If you or a member of your family weighs over the standard weight ranges for their height, and they are using furniture that is not plus size furniture, it is only a matter of time before a chair is broken, an air mattress is popped or a large “dent” is made in an innerspring mattress.
Sitting and sleeping. These are two things we do everyday and they are often the most difficult (and potentially scary!) things we do all day.
If you haven’t broken a chair or a stool you probably have been sitting carefully, thinking that an accident was less likely to happen if you moved slowly, or didn’t move at all. Unfortunately the speed that you sit down has nothing to do with whether you are going to have an accident. Sad, but true. A plus size chair or plus size bed can alleviate those concerns and make life easier.
