How to choose the best double mattress for you
If this is you, we would recommend a soft mattress as your sleeping position can put pressure your spine. Ideally you need a mattress is going to mould to your body shape and give you the support you need.
If you find yourself sleeping on your back regularly, you could benefit from a medium mattress. Most of our memory foam mattresses come in a medium or firm and are ideal for back sleepers thanks to their responsive properties.
While front sleep isn’t recommended, some of us can’t break the habit. If you can’t resist, opt for a firm or extra firm mattress as it will keep you comfortable and stop you sinking into it, which would cause added pressure on your spine.
