It means that you can change the size based on your body weight and sleeping preferences. As dual-sided, it is also accessible in two models such as 7-inch mattress and 9-inch mattress.

Overall this mattress is very good for people who have an average weight ranging between 130 lbs. to 220 lbs. The mattress from Latex for Less might not be a good option for lightweight side sleepers and heavyweight stomach sleepers because it is very thin and it won’t work in either case. For the lightweight, it might be too firm while for the heavyweight it might be too soft.

Sleep On Latex

Sleep on Latex is an excellent option for light and average side and back sleepers.  In most of the cases, the different thickness levels available from the brand are not the best options for heavyweight people.

The lightweight stomach sleepers and heavyweight back sleepers will be the last to benefit from this mattress.  Stomach sleepers belonging to any weight category might not find this mattress very fruitful. If you choose a thicker model then being a heavyweight stomach sleeper you might find Sleep on Latex somewhat beneficial.

Zenhaven

It is the right choice for all the people who belong to the category of average body weight. No matter which sleeping position you prefer, this brand proves to be a good solution. This mattress is also a good option for lightweight side and back sleepers. On the contrary, Zenhaven is not the best choice for people who weigh more than 220 lbs. and regardless of the sleeping position as well.

Zenhaven also comes with multiple firmness levels on both sides it means that you can opt for any one of them based on your preferences or requirements. The medium soft side of the mattress works well if you want more conformity while the firm level will come in handy when you prefer to sleep on your back and are looking for spinal alignment.

What to Consider When Shopping for the Best Mattress for Couples

Support

The best mattress should work hard to provide you with the needed support. When two people are using up the space, it has to work even harder. Support keeps your body in alignment while you sleep. Different types of mattresses have a given weight limit for one or two sleepers.

Many of the manufacturers consider including a pocketed coil system and a solid edge support that keeps couples supported in many different positions. You may not necessarily get more support on a memory foam bed when compared to an innerspring coil mattress.

The more weight the both of you put on the bed, the more supportive it should be. A mattress with excellent support will keep the heavier sleeper from rolling towards the middle, creating a bit of depression forcing the lighter partner to roll towards them. Good support should be provided for at every part of the mattress.

Motion Transfer

Motion transfer refers to the capability of a mattress to absorb motion and keeping it from reaching the other partner. Having good motion transfer is among the important aspects to look into when acquiring a bed for couples.

Without low motion transfer, a lighter partner will find it difficult to sleep. If both of you tend to move frequently at night and are light sleepers, motion transfer needs to be a primary consideration.

The best type of bed to opt for is memory foam if motion transfer is a problem. They are good at absorbing motion and isolating it in one place. This means that one partner can move freely while the other stays asleep.

Other options that offer motion transfer includes hybrid, latex or polymer mattresses. They are slightly improved when compared to the traditional coil beds. They have more bounce and response. They provide you with a bouncy feel and motion isolation at the same time.

Sleeping Hot

There is too much heat dissipated when two people share a bed. The construction and materials used in making of the mattress has everything to do with how it retains and distributes heat.

Some beds feature materials such as cooling gels and breathable layers that are good at absorbing heat enabling the both of you to sleep cooler. Others allow for airflow ensuring that heat escapes from the mattress.

Beds with innersprings tend to sleep the coolest. This is due to the coil support they feature, which allows for ventilation. On the other hand, memory foam beds tend to sleep warm as they trap heat. This can lead to an uncomfortable and restless night.

There are mattresses that feature dual-zone temperature capabilities that provide couples with different temperature preferences to select from. If one partner enjoys a warm bed while the other prefers to sleep cool, temperatures on either side of the bed can be adjusted.

Heavy People

The best mattress for heavy couples should be able to support at least 300 pounds. They come with reinforcements to ensure that it is both comfortable and durable for heavy sleepers. For instance, they have a foundational add-on that provides additional support.

They also have an extra bit of foam at the top giving you a nice plush feel that not only help in relieving pressure points, but also provide a comfortable sleeping experience. These reinforcements may make the bed high, but it will definitely have the feel of a mattress that can support heavy people.

Hybrids are considered the best for heavy people due to high-quality materials and a strong construction. For heavy people, a hybrid mattress with a thickness of 12 inches will provide the needed support. Such couples also tend to require a 4-7 level of firmness on the firmness scale.

Friendly for Sex

It is vital to deliberate on what sex will feel like on your new bed aside from sleeping and sitting. For instance, a memory foam bed may provide you with comfort while sleeping on it, but may not respond to your amorous activities.

Hybrid, innerspring coil and latex mattresses provide better bounce and have quick and better responses and therefore better for sex.  There are a number of features that play vital roles in sex.

For starters, squeaks can be distracting during sex. The bed should be strong enough not to produce any squeaky noises. It should also be thick enough so as to support various movements and still remain comfortable.

The bed should have good support all round and at the edges. Apart from support for sleeping, it ought to be capable of supporting the weight of two adults located at the same place. One with good design and high-quality materials will ensure that it is capable of supporting all the weight.

Comfort Level

Comfort refers to how a bed feels when you lie on it. It is normally rated on a scale of 1 to 10. 1 being the least firm and 10 being the most firm. A firm bed provides resistance while a softer mattress allows for more sinkage.

When it comes to firmness, it is all a matter of preference. The amount of firmness that feels comfortable depends on your height, weight and sleeping positions. If you and your partner have different preferences on firmness, there are beds that provide dual comfort zones and different levels of firmness on either side of the bed.

There are also those made with adaptive foam. This means that it will feel soft when you lie down, but it is still firm underneath. For instance, if you are lighter and require a softer surface while your partner is heavy and requires a firmer surface, the bed will give the both of you a soft feel at the top, but a firmer surface underneath.

Many of the cheaper brands provide a medium to firm level of firmness, which works great for most couples. However, side sleepers may require extra pressure relief and would need a bed on the softer level of firmness.

Budget

Although there are times when the price will not affect quality, it is a possibility that cheaper brands may be of poor quality. They may lack the required pressure relief and durability as compared to the slightly expensive options.

If you and your partner want a good sleep every night, invest in a good quality mattress. Memory foams are more durable and a cheaper option for couples who are looking to buy an affordable bed with finance options.

Latex and hybrid beds are among the expensive option when compared to innerspring and memory foams. If you are not operating on a tighter budget, it will be best to purchase a high-quality bed that will last for longer durations than the cheaper ones that will only cost you more.

Product Quality

A good quality bed will definitely improve your sleep quality. There are a number of features and materials you should look into, which contribute to product quality. For example, wool is naturally flame resistant, hence wool beds do not require added flame retardant treatment.

Beds with added technological features enable you to connect your bed with other devices in your home, like your coffee maker. They also enable you to change the temperature of the side of the bed you are sleeping on.

Some mattresses have a sleep tracker, which can be used to track the partner that slept well. The sensors track individual time slept and respiratory and heart rates.

Healthy Materials

Mattresses are made of quite a number of materials, both synthetic and natural. A good quality sleep has everything to do with the construction of the bed. Healthy materials eliminate any exposure to harsh chemicals that are mostly found in traditional mattresses.

Natural latex beds are made of 100% organic latex. Latex foam is gotten from the sap of rubber trees. It offers some appealing advantages to those who are not allergic to latex. They provide soft firmness without using inner springs. There are some latex mattresses that are certified organic.

Cotton is mostly found in the lightweight mattresses. It is hypoallergenic, but is not resistant to dust mites. Organic cotton is grown without any pesticides. By purchasing a bed made from cotton, you will be making a cleaner, greener choice.

Wool is naturally molded and will wick away any moisture, keeping you comfortable at all times. Though it is also considered as hypoallergenic, individuals sensitive to lanolin may have to avoid it.

When buying a memory foam, ensure it is low in volatile organic compounds to eliminate the problem of off-gassing, which can be a big problem. Most manufacturers will recommend you air out the bed in a ventilated room before using it.

Sizes

Mattresses are sold in different standard sizes, ranging from twin size to California king. There is no doubt that the proper selection for couples is the queen or king size. However, selecting between the two depends on the size of your room, budget, body frame and sleeping preferences.

The queen size 60 inches by 80 inches. This is 5 inches longer and 7 inches wider than the full-size bed. This difference provides added comfort for couples who do not have space for a king size bed.

If budget is not a problem and you have a large sized room, you should select a king-sized mattress. It is 80 inches in length and 76 inches wide. This is almost the same size as putting two twin XL mattresses together. It offers the most personal space for couples who want maximum personal sleeping space and also to share it with pets.

The California king is another alternative. It is 84 inches in length and 72 inches in width. This is 4 inches longer and 4 inches narrower than the king size. Although it is narrower than the king, it still offers couples with an additional 6 inches sleeping width when compared to the queen. It is perfect for taller couples.

Sleep Trial and Warranty

Different mattresses come with different periods of sleep trial with the minimum being 100 days. The sleep trial is a period that allows your body to adjust to the mattress you have bought for you to ensure whether it is the right product for you.

The period enables you to test important aspects. Both of you can try out the level of firmness to determine if it provides the required level of support for neutral spinal alignment and pressure relief no matter your sleeping position, body type or weight.

The period also enables you to try out your amorous activities and determine if it has great bounce and instant response.  You will also get experience edge support, which plays a role in the sex performance. You will also be able to conclude whether the bed has little motion transfer which is a benefit to the both of you.

Any newly purchased mattress has a warranty. The actual warranty provided depends on a number of factors. The factors are decided by the manufacturer and normally coincide with materials, price and average wear. A bed that comes with a warranty enables you to be provided with a refund in case of defects.

Summary

Choosing the best mattress for couples may not be as easy as most people would imagine. This is something that we found out during our research. Debatably, the most important consideration is a mutual comfort, which may not be easy for the two of you to decide on.

The very first point of contention is the ideal firmness of the bed. This is essential for couples, because two people of different shapes and sizes may not be able to sleep on the same surface and both be as comfortable as they should be to achieve the best possible sleep.

If the two of you cannot agree on a single comfort level/firmness setting, then you may feel most comfortable on a dual firmness or customizable mattress. This patented feature is a significant contributor to improved sleep quality.

The second most important concern is motion transfer. Many couples can easily be awakened due to movement or noise. This is a common experience if one partner has a tendency of tossing and turning during sleep. For this particular problem, you should select a mattress with superior motion isolation and produces little noise if any.

Couples who sleep hot should be choosier. You may find the perfect mattress that meets all your expectations, but sleeps hot. In this case, you should choose a mattress that comes with advanced cooling properties for superior airflow and breathability.

Are you sexually active couples? Then, it goes without saying that you need a mattress with more bounce and responsiveness to accommodate those vigorous positions. The perfect choice should have unmatched edge support, allowing you to make good use of the entire surface.

Another important factor that every couple should consider when shopping for a mattress is a sleep trial. Supposedly, you may have found all the features you are looking for in a given model, but you will know for sure once you have put it to test for at least 100 nights or more.

Babies grow, and there will reach a time when they have to graduate from a baby cot to a more supportive bed. This is so, since children grow constantly, both physically and mentally, and their brains and the entire body develop most rapidly at night.

The better your kid’s sleep is, the better yours will be. You can only achieve this if you get him or her the best mattress for kids. The best pick should be durable, comfortable, and guaranteed not to aggravate allergies or any other sensitivities.

Picking a high performing mattress for your kid is very important. However, the range of choices can be mystifying, especially with the numerous models in today’s market. To help you improve the sleep of your kid, we have selected top 5 products the market has to offer.

What to Consider Before Buying the Best Kids Mattress

You kid can only get the ideal amount of sleep if and only if you choose a mattress that meets his or her criteria. You need a mattress that you can trust with your child’s growing spinal column and physical and mental growth.

Here are the most important things we urge you to consider:

Age

Age is a very important consideration. Boys mostly experience growth spurts from the ages of ten to fifteen, while girls undergo major growth changes from the ages of eight to thirteen. If your kid is approaching an age of significant growth, then you should opt for a longer mattress.

Alternatively, you can consider a fitting mattress to cut on cost. However, you should prepare yourself to make the necessary upgrades when your child outgrows the cheaper fitting mattress. In most cases, this is not a reliable choice for parents on a budget.

Size

Once you have considered your child’s age, the next important factor to consider is size. Your child is growing, and it will reach a time when he or she will grow too big for the mattress. Therefore, you may want to settle for a spacious option.

You have three amazing choices as far as your child’s mattress size is concerned: Twin, Twin XL, and Full. These three sizes can comfortably accommodate your kid during his or her growing years, saving a significant amount of money in the long run.

The twin size is the most popular choice for kids, and normally the most cost-effective option. A standard twin mattress measures 39 by 75 inches. This is a good choice for lighter and smaller kids, especially middle school children. It is also the ideal choice for tight spaces and bunk beds.

The twin XL is a less popular choice, but a great one for fast growing kids. It is usually 5 inches longer than the twin bed. This is particularly an outstanding choice for taller kids. It does also save on space. When compared to the twin, the twin XL is a better investment.

If your child’s room has adequate space, you should consider a full or double mattress. It measures the same length as a twin size, but it is 15 inches wider than a twin or a twin XL. This option allows enough room for your child to grow, but may not be ideal for taller kids.

Mattress Size Dimension (inches) Who is Suitable?
Twin 39 x 75 Younger & Middle School Kids
Twin XL 39 x 80 Fast Growing Kids, Taller Kids & Teenagers
Full 54 x 75 Any Age and Allows for Enough Room to Grow

Support

Support is a key buying point when shopping for the best mattress for kids. Normally, support indicates how well a given mattress can maintain an even, flat sleeping surface to allow for proper spinal alignment and bone health for your child.

A growing child requires optimal support, especially around his or her spine.  We strongly advise you to settle for a mattress that will provide unquestionable support. Mark you, a too soft or too firm bed is unsupportive for most kids. 

In this case, the best mattress is one that features comfort zones that match your child’s body shape and promote restful, therapeutic sleep. Traditional mattresses provide a flat sleep surface, supporting your child’s body at the shoulders, the hip, and the heels.

This leaves your kid’s lower back and legs unsupported and hinders proper circulation. In light of this, you need to choose a mattress that holds your child’s body in a neutral posture and redistributes pressure during sleep.

Sleeping Positions

Kids who sleep mostly on their backs are less restricted as far as choosing a mattress firmness is concerned.  Luxury firmness may be ideal for their growing spinal column. Side sleepers may be most comfortable on relatively soft mattresses. 

A firmer bed may not be the best choice for side sleeping children, since it does not provide the ideal sinkage for proper contouring and alignment. On the other hand, a medium firm to firm mattress may be ideal for stomach sleepers.

Materials

As a parent, you have to consider an organic mattress for your kid. Healthy sleep is critical for your kid’s wellbeing. Kids sleep a lot, so they come into direct contact with mattress materials most of the time.

Therefore, the mattress materials should be organic, non-toxic, and safe. The developing toxin elimination systems and fragile organs of your child are susceptible to the toxins released by unsafe mattress materials.

When sleeping, your kid’s body strive to recuperate from stress and toxin accumulation from his or her day. The body attempts to get rid of toxins and regenerate body cells. Therefore, introducing more toxins during his or her sleep may interfere with these processes.

The best mattress materials should not release harmful chemicals, such as flame retardants, phthalates, VOCs, polyurethane, or any other fumes.  You can ensure that the foam mattress you are buying for your kid is organic by buying CertiPUR-US certified models .

Firmness

The mattress market is filled with different firmness choices, from very soft to very firm. Every child has a different firmness preference. Although, the most popular firmness option is medium firm.

As a parent, you should know that kids who weigh less than one hundred pounds tend to favor soft to medium firmness, while heavier kids normally prefer beds that have a firmness setting of medium to firm.

Generally, children need a firmness that promotes proper postural alignment. A bed that is too soft might cause improper spinal alignment, causing back and posture problems. Therefore, the ideal choice should be cushion firm or medium firm.

The bed has to be firm and supportive, but with adequate cushioning for comfort. You should also know that proper postural alignment is not mainly determined by the firmness, you also need to choose a bed that will distribute the weight of your child evenly.

As your kid grows, he or she may start to favor a softer mattress. In our opinion, we advise you to start with a firm and supportive mattress. You can buy a soft topper for the bed as your kid grows older. You can easily make a firm bed softer, but not the other way around.

Anti-bounce

Are you concerned about your kid bouncing on his or her bed? Are you worried he or she is going to get hurt? If you are, then you need to select a mattress made of latex and/or foam with soft to medium firmness. Also, the bed should not be made of spring components.

Sleeping Hot

Sleeping hot is a major concern when dealing with polyfoam and memory foam mattress. However, innersprings and hybrids with thick foam layers may sleep hot. Temperature neutrality is a very important consideration, especially for children who are hot sleepers.

Consider a mattress that has superior cooling properties. The best mattress for kids that sleeps cool is integrated with unique cooling technologies for better airflow and breathability, such as gel-infused(or copper-infused) foam or open-cell structure.

Off-Gassing

This refers to the harmful odors released by mattresses made of synthetic materials, including PVS and vinyl. In most cases, off-gassing is easily detected during unboxing. However, there are some situations when off-gassing may go unnoticed, especially when it occurs in minute amounts.

 Some off-gassing may be safe after the mattress is exposed to fresh air after a day or two. However, exposure to some off-gassing has been associated with skin irritations, headaches, forgetfulness, asthma attacks, allergic reactions, dizziness, coughing, and fatigue. 

With that said, there is absolutely no reason for you to risk the health of your child. Instead, you should consider buying a mattress that is made of materials that are CertiPUR-US certified or made purely of green materials.

The Energex foam is a very exciting tech that does also assimilate the response of latex. The top layer molds well to fit the body of your kid. Not to mention that it bounces back very well. The Energex foam allows your kid to enjoy superior conformance without a stuck feel.

The bottom layer is made up of 5 inches of edge support base foam. This thick foundation provides the much needed support for a fast growing kid. As you kid grows and adds weight, the bottom layer provides superior support to prevent the sleeper from sinking.

It offers the perfect feeling for a kid transitioning from a crib or toddler mattress. The mattress holds very well in response to growth. The firm feel offers ideal support for your kid’s back, while the Energex foam layer provides good cushioning for pressure relief.

Beneath the Euro pillow top cover lies a skinny high quality foam designed with your kid’s growing body in mind. This thin layer provides extra pressure relief and at the same time reducing your kid’s back tension and stress.

Did you know, 93% of Americans is crucial for good night’s sleep? Despite the widespread problem with sleep, people don’t take the issue seriously. They are only willing to invest in a low-quality mattress thinking that they need a surface to crash. In another study, over 70% of the respondents said that insomnia symptoms prevail for over a year. The most significant reason for this is people don’t get enough sleep per day. Now, there are plenty of reasons behind it, and the most common is their sleeping surface.

A scientific study research revealed that purchasing a new mattress would significantly improve sleep quality and reduce back pain. Do you think purchasing a new mattress would cost you a fortune? Don’t worry, buying a good quality mattress doesn’t mean that you have to break your wallet in half to get one.

We have developed this post for your assistance and chosen top 5 best mattresses for the money.

So, let’s get cracking!

Types of mattresses and their costs

Price is usually attributed to the type of the mattress. In general terms, memory foam mattresses and innersprings are less expensive as compared to the hybrids and latex mattresses.

Let’s have a look at each of the mattress type and how they are priced.

Properties Innerspring Memory Foam Latex Hybrid
Average Queen size price ($) 700 – 1200 600 – 2000 1500 – 2500 1200 – 2500
Responsiveness Very Good Fair Good Fair
Comfort Fair Very Good Good Very Good
Discretion Fair Very Good Average Good
Durability Fair Very Good Very Good Good
Rotation Very Good Good Very Good Good
Edge support Very Good Fair Good Very Good
Overall supportiveness Good Good Good Very Good
Conformance Fair Very Good Very Good Good
Overall performance Average Very Good Very Good Good
Best Models Our Choice Our Choice Our Choice Our Choice

Innersprings

These mattresses are the most common among all types, and they comprise two-thirds of the overall sale of the mattress industry. Innersprings are named after the steel springs that are present in the support core.

The 2-inch thick comfort layers of the innersprings have single or double layers of polyurethane foam. However, you need to understand the fact that any mattresses that have such a layer with more than 2-inch of thickness, will become a hybrid.

The support core of innerspring mattresses has springs in them that evenly distribute the body weight of the sleepers. Low-gauged Springs offer improved lifespan. There are different types of springs used in innersprings construction.

These types include Bonnell, continuous, offset and pocketed coils. The innersprings with Bonnell and continuous coils come at a low price while the innersprings with offset and pocketed coils are expensive. Innerspring average prices range from $700 to $1200.

Memory foams

In the recent past, memory foam has gained popularity because it provides that hug-like feel that most people prefer. It is also called viscoelastic polyurethane foam that closely conforms to the shape of the sleeper.

It is an excellent option for adequate pressure relief and spinal alignment. The comfort layer of this mattress has a single layer of either gel or copper infused foam or plant-extract foam. Some manufacturers also add a polyfoam layer as well.

The support core of a memory foam mattress has highly dense polyurethane foam. In this case, the density of the foam can influence price. Foam density is measured regarding PCF (pounds per cubic feet). Anything under 3.9 PCF will be low on density, and it retains its original shape very quickly.

It won’t offer much pressure relief or motion isolation. Such a mattress will not be expensive. A density that ranges between 4 PCF and 5.9 PCF is considered to be medium and offers a moderate level of pressure relief and motion isolation.

Anything over 6 PCF is considered to be highly dense, and it becomes very expensive as well. It tends to retain its shape slowly but offers excellent motion isolation and pressure relief. Memory foam average prices range from $600 to $2000.

Latex

Latex derived from a rubber tree is the natural form of latex whereas the synthetic latex is derived from petrochemicals. Latex is derived using two different techniques. One is Dunlop while the other one is Talalay. Dunlop has a heterogeneous consistency which is heavy at the bottom while Talalay has more uniformity in it.

Latex conforms very well and offers excellent pressure relief which makes it a good competitor of memory foam. An added advantage of latex over memory foam is that it is highly durable. The comfort layer of a latex mattress must have at least 2-inch of latex to make it a latex mattress.

There are two pricing factors here. Talalay is more expensive than Dunlop while natural latex costs more than synthetic and blended latex. The average price of latex mattresses ranges from $1500 to $2500.

Hybrids

Hybrids are the most recent creation of innovation in the mattress world. The either have two layers of memory foam or latex in comfort layer and have coiled support core. Most of the users consider hybrids offer the best of both worlds: conformance and support of memory foam or latex and responsiveness and breathability of innersprings.

The comfort layer of hybrid mattresses may have latex or memory foam. Some models also come with polyurethane foam or microcoils as well. The support core has pocketed coils along with polyurethane foam as a base layer.

Hybrids with multiple layers in the comfort system are pricey. The models with pillow-top have additional padding and come at an even higher price. However, pillow top models tend to sleep hot, and they are not durable either. The price range of a hybrid is $1200 to $2200.

Critical factors associated with the matter of selecting affordable mattresses

You need to find the best mattress that not only comes at a reasonable price but also caters to all your needs and preferences. There are some critical factors that you must consider, and they are listed as follows:

Firmness

  • Best: Latex
  • Good: Hybrid
  • Average: Memory Foam
  • Worst: Innerspring

It is the soft/firm feel of the materials present in the comfort layer of a mattress. A comfort layer is a topmost layer which your body feels as soon as you lie on a mattress. There is no firmness rating that is considered to be correct because it depends upon the preferences and linking of individual sleepers.

Some people might prefer to sleep on a stiff surface while others prefer to sink into a soft surface. Most of the sleepers prefer the medium-firm feel. Therefore you need to judge yourself, which is the best-suited firmness level for your body. Some brands also offer dual firmness which is ideal for couples(Like Morphiis). Some brands even offer flappable mattresses (Like Layla) with different firmness levels on either side.

Supportiveness

  • Best: Latex
  • Good: Hybrid
  • Average: innerspring
  • Worst: Foam

The firmness level is directly linked with the comfort layer of a mattress. The support is directly associated with the support core of a mattress. A support core is present right under the comfort layer. A mattress that is highly supportive maintains a highly leveled surface which will keep your spine aligned and straight. The mattress that sags from the middle doesn’t offer any support. Such a mattress can cause neck, shoulder and back pains due to undue strain on the body.

Conformance

  • Best: Hybrid
  • Good: Foam
  • Average: Latex
  • Worst: Innerspring

Conformance is also known as pressure relief. The mattresses made of latex and memory foam are made in a way to develop a cradled impression around the body of the sleeper. It is known as contouring, the way a mattress envelopes your body.

The contouring can work on the pressure points near your spine especially in the case of side sleepers. Innersprings don’t conform as much as latex and foams do hence, they don’t offer much pressure relief. If you have problems associated with pressure points, then you need a mattress that closely conforms.

Longevity or durability

  • Best: Latex
  • Good: Foam
  • Above average: Hybrid
  • Worst: Innerspring

The average lifespan of a mattress ranges from seven to eight year. Innersprings and memory foams have a much shorter lifespan than that. These mattresses are prone to indentation and sagging from the middle with the passage of time.

Hybrid and latex mattresses can last up to nine or ten years if you maintain them adequately. Some new brands claim that their mattresses are highly durable, but they don’t have enough credibility regarding years of service to back up their claims.

Edge-to-edge support

  • Best: Innerspring
  • Good: Hybrid
  • Average: Latex
  • Worst: Foam

Hybrids and innersprings come reinforced with highly dense polyurethane foam on the whole support core perimeter of the mattress. This polyfoam perimeter prevents sinkage on the edges where you sit or get out of the bed after a nap. The foam or latex mattresses don’t get this reinforcement, and for this reason, they are not useful in providing edge-to-edge support.

Motion transferability

  • Best: Innerspring
  • Good: Hybrid
  • Average: Latex
  • Worst: Foam

Foam or latex mattresses absorb motions caused by movement of the sleepers. They isolate movement into the confined regions and considerably reduce disruptions during nighttime caused by rotations or someone getting out of the bed. It is an excellent feature for the couples. On the other hand, innersprings and hybrids also offer good motion isolation.

Temperature regulation

  • Best: Innerspring
  • Good: Hybrid
  • Average: Latex
  • Worst: Foam

Materials used in the memory foam don’t absorb a right amount of the heat from the body which makes the sleeping surface highly uncomfortable. On the other hand, hybrids, latex, and innersprings don’t sleep hot because they dissipate heat from the body. If you sleep hot then should avoid buying memory foam. However, if you prefer the contouring support of memory foam then go for a gel-infused version which will not sleep hot.

Responsiveness

  • Best: Innerspring
  • Good: Hybrid
  • Average: Latex
  • Worst: Foam

Mattresses that come with a very responsive surface include hybrids and innersprings. These two mattresses are good for sex. Latex and memory foams don’t respond as quickly and will cause a sinking sensation during your intimate moments.

Noise

  • Best: Foam
  • Good: Latex
  • Above average: Hybrid
  • Worst: Innerspring

Hybrids and innersprings tend to be very noisy after some time because they have metal components in them. On the other hand, latex and memory foam mattresses don’t make any noise when they are bearing the weight of the sleepers. So, if you are looking for a silent mattress then go for latex or memory foam.

Body weight

If you weigh between 130lbs and 220lbs, then you have average weight. Anything under 130lbs and you fall in the lightweight category, and anything over 220lbs will make you a heavyweight. People who have average weight or lightweight prefer mattresses that have a soft or medium feel.

A firm mattress will not provide enough pressure relief and conformance. Heavyweight people should opt for a mattress with a firm feel or medium-firm. A soft mattress won’t be able to produce enough support for the bulky body which will add to pressure and pain.

According to the National Sleep Foundation’s study, more than 25% of Americans have sleep disorders. Out of them, about 6% – 10% suffer from insomnia. More than 70% of the respondents have reported that the symptoms of insomnia continue to prevail for more than a year. The primary cause is that people don’t get enough sleep and there are plenty of reasons behind it. The most common reason is their sleeping surface.

By purchasing a good quality hybrid mattress, you are spending money on your excellent mental and physical health. A study reveals that replacement of old mattress with new hybrid mattress would reduce the exposure to dust mites drastically.

Hybrid mattresses are good for people who want extra support and conformance along with excellent responsiveness. In addition, hybrid mattresses can handle pressure points and keep the spine properly aligned.

We’re here to help, we want to guide you step by step to choose the best hybrid mattress within your budget/based on your behavior. But you know, if you’re in hurry, you can jump to our top 5 choices directly.

What’s a Hybrid?

A hybrid mattress comes with a support core made of pocketed coils just like the innerspring with a combination of comfort layer of the mattress made with at least 2-inch thick latex or memory foam layer or both and finally a firm base layer(Know more detail). This combination should offer excellent responsiveness and support while the comfort layer provides exceptional conformance that targets pressure points and provides relief.

Hybrids overcome the weakness of innersprings to reduce motion transferability. Furthermore, hybrids are also better than memory foam and latex because they sleep cool (Know more detail). However, there are a couple of drawbacks as well. Hybrids are very expensive and bulky mattresses. Some hybrids also have an issue of off-gassing.

Different versions of hybrid

Primarily, a hybrid mattress has a comfort layer of memory foam or latex and support the core of coils. However, with the passage of time, innovation has changed this design, and in the recent times, manufacturers have been experimenting with different materials and additions.

The support core has stayed with the coil system. These coils are pocketed in cloth or fabric, and a base foam layer is located at the bottom to provide the mattress with additional stability. The material used for the construction of this base layer is polyfoam or polyurethane foam.

True Hybrid

According to the definition,  the comfort layer must have 2-inch thick latex or memory foam for a mattress to be called a true hybrid . However, different manufacturers opt for different ratios. Some of them might reinforce the comfort layer with gel-infusion to improve heat retention while others choose for copper infusion for this purpose.

Semi Hybrid

These days, manufacturers also add another layer to the design construction of their hybrid. This extra layer is either Euro top or pillow top (know the difference) layer right on top of the comfort layer. The layer is made of wool, fiberfill or cotton and additional memory foam, latex or polyurethane foam might also be added here. These mattresses are known as semi-hybrids.

Foam Hybrid

All models of hybrid mattresses don’t come with innerspring units. There are a number of manufacturers who use polyurethane foam as well. Foams have different types and each one of them has its unique features and functionalities. A foam hybrid has a firm base layer made of foam instead of the innersprings. The in most cases the comfort layer has gel infused memory foam while the support layer features high-density polyurethane foam. Some manufacturers also add additional foam layers for improved support.

What type of hybrid mattress should you opt?

Who should opt for a True-hybrid mattress?

You should go through the below-mentioned indicators and assess whether it is the right option for you or not:

  • You must understand the fundamental purpose of a true-hybrid because it doesn’t come cheap. You don’t want to invest needlessly in a mattress that doesn’t fulfill your needs.
  • A True-hybrid mattress will be suitable for you if you are fond of breakthrough innovations.
  • It is right for you if you prefer the conformance of memory foam but and also wants to sleep cool.
  • True-hybrid is the way to go if you have tried memory foam, latex, and innerspring and didn’t find comfortable sleep on any of them.
  • If you’re ready to replace your mattress within the next 7 years.

Who should opt for a Foam-hybrid mattress?

  • If you are looking for a sleep surface that works on those pressure points and provide relief.
  • It will be a better option for you if you are looking for overall comfort and support.

You should opt for a Semi-hybrid If you

  • Enjoy sleeping on a plush surface with a cloud-like a feel.
  • Share a bed with your partner and want reduced motion isolation.
  • Are looking to buy a hybrid mattress but don’t want to spend under budget.
  • Want efficient contour as compared to the innerspring mattress.
  • Like the bounce.

How to assess the durability of a hybrid mattress?

Hybrid mattresses come with impressive warranties as well as sleep trials. However, the question that comes to mind is that hybrids haven’t been on the market for a long time and facts do not back their extended warranties. So how are they so confident about their mattresses?

There is one specification that you can closely monitor when buying your favorite hybrid i.e. density. The foam layers and their densities that you will come across during your search include:

  • High-density polyurethane foam (1.5 to 2.5 lb/cu. ft.)
  • Memory foam (3.5 to 4.0 lb/cu. ft.)
  • Latex (3.75 to 5.9 lb/cu. ft.)
 Keep in mind that polyurethane foam layer in the upper section of the comfort layer of a mattress is a warning sign. This material is not known for high longevity and durability.   On the other hand, memory foam and latex have a much more proven track record. If a hybrid is priced too low then keep in mind that the densities of its layers are far less than the industry standards. Therefore, it’s better to ignore such hybrid options. 

How to Find a Hybrid That Sleeps Cool

When you sleep, your body temperature needs to cool down. It enables you to attain the deep sleep mode which initiates the restorative process. Now there are different types of hybrids available in the market and they all have their unique traits. You need to choose one of them according to your budget and requirements.

Latex

Latex hybrids come with holes within the construction. These layers enhance proper aeration. If the materials involve natural latex then it is the best option for you because it doesn’t has any harmful chemicals or hazardous substances. Latex is a good option if you consider durability as an important factor. The holes in the layer enable the layer to disperse heat from your body elsewhere.

Gel foam

Gel foam is excellent when it comes to temperature regulation because it has a tendency to dissipate heat. Furthermore, the gel beads are capable of absorbing the heat from your body very similar to water. However, their capability of absorbing heat is limited and once that limit is reached, the mattress will start to warm up like memory foam. You must look for a mattress that has gel infusion instead of the beads. Infused gel offers improved heat retention for longer periods.

Memory foam

It doesn’t come with a good reputation when we talk about temperature neutrality. Most of the users complain about sleeping hot when using memory foam. It is associated more with the conventional memory foam type. The latest versions of memory foam also feature various properties to retain heat and enable you to sleep cool. Copper-infused memory foam is one good example of such a product as Layla. Copper has a natural tendency to absorb heat and its infusion in the mattress layer will allow you to enjoy a deep sleep comfort throughout the night.

The Feel of a Hybrid Construction

Conforming yet responsive

Hybrids are highly responsive because of their pocketed coils in support core. In this area, hybrids perform just like innersprings. It means that hybrids are good for sex. In addition to that hybrids also offer excellent conformance and pressure point relief as they envelop your body better than average.

Motion transferability

Hybrids take the lead over innerspring when it comes to motion isolation. Hybrids are good at reducing the number of nighttime sleep disruption when one individual rotates and disturb the other one in the bed(But still not as awesome as memory foam).

Temperature regulation

Hybrids have a good deal of air circulation in their support core due to the coil system. This system allows sleeping cooler as compared to latex and foam mattresses. Nevertheless, the air circulation is affected by the memory foam or latex comfort layer because of their heat retentions capabilities.

If you get your hands on a mattress that is adequately combined, then you will stay cool on a hybrid. Most people prefer to sleep on memory foam, but it doesn’t have much heat retentions properties. Therefore, you need a hybrid that will enable you to sleep cool.

Low noise

The pocketed coils produce low noise as compared to different mattress springs. However, you might hear a few creaks and squeaks time and time again.

Firmness

The hybrid mattress offers medium-firmness which is one of the most critical aspects of the mattress. According to an estimate, approximately 80% of the Americans prefer to sleep on medium-firm mattresses. A preferred level of firmness is identified by specific preferences and requirements associated with sleep patterns along with the physical traits of a sleeper.

Average Cost of a Hybrid mattress

Mattress type Price $
Natural latex 2000 – 4000
Airbed 600 – 2000
Memory foam 1000 – 5000
Synthetic and blended latex 1000 – 3000
Hybrid 1000 – 3000
Innerspring 600 – 2000

When it comes to cost, you can expect to pay a lot more for your hybrid as compared to any memory foam or innerspring mattress. A new high-quality hybrid will fall in between $1000 and $3000. The luxury versions can go all the way up to $4500(We don’t recommend for most family).

But there’re still some cheaper model, like Gramercy Euro-Top from Classic Brands ,if you’re on a budget, you can consider this mode.

Level Sleep is known in the industry for its science-based sleep products. These products are clinically proven and patented. Level sleep mattress technology and construction have gained many positive reviews from the research of leading experts from the Human Performance Center at UCSF as well as from the Director of Center of Human Sleep Research in the University of Stanford.

Level Sleep’s TriSupport mattress is one of these products that is specially designed for taking care of your backaches for good. TriSupport features 3-zones to support the body weight and curves with 3 unique sleeping surfaces.

TriSupport Technology Level Sleep Provided

A study, approved by IRB and designed by Dr. Clete Kushida, found that the TriSupport mattress has shown many positive trends. These include:

  • 56% reduction in pain,
  • 35% reduced tossing and turning,
  • 56% reduced time taken to fall asleep and
  • 43% lowered fatigue in the participants of the study.
  • 54% reduction in stiffness.
  • 62.5% improvement in daily working due to sleepiness.
  • 60% Increase in overall sleep satisfaction.

The TriSupport technology joins lumbar support with soft hip and shoulder zones. This design keeps your body and spine aligned and provides you with a comfortable yet supportive sleep surface. This construction is suitable for both back and side sleepers.

Property Rating Description
Longevity Good The highly dense layers of the TriSupport mattress don’t degrade over time due to normal wear and tear.
Motion Transferability Very Good TriSupport mattress can absorb and reduce motion. It curbs nighttime disruptions caused by tossing and turning.
Edge-to-Edge Support Fair It comes with dense layers so for the time being it will provide a good degree of edge support. However, it will reduce overtime.
Conformance Very Good It comes with dual polyfoam layers that provide close conformance.
Pressure Relief Excellent The three different section of the comfort layer along with the base layer does a great job to provide excellent pressure relief for your entire body.
Spinal Alignment Excellent As the mattress works on different pressure points it also works on keeping your spine in its natural position.
Temperature Regulation Fair The TriSupport is an all-foam mattress and for this reason, it is not that great when it comes to temperature neutrality. Especailly for the big guy.
Noise Excellent The all-foam construction does not have any metal components and therefore, it doesn’t make any noise.
Off-gassing Good The off-gassing issue is present only for a few hours when you unpack your mattress. After that, the odor just fades away.
Responsiveness Fair TriSupport like all other foam models is not as responsive as couples would prefer.

How TriSupport mattress goes with different sleeping positions and body weight?

When you are looking for a mattress for yourself, then you must consider your sleeping position and body weight before you finalize your decision.

Stomach sleepers

TriSupport is  not the best option for people who sleep on their stomachs  because it is firm in the midsection. Keeping your belly on a firm surface for too long might initiate pain. Furthermore, the soft top section doesn’t provide an ideal sleeping platform for your neck when you sleep on your back. However, if you weigh more than 220lbs. the firm midsection will prove to be beneficial for you.

Back sleepers

TriSupport is  best suited for back sleepers  because this is the position that needs an adequate combination of conformance and support. However, being a heavyweight, you must think about your neck and must use a pillow top as well to prevent neck aches.

Side sleepers

Being a side sleeper, you must understand that pressure points have a significant role to play when you sleep on your side. It is where the TriSupport mattress different firmness comes in to play its part. The different firmness at shoulder, lumbar and hips makes sure that your body feels relaxed and comfortable during the sleep. Heavyweight people must use a pillow top as well.

3-inch Performance Layer Level-Soft Foam(The Shoulder Zone)
Level-Firm Foam (The Lumbar Zone)
Level-Medium Foam (The Hip Zone)
7-inch Base Layer Polyurethane Foam (High Resilience)

The design and construction of Level Sleep’s TriSupport mattress specifically focus on back pain and restlessness caused by pressure points. The mattress combines soft and medium-firm mattresses for the shoulder and hip zones of your body and works on the pressure points.

The firm lumbar support keeps your spine aligned and adequately positioned throughout the night whether you sleep on your back or side.

Firmness of level sleep

The Cover

The cover of TriSupport mattress is made of top quality 4-way stretch polyester. This fabric feels rich and is highly durable. This cover also protects the mattress from developing any mold or dust and mites.

In addition to the comfort and durability that it offers,  the fabric is highly breathable . It means that you won’t feel hot while you are sleeping in this mattress.

The Comfort Layer

Level Sleep has named the comfort layer of its TriSupport mattress as Performance Layer. This 3-inch layer is divided into three different sections.

  • At the top end, there is a LEVELsoft™ Foam. The cushiony and soft foam used in this section absorbs the pressure of your shoulder and provides excellent relief from pain.
  • The bottom section of the Performance Layer is made of LEVELmid™ Foam. This section keeps the pressures from your hips and keeps your spine aligned from the bottom. The section works on hip and reduces the pressure points that cause pain.
  • The midsection of this mattress is made of LEVELfirm™ Foam. This section is made of a firm foam because it provides lumbar support and reduces backaches whether you sleep on your side or back.

The Support Core

The construction of the support core is straightforward. The base layer is comprised of one-piece 7-inch highly-resilient Poly Urethane foam. The base layer of TriSupport mattress is very breathable and sturdy. The durable base layer provides extraordinary support to the comfort layer. Moreover, it also serves to be a remarkable foundation on all types of flat surfaces.

Thickness

TriSupport mattress from Level Sleep comes with a 10-inch width. The comfort layer is 3-inch thick while the support core is 7-inch thick. The comfort layer of Level Sleep Standard mattress is made of polyurethane foam. The thickness of the base layer provides excellent support to the comfort layer and enables it to perform its function adequately.

Support And Comfort

Edge Support

It is one area where Level Sleep mattress lags behind.  Due to all-foam construction, the TriSupport mattress doesn’t provide good enough edge support . It means that sitting on the edges is something that you should avoid, especially for the big guy.

Frequently using the edges will also adversely affect the shape of the mattress in the long run. However, the thick base layer does get the job done while handling pressure at the edge up to some extent.

Firmness level

The comfort layer of the TriSupport mattress from Level Sleep offers three different levels of firmness. Instead of the conventional layered-firmness, TriSupport mattress comes with sectioned-firmness.

It means the same 3-inch layer has different sections with different firmness levels. Each section has a different firmness level and provides different support and conformance according to the shape of your body which helps in reducing pressure points.

The top section of the comfort layer is soft, and it absorbs pressure from your shoulders and prevents shoulder pains. The midsection is firm, and it provides extra support to your lumbar and prevents backaches. The bottom section is medium firm to handle pressure points in your hip regions and prevent pains.

Comfort

The TriSupport is all about comfort. It ensures that your entire body feels relaxed when you lie on your bed. The mattress handles the pressure points and provides support to your lumbar.

It means that you will not develop any back, neck or shoulder pains at all which ultimately results in a more comfortable rest and you will get up in the morning as fresh as ever.

In addition to that, all the mattress layers along with the cover are highly breathable which means that you will not sleep hot in your TriSupport mattress.

Sleeping hot and not having enough pressure relief are the two primary reasons why people don’t get a good night’s sleep. TriSupport mattress addresses both these issues, and for this reason, it has been clinically approved by many doctors and medical professionals.

Motion Transferability

TriSupport mattress handles motion transferability very well. Mostly, the credit goes to the all-foam construction. Polyfoam tends to work well for motion isolation and TriSupport is no different either.

The mattress is an excellent choice for couples because if one partner moves a lot during the night, the other one won’t get disturbed due to the movement.

Temperature Neutrality

We live in a drug culture. Over the counter and prescription medications are taken for practically every minor symptom we experience, including our moods and, of course, insomnia. Herbal remedies are also very popular, particularly for sleep.

While these options may be tempting, they do not treat the root of the problem. So, you will probably find yourself back where you started if you decide to stop taking sleeping aids. And because sleeping pills can affect your sleep style, they may actually exacerbate your sleep problem.

In addition, they can impair your daytime functioning, and regular use of sedative-hypnotic often leads to dependency. Although sleep aids can be helpful on a short-term basis when you are experiencing excessive stress, they are not a good long-term solution.

Fortunately,  you can learn drug-free ways to sleep better at night without putting your life and the well-being of your family in jeopardy . Before we tell you how to deal with insomnia without sleeping pills, we first want to tell you the risks involved with sleep medications.

What Researchers Say About Sleeping Pills

 Sleeping pills are dangerous! If you have trouble sleeping, sleeping pills are not the answer . Unfortunately, some people are so desperate that they resort to taking any of the long list of pharmaceuticals in an effort to help them to get a good night’s sleep.

Regrettably, these helpers are available with a long list of associated dangers, including addiction. And that list of dangers just got longer. Research has proven that the use of sleeping pills has been associated with an increased risk of cancer and death.

The most troubling part of research is that it is  not just daily users who are at risk, but those who use them less than twice a month are also at risk . It can take a while for the side effects to surface. Therefore, the harm may not be immediately noticeable.

Shocking Findings

Most researchers have found that the more sleeping pills that people take the greater their risk of death from all causes. Shockingly, people who take one to eighteen sleeping pills annually are three and a half times more likely to die within a two and a half year follow-up period.

 If you take nineteen to a hundred and thirty two pills a year, you are four and a half times more likely to die. If you take more than one hundred and thirty three pills a year, you are about five and a half times more likely to die. 

According to studies, the above outcomes do not differ whether you are using earlier versions of sleeping pills or newer ones, which are marketed as being shorter acting and safer. Studies have also found an increased risk for all major cancers.

There is an increased risk of about 20% among any users who take nineteen to a hundred and thirty pills annually. There is also an increased risk of approximately 35% for users who take more than a hundred and thirty two pills a year.

Now, while the aforementioned results do not prove cause and effect; they certainly reveal a very unsettling association. This is very significant because about 10% of the American adult population take sleeping pills. That is quite a significant number of people.

Can an Overdose of Sleeping Pills Kill You?

Basically, most suicidal women use an overdose of sleeping pills as a way of committing suicide. These silent killers act slowly by interfering with body functions. They chemically sooth you to sleep by forcing your body muscles to relax.

Theoretically, an overdose of sleeping pills is supposed to shut down your entire body, including the cardiovascular, the respiratory, and the nervous systems. All of these scenarios would in the long run lead to death.

Thanks to the anesthetic and tranquilizing properties of the medications, an overdose can certainly kill you without agony or pain. This is mainly why sleeping pills overdose is quite popular in suicide cases.

An overdose of sleeping medication does not always lead to death. Most sleeping medications that are strong enough to be used by suicidal people are no longer in the market. However, some fairly high dosage medication might still be available in medical centers for anesthetic use during major surgeries.

According to manufacturers, the sleeping pills that are currently in the market contain milder chemicals that are not potentially lethal compared to sleeping medications that were manufactured some years back.

They claim that the current generation of sleeping pills are purposefully and chemically made to be safer. The main objective of the manufacturers is to make the sleeping medication less potent, so as to ensure that an overdose of sleeping pills seize to be an effective method of committing suicide.

The newer medications might be less potent, but that does not mean that they are safe. Regardless of the milder chemical contents, these pills are still a threat to your life.

Side Effects of Sleeping Pills

Before you die of sleeping pills here are the things that you are likely to experience

In a Short-Term:

  • Drowsiness
  • Dry mouth
  • Sleepwalking
  • Abnormal depression and thoughts
  • Memory loss
  • Anxiety
  • Grogginess
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness

In a Long-Term:

  • Addiction (craving for pills)
  • Depression
  • Vomiting
  • Tremors or shaking
  • Rebound insomnia
  • Nervousness
  • Nausea
  • Stomach cramps
  • Cancer and possibly death

The abovementioned side effects are among the many experiences you will have if you do not keep off sleeping pills. Craving for sleeping medication is the most common problem most people experience. It is not normal for your body to crave for foreign chemicals.

Therefore, if you find your body craving so much for a sleeping medication, then it is a clear sign that you have become addicted. Addiction pushes you closer to death from sleeping pills. When you are addicted, you get to experience both short and long term effects.

In most cases, abuse of sleep medication can induce serious memory loss. This may be followed by slurred speech, a lack of coordination, and inability to focus. All these combined are a recipe for disaster. You might even lose your job because of sleeping pills.

So, What Can You Do To Avoid Sleeping Pills

 There is but one thing to do, exercise sleep hygiene. Try to engage in relaxing activities for at least an hour before bedtime. This means nothing too stimulating, such as working, making phone calls, answering emails, or anything stressful. 

Instead, consider relaxation, exercises, stretching, yoga, deep breathing, engaging in a quiet conversation with a family member or friend, or taking a warm, therapeutic bath. Avoid stimulating, long TV shows or movies that may force you to stay awake.

Basically, you should create a sleep reserve. If getting refreshing sleep is a high priority for you, then you need to take significant actions to treat it as such. The bedroom should be for one thing primarily – sleep.

Get at least one houseplant to improve the air quality in your home, and go from there. The pros of having a houseplant are simply too good to pass up. Just make sure it is something that suits you and not an additional stressor.

If you share a bed with someone else, come up with an agreement to keep office work out of the sleep sanctuary. This is a revered space for both of you, and normally it just takes a heart-to-heart conversation to make sure that everyone is comfortable.

The food that you eat can affectedly influence the quality of sleep you get. Remember, food is not just food, it is information.

And the types of food that you eat, along with the nutrients they contain, automatically spur processes that determine what your body, health, and sleep will look like. The environment in your stomach can either make or break getting a good night’s sleep.

Here are some essential good sleep nutrients you must make sure you are getting on a regular basis: Vitamin B6, melatonin, omega 3S, Vitamin D, calcium, potassium, tryptophan, Vitamin C, and selenium.

It goes without saying that the foods you eat to get these nutrients would ideally be organic and minimally processed (especially after learning what chemical additives can do to your health). All the aforementioned nutrients are incredibly valuable.

In Summary

Life is precious, and staying healthy is the only way you will know how valuable it is to stay hale and hearty. Before you swallow that first sleeping pill, take a good look at your family, and decide whether or not it is worth taking the risk.

Sleeping pills provide the easy way to force a good night’s sleep, but they do not provide a health way to get to sleep. As we earlier mentioned in this post, sleep medication is dangerous. It does not matter whether you are taking nineteen or a hundred pills a year.

The chemicals will still get to you. Death is the ultimate outcome, but before you reach there, you are likely to undergo some serious problems (addiction being one of them). No need to risk your health and the well-being of your family.

If you have a tenacious sleep problem, you should simply consult your physician for a safer evaluation and treatment.

When you are shopping for new bedding for your dreamland, there are plenty of factors that you should consider, and your body weight should be one of those factors. The reason behind that is a mattress designed for heavyweight people doesn’t come with the same characteristics as for regular weight people. There are different design requirements and functionalities of a mattress for heavyweight people.

The most critical fact you need to realize is that whether you are heavyweight or not. People who weigh more than 220 lbs. are considered to be overweight. Surprisingly, more than 50% of the Americans fall in the heavyweight category.

We have developed this post to address the problem of 50% of Americans in deciding what type of mattress is best. We will start with a buying guide, if you’re in a hurry, you can jump to the top 5 list directly.

What We Consider During Testing/Review

You have to be very specific when it comes to purchasing a mattress for heavyweight people. It is critical that you must consider all the aspects before finalizing your decision otherwise you will spend your hard earned money on a wrong option.

Weight and Thickness

Most people overlook the thickness of a mattress when considering an option for heavyweight people. Nevertheless, it has a significant role to play in this scenario. For the people who weigh less than 220 lbs., a mattress with 10-inch thickness is deemed sufficient.

 People who weigh more than 220 lbs. should go for a mattress with 10-inch(or even 12-inch) thickness or more.  A mattress must come with deep compression support. People who weigh more than 220 lbs. (either due to obesity or having a large body size and structure) create more amounts of pressures on the sleeping surface as compared to thin people.

A thin mattress doesn’t meet the performance expectations when it comes to spinal support. The thickness of a mattress needs to be higher for heavier people. Latest mattresses feature advanced foams such as a high-density comfort layer for improvement in compression support.

Therefore, these can work well for heavy people. Nevertheless, it is best to find a mattress with a thick profile more than 10-inch so that it can consistently perform when it comes to spine alignment and support.

The support core or the base layer of the mattress must be around 6-inch in thickness whether it is an innerspring, latex or foam. A person who is light in weight doesn’t need much support, and for this reason, a thick mattress turns out to be a wrong option in this case.

Mattress Thickness Heavy Sleeper > 220 lbs. Light Sleeper > 130lbs.> to < 220lbs. <
6-inch Poor Fair
8-inch Poor to Fair Good
9-inch Fair Good
10-inch Fair to Good Fair to Good
12-inch Good Fair
13-inch or more Excellent Poor to Fair

Shape and Firmness

You can determine the level of firmness of a mattress by knowing what types of sleeper are you. The firmness of a mattress is a very subjective attribute because for every individual the feel of a mattress is different. Some people also confuse firmness with support.

Firmness tells us about the initial feel of a mattress when you sit or lie on it. A very stiff sleeping surface is categorized as ‘firm‘ while a cloud-like feel is termed as ‘soft‘.  Some models also provide a very balanced contour and push-back which means that they are ‘medium‘.

The feel can be different for people with different body weights, and who prefer to sleep in different positions. Therefore, you will find most of the models with firmness score wavering in between 5 and 7 (on a rating scale of 1 – 10). Here, 1 is categorized as ‘softest’ and 10 is categorized as ‘firmest.’

Increased body weight and increased softness will increase the sinkage. Therefore, with increased body weight increase in firmness rating is suitable. People who weigh more than 250 lbs. will experience an additional 1 or 2-inch sinkage. In simple words, a mattress that might feel 8 out of 10 regarding firmness will feel 7 out of 10 for an individual who weighs more than 250 lbs. If you weigh more than 250 lbs., then you should go for a firmness level of 8 out of 10. The rule of thumb is that with increased body weight you should opt for increased firmness level.

For best-suited firmness, you must consider your sleeping position to determine the best firmness level. Heavyweight people who prefer to sleep on their sides should go for 4 to 6 firmness level. The heavyweight people who sleep on their stomach should opt for 5 to 8, and those who like to take a nap on their backs must go for 4 to 8. If you sleep in a combination position, then you should go to a level that caters both locations.

Please refer to the firmness guide chart to calculate your own firmness depending on your body shape and sleeping style:

BODY SHAPE OF THE SLEEPER STOMACH SLEEPER (IDEAL FIRMNESS LEVEL) SIDE SLEEPER IDEAL FIRMNESS LEVEL) BACK SLEEPER (IDEAL FIRMNESS LEVEL)
The waist is wider than shoulders and hips      4.5-6.5
(medium to
medium-firm)
  5.5-6.5
(medium-firm)
  5.5-8.5
(Medium-firm to

Waist, hips, and shoulders are same       5.5-8.5
(Medium-firm to

    5.5-6.5
(medium-firm)
   5.5-8.5
(Medium-firm to

(medium-firm)
            4.5-6.5
(medium to
medium-firm)
            4.5-8.5
(Medium to firm)
Hips are wider than waist and shoulders         55.5-8.5
(Medium-firm to       firm)
    5.5-8.5
(Medium-firm to firm)
4.5-6.5
(Medium to medium-firm)
Shoulders and hips are wider than waist             5.5-6.5
(Medium-firm)
      5.5-8.5
(Medium-firm to firm)
            5.5-8.5
(Medium-firm to         firm)

Density

People who weigh more than 220 lbs. must opt for a mattress that features high-density layers.  When we talk about foam mattresses, 1.8 PCF (per cubic foot) is the minimum density requirement for the support core .

Nevertheless, bear in mind that the density specification doesn’t always come with every model of a mattress. A top quality mattress with high density is considered to be very durable for heavyweight sleepers.

Most health professionals suggest using a hard or firm mattress since the extra firm mattress would conserve lumbar lordosis. The biochemical effect allows the maximum body contact and better spine alignment.

Edge-to-edge support

Edge-to-edge support is another integral component of a mattress that is designed to provide deep sleep for heavyweight people. A firm edge support would give you an additional space when you share the mattress with your partner.

A strong edge support will prevent sagging in the long run, and your mattress won’t collapse if you tend to sleep on the edge of it. The mattresses that have coil over coil, springs or hybrid construction will provide you with the best support. Heavyweight people struggle with foams because they don’t give them enough edge support.

Temperature neutrality

One of the most reported issues by heavyweight sleepers is sleeping hot. You must look for a mattress come with the ability to regulate the temperature of the sleeper by dissipating heat from the body elsewhere.

Temperature neutrality becomes even more important when you share your bed. It will increase the overall heat generated. If your mattress doesn’t regulate the temperature, then you or your partner will wake up from a deep sleep all sticky and sweaty.

You must bear in mind that  most foam mattress sleeps hot as compared to hybrid or spring mattress . Nevertheless, different memory foam models come with advanced cooling gel-infused formulas, open cell structured layers have solved this issue up to a reasonable extent.

Longevity

Many sleepers have reported that there is a direct relationship between the durability of a mattress and the body weight of the sleeper. Hence, heavyweight people should emphasize the longevity of a mattress.

Heavyweight people should consider innersprings and hybrids since they are rated the best when it comes to lifting weight and offering durability through its interrelated coil structure. In an innerspring mattress, high coil count refers to high density and strength. An 800 or more coil count is best suited to start with.

Longevity

The satisfaction ratings

The general customer satisfaction scores or ratings determined for people with an average weight that ranges between 130 lbs. and 220 lbs. Therefore, a heavyweight person should not consider these score as they are irrelevant to them.

Relying solely on the overall ratings is not going to be sufficient, and you should practically try your mattress out before finalizing anything.

Mattress materials

There are various mattresses materials available including memory foams, innersprings, latex, and hybrid.

Sleepers who prefer excellent support and conformance should go for memory foam mattresses. If you prefer that hug-like feel, then memory foam will prove to be your favorite here too. However, you will have to compromise on breathability and temperature neutrality if you consider memory foam for your bedroom.
Innersprings, on the other hand, are excellent at breathability and temperature regulation, but they are prone to sagging and are not very durable. These mattresses are the least durable of all other types.
Latex and hybrids tend to solve both the issues, but they don’t come cheap. Each one of them has their unique positives and negatives. However, due to durability latex mattresses are recommended, but they also come with an issue of off-gassing. According to a study conducted by Ph.D. Pan-Yin Lim latex reduce peak body pressure and relax the body as compared to other options.

Among all the types Hybrids are best suited for heavyweight people as they tend to provide contouring, breathability, temperature neutrality and edge support all in one mattress.

Sharing the mattress with your partner

You must always consider the combined weight of all the people who will be using the mattress before buying it. It will give you with an understanding on how much-concentrated weight will be put on each region of the mattress.

Back Support

It is a common misconception that high firmness means high back support. On the contrary, firmness has nothing to do with the backing of a mattress. A very soft mattress can be very good in terms of conformance and pressure relief. Firmness is associated with the comfort layer or the initial feel while support is related to the support core or lateral feel.

You must not forget that you spend a reasonable amount of time on your mattress every day. Therefore, buying a good quality mattress means that you are investing in your good physical and mental health. According to the data collected by the National Sleep Foundation over 25% of American adult population suffers from sleep disorders.

Now, there are many reasons why people don’t get enough sleep at night. One of the significant reasons is the mattress on which they sleep. Polyurethane foam and Latex are two popular choices available. A comparison study between foam and latex reveals that latex mattress reduces body pressure on the buttocks and torso as compared to polyurethane foam.

Latex is not only good for people who sleep hot but are also highly hypoallergenic.  Furthermore, it is excellent in pressure point handling and keeping the spine of the sleeper aligned adequately.  Consider latex mattress if you:

 We want to guide you to pick the best latex within your budget, if you’re in hurry, you can jump to our top 5 choices directly. 

Types of Latex

Synthetic Latex

Synthetic (also called SBR) latex is originated from many petrochemicals. The most latex mattresses today are a mixture of SBR and NR latex types. By using Talalay or Dunlop processes, SBR latex is produced. In general, the natural latex mattresses are more expensive than synthetic or blended latex mattresses.

Natural Latex

Natural latex or NR latex comes from the rubber trees. The sap of the rubber trees is used to produce the latex.  There are two different techniques that utilized for the creation of natural latex. Since 1930s, the Dunlop method has been popular. It involves molding, stem baking and stirring the sap from the rubber tree. The process involves an accumulation of natural sediment below in the bottom while heavy and dense foam stays on top.

On the other hand, the Talalay method is more recent and it needs the sap to be within the chamber that is vacuum-sealed. Talalay form of latex is lighter, more homogenous, and softer as compared to Dunlop form of latex. In mattresses, 100 percent organic or natural latex is not possible by any means. In the mattresses, the quantity of the natural latex comprises 95 percent latex.

Blended Latex

The mixture of natural and synthetic latex is known as Blended latex. There are plenty of combinations used in the development of blended latex.

Synthetic Vs. Natural  Vs. Blended  Latex

Properties Synthetic Natural Blended
Owner satisfaction Fair Excellent Good to Fair
Source Butadiene, Styrene, and other petrochemicals Rubber tree Styrene, rubber tree and butadiene and other petrochemicals
Off-gassing Moderate Little Little – Moderate
Responsiveness Fair-Good Good Fair-Good
Formation of body impressions Fair-Good Excellent Fair-Good
Consistent quality Good Fair Fair-Good
Hypoallergenic Least Highest Moderate

Pros and Cons of using a latex

Synthetic Latex
  • Natural ability to isolate motion transfer. It means you won’t get disturbed when you share a bed with your partner.
  • Helps in reducing chronic back and shoulder pain.
  • Natural latex mattresses have a natural life of more than a decade which is highest when compared with any of the other categories.
  • It has natural anti-allergy and antibacterial properties that fight against dust mites and microorganisms.

Cons
  • Due to the use of natural materials, it naturally becomes expensive.
  • The overall weight of the mattress can be too heavy to move it easily.

Latex Processing

Talalay and Dunlop are the most common types of latex processing. Both Talalay and Dunlop score very close to each other when it comes to user satisfaction. Talalay is new as compared to the Dunlop that has been around for many years now. Mattress manufacturing companies produce blended or natural latex by using both these methods.

Talalay
 Talalay is best for those sleepers who prefer conformance and like a soft sleeping surface.  In Talalay latex processing technique, the sections of latex are produced that must be glued later on. A small amount of latex is taken and poured into a mold. The foam liquid is distributed evenly within the mold to produce a consistent open-cell structure from which air is entirely extracted. The core of this mattress is then flash frozen so that the cell structure stays intact.

Dunlop
 Dunlop is good for the people who prefer to sleep on firm surfaces with improved support . The Dunlop method produces one whole piece of latex. In the Dunlop method, air is not extracted from the molds, and they are filled with the fluid. Unlike Talalay method, it doesn’t involve any flash freezing process.

Talalay Vs. Dunlop

Properties Talalay Dunlop
Firmness level Soft Firm
Support Fair Good
Motion Transferability High Moderate
Responsiveness Moderate-High Low – Moderate
Price More Less
Conformance Good Fair
Sinkage Moderate Low – Moderate
For heavyweight sleeper Fair-Good Fair-Good
For lightweight sleeper Good Fair
Formation of body impressions Good Fair-Good
Firmness consistency Good Fair
Seam gluing Yes No

Latex (Impression load deflection) ILD & Density

There are two terms associated with latex mattresses; these are Latex Density and Latex ILD. Latex density deals with the weight of a piece of latex.

Density

Density is calculated concerning the cubic foot (foam) and measuring its weight. If for instance, the piece weighs 3 pounds then the density will be 3 lbs./ft. The density will be 4 lbs./ft. if the piece weighs 4 pounds. Excellent durability and longevity are guaranteed with high density.

ILD

On the other hand, ILD deals with the firmness of a latex mattress, specifically it means how much pressure is needed to indent the mattress by 25%. This rating varies according to the type of the latex. Dunlop has a higher ILD than Talalay. Organic or natural latex has the lowest ILD as compared to the synthetic or blended latex.

ILD reading of 30 to 37 means the mattress is firm while 14 to 22 means the mattress is soft. A reading between 23 and 29 refer to the medium firmness of the latex. Anything over 38 is considered to be very firm, and for this reason, most users go for 25 to 35 ILD rating.

Type ILD Properties (Latex) Ideal for
Plush 16 & below Extremely low sinkage Side sleeper
Soft 19 to 21 Sinks beneath most of the sleepers Back/side sleeper
Medium-Soft 24 to 26 Balances out the firmness and softness Back/side sleeper
Medium-Firm 29 to 31 Minimal sinking and firm support All sleeping position
Firm 34 to 36 Almost no sinkage Back/stomach sleeper
Stiff 39 & up Without any sinking Back/stomach sleeper

The Feel of Latex

  • Conformance

Latex will conform to your body and helps to align the spine along with improves the pressure points throughout the body. Although, a memory foam mattress offers more conformance level to all sleeper’s figure as compared to latex mattresses. The natural latex shape recovery makes sure that you will not produce permanent indentations on the top layer or surface of mattresses.

  •  Adjusting

Just like memory foam, latex adjusts to all type of sleeper’s curves, rather than sink under their weight. Consequently, for the side and back sleepers latex is considered a good option especially for those who are suffering from shoulder and chronic back.

  • Point elasticity and motion isolation

The point elasticity is a unique trait of latex that means the latex is elastic as well as capable of isolating or dividing motion transfer without distracting other areas of the mattress. For getting higher point elasticity level, the mattress should be softer.

  • No noise

A latex mattress does not produce any sound when bearing weight.

Pointes You Need to Consider Before Buying Latex Mattress

Latex is among the best materials for construction of mattresses due to its resilience, breathability and hypoallergenic properties. Let’s find out what other factors you should consider before purchasing a latex mattress.

  • Support Core

In a latex mattress, it is a very elastic and resilient section. This inner layer retains bounciness and offers pressure relief to your body with no permanent alignment in accordance with the curves of the body. All latex mattresses come with support cores, while the cores in synthetic latex and hybrid models comprise of other materials including pocketed coils or Polyfoam. A natural latex mattress is the best choice when it comes to durability of the support core. It improves the longevity by five times as compared to polyfoam support core.

  • Cooling elements

Latex is the best material in terms of breathability when we talk about construction and development of mattresses. Mattresses with latex in them give you refreshing cool sleep as compared to other materials. Talalay layers like Celsion Talalay is highly breathable and cool.

  • Comfort Layer

Manufacturers use Talalay more frequently in comfort layers as compared to Dunlop due to its softness. However, Dunlop and blended latex are more durable. The comfort layers of a hybrid made of Blended Talalay is a cheaper option if the price is a crucial concern, which is also quite resilient.

  • Off-gassing

Off-gassing is a critical issue since you don’t want to expose your body to harmful chemicals. It is caused due to the use of petrochemicals in the manufacturing process of the mattress. You should opt a mattress made with 100% natural latex for good night’s sleep free of all odors.

  • Hypoallergenic properties

Latex mattresses are made from materials which have the natural tendency to fight against dust mites, bacteria, fungus and other allergy-causing organisms. However, you should be aware of the fact that synthetic or hybrid latex mattresses are not hypoallergenic. If you’re one of those guys who is suffering from allergy, you should go for a natural latex mattress.

  • Overall thickness

There are plenty of thicknesses available on the market related to all-latex and blended latex mattress. All-latex mattress usually comes between six-inches and twelve-inches in widths.

Blended-latex mattress generally ranges between eight-inches and twelve-inch thickness. The all-latex bedding is the best option for the heavyweight sleepers who are finding the optimal support, which should be at least 10-inch thick.

  •  Lifespan

The lifespan or durability of latex mattress will primarily be based on the materials used in the construction. Natural and organic latex mattresses tend to last for approximately eight to ten years. On the other hand, synthetic and blended latex mattresses can only last up to 6 years. By replacing the individual layers, you can improve the lifespan of a latex mattress but not for all models.

Mattress type Years
Natural latex 10
Airbed 8
Memory foam 7
Synthetic and blended latex 6
Hybrid 6
Innerspring 5
  • Warranty

When looking for a latex mattress, you must consider its warranty very seriously. As mentioned above, latex beddings last approximately six to nine years but their warranties can go up to twenty or even twenty-five years. The manufacturers fragment these warranties into two sections including prorated and non-prorated coverage.

During the prorated phase, being the owner, you will pay out more from your pocket. For this reason, it is the most extended phase. Therefore, you must know and understand what the warranty of your mattress covers. You need to go through the brand’s warranty claims handling procedures. You must also have a close look on the turnaround period for any repairs, replacements or ay shipping costs.

  • Price

When it comes to price, the material used in the construction is the most significant factor of all that influences the cost. Natural and organic latex come with high prices. Blended and synthetic latex will also cost a lot but not as much as organic and natural latex.

Mattress type $
Airbed $$$$
Hybrid $$$$
Natural latex $$$$
Synthetic and blended latex $$$
Memory foam $$$
Innerspring $$
