Looking for a really firm mattress? Here are some options.
Choosing the right mattress is a good foundation to a good night’s sleep. Mattresses have a huge impact on our comfort and health. These days, lots of people are opting for firmer mattresses. In this enormous market, it can be difficult to know where to start. We’re here to help.
Firmness comes with personal preference, so one size won’t ever fit all. Still, there are some things to look out for when you’re choosing a firm mattress. Here are some of them.
Mattress firm rating
Firm ratings do exactly what they say on the tin, they tell you just how firm you can expect your mattress to be. They run from one to ten, with ten being the firmest. Since we’re dealing here specifically with firm mattresses, a rating of six or seven is the softer end of the firm scale, and classed as a medium. Mattresses rated between seven and eight are classed as medium-firm. Firm mattresses are rated at an eight or a nine, and extra-firm mattresses are rated as a ten.
Choosing good health for your future
It’s important that you make no assumptions. You might think you want an exceptionally firm mattress, but it’s a good idea to try one before you buy. Spine health is very important, and when you’re horizontal you need to be supported.
Choosing the right mattress for you will ease and relax your muscles, improve your posture, and enhance your ability to sleep, but be cautious. If you’re exceptionally thin, we’d encourage you to steer away from firm mattresses, because your body weight is not enough to push up the material and support the curve of your back, or your waist.
A good mattress will hold your body in a neutral position and encourage your spine into the correct form. There should be no pressure anywhere. You should feel like you’re on a cloud.
Gaining a firm advantage
There are many advantages to a firm mattress. First, they’re sturdy, so they keep your lower back from collapsing and help you take in more oxygen. When the body loses its natural positioning, its body weight is not distributed evenly, and this can interrupt your sleep.
Firm mattresses have the ability to take away stress applied on muscles and enhance your circulation, because the bones will take the role of absorbing most of the pressure.
At Sleep Express, our mattresses are categorised as the following:
- Hydro Gel
- Natural organic
- Advanced foam
To help you decide which is best for you, here is a selection from each:
Category - Sleepaedic
Firm rating - Medium
Available in sizes ranging from small-single to super king-size, this model is a pocket sprung memory foam mattress from our sleepaedic range. It’s hand-tufted and has a medium-firm feel. Medium firm mattresses offer a soft touch, and quickly respond to pressure. These are a popular choice for people who sleep on their side, because these mattresses offer some comfort and support.
Category - Hydro Gel
Firm rating - Medium firm
In our hydrogel range, the Sirius 3000 PT costs more to buy, but it makes up for it with a series of features. This mattress has hydrogel cooling foam, which regulates temperature by pulling heat away from the body when you are too hot and increasing the flow of air, creating a better environment for sleeping.
With its hypoallergenic stretch fabric, this mattress is a great choice for people who suffer with allergies and sensitive skin.
Category - Natural Organic
Firm rating - Firm
The Naturel 2000 is from our natural organic range, and comes in a variety of sizes. Formed from organic filling, this mattress has been engineered double sided, which means improved weight distribution. You can flip it, so one side holds your body weight whilst the other side recovers and reshapes.
Ideal for changes in climate, this mattress is long-lasting, and its materials mean it breaks down quickly and reduces landfill, so it’s great for the environmentally conscious.
Category - Advanced Foam
Firm rating - Extra firm
The Lurex model from our advanced foam range is an extra firm mattress with multiple great features. It helps to relieve pressure points by keeping your spine aligned, and it’s anti-dust mite, so you won’t be sneezing your way to sleep. The anti-stretch fabric helps regulate body temperature, and it dissipates moisture, so you won’t have to worry about mould and mildew.
This is a great mattress for those who need extra support whilst they sleep.
