Latex Mattress Australia makes a number of different models of mattress to meet the comfort and support needs of almost anyone. Our mattresses are created using latex in various degrees of density. People with a high body weight would generally need a firm (higher density latex) mattress. Lighter people, children and older people will tend to choose a somewhat softer system.
When deciding if a mattress is too hard, too soft or just right, you’re essentially looking at two factors – support and comfort.
The line of your spine should be straight when you lie on your side, and maintain its natural curve when you lie on your back. If your mattress is too hard or too soft, your spine won’t be straight.
If the bed is too hard, you’ll get pressure points at the heavier part of your body. This can reduce blood circulation and signals your body to turn over, while the muscles in your back and neck have to work harder to keep your spine straight. After tossing around and working hard to keep your spine straight all night, you won’t feel as refreshed and relaxed when you wake.
If the bed’s too soft, you’ll need more effort to roll over, your spine won’t be properly aligned and it can also cause tension as your muscles work to compensate for lack of support.
