The Different Mattress Comfort Levels Explained

Mattresses are not created the same. Because people have different requirements, comfort levels also vary.

Secrets to Choosing a Better Mattress

With the right mattress, sleep can make a lot of difference. It doesn’t have to be a really expensive mattress, ¬†though. But it should have the following characteristics:

1) Good spinal alignment. It should be the type of mattress that offer relief from pressure points and provide proper spinal alignment. You will notice this when your hips and shoulders are supported well, as you sleep in your most favorite position. If you don’t wake up with a sore back or any feelings of discomfort, then the mattress is doing a good job keeping your back aligned.

What To Look For in an Organic Mattress?

As there are different types of mattress, including those that are presented and offered as “organic” when they are still synthetic and filled with chemically processed materials, it’s always important to set a criteria or come up with standards when picking out a good organic mattress.

Serendipity Mattress

This mattress is totally different because it is made up of compound balloons instead of the usual flat foam surface one sees and expects from a bed. The balloons are soft and flexible, and they are, in fact, molded from polyurethane foam, so it’s not like you would be sleeping on an uncomfortable surface.¬†So that the foam doesn’t disintegrate, they are covered in nylon lycra spandex. Tied altogether, a polymide net holds the balloons so that it forms into an ideal sleep environment.
