What should I rest my mattress on?
Updated by Brenan
Bear mattresses are designed to lay on any hard, flat surface. We highly recommend a foundation paired with a solid bed frame, a platform bed, or an adjustable bed base. We don't recommend using a traditional coil box spring, because it does not provide an evenly distributed surface area for foam-based mattresses. Read more about what you should rest your mattress on in our blog.
