The Sleep Specialists at Mattress World Northwest are eager to recommend some of our best mattresses for couples. Whether you and your partner prefer to sleep close or require more space, whether one of you requires a firm surface while the other dreams of a pillowtop style, we’re committed to helping our customers find a mattress that both partners will love.
More than 40 percent of U.S. couples adopt the “Liberty” or back-to-back sleeping position at night. While it may seem cold and distant, this popular sleep style supposedly means partners share a sense of closeness while remaining independent. No matter what sleep position you and your bedmate prefer, it’s essential that you both have ample space and can sleep soundly without interruption. If one of you is a fidgety sleeper, or has trouble getting comfortable, this can place a huge strain on your relationship as time goes on.
One of the first things to look for is a mattress with minimal motion transfer, which ensures there is no bounciness or vibration when your partner moves around. Advanced memory foam and latex mattresses made by leading manufacturers like Simmons and Sealy are designed to greatly decrease motion transfer between sleeping partners. These high-tech materials absorb even the smallest movements, creating a peaceful environment that promotes a long night of regenerating sleep.
Another prime consideration is space. A full size bed is just too small for an adult couple, who ideally should be sleeping on a queen sized mattress. A king or California king promises still better sleep quality, even among the most restless sleep partners. Whatever make or model you buy, both sleep partners should test drive prospective mattresses, looking for equal measures of support and comfort, with little vibration transfer.
