NOT TOO HARD, NOT TOO SOFT BUT JUST RIGHT
Goldilocks knew the importance of the right mattress, but according to Melissa Power from The Sleeping Giant a common misconception is that a firmer mattress equals better support. “Firmer isn’t always better,” she says. “Ensuring your mattress is ‘perfect’ is about comfort and adequate weight distribution. If your weight is more evenly distributed and key parts of your body are well supported, then you will have less pressure on your body and ultimately a much more comfortable night of sleep.”
Once you have found your perfect match Melissa says there are three rules to follow to make sure you care for it adequately.
“You should rotate your mattress head to toe every two to three months rather than flipping it over as was common practice a few years ago,” she says.“A mattress protector will also keep your new investment clean and comfortable, and lastly, you should regularly strip off your bed and allow your mattress to air.
“It’s also wise to vacuum the mattress at the same time so that any dust and particles can be removed.”
