Real Mattress Reviews

When it comes to mattress reviews it can be tricky to know what is real and what isn’t. At Our Sleep Guide we use years of hands on knowledge and experience to genuinely try and test as many beds as possible before reviewing them. Allowing us to give real insight into quality, value and what to expect when making your purchase. Our real mattress reviews are here to help you, the consumer, to find the best night sleep possible.

Our Experience:

Justin, who has owned his own mattress store for 10 years, has invaluable insight when it comes to all aspects of the mattress buying process. He not only has worked with multiple manufacturers over the years but also has had the opportunity to understand what is important to sleepers when looking for a new mattress. This has allowed him to understand what materials not only are most ideal and durable but also what appeals to most people. Turning his years of experience into fully understanding how each online mattress reviewed will appeal and work for most sleepers.

Not only have I been able to help Justin and many customers at his store but have also learned about the ins and outs of how mattresses are made, the materials used as well as what is important when looking for a new mattress. This combine with my own opinion and sleeping style when reviewing mattresses has allowed us to share our experience and objective analysis. Giving a more in depth and personal review to our readers along with years of experience most other review sites don’t offer. Making our mattress reviews real and authentic. As well as thoroughly in the know of the quality and value of each bed.

Our Process:

When it comes to our review process we try to make the process streamlined and easy to understand. We focus on the same categories when looking at each bed. Making sure that each mattress is reviewed on a fair and level playing field. By focusing on these particular categories it not only creates more consistent reviews but also allows readers to compare the mattresses easier too.

Giving you a look into how each bed is delivered and the process of setting it up. As well as how long it takes to fully expand or dissipate any new mattress smells. We than test out each bed for several days. After trying out the bed we evaluate how our experience was. Focusing on the comfort, motion transfer, sleeping cool and edge support each bed provides. These categories are more subjective but we try to approach each with an objective viewpoint while still giving our personal feedback.

We also look at the materials and construction of the mattresses. Knowing not only what the mattress is made of but also how and where it is built gives us insight into quality, durability and longevity. We then look at the customer service provided by the company, along with the trial period and warranty. Lastly we look at all of these key aspects along with the price to review the overall value. Creating a comprehensive review from start to finish that is objective as well as subjective to our personal experience.
