Finding the right mattress for your full-size bed is crucial for a good night’s sleep. Here’s how to choose a full mattress that provides both quality and comfort. Mattress Features
The fill, firmness and top layer of your full-size mattress affect how your body is supported while you sleep. Consider the following features to find the most comfortable mattress for yourself: ● Firmness.
A firm or extra firm mattress has little to no give, meaning your body will not sink into the mattress. A plush or ultra-plush mattress is softer and more cushioned. Keep your preference in mind, but also consider that a softer mattress may not be supportive enough if you have back issues.
The most common fillings are innerspring (steel coils) and foam. A full-size memory foam mattress
can conform to your body. It evenly disperses your weight, providing a more supportive surface. It’s a good option for people with body aches and pains. This filling is also more resistant to bed bugs, mold and bacteria.
● Surface Plushness.
A full-size pillow-top mattress
has additional padding stitched on top for extra plushness. A Euro-top is like a pillow-top, except the extra layer lines up with the edges of the mattress, giving it a more streamlined look. If you select one of these models, keep in mind you will need extra-deep sheets.
The design and foundation of your bed frame will determine whether you need a full mattress and box spring set. If you have a platform bed frame, you can select the mattress alone. If your bed frame doesn’t have a built-in foundation, choose a full-size mattress set that adds a box spring for support.
For a simple solution to a better night’s sleep, consider a full-size mattress topper
. You can add a layer of plushness without the expense of a new bed.
