King mattresses are a luxury that everyone should indulge in if space allows. They are very spacious and make you feel like you are sleeping in a luxurious hotel bed every night of the week. The extra room is also convenient for mums and dads with sneaky kids who jump into bed with them during the night.

Comfort

Comfort is subjective. It is very difficult to assume that a mattress will be comfortable for another person just because it is comfortable for you. This is why, at Sleep Suite, we offer three different comfort levels for each mattress we sell. Our comfort levels provide optimal comfort and support ensuring that everyone has a comfortable night's sleep on one of our mattresses. Our two comfort layers are:

Lush (Soft-Medium)

Lush mattresses are our soft-medium mattresses in each range. They yield more readily to pressure or weight and provide a higher degree of contour, allowing the body to sink luxuriously into the mattress. The quilt top used on a Lush mattress is created with greater foam layers and spacing between the stitching, to give a less resistive top resulting in greater ability for the mattress to mould to the body. A Lush mattress consists of flexible, thick foams and usually has greater layers of foam compared to Grand mattresses. Lush mattresses are suited to individuals who seek a softer, more luxurious sleep.

Grand (Medium –Firm)

Grand mattresses have a firmer surface than the Lush, they are the medium-firm mattresses in our range. They have specific layers of foam included that allow them to contour to the body to a degree as well as continuing to maintain surface stability under body weight. Using dense, thicker foams inside the mattress and tighter sewing patterns in the quilt creates more firmness. Grand mattresses usually have a lower profile than Lush mattresses. Grand mattresses are best suited to individuals who require stability in their mattress because they do not contour to the body as much as a Lush mattress.

Personal comfort versus your body's needs – How to choose the right mattress firmness for you:

Your body requires a stable, supportive sleep solution to allow you to maintain a natural, optimal posture while you are sleeping. The comfort levels we offer provide you with the balance of selecting your preferred firmness level without compromising your body's needs.

A very soft mattress does not provide your body with optimal support. Your body sinks into the mattress with very little resistance, resulting in poor neck and back positioning and subsequent neck and back pain. All Sleep Suite mattresses provide adequate support and stability however if you do prefer a softer more luxurious sleep we recommend our soft mattresses.

Alternatively, a very firm mattress could potentially create negative pressure in specific areas of the body, resulting in aches and pains and an interrupted sleep cycle. Our firm mattresses provide the right balance of stability and support without causing aches and pains and are recommended if you prefer to sleep on a firmer mattress.

If you prefer the equilibrium a classic feel provides, we recommend you check out our medium mattresses.

What is a Body Signature?

Your body signature is the impression your body makes on the surface comfort layers of the mattress where the main weight of your body (your hip area) has been providing pressure on your mattress. Body signatures are normal and indicate that your mattress is adapting and conforming to your body shape. Your body signature is your body making your new mattress more comfortable. Like wearing in a new pair of shoes, you wear in your new mattress for greater comfort and support. It is important to note that it takes approximately 30 consecutive days of sleeping on your new mattress for your body to adjust to the feel and support of a new sleep system. It is normal for your body signature to cause a slight dip in your mattress and the middle area of your sleeping surface to be slightly raised.

Can you have too much body signature?

Yes. Poor quality or old slat bases inevitably sag in the middle. This exaggerates your body signature to the detriment of your postural well being. When using a slat base, make sure the slats are in good condition and no more than 70mm apart (50mm is ideal) and no more than 25mm thick otherwise it may not be supporting your new Sleep Suite mattress correctly. A good slat base also has a centre rail running from head to foot as well as at least one centre leg offering adequate stability and support for your mattress.

How to care for your mattress:

There are a few small things we recommend you do to keep your mattress feeling comfortable, fresh and feeling great.

 

Pillow Talk

Tapered (standard) or Contoured- which pillow suits me?

Side sleepers usually prefer contour pillows because they support the shoulder and neck area. Pillows with tapered sides like the standard pillow usually suit stomach and back sleepers.
