What is the right mattress firmness for me?

Getting the best night's sleep possible comes down to what mattress firmness is suited to your preferred sleeping position. With the right single mattress for the way you sleep, it will promote healthy spinal alignment and total body support.

Side sleeper

For those who prefer to sleep on their side, your pressure points such as the shoulders and hips need to receive extra cushioning in order to support your body properly. A soft or medium tension mattress is best designed to do this as you sleep in this position.

Back or front sleeper

Laying flat on your back or front means that you should opt for a firmer mattress. With this, if you're of a heavier stature or are affected by back or joint pain, an extra firm mattress will help provide additional support throughout the night.

I sleep in all positions

If you prefer to sleep on your back, front and side, a medium firm mattress will be soft enough to support side sleeping and firm enough for when you're on your back or front. For those who share a bed with a partner and you have differing sleeping position preferences, a medium firm mattress will also suffice to give you a supported great night's sleep.

What are better, natural or synthetic fillings?

There are many benefits in opting for a single mattress that contains natural materials, however, if you're affected by hayfever or allergies then we recommend that you choose a single mattress with synthetic or polyester fillings. Natural materials and their fibres have large pore sizes, which makes it easier for dust mites to pass through and build up. With polyester fillings, the fibres have a tight pore size which makes it harder for dust mites to reside in your single mattress, therefore, triggering hayfever symptoms less than natural fillings would.
