How can I find out how a mattress set is constructed?

Shopping for a mattress set

Shopping for mattress sets can be a terribly confusing business. Different dealers are going to market virtually identical mattresses so that they look as distinct as possible in order to attract customers. Worse, unlike a car dealership, you can't usually “look under the hood” and see what's inside your mattress. One sign of a good mattress dealer is a sample “cutaway” mattress where you can see how the springs and padding are integrated. Seeing the kind of padding and quilting will help you determine whether a particular mattress is worth another look.
