Waterbeds are making a comeback on the sleep scene, and for good reason. Otherwise known as “flotation sleep,” it’s taking all the appeal of the waterbed and giving it a majorly modern upgrade. Think temperatures control, wave suppression, a lighter design—and it even works with any type of bed.
Though ultimately, the reason waterbeds are back (and here to stay) is that flotation is sleep is just plain good for you. Make that five reasons, actually, which you can read all about right here.
1. Precise Pressure Distribution
Pressure relief is a big deal when it comes to mattresses. That’s because the right distribution allows for better circulation and less tossing and turning. In other words, it equals deeper, more restful sleep, which is really the main goal of a mattress right?
Good thing the Afloat waterbed provides the most precise pressure distribution ever. This is because the fluid surface instantly molds itself to the shape of your body—no matter your sleep position
2. No More Sagging
We know sagging is a common complaint with traditional mattresses, and it’s caused by the materials used for memory foam and innerspring construction. Foam and fiber compress over time, which reduces the comfort of your mattress over time—and causes the dreaded “sunken” area. Meanwhile, water literally cannot sag, making it another point for the Afloat waterbed.
3. Water is Therapeutic
We love water for its healing properties, whether it’s icing your foot after an injury, or taking a soothing bath on a stressful day. This same concept applies to the Afloat water bed, which uses the natural therapeutic properties of water and brings it to bedtime. And the more soothing your sleep environment is, the better your rest will be.
4. Precise Temperature Control
Do you sleep hot? Or cold? Either way, the precise temperature control of the Afloat waterbed has you covered. While traditional mattresses can only help to a certain degree (pun intended), Afloat allows you to pick your exact temperature.
And the comfort factor is just the start. We love this feature since it can save you money on your energy bills as well. Instead of turning down the air conditioning and cooling the entire house, you can turn down your waterbed and cool just yourself.
5. Hypoallergenic and Clean Sleep
Listen, nobody likes to talk about bed bugs. And the good news is that you’ll never have to with Alfoat. That’s because it’s designed with an impermeable liner that prevents any bed bugs or dust mites from moving and causing allergies—and no other mattress can say that.
Furthermore, it’s topped with a removable stretch knit cover that is easily machine washed. That means your mattress can always stay as clean and pristine as the day you got it.
And there you have it. These five reasons are just the start of endless nights of great sleep. So forget the memory foam, the innersprings, and instead just add water.
