Each mattress has its match! Just as your body is coded with unique features and measurements, every mattress type is engineered with specific makeup to help achieve optimal sleep quality. There isn’t a cure-all mattress type that will guarantee a restful night for each sleeper. However, you could inform your adjustable mattress-buying decisions based on some crucial factors: body shape, height, and weight distribution. To help you figure out which type of mattress is the best fit for your body, we will be diving into a few of these categories. Read on to learn more!
Considering Your Height
While designed with high-quality comfort and sleep, adjustable bed mattress models could accommodate all types of heights and personal sleeping preferences. Allow us to explore some options that might be appropriate for tall, average, and shorter sleepers. For tall sleepers, consider twin XL, full, queen, or king mattresses and California king mattresses. For average-height sleepers, consider twin beds as well as full and queen mattresses since these offer additional width for couples or comfort. For smaller or petite sleepers, mattress requirements may not differ from those of average height. However, you might find a lower spread of your weight distribution, one other key factor in finding the best mattress. Luckily, most standard and luxury mattresses accommodate smaller frames. The rest is up to you.
Determining Your Body Shape
Sound sleep is about allowing for correct alignment. Mattress care and sleep experts confirm that the best mattress for your body is probably the one that is best for your spine. Spinal alignment during sleep will equal improved circulation, which then leads to deeper relaxation. To identify which kind of support your body needs, take a look at these three body shapes. Ectomorph body types are the lean and long with an average distribution of weight. Hybrid mattresses work great, as well as foam mattresses for those who prefer limited bounce and materials that react to a natural sleep position. Mesomorph body types have solid and athletic builds, with muscular upper bodies and legs. Hybrid mattresses with more zonal variation will offer localized support. Endomorph body types have bigger frames and higher density of muscle and weight. Look for some medium-firm and firm mattresses that prioritize balanced support across your body.
One final consideration: you will want to think about how weight distribution comes into the picture. In other words, which parts of your body do you think will apply the most pressure on soft mattresses? As a general rule of thumb, heavier areas might be best supported by firm surfaces, whereas light areas can find all the support they need from softer surfaces.
