This is a fairly subjective area but one that needs to be carefully considered. On first lying on a new mattress your initial reaction is not necessarily the correct one. Granted, a mattress that is way too firm of soft is an easy thing to spot but when you get to more similar styles of support and comfort it is worthwhile spending a bit of time relaxing on a mattresses prior to purchasing. It is important to try different methods to test the comfort levels. - sit on the side of the mattress to check its support and firmness when getting on and off the bed, particularly important if you have leg or back impediments - lie on the mattress full length and not half on with you legs hanging off the end. It is important that you do not arch your back when trying out a mattress as this gives a false indication of its comfort level - lie in several positions i.e. your side, front and back or curled up if you sleep like this. You should be checking if your back and hips are supported evenly and that there is not an excessive amount of room under your middle back when lying flat. You hips should not be uncomfortable when lying on your side and you should be looking to have you spine in a straight line from neck down to pelvis when lying on your side. - Ensure that the springing is not too soft when turning over on the mattress, if it is you will not be supported correctly and probably unable to lie still on your side as there is insufficient support. - Try the mattress with your partner if you sleep together as this is the best way to check that the mattress can support both of you without excessive bouncing when moving or roll together when lying still.
However, keep in mind that you do not have to choose the cheapest mattress in the market. You may save on money but you may also be compromising not only your sleep and comfort but also your health. Do not buy a mattress immediately but instead take time to visit all stores and weigh the pros and cons of each mattress that appeals to you. You also do not have to be tied to big name brands. Many small manufacturers of mattresses offer their products at a lesser price but with the same, if not better, quality as the larger companies.
