What to consider when selecting the firmness of your mattress

Soft mattresses

  • These conjure up thoughts of floating on air or relaxing on a soft, fluffy and sumptuous mattress
  • Unfortunately soft mattresses rarely support your body correctly and can lead to sleeping with a poor posture
  • For those that insist on a softer mattress we do offer a range of soft to medium rated mattresses

Medium mattresses (Recommended)

  • A good quality medium firmness mattress will usually provide the correct levels of comfort and support for most sleepers
  • The majority of the quality mattresses we offer at sleepmatters are medium or medium/firm
  • Available in a wide choice of styles and prices there is something to suit everyone

Medium to firm mattresses (Recommended)

  • If you have been using a very firm mattress or are concerned that a medium firmness is not quite enough then we have a range of mattresses that are just that little firmer
  • These are very popular and are ideal if you need that little bit more support

Firm or very firm mattresses

  • The days of a firm mattress being the solution to a bad back are long gone.
  • Correct support and improved pressure relief are now recommended
  • However, we do offer a small number of firm mattresses for those people that enjoy or are used to a hard mattress or have specific requiremments

Sleepmatters firmness rating scale

  • There is no industry standard test to grade the firmness rating of a mattress as everyone has a different perception of firmness or comfort
  • With the increasing range of materials the ‘feel’ of a mattress can differ whilst the ‘firmness’ can be very similar
  • You also need to consider the varying combinations of materials that are now used in mattress construction and the wide range of mattress covers available

At sleepmatters we have used our many years in the bed and mattress industry, to provide you with a firmness rating that provides the closest possible gauge to help choose the right mattress for your personal needs
