how to choose the right mattress

We all agree that choosing the right mattress is no easy thing and it is a task that needs time and searching. Usually it is recommended from specialists that mattresses should change after eight years of use. Extending this period may lead to trouble sleeping or experiencing back or neck pain.Consumers must determine the quality they need, find the ideal density and thickness of the mattress foam and decide how deep they will need to sink. There are several type of mattresses in the market now, some of them with different layers of foam, different type of springs and many more.

Before taking any decision, you need to consider some factors before buying a new mattress:

  • What is the position you sleep in?
  • What firmness and thickness do you need?
  • What is your ideal type of mattress and what materials do you need?
  • What budget are you willing to spent for a good night sleep ? 
  • What is your body weight ? 


The first thing you need is to figure out in to which  position you sleep in since most of us have a unique way of sleeping every night. Sleeping on your side, stomach or back, or even if you turn between different positions throughout  the night you will have to think and buy the ideal type of bed based on you like. So, pay attention  and decide what is your usual sleeping position because this will be an important factor to determine the firmness of your new mattress. 


Being myself as one in this category, we should get a softer mattress (medium soft) that can adjust to the curves of our body since we are exerting huge pressure and force on our joins while sleeping. Most important factor for this category is to get a model that has been designed to offer pressure relief. Check carefully all the specifications provided by our supplier and make sure that you get the right one according to your needs and body structure. Best recommendation would be memory foam mattresses since they are very well known for the deep sinking sleep and for pressure relief.

Being the opposite of side sleepers the stomach sleepers are considered as the worst sleeping position.  They usually need an ultra firm mattress in order to lift their hips in line with their shoulders, providing equal distribution of weight across their whole body. If you belong to this category, Never buy too soft matresses because your spine will curve causing severe back pain.
