The Best Mattress Stores in Boston MA Are the Ones Proven Safe To Buy From

The state of Massachusetts does not require mattress stores in Boston MA to qualify for a state license for mattress sales, thus there is no state standard for competency among mattress dealers.

So there's no guarantee that any particular mattress store in Boston MA is even competent, is doing business ethically, delivering value, or satisfying customers.

This makes it all the more significant that all mattress stores in Boston MA that bear The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have been cleared by our research staff as passing all the requirements for Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 status such as survey phone calls to previous customers to verify high satisfaction for mattress sales, best business practices, sufficient length of time in business, good complaint record, and more.

What To Look For When Buying A Mattress

The biggest considerations are to how well the mattress supports you and keeps you in normal alignment so you don't wake with back pain, and comfort, so that you're not forced to move around all night resulting in a bad night's sleep.   With support, a too firm mattress will not yield enough to your body's curves, forcing your spine out of its natural alignment. A too soft mattress can create the same result the same way lying in a hammock does.  With comfort, a too firm mattress or one badly constructed can cause pressure points on places of your body, cutting off circulation.

Additional considerations include:

Motion transfer (for those sleeping with a partner)
To prevent being woken when a sleeping partner moves, you want a mattress without much motion transfer. That can be accomplished in different ways. For innerspring mattresses, coil springs that are not connected to each other and are individually wrapped will have less motion transfer than less expensive coils that are interlinked. Memory foam mattress or latex mattresses can have less motion transfer than innerspring mattresses.

Temperature neutrality
A mattress that gets too warm or stays too cold can prevent you from sleeping well. Preventing the mattress from being too much warmer or colder than your body can be achieved by construction that uses ventilation, and/or advanced foams. Cheap memory foam mattresses have the biggest risk of getting too warm.

Edge support
Many mattress brands cut their manufacturing costs by skimping on the inside materials around the edges of mattress on the idea that people only spend their time near the center. But if you have a habit of sleeping near the edge, or sitting on the edge frequently, then not only would poor edge support be uncomfortable but it can also cause that part of the mattress to break down and sag relatively soon.

Types of Mattresses in Boston MA

Innerspring Mattresses
The most common type of mattress in Boston MA, these contain coils of steel springs. Coil count refers to exactly how many coils are inside the mattress, with those at 420 coils or below being most suitable for sporadic use such as in a guest bedroom.  A higher coil count will provide more comfort and is more suitable for every day use, however the number of coils isn't always the only factor since another is how thick the steel of each coil is, also how many turns each coil has. So it's possible for a 800 coil mattress to have thicker coil steel and/more coil turns than a 900 coil mattress and be more comfortable than the higher coil count mattress.

Memory Foam Mattresses
Memory foam is a slow-response type of foam that takes longer to return to its normal position when you remove the weight from it.  Tempurpedic is a well known brand of this mattress type. Memory foam shouldn't be confused with the regular foam, often called poly foam, that can be found in the top layers of an innerspring mattress, the cheapest of which can break down (lose its rebounding property) after repeated use.

Latex Mattresses
Latex mattress come in two kinds of latex, Dunlop latex or Talalay latex (or a combination of both). Both types of latex are made from rubber sap. Latex mattresses can be pricey but can also last decades and are appreciated for being anti-bacterial and anti-dust mite since mites do not thrive in natural latex.
Some mattresses are latex hybrids, having only a top layer of the most expensive material, the latex, over a memory foam or innerspring mattress, and so can be less costly (and lighter) than a 100% latex mattress.

Latex toppers can also be purchased separately, a 1", 2" or some other thickness of latex to place on top of an existing mattress.

Spring Air Mattresses
Air mattresses use chambers inflated with air instead of spring coils, and offer the ability to make an adjustible bed, so that the user can adjust one side to be firmer or softer than the other side in order to satisfy two sleeping partners independently. The Sleep Number bed by Select Comfort is a well known brand in this category.

How to Buy New Mattresses in Boston MA

Try The Mattress Before Buying

Try lying on the mattress in different positions, not just on your back, and feel free to lie on the mattress for as long as 10 to 15 minutes to get a better idea of the support, possible pressure points, and temperature neutrality of the new mattress.

If you're buying the mattress online without the ability to try it first, make sure you understand the online mattress retailer's return policy (if any). Online mattress sales that offer an extended trial period can cut down on the liklihood of disappointment, but make sure you are comfortable with what your obligation might be in order to get the matteress returned.

Price Match Guarantee?

Does the mattress store guarantee to match a lower price of the same mattress being sold at another local mattress store in Boston MA, or being sold online?

Is There A Sale Coming Up?

Will the store sell the new mattress you want at a lower price sometime in the near future as part of a scheduled sale or promotion?

Consider The Need For The Platform (Box Spring)

The platform that goes underneath the mattress, which some people mistakenly call a box spring, usually doesn't have springs in it anymore. These days, it is typically just a simple wood frame, with one box or platform being pretty much the same as any other, except for being in a fabric that matches the new mattress when purchased as a set. Considering that the box or platform is rarely visible, especially once bed covers are on, you might save by reusing your existing box or platform and buying only a new mattress.

Price Is Not The Only Factor

If you're inclined to do price comparisons between mattress stores in Boston MA, make sure you've tallied all the costs, such as the mattress delivery fee and if the mattress store will charge you to remove your old mattress or not.   

Next, bear in mind that when comparing price between different models of new mattresses, that the most expensive is not necessarily the best. Like with other retail goods, some mattresses have a premium price only because the maker knows some consumers like to buy high end, believing it guarantees more value. Next, price comparisons between different models, even among the same maker can be difficult because many times a mattress is made specific to that retailer, such as for ones sold in department stores, and there might not be an exact match of that mattress in terms of its actual material and construction.

Lastly, weigh any price difference against possible differences in return policy (and restocking fee), or in the warranty. Saving a couple of hundred dollars is no bargain if you end up unhappy with a mattress that is uncomfortable and compromises your sleep and your health over months and years.
