If it’s not confusing enough to choose and shop for a new mattress, some misinformation out there can make the decision-making process even harder. So, it’s best to be educated by knowing the facts before you go shopping!
Here are 5 mattress gimmicks you should ignore right now:
Myth #1 – You should replace your mattress every eight to 10 years
The lifespan of a mattress can vary depends on the material(s) and component(s) inside it. While the recommended time is eight to 10 years, how you take care of it and how you sleep on it also matters! Considering the number of dead skin cells and other things that accumulate, it’s not a good idea to hold on to a mattress for more than 8 years unless it’s a natural latex mattress like Mimpi’s! Natural latex has a low pH, so mold, mildew, bacteria, and the fungal organism will not flourish in these environments.
Myth #2 – A firm mattress is the best mattress for back’s health
Your preferred sleep position and health concerns play a big role in choosing a mattress’s firmness. Here are some quick tips:
- Soft/plush-firm: More preferred by light sleepers and side sleepers
- Medium-firm: Great for those who sleep on their side or back and the best for spine’s health
- Firm: Best for heavier people and those who like to sleep on their stomach, also great for people with back pain
In Mimpi, you can choose between our three mattresses with various firmness scale! If you are unsure, our customer service team will gladly help you choose the best one for you.
Myth #3 – You should flip your mattress every few months
Flipping your mattress is no longer necessary when your mattress is one-sided. However, to extend your mattress’s lifespan, it’s great to sleep in various positions and places on the mattress so the entire surface compresses evenly.
Mimpi’s mattresses are designed one-sided so you don’t need to flip them. Moreover, we studied everything we could to discover materials that were extremely comfortable and durable so you don’t need to worry about sagging!
Myth #4 – A quick lie down test in the showroom is all the testing needed
Did you know? Most people need at least a month to adjust their bodies to a new sleep surface! For this reason, Mimpi gives you the chance to sleep on your new mattress for 100 nights so you can discover that you like it. You can try your new Mimpi mattress for 100 nights in the comfort of your home, with no obligations. If you don’t love it, Mimpi will organize the return and give you a full refund.
Myth #5 – Great quality mattresses are expensive
Higher prices do not mean better sleep! Did you know that a mattress company that has offline store markups its products’ prices up to 10x? This is usually attributed to large markups, which depends on the brand. In addition to manufacturing costs, there are marketing costs, retail markup, and sales commissions.
At Mimpi Sleep, we have added more transparency to the process and cutting out the middleman thus drastically reducing the selling price. We removed all those superfluous costs by selling a high-quality product direct to the consumer online.
