Size and Shape

As with any kind of mattress, deciding the size you want is the first step in picking a waterbed.  Water mattresses come in a full range of bedding sizes, from twin to king.  You can also choose an unusual shape, such as a round mattress, to give your bedroom a unique look.

To Wave, or Not to Wave

Some people enjoy the gentle rocking motion of water beneath them, while others find it very distracting, especially if it is a spouse or significant other whose motions are sending waves through the bed.  Luckily you have three choices to determine the level of motion in your water mattress:  waveless, semi-waveless, and full motion.

Hard frame, Soft Frame, or Soft Tube

The original waterbed design included a hard wooden frame which held the inner water mattress inside of it, as well as a plastic liner to catch leaks.  The hard frame sometimes made it difficult to get out of the waterbed, and could be unpleasant if hit unintentionally with a hand or knee.

More modern soft frames alleviate this problem while allowing waterbeds to be used with any bed frame.  Some soft frames are designed to hold long water-filled tubes instead of one single water mattress, which reduces waves and increases support.

Dual Waterbeds

Some waterbeds allow adjustment on each side, so that each partner can have the support and firmness that best appeals to him or her.  If you and your partner disagree on the perfect firmness for a bed, then this is the type of mattress for you.
