Why you can Trust us
At Winstons Beds, we understand the importance of finding the right mattress, especially for those who are heavy. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to provide you with the best options on the market. Our extensive research and testing process involves a diverse group of product testers with varying body types, sleep positions, and comfort preferences, including those who have a history of hip pain.
As NBF Premier Retail Champions, we take pride in our commitment to quality and customer satisfaction. Our experts have thoroughly evaluated our mattress models and found them to be the best option for heavy individuals. We measure the depth of the mattress sinkage under the weight of our testers, along with considering factors such as motion isolation, temperature control, pressure relief, off-gassing, ease of movement, edge support, and the body weight of our testers.
You can trust that when you purchase a mattress from Winstons Beds, you’re getting a product that’s been thoroughly tested and proven to provide the support and comfort you need for a restful night’s sleep.

Our mattress evaluations, we consider a number of factors to determine the overall quality and comfort of the mattress. One of the criteria we consider is motion isolation, which refers to the amount of motion the mattress absorbs when a person moves on its surface. We use two testers lying side by side to evaluate this, and they each feel for transfer of movement while the other person moves on the mattress.
Another criteria we consider is temperature control. To determine how well a mattress regulates temperature, we perform temperature tests and carefully examine its materials and construction. Many mattresses are designed with cooling components to help reduce heat retention.
We also consider pressure relief, which is a measure of how well a mattress prevents pressure from building up in areas like the shoulders and hips. Mattresses with evenly distributed contouring and weight are typically the best performers when it comes to pressure relief.
Off-gassing is another factor we consider. A mattress in a box may release unpleasant odors for a short period after it has been unboxed. This initial smell may be strong, but it usually fades within a few days.
Ease of movement
Ease of movement is another criteria we evaluate. This reflects how easily a person can move across the surface of the mattress. Mattresses with responsive surfaces made of natural fill tend to perform better in this regard than those with foam surfaces, which can inhibit movement.
We perform sit tests along the perimeter of the mattress to determine how well the edges push back against weight. Mattresses with strong edge support have minimal sagging when people sit on or lie close to the perimeter.
In addition to these factors, we also take into account individual body weight when evaluating a mattress. We assess how comfortable the mattress will feel for different body types to provide a comprehensive evaluation.
