The Benefits of a 2-Sided Mattress

M & N MattressKingsdown, Mattresses


Growing up, you may remember being told to flip your mattress over if it was becoming too lumpy or saggy in a certain spot. You may also remember how great the mattress felt after sleeping on it once it had been flipped! Today however, most mattresses cannot be flipped, regardless of their size, due to the fact that they are only made to be slept on one side. When these mattresses start to sag after a few years due to what are known as ‘body impressions’, there is not much you can do about it.

At M&N Mattress, we understand that our customers want the very best when it comes to the overall comfort and durability of their mattress. That is why we are proud to be able to provide our customers with the best selection of high quality mattress products and brands in the Parksville and Nanaimo areas. Our knowledgeable staff is prepared to offer you suggestions on what mattresses will best suit your sleeping habits as well as your budget. With a selection that you won’t find anywhere else, we have the right mattress for you that will drastically reduce body impressions, and keep delivering on comfort and durability for many, many years.


With a standard single sided mattress, body impressions can be reduced, as long as you select a mattress that is made from the right materials. Firmer mattresses made with fewer comfort layers tend to last longer than a softer mattress, though you may find yourself sacrificing comfort for durability in the case of a firmer mattress. A mattress with a latex core is a good option of you want to avoid body impressions without sacrificing too much comfort. With more latex in the comfort layers, your body will enjoy more support. This is because latex is durable enough to maintain it’s original shape longer than any other material, while at the same time reducing pressure points on the body and regulating body temperature. All of these factors make latex a better option than traditional comfort layers, though there is an even better way to eliminate body impressions to consistently get a good night’s sleep.

The absolute best way to keep your mattress from sagging too quickly is to flip the mattress before body impressions become permanent. Despite this fact, double-sided mattresses are becoming hard to find, especially in large sizes, as advances in materials and manufacturing methods have made it easier for manufacturers to focus on making single-sided mattresses. As we have discussed, there are many types of quality single-sided mattresses, but a quality double-sided mattress is almost always the best option.

M&N Mattress is proud to be one of the few mattress retailers that carries double sided mattresses. We are even more proud of the fact that our selection of 2 sided mattresses are made by one of the top manufacturers in North America. The 2 sided mattress from Kingsdown combines traditional, hand-made manufacturing methods with the latest in top quality materials available. In doing so, this mattress can be placed among the best in terms of overall quality, durability and comfort. At M&N, we are dedicated to helping our customers get the most out of their mattress, which means a quality night’s sleep each night for many, many years.
