The Guide tobuy Mattress


Answering the question "Which mattress suits me" is often difficult and time-consuming. Cold foam, spring core, latex, visco foam-- who knows? Bruno explains and gives insight into the different mattress materials and their properties. Especially with health ailments, such as back pain or a herniated disc, the choice of the right mattress should not be underestimated. But other factors affect the mattress choice.

Mattress Materials

Cold Foam

Cold foam mattresses are particularly suitable for people who find little peace of mind during sleep, often roll back and forth or change their sleeping position frequently. The body support of the cold foam mattresses is ideal for a restless sleep behavior. People with back problems or joint problems are also enthusiastic about the supportive function of a cold foam mattress.

Allergy sufferers, however, appreciate the hygienic properties of the mattress material, because house dust mites have some difficulties. People who tend to freeze are very well served with the cold foam mattress. The extraordinary heat insulation protects against nocturnal frost and ensures a healthy and restful sleep.

Cold foam mattresses are particularly suitable for people who want to avoid sinking deep into the mattress. They favor a stable reclining position with a mid-soft to medium-firm feeling. With the help of you can have the best deal now.


Spring mattresses are particularly suitable for abdominal or back sleepers. The stability of the mattress material is beneficial at this point for abdominal and back sleepers.

If you have back problems, it is not recommended to buy a spring mattress. The comparatively hard mattress material does not adhere so strongly to the body and can thus harm back problems rather than relieve them. Likewise, allergy sufferers do not like feather mattresses. The surface of the mattress material consists of fragile pores, which can promote the formation of mites.

Spring mattresses are ideal for overweight people because of their hardness. Another feature is the extraordinary air permeability, which benefits people with high heat sensation.


Visco foam mattresses are the perfect companion for side sleepers (also suitable for abdominal and back sleepers) who change their sleeping position only occasionally and usually have a quiet sleep behavior.

Individuals suffering from back problems, orthopedic complaints or circulatory problems benefit from the advantages of the visco mattress. But beware, in contrast to cold foam or latex, the room temperature in the bedroom must be 18 degrees, otherwise the visco foam can not adapt well to the body

The visco foam mattress is not suitable for nocturnal. The high heat insulation can deprive heat-sensitive people of sleep.


As with the mattress materials, there are different options for the degree of hardness. Often the distinction is made according to "hard, medium hard or soft". However, this information is not bound to any standard. In general, people with higher weight should always use a harder mattress. Too hard, however, is not suitable for everyone, because hard mattresses can often lead to sleepless nights. Lighter people tend to like softer mattresses. But there are restrictions here as well.

Much more important than the degree of hardness, however, are the mattress materials and the structure of the mattress. As explained in the previous section, there are mattress types, such as cold foam or latex, which adapt perfectly to the body and thus always ensure a healthy sleep position. How does it work? See below using the example of our Bruno mattress.

Top quality Made in Germany

The production of the Bruno mattress takes place in Germany. This ensures a very high quality.

Bruno is independent of large mattress companies: Without compromise, therefore, only high-quality PU cold foam and 100% natural latex are used for the mattress core. The mattress cover is also an innovation: The lying surface is made of 100% cotton and the (under) side of durable polyester.

Cold foam mattresses in the overview: What must be considered when buying?

Cold foam mattresses are by far the favorite in German bedrooms, with a market share of over 30%. There are cold foam mattresses in different quality and type. We call you advantages and disadvantages of cold foam mattresses and what you should pay attention to when buying.

What is a cold foam mattress?

Cold foam is produced by foaming a polyurethane base with only low heat input - hence the name cold foam. In contrast to hot foam this is harmless to health. The foams are produced in a complex process and then cut into large blocks. These large cold foam blocks are then processed further.

The fields of application are diverse and range from seals in the car over upholstered furniture to mattresses. Basically, the foams can be differentiated on the basis of their hardness and the density (quality factor). The volume weight is measured in "kg / m³". The value indicates how much material was actually processed in the foam. This can be explained by the example of a bun: Little dough can be "inflated" with a lot of air to a big bun - but causes issues for the taste. The situation is similar with the cold foam of the mattresses. A lot of air and little material result in a low volume weight and thus a significantly shorter durability of the mattress.

  • A high volume weight makes itself pay in reverse, especially with a long-term use. From a density of 40kg / m³ one can speak of a high-quality cold foam mattress.

The incorporation of different profiles in the mattress creates different lying areas. For example, in the case of a cold foam mattress, the surface structure of the head area differs from that of the hip area. Cold foam mattresses are often divided into different zones. One of the most common types of construction is the 7-zone cold foam mattress, but also mattresses with three or five different lying areas are common. The individual zones have a different texture and are adapted to the contours and focal points of the human body.

So sinking in more heavily loaded areas can lead to a healthier posture. The zones are symmetrical and divide depending on the number of lying areas in the pelvic, shoulder and head area as well as the hip zone located in the middle. Thus, it is insignificant, which side is used as the head or foot side, since the mattresses are the same from both sides. The nature of the individual lying zones is influenced by different cuts and cuts.
