Mattress in Singapore: 10 Best Ones for a Great Sleep

best mattresses in singapore

As much as we love sleeping (and our mattress), there’s a lot of things that keep us from getting enough sleep in Singapore. For working adults in Singapore, working late to meet a deadline is considered a norm. Likewise, it’s not unusual for students to stay up late to study and do their homework. So it’s not surprising that Singapore is one of the most sleep-deprived countries in the world.

While it can be hard to get an 8-hour sleep on weekdays, you can still get a good rest with the right mattress in Singapore.

But what mattress should you get in Singapore? With so many brands out there, each promising a pleasurable experience and a good night’s sleep, how do you differentiate the good brands from the bad ones?

What to consider when buying a mattress in Singapore?

In general, you should take into account the firmness, material, and price of the mattress.

Firmness

When picking a mattress, it’s not just the softness of the mattress that matters. You have to take long-term factors into account, such as your body weight and preference, as well as how good your back is.

The firmness of the mattress goes from 1 to 10 on the firmness scale, with 1 being the softest and 10 being rock solid. The chart rating system is as follows:

Soft

Soft mattresses are rather difficult to find. They offer very little support for your body, meaning that if you were to lie on one, you might find that your body just sinks right into it. The good thing about soft mattresses is that they are more comfortable for people who tend to sleep on their sides, since you don’t put as much pressure on your shoulders or hips.

Medium-soft

These mattresses provide slightly more support than their softer counterparts, but aren’t quite as fun to ease yourself into. Medium-soft mattresses will still contour to snugly fit the shape of your body, but you won’t find yourself sinking as much compared to a softer mattress.

Medium-firm

Most universal-comfort mattresses fall under this category. Medium-firm mattresses work well for almost all types of sleeping positions and body types, including those who frequently switch positions throughout the night. They also tend to last longer, since they’re made of denser and harder materials. 

Firm 

Firm mattresses provide the most back support out of all the available mattress options, and you’ll find that your body can rest on top of it without sinking down. Some people enjoy this feeling, while others may find it uncomfortable. Side sleepers should avoid sleeping on firm mattresses, as it may hurt their shoulders and hips.

Material

There are 2 main types of mattresses in Singapore: innerspring and memory foam.

Innerspring

Innerspring mattresses are made up of different layers which are separated by steel coils. The arrangement of these coils, coupled with the material of the outer layer, will influence how the mattress feels. 

Generally, if an innerspring mattress has more coils, it’s more comfortable. However, since the coils are all linked, it doesn’t absorb movements well. If you’re sharing the bed with someone who moves a lot while sleeping, you’ll feel the movement as well.

The main materials that are used to make innerspring mattresses are either polyurethane foam, or cotton.

Memory foam

Memory foam is made from viscoelastic, which is highly energy absorbent and soft. It adapts to your body weight, and moulds itself to the shape of your body. When you get off the mattress, it returns to its original form. 

These properties of memory foam make it very comfortable to sleep on. When your partner changes their position in bed, you won’t feel the motion as much with the memory foam.

After its debut at NASA, as part of the airplane seat, memory foam was used from industry to industry. Some of its applications include padding the insides of helmets and shoes. They’re even used in medical mattresses to prevent pressure ulcers.

The bad thing about memory foam is that they absorb a ton of heat, meaning that it can get pretty hot under your covers. 

Price

This depends on the brand and the material used. Prices of mattresses in Singapore vary, ranging from the really affordable ones from Sea Horse, to the really pricey ones from premium brands like Simmon and Tempur.

Additionally, each type of mattress in Singapore comes in these 4 sizes.

SizeDimensions in cmDimensions in inches
