best mattresses in india

Sleep is as essential a part of human survival as food and water. If a person goes even three to four days without sleep, he can get dysfunctional. Adults need about eight hours of sound sleep every night, but the exact amount varies from person to person. For a good night’s sleep, one should always use a mattress conducive to their body and sleeping patterns. A bad or unsuitable mattress can greatly spoil your sleep and damage your body. Some people with certain specific conditions also needs special mattresses to ensure that their medical situation is not further aggravated. Mattresses come in a large variety of sizes, internal structure and material, and each make has some specific characteristics that are suit aspecific kind of need. It is important to be fully educated about each type so as to be able to make an informed decision and not end up with the wrong mattress.

Mattress Buying Guide

To illustrate exactly how different mattress can be and how each type serves a different purpose, an exhaustive guide has been compiled and presented below:

1. Material

Mattresses are composed of two layers – the support layer and the comfort layer. The support layer forms the core or bulk of the mattress and the comfort layer is the upper, covering layer. Support layer can be of spring(Bonnell, offset, continuous or pocket), coir, foam, latex or air, while the comfort layer can be foam(polyfoam or memory) or latex(natural or synthetic). Hybrid mattresses employ pocketed coils support layer with foam or latex comfort layer, which eliminates the disadvantages of both coil and spring. Coir provides firmness and ventilation. Airbeds are highly customisable and can be inflated or deflated according to the sleeper’s needs.

2. Weight

Sleepers with greater weight prefer firm mattresses over soft ones as they sleep hotter and prefer lower sinkage and greater ventilation.

3. Sleeping position

Stomach sleepers should use the firmest mattresses, back sleepers require medium firmness while side sleepers need the softest mattresses. These are the best configurations spine support of each kind of sleeper.

4. Sinkage and conformation

Softer mattresses sink more and results in lower airflow and ventilation, making the sleeper hot. Sinkage is measured by ILD(Indentation load deflection). Greater the ILD, firmer the mattress. However, greater softness will mean greater conformation to body and so, a more comfortable sleep.

5. Airflow

The firmer the mattress, the greater the ventilation. A soft mattress sinks and wraps around the sleeper’s body, cutting of the airflow. Also, the comfort layer of the mattress should be breathable for ventilation.

6. Size

Mattresses are found in a number of sizes according to bed size like twin, twin XL(both single), full(double), queen, king and California king in order of increasing size. Choose the mattress you need according to the number of people who will sleep on it, if you allow pets, how much space the individual sleeper needs, etc.

7. Thickness

Mattress thickness can vary from less than five inches to more than 15. The standard height is ten inches. The greater the weight of the sleeper,the greater should should be the thickness of the mattress.

8. Motion isolation

This refers to whether movement of one individual on one side of the bed is transmitted to someone on the other side. Greater the motion isolation, lesser the disturbance one sleeper feels due to the other’s movement. Motion isolation increases as we go from spring to latex to foam to memory foam.

9. Durability

Durability of a mattress is indicated less by its price and more by the warranty period. It depends on the materials used and the binding technique. Latex lasts longer than foam, spring durability depends on coil gauge and tufting keeps the mattress together better than adhesives.

10. Allergenicity

The mattress should be such that it should not cause allergy to the sleeper. Many people are allergic to latex, while memory foam uses chemicals that might cause a reaction in some. The off-gassing emissions of mattresses may often be intolerable for some. Gather sufficient information regarding these before investing in a mattress.

Innerspring mattresses are the traditional ones that most of us will have used, and in India, coir mattresses were the most common among the older generations. Nowadays, people are going more towards foam and memory foam due to them being orthopaedically secure.
