The Perfect Double Mattress for Your Sleeping Position
Our affordable collection is available in a full range of firmness levels to suit varied sleeping styles.
If you're a lighter individual or put added pressure on your hips and joints by sleeping on your side, choose a soft mattress. Our soft double mattresses are expertly designed to counteract the weight placed on your shoulders and spine, promoting correct spinal alignment for optimal comfort.
For stomach sleepers, or those who land on the opposite end of the heaviness spectrum, our firm double mattresses are the perfect choice. The added tension offers full support to the hips and the upper body in general, keeping your body in a uniform shape for restful sleep. If you typically wake yourself up by tossing and turning, a very firm double mattress is equally effective.
