Get a Good Mattress for the College Years


The college years are ones of experiment and growth; of doubt and hope. So many demands are placed upon college students that it is easy for them to forget to take care of themselves, to burn the proverbial candle at both ends. The result can be complete exhaustion and the need for a sound night’s rest in order to recharge the intellectual and physical batteries for the next day. This will come a lot easier if the college student has got a good mattress to depend on, one that is not too soft and not too firm — and not too expensive!

Whether in the dorm or on their own, college students should take the time to invest in a solid mattress — one that will last them throughout their years at school, and beyond. The brand choices are huge, and continue to grow. Here are a few of the favorite mattress brands on college campuses today:

The Signature Sleep mattress

For students on a fixed budget this is one of the best sleep investments available. It is manufactured with traditional spring technology, but also includes a quilted pillow top of memory foam, combining the two forms into one sweet sleeping experience. At thirteen inches thick, it’s one of the sturdiest mattresses around.

The Contour Signature Sleep mattress

Eight inches of solid spring coils topped with a cotton quilted foam pad, this is the lightweight version of the Signature mattress, made especially for students who might be moving around a lot during their college time. It’s inexpensively priced, too. It’s easy to transport, durable, and guaranteed to aid and abet in getting a sound night’s sleep.

The Memory Foam mattress brand

The original Memory Foam that started it all for the mattress industry, Memory Foam mattresses are one of the most expensive brands on the market, but the benefits should make students give it serious consideration. That’s because it’s consistently rated as the best mattress overall for overnight muscle relaxation, so it’s perfect for college athletes. Plus it comes with a limited lifetime warranty, so in theory you’ll never need to buy another mattress for the rest of your life!

The Trizone Ultimate Dream mattress

With three layers of the latest foam technology, the Trizone is both comfortable and very affordable. The whole thing is stitched together in a cocoon of cotton quilting that gives it extra warmth during cold weather and cooling air flow during the hot summer months.
