Is this the right mattress firmness for me?

Finding the right support tension for you depends on what your preferred sleeping position is. Generally speaking, a firmer mattress is best suited for back and stomach sleepers. This is because a firm mattress firmness level provides more support to keep your spine aligned in a healthy position whilst sleeping in these ways. Sleeping on your stomach places strain on your lower back, so opting for a firm mattress is the best way to provide extra support to your back. A firmer mattress is also best designed for stomach and back sleepers as this tension can evenly distribute body weight sufficiently and provide pressure relief to pressure points. A soft mattress firmness would cause back pain when sleeping in these positions as the mattress surface would supply too much cushioning and would keep your spine aligned in an incorrect position.

If you suffer from back pain, joint pain or hip pain, you may want to consider opting for an extra firm mattress or orthopaedic mattress instead, as this is the ideal mattress firmness that will provide additional support in order to combat these aches and pains.

What types of firm mattresses are available?

Traditional springs

From a pocket spring mattress to open coil options, our range of traditionally sprung firm mattresses provide a supportive and stable foundation to get a great night's sleep for many years. Open coil options are typically orthopaedic mattresses which makes them one of the best firm mattress types, whereas a pocket spring mattress is fantastic for distributing weight evenly which alleviates pressure.

Memory foam

A memory foam mattress as a firmer option is usually combined with a traditionally sprung system to comprise a hybrid mattress. The memory foam mattress layer will conform to the contours of your body shape, whilst you still receive firm support from the pocket springs or open coil system below.

Latex and Geltex

Similarly, latex and Geltex are often paired with a sprung system in order for you to benefit from the firm support and comfort that these layers offer. Natural latex is super-breathable, whilst Geltex is a gel-infused memory foam that is known for temperature regulation.
