The scientific support ratings can give you an idea of how comfortable a mattress might be. But, we also offer satisfaction and comfort ratings from those who have used these mattresses for a period of 10 years.
According to recent surveys, our comfort ratings and satisfaction ratings for owners are based on information gathered from CR members who have used more than 74,000 mattress types over the last decade. The data came from CR members’ overall assessments of factors such as value, firmness/softness, and overall quality.
