One of the most common questions that we hear is “How firm should my mattress be?” The answer to that really depends on a number of factors, including your personal preference, your preferred sleep position, any health issues you might have, and whether you’re sleeping in the bed alone or with a partner.
When picking a new mattress, one thing to keep in mind is that mattress firmness and mattress support are two different things. A softer mattress doesn’t mean that it offers less support, it just means that it has a plusher surface.
Your sleep position is one of the most important factors to keep in mind when selecting your mattress’ firmness. If you tend to sleep on your side, you’ll probably want to go with a softer mattress that will be easier on your joints. If you like to sleep on your stomach, a firmer mattress is going to offer you the most comfort. If you’re a back sleeper, you’ll probably want to go for something in the middle of the road when it comes to firmness.
If you’re sharing the bed with someone, take both of your sleeping positions and habits into consideration. If you differ in your opinions on mattress firmness, you can get a mattress that allows you to each customize the mattress firmness on your side of the bed.
When you’re looking for a mattress, be sure to actually lay down on the mattress to see if it feels comfortable to you. Lay in the sleep position that you typically use to get a good feel for the comfort level. If you’re sharing the bed, have your partner test out the mattress with you, as this can affect the feel of the mattress.
