Simply the Best Mattress Store in Southern California

Nothing lasts forever, and mattresses are no exception. Even what was once a first quality, top of the line sleep system will eventually need replacing. In too many instances, the time to replace that old saggy and worn mattress is long overdue. That means it no longer provides the level of support that’s needed for a restful night’s sleep so important for maintaining good physical condition and mental well-being.

When to Upgrade your Mattress

Most sleep experts recommend that mattresses be replaced at least every 8 to 10 years to lessen the risk of restless sleep and sleep-deprived mood swings that can lead to depression and health issues including cardiovascular problems, kidney disease and obesity. Here are a few things to consider to help you determine if it’s time to replace your mattress:

  • How Old is the Mattress You’re Now Sleeping On? Most mattresses have a useful life of 5 to 10 years, although the lifespan can vary, depending upon the mattress brand and model, construction type, the sleeper’s body size and weight and how often it’s turned or rotated. It’s highly likely that if your mattress is 10 or more years old, it’s definitely time to upgrade in order to sleep soundly once again. Start by visiting one of Sit ‘n Sleeps 38 conveniently located Southern California outlets.
  • Do You Awaken in the Morning Aching or Feeling Tired ? Waking up with back, neck or shoulder pain probably results from your mattress no longer providing the support your body needs. The result is tossing and turning night after night, making it virtually impossible to get enough uninterrupted sleep to awaken relaxed, refreshed and ready to take on the day.
  • Does Your Present Mattress Sag, Feel Lumpy or Show Signs of Physical Wear? Even the very best of mattresses will show signs of wear after years of use. A mattress that droops in the middle, is lumpy in some areas or is beginning to shows signs of physical deterioration in others definitely needs replacing.
  • Do Other Beds Feel More Comfortable by Comparison? If you frequently sleep on the couch or in the guest room, or if you find sleeping in hotel rooms or a friend’s house to be more comfortable than your own bed, it’s definitely time to start shopping for a new mattress.

For more tips on when it's time to replace a mattress, visit our Blog, speak with one of our Sleep Consultants by calling us toll free at 1-800-908-0354 or take this short, informative quiz.

Now that you’ve decided it’s time for a new mattress, you’ll need to determine the mattress size and type that’s best for your unique situation.

Mattress Sizes

People come in different weights, shapes and sizes, so there’s no such thing as a one size fits all mattress. Mattresses come in various sizes ranging from Twin to California King. Here’s an overview of each:

Twin mattresses are the smallest of all standard mattress sizes. Measuring approximately 38” wide by 75” long, twin mattresses have plenty of room for a child or smaller adult to sleep comfortably. Twin mattresses can be used with bunk beds, trundle beds, day beds and hideaways. Their size makes twin mattresses especially well-suited for small rooms where space is at a premium.

Twin XL Mattresses are the same width as Twin mattresses, but are 5” longer, which leaves room for a child to grow without the mattress needing to be replaced. The extra length also has plenty of room for a slightly taller than average adult to sleep comfortably. As with Twin mattresses, their small footprint make Twin XL mattresses a good choice for smaller bedrooms.

Full Mattresses, which measure 53” wide by 75” long, are the same length as a Twin mattress, but are a full 15” wider. Also called Double Mattresses, Full mattresses are a good choice for those who want something larger than a Twin, but don’t need the extra space of a King or Queen. It’s possible for 2 people to sleep on a Full mattress, although keep in mind there’s only slightly more than two feet of sleeping space for each person. Full size mattresses will fit comfortably in bedrooms measuring 9.5 feet by 10.5 feet or larger.

Full XL Mattresses, as with Twin mattresses, are available in a longer version suitable for taller people. Full XL mattresses are the same 53” width as a Full mattress, but are 5” longer. They’re a good choice for taller people who don’t need the extra sleeping space of a Queen, but want more room than a twin or Twin XL offers.

Queen Mattresses are by far the most popular mattress type available. Measuring 60” wide by 80” long, there’s plenty of room for one or two people to sleep comfortably, while taking up only slightly more floor space than a Full bed and mattress. Queens are also a popular choice for use in guest rooms.

King Mattresses are a full 16” wider than a Queen. Kings have plenty of room for larger bodied sleepers, and are great for people who like to spread out while they sleep. Measuring 76” x 80”, two people sleeping on a King mattress will each have the same sleeping space as if each were sleeping on a Twin XL. King mattresses are appropriate for use in bedrooms measuring 10 feet x12.5 feet or larger.

California King Mattresses are 4” narrower than a standard King size mattress, but are also 4” longer. Also called a Western mattress, a California King is a good choice for couples, one or both of whom are  tall enough to need the extra length. When the length is more important than width, a California King is the right choice.

Check Sit ‘n Sleep’s website Blog More for information on choosing the right size mattress.

Mattress Comfort Levels

All Mattresses sizes come in four basic comfort levels, which are Firm, Cushion Firm, Plush and Ultra Plush:

People with back or neck problems tend to prefer Firm mattresses because they help alleviate lower back pain by keeping the spine properly aligned and relaxing the back muscles. Because firm mattresses evenly support the full body, stomach sleepers also tend to prefer firm mattresses. A good example of a firm mattress is the Tempur-Contour Elite.

Cushion Firm mattresses, which are also known as “pillow tops”, are firm mattresses topped with a layer of soft, cushioned material. Although Cushion Firm mattresses are softer than firm mattresses, they offer more support than a plush mattress. Cushion Firm Mattresses like the  Aireloom Coachella are considered by many people to be just the right l blend of softness, comfort and support.

Plush mattresses bring together the best features of Firm and Cushion Firm mattresses. Featuring a cushioned upper layer that conforms perfectly to the body’s natural contours, a plush mattress such as a Sherwood Estate Plush provide support at the body’s pressure points to help ensure a good night’s sleep. People who normally sleep on their sides or backs often prefer the combination of softness and support found in a Plush mattress.

Ultra Plush Mattresses are a perfect blend of softness, comfort and support. Also called “Super Plush” or “Extra Plush”, Ultra Plush Mattresses like the  Tempur-Cloud Supreme Breeze offer sleepers the maximum in softness and luxury. Because they keep the spine properly aligned while hips and shoulders are gently cushioned by the soft upper layer, people who prefer to sleep on their sides often choose Ultra Plush mattresses

The easiest way to find out which comfort level is best for your body type, weight and shape is to stop by a Sit ‘n Sleep Mattress Superstore and spend some time trying them all.

Buying Your New Mattress

Sit ‘n Sleep carries a full line of mattresses in various sizes and comfort levels from all major manufacturers, including  Tempur-Pedic, Sealy and Stearns & Foster.
