When your new bed arrives, it may feel a little different from your old bed at first. This is simply because it will take a bit of time for your body to adjust to the new level of support and comfort your new bed has. The mattress may also feel different from the one you tried instore—this is because a new mattress will take a few weeks to wear in. Remember the mattresses instore have been tried out by many people before you, therefore wearing it in before you tried it out.
