You are a true original. Chances are you've got a few quirks, some that you're willing to share with anyone who will listen (like your avocado toast addiction) and others that you'd prefer to keep under wraps (like your slightly embarrassing collection of Nicholas Cage memorabilia). At Muse, we don't judge—ever. Whether you're a serial blanket stealer or a snoring starfish when it comes to the bedroom, you deserve more than a generic, one-size-fits-all solution to sleep. At Muse, we cater to your size, sleep position and temperature preference to create the best bed for your body and every body.
On musesleep.com, we offer a soft, medium and a firm mattress so you can choose the best option for you. If you're thinking "but why?", we've got you covered. Read on if you really want to do your homework or take our Sleep Personality Quiz if you just want the answers.
Choosing a Mattress by Body Type
Here's the deal—maintaining proper spine alignment throughout the night is key if you want to wake up pain free in the morning. To make sure things line up just right when you lie down at night, you have to look for a bed that will adequately support your hips and shoulders (aka the heaviest parts of your body). A firmer mattress is best for large builds and body types, while a softer mattress will be most comfortable for small builds and body types.
Choosing a Mattress by Sleep Position
Memory foam mattresses conform to the shape of your body, so it's important that you select a sleep surface that will comfortably adjust as you switch positions throughout the night. If you sleep on your back or side, your body's natural curves need to be cradled appropriately so that your weight is evenly distributed across the mattress, eliminating pain from pressure points. If you sleep on your stomach, you need adequate support from your mattress so that your back doesn't curve in an unnatural and uncomfortable way.
Choosing a Mattress by Temperature Preference
Whether you occasionally wake up in a pool of sweat or have a habit of sticking your leg outside the blanket, temperature regulation is a must at bedtime. In addition to keeping your room at 65 degrees (the optimal temperature for sleep according to the National Sleep Foundation), you also want to sleep on a mattress that will keep you cool and comfortable throughout the night. Traditional memory foam mattresses tend to sleep hot, so if you are already prone to sleeping hot, consider a gel-infused memory foam mattress that features a cooling cover, like Muse.
