We are all different kinds of sleepers and as a result require a different type of mattress. Choosing by ‘feel’ lets you add that personalised touch, mixing the right levels of comfort and support for a great night’s sleep. Browse below and see which ‘feel’ sounds like you – super firm, firm, gently firm, medium or soft.
If you can camp on the ground or the living room floor without waking up stiff and sore, this could very well be your best bet. These mattresses are built with a heavier gauge coil and a tighter quilting pattern to give them a “hard” feel.
Firm mattresses are stiff, resistant, and offer less quilting than other comfort levels, making firm mattresses ideal for the back sleeper. Whether or not a firm mattress is comfortable depends solely on the user's preference. For back pain sufferers, it is generally recommended to sleep on medium to firmer mattress.
Gently firm mattresses lie somewhere between hard and soft, providing the great support of a firm mattress with a little extra padding. For those who like sleeping on a hard surface with some added comfort, cushion firm mattresses are the right choice.
Suitable for all kinds of sleepers and for those who sleep mostly on their side or in lots of different positions a medium mattress is a great all round choice. A medium mattress will tend to conform to the shape of your body offering gentle and comfortable support.
Soft mattresses offer support similar to a firm mattress but are more comfortable and conforming to the body. Plush mattresses feature a built in soft top, offering more comfort and suppleness than a typical mattress. Plush surfaces provide more elasticity and spring with a softer surface, yet remain supportive.
