Tips for Buying Mattress
When shopping for a mattress, you should beware of the followings:
A too-hard or too-soft mattress with insufficient support can inflict unusual pressure and suffering to your shoulders and hips.
A comfortable mattress can definitely make a big difference at your bedtime. When choosing a mattress, try to lie down on the mattress in your normal sleeping pose to evaluate the support and comfort level.
A good mattress can gently support your body at all points, and keep the shape of your spine the same as you stands in a correct posture.
The quality of materials used determines the life-span of a mattress. So it is advisable to choose a reliable brand. Besides, do not overlook the support capacity of the mattress edges, as this can expand your sleeping area and protect the mattresses edge from drooping.
A healthy sleeper turns between 40 to 60 times a night. That’s why you need more space for the ease of movement and relaxation. You should choose a comparatively large mattress to give you plenty of room to stretch out.
BED FRAME DESIGN
Some bed frames may not be fit for some kind of mattresses. For example, due to the space between the wooden slats of the slatted bed frame, the bed frame cannot offer the uniform support required by pocket spring and renders this type of bed frame unsuitable for mattress with pocket spring. Besides, you should not place a new mattress on an old bed frame with a sprung top, as the new mattress may sink with the more worn out areas of the bed frame, causing damage to the mattress and jeopardizing its comfort level. Wrongly placing a mattress on an unsuitable bed frame may in some cases invalidate the guarantee. To avoid choosing an incompatible mattress for the bed frame or vice versa, it is advisable to make enquiries carefully when choosing the mattress.
The Coil Count Myth
People always say a larger number of coils in a mattress will lead to a stronger support, this theory is partially wrong. Two mattresses with equal coil count can have a completely different performance. The quality, structure and arrangement of coils are more important in determining the overall comfort and support level of a mattress.
Don’t judge a mattress by coil count only. It will be more reliable to make your own assessment by lying on it yourself.
