Before you actually go out and buy it, do a quick research online for the one that fits your personal preference. When you have found the perfect one, don’t click on order just yet. You should test the mattress in person. Because if something looks good in a picture, it does not necessarily means it will feels good in real life. Besides, product reviews are, for the most part, personal bias. Even if something gets all positive ratings, you would be better off testing it in person.

2/ Understand the types

Here are the three most popular types of mattress on the market:

Inner spring: A traditional mattress. This is perfect for those who are currently on low budget or intend to upgrade in a few years.

Foam mattress: This is perfect for those who are sensitive to pressure because there are no metals inside it.

Air mattress: An adjustable mattress. You can increase of decrease the firmness by altering the amount of air inside it.

Find out what you suits your personal taste and needs, test them all out and go with the one you like most.

3/ Test the mattress in person Test the mattress

Try lying on the mattress for about 15 minutes to check if it is comfortable or not. Try all other sleeping positions as well. You are going to spend many hours a night with it so it is a good idea to try it out in advance. If your current mattress is ancient, everything will feel brand new or strange at first; it will take a while to get used to it.

 

4/ Cost and maintenance

Before deciding to buy something, you should make sure that you know how much it cost and if you are comfortable with it or not. You should also ask the clerk about the delivery and other additional costs i.e. cost of removing the old one or installing a new one. These can add to make up a considerable sum so you should use your negotiation skills to lower it down.

5/ Protect your investment

Causing too much damage to it and you are at risk losing the warranty; therefore, I would also suggest a mattress cover to go with it. Mattress tends to harden with age, while people usually need a softer of as they get older. To tackle this problem, I’d suggest that you buy a latex topper or high quality gel to add more life to your mattress.

Another trick to help prolong the life of the mattress is to rotate it once in a while, especially if you sleep with your significant other. If there is a sharp difference in weight between two partners, one side of the mattress will wear out much faster. Therefore, you should do this trick about twice a year.

Lauren by Ralph Lauren down alternative comforters review

In this post, I’m going to give a full review of the newest alternative down comforter  from Ralph Lauren.

Product detail

The product dimension is 90(W)” x 92(L)” or 229(W) cm x 234(L) cm and weight 7.2 pounds. The comforter is filled with white alternative down and Lite Loft resilient hypoallergenic fill. Cover with 100% cotton, it also has corner loops for attachment to LRL duvet cover.

Pros

The comforter has medium weight, not too light or too heavy. The fill quality is really good. When you press your hand on it and release, it puffs right back.

Pros

Because it is filled with hypoallergenic fill, you won’t have to worry about down allergy anymore.

A good year-round comforter, not too hot on summer but still very warm in winter. It’s all because of the breathable material.

The down fill is sectioned in squares and seal tightly. This will prevent the fill inside to slip away and maintain the shape of the comforter.

4 corner loops for easier attachment to LRL duvet cover. This way the cover won’t get loose anymore.

Cons

Cons

I notice this one making noises when I turn in my sleep. It may don’t matter too much for most people but I’m very sensitive when I sleep so this is kind of disturbing. Hope I can fix this after a few wash to soften the fabric.

It could look thin for some people and doesn’t suitable in cold climate areas. And the package doesn’t come with a duvet cover. I have to purchase one myself.

Only comes with one size, the queen comforter looks too big on my single bed. They should come with the single or twin version.
