There’s no “one size fits all” when it comes to mattresses. Just like a good pair of jeans, the right mattress will conform to your shape and leave you feeling terrific. So details like how hot you sleep, how much you weigh, and your individual body type play a big part in what kind of mattress is best for you.
Here are some things to keep in mind so that your next mattress fits you just right.
Are you a woman or a man?
This may seem like a strange question to start with, but it’s critical. Men and women have different body shapes, which can come into play when mattress shopping. Women often have more of a dip in the small of their back, so if you’re a woman and you’re a back sleeper, you should make sure the mattress has latex or foam on top. That way it can mold to your body and support you while you sleep.Our Most Popular Mattress With Women

How much do you weigh?
If you weigh more than average, take that into consideration when choosing a mattress. A hybrid mattress with a thicker-gauge spring will provide the firmer support that you need. Hybrid mattresses are also more breathable than foam mattresses, so they can help you stay cooler throughout the night. Other things to think about if you’re heavy are mattress thickness—too thin and it won’t be comfortable or durable—and edge support, so you can sit or lie close to the edge without feeling like it’s going to collapse. (Lying next to the edge and testing the strength of the side to side encasement is the test to find the best mattress for heavy people.)When it comes to mattress materials, heavier people may want to think twice about memory foam. Thicker memory foam mattresses conform to the sleeper’s body, it can make a heavy person feel a little stuck. It’s heat activated, so it molds to your body and can trap you there. If you prefer the feeling of foam, look for a higher-density foam with cooling features and a medium thickness. At the other end of the spectrum, people who are on the lighter side do better with a softer, more pillow-like comfort layer that can help make up for a lack of natural padding. Our Most Popular Mattress For Heavy People: Do you sleep hot or cold? Many of us in the Caribbean sleep hot because it is hot. Rather than turning down the thermostat and increasing your power bill, consider a cooling mattress. Many mattresses now contain graphite fibres woven in the fabric to draw away your body heat and most cooling mattresses contain a cooling gel foam to actively lower your sleep temperature.

Do you and your partner have totally different body types or sleeping postures? People who share a bed don’t just have to think about their own needs, they also have to take their partner’s comfort into consideration. If you sleep with someone who is a lot heavier or lighter than you, you’re going to find different levels of support comfortable. As with so many things in coupledom, compromise is considered key, but a great night of sleep cannot be compromised. Solutions include a mattress designed for 5 Star Hotels or a Split King bed when the rare person finds a 5 Star Hotel Mattress uncomfortable. A Split King which consists of two twin XL mattresses side by side in a frame. That way each person can have the level of firmness he or she desires.

Wife and I are renting on-island and wanted... to upgrade our pillows. The staff were helpful and friendly - even though we must've tried every pillow in that store. Would definitely recommend!read more
Excellent customer service, very happy with... mattress we ended up buying. Sales staff were knowledgeable about product and explained the differences very clearly between each product. Also, almost all the mattresses we looked at were in stock ON ISLAND, I think this is important to mention as many retail experiences here you can be left waiting weeks for your purchase. The new mattress (Tommy Bahama) and just as importantly new memory foam pillows with a shoulder cut out for side sleeping have made a huge difference (I didn't know this side sleeping pillow existed...it's been life changing). Delivery was prompt and Vickie followed up with us to see if we were satisfied with the purchase so far. Would recommend going here first if looking to purchase a mattress, pillows or other bedding in Grand Cayman!read more
Buying a mattress on Grand Cayman is easier... than you think! Fantastic service from Mark and Vickie. Great selection of (ON ISLAND) mattresses, pillows and accessories. We are new home owners who left bed shopping late. Mark helped direct us to the mattress that would be best for us without rushing us. We picked the Tommy Bahama mattress and wonderful pillows that they were able to deliver "same day" (although we had it delivered a few days later). No waiting 3-4 weeks for their products. They were professional and prompt on delivery (which was free of course) while offering to remove the existing mattress if required. Vickie called a week later to inquire about our satisfaction of mattress and our experience, which we appreciated. All their mattresses have warranties they honor from Island. After 2 weeks now we can say we are sleeping better than we have in years! We are recommending The Mattress Experts to all our friends or to anyone requiring a new mattress. With a new home we are going to be return customers. Thank you Mattress Experts for all your help~!read more
