As everyone is different, it is important to recognise which type of king bed and mattress is required. Most manufacturers make beds in varying degrees of tension; soft, medium, and firm. In general terms, the heavier the sleeper, the firmer the mattress needs to be, but this can be difficult to gauge as, like the sizing issue, there is no standardised measure of tension. The height of the bed should also be taken into consideration as some beds, especially divans with drawers, can be quite high. It was once commonplace to believe that the firmest beds were best for bad backs; however, recent research shows they could actually make some conditions worse. “Orthopaedic” does not mean that it has been recommended by the medical establishment; rather that it is made with the strongest 12.5 gauge spring and is therefore normally the firmest on offer. The best option for most is simply a supportive and comfortable mattress which achieves the best sleeping position possible. A bed that is too soft can cause back pain due to slumping; the side effects of an overly hard bed are aches on pressure points like shoulders and hips. The ideal scenario should allow the spine to remain in horizontal alignment and the mattress should preferably mould to the body shape whilst remaining supportive.
Different mattress types provide different support. Types include innerspring, hybrid and memory foam. Innerspring mattresses use a steel coil system and the more coils there are, the more support the mattress offers. Memory foam contours to the shape of the sleeper and then returns to its original form, while hybrid mattresses combine innerspring support with foam technology. You can pair your mattress with a for additional height and support but whether you opt for bed and mattress sets or individual pieces, you'll be able to find the perfect mattress to provide support night after night.
