What is a waterbed insert? Think regular mattresses like Serta, Sealy, and Simmons with coil springs. Please take note that each of the three mentioned sizes below. Each is approximately 1 inch smaller than your wooden waterbed cavity. This is because the newly found additional space surrounds the entire mattress on all four sides.

The much-needed extra room gives you the essential extra space that is needed so that the mattress fits correctly. You can rest assured that your new mattress will not fit so tight that you can’t do the simple daily chores like getting your hands down inside the frame to tuck in your mattress pad, sheets, and a comforter. You will love the extra space!

Mattresses that are cut to exact measurements of your waterbed cavity do not offer the luxury and are the reason stores do not recommend making mattresses to your exact cavity specifications. 

Additionally, waterbed inserts are thicker. Take note of this on the specific model you are considering, as this can not only increase mattress comfort but also increase the ease of getting into and out of your bed. 

These days companies like STL Beds can do just that, and for those in immediate need also stocks select models for immediate delivery.
