When the time comes for you to shop for a new bed, it means finding the perfect mattress. – one that is going to provide you with a great night’s sleep every night for many years to come. In order to ensure you will enjoy going to bed at night, one of the most important things to consider is mattress comfort level or firmness. Let’s take a look at each level of comfort and who they are best suited for.

Comfort Level Soft

Also known as plush, these are ideal for those who sleep on their sides and not recommended for those who sleep on their backs and stomachs. Typically, these mattresses feature multiple soft layers of varying materials such as memory foam and inner springs to provide support for your hips and shoulders. For those looking to find the perfect mattress that provides the right blend of support and comfort, while feeling like they are sleeping in a hug, a plush mattress might be the way to go.

Comfort Level Medium

Those labeled as having a medium mattress comfort level, tend to be ideal for the combination sleeper, the person who tends to sleep on their back, side, stomach, and everything in between. This type of mattress is good for those with back problems as they provide superior support for the lower back muscles. The most common constructions include gel memory foam, soft memory foam, and innerspring. These are the most common for couples who have differing sleep needs.

Comfort Level Firm

If you sleep on your back or stomach, finding the perfect mattress means choosing one with a firm comfort level. For those of you who sleep on your stomach, a firm mattress will help keep your spine and hips in alignment. Manufacturers like Sealy, Stearns & Foster, Scott Living, Biltmore, Tempur-Pedic, and Bed’r Mattress use a variety of materials to craft a mattress designed to keep your spine correctly aligned and ensure you wake up feeling rested and without pain.

It’s Not All About Position

While the position you and your partner sleep in and any ailments you might have, will have a significant impact on being able to find the perfect mattress, there is one more essential thing that needs to be considered when choosing the right mattress comfort level. This is the weight of each person who will be sleeping on the bed. How the mattress sinks, hugs, cools, feels, and supports each of you is affected by your individual and combined weight.

While our sleep experts need to ask this uncomfortable question, the answer will have a significant impact on the mattresses he can recommend for you. Keep in mind that no matter which mattresses our sleep experts recommend, you still need to “test drive’ each of them to ensure you find the right one.
