Understanding Mattress Types

1. Memory Foam These mattresses are celebrated for their contouring properties. Ideal for those who love a mattress that moulds to their body, memory foam also offers motion isolation – perfect if you share your bed.

2. Innerspring The classic choice for those who prefer a firmer feel, innerspring mattresses offer robust support with a bouncy feel, thanks to the coil springs inside.

3. Hybrid A combination of innerspring and foam, hybrid mattresses offer the best of both worlds. They're perfect for couples with differing sleep preferences.

4. Latex Natural latex mattresses are eco-friendly and hypoallergenic, offering a unique buoyant quality that relieves pressure points while providing support.

Size Matters

From single to super king, the size of your mattress is crucial. Consider your room size, if you're sharing the bed, and your sleeping habits. At Direct Beds 2 U, we offer a range of sizes, ensuring there's a perfect fit for everyone. If you require a custom mattress size give us a call and we are able to handcraft bespoke mattresses.

Firmness and Your Sleeping Position

1. Side Sleepers Typically, softer mattresses are better for side sleepers, as they cushion the shoulders and hips.

2. Back Sleepers Medium firmness is generally ideal for back sleepers, providing a balance of support and comfort.

3. Stomach Sleepers Firmer mattresses are recommended for stomach sleepers to avoid back strain.
