Luxury Mattresses For Heavy Sleepers From John Ryan by Design
Most mattresses on the market have a weight limit of 18 stone per sleeper. This can make it harder for heavy people to find a mattress that offers them both comfort and support.
Mattresses for heavier sleepers need to be built with a person of that size in mind.
Here we explain everything you need to know when it comes to finding a mattress for heavy people.
When it comes to buying a mattress, a person’s weight plays an important role in identifying the perfect one. A person who weighs 9 stone, for example, requires a completely different product from someone who weighs 19 stone.
It’s often easier to find mattresses for smaller people, which can be frustrating for those who are larger.
However, here at John Ryan, we have a selection of mattresses for heavy people who are looking for something supportive and comfortable.
Finding the right mattress for a heavy person
Most mattress retailers fail to accommodate for bigger sleepers. There’s usually a limit of 18 stone and while larger people can certainly use these traditional mattresses, they won’t be offered the level of support that is required.
In addition, many retailers only guarantee their mattresses for people of up to 18 stone, so if a fault was to arise, they may blame it on extra weight being placed on it.
Many people underestimate the importance of a good mattress and assume that comfort is the only thing that matters. However, sleeping on an unsupportive mattress can affect everything, from your quality of sleep to your posture.
If you weigh 18 stone or more, we can help you find the right mattress for you. We can take into account your height, weight and favoured sleeping position before pointing you in the direction of the mattress that’s most likely to give you the sleep quality you deserve.
Mattresses for two people of different weights
Are you looking for a mattress that perfectly provides for both a heavy person and a light person? Finding one that caters for both people can be a challenge, with most retailers adopting a one-mattress-fits-all approach.
Here at John Ryan, we offer a more tailored approach. After all, we’ve spent years experimenting with different mattress materials and thicknesses before creating products that are especially designed for people of all shapes and sizes. So why would we ruin that by forcing two very differently-sized people to share a mattress that is only suitable for one of them?
If you and your partner are very different weights, we can professionally combine two different mattresses into one. One side will be perfectly crafted for the heavier person and the other side will be especially designed for the lighter person. The dual mattress will look like an ordinary one and, thanks to a special topper, it will be assembled in such a way that you won’t have to worry about falling through the gap in the middle. You won’t even notice the divide.
The mattresses will need to be the same depth to avoid a ridge in the centre, but with so many mattresses to choose from, we’re confident that we can find the right combination for you.
