Most people have one of the following three sleep styles:

A 2017 study notes that side sleeping is the most common sleeping position and stomach sleeping is the least common. Additionally, people who report poorer sleep tend to sleep on their backs.

Certain mattress types may better accommodate certain sleep styles, allowing people to achieve optimal sleep hygiene. Generally, people who sleep on their sides may find softer mattresses more comfortable, while those who sleep on their backs and stomachs may find medium-firm or firm mattresses more suitable.

People may also wish to consider the following factors before deciding which Helix mattress to purchase:

  • Ease of movement: Describes how easy it is for a person to move across the mattress. Generally, the softer the mattress, the more difficult it will be to move on it.
  • Motion isolation: Refers to whether an individual is likely to feel their sleeping partner’s movements during use. Generally, the softer the mattress, the greater the motion isolation and the less a person can feel their partner’s movements.
  • Pressure relief: Hybrid and memory foam mattresses often feature one or more layers that cradle the body and accomodate pressure points. Helix’s adult mattresses feature 3 layers of pressure relief foam.
  • Breathability: Some mattresses may have breathable covers, cooling gel, or channels to promote airflow and a cooler sleep. Helix mattresses feature a breathable cover to promote airflow. Buyers also have the option to upgrade to a premium GlacioTex cooling cover that reportedly pulls heat away from the body.

Do Helix mattresses come in a box?

All of Helix’s mattresses come rolled in a box, making them easier to transport than traditional unboxed mattresses.

When a person receives their mattress, they should unbox it and lay it flat on the floor or the bed frame. The mattress should then begin to expand to its intended shape.

Some mattresses may take longer to expand fully than others. People should follow the manufacturer’s instructions on when it is suitable to sleep on the mattress.

Do Helix mattresses have an off-gassing period?

Helix states that its mattresses do not have an off-gassing period. The company says it uses high-quality materials and CertiPUR-US foam that should emit little to no smell.

However, Helix states that any noticeable odors should dissipate within 24 hours.
