Why You Need a Suitable Mattress for Adjustable Beds

We hear this question frequently and we understand why.  You might want the benefits of adjustability but are still attached to your old mattress.  Or, you might be trying to save a few dollars by only buying the bed base and using your current mattress for a little while longer.

Ever heard of the old saying “penny wise and pound foolish?”   Sure, traditional flat bed mattresses do bend.  We’ve all moved them up stairwells and around corners and have seen them bend when pushed. But they’re not designed for years of repetitive bending in the same spots.  Using a traditional flat bed mattress on an adjustable bed base will quickly cause it to break down and it won’t be long before you’re sleeping poorly during the night and waking stiff and sore in the morning.

So the answer is no, you cannot use a flat bed mattress on an adjustable bed. An adjustable bed base needs a mattress specially constructed for years of adjustability.

We’d prefer you buy your adjustable bed and adjustable mattress from us.  After all, we’re the adjustable bed specialists.  But if you don’t, be careful when walking into a retail store to purchase an adjustable bed.  Most salespeople don’t know very much about adjustable beds and they often receive big commissions from selling the ‘mattress of the month’ that their company is either trying to get rid of or is heavily advertising. In most retail stores the sale of adjustable bed bases is designed as an upsell after the customer has picked out a mattress to buy.  We have sold many mattresses to people who didn’t realize the mattress they purchased at their local retail store was not designed to be used with an adjustable base.

Easy Rest’s adjustable mattresses are designed to bend for thousands of adjustments during their lifetime.  An Easy Rest mattress can adjust to more than 1,001 positions and return to the flat position over and over again without damage. Our adjustable bed mattress bends with minimal resistance and keeps the mattress fabric from clumping near your lower back, allowing you to experience unobstructed restfulness.

Easy Rest is the innovator of the replaceable pillow top mattress.  Our unique design allows users to customize the feel of their mattress to their individual needs.  And, it allows two people sharing the same bed to have different firmness foam on each side.  If your comfort preference changes over time there’s no need to replace the mattress.  All you have to do is change the insert in the pillow top portion of the mattress and you instantly have a different firmness level.
