With so many different manufacturers and types of mattresses on the market, it can be difficult to figure out which mattress is the best fit for you. At Shifman, we’ve got a few tips to help you narrow down the search!
Choose a mattress that neutrally supports your entire bodyAccording to experts, you should choose a mattress that neutrally supports your entire body; this neutral position refers to when your head, shoulders, buttocks, and heels are properly aligned, and your spine has a healthy curvature. Avoid mattresses that are too firm, as those push on your body’s pressure points and affect alignment. On the other hand, very soft mattresses don’t offer enough support for your body’s pressure points. These two scenarios will eventually result in back pain. If you wake up with some level of back pain that goes away soon after stretching, it’s a sign that you might not have the proper mattress or support system, and/or potentially chose the incorrect comfort level.
It’s very important to actually visit a mattress retailer and try out a mattress prior to purchasing. We don’t recommend buying a mattress set without laying on the beds in your natural sleeping position, and determining which firmness level is best for your body. Many experts recommend innerspring mattresses, the most common mattress type. Innerspring mattresses support your body using an inner-spring. At Shifman, we offer a wide range of handmade, innerspring mattresses. Innerspring mattresses are some of the most comfortable mattresses; the coils conform to the natural contours of your body, maximizing comfort and absorbing your body’s weight for the ultimate sleeping experience.
The Right Mattress Will Combat Back Pain
Our mattresses are two-sided, so they last even longer than the average innerspring mattress because they can be flipped over time, offering the same level of comfort and durability on both sides. In an industry where the majority of manufacturers have changed to one-sided mattresses to save on costs, at Shifman, we’ve refused to cut corners. We continue to be one of the only mattress manufacturers that has maintained a dedication to making two-sided mattresses.
Each one of our mattresses is handmade by over 50 craftspeople, using the most luxurious materials like Belgian damask and cashmere, as well as natural materials like the finest apparel-grade cotton, wool, and more.
