My old mattress was like an old jumper that I had held onto for far too long. Historically, I would purchase any mattress with my only stipulation being that it had to be relatively firm.
A few months back I happen to sleep at my friend's house and noticed that as I hit the pillow, I immediately drifted into sleep and found it hard the next morning to leave the bed. In the morning she spoke of her 'new mattress' as if it was a well known friend and although not entirely convinced, it was enough to stoke my curiosity in wanting to explore t more this fascination with mattresses.
After much deliberation, I took a trip down to my local Dreams store, and tried out some of the beds. The choice was a little overwhelming, being a novice mattress purchaser. My final choice was the Maitland Pocket Sprung Mattress which I purchased along with the Nixson bedframe.
I AM A CONVERT!
My husband and I never appreciated the importance of a good mattress until that first week and I never knew that a good mattress has so many benefits such as creating feelings of calmness, peace and warmth. I still have not worked out how a mattress can make you more relaxed. It sounds cheesy but we both look forward to going to bed at night. The mattress is comfortable - firm, yet not hard and the bed, also purchased at Dreams (Nixson) is both attractive to look at and inviting.
