Mattress FAQ

Your mattress plays an essential role in your quality of life and in your overall health, and it’s important to make sure it’s working in your favor.

If you’re uncomfortable at night, waking up groggy and in pain, or it’s been a while since you got your last mattress, it’s probably time for a new one. A new mattress can increase your comfort levels, sleep quality, and overall health.

People are unique, and certain brands work best for different needs. Here at Sleep First, we’re happy to be able to offer mattresses from some of the very best brands for you to choose from.

From Tempur-Pedic, to Sealy and Stearns & Foster, there is something here for every sleep need and preference. We also carry popular traditional brands, like the iconic Beautyrest Collection: Beautyrest Black, Harmony & Hybrid, Serta, Simmons and iComfort.

And don't forget the trendy online beds! You'll find Nectar Mattress, Nectar Lush, Awara Organic Latex mattress, and DreamCloud, just to name a few. 

At Sleep First you can compare top mattresses side by side to find your perfect fit. All under one roof!

Though it may be tempting to believe you and your mattress will be together forever, eventually every mattress must be replaced.

Most mattresses will need to be replaced after 7-10 years, or even sooner if you’re experiencing discomfort or disturbances during sleep, or your mattress is showing obvious signs of sagging or other wear-and-tear.

That depends! In general, there are three main things to think about when it comes time to choose a size for your mattress: how many people will be sleeping on the mattress, the size of those people, and the dimensions of the bedroom.

Bigger mattress sizes like Queens, Kings and Cal Kings are better when there are more people and/or a bigger space, while smaller sizes like twins and fulls are better for single sleepers and/or smaller spaces. Click here to learn more

Good question! A hybrid mattress is a hybridization between an old-school spring mattress and a more modern foam mattress.

Most hybrid mattresses have individually pocketed coils as well as a memory foam and/or latex top, blending luxurious comfort with good old-fashioned support. Because of this, they work well for most every type of sleeper.

This, as well as their ability to minimize motion transfer, makes them a fantastic choice for couples. Learn more about hybrid beds here

An adjustable base is a great way to increase the comfort and functionality of your bed. Essentially, it's a movable foundation that can shift the positioning of your head and legs.

Adjustable bases allow for even more comfort and support than a regular bed, particularly for sleepers that have trouble lying comfortably. Click here to learn more.

Not always. Though old school chiropractors used to swear that firm mattresses were the way to go for back support, that's not quite true.

Firmness and support are actually two different things: firmness has to do with the top layer of the mattress, whereas support has to do with the lower layers. It's very possible to have a soft mattress with lots of support.

When choosing between firm and soft, go with what’s most comfortable for you!

The best and most simple way to keep your mattress clean is by using a mattress protector.

As an added bonus, they're moisture wicking, temperature regulating, and hypo-allergenic. 

Other cleaning methods include vacuuming your mattress and airing it out near a window.

Use caution with cleaning products, as many can actually degrade your mattress and cause it to age faster.

For many people, the decision of what mattress to get doesn't just involve them-- it involves their partner, too!

The best bed for a couple is one that takes into account both people’s sleeping needs, preferences, and past experiences.

In general, the best mattress for a couple is a queen size medium feel mattress.Click here to learn more.

If you are a stomach sleeper, chances are you've heard that it’s not the most beneficial position and can be hard on your back.

But don’t worry, that doesn’t mean you need to switch it up and give up your favorite position! All you need to get the optimal nighttime support and comfort is the right mattress.

Generally speaking, the best are firmer mattresses with cooling technology and edge support.Click here to learn more and get our specific recommendations.

We’ve got you! There are those of us who snuggle into bed at night with cozy flannel pajamas, a heavy comforter and a fluffy throw blanket, and we have options for both.

If you’re a hot sleeper, we recommend theTEMPUR-Breeze° Collection, theSealy Hybrid Silver Chill Mattress or theBeautyrest Harmony Carbon Lux Mattress.

Nearly 75% of people are side sleepers, and chances are that you sleep on your side for at least part of the night.

Side sleeping is gentle on your neck, but can put excess pressure on your arms and legs, leading to soreness and impaired circulation. Because of this, side sleepers do best with softer mattresses, as softness allows for optimal circulation.

Memory foam or hybrid mattresses are good choices for side sleepers, as they offer an ideal mix of comfort and support.Click here to learn more and get our specific recommendations.

If you're a back sleeper, you're in luck! Experts generally consider back sleeping to be ideal, though only about 10% of us naturally sleep that way.

Back sleeping is excellent for your back and spinal health, as well as for proper circulation-- as long as you're sleeping on the right mattress!

In general, back sleepers do best with medium-firm mattresses, as they provide a more consistent support for your pressure points.

If you go too soft, you could end up with sinking hips and a sore back. But go too firm and you'll likely have too much resistance on your hips and shoulders, also resulting in back pain.

The key is to find the firmness sweet spot: soft enough that the small of your back can rest comfortably on the mattress, but firm enough that your hips and shoulders are equally supported.Click here to learn more and get our specific recommendations.

Nectar Mattress FAQ

Nectar not only offers contoured support at a fantastic price, but it also provides peace-of-mind with an industry-leading 365 night risk-free sleep trial and Forever Warranty™.

Plus, when you buy from Sleep First you get $399+ of free bedding and pillows!

One of the best parts about choosing a Nectar mattress is the incredible year long trial period that starts the day your mattress is delivered to your door.

We encourage our customers to take the first 30 days to get to know your new Nectar and for it to get to know you before returning. We do this because studies and customers agree that it takes about 30 days for your body to adjust to a new mattress and we want to give you that time to get used to our product before making a final decision on your sleep experience.

This trial period is 3 times longer than most other trials we have seen in the industry.

Forever is a long, long time...and that’s how long we guarantee your Nectar mattress.

If in the unlikely chance you experience defects in construction, materials, or quality, Nectar will either replace or repair your Nectar mattress depending on how long you have owned it.

If you own a Nectar and sleep on a Nectar, we believe a Nectar should be the only mattress you’ll ever need.

Nectar has a diversified supply chain and their products are sourced, manufactured in places such as Vietnam, Malaysia, China, Mexico and USA with the utmost safety and sanitary precautions and measures taking place.

Nectar is designed with your comfort in mind, whether you sleep on your front, back, or side.

The mattress’ CertiPUR-US® Certified foams and breathable Tencel™ cover work together to help keep you cool, evenly distribute your weight, and contour to your unique shape to help relieve pressure points and fatigued muscles

On a firmness scale of 1 to 10, they have designed Nectar to provide a medium-firm 6.5 feel, or, as we like to call it, the mattress sweet spot.

Nectar will be the most comfortable mattress you ever owned if set up properly.

We recommend any foundation, base or adjustable frame that we sell or a similar/like product. The Nectar Move adjustable base is an excellent choice.

We do not recommend placing your mattress on the floor, plastic base, or home-made foundation.
