Firstly, We need to understand the dynamics of our built, body alignment & pressure points with the mattress. As all bodies are not the same they will vary in shape, weight, height and preferred sleeping positions. Hence, a luxury mattress which is so good for an individual may not be so comfortable for another person. Most of the reputed brands design mattresses using years of experience, research and available technologies. However, it is the responsibility of the user choosing the right mattress for a peaceful sleep.
One of the most important things when selecting a luxury mattress is choosing the right pillow. Pillows are really important to your sleep posture and sleep routine.
The role of the pillow is to bridge the gap between the shoulders and the neck, this helps the back align on the mattress. When the back is aligned on the mattress, this will reduce any pressure on the cervical spine.
Ask your mattress retailer in New Zealand to provide you with a pillow that should be something similar that you normally use. Remember to carry your pillow to every mattress you try or you can be a victim of pillow bias and can go wrong in your mattress selection.
Tell the sales consultant something about your current mattress, its foundation and feel. If you have been uncomfortable on that then you will surely need a change in mattress configuration. Let the sales consultant guide you to what you already have as the total change can result in wrong choice. Now place your pillow on the mattress and lie down in a position you mostly do.
Remember, the modern mattress are zoned to adapt to your body weight
Hence, to get a realistic feel do not try sitting down on a mattress or lying down with your feet to the side.
Lie down on your back or side close your eyes and see if you feel any pressure on
Top or bottom of spine for back sleepers or on the shoulders, hips or thighs if you are a side sleeper
It is important when you lie down your body is in line with the mattress. Any pressure indicates that the mattress is not suitable for you.
Over time this ongoing pressure can result in lower back pain, cervical spine pain, sore shoulders and achy lungs.
So try lying down on different mattresses till you feel there is no pressure.
Remember that new technology beds are packed with different springs and foams to offer you a variety of feels but it’s your body who decides what’s good for you.
A mattress may feel comfortable with your hand but it’s the characteristics of the foam which decides the adaptability of our spinal structure with the mattress.
Gel memory foam – It makes the body sink a little and relieves the pressure from points.
Latex Foam – It offers more reflex and is more suitable for body movements of the mattress.
So try out the mattresses and make a wise decision as it will be responsible for your goodnight’s sleep for years to come. If you are a couple then we will seriously advice you to try the mattress together and select the mattress that suits you both.
We would like to quote words of Joseph Cossman “ “The best bridge between despair and hope is a good night’s sleep” and as Slumberzone promises to you give the best sleep solution.
