What kind of futon mattress should you get? If you get a single futon bed, the frame and mattress will probably come together. Mattresses sold in Western countries will usually be softer than those found in Japan, but they will still feel firm to people who have slept on soft mattresses all their lives. Buying a very cheap single futon is a bad idea as the mattress is likely to be somewhat flimsy, as is the frame. If you‘re lucky enough to find a store that specializes in selling futon mattresses (and they do exist), do check out their selection. These stores often carry a wide array of futons with different fillings, with several layers of cotton and foam sandwiched to provide a person‘s ideal level of support. The more expensive futons will be thicker and have more filling, but don‘t assume that bigger is better here. The thinner ones will likely provide better support and be less expensive as well.
Just what is a futon mattress, exactly? It is a very simple mattress which could almost be considered a portable padded surface, if we‘re talking about a traditional Japanese futon. They are everything hi-tech mattresses are not. They don‘t contain springs, coils, wire, or any type of metal. That means that as long as you‘re on a good, flat surface, there‘s nothing to poke you in the back. Just firm, even support throughout. If you think about it, we are meant to sleep on firm surfaces. It maintains a good posture if we are lying on our backs.
