Product FeaturesSleep WellbeingWhy Does Your Mattress Size Matter?

January 12, 2022by Alyssa Villamil0

We all understand the need of personal space at night, but mattress size is sometimes disregarded when it comes to having a good night’s sleep. Did you know that we spend nearly a third of our lives sleeping? In bed, roughly a sixth of the time is spent watching TV or browsing through the internet. Overall, most people will spend half of their lives sleeping, or lying, on their mattresses.

Size is important when it comes to mattresses. While sleeping close to your husband or wife is crucial, you also need adequate space to settle into a deep, peaceful sleep- so you can wake up feeling invigorated and ready for the day ahead.

What Should You Consider When Choosing Your Mattress Size?

Given how much time we spend sleeping—or should spend sleeping—we believe mattress buyers should consider what works best for them depending on the space they have and the space they need.
Size and Height of your Body
The mattress size is important, but so is the size of the sleeper. If the average Australian man is 5'9" or 176cm tall, his feet may hang over the edge of the bed if mattress size is not noted when purchasing one. It's also important to consider your individual sleeping patterns. Some people sleep curled up, while others stretch out. The extra space allows you to stretch out and find the most comfortable sleep position.
Sleep Partner
If you have a sleep partner, whether it's your husband, wife, or overly attached pet, having enough space on the bed for both of you is important; running into each other all night or simply having someone else roll over onto your side can interrupt your sleep and greatly disturb the rest of the night.
Bedroom Size
If your bedroom is small, a huge bed might make it feel claustrophobic and unpleasant. Choosing the proper mattress size can provide you with the extra space you require to move and breathe.
Mattress Height
You may get mattresses as thin as 6 inches and as thick as 16 inches, all of which are tailored to meet your specific needs. If the mattress is on the higher side, some may find it difficult to get out of bed. However, if you chose a mattress on the thinner side, it may cause you back pains and may affect your sleep quality
