Here you will find some pointers and key ideas to keep in mind to choose mattresses.
Are you a back sleeper or a side sleeper? Do you move a lot? Is it hot or cold? You must answer all these questions and some more before choosing the mattresses for your new home or to change your old one. Form Ecussleep, we know that not everybody has our knowledge in mattresses , that’s why bring you some ideas and pointers that you need to keep in mind when buying mattresses:
Soft or firm mattresses?
Soft mattresses are the best fit if you’re overweight, to prevent you from drowning, and for back sleepers. It’s very important to have a firm mattress that allows you to move easily if you tend to move in your sleep, because if you don’t drown, it’ll be easier for you to move and that way you won’t wake yourself up. But, if you are thin, you should choose a soft mattress which adapts itself to your body and distributes your weight. You should also choose a soft mattress if you’re a side sleeper.
The key idea is that the perfect mattress for you should preserve the natural curve of your spine when you’re on your back and also keep it aligned when you’re on your side. The trick to know how a mattress adapts to your body is to lie on your back and put your hand between the mattress and your lower back; if it glides easily, the mattress is probably too rigid for you, but if it doesn’t glide at all, it’s too soft for you and you will drown in your sleep.
Hot or cold?
Something very important to have in mind when choosing a mattress is the ambiance temperature. If you live in a hot zone or you’re heat-sensitive, you must choose a sprung or pocket sprung mattress or a open coil mattress, which perspire better. On the contrary, if you live in a cold zone or you like to sleep warm, latex or foam mattresses are the best choice for you, because they keep the warmth.
Two mattresses for a double bed:
If two physically different people with different habits of sleep, sleep in the same bed, the best option is to choose two connected mattresses, each one adapted to the person who will sleep on it; although it’s true that latex or sprung mattresses should adapt easily to both of them.
