Sleep is one of the most important requirements for growing bodies and active teenagers. Having a comfortable and supportive mattress is vital for quality sleep.
In terms of mattress size, most children and teenagers can easily sleep on a Single or Single XL. Taller children may benefit from a King Single or Double. Teenagers often appreciate the width of a Double or Queen mattress, especially as they grow taller and take up more room.
It may be harder for a child to tell you which comfort feel they prefer. We recommend models in the firm to medium range as they typically need fewer comfort layers built into a mattress. An in-store Sealy consultant can look for optimal spinal alignment and advise you on what models may suit your child best.
For long-term investment and durability, we recommend purchasing an ensemble that includes both a Sealy Posturepedic mattress and foundation. Not only will they help extend the life of the mattress, our Spacesaver bases can provide extra storage while trundle beds allow for guests.
