Why the sleep trial phase is important?

Buying a new mattress is not an easy task. A mattress is a longtime investment and therefore it is very important that it is comfortable and right for your body. But you should also take into account that your body needs time to get used to a brand new mattress. So, how do you find out that whether you have chosen the perfect mattress? Fortunately, you can find this out during the sleep trial phase. But what exactly is a sleep trial phase? We will explain it to you now.


What is sleep trial phase?

A sleep trial means that when you purchase a mattress, you can try out the mattress for an agreed number of nights. If the mattress eventually does not please you, you can return the mattress and get a full refund.

Why is a sleep trial phase important?

All bodies need time to get used to a new mattress. It can take a few weeks for your body to adjust to a different sleeping style or posture on a new mattress, but once your body has adapted we are sure that you will feel the benefits! Each mattress has its own set of characteristics that can vary greatly. Hard, soft, pocket springs, foam layers or comfort zones ... Each property provides a special addition, and every combination is different. In addition, quality also has a major impact. If you have slept on a cheap mattress for years, a quality mattress may be different and a lot firmer then your body is originally used to. So even though you may feel that a particular mattress feels comfortable, with the right level of firmness when you test it at the store, your body may still need more time to process this.

Why is it better to test the mattress at home instead of a store?

You should test out the mattress in the environment where you feel most comfortable and it comes as no surprise that you will feel most at ease in your own space with no distractions and everything you need at hands reach. In addition, you often only take about half an hour in a store to try out a mattress. This is not enough! At home, you can test the mattress for a much longer period. It is important to actually sleep during the testing phase, since can try out different sleeping positions and find out what suits you more. Finally, it is also fun to see the mattress in your home, all decorated in your bedroom.

How long should you test a mattress for?

This of course differs per person. Some people already know that the mattress is right for them in one night! While others need a lot more time to adapt to the mattress and figure if it suits them. However, we do not recommend a trial phase that is less then 2 weeks. On average, your body requires around 4-6 weeks to get used to a new mattress depending on your body type and sleeping style. After your body gets used to the mattress, it is of course also very important to thoroughly analyze its comfort. In total, you would have to test the mattress for at least one month to know if its perfect for you.
