Mattress Comfort

Your Mattress Should Get on Your Level – Your Comfort Level

Dreaming of getting better sleep? A new mattress with the right comfort level that fits your sleeping position is just what you need for the rejuvenating sleep you deserve.

What Are Mattress Comfort Levels?

Figuring out what works best for your unique sleep style might leave you feeling a little like Goldilocks, but since we make your shopping experience all about you, we’re here to simplify it for you.

Mattress comfort level, or mattress firmness, is describing the mattress cushion level (not the support level)—basically, answering if the mattress is soft or hard.

Should I Get A Plush or Ultra Plush Mattress?

Do you love the feel of sleeping on a cloud? Then a mattress in the plush comfort level range might be your speed. But before you decide, keep in mind that while a super-soft mattress sounds divine, it might not actually be healthy for your preferred sleep position.

But, if you sleep on your side or suffer from shoulder or hip pain, you should definitely consider the deep pressure relief of a plush or ultra-plush mattress. Ultimately, choosing between regular plush or ultra-plush depends on your personal preference.

What is a Medium or Medium Firm Mattress?

Mattresses that are in the medium firmness level are just that—they’re in between the soft cushioning of a plush comfort level and the hardness of firm.

Stomach sleepers will greatly benefit from the body-contouring support of a medium or medium-firm mattress and will avoid excess back pain that might result from sleeping on a softer mattress. Speaking of back pain, if you’ve been experiencing lower back pain, then a medium comfort level is more your speed.

Medium-level mattresses can also accommodate back and side sleepers, which makes them a good compromise for couples with different sleeping positions.

When Should I Consider a Firm or Extra Firm Mattress?

Considering a firm or extra firm mattress depends on how much back support you need. If you’ve been waking up with minimal back pain, then a medium comfort level is all you need. However, if your back pain is extensive, like can’t-sit-for-too-long bad, then you should consider a firm or extra-firm comfort level.

Firm and extra-firm mattresses offer stellar spinal alignment, providing more pressure relief on your back as you sleep. So, if you’re a traditional back sleeper and want to avoid waking up with back pain, then the firm comfort level range is your wheelhouse.

And if you want to avoid feeling like you’re sleeping on a rock, consider adding a mattress topper (you’ll still get the same amount of mattress support).

How Can I Test Out the Comfort Level of a Mattress?

Testing out your mattress comfort level is ultimately really simple: just lay down on it and see how it feels. But to really get a more accurate feel of a mattress, try laying down for at least 10 minutes. This allows you to assess how the mattress cradles your body for a better fit.
