Things you must know before choosing a mattress.

Invest in your own comfort. You want to sleep quietly and soundly throughout the night. The mattress that you choose should allow your muscles to relax. If your mattress is applying too much pressure to your body throughout the night, it will cause you to toss and turn,experience a great deal of discomfort and potentially cause pains, aches and soreness across your body. You should keep in mind that the greater the surface area that you sleep on, the less pressure your body needs from the firmness of the mattress. If you sleep on your back, your body covers a larger surface area, which can support a firmer mattress. However, people that sleep on their sides are exposed to a lower surface area and require a mattress that provides a softer firmness. When you are testing out a mattress, don’t just walk up to the mattress and touch it with your fingers to workout if the firmness is good for your body. You need to lay your body on the mattress for 10-15 minutes so you can feel the pressure of the mattress adjusting to your body and determine whether the mattress will provide your body with the level of comfort that you need. Additionally, you will be presented with different types of mattresses that will offer different types of support and sleeping experiences. Some of the most popular mattresses include:

  • Memory foam mattresses
  • Spring mattresses
  • Latex mattresses
  • Water mattresses

Each type of mattress has its own pros and cons. Visit Sleepify to learn more.

Size does matter.

Mattress size is more important than you might think. For partners that share a mattress, they may move several times throughout the night and disrupt the other person’s sleeping pattern. A common regret among most couples is when they don’t upgrade to a king sized bed that will give them the perfect amount of space. It is recommended that your feet should be at least 6 inches away from the edge of the bed. Also, put your hands behind your head and see if your elbows touch your partners. If your elbows touch, you will need to upgrade to a larger mattress.

Be careful with the mattress’ firmness labeling.

Something else to be aware of is the labeling difference from mattress brands that promote firmness. One mattress that is categorized as medium-firm might be classed as being soft by another mattress manufacturer. Don’t rely completely on the firmness that is advertised. Make sure you test the mattress by lying on it completely to assess the firmness.

Check that the mattress won’t affect your health.

Different mattresses are made from different materials. The last thing you want is to purchase a mattress that will affect your respiratory or skin health. Check the labels to see what the mattress is made from and any health warning or risks that’s associated with the mattress. It is important that you know what to look out for when choosing a mattress. People sleep for one-third of their lives and it greatly impacts people’s lifestyle and well being.
