It is best to sleep on a mattress that suits you. A mattress that suits you has the right firmness and offers the right sleeping climate (bed temperature and humidity). But there are more things you should pay attention to when buying a new mattress. In this article, we explain what you could pay attention to.
The support of a mattress is extremely important because that is what it is all about. The resilience in combination with the zones ensures the correct ergonomics (posture), making it extremely important that these zones are in the right places.
If the zones are exactly in the right places, your posture is the best and sleep is also the best. Of course, you sleep best when everything is right and when you are relaxed. A well-fitting mattress has everything you need and allows you to lie down and sleep well.
Zones in mattresses
Most mattresses have zones. This must also be because otherwise there will be far too much pressure on the shoulders and hips when lying sideways so you will always have to turn around. This makes you sleep extremely restless and you do not lie comfortably relaxed. The zones vary from 2 zones to 9 zones, however, a 9-zone mattress is actually not easy to realize.
The zones will then be so close together that if you just lie a little higher or lower in bed, you are no longer in the right zones. The best is a 7 zone mattress. With 7-zone mattresses, the most important parts of the body supported and your weight well distributed.
The zones are hard on pocket spring mattresses.
That is, from one centimeter to the other the next zone begins. With cold foam, this works much more subtly so that the chance of good “ergonomic” strokes is much greater. The zones with cold foam are sloping.
If you look at a cold foam mattress from the side and you look at the zones, you see a kind of wave movement. Memory foam, it works even more subtly. Memory foam creates zones of your unique body per square millimeter. It adapts completely to your body shape.
As a result, you hardly feel any pressure points and your blood flows not blocked anywhere. The comfort of memory foam mattresses is usually better than pocket or cold foam mattresses. It adapts completely to your body shape.

What Makes a Good Mattress a Good Mattress?
One mattress is much better than the other. What is it in that? Is this because of the finish or is it the zones? Resilience is one of the most important things because this provides support. But it is not only the resilience that ensures a pleasant and good location.
Progressive pressure (building backpressure) is at least as important as the zones and resilience. Progressive pressure means for a mattress that the more you press the mattress, the more the counter pressure becomes.
Cold foam mattresses and pocket mattresses have this property and offer a lot of progressive counter pressure. The result is that the mattress can feel relatively soft but you still get a lot of support. A mattress that provides progressive backpressure is definitely a better mattress than one that offers little progressive pressure.
The Size of the Bed
The more space, the more comfort. Space partly determines comfort, so it is recommended that your new bed has a lot of space. Think carefully about the size of your bed. Usually, people assume their old bed size because otherwise, they have to buy everything new.
And yet the latter is worth considering. A bed base supports the mattress and must be reasonably sturdy. With time, most bed bases (especially box springs) oversleep, which means that they offer less support. A good bed base lasts two mattress cycles.
Replace your bed base when in doubt because your bed base does more than you think and choose a spacious bed that meets your requirements.
