Because it will accompany you for at least 3,650 nights, the choice of your mattress is vital! In foam, latex, spring, flexible or firm, to choose the one that suits you, here are some ways to find the rare pearl!

Don't choose a random mattress

Foam mattresses : Of synthetic origin, there are three categories. Polyether foams offer an average density of 16 kg / m3 to 25 kg / m3. These are often first-rate mattresses with basic comfort, therefore avoid for a quality daily bedding. The second category concerns high resilience polyurethane foams. With a density between 30 kg / m3 and 55 kg / m3, these are quality foams that allow good comfort. Finally, viscoelastic foams offer high-end technology, because they are shape memory foams that will allow a better distribution of the pressure points of the body. Spring mattresses : Biconical springs are the most popular because they are resistant. However, they do not offer sleeping independence. The pocket spring technology consists of enclosing each spring in a bag so that it is independent of the others. A process that provides a lot of comfort. Independence is optimal in a pocket spring mattress. In memory foam as well as in latex, the sleeping independence will always be of lower quality than in a pocket sprung mattress. Finally, mattresses fitted with multispire or multiactive springs provide uniform support. Note that for spring mattresses, the higher the number of these, the more your mattress will guarantee good support. Latex mattresses : Undeformable over time, this technology tends to develop more and more on the bedding market. There are very few natural latex mattresses, synthetic is more widely used. Latex mattresses offer good firmness and adapt to all types of morphology.

Choose a mattress suited to your body type

Morphological tables : In order to choose the mattress that suits you, you will find morphological tables (weight / size index) in the bedding stores. Generally, the lighter a person is, the softer the mattress should be. The heavier the person, the firmer the mattress support. The density and thickness of the mattress : A too low density means that there is not enough material in the heart of the mattress. Because of the weight of the body, the heat and the moisture evacuated every night, an insufficiently dense mattress sags quickly. The foam and latex mattresses have an average thickness of between 15 and 20 cm. Prefer a large thickness, which is a guarantee of quality filling. For spring mattresses, whose thickness is generally between 20 and 25 cm, choose those that exceed 23 cm.

Distinguish the reception of support

The welcome corresponds to the first sensation. It is linked to the filling of the mattress (wool, linen, silk). The richer it is, the more comfortable and soft the welcome will be. Support, on the other hand, is the heart of the mattress. It is linked to the supporting technologies that compose it. If hospitality is important, remember that it is support that must be taken into consideration as a priority when choosing your bedding.

What budget for your mattress?

It is difficult to find a correct mattress for less than 350 €, you will have to bet on a budget of 500 € on average for a good quality product. Prices can go up to € 900 or even fly up to € 2000 for luxury models but it is not necessarily necessary to bet on such a budget for a very good value for money.

Don't buy your mattress without trying it

This is the golden rule. Lie on your back and perceive the sensations that your body sends back to you. You should not feel pressure points, pain, let alone unpleasant impressions. Measure the firmness. If you manage to slip your hand between your pelvis and the mattress, it is because it is too firm for you and if your elbow sinks easily, it is that it is not enough. On the other hand, if turned to the side, your shoulder is comfortably placed on the mattress, it is that the firmness suits you. If you sleep in pairs, also take the time to try your mattress together. And to ensure restful sleep and freedom of movement, bet on XXL dimensions. Small tip, the length of your bed should be at least 15 cm longer than your size and a larger bed ensures more restful sleep. If you can, choose a 160 cm wide bed rather than 140 cm.
