In medicine the fowlers position is a standard patient position. It is used for improving comfort, relieving pain, making eating easier or reading in bed. This relaxes the abdominal muscles allowing for improved breathing, promoting improved oxygenation through the lungs via improved muscular chest expansion.

Conventional spring systems are much harder on the joints than our spring-free latex mattresses – how many times have you tossed and turned or woken up sore because a spring was digging into you? Latex is naturally supportive, firm enough for proper lumbar support, while cushioning the joints for a deeper, pain-free sleep.
We will work very hard to make sure that doesn’t happen, but if it does, we will look after you. We recommend all our customers buy a mattress protector to increase the life and health of your mattress and, if you have been using that, we will happily exchange your mattress with another within 60-days of your purchase.
As eco-friendly as we can find! Our MLILY memory foam mattresses are CertiPur-US tested and certified, and all fabrics meet or exceed the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 for Confidence in Textiles. We source them from reputable companies we trust and, along with being pollutant-free during production, the end product is also free of any chemical raw material residues.
They are the best! Being natural, hypo-allergenic and dust-mite resistant, latex is the perfect choice for sleepers with allergies, asthma, skin irritations or breathing difficulties. They also naturally dispense moisture and heat build-up so are ideal for a comfortable, temperate sleep.
The process of extracting the ‘milk’ or ‘sap’ from the latex trees is non-invasive, and means that the trees are protected and grown as a renewable resource – with each tree continuing to remove carbon from the environment for up to 100 years! The amount of trees on an average plantation removes around 143 TONS of carbon dioxide from the air. Not only that, but the production of the mattress itself is more environmentally friendly than mattresses with synthetic, petro-chemically derived P.U foams. Latex mattresses are truly a plant-friendly option. Find out more about our latex mattresses here.
