A: Mattress prices range greatly: from Rs. 8,000 to Rs. 180,000 for a set. A good night's sleep is one of the best investments you can make, so buy the best mattress you can afford. Keep in mind that most of us spend as much as one-third of our time in bed. Your investment will cost just pennies per night over the next ten years! In fact, a Rs. 40,000 sleep set costs less than Rs. 11 per night (based on a full 10-year warranty).
A: The Better Sleep Council (UK), advises consumers to buy the highest quality bedding they can afford, then replace old bedding every 8-10 years. After these many years, even the best bedding may no longer provide the comfort and support you deserve.
A: Yes! A good foundation (otherwise known as a "boxspring") is as important as a good mattress! It acts much like a large shock absorber, taking a lot of the nightly wear and tear. And it contributes to your comfort and support. Don't put a new mattress on an old foundation. When you select the mattress, purchase its companion foundation. The two are designed to work best together.
A: A good mattress and foundation will support your body at all points and keep your spine in the same posture as when you are standing.
A: Optimizing the level of support the spine receives during the night is paramount to getting quality sleep. Studies show that when the correct amount of support is supplied, the spine remains aligned and a person can enjoy a thorough rest period for the entire night. However, if the spine is not aligned due to a non-supportive sleep surface, a person's back muscles work throughout the night in an attempt to position the spine properly. As a result, they wake up feeling sore and unrested.
A: Give your new sleep set time to "air" upon removal from its plastic packaging. Dispose of all plastic packaging as soon as possible.
