Firmness

Mattresses come in different shapes and sizes, but they should offer you comfort. Some people like them soft; others prefer a little more support; however, it should always provide comfort for sleeping soundly without any pain or discomfort when you lie down on the mattress! Firm mattresses offer support for your back, while soft ones make sleeping easier by cradling your body as no other object can do! Firmness is personal and varies from person to person depending on what feels best when waking up.

The Cypress Affordable Memory foam offers different firmness for all four variants. The Cypress Classic at 11 inches scales 6 on a firmness scale of 10, thus giving a gentle firm feel, while the Classic Hybrid rates 5.5 and offers a medium-firm feel. The Luxe at 13 inches provides a medium-firm feel with firmness on the scale of 5 out of 10 and the Luxe Hybrid is medium-soft with firmness of 4.5.

The Cypress Classic with memory foam layers supports your body’s natural curves, thus relieving pressure. Charcoal-infused memory foam is specifically designed to provide highly adaptive comfort and excellent pressure relief. The upgraded Luxe version offers all the benefits of memory foam plus innerspring coil support. These coils help distribute your body weight evenly on the mattress, thus relieving you of aching pressure points and reinforcing the perimeters to offer your strong support along the edges.

Repositioning

(3.00/5)

Repositioning describes the ability to change positions easily while sleeping. The top layer of the Cypress, being made of memory foam, allows the firmer polyfoam underneath to push back, thus allowing ease of movement compared to other all-foam mattresses. Each of the Cypress variants has some advantage over the other for partners sleeping together and enjoying sex. The hybrid versions give a bouncier surface and firm edges that allow for the bed’s full use. In contrast, the all-foam models are silent thus making switching positions relatively easy.

Comfort, Back Support, Pressure Relief

(3.75/5)

Buying a mattress can be difficult as there is a variety of them available in the market. The right mattress will give you relief from pain upon waking up. So, pain relief is vital for most people looking to buy a new mattress. Back pain can only be relieved when the spine is relaxed.

Spine alignment and pressure relief of a mattress are essential in deciding which one to buy. To maintain good back support while you sleep, your spine must remain straight, similar to when you are standing. For a given mattress to do this will generally depend on your weight, sleep position, and body shape. When a mattress, which could be extra firm, rather than absorbing body weight, may push back against your body with too much force in a focused area resulting in pain, soreness, and other problems.

In general, “pressure points” are of greatest concern for side sleepers since the body’s weight is distributed over the smallest surface area. Pressure points are less of a concern for back sleepers as the body’s weight is spread over the entire body area, and force per unit area is minimized, creating fewer sharp pressure points. Pressure relief refers to a bed’s ability to alleviate tension at the pressure points concentrated in the body’s shoulders, hips, and lower back region. Unfortunately, no mattress delivers these two things equally well for all sleepers. Spinal alignment and pressure relief capabilities vary with weights, body shapes, and sleep positions across sleepers.

The Brentwood Cypress Affordable Memory foam with the different layers of memory foam and pocketed coils give the ultimate comfort and strong support. The Cypress Classic with dense foam layers and medium firmness offers good pressure relief. Because of the medium firmness, it will not cradle your body too much but will allow for more airflow. The foam layers with pocketed coils offer decent pressure relief in the Classic Hybrid. Unlike the all-foam variant, the Classic Hybrid gives a plusher feel making it a good choice for those looking for support and comfort. Dense foam layers in Cypress Luxe make the mattress suitable for providing decent pressure relief. The medium-firm feel gives good support to sleepers. The presence of an additional foam layer makes it softer than its classic variant. Like the Cypress Classic Hybrid, the Cypress Luxe Hybrid also comprises foam layers and pocketed coils which offer pretty good pressure relief. The mattress is soft, thus making it ideal for a comfortable sleep.

The suitability of the mattress for different sleeping positions is detailed below:

  • Back sleepers: Back sleepers need support under their spine and neck to sleep correctly. The Brentwood Cypress, because of its contouring memory foam layers, makes it ideal for almost all back sleepers. The mattress will provide ample support and pressure relief for back sleepers.
  • Side Sleepers: Side sleepers put the majority of their weights on their hips and shoulders; thus, they prefer a soft mattress to cushion their hips and shoulders. Side sleepers of average weight will benefit from sleeping on both the Cypress Classic and Luxe, whereas light and average weight side sleepers will enjoy sleeping on the Hybrid versions of the Cypress.
  • Stomach sleepers: Stomach sleepers need a firm mattress that would enable them to keep their hips elevated to prevent sinkage. The Brentwood Cypress is a good choice for light and average-weight stomach sleepers. The firmness will offer enough support to sleepers of these groups to sleep comfortably.
  • Heavy sleepers: Heavy sleepers need a firm mattress for restful sleep. Brentwood Cypress may offer some pressure relief to heavy sleepers but is not supportive enough. Heavy sleepers may experience sinking due to increased pressure on the mattress. Classic is not suitable for heavy sleepers.

Cooling & Temperature Control

(3.25/5)

The most critical ambiance determining the quality and duration of the body’s recovery during sleep is a substantial decrease in the core body temperature. Brentwood Cypress uses charcoal-infused memory foam that wicks away moisture and heat away from your body, so you stay dry, cool, and comfortable — all night long. Charcoal is an effective cooling and purifying mineral. It has many healing properties that include trapping toxins and chemicals in the body and flushing them out without reabsorption. The pocketed coil unit promotes airflow throughout the mattress thus maintaining a comfortable temperature.

Motion Isolation and Sharing a Bed

(4.25/5)

Motion isolation describes if movement made across one side of the mattress is felt elsewhere on the mattress or not. A mattress with good motion isolation will neutralize activity made on one side of the bed, thus assisting partners in sleeping peacefully.

The Brentwood Cypress Luxe models are better at preventing motion transfer than its Classic models, owing to a thicker comfort layer. This layer conforms to the body closely thus absorbing motion and preventing it from reverberating across the surface. The Hybrid versions, due to the presence of coils, offer bounce to the mattress. These coils are individually wrapped, thus minimizing motion transfer. Therefore, all four variants of the Cypress do a good job in preventing disturbance caused due to your partner’s movement. However, those sensitive to their partner’s movement should choose the Luxe or Luxe Hybrid.

Edge Support

(3.50/5)

Edge support defines the support that a mattress can offer around its edges. Edge support helps in stabilizing the perimeter of the mattress. It is essential for couples sharing their bed with partners, as poor performance may disturb their partners while getting in and out of bed, and limit using the full bed for sleeping together and having sex.

The Brentwood Cypress Affordable Memory foam is a highly durable mattress with adequate edge support. The presence of pocketed coils helps to distribute your body’s weight evenly on the mattress surface and relieve your aching pressure points. The reinforced coils across the perimeter ensure strong edges of Cypress Hybrid and Hybrid Luxe and prevent the edges from sagging. These reinforced perimeters will thus allow you to sleep or sit near the edges without the fear of falling off. In the all-foam versions, the high-density polyfoam prevents the edges from sagging thus making it safer to sit or sleep near the edges.

Recommendation based on sleeping style

Sleeping peacefully at night is as essential as eating good and nutritious food. Sleeping peacefully helps in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Each one of us sleeps differently, and our needs for comfort and support are also very different and unique. The U.S. Center for Disease Control claims that 1 out of 3 people has insomnia leading to various health problems. The

Below is a detailed description of how Brentwood Cypress Affordable Memory foam is a good fit for different sleep positions.

  • Side Sleepers: Side sleepers prefer a mattress that allows their hips and shoulders to sink in just the right amount, reducing pressure buildup. The Cypress Classic and Luxe are well suited to average-weight side sleepers who would get the right amount of contouring but may not be suitable for lightweight sleepers as they would feel it too firm to be comfortable. Heavy sleepers may get pressure relief sleeping on both variants, but it may not be that supportive. The Hybrid versions, on the other hand, are suitable for light and average weight side sleepers, who would get enough support for their hips and shoulders to sink in the right amount.
  • Back Sleepers: Back sleepers need to look for a mattress that supports their back and spine. Brentwood Cypress mattresses are made with contouring memory foam, making them an excellent choice for all back sleepers. This mattress shall provide ample support and pressure relief, but heavy sleepers may find it a bit less supportive.
  • Stomach Sleepers: Stability and support are essential for stomach sleepers not to cause back or hip pain; thus, they need firmer mattresses. The Brentwood Cypress is the best for light and average-weight stomach sleepers who would get adequate support because of their medium-firmness. Heavyweight sleepers may feel slightly sinking in due to increased pressure on the mattress.
  • Combination Sleepers-Those who alternate between various positions: Combination sleepers tend to change positions while sleeping. Combination sleepers will prefer to sleep on the Classic Hybrid version, which offers minimal contouring and a bouncier surface due to the coils.
