Getting the right comfort level for your mattress is more often than not a personal preference, it’s about what feels right for you. Some of us like to nestle into a soft springy mattress and others just can’t get comfy without reassuringly firm support. Ultimately it’s your choice, but here are some things to consider if you need a little help.
Getting the right length
Ideally your mattress should be 10cm longer in length than the tallest person who sleeps on it; so if you’re 6ft or taller, you should opt for a king size or bigger
Avoiding aches and pains
Keeping your spine aligned whilst sleeping is key to a comfortable night’s sleep.
If you’re of a lighter build, a soft mattress could be suitable for you, as you will need a little more give for the mattress to adjust to the contours of your body
Conversely, If you’re of a bigger build a firmer mattress should be just the job to keep you supported
Sharing a bed
If you and your partner prefer different tensions, we have a nifty solution. You can both get the support you want by splitting the mattress in two, with different comfort levels for each half. We then securely zip the mattress together to create one whole with two different feels.
Your sleeping position changes throughout the night but if you tend to sleep in one position more than others, here are a few things worth considering;
Softer mattresses are often better for those who sleep on their sides, allowing your hips and shoulders to sink into the mattress and keep your spine nicely aligned.
Firmer mattresses can be a good choice if you sleep on your front or back, as the mattress doesn’t need to allow for the additional contours of your shoulders and hips
Medium - If like many of us you never stay in the same position for more than 5 minutes and you’re of average height and build then a medium mattress is probably just the mattress for you.
