In early December, the San Antonio City Council unanimously approved an ordinance to protect shoppers by regulating the sale of used and refurbished mattresses. I created these tests to help you understand how the mattress reacts in various locations, positions, and pressures. Lying on back – with my weight spread evenly across the mattress in a normal lying position I saw 1-1.5″ of sinkage. Sitting on edge (aggressive) – while sitting on the immediate edge of the mattress I saw 3-3.5″ of sinkage. The mattress is able to maintain a stable and balanced push-back, providing sufficient spine alignment.
Prefer a medium to slightly firmer mattress – coming in at a 6.5 out of 10 on the firmness scale (10 being the most firm) the GhostBed has a medium to slightly firm feel. When first lying down on the mattress it will feel closer to a 7 out of 10. After resting on it for a while, the mattress will adjust and feel softer than before, settling into the 6.5 out of 10 range. Want great support – this mattress does a great job of supporting your body from head to toe. I never once felt as if any part of the mattress wasn’t able to hold my body in place, including sleeping very near the edge.
If you get the recommended 8 hours of sleep per night, you will spend at least 1/3rd of your life in that mattress. That means if you keep that mattress for 9 years (which is about the average), 3 of those years will be spent on it. However, many of us don’t think about our mattresses and how it impacts our lives every day. SUPPORT – You want the mattress to hold you in proper alignment from head to toe, so you don’t wake up with a back ache.
COMFORT – You don’t want the mattress to cause pressure to your body, which causes tossing and turning, which means you wake up tired. If a mattress is too warm (or sometimes even too cold), that can interrupt your sleep. You’ll notice that the mattress dips down around her shoulders and hips, but her spine is in proper alignment. If the mattress were too hard, her hips would be pushed up and her shoulders would be pushed up, and her spine would not be straight. The same exact consequences occur if a mattress is too soft, and you’re in it like a hammock. You want a mattress to contour to the shape of your body to hold it in its neutral alignment.
The second most important criteria to selecting the right mattress is comfort (or as you may hear it called, pressure relief). If you find a mattress that keeps you in proper alignment which doesn’t cause pressure to your body, you’ve found a great mattress for you. Like department stores, furniture stores will also often have a section dedicated to mattresses.
