CHOOSING YOUR PERFECT MATTRESS
Vispring’s handmade beds offer a huge range of options – from different fillings to multiple layers of handmade springs. And then there’s the choice of different mattress tensions too. These simple steps will help find the right one for you.
TEST THEM ALL OUT
Nothing beats going in store and trying out our beds for yourself – bounce, squish and roll on as many as you like. Try a lot of different combinations too (spring tension, filling, size) and work out what’s best for you.
TAKE YOUR TIME
Finding the perfect bed doesn’t happen instantly. So there’s no need to rush. Test each bed for at least 10 minutes (with your partner, if you share). Try and get into your normal sleeping position and turn over a couple of times to see if it feels right.
CHECK THE SUPPORT
Vispring beds come in four different spring tensions – soft, medium, firm and extra firm. But we can combine two tensions for each side of your bed. Perfect for when you and your partner are different statures.
Here’s a quick guide to finding the right spring tension.
Up to 11 stone (70kg): Soft
11-16 stone (70-102kg): Medium
16-20 stone (102-127kg): Firm
Above 20 stone (127kg): Extra Firm
Your spine will bow downwards and cause pressure around your hips. A good test is to see if you can slide your hand beneath your back – if not, it’s too soft.
If your spine bows upwards and there’s pressure around your shoulders and knees, the mattress is too firm. In this case, your hand will easily slide between the mattress and the hollow of your back.
Your spine should be straight and your whole body should feel evenly supported.
MEASURE YOUR ROOM
Getting the biggest bed that can fit in your room means more space to rest and less sleep disturbance. So, grab the measuring tape and work out exactly what you can fit in your room.
You spend a third of your life in bed. And a good night’s sleep will contribute to your well-being in the long run. So look at your bed purchase as a worthwhile investment.
