Everyone has a unique body—which also means they have unique sleeping needs. For people who are overweight, a quality mattress can be the difference between a restful and healthy night’s sleep and feeling tired and lethargic throughout the day. To make sure you have the right mattress for your size, what should you look for in the ideal mattress? Here’s what to look for in the best mattress for heavy people.
The nightly rigor of the mattress is not something you should ignore. That’s especially true if excess weight puts more pressure on the mattress on a regular basis. Overweight people should look for sturdy, high-quality mattress materials that provide the firmness they need and can consistently offer that firmness for years to come.
How will you know when you’re dealing with quality mattress materials? Research. A quality mattress website will gladly put up a list of its materials. Individual product descriptions will tell you exactly what you can expect from a mattress order. At Swift Bed, we offer mattresses that include gel-infused memory foam and Talalay latex, both more than capable of handling the nightly work of sleeping for people across all weight ranges.
When you have extra weight, that weight can sometimes serve as literal insulation, keeping you warmer at night than might be comfortable. It’s important to feel comfortable and cool to get a good night’s sleep, which is why no one should ignore the cooling effect of their mattress—or lack thereof.
It’s tempting to think of a warm, cozy mattress as a great way to fall asleep. This isn’t always the case. A cooling effect on the mattress helps simulate the nightly rhythm of cool weather outdoors, which is how people have learned to sleep throughout the years. With a comfortable blanket and a cool mattress, you’ll be better able to get the night’s sleep you want.
Much of the cooling effect of your mattress comes from where your body meets the mattress itself. That’s why we created a Cooling Gel Infused Mattress that features cooling gel within a comfortable layer of memory foam (which can otherwise be a material that traps heat). To further help with heat dissipation, our mattresses feature a premium Talalay latex surface layer. Latext is a highly breathable surface that keeps airflow moving and keeps heat out.
Whether you’re looking for the best mattress for heavy people or you simply want a mattress that will handle the pressure you put on it every night, a long warranty can help ensure you get your money’s worth.
We recommend at least a 10-year warranty. Going ten years between mattress investments means you’ll have a full decade’s worth of worry-free rest every single night. Ad if you don’t, then you can use a high-quality warranty to ensure that you eventually get yourself a mattress that can provide that.
In many ways, the best mattress for overweight people is similar to what makes a good mattress for anyone: consistency, durability, and a cooling effect that makes sleep comfortable.
If you want a great mattress that checks all of these boxes, our Swift Mattress is an ideal match. Shop today!
According to a survey, 74% of us sleep on our sides, yet only 65% of us say we get a “restful night’s sleep” three times per week. Why the discrepancy? It may be that many side sleepers don’t know which mattresses work best for them. That leads us to a very important question—one that can impact the way you experience a third of your life: are memory foam mattresses good for side sleepers? Let’s find out.
