Good posture is essential to a good night’s sleep. Whether you are standing up or lying down, your spine should always be aligned. This is because a straight spine puts less strain on your hips and shoulders. Since no two spines are the same, this is one decision that must be made laying down. You and your partner may have different requirements, so we can even tailor each side of the same mattress to a different level of firmness. For this reason, we believe it is essential you visit one of our bed experts to ensure you select the mattress that gives you the best sleeping posture.
We spend roughly a third of our lives in bed, between six and eight hours each night. Beds can be large or small, firm or soft, however, if they are uncomfortable your health and wellbeing suffer. The National Bed Federation recommends that a bed is changed every ten years, so this is one decision that you need to invest some time into.
