Which College Dorm Mattress Is Right For You?

Which College Dorm Mattress Is Right For You?

It’s nearly that time of year when freshmen will be heading to college for the first time. While you may be excited at the prospect of making new friends and memories, you are in for a rude awakening once you lay down for the first time on your college assigned mattress. While you could settle and try to adjust to the uncomfortable mattress you will spend your college years sleeping on, even if sparingly, you could bring your own mattress and achieve great sleep anytime you crawl into bed. If you are getting ready to head off to university, here are some of the reasons you should add a new dorm mattress to your checklist for move-in day.

Focus on the Fill

While you likely won’t have much control over the size of your mattress, you will be able to find one that meets the comfort level you are looking for. Most dorm mattresses will likely be twin-size, but that doesn’t mean you have to be uncomfortable. Whether you are interested in memory foam, gel, or anything in between, we are sure to have the perfect size for your needs to help you get the best sleep possible between classes or throughout the night.

Improve Your Pillows

Like a mattress, the pillows you choose can have a direct impact on how well you are able to sleep at night. Whether you prefer to sink into your pillows or need a more firm solution, having the right pillow to support your head will ensure you remain comfortable throughout the night. Even if you already have a few options in mind, take the time to try out a few different options. Pillow technologies have come a long way and you may find a better fit!

Find Your Sheet Fit

Once you have the perfect mattress and pillows, it’s important to top it off with the right sheet set. Dorms can get incredibly hot and the last thing you will want to do is sleep underneath a weighted blanket. Instead, look for a jersey sheet option to top your dorm mattress or something light that will provide coverage without trapping heat. Maintaining a consistent body temperature throughout the night will ensure you remain comfortable and sleep as soundly as possible.
