Company description Futon Life Recommends recommends a minimum six inch 100% cotton futon for use on any convertible futon frame.
The six inch measurement applies not only to the new product but also to how thick it remains over its usable life. To measure thickness go to the middle of the side, place a hand on the top and bottom of the mattress and squeeze your hands together gently. Measure the distance between your two palms. If it is not a solid five inches the mattress does not meet the minimum. Please remember that this method is not very scientific since each person’s concept of gentle is different. Close to five inches is good. Three inches is not.
