The first decision you must make is about a mattress’ core, which provides the support. There are four common types: air-filled, latex, foam and innerspring.
Innerspring mattresses typically have either a foam or fiberfill outer layer, covered in quilted ticking.
Memory foam mattresses have much less spring. If you want to determine the quality, ask for specs on the thickness of the foam layer and the density of the foam. The thickness varies from 2 to 6 inches. Speaking of density, 5 pounds per cubic foot is considered to be of very high quality, down to 3 pounds per cubic foot is not so.
In terms of firmness, latex mattresses are similar to memory foam. Although it has a bit more spring-back. Natural latex is also microbial, making it resistant to dust mites and mold. This kind of mattresses can be pricey, but claim to last up to 20 years or more.
If you like customization, the air-filled mattress is your best option. It has a remote that enable you to control how much air is inside. Many of them have two side-by-side chambers. This allows the mattress firmness to be customized separately, for you and your partner.
Other than the types of mattresses, another think you need to think about is your lifestyle.

Or if you tent to sleep on your stomach, you may want a dense air-filled, latex or innerspring mattress.
If you tend to sleep on your back, any type of mattress is good for you.
