The standard Malaysian-size mattresses are:
Single: 191 x 91 cm
Super Single: 191 x 107 cm
Queen: 191 x 152 cm
King: 191 x 183 cm
Even though most mattresses come with 10-year warranty, the performances of the mattresses in terms of comfort and support are diminishing over years of usage. Thus, you may consider shopping for a new mattress every 8 to 10 years or earlier depending on the condition of your mattress.
Not exactly true. When people say they want a firm mattress, they usually mean to buy a more supportive mattress. Modern mattresses are made to provide different levels of comfort and support depending on construction. A firmer mattress is generally less comfortable compared to a mattress which is less firm.
Space is a critical factor for a good night’s sleep. In general, a bigger mattress provides better quality sleep. Invest in a bigger mattress if the space of your room allows for it.
There is no definite answer to this question. What is best for me may not be best for you. Mattresses are built differently with different levels of comfort and support. Choose a reliable retailer and test out the mattress yourself. Don’t forget to bring your partner along if 2 persons are sharing the same bed.
A person sleeps on a mattress 8 hours a day on average. Naturally, direct contact of the body with the top surface of the mattress will have some impact on foam layers inside the cover. This is called body impression, a phenomenon that is common with premium bedding.
It is normal for body impressions to appear at areas of the mattress which support heavier parts of a person’s body. For instance, you will discover that dipping appears at areas which support your hips and shoulders first. Warranties of most manufacturers do not cover body impression if it is less than 5cm as this is not considered a manufacturing defect.
There are many different components that go into a mattress. The common materials used are coil-springs with various layers of foam above them. A growing number of mattresses are now made with latex or visco-elastic memory foam.
