a unique spring system contained within both the Silentnight
mattress and the divan base, the Miracoil Spring System
guarantees total support. As the Miracoils run from
head to toe, body weight and movement is distributed
up and down the springs rather than across the bed
into your partner's sleeping area. This creates a
personal sleeping space with no roll together.
Unlike ordinary beds, the springs in the Miracoil
mattress run right to the very edge of the bed, ensuring
no roll off, so you can stretch out
in comfort. Additional Miracoils are concentrated
in the centre third of the bed to create a posture
zone which provides even greater support
where your body needs it most.
All Silentnight Miracoil mattresses
contain twice as many springs as an ordinary mattress,
so the secret of a great night's sleep isn't a secret
at all - it's a Miracoil.
MEDIUM OR SOFT?
At Taylors, we have an enormous range
of mattresses to choose from but how do you know which
is the right one for you?
The way a mattress is made, sewn together
and filled will affect its feel. Both fillings and
springs can make a bed harder or softer.
As a general rule, the better the bed,
the better quality the fillings. Your bed should help
to hold your spine in correct alignment. That also
means reatining a correct lordosis (the hollow in
your lower back) when you lie face upwards.
If a bed is too soft, you could sink
in too far. Whereas a bed that's too firm, may leave
your spine unsupported and prove extremely uncomfortable
on shoulders, elbows and bottom.
THE PALM TEST
The best way to test a new mattress
for support is to lie on your back and slip your hand
- palm down - in between the mattress and the hollow
of your back. If the mattress is too hard, you'll
discover an obvious gap. If the mattress is too soft,
this simple test may prove too difficult to do.
