What's Your Mattress Type?


Sleep is the most important behavioral activity we do every night -- it’s essential for restoring our bodies and our brain, but most of us don’t give it a second thought. We live in a fast-paced world where sleep takes a backseat to everything else in our lives because we don’t understand the importance of it or we think “oh I’ll just catch up on sleep on the weekend.” PSA: Catching up on sleep is a myth. It cannot be done which is why it is imperative for us to listen to our bodies and learn to take this nightly indulgence seriously. A good way to start is by making sure you are sleeping on the ideal sleep surface for your needs. If you are waking up tired, with aches, or you’re tossing & turning all night you may want to rethink the type of mattress you’re sleeping on.

Inner Spring || From plush to firm inner spring mattresses are a common mattress choice among people due to their varying levels of comfort. Some feature pillow tops on top of coils that will change in density depending on the level of comfort you need. Firm mattresses will have firmer layers in the pillow top while the plush mattresses will have softer layers. Whether firm or plush is right for you, inner spring mattresses are known for that sleep-on-top feeling that hugs you lightly like a cloud.

Foam || Constructed of polyurethane, latex, gel, or memory foam this type of mattress contours to your body providing the kind of comfort that envelops you. They excel in proper weight distribution, support, and pressure management and are great for couples since no movement can be felt as the person rotates. Latex mattresses offer a different feel and support when compared to the memory foam; however both will still provide that sink-in comfort. Foam mattresses can also be folded making it easy to navigate to the bedroom regardless of the size of your home.

Hybrid || Hybrid mattresses marry inner spring and foam technology in holy mattressmony. The active support of inner springs work in unison with the cradling comfort of memory or latex foams to deliver unique relaxation that is the best of both worlds.
