No matter how long you sleep – restful sleep has a lot to do with choosing the right mattress. And, in turn, Are built with the physique: they tend to be large and compact, have more belly than Butt? Then you are in the H-type. Or rather small to mittelfroß, with a slim waist and a strong Po? Then you would be the A-type (the description of The body types of Foundation goods test.) For back sleepers, the shoulder and the head should not sink in too deep. For side sleepers the spine should form a straight line.
2. Stay away from mattress pads
