Who is a firmer mattress suitable for?
Whilst you should choose a mattress based on your personal preference for comfort and support, the softer and firmer mattresses are designed with body types in mind. If you have back problems or are heavier, a firmer mattress can best support you while sleeping. They're able to evenly distribute your weight, as well as properly support your hips and shoulders so your spine is aligned correctly. Without this, you could wake up with aches and pains from not being properly supported. Therefore if you feel that a firmer sleeping surface will benefit you most, such mattresses could be the better option for you.
