The firmness of a mattress contributes to your quality of sleep and overall health. The right level of support in a mattress alleviates pressure points in the body and provides consistent support for the body to rest fully. The firmness level of a mattress ranges from soft to very firm and can be a personal choice. Many people, especially those who are larger, prefer heavy-duty mattresses as opposed to soft mattresses as it prevents the body from sinking down. Here are the most popular health reasons why a heavy-duty mattress may be the right choice for you.
Better for your spine
A heavy-duty mattress prevents your spine from becoming misaligned from sinking as well as supporting the other important parts of your body - the shoulders, hips and legs. Relieving pressure from these areas helps us relax into a deeper sleep. We spend a third of our lives in bed, so a good night's sleep is essential to our overall health.
Best for back sleepers
Are you a back sleeper or occasional back sleeper? Some people prefer to sleep on their backs rather than their sides or stomach. A firm mattress may be the best choice for you as it supports the whole of the back and prevents sinking in the middle. You may wake up more refreshed with no stiffness by simply changing your mattress to a firm one. Your body should be uniformly distributed across the mattress for the most peaceful sleep for your body.
Better sleep for heavier people
Weight distribution is a major factor in the quality of sleep. Bodyweight needs to be properly distributed to help us have the best quality of sleep. If you have heavier body weight and you use a soft mattress, your body is more liable to sag down into the mattress. A body that slumps into parts of a mattress will not equal a good night's sleep and your joints and muscles will not be equally aligned as you sleep. To prevent this, a heavy-duty mattress such as the popular Brick Mattress could be a great choice for you. Featuring multiple layers of luxury filling and an extra durable spring system, this mattress is designed for those who want reinforced support.
