ON AN AIR MAT­TRESS

Cosmopolitan (Australia) - - Body -

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!
