What is the right mattress firmness for me?

Finding the correct mattress support tension is crucial for getting a good night's sleep, and very much depends on your preferred sleeping position. Read on to find the correct mattress firmness for the way you sleep.

Side sleeper

Sleeping on your side requires a small double mattress surface to provide cushioning to pressure points like the shoulders and hips. A soft or medium mattress support tension is ideal for side sleepers due to this reason, helping to promote healthy spinal alignment support body movements throughout the night.

Back and front sleepers

On the other end of the spectrum, preferred front or back sleepers will be best supported on a firmer or extra firm mattress. Such a support tension means the small double mattress evenly distributes body weight, and for those who are affected by back or joint pains, an extra firm mattress firmness provides the increased support you'll need to help keep pain at bay.

I sleep in all positions

If you can't keep still at night and like to sleep in all positions, medium firm support is neither too firm nor too soft to adequately support your spine and body weight in all sleeping positions.

I'm looking for a small double for guest rooms

Seeing as you cannot account for all guests preferred sleeping positions when they stay over, a medium firm small double mattress will certainly suffice in supporting any sleeping position. Providing support for any body shape and distributing weight evenly all night long, a medium firm tension will ensure your guests wake up feeling refreshed.

What types of small double mattresses are available?

Pocket sprung mattresses

Comprised of individual pocket springs, our range of pocket sprung mattresses are some of the most popular of all our small double mattresses. As each spring moves independently, the mattress surface moves to the contours of your body shape and provides a great night's sleep. The affordability and luxurious comfort supplied by a pocket spring mattress are why it has become an increasingly popular option from traditional spring small double mattresses.

Open coil mattress

Affordable and brilliant for providing firmer tensions, open coil small double mattresses are a fabulous option for those looking for a mattress on the cheaper end of the spectrum. Made from a continuous wire that runs vertically up and down the small double mattress, a traditional coil spring system is often paired with natural fillings or foam layers to provide additional comfort.

Foam mattresses

Whether it's memory foam, reflex foam or high density foam, Mattressman's range of foam small double mattresses are fantastic for those who love their body-moulding properties. By comparison to other mattresses, a memory foam mattress is known for providing fantastic body support all night long. Although if you're a hot sleeper, a memory foam mattress has heat retention qualities that could exacerbate feeling too hot throughout the night.

Latex mattress

From all our mattresses, latex options are certainly the most durable. Comprised of latex derived from a rubber tree, natural material small double mattresses can last over 10 years when cared for properly. The comfort compared to memory foam small double mattresses is similar, however, latex options are said to be more bouncy whilst still retaining body-moulding qualities.

Hybrid mattresses

If you cannot decide between small double mattresses that incorporate a traditional spring system, memory foam or natural materials, then the perfect small double mattress for you may be a hybrid option. Combining springs with latex or memory foam, such a mattress provides superb support yet with extra comfort.

Are there any other small double mattress benefits?

Besides the extensive small double mattresses we offer, we are proud to supply mattresses that encompass a large variety of other benefits. This means you can find the perfect mattress not only for the way you sleep, but the best mattress to suit your delivery and material preferences.
For instance, for easy transport and fast delivery, you can rely on vacuum-packed small double mattress options. Compressed, rolled and sealed in vacuum-packed packaging, these mattresses ensure you can get your new sleeping solution to your bedroom with ease. This is the best small double mattress benefit for smaller homes or awkward spaces.
Polyester and synthetic fillings are fantastic for those who are affected by hay-fever or allergies, as the tight pore size of the fibres make it harder for dust mites to pass through the mattress fillings. By comparison, small double mattresses that incorporate any natural material are best suited for those who aren't affected by hay-fever.
