Picking the perfect mattress doesn't have to keep you up at night. We know it's a tough decision and deciding on the perfect firmness might be confusing to most people. Buying your mattress is an investment, not only financially but because this singular piece of furniture is directly related to the health and wellness of who uses it, you! There are many factors in play when choosing the correct firmness level. For example, what's your sleeping style, what are your support and comfort requirements, or do you have any medical issues that play a part in your sleep.
Perception of the terms 'soft' and 'firm' vary from person to person so there are other factors that come into play. We have to take into consideration the sleeping position, the weight of a person, is this person sleeping along or with a partner. These and other factors all determine what level of firmness the person purchasing their mattress has to consider.
So what is firmness? It's how you feel when you initially lie down on the mattress. How does the mattress contour to your body? Does it relieve pressure or cause pressure? Does it support your body where you need it or does it lack the amount of pushback you need? This is based on a person's personal experience. The only way to know for sure is to lay down and feel it.
Selecting a perfect mattress doesn't have to be difficult if you know what you are looking for; a better night's sleep. So do not let this decision keep you up at night.
