A Perfect Night’s Rest – Or A Perfect Night-Mare?
It’s been a long day at work.
You’d just braved another tiring 9 hours, crawled through the long and annoying traffic jams, and finally, finally, found yourself stumbling into your home with fatigue in your bones and sleep in your mind. You shrug off your coat, dump your briefcase by the doorstep, and finally fall into your mattress for a comforting night’s sleep…
…only to awaken the next morning to a whole other problem.
Shooting pain up your spine. Deep aches in your back. And suddenly your perfect night’s rest has turned into a perfect nightmare!
The Problem With Mattresses
When it comes down to it, mattresses can be both the bane and boon of a healthy night’s sleep.
In fact, most chiropractors tend to agree that mattresses can cause problems such as back pain due to a myriad of reasons – they may be too firm, or too soft, or too cheap; or perhaps just long past their prime. And when you wake up with shooting pains in your back and dull throbs in your spine, that may be your body’s way of telling you it’s time to get a new one.
But the mattress-buying process isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. A lot of times, different types of mattresses are made to fulfill different needs – and getting a mattress that isn’t compatible with your problems can sometimes only make things worse! But the thing is: how do you know what mattress might be the best fit for you?
Thankfully, we at the Coolbears have compiled a neat and handy list completely streamlined to your mattress needs. So the next time you find yourself floundering in the world of mattress-buying, know that we (and your future mattress – hehe, bed jokes!) have got your back!
Below are 10 mattress brands in Malaysia perfect for specific needs!
For Those With Back Pain
Back pain is perhaps the most common problem to emerge from sleeping on a subpar mattress. Sure, no one likes waking up with aches and pains in their back – but real troubles can arise when these pains begin to seep into your waking life and start to affect your day-to-day function.
So then, what are the brands and the mattresses that can alleviate these pains?

Equipped with 24 hour Anti-static protection, however, Getha’s ASP Mattress can help disperse unwanted positive ions and provide you with a comfortable, static-free sleep. This, combined with the natural hypoallergenic and toxic free properties of it’s coconut fibre composition, will provide you an overall relaxed experience that will calm your nerves and ease you to rest – without triggering a (static or allergic) reaction once!

For Those Sleeping With A Partner
Sleeping with your partner can be one of the best feelings in the world. The cuddles, the intimacy, the love and…well, the movement.
Okay, listen; as much as some of us might love our partners, there’s no denying that sleeping together on the same bed still poses it’s own share of problems. And if your partner’s a particularly mobile sleeper, you tend to feel every jounce and shudder and creak of the bed – which isn’t helpful when you want to get a good night’s rest.
So: what are the solutions?

Not all people sleep the same way. Some sleep on their backs, some sleep on their stomachs – while others prefer to sleep on their sides.
While this may come as a surprise to some people, people who tend to sleep in specific positions need certain mattresses to healthily accommodate their sleeping style. Side-sleepers, for example, have more of their body’s pressure points (e.g. shoulders, hips) digging into the mattress, and therefore usually require softer or medium firm mattresses for optimal give and spine-positioning.
And so goes the question – what are the best mattresses for side-sleepers out there?

This lies mostly in it’s composition – the Sonno Original is made up of three layers of natural latex, memory foam, and support foam, giving it a firm and all-around cosy texture that’s ideal for all kinds of sleepers out there!
The firmness of the three layer mattress offers a perfect supportive experience for back-sleepers, while also being topped with a softer, plush, and comfortable medium-firm pillow top that will perfectly conform to the pressure points of side-sleepers. Furthermore, the hypoallergenic properties of the latex, as well as the weight distribution function of the support foam, make the Sonno Original the perfect all-rounder mattress; and therefore a must-buy in the world of bedding!

The back-sleepers are the side-sleepers’ opposites. Unlike side-sleepers, back-sleepers usually sleep flat on their back; and therefore require slightly firmer mattresses to ensure they don’t overly sink into the mattress and start slouching in sleep.
However, an overly firm mattress may also prevent the back from going into a healthy natural curve – so a middle-ground is generally required for the best back-sleeper experience.
Let’s look at the solutions!

It is important to know how you feel when you sleep at night. If you have had your mattress for over a decade and can feel the springs when you sleep, it’s recommended that you change it then. Whenever you feel discomfort and unease once you wake up from your slumber, you should consider changing it. Most sleep specialists recommend people to change their mattresses within 5 to 7 years.
It depends on the type! Most inner-spring mattresses last for 5 to 8 years depending on their durability. Meanwhile, memory foam mattresses can last you up to 10 years! Make sure to consider your comfort and other factors when you purchase a mattress as your sleep is very important.
That depends on your needs. Sometimes, mattresses that are too firm can cause back pain and aches and can also affect your lower arch area. Therefore, you are recommended to check if you prefer softer mattresses such mattresses that are made of latex, memory foam, gel-infused foam, or polyfoam.
Memory foam mattresses have a plethora of advantages for people who use them. Usually, one memory foam mattress is built soft and very energy absorbing. In response to heat and pressure, memory foam conforms to the body, and evenly distributes body weight. Once the pressure is released, it resumes its former shape. These characteristics make memory foam mattresses incredibly pleasant to the people who lay on those mattresses.
The purpose of orthopedic mattresses is to support the spine’s alignment requirements. They achieve this by utilising a variety of materials, such as latex or memory foam, which conform to the body and offer support. The way orthopedic mattresses function is by supporting the spine and joints. This support aids in maintaining proper spinal alignment, which lessens pain and enhances sleep.
There are some aspects that you should really consider before buying a mattress. Firstly, you should consider your budget. After that, you should identify the way you sleep (sleeping position).

We want our spine to be in a neutral position as we sleep, which puts the vertebrae in alignment and relieves unnecessary pressure on the discs. However, many mattresses don’t offer enough support for the spine, which leads to misplaced vertebrae. Pain, stiffness, and other issues may result from this.
