FAQ – What mattress is suitable for me?

Unlike the widespread belief that the stiffer the mattress, the better for the back, a clinical study published by the renowned medical journal The Lancet states the most suitable mattress is that of medium stiffness because it adjusts to the natural curves of the spine. On the contrary, mattresses that are too hard or too soft could cause the vertebral muscles to become stiff.

The torman mattresses with 7 zone technology provide balanced support to your spine and conform to your body shape to limit pressure points. Try our models Tip HardTip 3D Visco LuxTip Visco ComfortTiffany ViscoTiffany Visco Duo or Pocket Super.

In general spring mattresses should be avoided where mite proliferation is possible. So, for the allergy sufferer, the best air mattress is best , from which moisture can evaporate quickly. In this respect equally important is the linen as a wrong one could act as a barrier between the structure of the mattress and the contact with the body.

We recommend the Tiffany Visco Duo that has Aegis treated cover which is best for allergics with natural fibers. Alternatively our Tip Modul mattresses are suitable as well as their central zonal parts are without any glue which makes it totally breathable.

Besides finding a suitable mattress with antibacterial, antidusmite and antifungi treatment such as the Tiffany Visco Duo we do recommend to ventilate the room every day and regularly vacuum the mattress to remove all the small dirt.

Too hard: pressure points burden the circulation on the level of shoulders and hips. You change without stopping position. You do not rest.

Right hardness

1. Reduced tension to avoid headaches.

2. Reduced stiffness

3. Natural alignment of the spine

4. Less pressure and less pain in the joint

5. Better alignment head-to-heart-feet, avoiding circulation problems

Memory foam that works great for adults is not suitable for children. The baby’s body does not provide the necessary support, so your little one “immerses” it. In small children it can do more harm than good. Cold foam is a much better choice. Cold foam core mattresses have excellent orthopedic properties. In addition, they help correct thermoregulation. Keeps the baby’s bed fresh and dry (foam is more porous and removes excess heat and moisture). You will also appreciate its resistance to cold foam.

Be careful to wash the mattress cover at least 60 ° C, otherwise your baby will share the crib with a bunch of mites. It is best to wash the cover in boiling water (95 ° C). The cover must also be easily removable and ideally two-piece quilted with a hollow fiber air conditioning layer.

Do you know what the difference between a foam mattress and a modern spring mattress is? None, sleep great on both. It just can’t be an old spring mattress for your grandmother.

Though different foam materials dominate the mattress market , spring manufacturers have not stopped. However, they have incorporated them into the mattresses so that they will definitely not push you .

Which springs are right for you?

1.) Classic spring mattresses have springs spaced across the surface . The mattress is reinforced by a special layer, typically coconut and latex.

Spring mattresses excel in breathability and are therefore also suitable for placement on a solid board .

It lasts even in cold and humid environments, where classic foam mattresses would attract molds and mites.

Get them to a cottage or guest room .

Tip: The Tip Bonell spring mattress has a FlexiFoam® 2 cm foam layer on one side and seven anatomical relaxation zones on the other – choose which side to sleep on.

2.) Pocketed mattresses each have a spring sewn in a separate textile bag, so the springs respond to pressure individually and therefore have better orthopedic properties than conventional spring mattresses. However, they are just as breathable , so you can safely put them on a hardboard.

Tip: Pocket mattresses Vivantis has a core of about 380 active tiled spring. It is double-sided – the softer seven-zone layer on one side and the coconut fiber on the second harder layer.

Modern spring mattresses compete with foam not only with price but with quality . The combination of springs with other materials ensures a comfortable sleep without rolling.

The benefits of spring mattresses

Generally we recommend that your mattress should be at least 20 centimeters longer than your height.

Paul, which is 178 centimeters long, should reach for the mattress at least 200 centimeters long.

The recommended mattress width is 90 centimeters . If you buy a mattress for couples, do not be tempted by the fact that you do not need so much space. Get plenty of room to sleep and always buy a two-mattress at least 180 centimeters wide .

The optimum mattress height is then from 18 to 20 centimeters . The exact number depends on your weight. The more pounds you have, the higher the mattress you need.

FAQ - Mattress

It is said that the classic mattress life is about 7 years . However, you can extend it, for example, with a mattress protector and it also depends on the quality of the original mattress.

Regardless of the mattress life we recommend to change it when you notice that your mattress is deformed (e.g. there are ditches or pits on it) and/or you have pain in the morning after a night’s rest.
