Depending on the quality of the model we choose, as well as to some extent the price we will be able to pay for it, it is assumed that a well-chosen mattress with proper use and care serves an average of 5-8 years. “Well chosen” or what? The degree of hardness and resilience of the mattress will have quite a lot to say here. It is customary to assume that the higher the weight of the user, the higher the degree of hardness of the mattress indicated. It’s probably quite logical – the heavier the weight, the greater the pressure and thus the greater the risk of excessive sink in the mattress.
However, it is worth choosing the degree of hardness also in the context of our preferred sleeping position. Hardness is expressed here by a 10-degree scale, where 10 means the highest degree of hardness. If you like to sleep on your belly, the best solution will be a medium-hard mattress with a degree of hardness between 5 and 7. In this position, the centre of gravity is largely shifted to the torso, which in turn may result in a slightly unnatural body position and cause back pain (especially in the cross section). The mattress should therefore not be too soft so that the chest does not sink into it even more.
If you sleep on your side, an improperly chosen mattress can cause both hip and shoulder pain (the highest pressure there). Therefore, people who prefer this position should choose medium soft mattresses (degree of hardness between 3-5). Sleeping on your back is not the most common (apparently only less than 15% of us prefer this position when sleeping), but if you belong to this group, a mattress on a scale of 4-7 will be a good solution for you. This degree of hardness should provide adequate support for the spine, and thus the correct body position. You can find many mattressed online or by typing furniture stores near me in google.
