Size does matter

The first decision to make is the size of your mattress. There are many options available but here are some handy tips to factor in when choosing the best size that suits you:

  • A mattress should be at least 10cm longer than the height of the tallest person using it.
  • The width of the mattress should allow you to be able to put both your hands under your head without your elbows touching the edge of the mattress or the person sleeping next to you.

The Perfect Mattress size



Size: 70cm x 140cm

Best suited for: Toddlers

A toddler sized mattress is the perfect size for kids aged between one and three and is a great starter for kids ready to move out of their cots. Care should be taken to ensure that the mattress fits perfectly in your kids' bed. Turning the mattress regularly will also reduce wear over time.
