It’s important to find the right mattress for you and your sleeping position, as this will give you the best chance for achieving a deep refreshing sleep, night after night. You’ll probably have the same mattress for many years, and that’s a lot of sleep! Therefore, it’s important to take the time to research what type of 4ft 6in double mattress is most suitable to your individual needs and sleeping style.
Memory foam mattresses contain viscoelastic materials which respond to your body heat. The mattress embraces every curve to help keep your spine aligned while you sleep, relieving pressure points. If you sleep in various positions, then a memory foam double mattress could be a great purchase.
ActiGel mattresses respond to your body throughout the night. They move in accordance with you, moulding to your individual shape. Plus, they ensure you don't get too hot or too cold. This ongoing approach keeps your spine aligned, ensuring a comfortable night's sleep.
Latex mattresses combine traditional mattress materials, such as foam, with latex to improve support. The natural elasticity of the latex material helps to keep your spine in a neutral position throughout the night. It does this by responding accurately to your sleeping position. With quick response properties, any movement is accounted for and you can move around while still being supported. For individuals who frequently wake up with a sore back, a latex double mattress can potentially help ease this.
About two thirds of people sleep on their sides and the rest either prefer to sleep on their stomachs or backs. With that said, it’s vital to understand how your sleeping position relates to the type of support you need.
If you sleep on your side, you’ll most likely require a soft to medium mattress that responds to pressure points. Spring mattresses are ideal in this instance. The soft/medium double mattress alleviates any strenuous pressure created by your shoulders and ensures that your spine is kept as straight as possible.
For people who sleep on their back, we recommend a firm mattress that provides enough back support. The sturdy structure of a traditional spring mattress ensures you won’t dip into it, and it also keeps your body healthily aligned – all this while still offering substantial levels of comfort.
If you sleep on your stomach, a medium to firm double mattress is ideal. They prevent your hips and upper body from being at an unnatural angle. This helps ensure you get the best night’s sleep possible.
And remember, our 40-Night Sleep Guarantee means you can swap your mattress for another if it doesn’t feel quite right (Ts & Cs apply). If you’d like any further advice on finding the best double mattress that suits you, take a look at our mattress and bed buying guides.
