You haven’t slept well for the past month and you have finally decided that the problem may be the mattress. Perhaps your mattress is older than five years or you have noticed that it has an enormous lump in the middle. The key to a great night’s sleep is the best mattress! But, which one is perfect for you? Let’s have a quick look at 5 types of mattresses to help you decide.
With gel mattresses, the gel is added to a foam mattress in the upholstery layer or the support system. It has a faintly different feel than a memory foam mattress, so you may need to try it out to decide which feel you prefer. Gel mattresses also evaporate your body heat better, so if you don’t like the way foam mattresses take in your body heat, the gel option may assist.
Memory Foam Mattresses
If you are searching for the perfect comfort and support, specifically if you are a side sleeper, a memory foam mattress is a great choice. Memory foam is favoured because of the way it adapts to your body as you are sleeping. If you are a side sleeper, the mattress offers the support on your shoulder and hip that you require. This type of mattress contours your body and allows you to feel safely surrounded by the mattress while also being supported.
Also known as coil mattresses, use an interior support of metal springs. You can measure the quality of the support by how many coils are in the mattress. The number and even distribution of coils decide how well the mattress will adjust to your body. Coil mattresses also offer varying coil gauges and shapes that affect the quality of support.
Water mattresses use water as the main support system and are the best option for back sleepers. A waterbed is made up from a rectangular compartment of water that is padded with the material such as foam.
If you are a side sleeper, but not fond of a gel or memory foam mattress, a pillow top mattress may also be the best option for you. Pillow tops are just an additional layer of material that you add to your mattress, that is very soft and comfortable. This allows a similar sinking feeling as a foam mattress, that allows your shoulder and hip support.
