About CR Mattresses testing
HOURS OF TESTING
Back sleepers have a lot to like about this innerspring, but you might be less satisfied when you roll onto your side. With a latex-foam topping, the mattress is rated Excellent at supporting the curve of the spine for back sleepers— and very good at keeping side sleepers' spines horizontal. The mattress came out fine after eight years of simulated use, and it was top-notch at minimizing bouncing from across the bed. A 14-inch height may call for deep-pocket fitted sheets.
