Do you sink into your mattress too much when lying down? Do you feel stuck whenever you toss, turn, and try to move from your mattress? Do you often wake up with aches and pains, mainly in your back, shoulders, and neck? If your answer to all these questions is yes, then your mattress might be saggy or too soft for your needs.
A firm mattress will eventually get softer as it ages. It can also be too soft for your needs upfront. A soft mattress is comfortable for many sleepers. However, this may not provide the right amount of support for heavy stomach and back sleepers.
If your sleeping surface is already too old and saggy, it’s time to look for a new mattress. However, if you’re still not ready for an immediate replacement, here are some things that you can do to make your soft mattress a little bit firmer.
In case your mattress is still new, the fastest way to replace it is by checking your mattress trial and warranty policies.
Generally, mattresses in a box in Singapore come with at least a month's trial period. During this period, you are free to check whether the mattress suits your needs or not. If your new mattress causes you aches and pains, you could exchange it for a firmer mattress.
You may connect with the retailer’s customer service team to find out more about their specific trial and return policies so you can make the most of your mattress trial period.
In case your mattress has long passed its trial period but is still under warranty, you may still reach out to the manufacturer or retailer to check the warranty coverage.
A mattress topper is an excellent solution to making your lumpy and saggy mattress conducive to sleeping. A mattress topper is two to four inches thick and can provide enough cushioning to even out the saggy parts of the sleeping surface.
Mattress toppers come in a variety of sizes, firmness levels, and materials, so you’ll have more choices to select from when determining what fits your needs.
Sometimes, your mattress becomes too soft or saggy because it lacks solid support underneath.
If you notice that your bed frame slats are positioned far from each other, try adding a plywood or MDF sheet underneath your mattress. This can give you a solid and even base, which can make your sleeping surface more supported.
Positioning plywood under your mattress can also prevent premature sagging.
If your mattress is still not up for replacement, changing your bed base may help. This will also be helpful once you buy a new mattress.
A solid bed base can make your bed feel firmer compared to when you are using a divan base with springs. This is because a sprung divan moves with your mattress as you toss and turn.
Sometimes, what causes your mattress to feel too soft for your needs is not the mattress itself but the bed frame. As your bed frame ages, its slats start to weaken. They may also start to break or disintegrate.
When buying a new bed frame, look for one with more slats to hold the weight of your mattress.
Mattresses, such as those made from memory foam, are sensitive to temperature. When the temperature is high, memory foam mattresses become softer and more contoured. When the temperature decreases, the foam material can feel firmer and more supportive.
You may lower the temperature of your room by adjusting the thermostat or turning on the fan. It’s also good to allow air to enter your room once in a while. If the temperature is especially humid, the extra moisture can soften your mattress. Opening your windows or letting it be exposed to the sun can help you get rid of the excess moisture in your mattress.
Flipping or rotating your mattress can help maximise its lifespan. By doing this, you distribute the pressure that your mattress receives. Check the manufacturer’s instructions or read our guide to determine whether you should flip or rotate your mattress.
If everything else fails, look for a new mattress. An old mattress begins to lose its shape and becomes unsupportive.
Once your mattress becomes too worn out, any other method, including buying a mattress topper, won’t do any good.
Generally, a mattress can last from 6 to 10 years, depending on its construction and usage. If your mattress is over 6 years old, it’s time to look for a new sleeping solution to improve the quality of your sleep.
Finding the right mattress firmness based on your needs depends on three factors: your sleeping position, body type and weight, and comfort preferences.
For side sleepers, a relatively soft mattress can offer enough support for your pressure points without affecting the neutral alignment of your spine. Back and stomach sleepers will benefit more from a firm mattress.
Heavier sleepers will also need a firmer mattress to ensure the right amount of support and pressure relief. A taller mattress can also provide enough support while ensuring the durability of the mattress. This is because a taller mattress has more materials that can hold the pressure exerted on its surface. Petite sleepers may require a softer mattress to properly contour their pressure points.
Your preferences will also play a huge role in choosing the right mattress firmness level. When buying a new mattress at Somnuz, you can get a good feel of your mattress in our experience centre or try your Somnuz mattress at home during the trial period if you shop online.
There are many reasons why you need a firm mattress to sleep on. From supporting your body to relieving pressure, a firm mattress can do so much to help you achieve your best night’s rest. If your mattress isn’t firm enough for your needs, you may try the steps that we mentioned above to improve the feel of your sleeping surface.
