What I look for in a mattress

This article is written in partnership with Goodnite.

I remember the first time I went out to buy my first mattress. My mom told me to go buy a good one and spare no expense. I was a little surprised because my mom is really careful with money. When we eat out at a restaurant she would discourage us from ordering fruit juice because she could make it for much cheaper at home.

So when she said that I must find a mattress that I like and spend even if it’s more expensive than other mattresses, I was surprised. She later explained her logic. We spend a minimum of 8 hours a day on the mattress. That’s 1/3 of our lives. So why settle for anything but the best?

The best to my mom of course isn’t necessarily the most expensive, but the most comfortable. A few weeks ago I found myself in a situation of buying another mattress again. We had a tenant in our house moving in and she spotted that the previous mattresses we had were a little thin. She asked if we could change it and remembering what my mom had imparted on me, I quickly obliged.

I went around to look for a good one of course and about that time I started talking to Goodnite in working with them on getting a new mattress for my home. The one I went for is the Goodnite Statfree Love Series Mattress from the True Love Mattress range. It comes with anti-static Belgium technology and is woven with carbon thread which is as thin as hair to discharge body static permanently.


The most important thing I look for in a mattress is how firm it is. It has to be firm enough that when I lie down I don’t feel like my back bends into the bed. Instead it’s firm enough to hold my back up straight, especially important to me because I tend to sleep straight. This mattress covers that need of mine pretty well. It comes with a Double Posture Coil (DPC*) System which Goodnite patented spring for extra spinal care.

I also got Fighter to test it and I think he approves.


The mattress 14-inch thick mattress costs between RM1,999-RM2,399 depending on its size. That’s the other thing to look out for when it comes to mattresses: durability. The cost of not getting a good one isn’t just in how firm it is or how good it is for your sleeping posture but also how long it lasts.

The Statfree® Love Series also has DPC® System for extra spinal care.

All in all I think it’s a great mattress and is good value for money. If you’d like to check it out you can go to their website here.
