Best mattress in Singapore: Quality sleep from just $399

You already know how important sleep is. You already know we spend a third of our lives in bed. And that your mattress affects the quality of your sleep and the rest of your day. What you may need a little help with is choosing the best mattress to buy.

Premium mattresses cost around S$5,000 and are certainly good but not everyone needs one of those. A bargain basement discount mattress may be cheap but may end up costing you money and your health in the long run.

Here are just some of the benefits of using the best mattress for you:

  • Better sleep quality: A comfortable, supportive mattress reduces tossing and turning for deeper and more restorative sleep.

  • Pain relief: A good mattress provides proper support to alleviate aches and pains, especially in the back, neck, shoulders and hips.

  • Better posture: A supportive mattress can help maintain proper spinal alignment while you sleep, which can lead to better posture and reduced risk of musculoskeletal issues.

  • Reduced allergen exposure: High-quality mattresses often incorporate dust- and mite-resistant materials, which is especially beneficial for individuals with allergies or asthma.

  • Improved relationship: A good shared mattress leads to better support and more restful sleep for you both, which can potentially improve the quality of your relationship.

  • Longer lifespan: The best mattresses generally offers good support over a longer time than cheaper, low-quality alternatives. This will save you money in the long run.

How to choose the best mattress

Most people will use a mattress for 7 to 10 years, so it pays to choose a mattress wisely. The main factors to consider are your:

  • sleep position

  • body type

  • chronic pain or injuries

  • allergies

Understanding those will help you in the next step of choosing the specifics of the best mattress for you.

Firmness and sleep position

Mattresses are rated on firmness on a scale to 10, with 1 being the softest possible and 10, the firmest.

  • Soft (3 to 6) – Best for those who sleep on their side as it helps to keep the spine aligned when body shape tends to warp it.

  • Medium (6 to 7) – The industry standard for medium firmness is 6.5. These mattresses are best for back sleepers and those who adopt varied sleep positions.

  • Firm (7 to 10)Front sleepers will benefit most from the additional support and evenness of a firm mattress.

Mattress type

  • Innerspring: These mattresses use a framework of metal coils for support. They can provide good support and airflow but may not conform to your body as well as other types. Pocket mattresses place each spring in its own ‘pocket’ for better motion isolation.

  • Memory foam: Memory foam mattresses are designed to conform to your body’s shape, providing excellent pressure relief and motion isolation. People with specific pain issues will benefit most from using one. However, the ‘cocooning’ effect can trap heat.

  • Latex: Latex mattresses are durable and provide good support. They are also hypoallergenic and resistant to dust mites and mould.

  • Hybrid: Hybrid mattresses combine elements of different mattress types, such as innerspring and memory foam or latex. They aim to offer the benefits of both worlds.

Sleep trial

That 2 minutes of gazing at the ceiling inside the mattress store cannot give you an accurate representation of what it would feel like to have the mattress in your home. The best mattress companies offer sleep trials ranging from 1 to 6 months. Make use of this to see if it really is the best mattress for you.

Budget

A mattress can be a decade-long commitment so invest in one that will retain its value over that period. Generally, more expensive mattresses are better to sleep on but a moderately-priced one will be a good choice for most people. Focus on the sleep trial instead of being wow-ed by brand name and fancy marketing.
