Does a Luxury Mattress Impact How You Sleep?

We have all experienced sleepless nights full of tossing and turning only to wake up completely exhausted. Did you know though that sleeping on the right luxury mattress could help alleviate these problems? A recent study showed that mattresses really do matter when it comes to feeling fully rested.

A four-year study conducted by Research Triangle International and Drs. Andy Krystal and Jack Edinger from Duke University, observed how different support levels of mattresses effected sleep, pain and daytime performance. Over 16,000 nights of sleep were evaluated for 128 participants, making this one of the largest studies ever completed on how mattresses impact sleep.

Previous Studies On Luxury Mattresses And Sleep

Only a few studies have observed the effects mattresses have on sleep. Previous surveys only looked at a small number of participants and mattresses. The conclusion of these small sample size studies was that “medium-firm” mattresses are the best for sleep. Two errors associated with this were: no recognizable definition for what a “medium-firm” mattress feels like and there were participants who slept well on other mattresses.

Another study concluded that mattresses had no impact on sleep at all. This study was considered a poor frame of reference because their small sample size only consisted of college students (who sleep just about anywhere!).

Using A Luxury Mattress Will Make A Difference

The study by Krystal and Edinger overcame these previous limitations by examining a large sample size of participants (128), a large assortment of different support level mattresses (seven) and more nights spent sleeping on each mattress (four weeks). After assessing over 16,000 nights of sleep, it was evident that even the smallest difference in mattress support (soft, medium, firm) correlated with changes in sleep.
