The most common type of mattress available now is a spring mattress. The core of these mattresses is made up of coils which support the body. Sometimes the coils are enclosed in pockets, and these types of mattresses offer more contoured support that in mattresses where the spring is one piece. What should you look for in a coil mattress? The coil gauge is a good indication of the quality as this figure shows the thickness of the coils. Bear in mind that it is not the number of coils in the mattress which makes it superior, but rather the thickness of the metal which is used for them. The bottom line is that the thicker the metal, or gauge, the firmer your mattress will be. We've selected five of the best coil mattresses for you to check out.
