Style Simba's bouncy bed with zoned suspension slats looks like a side-sleeper's dream
Sleep: Why do we dream?
© Adobe Stock Sleep: Why do we dream? that one remembers or not, dreams populate each of our nights. But what is their real function? Scientific research has made it possible to advance several possible implications of the dream in the organization. The dreams correspond to all the mental activities that occur while we are asleep, during which thoughts, visions and sensations are perceived as "real". Generally, they occur during the phase of Sleep Paradoxal , also called fast eye motion sleep.
Sleep specialist Simba is known for making mattresses and bedding, but it has just made the next logical jump and brought out a bed. Not just any bed, though: this one has slats that come with their own suspension system, all part of the brand's quest for "gravity defying comfort".
Simba is the brand behind T3's current #1, the , and also makes some excellent bedding. So you should be in good hands here (and regular mean you might well be able to save if you do decide to buy).
There is a body of thought amongst some mattress designers that offering a uniform feel across the whole sleep surface isn't an ideal approach, as certain areas of the body require more or less support to keep your spine properly aligned. As a result, you'll find some mattresses (although not Simba's) feature zones of different firmness. A similar approach has been applied in the new Simba bed bases, which feature a zoned, bouncy slat system that's designed to provide enhanced support exactly where it's needed.

First up, Simba has added a responsive suspension system at the ends of each slat, to 'intelligently cushion your weight and relieve back pressure' (see it in action in the GIF below). That's combined with slats of different widths – wider to support heavier parts of the body, like your hips, and thinner for lighter areas like your shoulders. The overall aim is to keep your body in neutral alignment as you sleep, with the slats responding to the body's positioning as you shift about, to keep you comfortable yet properly supported, whether you're on your side, back or front.
There are two sprung-slat arrangements you can choose between. The more basic is the 'Simba-React', which features sprung extra-wide slats where your lower back would lie, and more underneath your shoulders, while the rest of the slats are fixed. The fancier setup goes by the name 'Simba-Flex', and features has sprung slats all down the bed, and mixes up bigger and bouncier 'triple cushioned' slats with firmer, wider slats to provide zoned support.
Eight in 10 homeowners would like to repurpose a space in their home to include a cinema, gym and even a room purely for pets
Eight in 10 homeowners would like to repurpose a space in their home to include a cinema, gym and even a room purely for petsIf money was no object, homeowners would love an online games room (10 per cent), library or reading space (17 per cent) and pub or bar (11 per cent) in their home.
The other notable feature of these beds is that they're designed to be put together without the need for any tools. No tools at all! Not even an allen key. Take that, IKEA. Simba says you can assemble it in 10 minutes. We're tempted to suggest they might be using the same kind of timer Jamie Oliver employed when recording his 15-minute meals, although we might be wrong, because the instruction list does look surprisingly simple.
Other than that, you've got three different designs to choose from, all of which are handmade in the UK, and you can pick and mix different headboards, slat systems, colours and legs to get the exact bed you want. The upholstery has something called 'active spill resistance', which means liquid droplets will sit on the surface where, if you're quick, you can just wipe them off before they sink in and create a stain. Useful if you're in the habit of flinging your Sunday morning coffee over your shoulder as you drink it.
The Simba bed frames are available in double, king and super king, with prices starting at £1079. Like the brand's mattresses, they come with a 200 night free trial.
The best curl creams to buy in 2021 .
Define your curls with softness, not stiffness If you’re wearing your curly or wavy hair in its natural pattern, chances are you need something to help define the curls and hold them in place. Gels and mousses may do the job of defining shape but can tend to give a rather crisp finish; for defined structure that still allows natural bounce and movement, a curl cream (or creme) is a great alternative. Lighter than a wax, thicker than a serum and softer than a gel, curl creams are usually formulated with hydrating ingredients to help encourage curls and tame frizz while holding the hair softly in place.
