What is the best type of mattress?
Each type of mattress has its benefits, firmness, and feel. As each body is different, it is important to know your sleeping needs to choose a mattress that can provide you with the best support and comfort.
When choosing a mattress, you should think of your sleeping circumstances, the level of support you need, and the feeling you want to achieve. If you want a traditional mattress with natural fillings offering great support, then a pocket spring mattress might be the right choice.
A memory foam mattress might be your best choice if you need a mattress to help alleviate back pain.
When it comes to firmness, the most important thing is to choose a mattress that you feel comfortable on.

What are the different types of mattresses?
The open coil mattress is a popular budget option that contains one long piece of metal wire coiled into numerous springs. They are the most common type of mattresses, but with the new industry innovations, they tend to be less supportive than other mattresses.
Made from individual springs housed in their fabric pocket, providing more support than open coil mattresses.
Made from memory foam, a mouldable material that responds to temperature and weight and has hypo-allergenic properties.
Cool blue mattresses are a type of mattress designed to provide a cooler and more comfortable sleep experience. They typically use materials that are designed to dissipate heat and promote airflow
Orthopaedic mattresses are designed to provide support and comfort for people with back pain, joint pain, or other musculoskeletal conditions. They are typically made with firm, supportive materials, such as memory foam, latex, or a combination of both.
How do I choose the right mattress firmness?
The right mattress firmness depends on your body shape, weight, sleeping position, and preferences. We offer a wide range of mattress firmness from soft to firm that you can find in our "By Comfort" Section.
If you are a back sleeper, you should opt for a medium-firm mattress. As a side sleeper, you should try a medium-feel, and as a stomach sleeper, a firm mattress might be your best option.
