As with anything in life, there is a notable and remarkable difference between a man and a woman’s sleeping habits, as show in this infographic from Jawbone. From the time we prepare ourselves for bed, to the time we wake up, to the choices of pillows, sheet counts and mattresses, to our sleepwear preferences, to the the things we want to do best while in bed — these are all defined by our gender.

Consumers usually have a hard time shopping for a mattress because it’s hard to pick out which the best one is. But in order to help one decide, a surefire way is to test the mattress out first.

Which would be a better investment, a memory foam mattress or a memory foam topper?
