Recently a customer shared with us some mattress shopping advice her Mom had given her. Stay away from the S’s, she was told.
“Whatever mattress you decide upon, just DON’T get a mattress from a brand that starts with S.” She was referring to Sealy, Simmons, Stearns and Foster, Serta and Spring Air. (Why DO all the Big Name Mattress Companies have names that start with the letter S, anyway?)
Why do we think our customer’s Mom’s advice was so great? Because all of the aforementioned companies only make one-sided, Can’t Flip Mattresses for the general public! They do, however, make two-sided mattresses for the hotel/motel industry (the buyers for whom WON’T buy one-sided models because they just don’t last). Many smaller, ‘second tier’ mattress companies have followed suit, making and selling only one-sided mattresses to the general public.
We only sell 2-sided mattresses
They last up to 3 times longer, while staying comfortable.
One-sided mattresses just don’t last as long as a two-sided mattress you can flip. Many mattress companies and all “big S” mattress companies have adopted the one-sided, can’t-flip mattress for just one simple reason: there’s more profit in them. One-sided mattresses are about 25% cheaper to produce, yet manufacturers can wholesale them to the dealers and retailers for the same price they did a two-sided mattress. That means more money in their pockets, and more money over time from customers. One-sided mattresses don’t last as long as two-sided models, which means consumers (YOU) will be replacing their mattress sooner.
For an insider’s perspective on why ’no need to flip’ mattresses are the biggest consumer disservice (dare we say fraud?) since . . . ever? . . . read our most popular blog post ever, “Can’t Flip” Mattress Rant.
Visit our store and try out our two-sided mattresses or ones that have removable covers that allow you to refresh the mattress. It’s just the right thing to do and yep, Mom really does know best!
