People tend to strive for a good night’s sleep and there are a number of things that might be hindering you from achieving it. Unfortunately, for many people, it is their bed that is not helping them out and they don’t even know about it. Therefore, you should take a look at your mattress and if it feels like it be replaced then it is time for a change. But when selecting a mattress, it can be confusing about which ones are good and which ones aren’t. Some just go with
good mattress brands. While main brands do sometimes signify a quality mattress, it is not the only thing that should be considered.
Type of mattress
Start with what type of mattress you need. There are a number of different materials used in the making of mattresses and each one has its own pros and cons. You may wish to go with memory foam which provides great support, pressure relief, and contours for your body. Latex is also an option which is known for providing comfort and bounce along with its responsiveness and natural cooling. Other choices include the coils, pillow top, and hybrids to name a few.
When we refer to firmness while talking about the mattresses, it is essentially about how hard or soft you want your mattress to be. One of the many questions that come in your mind when choosing a mattress is that how hard you want it to be. Well, everyone has their own liking and there are a number of ways to measure the level of firmness you need in your bed. Often people see the way they sleep i.e. sleeping position, their weight, and what feels more comfortable and better option while selecting the firmness.
Your sleeping position and weight
As stated, your sleeping position has a big say in the firmness level and it varies from person to person. If you like to sleep on your side, you may need a medium firm bed with a range between 3 to 6 (on a firmness scale from 1 to 10). If you lie down on your back, a 4 to 7 firmness range would be better suitable for you. And for those of you that are stomach sleepers, the 5 to 7 range is what you need.
Also, individual weight impacts the sinking feel and cooling of bed along with affecting the support provided to you by a mattress.
