The fact that good sleep does not require any luxury is 100% true. A person who is sleepy will sleep anywhere without searching for sufficient luxury. But one should not forget that the effect of sleeping on a good mattress will make a difference. When you are planning to purchase a new mattress, what is that you give more importance to – is it the reviews or the ratings the mattress has got in the market. Well, mattress reviews are nothing but a personal opinion about a mattress.
On the other hand, mattress ratings depend on the support or the luxury it provides to the person using it. The mattress ratings do not depend on brand popularity or reputation. A mattress is rated on the qualities it has when compared with the other brands. Some of the factors that result in mattress ratings are:
- Weight-bearing capacity: What is the use of purchasing a mattress which cannot serve the purpose and gets pressed as soon a person with heavyweight sleeps on it? So the weight-bearing capacity should be checked before anything. The only checkpoint for this is when a heavy person sleeps on the mattress, the weight is evenly spread throughout the mattress, and there won’t be any pit like shape in the mattress. If this is found, then the mattress can be rated good.
- Affordability: The world is full of people with different income levels. So not all will be in a position to afford everything. A person with low income will choose a mattress which is according to his income level whereas the middle class or high-class people will choose as per their choice. A person who cannot afford to buy the product will never dare to rate the product because it is above his limit.
- Softness: Normally people use the mattress as it gives a soft touch below them when they sleep rather than sleeping bare on the ground. Just because softness is liked by many of us, it should not be considered as a checkpoint. The mattress is said to be good if it is neither too hard nor too soft. The hardness and softness should be equally balanced to make the purpose of manufacturing it successfully. However, some people choose a soft mattress for the small kids as they have tender skin. The requirement is understandable. So when a rating is checked, ensure that the mattress is usable by adolescents or adults. The usability of the mattress also makes a difference in rating.
- Return policy: Some brands promote their mattress by giving offers such as a return back policy in which the person purchasing the mattress can return it to the seller if he finds it not appropriate. The promotional offer may increase the sales, but the brand can be rated only if the seller accepts the products as stated in the promotional offer.
Mattress ratings are possible only when the product is used, or the person who is rating is fully aware of the product.
