How to choose your mattress?
Before rushing into the store we advise you to start with a study of your needs and preferences to avoid any missteps. The number of users and the size of the box spring, would, of course, be a first essential consideration to take into account. But still, there is what is called density of the mattress - a criterion which is largely dependent on the morphology of your body. This defines the more or less firm character of the mattress. Usually, what the specialists advise is to find the right balance between firm and soft to guarantee optimal comfort and good alignment of the spine. Finally, back pain is quite often the result of an ill-chosen box spring!

Choose your mattress according to...
Regarding the size of the mattress, it will vary depending on the size of the box spring. That is to say, the dimensions of the mattress will obviously not be the same for a single bed and a double bed, an adult bed, adolescent and child. The nature of the spring mattresses being generally denser, you will have to choose a mattress with a greater thickness (from 23 cm). On the other hand, a thickness of 18 cm would be quite sufficient for a latex or foam mattress.

The role of the filling in all this?
The upholstery is a criterion which is linked to the peculiarities of reception, that is to say to the sensation caused by the first contact of the body with the surface of the mattress. Similar to the density, there too it could be a rather soft reception or rather tonic, depending on the material chosen and the number of layers making up the filling. In general, we consider that a thick filling guarantees a comfortable mattress. And yet, we must not forget that the material is another essential element of comfort. Natural materials are not only pleasant to the touch but also have better thermoregulatory properties, which makes them a better solution compared to synthetic materials.
