ON AN AIR MATTRESS
Ah, the blowup. Here’s how to make the best of snoozing on a glorified pool float:
FILL ‘ER UP
The firmer the mattress, the better, says Wu. If you’re a back sleeper, it stops your lower back overarching and will protect you from rounded shoulders, which could lead to neck and shoulder tightness.
TOP IT OFF
When you inflate is key. ‘Firmness may decrease after you inflate as a result of the material stretching,’ says Corey Lewison, product line director at Coleman, maker of Airbeds. ‘Blow it up a few hours before use, then add a bit more before bedtime.’
SET UP FOR SUCCESS
To prevent you getting cold, place a sleeping bag on top of the bed, then add sheets. Oh, and use fitted sheets to avoid them sliding around while you sleep. Sweet dreams!
