Whats the advantages of the modern mattress and why are they so deep these days? Deep mattress

Here, we hope to give you a few answers and also help you find the right deep fitted sheets to accommodate whatever mattress you are thinking of buying. So, what has happened to mattresses? The world of beds and mattresses has come a long way in the last 20 years. With advances in technology and in scientific research about sleep we now know how important it is to have a full and comfortable nights sleep. If you have been shopping for a mattress recently, you may have noticed a much wider range of sizes and depths than you have seen previously. Whether you are shopping for a new and more comfortable mattress or have already found your ideal bed and need deep fitted sheets, we’d like to offer some tips on mattress depths and comfort as well as all the ways you can complement your larger bed with lavish bed linens.


Mattress Depth

No longer is there a one size fits all standard mattress. Today’s mattresses come in different shapes, sizes, materials, and depths. Each offering their own unique level of comfort, support, and style. Mattress depths range form three inches to 14 inches or more and at each level are varying degrees of support and comfort. Depth makes an enormous difference on how your mattress feels when you lie down. However it can't be viewed as the only criteria you look for when choosing your mattress. A thicker mattress will not be comfortable if the fillings used are of poor quality.


The Fillings of a Deeper Mattress

All mattresses, regardless of their depth, come in varieties from budget to luxury, with the highest quality mattresses having the most unique features and fillings. Luxury mattresses offer higher levels of craftmanship in construction and premium quality fillings. Look for fillings such as mohair, silk or cashmere as these are well known in the industry to give extra layers of comfort. Hi tail hair or horse tail hair is rarer but also an extremely luxurious filling. These hairs are teased from horses at grooming and have unique qualities including retaining their shape over time and a unique springiness in character. These hairs make for excellent mattresses.


Memory foam is another modern addition to the bed. Some mattresses have a top layer of memory foam attached that can add about 5-10cm thickness to your mattress. Although it is quite an addition in depth, memory foam has become extremely popular as its cushioning effect makes for a very comfortable nights sleep. Of course any of these additions may sound great but the only true way to find out if you like them is to try them out, any bed store will be happy for you to pop along and try out their beds, it is definitely something we would recommend. Doing a little bit of leg work and research will ensure you get the right bed.

Very good idea to keep customers informed on bedding topics. However incorrect grammar can detract from what is otherwise an interesting article. A computer spell check will not distinguish between two words that sound the same. I refer to your use of the word there in the blog. The word there refers to places eg 'over there'. The word for thing that belong is their eg their beds their shape. I know it's only a minor point but it does make the blog sound less professional. It's always good to get someone else to read as it is sometimes difficult to spot ones own mistakes. I have the highest regard for your bedding and always purchase from you

This is the second time I have bought a fitted bottom sheet for our bed. On both occasions I received the sheet within 3 weeks, accompanied by a card personally signed by the staff member who had lovingly made it! Thank you so much, Shelagh!

ght our bed base when living in the States 20 years ago, the retailers don't stock, or even know where to source sheets etc for out of the ordinary sizes.

I wasn't too sure how to measure the gap for the split corner valance, but the lady on the 'phone was so helpful and friendly. I would definitely order from the Victoria Linen Company again.
