Mattresses with high point elasticity give way at the point where the body exerts direct pressure on the mattress. The counterpart to this is the surface elasticity. For example, a cold fluff mattress with a low volume weight of 35 kg / m³ is considered more surface-elastic, whereas a high point elasticity is only guaranteed at a density of between 45 kg / m³ and 60 kg / m³. The material also determines the point elasticity.

Sleep climate: Personal preferences decide

On average, a person loses 500 milliliters of sweat during sleep – and of course, this sweat goes first and foremost into the mattress. From here it usually evaporates again, leaving the mattress pleasantly dry. Depending on the density of the room, the moisture evaporates faster or slower – this requires good air circulation. Particularly dense mattress cores with a high density can not let the moisture escape as well as permeable mattresses. Air vents and special holes and cuts improve the air circulation of high-density mattresses. However, the personal preference of the person is crucial: If you freeze fast in your sleep, you should opt for a less permeable mattress, while one is particularly dependent on a good sleeping environment and rapid evaporation of the resulting moisture as a sweaty sweaty person.

What should you pay particular attention to when comparing?

Decisive is the comparison of personal requirements and preferences. Accordingly, you should be able to answer the following questions:

  • How hard am I?
  • How tall am I?
  • In which position do I sleep most of the time?
  • Freeze or sweat fast in my sleep?
  • Do I have allergies to house dust (mites)?
  • Do I have a particularly pronounced pelvic or shoulder area?
  • How is my slatted frame?

These and other questions may decide to compare the best mattresses. Size and weight, for example, decide on the required degree of hardness, while the sleeping position is important to find the right mattress. Of course, the individual models also bring different strengths and weaknesses, which is why you should familiarize yourself with the individual tests for the mattresses.
