How to Choose the Best Sized Mattress For You

What’s the best mattress size for me?

What_s-the-best-mattress-size-for-me

Believe it or not, one of the most commonly Googled questions about beds in Australia is – “What’s the best bed size for me?”

So for all you little Goldilockses out there, here are some of our recommendations.

It is only in the last 30 years or so that double beds have dropped out of vogue for married couples. While they were previously the most popular mattress for those in a couple, particularly during the summer of love (60s and 70s), they were actually only approximately 15” bigger than a twin size! As we have changed our bedroom habits, and have gotten taller, the Queen size bed is currently the most popular choice for those sharing a bed with someone.

Standard-bed-sizes

Standard bed sizes have reflected changing bedroom tastes throughout the decades.

The current Queen bed’s popularity gives us approximately 6” extra space on both the height and width. If you are looking for a pretty standard bed to share with a partner, this is your best bed. It is common, and the easiest to get economically priced manchester for.

However, for those who want a little more space, you can go with a King size bed. The King Size makes up the size of two twin beds pushed together, so it offers plenty of room for both partners. For those who are looking for an option of greater length, the largest length available is the California King Bed. While large and luxurious, getting Manchester for these size beds is often pricier and more difficult to come by.

Making sure that you have the right mattress before you start sleeping on it can save you a lot of headaches down the track

Commonly speaking, single beds are often seen as being only for children, so teenagers will likely want to upgrade to at least a double. Doubles and twins can be good for people who are single, but usually couples like the larger space a Queen gives.

When it comes to the size question though, it essentially comes down to three considerations:

  1. How large is the bedroom space? Maximising the space available and where the bed will set might make some of these decisions for you. Make sure your measure up the bedroom, so that you get a bed that will fit!
  2. Cost – As beds get larger, they also get pricier. If cost is an issue, going down to a double or a Queen can save you money, over a King or California King.
  3. Personal preference – some people move a lot, and like to be further away from their partners. If you are tall, you may also have a length preference, which makes you lean toward the California King.

If you find your hanging out the end of your bed, a California King size could give you the extra space you need.

Choosing the best mattress and bed to assist with back pain

Having back pain is a common issue for many Australians. Whether it’s chronic or occasional back pain, it can become extremely inconvenient and debilitating, restricting you from completing day-to-day activities. Back pain is not always completely curable, however, sleeping on the right mattress can significantly support and improve your back as well as your joints and muscles. Mattress stores in Melbourne supply high-quality and affordable beds for backs.

Chiropractors, health professionals and ergonomists all recommend that to get better rest, protect your back, and to aid recovery – your body needs to be in the zero-stress position. A zero-stress position is where your body has its spine in a perfectly neutral position, so there is no strain or stress on it. This means that your body can rest properly, repair itself, and avoid pain as the spine is not being pulled out of alignment by your heavier shoulders, stomach and hips.

You should choose a very comfortable mattress for your back pain. Your health depends on the kind of mattress you decide to buy. If you buy a cheap one that is not comfortable then you might suffer more and spend more money on your health instead. This will be more expensive in the long run. The only way to achieve the zero-stress position with a bed, is for it to be fully ergonomic. This means that it needs to be able to adjust for your unique body type, shape and height to keep you in this position.

The Best Bed for Back Pain

Back Problems are one of the most common conditions affecting Australians. The Australian Bureau of Statistics reports that approximately 16% of the population have a chronic back pain issue. They also estimate that approximately 70-90% of people will experience a problem with lower back pain in their life.

Back pain slows us down, is no fun, and stops us from doing the things that we want to do. If you are doing everything you can to protect your back – consider what role your bed can play for you.

How can my bed protect my back?

Chiropractors, health professionals and ergonomists all recommend that to get better rest, protect your back, and to aid recovery – your body needs to be in the zero stress position. A zero stress position is where your body has its spine in a perfectly neutral position, so there is no strain or stress on it.

This means that your body is able to rest properly, repair itself, and avoid pain as the spine is not being pulled out of alignment by your heavier shoulders, stomach and hips. You can see independent scientific reports of the benefits of the zero-stress position here.

How do I achieve this with my bed?

The only way to achieve the zero stress position with a bed, is for it to be fully ergonomic. This means that it needs to be able to adjust for your unique body type, shape and height to keep you in this position. A study conducted by Dr Ray Hayek, Macquarie University, Sydney, School of Chiropractic reported that use of variable support (ergonomics) showed the following benefits:

  • Decrease in “disc wedging” demonstrating less tension and compression at those levels.
  • Decreased spinal rotation.
  • Improved spinal alignment closer to the ‘zero stress’ posture.
  • Notably improved pressure distribution demonstrating a significant decrease of peak pressure points.

The science shows: the best way to avoid pain and stress on your body, is to have a fully variable, adjustable ergonomic bed. You can read more about how we know our beds are ergonomic here, or more on the benefits of ergonomics here.
