What types of mattresses make an all-seasons mattress?
Most of our all-seasons mattresses use fillings as the feature that will regulate temperature. Therefore, the main support is derived from pocket springs. A pocket sprung mattress comprises individual springs that work independently, allowing the mattress surface to move to your body contours. This promotes healthy spine alignment, total body support, even weight distribution and pressure relief for you when you choose the support tension appropriate for the way you sleep.
Mattresses with natural fillings
We stock a variety of mattresses that have incorporated a variety of natural fillings. Sleeping solutions that include cotton, wool, lambswool, alpaca, mohair, cashmere and silk will benefit from their absorption qualities and ability to control moisture levels as you sleep. Such mattresses often have chrome air vents stitched around the perimeter of the mattress border, so when these natural fillings wick away excess moisture and heat, the mattress is able to remain breathable and draw in cool air. Overall, it's the good air circulation from the chrome-finished vents paired with these fillings that are what make a great mattress and superb night's sleep.
If you're affected by a dust mite allergy, a mattress with natural fibres is likely not the best option for you. The pore sizes of these fibres are large, which makes it easier for dust mites to pass through the mattress and build up over time. If you're affected by this, you may wish to consider a mattress with polyester fillings instead.
Mattresses with polyester fillings
Whilst synthetic fillings do not offer the same temperature regulation comparison to natural ones, they're great for anyone who is affected by a dust mite allergy. Polyester is neither warming nor cooling, making them extremely versatile and appropriate for an all-season mattress. Unlike their natural counterparts, polyester fibres have very small pore sizes, making it hard for dust mites to pass through a mattress and build up over time, perfect for allergy sufferers.
Double-sided all-seasons mattress
Instead of incorporating versatile fillings that are temperature regulating no matter the weather, we stock a double-sided mattress that includes a cooling summer side and a warming winter side. The Restopaedic Cool Pocket 1000 Mattress features a pocket spring system to provide the main support, where a deep layer of warming memory foam on the winter side of the mattress is designed to retain heat. On the opposite side, the polyester hypoallergenic fillings complement Restopaedic's Ultra Cool Ice Fabric which feels cool to the touch. So, no matter the time of year, there's one side of the mattress that provides the temperature regulation you need for a good night's sleep.
What mattresses to avoid
Despite the Restopaedic Cool Pocket including memory foam on one side of the mattress, generally, memory foam isn't the best mattress type to be used all year round. This is because memory foam is made up of millions of tiny holes that expel air when pressure is applied to the mattress surface, meaning there's little airflow and heat is retained very well. Therefore, when it comes to the hot months, you may find your mattress is making you feel uncomfortable when you're off to bed, especially for hot sleepers. With this in mind, we recommend avoiding memory foam unless it's incorporated into a double-sided seasonal mattress.
