Mattresses, What about them?

Posted on Wed, Mar 02, 2011


What about it: Foam, air, water, latex or springs? Maybe a futon? Which is best for you? These days you can even get one of the four elements of classical mythology in a mattress.

I've asked an orthopedic doctor and a chiropractor which mattress is best and the answer I heard most was a mattress should support you in the "position of function" - the way your spine is when you are standing up. That means when you lay on a mattress it should fill in your curves and be supportive yet comfortable. Too firm and it will flatten your back. Ouch! And if it is too soft it will not give enough support. Does that solve the problem?

There are tons of mattresses that can work for you at different price points. That's why you need to lay on each mattress for at least 15-20 minutes in the position you sleep in to get a real feel. Your partner should also go with you to try out the bed. You do not need to spend thousands of dollars for a great night’s sleep but you do need to spend enough to get good quality material that will last a few years, unless of course the mattress is for temporary use or in a guest room. Do you want your guest to stay forever?...

What extras do you really need? Mattress ticking and quilting looks pretty but what does it do for your support and comfort? Close your eyes and don't look - just feel what you are laying on. When will you see it? As soon as you get the mattress home, you cover it up with sheets. At least I hope you do. So what difference does it make? Don't spend money on looks! That is ridiculous.

- Do look for comfort and support.
- Do
look for the price that is right for you at this time.
- Do
look for a good fire barrier in case of the unexpected.
- Do
look at how long you might keep it before doing this crazy shopping around again.
