English term or phrase: mattress vs. box spring
Wikipedia explains a bet set as bed frame+box spring+mattress, but it seems that bed frame+mattress is popular used in China. So what's the exact equivalent of "box spring" in Chinese? Thanks.

普通床垫 v. 弹簧床垫


Explanation:
In my view box spring+bed frame, or the triple set as stated in wikipedia is the most popular choice in Chinese families. Bedframe + mattress only can be seen in many camps of military training.

床垫 vs. 床座/箱


Explanation:
国内的床座一般是木制的,有些里面还可以存放东西。上面放席梦思床垫。
box spring 从外表看也像是床垫,里面也有弹簧,比床垫厚些,但并不可以直接睡在上面(用手甚至可以摸到弹簧,睡起来应该不会太舒服)。box spring 一般是放在床垫的下面,再与床垫一起放在床架上。
如Culbuany讲的那样,bed frame, mattress 和box spring 一起构成一张完整的床。
