Is your mattress old? Are you sleeping on the same bed you slept on when you were a teenager or maybe you inherited your mattress from a beloved aunt’s dusty guest room? Be honest. Do you even know how old it is?
Regardless of the warranty, a decent mattress only lasts 7-8 years depending on its quality, what it is made with, and how often it is used.
Has your body size or sleep position preference changed? A lot can change in 7 or 8 years. Growth, injuries, pregnancies, or sleep positions: all these things can affect how we experience a mattress and how we prefer to get our rest.
If your body has changed substantially in size or you are sleeping differently than you were when you bought it, you may want to consider replacing it.
Are you experiencing pain? A good mattress can offset pain (like back pain) you experience, not cause it! If you are waking up every morning with stiffness in your joints and muscles, your bed may very well be part of the problem.
If your mattress is an incorrect match and does not suit the curves of your shape or weight, you may be sleeping with poor spine alignment or with inadequate pressure relief.
Are you in need of an upgrade? You are not wearing the same clothes or driving the same car you were when you were a teenager, so why are you sleeping on the same mattress? It makes sense to consider a new mattress. Buying a new mattress can be quite daunting.
A mattress is a highly personalised choice, and it is close to impossible to know you have made the right decision. Regardless of how much you may research online, how many reviews you consult, or minutes you spend in a mattress store rolling about on different beds, you won’t know it’s a match until you try it out at home. It takes 6 weeks for the body to adapt to change, this is why Moon Mattress has a 120 night sleep trial on our Moon Mattress Collection, allowing enough time for your body to adapt to your new mattress.
