If you have a bed, you have linens, sheets, bedding. Have you ever paused for a moment and thought about the quality of your sheets, pillowcases, comforter? Or even thought about luxury features like a feather bed? If so, you’ve probably found the process of shopping for bedding to be complicated and full of deception with price tags that can easily reach the $100, $200, even $300 and $400 price ranges. But how do you know what is good, what’s going to last, and what should be ignored?
Two months ago I decided I wanted a new, bigger bed; my full size just wasn’t cutting it anymore. In the process of mattress shopping, I would have to replace my furniture. As it would turn out, selecting furniture would be significantly easier than selecting a mattress. The mattress industry is one of the most convoluted, complicated, mixed up, upside down industries with dozens of manufacturers and retailers producing or selling the same thing, essentially, with minor variations. It’s a miracle they manage to stay in business.
