Despite the pressures of life in the 21st century, we’re still spending about a third of our lives in bed, and while there getting a good night’s sleep is essential.

During sleep our body cleanses and restores itself, getting our bodies ready for the demands of the next day.

Without the proper amount of good, restorative sleep, you’ll probably wake up tired and grouchy rather than rested and refreshed.

If you’ve had trouble sleeping lately there’s a good chance your old mattress is the culprit. At Mattress Direct, we fully appreciate the importance of a good night’s sleep, and we’ll do all we can to help you find the new mattress that’s best for you. Many factors go into the selection of a new mattress, but one of the most crucial is firmness.

What is mattress firmness?

Basically, the firmness of a mattress boils down to how it feels when your first lie down on it. If it pushes back with a hard, stiff-like feel, most consider that a firm or very firm mattress. On a 10-point firmness scale, these fall into the 7.5 – 9 range.

If the mattress has more of a cloud-like feel and seems to contour to your body and hug you, most would consider that plush or soft, typically falling into the 3 – 5 range.

Finally, some mattresses provide a balanced level of push-back, contour and hug, and most consider that medium firmness, falling into the 6 – 7 range.

So, what level’s best for you?

To answer that question, think about the position you normally sleep in, as that’s probably the most important factor in your choice.

Side sleeper, consider something in the 3 – 6 range.

Stomach sleepers probably want something in the 5 – 7 range.

Back sleepers, 4 – 8, and if you sleep in multiple positions, consider something balanced, around a 6.
