5 Best Firm Mattresses of 2023

If you are looking for great sleep, get a great mattress. Choosing the right mattress for your body type is like choosing a good night’s sleep. When you spend a third of your life on a great mattress, getting good quality restful sleep follows naturally. 

Now, getting that perfect mattress can be a daunting task because of the variety of mattresses available on the market. Not just the type but also to get the firmness right, making it the biggest decision when it comes to mattress buying. 

The choice regarding firmness boils down to personal preference. However, if you are stuck, you can go through our guide, which might help you make an informed decision.

What makes a perfect mattress?

Before jumping into the types and firmness, let’s understand what makes a perfect mattress. A perfect mattress offers you great and comfortable sleep night after night. Trying out mattresses before buying them is highly recommended if you are unsure of which one to buy.

Understanding spinal alignment and appropriate support are of utmost importance while choosing the right mattress. 

  • A perfect mattress will support your spine in a neutral position.
  • A perfect mattress should feel no pressure on any part of your body, like floating in the air.
  • A perfect mattress should relax the muscles and enhance your sleep pattern.

An incorrect mattress will cause you pains, aches, tosses, and turns, interfering with your sleep cycle. 

Difference between the soft and firm mattress

The difference between a soft and firm mattress is noticeable in the feel of the mattress. A soft mattress is plusher and compresses easily when pressure is applied. At the same time, a firm mattress is more inflexible to the touch and does not easily compress when pressure is applied. 

It is important to note that the firmness spectrum is not divided into just soft and firm, the scale is broader, and the consumer has many options regarding firmness levels.

Who should use a firm mattress

Stomach sleepers: Firm mattresses are best suited for stomach sleepers. A firm mattress supports the stomach region and prevents the torso from sinking, resulting in proper spine alignment. If the mattress is too soft, the spinal curve can become exaggerated, leading to chronic neck and back pain. 

Back sleepers:  When sleeping on the back, hips and buttocks tend to sink if the mattress is too soft, resulting in a misaligned spine. Back sleepers usually like firm mattresses that align their hips with the shoulders and head. When the body is properly aligned, you can completely relax and rejuvenate. 

Heavy sleepers: Heavy-weight sleepers (over 230 pounds) may choose a firmer mattress for overall support, as a soft mattress might allow more sinkage and less support. If a mattress is too soft, the sleeper might feel stuck in the mattress, also tricky to change positions during the night. This restricted movement can lead to poor circulation. A firm mattress helps the sleeper sleep “on the bed,” allowing the lungs to expand and blood to circulate smoothly.
