So, where to start when choosing your small double mattress? Well, choosing the best small double mattress for you is made easier by the amount of choice we have available. Your final decision should always consider the position which you most frequently sleep - this will help us determine the right firmness rating of your mattress.
For our side sleepers you’ll want to select a mattress with a soft to medium firmness rating. These cushioned mattresses allow you to take the weight off and sink into a deep sleep after a long day. A medium firm mattress is also an ideal choice if you switch up your sleeping position throughout the night, keeping your joints as supported as possible so you wake up feeling refreshed. If sleeping flat on your back or front is your preferred position, then we'd advise you opt for a firm to extra firm mattress. These firm mattresses help to keep your spine aligned and avoid a restless night’s sleep. A extra firm mattress is also an excellent option if you regularly suffer from back pain.
