Millions of kids, tweens, college students, and even young adults have twin mattresses. After all, they’re extremely affordable and easy to transport and move as the kids change rooms, head to college, or get a new apartment.

But a twin mattress won’t last forever. There will come a time when it won’t be as comfortable or supportive as it once was, and it will start to affect your sleeping habits. Want to make sure this doesn’t happen to your twin? Watch for these all-too common signs.

  • It’s sagging or drooping. If your twin mattress has serious sags or dents in the surface, then it may be time to replace it. Sagging and drooping means the mattress has lost some of its strength, and that means a less supportive, comfortable sleeping experience on the whole. It may even leave you tossing and turning at night.
  • It’s no longer long or wide enough for your body. If your feet or arms hang off, or you have to contort your body at weird angle just to fit on the bed, it’s definitely time to replace your mattress. You should be comfortable, at ease, and fully supported while you sleep. If you’re not, your mattress isn’t doing its job.
  • You find yourself waking up with aches, pains, or stiffness. When you wake up, you should feel rested, rejuvenated, and ready to take on the day. If you’re waking up with aches, pains, or stiffness instead, consider this a big red flag. You’ll want to invest in a new mattress as soon as possible, before it leads to permanent health problems.
  • The interior of your mattress is exposed. Are you seeing the stuffing, coils, or padding coming out of your mattress? If so, that means it’s just about done for. Just think: if that outer shell is so worn down, imagine how damaged the coils and other support systems must be!

If you sleep at a hotel or family member’s house for the night, and you get a better night’s sleep there than at home, this is also a red flag. You should invest in a new mattress before the problem worsens.
