Here’s the perfect place to start. Everyone is different; some appreciate the cosy cushioning of a soft mattress, others want something firmer. Ultimately, you’re looking for something that gives you a good, comfortable night’s sleep, year after year, so finding the right level of comfort and support is key.
At helmii, sleep wellness lies at the heart of everything we do, that’s why we offer a range of mattresses to suit your every need. After all, when it comes to getting a great night’s sleep, one size does not fit all. Whether you are looking for a traditional pocket-sprung mattress or mattress with a memory foam layer, we are sure to have something to suit.
Each mattress has its own size, type and firmness rating, so it’s important to choose the right mattress for you. Small single mattresses are ideal for children and guests while super king size mattresses allow additional room for singles and couples alike.
Bonnel or open coil spring mattresses are affordable and versatile and come with metal springs that run down the width of the mattress for comfort. Pocket sprung mattresses are similar but come with fabric-encased individual springs for enhanced comfort and no ‘roll together’.
The most important factor to consider when sleeping is spine alignment. You want to achieve a neutral spine exactly the same as when you sit or stand correctly - therefore choosing the correct tension for the right support is crucial.
MATTRESS FOR FRONT SLEEPERS
You’ll usually need a mattress with more support so there are fewer gaps between your body and the mattress. The aim is to maintain a neutral position in your spine and neck - consider going without a pillow if necessary.
MATTRESS FOR SIDE SLEEPERS
You’ll need a softer spring to allow your shoulders and hips to sink into the mattress, keeping the spine straight without causing pressure points on the joints.
MATTRESS FOR BACK SLEEPERS
Check that the tension of the mattress allows the bed to cushion right into your lower back so there’s no gap. Try sliding a hand underneath the base of your spine; if it’s easy to do, the mattress may be too firm; if there is no room, the mattress may be too soft and not giving you the right support.
