The basis of a good night's sleep is a comfortable bed and a good mattresses. But especially buying good mattresses is sometimes a difficult task in Hong Kong. There is so much choice and sometimes there are big price differences. That's why we're happy to help you. In this blog we will compare some mattresses.
How to choose the right mattress:
Our spine is one of the most important components of the human body. As we spend a significant amount of time asleep, a good mattress with the proper support to the spine is essential for the restorative cycle of a healthy spine during your sleep. Furthermore, a good nigh of sleep can help alleviate all the mental and physical stress you have accumulated during the day.
Some people have a false belief that the firmer the mattress, the better the protection it provides for the spine. However, the latest medical research shows that only the mattresses with the appropriate firmness can provide the proper support to our bodies.
A good mattress should accommodate that different sleep habits of its users. It should help maintain the proper alignment of the spine for those who sleep on their sides, while ensuring the natural curvature of the spine is preserved for those who sleep on the back.
The right mattress for you should fill up the space between your waist and the bed, and minimize spaces between the back of your knees and the bed.

To avoid any misunderstanding, we want to reiterate;. there are no good or bad mattresses. Due to the fact that every person has it unique body structure, sleep rhythm and personal preferences. So you have to search for a mattress that fits you well as a person.
When you begin to compare mattresses, you have to consider a number of things:
Slatted bottom Not all mattresses are suitable for adjustable slatted bedframes, so be careful. For example, pocket lining mattresses can not be used with adjustable slatted bedbases but polyether foam mattresses do fit.
Sleeping and body weight You have those abdominal sleepers, back sleepers and silk sleepers. This is also important when comparing mattresses. Belly sleepers can best choose a sturdy mattress to support the spine. Side lighters can best choose mattresses with more comfort zones like the Matras Adaptive Bonnel Spring.
Heat regulation Do you get it hot or cold, and you're very busy? These are also important aspects. Would you like to sleep well? Then a cold foam mattress like the mattress comfort is suitable for you. For people who are very outspoken, a pocketspring mattress like the Matras Outlast LV is actually the best choice. A matt foam mattress is the best for the true cold color.
Allergies When you are quickly allergic, it is important to choose an antiallergic mattress. It's also good to watch a printable jacket (the cover) so you can wash it. Wash it at least 60 degrees, because then the dust dust mite will be killed.
