Mattresses for Overweight People. For those who prefer foam mattresses and are overweight consider the latex mattress or the visco elastic mattress. Because these mattresses have no springs there are no painful pressure points exacerbated by the extra weight. In addition overweight people tend to wear out spring mattresses faster than foam mattresses. When buying a foam mattress select a high-density style, as it will last quite a bit longer. Another good option for overweight people is an air mattress. Once again there are no pressure points causing pain. The firmness is easily adjusted by adding or releasing air. If an overweight person must purchase a spring mattress try to get an inner coil mattress. Their construction is perfectly suited to heavier individuals. A futon mattress is very similar to a regular bed mattress. When shopping for one, consider how firm you want the mattress to be. Below is a guide to the different degrees of firmness in a mattress and the types of brands that make them.
Bedsteads. Bedsteads are what most of us consider a typical bed frame. The mattress support is usually made of wood slats that can be very flexible or tough and rigid. Wire mesh is another material used to make the support. The more rigid and cheap slats are further apart but the gap should not exceed 10cm. In addition, the wider the space between the slats, the more likely your mattress will be to wear out.
Firm mattresses. Firm mattresses fall in 3 categories: firm, extra-firm, ultra-firm. The firm mattresses include the Orbit, Neptune Cotton Only and the Single Foam futon mattresses. Usually, these firm mattresses have very little foam, and are cotton only, giving it the firm feeling. The ones with foam use a denser foam that makes the mattress less soft. These mattresses are great for people who like to sleep on something firm and who need the additional support. The extra-firm mattresses include the Simmons Monarch 2 and the Liberty Futon Mattress. Some of these mattresses are created with very dense layers of foam from top to bottom. Finally, the ultra-firm mattresses are for those that love to sleep on the ground. These mattresses are usually not recommended for a futon frame, but more for a platform bed. These are for people who want that firm feeling of a traditional Japanese futon mattress. The high density of the foam makes these mattresses very heavy and harder to move around.
Medium mattresses. The next category of futon mattresses are characterized as medium in softness. These range from those on the softer side to those on the firmer side. The medium soft mattresses have extra foam like the soft mattresses, but has a bit more polyester to make it slightly firmer than a soft mattress. Good examples of these include the Saturn Futon Mattress, the Haley 90, and the Aries Futon Mattress. The next level up is what are characterized as medium. These include the Phoenix, the Mercury and the Pulsar mattress. Usually, these have layers of foam, but the top layer is a polyester layer making it a bit more firm. This means the mattress wont sink down a lot when you sit on it, but will still be bouncy when lying down. There is more support from these, but the mattresses are not firm. Finally, in the medium category, you have the medium firm mattress. These include the Simmons Monarch, the Galaxy Interspring, and the Cotton Coil mattresses. A lot of times, these mattresses will have an inner spring, similar to a regular bed mattress allowing the mattress to be more firm. The coils are usually surrounded by foam making these mattresses comfortable, but still firm. When the mattress does not have springs, the inner core is a lot thicker, making the mattress less plush and more firm. These medium firm mattresses are usually recommended by doctors since they are firm enough to give you more back support, but still soft enough for your body to merge into.
