Mattresses can be fairly misunderstood when it comes to many of the terms we associate with comfort. People blind to the industry talk about their desire for a soft and “cloud-like” sort of experience, but in actuality, the best sleep can occur where suitable with a firm mattress. People incorrectly assume a firm mattress is going to offer a worse experience akin to sleeping on the floor or a board, but the truth could not be further from that, a well-constructed firm mattress can make sleeping an enjoyable experience once more. Much of the hype around firm mattresses stems from those who like to sleep on their back and stomach, that’s because in these instances a soft mattress can actually harm the alignment within the lower back due to sinkage. Firm mattresses are also most suitable for those that are over 200 pounds due to the additional support on offer with a tighter spring set-up. Firm mattresses offer enough support and comfort so that those that are most in need of such a mattress can wake up feeling energised and refreshed.
