What is mattress feel?
The ‘feel’ of a mattress refers to the overall comfort and response it provides when you lie on it. It’s the perceived level of softness or firmness under your body, which can significantly affect the quality of your sleep. The stark difference between a super-soft mattress that offers ample pushback, and a firm mattress with little-to-no give, largely comes down to the types of fibres used above the spring unit.
The unique comfort level of a mattress arises from several elements working together in concert. The four main factors that contribute to this are:
- Type of fibre
- Quantity of fibre (gsm)
- Your body weight
- Your sleeping position
People often base their mattress selection solely on spring tension, overlooking these other crucial elements. However, to truly achieve a tranquil, high-quality night’s sleep, these additional factors warrant due consideration.
Understanding the role of fibres layered above the springs within the mattress is vital. A wide range of options exists, and the choice will greatly depend on your personal needs and priorities. For instance, if heat dispersal is essential for your optimal sleep, natural fibres like hand-teased wool and cotton would be ideal. On the other hand, if you require significant back and neck support, we would recommend horsetail or organic flax.
Remember, choosing the perfect mattress is not just about spring tension; it’s about considering all these elements that work together to offer you a tailored sleep experience.
