Extra Soft Mattresses and Futons
Who Sleeps On Extra Soft Mattresses?
Extra Soft or Plush mattresses are most widely used by lighter weight side sleepers. Sleepers that are heavier will find a lack of support on an extra soft mattress creating back aches and joint stiffness. When you first lay down on an extra plush mattress, it feels like you are on a cloud. But over time, sleepers that weigh more, over 150 pounds may experience severe dipping and compression that lighter weight sleepers will not experience. Lighter weight sleepers are generally less than 140 pounds. The benefit for a side sleeper to use an extra soft mattress is that it provides the perfect comfort level around the hips and shoulders. Plush and extra soft mattresses and futons are only proper for slender, lightweight people whose body does not require a lot of firm support. The best way to get plush extra soft comfort is in a removable topper made from organic and natural ingredients.
Pillow Toppers For Extra Soft Sleeping
Extra soft mattresses and futons are usually in the form of pillow top mattress. The issue with pillow top mattresses is the pillow top part often fails and creates a big dip in the bed where you sleep. Also, pillow top mattresses have a tendency to sleep hot as they usually contain petrochemical based polyurethane foams in the form of memory and gels.
Quality of Sleep
Our bodies need support to sleep deeply without interruptions during the night. Improper support leads to shorter sleep cycles and an overall lower quality of sleep. The lower quality sleep affects the body's ability to recover from the harshness of daily life, such as stress, car fumes, and harmful chemicals in our environment. Our body is like an ocean absorbing what is around us. This is why we want the most natural and chemical free mattresses and futons in our environment. This adds to our continued health and to a clean and toxic free lifestyle.
