Firm Mattress or Soft Mattress? That also depends on your sleeping position.

Almost every mattress manufacturer (including yours truly) advertises each of their mattresses as good for back support. But how can each mattress be good for the back support?

Nowadays mattresses are available for varied comfort levels, including soft bouncy mattresses, going all the way to hard mattresses. And finding which firmness level you should go for has been an unanswered question for many.

There are many factors that determine which comfort level works for you, including age, your current back condition, etc., but one often overlooked factor is your sleeping position.

Yea, the sleeping position also plays an important role in determining whether you should go for a firm mattress or a soft mattress.

Here is a quick cheat sheet from our experts:

Which types of sleepers should choose firm mattresses?

  • Back Sleepers: Back sleepers can benefit from a firm mattress to keep your body in a neutral position, preventing your spine from curving unnaturally which causes back pain.

  • Stomach Sleepers: Firm mattresses are also preferred for stomach sleepers since they provide adequate support for their hips and keep their lower backs from sinking too deep.

  • Heavy Sleepers: Individuals who are overweight tend to put more pressure on their mattress, which causes it to sag and lose support over time. Sleeping on a firm mattress keeps you comfortable and prevents sagging, ensuring a restful night's sleep.

Which types of sleepers should choose soft mattresses?

  • Side Sleepers: A soft mattress can relieve pressure on your hips and shoulders by conforming to your body's natural curves and distributing your weight more evenly.

  • Light Sleepers: People who are sensitive to movement, and noise, or who want to sink into mattresses may benefit from a softer mattress that absorbs more motion and reduces disturbances.

  • Arthritis or Fibromyalgia Sufferers: Those suffering from arthritis or fibromyalgia often experience stiffness and pain in their joints and muscles, and a soft mattress can provide relief by easing pressure points and promoting better circulation.
