Choosing the right mattress to sleep "like a baby
Waking up in great shape starts with sleeping well on a good mattress, but how to choose the best mattress from all those available on the market: what material, what dimensions, how to find your way around?
Choose a mattress made of natural materials: synthetic materials should be avoided because they block air circulation and promote perspiration, a synthetic mattress quickly becomes a nest of dust mites and moulds, while natural materials have thermo-regulatory qualities that keep the mattress at the same temperature, you perspire less, you sleep better, so mattresses made of coconut fibre, natural latex or wool are to be preferred.
Choose a semi-firm density: the density of the mattress is chosen according to the weight of the sleeper, it is obvious that a 50 kg woman and a 100 kg man do not have the same needs, but the important thing is that the mattress is neither too firm nor too flexible, so in a too firm mattress, the body cannot sink, the spine will not be straight, in a mattress too soft the body sinks too deep and the spine is not straight either, which can cause back pain.
To be sure you are not bothered by your partner, don’t hesitate to choose a large mattress. 140 cm wide mattresses are very good but you can quickly be bothered by each other’s movements, so if you are lucky enough to have a large bedroom, prefer a 160 cm mattress where everyone can make themselves comfortable. 180 cm must? a one-piece mattress or a 2-piece mattress of 90 cm.
Choose a removable mattress to remove the cover once or twice a year and wash it in the washing machine, what could be better than sleeping on a very clean mattress whose cover has dried in the sun on a beautiful spring day, protect your mattress with a sheet to avoid any halo of perspiration, choose a breathable PVC-free sheet for better comfort and choose an Organic Cotton sheet to prevent the proliferation of dust mites and bacteria.
