A Guide to Finding the Perfect Mattress Thickness

Are you on the lookout for the ideal mattress but feeling overwhelmed by all the options? At Sleep.8, we understand the significance of selecting the perfect mattress to ensure a restful night's sleep. In this guide, we'll delve into the factors that should influence choosing your mattress thickness and how you should start your journey..

  • Always Start with the Perfect Pillow
    Before turning your attention toward mattress thickness, it's crucial to start your sleep setup with the perfect pillow. Your pillow plays a vital role in supporting your head, neck, and shoulders, aligning your spine, and ensuring optimal comfort.

    When you start by picking the right pillow, you’ll be able to test mattresses in the position you sleep each night. This will help you determine what support and comfort you need for a good night's sleep.

  • Consider Comfort and Support
    Once you've found the perfect pillow, it's time to focus on selecting the right mattress thickness. Comfort and support are paramount when choosing a mattress, and thickness plays a significant role in achieving both.

    A thicker mattress often offers more cushioning and contouring, ideal for those seeking a plush feel or requiring additional support for pressure points.

  • Evaluate Your Sleeping Position 
    Your preferred sleeping position is another crucial factor to consider when determining mattress thickness. Side sleepers may benefit from a thicker mattress that cushions the shoulders and hips, promoting proper spinal alignment and alleviating pressure points.

    Back and stomach sleepers, on the other hand, may find a medium-thick mattress to be supportive for maintaining a neutral spine position. For this level of support, try out one of the Sleep.8 Tech mattresses.
