Benefits of using an Adjustable Mattress

Adjustable beds provide a range of benefits and ample reasons for you to consider as your next sleeping buddy.

Anti-Acid Reflux

Keep acid reflux at bay with an adjustable bed as you can tweak it by elevating the upper body and pushing down the lower body so that gravity prevents the stomach acid from rising up the esophagus. It also reduces heartburn and improves breathing as well as blood supply by enhancing the heart’s function.


The zero gravity is a position on the adjustable bed base which elevates your legs and your head to avert pressure from the neck and back which boosts blood flow.


Since the adjustable bed elevates your upper body, it prevents collapsing of the soft tissue at the back of the throat which reduces sleep apnea and its symptoms like snoring.

You Do Not Cause Disturbance

The idea of an adjustable bed is to keep co-sleepers and their activities independent of each other so that one does not end up disturbing the other.

So Comfortable!

We love our new mattress! It is the perfect mix of soft and firm for me and my husband. Within the first week we felt so much more refreshed waking up. I did by a 1 inch mattress pad just to soften the corners for how it looks when the bed is made but in terms of comfort we didn’t need it! It is also pretty light weight for a mattress so it will be easy to move in the future!

Types of Mattresses for Adjustable Bed

Before you go shopping for an adjustable mattress, here are a few things to keep in mind with respect to an adjustable bed frame. An adjustable bed frame lifts your mattress (top and bottom) anywhere between 40 and 70 degree angle which coaxes your mattress to contort to a shape it was not ideally assumed to be in.

Latex Mattress

Latex is the type of mattress that complements the shape of your body and contours accordingly to support your body by building a natural caveat for it. Another added advantage is that while contouring, it has ample space between your body and the top layer which allows air circulation and negates the chances for heat retention. It is firm, durable and adds a certain amount of ounce as you climb in for a cozy sleep.

Hybrid Mattress

A hybrid mattress is a combination of the soft memory foam mattress and the straight support of an innerspring mattress. Since these are combination mattresses, they are a tad bit more expensive. However the dual properties makes it a go-to mattress and are often a good purchase for adjustable bed bases. However, consult your retailer before making a purchase.

Split King Base

Perhaps one of the best choices for adjustable beds is the humble memory foam mattress. It retains the shape and weight of your body for an even weight & pressure distribution. It greatly relieves pressure points and bounces back, ensuring that your body is firmly on the mattress, supporting it and providing utmost comfort.

How do you pick a Mattress for an Adjustable Frame?

There are some factors you need to consider before you purchase a mattress for your bed frame. It is important to note that all mattresses do not suit an adjustable bed frame.
Is your mattress flexible enough?
The most important parameter to consider. If your mattress is not flexible, enough then it cannot possibly contort as per your adjustable bed’s movement.
Is your mattress too thick or too thin?
Your mattress should not be too thick or too thin. For your adjustable bed to work as it should, the mattress you buy should complement it. The Nectar memory foam mattress will not slide off your bed but adjust to fit to whatever position you want to set your bed to.
Is your mattress the right size as your adjustable bed?
Many times, adjustable mattresses and adjustable split king bed frames are two different purchases. This makes it difficult to understand if your mattress will fit the frame. The remedy? Measure your bed frame and ask your retailer to help you with a mattress that would fit this frame.
Split / Single
