The Vispring Elite Mattress

January 5, 2016

A Vispring mattress in the bedding industry is the equivalent of a Rolls-Royce in the auto industry. Vispring mattresses are some of the finest products in the mattress world and owning one is not only a status symbol, but a way to achieve the highest quality sleep possible night after night for the rest of your life. Every Vispring mattress is handmade from top to bottom using only the highest quality natural materials like Shetland wool, British fleece, Chinese silk, and Peruvian vicuna. All Vispring mattresses use hand-nested coils in a honeycomb pattern made from virgin Vanadium steel for the most durable and resilient support system possible. These springs will be made from a gauge to accommodate your specific body type to provide you with the perfect levels of contouring and support, fitting you perfectly like a tailored piece of fine clothing.

The Vispring Elite is the entry-level model from Vispring, the equivalent of a high-end car without the optional package features. The Vispring Elite will still probably be the most comfortable mattress you’ve ever slept on, and with its lifetime warranty it is a better value than most of the mass-produced options out there. The comfort layers consist of Platinum Certified British fleece, wool, and cotton. These all-natural comfort materials are not only soft and sumptuous, but they also wick away moisture and breathe well for a comfortable sleep environment. The specifications for these comfort layers are a 4.5 oz/sqft (1350 g/sqm) of British fleece, wool, and cotton and two layers of 3.0 oz/sqft (900 g/sqm) blended Britsh fleece, wool, and cotton. These layers create comfortable padding on top of the coil system to keep every inch of your body padded and supported effectively.

By investing in a Vispring now, you can experience luxury-level sleep every night for the rest of your life rather than buying a lower-quality mattress every ten years or so. This makes the value of a Vispring comparable to other models when looking at price vs. durability, without even taking into consideration the immeasurable increase in comfort and sleep quality you can expect from a handmade Vispring.

Simple Series #1: Our Comfort Scale®

December 8, 2015

Comfort Scale

If you’re shopping for a mattress on our website, you will inevitably come across our unique and revolutionary Comfort Scale®. Just because something is unique and revolutionary, doesn’t mean it has to be complicated! The concept is actually very simple: our Comfort Scale® is basically a 1-10 rating to give you a good idea of how soft or firm the mattress is. This number is not to be taken as a measure of quality, but simply as where the mattress falls in the range of firmness and softness. A rating of 1 is the firmest possible, while a rating of 10 is the softest possible. A rating of 5 is right in the middle, and more people prefer a rating of 5 than a rating of 1 or 10. But every sleeper is different, and finding your perfect Comfort Scale® rating is key to finding your perfect mattress.

You can find more information here, which gives a more in-depth look at how our Comfort Scale® works and what scores the different sleeping types usually prefer. Keep an eye out for more entries in my new “Simple Series” that will help get you acquainted with the our site and show you how easy it is to get a great deal on your next mattress.

If you’re in the market for a sleep experience beyond your typical mattress, we have exactly what you’re looking for. We are extremely pleased to announce that we now carry Aireloom mattresses — some of the best mattresses available today.

Founded in 1940, Aireloom has been handcrafting mattresses according only to their own standards. While most mattress brands make models that are almost directly comparable, Aireloom’s mattresses are made more slowly, more carefully, and with better materials. If a mattress can truly embody the meaning of luxury, an Aireloom mattress certainly does it.

Aireloom defines itself by these three tenets: its California Design, its Patented Aireloom Lift, and its Handmade construction.

  • California Design: Inspired by the landscape of the Golden State, Aireloom’s mattress artisans strive to build each mattress with care and precision. They take the distinctive beauty of the California terrain and channel it into their passion for crafting uniquely luxurious mattresses each and every day.
  • Patented Aireloom Lift: Part of the luxury of an Aireloom mattress is its one-of-a-kind, patented design. They have eliminated the barrier between the comfort layers and the coils, which allows you to experience full enjoyment of every material in the mattress. No other company in the world makes their mattresses in the same manner.
  • Handmade: In keeping with their superior standards, each one of Aireloom’s mattresses is entirely handcrafted by a mattress artisan. With materials such as New Zealand Joma wool and pure staple cotton, they create a mattress designed to give you the utmost in comfort and support. They pay meticulous attention to every detail of construction so that you get the best mattress possible.

Visit US-Mattress.com to see our selection of Aireloom mattresses. Luxury like this doesn’t come cheap, but good sleep is priceless. We offer the best prices on the best mattresses in the industry.

Your Pet’s Sleep and You

August 6, 2015

Your Pet's Sleep and You

While most people will stress the quality of your sleep, it’s important to remember that if you let your pet sleep with you, their sleep is also important. Anyone who has spent a night with a cat or dog in their bed knows that when Fido and Fluffy have a rough night, generally you do too.

Typically, a dog needs about 12 to 14 hours of sleep per day, depending on the size of the breed, and cats require anywhere from 15 to 20 hours of shuteye. Just like humans, your pet will need more sleep if they’re babies or seniors. But unlike humans, both dogs and cats can sleep just about anywhere and anytime.

An average dog will spend about half its day sleeping, but not all in one long chuck like humans. Because they nap around all day at various intervals, they spend less time getting REM sleep, which is the most restorative sleep. These smaller REM cycles are the reason that they spend so much of the day asleep. Cats have a similar sleep pattern. Just like dogs, they prefer a series of naps throughout the day, which, again, causes shorter REM sleep and therefore, a need for more sleep.

While your dogs will probably sleep better at night — which is good for those of you who share your beds with them — a variety of factors can affect the quality of their sleep or yours. The fact that they don’t sleep for long periods of time like humans do can influence your sleep, especially if you have a larger dog. Regardless, any waking dog who moves around on your bed is going to potentially wake you up. If you have an older dog that can’t get up on your bed, any whining (for a variety of reasons) will probably affect your sleep as well.

As far as cats, it’s common knowledge that they’re nocturnal creatures. This is an obvious way that they’ll disrupt your sleep. However, many domestic cats will adjust their sleep schedule so that it resembles yours, which makes it easier for cat owners to get necessary shuteye.

So how do you make sure that your pet will sleep while you sleep? Even though they won’t sleep as long as you will, if you get them on a schedule, they’ll generally work their sleep schedule around yours. If you’re worried that they’ll want to run around while you’re slumbering, set aside some time during the day to play with them so that they’re tired out when it’s bedtime. When your dog or cat has had some exercise, their sleep with you will improve.

What Is Percale?

May 14, 2015

Malouf Queen 400 Thread Count Italian Sheet Set
The more you look into buying new linens and textiles for your home, the more variation you’ll discover in the industry. One of the more complex aspects is the number of fabric weaves that exist.

The type of weave determines much about the fabric, including things like sheen, weight, and use. Percale is a very popular weave that has a very common use.

Percale is a very soft, light fabric that is often used in making bed sheets. The weave is very plain, yet very tight, and it has a high thread count — usually a minimum of 200. It’s often made of long-staple cotton, which is combed to remove the short, imperfect fibers. This way you get stronger threads that have a smaller chance of pilling.

All of these factors make percale a very good choice for something as essential and basic as sheets. If you’re anticipating summer heat, you’ll love the cool breathability of percale bedding. Brands such as Peacock Alley and Matouk are very well-known for the superior quality of their percale. Check out US-Mattress today to find fresh, comfortable summer linens!
