The quilting part is a key component of comfort
The quilting part is a key component of comfort because it gives a mattress its surface comfort … it’s closest to your body. (It also serves to secure the outermost fabric to the mattress’s interior layers: the fire-resistant fill, the layers of foam, other fill.)
Depending on your comfort preference, you’ll want to select the mattress model that meets those needs. Some examples:
- A deep, cushiony sensation calls for a large, or open quilt pattern.
- A firmer feel calls for a tighter top, or a smaller stitch pattern, which tends to compress the top padding.
