FINDING A MATTRESS THAT IS JUST RIGHT FOR YOU

What is comfortable for one person may not be comfortable for someone else. We all have different needs and the mattress which gives one person the best sleep may not be suitable for another. At Dreams we’ve graded each of our mattresses on their level of comfort, from 'Orthopeadic' to 'Medium Soft'. The scale is specific to us and will hopefully help you find the most suitable mattress for you.

An orthopaedic mattress is designed to provide maximum comfort to your body while also working to gently support your back and joints. It will provide a high level of support to the weight bearing parts of your body, such as the neck, the back, the hips and the lower extremities. Lying on an orthopaedic mattress will help with back issues as it gives better support to the whole body and back in particular, not allowing your midsection to sink in.
