Mattresses & Mattress Bases also known as mattress foundations — are supports that you place directly underneath your mattress. Mattresses & Mattress Bases are what hold your mattress up, whether you have a bare-bones metal bed frame or a fancy bedstead with a wooden headboard, footboard, and slats.
A good mattress will gently support your whole body and keep your spine in a neutral position. No matter if you’re lying on your back, front, or side. Pay attention to your pressure points when choosing a new bed (these will be the heaviest parts of your body).
In fact, a mattress that doesn’t provide adequate spine support will not only compromise the quality of your sleep. It can also become the reason why you’ll lose the natural curve of your spine and experience other health conditions, such as ligament or muscle strain, in the long run.
