

4. Sleeping position makes a difference.

Do you sleep on your stomach, your back or your side? Your preferred sleeping position will affect the type of mattress you enjoy spending eight hours on. A side sleeper, for instance, might require a softer mattress top than a back sleeper.

5. An adjustable foundation requires a compatible mattress.

Our adjustable foundations accommodate different bed positions by giving you the ability to raise the head and foot of your bed. Raising the head of the bed, for example, allows you to spend time on your laptop more comfortably. However, not all mattresses are compatible with adjustable foundations. The right match is critical to the functionality of your bed base.

6. Some people need a focus on temperature regulation.

If your body temperature runs hot, you might be accustomed to waking up sweaty in the middle of the night. Serta offers exclusive temperature-regulating technologies in its premium mattresses, including Serta iComfort® and Perfect Sleeper® models, to keep you comfortable all night long. If you toss and turn a lot, you’ll want to consider certain mattress attributes, like foam. Foam helps absorb movement and minimizes disturbance to your partner when you move around at night.

7. Mattress size matters.

Mattresses come in four standard sizes for a reason. Not everyone needs a king bed, but if you and partner share a bed with the family pet, you probably don’t want to squeeze onto a queen mattress.

Serta proudly offers a wide variety of mattresses to accommodate the many types of sleepers, each with a unique comfort preference. In fact, the results from our online mattress selector, a guide to your best night’s sleep in seven steps, show that the 10 most recommended mattresses include pillow top, plush, firm, and extra firm models—some featuring innerspring and others that are all foam. That’s quite a variety of comfort preferences!
