There is no wrong way to build a Helix
A UNIQUE LOOK AT MATTRESS SELECTION
Helix sleep is completely customized, so it’s hard for us to give an accurate report for the different types of bed. Each sleeper will each have a unique bed based on how they answer the Helix mattress quiz. The best we can do is offer our research on how the Helix performed given certain settings.
The questionnaire is a bunch of necessary information that helps Helix match you with the correct bed. They ask for age, height, weight and even how wide your shoulders are.
Once you have finished the quiz, Helix shows you the results. They break it down into four different elements, Point Elasticity, Feel, Support, and Temperature. Sleepers can see how they score on each of these various sections.
This measures how compression spreads across the mattress. Elasticity correlates to how the mattress contours and adjusts to the sleepers body.
This is how hard the surface of the bed will feel against your body. Body weight plays into this significantly, as heavier individuals will want a firmer mattress.
This is necessary for sleeping position and body weight. It’s important to have good support, but too much can hurt your back.
This is important for hot sleepers who might live in a warm location. Colder sleepers might want a mattress that retains some heat.
BLENDED VS. SPLIT MATTRESS
Adding to the customization was the ability to blend or split the mattress. There are important distinctions between the two. Sleepers should take the time to understand what each means.
BLENDED HELIX MATTRESS
The blended mattress is one full mattress with a blend of the settings between the two sleepers. If you sleep firm and your partner sleeps soft, the blended mattress is a medium level of firmness. The Blended bed is a good mattress for couples who regularly switch sides of the bed.
SPLIT HELIX MATTRESS
The Split mattress is two beds attached in the middle. Your side will have your specific settings while your partner’s side will be theirs. The two beds are combined at the factory and reportedly have no noticable seam during sleep. This process does take an extra couple of days and is only available for the Queen, King and Cal-King. It’s a perfect mattress for couples who keep to their sides of the bed.
Let’s check out what is happening under the sheets. Our Dreamfoam Bedding Ultimate Dreams Supreme Gel Mattress Review found the bed to be 12′ thick and consisting of 3 different layers.
