How to choose a mattress based on body weight

How to choose a mattress base on body weight

The mattress is an essential element in our life because it affects the quality of sleep and the overall comfort of the night’s rest. One of the most important factors to consider before choosing a mattress is your body weight. Whatever your build, the right mattress is the one that will provide you with the right support and comfort, ensuring a better sleep. In this article, we will discuss the process of choosing a mattress based on body weight, and you will find some useful tips for making a more informed choice! 

The right mattress for light body weights (less than 70 kg)

If you are a slim person, your ideal mattress should be comfortable and cozy. A soft, but always well-supported mattress relieves pressure on contact points and better adapts to the shape of the body. Memory foam mattresses, such as the Memory Trilogy or Memo artic, are certainly the most suitable if you weigh less than 70 kg. Don’t you want to give up springs? Prefer hybrid mattress models with pocket springs and layers of polyurethane foam and memory foam. Try the Sanremo Pillow Top or the sumptuous Brixia Premium with built-in topper for an extra layer of softness!

The best mattresses for average body weights (between 70 kg and 90 kg)

For average weight people, it is important to look for a mattress that provides the right balance of support and comfort. A medium firm mattress can be ideal, as it provides the support you need without being too hard or too soft. High-quality memory foam or hybrid mattresses with pocket springs inside may be an appropriate choice for those in this weight group. Mollyflex mattresses ideal for average weight include many models, including the Giotto Memory, the Venezia Coral in Firm and Soft versions, and the Memo Top

The ideal mattress for heavy body weights (over 90 kg)

People weighing more than 90 kg need a mattress that has extra support to support the body load during their sleep. An orthopaedic mattress can provide the right support and prevent mattress deformation over time. Stronger pocket sprung mattresses can be a good choice for people with a significant weight. Also, look for mattresses with thicker polyurethane and memory foam layers to provide adequate support without sacrificing comfort. Among the most suitable models for those with a massive build we recommend the Mantova Mollywell Class and Sanremo Classic spring mattresses, as well as the multi-layer Medical X-Static polyurethane foam model.

Also consider these things before buying your new mattress 

In addition to body weight, there are other considerations to take into account when choosing the mattress. For example: What is your position while sleeping? People who sleep mainly on one side may prefer a softer mattress to protect their shoulders and hips from pain and pressure. Conversely, those who sleep primarily on the back or belly may prefer a stiffer mattress to support the spine and maintain a proper alignment.

It is also important to consider your personal preferences. Some people may prefer a softer or stiffer mattress based on their sensitivity and sleep habits. Our advice is to try the different types of mattresses in our stores and get advice from the Mollyflex sleep consultants, who are always available to customers to explain the features of the various models and give important advice. 

In conclusion, choosing a mattress based on body weight is essential to ensure a quality sleep and adequate comfort during the night. Consider your body weight, sleep position, and personal preferences before making a decision. Remember that a proper mattress can make all the difference for a good night’s sleep and a good overall quality of life.
