Feb 2018 Blog Mattresses

On recent daytime tv programme, a guest was chatting about how important it is to get a good night’s sleep. We at Helibeds couldn’t agree more. A high percentage of poor sleep at night and waking with those aches and creaks is attributed to making do with a mattress that is well past it’s sell by date!.

Why do we make do?

I had no idea how much a mattress cost!!

Times are hard, right? I’m on a budget

I thought the mattress was the cheap bit

While the initial cost of an inexpensive and cheap mattress may look attractive how often do you think you may have to replace or change it over the next 10 years because it’s just not comfy anymore, you’re not sleeping well or waking refreshed and ready to take on the world.

You will probably end up paying possibly 3 times as much when buying a cheap mattress

Helibeds have an experienced Customer Service team who can guide you to finding the perfect mattress for you.

How do I find the right mattress?

What to look for when buying a mattress
When buying a mattress the first thing you should consider is what position you tend to sleep in. Do you sleep mostly on your back, your side, or your stomach? Knowing this is a great place to start in the search for your mattress.

Back Sleepers:
If you are a back sleeper the best advice and general rule is to buy a firm mattress. Remember though that there is a difference between firm and just plain hard. A firm mattress has enough resistance to keep your spine straight when you are sleeping. A mattress that is too soft will not support your spine enough
The best mattress for a back sleeper will be firm, but should still have enough softness to give to comfort to the joints.
We have several different types in our range with a firmer yet comfortable feel, the Ultimate Ortho, Pocket Luxury and Everest to name a few. All available in different sizings, Single 3ft Small Double 4ft Double 4ft6 Kingsize 5ft and Superking 6ft

Helibeds Same Day Delivery applies to the standard length of 6’3″ within this bed range, if you can wait a couple of weeks why not have a bespoke bed. Most of our range of mattresses and divan sets can be made to measure. Any length or width can be accommodated so don’t compromise. we also stock a range of 6’6 long bed in the standard 3ft width and also 3’6 and 4’6

Side Sleepers:
Side sleepers should consider buying a mattress that is not as firm as those recommended for a back sleeper. This does not mean that side sleepers should buy a soft mattress, rather that they should buy a mattress that gives enough to comfort to the natural bumps and curves of the side sleeping position. It is recommended that when sleeping on your side you might like to put a pillow between your legs to prevent pelvis rotation on the mattress in the night. This will also help to keep your spine in alignment whilst you are sleeping on your mattress.
The Zoned Simone, Visco Countess and Ascot – Body Support Range™ are great examples.

Stomach Sleepers:
Stomach sleepers should take note that sleeping on your stomach can irritate your neck and back due to the rotation of the neck to one side in this position. If you are unable to make the change to becoming a side or back sleeper then try to find a mattress that is soft enough on the surface to forgo the use of a pillow which will only push the neck further out of alignment. Like a back sleeper, the best mattress for a stomach sleeper will be one that has supportive density, but also enough softness give to comfort to the sleeper’s body.

All Sleepers:
A mattress that will effectively support the body while providing enough comfort to the natural shapes and curves of the body is ideal. Remember to always use a pillow between your legs when sleeping on your side, or under your pelvis when sleeping on your stomach to limit movement.

Here at Helibeds we cannot stress enough that the best mattress for you is the mattress you feel is the most comfortable for you.
