The bed should be the right size so you have adequate freedom of movement. Here are some tips for choosing the best size mattress for you:
- Measure yourself and your sleeping partner.
- The bed should be 10cm longer than the tallest person who will be sleeping in it.
- If both partners sleep on their sides, there’s a good chance they pull their legs up and get into the foetal position. If this is the case, you may be able to get away with less than 10cm.
