Buyers usually spend more time focusing on the style of their bed frame rather than choosing their mattress. But buying the right mattress is truly a worthwhile investment as you spend 1/3 of your life sleeping on a mattress. Being able to choose the right mattress for your needs can be tricky- here’s a brief but comprehensive guide:
The best way to find the perfect mattress, is to try to lay on it. It is suggested that you take about 10 to 15 minutes to try out and lay down on the mattress before you finally figure out if it suits your needs.
When testing out mattresses, keep in mind the 3s:
- Softness– Mattress softness should keep your body comfortable and relaxed from all angles.
- Support– Your mattress should not only be soft but should also be supportive enough to cater to your unique sleeping patterns and body shape.
A soft mattress supports and maintains body’s natural curves and contours. It is also perfect for those who sleep on their sides and like to sink into their mattress.
A medium firm mattress is for those who like to change sleeping positions. Shoulder and hips will sink into the mattress but the rest of the body will be supported and maintained in a comfortable position.
If you need extra support on the other hand, an extra firm mattress is a great choice, perfect for those with back problems.
- Size– Basically, the common mattress size range is Single, Twin, Double, Queen, Kingand California King. From smallest to largest, each one differ by dimensions. Being able to choose the right size depends on the size of your room, your body size and the number of people who will be sleeping on the mattress. Always remember that your mattress should be at least 6” longer than the tallest person sleeping on the bed.
