How to Choose the Best Mattress
Understanding how to choose the best mattress can help ensure that you get a good night’s sleep. The sleep solution experts from Innovative Sleep Solutions offer a wide selection of mattresses and we would love to help you find the best mattress for your particular needs.
Types of Mattresses to Choose From
Since choosing the best type of mattress is a matter of personal preference, it is important to carefully explore all of the options available, including:
Memory Foam Mattresses
Memory foam mattresses are the perfect option for people who are looking for a mattress that provides great support, pressure relief, and body contouring. While older memory foam mattresses were known for sleeping hot, newer memory foam mattresses can offer superior cooling properties.
Made exclusively from rubber trees, latex mattresses offer a higher level of responsiveness, comfort, bounce, and cooling properties. This type of mattress is ideal for people who want the feel of a foam mattress without the pronounced hug and contour of memory foam mattresses.
Also known as innerspring mattresses, coil mattresses are one of the most popular types of mattresses on the market. This type of mattress has one or more layers of coils that are designed to provide support and comfort. In most cases, the more coils the mattress has, the more support and comfort it offers.
Mattresses for Adjustable Beds
Adjustable beds allow you to easily change your sleeping position. While all mattresses for adjustable beds allow for the feet to be elevated and the back to be inclined, some adjustable bed mattresses also come with options for vibrate, heat, and massage.
Choosing the Right Mattress for Your Sleeping Position
One of the most important things you can consider while shopping for a mattress is your sleeping position and how it should impact your choice of mattress.
People who sleep on their sides tend to switch positions throughout the night. Since side sleepers constantly change position, a mattress with a soft to medium level firmness will be the best option, as it will relieve pressure points on the neck and back.
Back sleepers need firmness and support for a good night’s sleep. Mattresses that are too soft can create pressure points in the neck and back, which can lead to back problems. People who sleep on their back should choose a mattress that provides enough softness but still has a great deal of support.
Since stomach sleepers need to be as flat as possible, it is important to choose a mattress with a good level of support. In most cases, people who sleep on their stomach can benefit from choosing a mattress that provides equal support across their entire body.
