If you’re waking up with aches and sore muscles, your mattress might be to blame. It could be applying pressure in the wrong places, or letting your body sink into an uncomfortable position. Either way, “putting up” with a bad mattress isn’t worth it especially since missing sleep can leave you feeling cranky the next day.
A good mattress is like a car or a favorite tee-shirt, the more you use it—every night!—the more it wears down. Due to this, it’s recommended that you replace your mattress every 5-10 years. A good rule of thumb is to get a new one if you notice parts of the mattress sagging, if your partner’s sleep is disturbed when you move around, or if you wake up feeling stiff or with pains. Finding hotel beds especially comfy is another sign that your mattress at home needs an upgrade.
Moving to a new place can be exciting or a bit nerve racking depending how you look at it. Transporting a bed from one bedroom to another is expensive and particularly annoying. After all, you’ll need at least two people, the right vehicle, and a lot of patience. Because, who wants to deal with turning the corners on narrow staircases, squeezing into an elevator, or tripping over something since you can’t see anything but that bulky mattress right in front of you? Not us. If you order a new mattress with NECTAR, you instantly get free shipping and returns, not to mention the mattress comes conveniently rolled up, ready to be placed anywhere you like.
Life happens. If you plan to start sharing a bed with someone, you will definitely need a bigger mattress. Same goes, if you find that you’ve simply outgrown a smaller mattress that you got years ago. Finally, if you are moving into a bigger bedroom, you might find it a great excuse to upgrade to a bigger mattress.
This type of sleeper needs support for the lower back. Most chiropractors recommend medium-firm mattress that hug the spine and that you avoid a spring mattress at any cost! They are way too stiff for the back sleeper.
This sleeping position needs a mattress that lets the shoulders and hips sink in a little. Look for a memory foam mattress that contours around these areas to ensure your spine remains properly aligned overnight.
Stomach sleepers come in two varieties: the type that genuinely prefers this position and the type that subconsciously chooses this position due to lower back pain. Either way, you’ll need a firm mattress that holds your body up. Too much sink will spell sleeping troubles.
The combo sleeper will rotate through all of the above sleeping positions and even invent a few of their own! A gel memory foam mattress will let your body sink slightly when you’re your side, hold firm while you’re on your back, and not be too soft when you’re on your stomach. It’s the way to go when you want to take the guesswork out of choosing the right firmness.
Memory foam was initially developed by NASA in the 1960s to keep pilots and passengers cushioned and properly supported during flights. Since then, it’s been the gold-standard for mattresses because it helps to relieve pressure on your spine and accommodates different sleeping positions. Couples often prefer a memory foam mattress because it helps absorb motion, meaning that if one person moves or gets out of bed, the other won’t feel the bounce and accidentally wake up. A full-size memory foam mattress can start at $600 and increase in price depending on quality. Nectar prides itself on using premium foams while keeping the price low.
While memory foam will contour to the exact shape of your body, latex conforms only to the general impressions of your body. Latex also gets points subtracted because it doesn’t isolate motion very well. Due to its bounciness, if one person moves, the other might find their sleep disturbed. These types of mattresses are expensive to make, so for a full-size mattress, you’re looking at prices that start at $900 for natural latex.
A hybrid mattress has an innerspring core covered in foam and topped off by multiple memory foam top layers. While bulky in size, these can be a good choice for those people who actually want a little bounce in their mattress. It’s important to remember that hybrids can vary in quality from one brand to another. The cost for one of these can be as low as $400 or over a thousand, depending on construction.
At 39 inches by 75 inches, a twin mattress works great for small spaces. It has enough space to fit one adult.
The twin XL mattress measures 39 inches by 80 inches making it 5 inches longer than a twin. It’s a must for someone tall and a good option for someone in a small space who wants a little more leg room.
The full is the go-to choice for a starter mattress. It measures 54 inches by 75 inches, which gives a single sleeper room to stretch out. Most average-sized rooms and studio apartments can accommodate a full-sized bed.
A queen bed, 60 inches by 80 inches, is the most popular choice. It allows for two people to sleep comfortably. A bedroom should be at least 10 by 10 square feet to accommodate this size.
A king bed measures 76 inches by 80 inches and requires a larger room that is at least 10 x 12 square feet to allow room to walk around. This is the way to go for couples who share their bed with a larger pet.
A California King is 72 inches by 84 inches. So, it’s four inches narrower than a king-size bed, but four inches longer. This makes it a comfier option if one or two of the sleepers are over six feet tall. Like, the king, the california king requires a larger room.
