How to Buy Mom a Mattress for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is a celebration about mom. The traditional gifts are flowers, jewelry, or candy, but what about the mom that loves a unique gift, a gift of comfort. Comfort is at the top of a mother’s list when it comes to various aspects in life. Mother’s Day is special because that day she can think about herself. She gets pampered and comforted. Why not comfort her with a new mattress?

Most women get less sleep than men do and even less sleep when they become mothers. Mothers have always kept us comfortable since the day we were born. It’s a mother’s duty to make sure that her kids are comfortable and supported.

When a mother has lack of sleep and is also taking care of her children, her bedroom needs to be her sanctuary. Somewhere where she can rest comfortably and get quality sleep. Somewhere where the thoughts of the day fade as soon as she lays on that perfect bed and can relax her mind and body.

Lack of sleep can cause serious health issues and for anyone, especially for mothers who rely on health to keep chasing after their kids. Getting quality sleep can bring happiness, energy, and comfort into the home and there’s an old saying, “when mom is happy, everyone’s happy.”

Here are some suggestions when buying a new mattress for Mother’s Day:

What kind of sleeper is she? It does matter what mattress you get by the way you sleep. If mom is a side sleeper, a softer mattress may be better for mom. If she is a back sleeper, a mattress with a medium to firm will suit her better and if she is a stomach sleeper, medium firmness may make her feel comfortable. Getting the correct comfort level for your mom will make all the difference in getting a great night’s sleep.

Advertisements beware. Just because an ad for a company claims that their mattress is for everyone, doesn’t mean it really is. Everyone is different. We are not a one-size fits all society. Why should we treat our sleep the same? Buying from a custom mattress manufacturer like Comfort Custom Mattresses will give you the opportunity to make a mattress customized to your mother. Plus, she will feel special to know you customized a mattress to her needs and not picked out a generic mattress for a unique woman.

Quality over price. Quality is just as important as comfort. A quality mattress will give your mom comfort for years to come. Buying a mattress that has quality materials makes a significant difference when it comes to the lifetime of the mattress. If mom has allergies, you can go with a natural latex made by the Talalay process. This latex his hypoallergenic, dust mite-resistant, mold and mildew-resistant, eco-friendly. Latex also provides resilient support and pressure point relief. There are many mattresses that can be made using latex. Comfort Custom Mattresses makes an All Latex mattress, Ultimate Mattress, and Pocket Coil and Latex mattress. These mattresses are different from each other, but all have natural latex to give mom the benefits, plus the support.

Do your homework. We’re not talking about your school work. We are talking about shopping around, finding out what mom likes, and reading reviews. The best way to find out if people recommend a mattress is by reading the reviews. Most people are honest in reviews and it can be a great tool to find out about a mattress and about a company. Read the reviews on the company, look up their website, and call and ask questions to find out if that company’s products are going to be worth the money and a great fit for your mother. Looking on a company’s website can give you a lot of information on what they offer. If a company doesn’t have great reviews or valued customers, then they probably wouldn’t be right for your mother. After all she deserves the best. By calling and talking to a sales rep at a company, you can ask questions that may not be on the website. Ask questions like current production lead time, materials, where materials are from? And so on. Keep in mind that the company wants to sell mattresses and if the response sounds gimmicky, it probably is.

By following these steps, you will be well on your way to helping mom have a great restful Mother’s Day. We here at Comfort Custom Mattresses & Marine Bedding take comfort, quality, & support seriously and work hard to make sure you are satisfied. If you’re interested in a mattress for Mother’s Day or any time of the year, we are here to make sure you get a great comfortable custom mattress.

Why you should buy a custom mattress vs. a standard mattress for your RV.

by Comfort Custom Mattresses & Marine Bedding Inc. on 04/21/17

If you own an RV then you know that the mattress your RV came with is not very comfortable and not ideal for sleeping on multiple nights in a row. Whether you’re an occasional traveler or live the full-time RV life, you need a comfortable home quality mattress to sleep on.

You may notice it is difficult to find a mattress that will fit the allotted space in your RV because most RV mattresses are not standard sizes or shapes. RV sizes are sometimes shorter than a standard mattress and there for the mattress must be a custom size. RV Mattresses also do not usually take the shape of a traditional mattress. Some mattresses have rounded corners and some have cut out corners or even a hinge. A custom mattress will allow you to get the correct mattress size as well as the comfort you long for.

Here at Comfort Custom Mattresses, we take comfort and customization seriously. Not only do we make sure you have the correct mattress, but we custom build the mattresses from raw materials Made in America at our showroom & factory located in Fort Laurderdale, FL. We want you to know what is going into your mattress, so you can have the best sleep you can while traveling. Here are some examples of mattresses we have made in the past and how they are beneficial to you.

Our Pocket Coil Mattress is a step up from a traditional innerspring mattress for those of you who are used to an innerspring mattress, but do not want the cons of the innerspring mattress. The Pocket coils are individually cased to allow a more buoyant feel to the mattress and support your body and maintain body alignment. The Pocket Coils eliminate motion disturbance because you are sleeping on our own coils. A foam edge encases the coils for edge support and a pillow top cover is added on top for a cloud-like comfort.

Our Cool Gel Memory Foam Mattress is a popular choice among travelers because this mattress provides the ultimate comfort by contouring to your body. The foam is infused with cooling beads that regulates your body temperature and give you a cooling feel while you sleep. Our Cool gel memory foam is laminated to our premium support foam for correct body alignment and support. This mattress also eliminates motion disturbance and relieve pressure points.

Our Ultimate Mattress combines both Cool gel memory foam & Latex to give you a cooling sleeping surface as well as support from the Latex. The Cool gel memory foam provides contouring comfort while the Latex gives you maximum support due to the resilience of the Latex core and is breathable due to the small holes in the Latex. This mattress is the best mattress for eliminating motion transfer and never will create body indentations because the mattress always returns to its original shape. Say goodbye to a sagging & lumpy bumpy mattress. Our Ultimate Mattress also has a long-life span of approximately 20 years, which is much longer than a traditional mattress that needs to be replaced every 7 years. No wonder this mattress is our bestselling mattress to date.

These are some options for you to consider when buying a new RV mattress. By buying a custom mattress, it will enhance your traveling experience and help you get the most out of your trip. Trade in those sore days for hiking or experiencing the outdoors like you want to.

5 Signs You Need a New Mattress

by Comfort Custom Mattresses & Marine Bedding Inc. on 03/28/17


If you have ever shopped for a mattress, you know that it is a decision you shouldn’t take lightly. Finding a mattress that has the perfect quality, comfort, & support should be at the top of your list. What if you don’t know if you need a new mattress? Or what the signs are that you need a new mattress?


These 5 signs are a sure bet that you need a new mattress.


  1. Your bed is sagging or has indentations - If your bed is sagging or you have an indentation where you usually sleep and it feels like you’re falling into a hole when you lay down, it’s time for a new mattress. There will be no comfort or restful sleep with a mattress that has permanent indents or sags in it. Get a new mattress and go for something with a little more support like our Cool Gel Memory Foam Mattress & Latex combination mattress. The Cool gel keeps you cool throughout the night and the Latex give the perfect amount of resistance that keeps your mattress from getting body impressions.

  2. You wake up sore and tired - You should feel relaxed, rested, and ready for the day after laying on your mattress. If that feeling escapes you, then you may need a new mattress. When you wake up sore, you are less productive and more likely to be less active during the day. No one wants to be sore all day long. When you sleep, your body regenerates itself and protects against invaders, but if you’re not getting good sleep and tossing and turning throughout the night, you’re health will suffer because of your mattress. Trading good sleep for keeping an old mattress is never a good idea. Ditch the old mattress and get one with contouring comfort, support, and offers pressure point relief such as our bestselling mattress, The Ultimate Mattress. There is a reason why people ask about this mattress by name.

  3. You have better sleep somewhere else - When you go to a hotel or a friends house, do you get better sleep? If your answer is YES, then you need a new mattress. You should have the best sleep when you are in the comfort of your own home, not when you’re on holiday or at a family member’s couch. You should feel like your bed is your sanctuary, somewhere where you know that you are going to have a positive experience. If you feel like your current bed is like sleeping on a rock, then we have a cloud-like mattress that will suit your needs and it’s our Pocket Coil Mattress. Our Pocket Coil mattress contours to your body.

  4. Your partner isn’t sleeping - You may be getting a decent night’s sleep, but chances are that you and your partner may not have the same preference on mattress firmness. If you notice your partner is not sleeping well, it's time to get a new mattress. By going to a showroom like ours, you will get to lay on a variety of mattresses and talk to someone knowledgeable on what you would like in your custom mattress. We adjust your mattress to you and your partners perfect firmness. We make sure you get exactly what you and your partner want.

  5. You don’t remember when was the last time you bought a mattress - If you can’t remember when you last got a new mattress, then it is definitely time to get a new mattress. Mattresses are not like wine, where they get better with age. Your mattress should not be over 7 years old because you wouldn’t be comfortable on that mattress. Your body naturally changes every year and within 7 years, your body could be drastically different. You may have lost or gained weight, which would mean your old mattress is probably uncomfortable to you.  Do yourself a favor and invest in a great mattress that suits you. You wouldn’t keep a pair of shoes for 7 years and expect them to be just as comfortable as when you first got them or wear the same pair of shoes from age 7 to 14 and expect them to fit. Upgrade your mattress as your needs change.


By keeping these rules of thumb in mind is a great start to figuring out if you need a new mattress or when to get a new mattress. Be sure that you do your homework, speak to someone knowledgeable of different materials that would suit your needs. It is best to buy a mattress that is made custom for you as opposed to a mass production mattress from a box store that may only take care of one of your needs and not meet them all.

Sleep Deprivation Effects on the Body Systems

by Comfort Custom Mattresses & Marine Bedding Inc. on 03/21/17

We've all heard for years that getting enough sleep is vital to a healthy functioning body. We have been told by doctors, teachers, & parents that it is very important to get a restful nights sleep, especially before a big test or presentation at work. But have you ever thought about why they stress this or what happens to the body systems when you don't get enough sleep? Body systems are effected by lack of sleep and if you're continually not getting enough sleep, it can lead to more serious problems.

Central Nervous System:

When you get enough sleep, your Central Nervous System rests the busy neurons that have kept you productive all day and builds new pathways to keep you productive tomorrow. However, without proper rest these pathways can't be built and the neurons don't rest. This leaves you open to feeling sluggish, tired, and sometimes short tempered. Your concentration slips, ability to learn lacks, and your brain is exhausted.
Immune System:
Your Immune System plays a important role of fighting off invaders, illnesses, & disease and with a restful night's sleep, your immune system will produce antibodies to fight infections and develop new cells. If you aren't getting enough sleep, your body doesn't have time to rebuild it's forces. The front line of defense is broken, weak, and not able to efficiently protect you against invaders. You have a higher risk for infection, illness, and your body will take longer to recover. Without adequate sleep you are also at higher risk for Cardiovascular Disease and Diabetes.
Respiratory System:
With proper sleep, your immune system will fight against illnesses and is vital to your Respiratory System. Without sleep, your respiratory system is open to invaders that your immune system cannot fight off. You're more likely to get a cold or Influenza than you would be if you had proper sleep.
Digestive System:
Your Digestive System is very important to your everyday life. It digests nutrients from food, eliminates waste, and your immune system lives there. Sleep deprivation causes weight gain according to Harvard Medical School. The risk of obesity is higher caused by over eating due to lack of sleep. You'll feel your energy is low due to poor absorption of nutrients. The stress hormone Cortisol will increase leaving you on edge & fatigued. More than normal amounts of Insulin are released after a meal, promoting fat storage and Type 2 Diabetes.
Cardiovascular System:
The body heals adequately when you have enough sleep opposed to when you lack sleep. Your body won't heal properly and leaves you at risk for infection. Lack of sleep causes us to not adequately repair your blood vessels and heart, which leads to High Blood Pressure, Heart Disease, and Stroke.

It is very important for our bodies to get sleep, otherwise our body systems will not work properly and will leave us open to infections and disease. Now that you know the truth behind why everyone is telling you to get good sleep, here are a few tips from The Mayo Clinic and Comfort Custom Mattresses & Marine Bedding, Inc. on getting good sleep:
1. Stick to a sleep schedule- Even on a holiday, go to sleep and get up at the same time to keep body systems functioning properly. If you cant sleep, get up and do something relaxing for 15 minutes, such as reading a book, yoga, or drink tea & try to fall asleep again.

2. Watch what you eat before bed-  Don't go to bed hungry or full. Limit caffeine and nicotine because these both are stimulates and will likely keep you awake. Going to bed full causes weight gain due to your digestive system not working like it should like during the day time.

3. Create a bedtime ritual- Creating a ritual allows your body to know when it's time to wind down. Our body will know when to relax and get the your systems ready to switch over to night shift. Routines are not only for our kids, we benefit from routines too.

4. Comfortable environment- Create a comfortable environment with cool temperatures and dark shades. This allows the mind to rest and relax setting you up for a comfortable night of sleep.

5. Mattress matters - Most of all, make sure you are sleeping on a good mattress and one that suits you needs. If you are a couple, you and your partner shouldn't sleep on a mattress smaller than a queen size. Bed sheets can give you comfort and style which makes your bed more inviting.
Incorporate some of these tips before going to bed and see if they help you to sleep. Give us a call at (954) 496-8400 to see how we can help make you a custom mattress as well as custom sheets to make your bed more inviting.


Local Manufacturer VS. Retailer

by Comfort Custom Mattresses & Marine Bedding Inc. on 03/18/17

Sure retail stores are usually first choice to go get what you need at the drop of a dime, mostly because they are conveniently located on every street corner or strip mall. But what if you needed something like a mattress that needs to last you more than a couple years?

Mattresses should be something that you think out, test out, and make sure your making a great investment for yourself and family. You'll want a mattress that will last, one that will be made with care, pride, and most of all quality.

Going to the box stores to make a huge purchase like a mattress seems like a good idea because the mattresses are mostly accessible the day you go. You lay on a generic mattress, you get a generic price, & you don't learn really what the mattress is made of. You might hear a fancy name of a mattress and how popular it is, but you are just talking to a sales person that has never seen the inside of the mattress.


Buying local from ma & pa stores or locally owned gives you the opportunity to speak to someone one on one about your unique needs in a mattress and helps address the fact that you will be getting what you really want. You won't just be a sale, you'll be a customer for life. A local mattress company values pleasing their customers with a great product is priority over mass production for quick turnout. Our mattresses are all hand-made with high quality, durable materials and are customized to fit your needs.

You may have heard that buying local boosts the local economy. Buying locally puts money back into the local economy and that money keeps the community alive. By shopping local, the community is kept from looking like every other franchised “Main St” America and instead is kept untouched by franchises & kept pure. Buying from a local store, the money is circulated through the community as opposed to a box-store where the money will not be used to benefit the community. For example, Peter is an owner of a mattress store and Stacy comes into the showroom and bought a mattress. The money she pays Peter for the mattress will then go to the pockets of Sam who makes the mattresses when he gets his paycheck. Sam goes to the local farmer’s market and buys corn. He pays the farmer some of the money he got out of his paycheck and the cycle continues. Buying local creates community revenue, stabilizes jobs, circulates money, and provides everyone with the goods they need. 

These local manufacturers are a joy to speak with and will quite willingly share what they know with you and encourage their employees to do the same. Most of them will quite happily custom build a mattress for you that will cost you a comparable amount to the same mattress purchased "ready-made". They can usually also make adjustments to their more standard models to fine tune them to your particular needs and circumstances.

Please shop local so that you get the best quality for your dollar, help grow the local economy, and know that what you spent your money on is also benefiting someone else. Come into our showroom and see why we are extremely proud to be a local mattress company and how much pride we have in our products.
