How to Choose the Right Mattress for a Restful Holiday Season

Getting ready for the holidays means more than just decorating the halls and preparing festive feasts – it's also about gearing up for serious relaxation. And guess what plays an important role in that? Yep, the comfy bed you crash into after a day of merry madness, your mattress! So, let's discuss how to pick the perfect mattress for a holiday season that's cosy and stress-free.

Understanding Your Sleep Needs

Understanding Your Sleep Needs

Keep in mind that there is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to mattresses. Hence, it is important to understand your personal preferences and sleep needs to determine the perfect mattress to help you achieve the blissful and rejuvenating rest you deserve this holiday season.

Here are the four things you need to consider before you choose the perfect mattress for you:

1. Sleep Positions

Are you a back, side, stomach, or combination sleeper? Whichever sleeping position you prefer, you must understand that each requires comfort and spinal alignment.

2. Temperature Preferences 

Do you like to feel cool and refreshed as you drift into dreamland, or do you prefer the cosy warmth of a snug bed?

3. Motion Isolation

If you share your bed with a partner or a furry friend, the ability of a mattress to absorb motions becomes crucial, so you also have to consider the motion isolation of the mattress.

4. Health Considerations

Consider your specific health considerations, such as back and neck pain or allergies.

Types of Mattresses

Types of Mattresses

After you assess your unique sleep preferences, let us now explore the different types of mattresses that would fit your personal comfort:

Innerspring Mattresses

Composed of steel coils or springs with layers of padding on top. It is also known for its bouncy feel and good airflow.

Pros: Excellent support for various sleep positions. It also has good breathability, making it cooler for those who sleep hot.

Cons: Potential for motion transfer if sharing the bed and limited in terms of conforming to body shape compared to other types.

Memory Foam Mattresses

It is made from viscoelastic and polyurethane foam that contours the body's shape. It also offers excellent pressure relief and motion isolation.

Pros: Superior support, especially for those with joint and back pain and minimal motion transfer, making it great if you share a bed.

Cons: Can retain heat, leading to a warmer sleeping experience, and you may feel the sinking uncomfortable.

Latex Mattresses

Constructed from natural or synthetic latex and known for durability, responsiveness, and a bouncy feel.

Pros: It is naturally resistant to dust mites and allergens and is exceptionally durable, as it often outlasts other mattress types.

Cons: Limited contouring compared to memory foam and more expensive than other mattress options.

Hybrid Mattresses

Combines innerspring coils with memory foam or latex layers that aim to provide both coil and foam support benefits.

Pros: Balanced support, comfort, and good motion isolation with the added benefit of breathability.

Cons: Expensive, and the overall feel can vary widely based on the specific hybrid construction.

Choosing the Right Mattress Size

Choosing the Right Mattress Sizes

Think of a mattress like your shoe. If it doesn't perfectly fit your foot, it will not give you the perfect comfort you need and might cause pain to your toes. Same with the mattresses. The right mattress size not only influences your comfort but also complements your bedroom's overall aesthetics and functionality, especially if you plan to decorate your bedroom for the coming Christmas season.

Here are the mattress sizes available in Singapore:

91cm x 190cm

42” x 75”

Teenagers, children, and single sleepers.


152cm x 190cm

60” x 75”

Couples or single sleepers who enjoy extra room.


182cm x 198cm

72” x 75”

Family who shares a bed, and great for larger bedrooms with more available space.

Firmness Level

Firmness Level

Another important factor to consider when choosing the right perfect mattress is the firmness level. Imagine all day of stress from holiday decorations, preparations, and gatherings, and then you lay your back on a mattress that does not give your back the proper level of firmness and softness. Instead of having a cloud-like comfort that hugs you at night, you'll find yourself tossing and turning, trying to find a comfortable spot for your body.

So, here’s how to find the perfect balance for your sleep style:

Soft: Ideal for side sleepers and those who enjoy a plush, sinking feeling and offer excellent pressure for shoulders and hips.

Medium-Soft: Strikes a balance between softness and support and is suitable for combination sleepers who switch positions at night.

Medium: The most common firmness level accommodates a wide range of sleep preferences because of its balanced support for back, side, and stomach sleepers.

Medium-Firm: Provides a slightly firmer feel, suitable for back sleepers and those who need additional support. It also maintains some contouring for comfort.

Firm: Offers a solid, supportive surface, making it suitable for back and stomach sleepers as it minimises sinkage and promotes spinal alignment.

Extra Firm: Provides minimal contouring, appealing to those who prefer a rigid surface, and suitable for stomach sleepers and individuals with back pain.


Choosing the right mattress for a cosy holiday season is like finding your perfect sleep companion. Remember that investing in a new mattress is not just a buy; it's like bringing home a ticket to dreamland. So, as you go on this comfy adventure, think about the good nights and happy mornings your chosen mattress will bring for the entire Christmas season.
