Treat with Actipro, a revolutionary pro-biotic technology, the hypoallergenic mattress is well-equipped to combat allergens and unwelcome dust mites. This makes the offerings of Dunlipillo the best mattresses for asthma sufferers.
Due to the natural fillings and treatment of the mattresses, regular washing will cause the Actipro to fade over time. As such, a mattress protector is recommended to add a protective layer and lengthen the lifespan of the mattress. Note, however, that the protector must be a breathable one to ensure proper air circulation both in and around the latex mattress. We also stock a wider range of bedding to finish off your bed and mattress set in style.
Will a Dunlopillo mattress work with my current bed base?
A truly versatile mattress, our Dunlopillo range can be used with any bed base that is breathable. A natural mattress made in the UK from 100% latex, these handcrafted mattresses require consistent airflow. Our divan bed bases which feature slatted edges are the perfect accompaniment to a Dunlopillo mattress. Whether you’re looking to change your mattress or upgrade your bed frame, a Dunlopillo mattress is a great way to breathe new life into your sleeping environment.
If a non-breathable bed base is used, it can lead to condensation forming on the bottom of the mattress, causing the latex materials to break down. Whichever bed frame you use, the slats must be no more than 6cm apart. This is the best way to prevent mattresses from sagging, allowing it to provide optimum support.
Is a soft, medium or firm mattress best for back pain?
How much support does your mattress provide to help with back pain? While there are external factors such as weight and age to consider, mattress firmness levels which provide greater support are usually the best way to go.
Our Dunlopillo mattress range features mattresses with medium firmness as well as firm mattresses, providing adequate support to the more vulnerable joints which are susceptible to pressure and pain, potentially ruining a good night’s sleep. The best mattress for back pain does come down to personal preference, however, and there is no black and white answer.
Soft mattresses are better for a lighter or smaller individual. A heavier person will sink too deeply into a mattress which is too soft, placing added stress on your pressure points. As a general rule of thumb, aim for a mattress which is not too soft and not too firm. It’s recommended to seek guidance from a medical practitioner for further information on which mattress is best for back pain.
