Three Quarter Mattress Sets

Not quite a full size and larger than a twin size, the three quarter mattress set is perfect for the solo sleeper looking for added room and comfort. At 48 inches wide and 75 inches long, the three quarter size mattress set has remained a popular choice among many mattress buyers. The three quarter size mattress is often compared to a super single water bed though the super single is 84 inches long.

Three Quarter Mattress Sets

How the three quarter size mattresses came into being is a matter of some speculation. There does not seem to be a historical record that accurately traces its origin. Still, given the current demand for bedding and other accessories for the three quarter size, it is clear that many people folks still own this rather unique size of mattress. Once thought to be obsolete, three quarter size mattress sets can still be purchased though usually be special order.

The demand for three quarter size mattresses and foundations is likely driven by the large number of old bed frames still in use. This is not the only reason however since new three quarter size bed frames are still being manufactured. An old or antique bed frame that is still serviceable can maintain its value especially given that the fact that new three quarter size mattress sets are still available.

During the Industrial Revolution, producers discovered the value of standardization. The greater the degree of product commonality the less expensive it is to produce an item. Henry Ford and other early pioneers of assembly line manufacturing understood this concept and applied standardization whenever it was economically feasible.

Mattress manufacturers seized on the idea of standardization as it applied to bed sizes. The bed sizes that most of us have become accustomed to range from twin to king. There was certainly collaboration between mattress makers and bed frame producers since the two industries are very interdependent. Of the widely available bed sizes, the standard queen size is the most popular. That the queen bed is the most popular size is not surprising since a queen bed can accommodate the solo sleeper or a couple quite comfortably.

Still, the 3-4 mattress set is still available for those folks who have either grown accustom to the extra sleeping room or still own a perfectly good three quarter size bed frame.

While a few mattress sellers actually have three quarter mattress sets in stock, most will not. Many mattress sellers are able and willing to custom order a three quarter mattress set. With these shopping options at hand, consumers looking for three quarter mattresses and foundations do not have to settle for just any old mattress. Just as with other mattress sizes, there are various levels of firmness, comfort and support.

Three Quarter Mattress Sets and Support

Contrary to what many folks believe, the number one reason for choosing a particular mattress type is not comfort. Most folks are looking for support and mattress manufacturers are keenly aware of this fact. We spend roughly one third of our lives in bed and sleeping on a mattress that does not offer an adequate level of support can affect us many ways.

Poor sleep and lack or sleep has been cited as the cause of a whole host of physical and psychological maladies. Everything from cardiac health to body weight can be affected by the quality of the sleep we get. Sleeping on a mattress that does not adequately support the body can cause us to toss and turn during the night. The result is waking up feeling tired and not at all rested affecting our day time activities and even our work performance.

Recent studies have shown that not sleeping well can adversely affect our physical health and even cause to gain weight. Sleep allows our body to recuperate and is a natural bodily function. Constantly waking up, tossing and turning can put a strain on the body. Sleep deprivation puts an enormous strain on the body and sleep deficits are very hard to overcome.

With Support Comes Comfort

Whether you choose a traditional flat top mattress, pillow top or plush top, make sure that that the mattress provides you with enough support. The innerspring mattress is still the most popular choice for sleep systems. Even if you are in the market for a three quarter mattress set, you can choose among innerspring and foam mattress constructions. Regardless of which type of three quarter mattress set you choose, find one that provides enough support and is comfortable to sleep in. When considering a mattress purchase, always give the mattress a thorough test drive. Spend enough time lying down in the position you normally sleep in. Above all, do not buy a mattress set solely on the basis of price.
