When choosing a new mattress it is important to consider your sleeping needs. If you have back problems it is recommended you get an orthopaedic mattress, as they are designed to provide a firm level of spine and joint support, easing the pain associated with certain back issues.
Most mattresses come in a range of firmness levels, sometimes they are labeled 1 to 5, 1 being the softest and 5 being the firmest. In reality there are far more than 5 firmness levels, and many mattresses considered the same firmness rating may differ in actual firmness. At Sure Sleep we simply label them soft, medium and firm to give you a better idea of the mattress you’ll be getting.
In addition to the firmness level, you may also want to consider the comfort fillings. Cheaper mattresses will feature Polyester fillings, where higher end mattresses may contain cotton, wool and luxurious fibres such as horse hair, cashmere or silk.
Choosing the right spring system can also make a difference, and they usually come in 2 types:
- Open Coil / Bonnell Spring
- Pocket Sprung
