Everybody deserves a good night’s sleep, but everyone’s body responds to various mattresses a little bit differently. It won’t matter how comfortable your mattress is if it isn’t the right size for you. At Mattress World Northwest, our Sleep Specialists know mattresses inside and out. We can help you learn the ins and outs of memory foam, latex, inner spring, and much more, and then leave you free to nap on our floor models for as long as you wish. With our expertise and personalized approach to customer care, we can help you find the right bed to suit your body type.
Choose a mattress with dimensions that easily accommodate your own dimensions, with plenty of room to spare—especially if you’re a restless sleeper or if you share your bed. Most adults choose a full, queen, or king size mattress, as a twin is typically too cramped. Select from the following dimensions:
In addition, some sleepers prefer a California king size mattress, which is 72 inches wide by 84 inches long—an ideal choice for people who are tall. Most solo sleepers can fit comfortably on a full size mattress, while couples would be wise to choose a queen or king size. If your own proportions are generous, select a larger mattress size.
The mattress you select should be engineered to firmly support your weight, while giving you the comfort level you desire. Only a thorough test drive of the floor models will let you know exactly which one is right for you. However, heavier individuals tend to prefer a medium firm or a luxury firm, which might also sometimes be referred to as comfort firm, cushion firm, or plush firm. Mattresses that are on the firm end of the scale don’t have as much “give,” which means they can easily support a sleeper’s weight, and still retain their proper form and comfort for years.
If you’re within an average body weight, you might do well with a softer mattress. Look for pillowtop or a Euro top, both of which feature an extra layer of cushioning support. Or, consider trying a memory foam, latex, or hybrid mattress. These materials gently cradle and conform to your body.
After considering your height and weight, evaluate whether you have any health concerns that might affect your mattress choice. A body is well-supported on medium firm mattresses if chronic back pain is a problem. On the other hand, if you have arthritis, you’ll likely feel more comfortable on a softer mattress. Sleepers with sleep apnea might consider an adjustable bed that helps them keep the airways open while they slumber. Adjustable beds are also a great choice for people with orthostatic hypotension, as the slight incline can help them transition to a seated position more gradually. This may help prevent dizziness or lightheadedness.
