When it comes to finding the most comfortable mattress, everyone has different needs. Depending on health conditions, preferred sleeping position and natural sleeping habits, finding the right model for you and your sleeping partner can become a tug-of-war between different materials, sizes and firmnesses. The best way to know which mattress is most comfy for you is to sleep on in during an at-home trial.. However, you can cut down the time by simply knowing your sleep habits and what options are available on the market.
Types of Mattresses
Today’s mattress market is much more diverse than it was a few decades ago. Today, you can choose from memory foam, innerspring and latex mattresses set at a range of prices. Each of these has its share of pros and cons, but there’s only one mattress that combines the best features of them all.
Memory foam mattresses offer softness and support, latex models are hypo-allergenic and firm with a layer of Talalay for softness. Innersprings are the oldest, most common type of mattress that come at an affordable price. However, Intellibed has all the best features of any mattress you’ll find on the market. Unlike memory foam, Intellibed is breathable and stays cool. It also stays firm without adding pressure thanks to the gel layer below advanced hospital-grade foam. Intellibed mattresses are also allergen resistant and contain Talalay like their latex cousins.
Types of Sleepers
Your ideal mattress depends on your sleeping position. Most people change positions throughout the night, but if your mattress is ill-fitted for your favorite position, you could wake up with back, shoulder or neck pain on a regular basis.
Side sleepers come in different forms. There are the straight-legged log, the fetal position and the Heisman trophy with one leg out and the other tucked. No matter where you fall in this category, you need something that supports your lower back, hips and pressure points. Side sleepers need soft to moderate firmness, enough to relieve pressure on your neck and back while contouring to your curves.
If you’re a natural back sleeper, congratulations! This is touted by sleep experts as the best position for your back and least likely to cause pain over your lifetime. However, back sleeping leads to snoring and keeps your partner awake through the night. Back sleepers are the Goldilocks of sleepers – a mattress that’s too soft causes you to sink into the bed, but one too firm will put too much pressure on shoulders and back.
Stomach sleepers, on the other hand, maybe in the worst position. It can aggravate sleep apnea, back pain, neck pain and may even contribute to wrinkles. Sleep experts suggest that a bad mattress may drive you to stomach sleeping. However, if this is genuinely the best position for you, seek out a firmer model that won’t cave in under you and strain your back.
Intellibed has it All
With the comfort of memory foam, support of innersprings and allergen resistance of latex, the most comfortable mattress for everyone is Intellibed. By combining foam, gel, and springs with a special Talalay surface, you’ll stay cool and supported in any position.
