Which Firmness and Density to Choose For Your Mattress?
For each type of suspension, there are 3 levels of firmness: soft, firm and very firm. Please note that the levels of firmness and their naming may differ from one manufacturer to another. For example, the term “balanced” can be used instead of “soft” by some mattress makers.
The firmness of a mattress is chosen according to its morphology (size / weight). The longer and larger the sleeper, the firmer the mattress must be. On the contrary, light people and children need more flexible support.
For couples with opposite morphologies, custom-made mattresses can today meet the needs of both sleepers by combining two different levels of firmness. A sleeper moves between 30 and 40 times a night. It is therefore advisable to choose a bed width sufficient to sleep well.
If you are sleeping alone, opt for a mattress 20 cm longer than your height to properly extend your legs and a width of 90 cm or more depending on your preference. If you sleep in a couple, bedding 160 x 200 will guarantee a better independence of sleeping. With large bedding, the quality of sleep increases and the number of waking at night falls.
