How do you buy a bed without ever laying on it? You can and should read plenty of reviews, scour the Internet for information comparing materials, warrantees, and customer satisfaction. But what works for other people won’t necessarily be the right solution for you. There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all model for people. We’re all built differently; your mattress should be too.

Hybrid Mattresses

Hybrid Mattresses

At Arizona Premium Mattress we have noticed a huge increase in sales related to our Pocket Coil with Latex designed hybrid mattresses. I think one of the main reasons people are gravitating to this type of mattress is that it's more of a "known feel". In other words when buying a mattress online you are always taking a risk of it not being what you expected especially since you cannot try it first. Most people are familiar with the feel of a spring type mattress but as many of you have experienced lately the durability of the foams used in those fall short of expectation. Most spring mattresses were not designed so they could be roll packed and shipped via FedEx or UPS until very recently.

Mattress buying has become one of the most statistically proven dreaded experiences for a consumer. But does it have to be? The words and language used alone can be an overwhelming experience. This article is designed to help take some of the guess-work out of mattress buying.

Moisture Control is Key!

Moisture Control is Key!
Often overlooked by traditional manufacturers, moisture control in mattresses and bedding is probably one of the most important components to a undisturbed sleep.
When we sleep we perspire. If that moisture is trapped in the fabrics next to our bodies, we get clammy and hot and are usually woken up by it.

Don't Judge A Mattress By Its Cover...

Don't Judge A Mattress By Its Cover...
There are two comments customers frequently repeat in my store when picking out a mattress, and both comments have validity, but not maybe in the manner you’d expect.
The first comment is, “You can’t tell anything by trying out a mattress for 20 seconds.”
The second comment is, “This mattress feels good, so it’s perfect.”
Let’s take a look at each of these.

Made with All Natural Latex Does Not Mean It's All Natural

All Natural Talalay

Over and over again I see what to me is very misleading descriptions, although truthful, so let me take a minute to clarify some terminology I see tossed around on the internet. The term "Made With 100% Natural Talalay" does not mean that it is completely all natural Talalay made by Talalay Global or Radium Foam. I see this term being used in conjunction with Blended Talalay which of course is a mix of both all natural rubber and synthetic rubber.
