Is an extra firm mattress firmness right for me?

Firmer mattresses are generally recommended to people who prefer the back or stomach sleeping position. This is because the firmer mattress foundation promotes healthy spine alignment when in these sleeping positions, and the same goes for extra firm mattresses too. However, extra firm mattresses or orthopaedic options feature the sturdiest sleeping surface, which is most suitable for people who suffer from back pain, neck problems or pain in their joints or hips, as the additional support can help combat these pains. With this, due to the rigid springs in an extra firm mattress, people with a heavier build are even more supported and promotes a good posture. Sleeping on softer mattresses when any of these apply to you will cause your spine to rest in an unhealthy position all night, which can cause you to wake up not only with aches and pains but also feeling unsupported and unrefreshed. A soft mattress firmness rating is best designed for side sleepers and those with light body weight.

What types of extra firm mattresses are available?

Spring mattresses

Some of the best extra firm mattresses are comprised of pocketed sprung mattresses and open coil orthopaedic options. When finding what the best extra firm mattress is for your needs, a sprung option can definitely supply what you're looking for. An open coil or pocket sprung extra firm mattress contains rigid spring systems, which helps maintain the firmness rating and combat aches and pains for a good night's sleep. Many of the sprung extra firm mattresses we feature in our ranges showcase the finest materials, fillings and budget options.
