A firm mattress is just what the doctor ordered when you are looking for full-body support. As you would expect, a firm mattress doesn’t offer much ‘give’ when you lie down. This is ideal if you don’t appreciate the feeling of sinking into your bed. This also means that your bed is likely to last a very long time, feeling just the way you bought it even years down the line.
When you hear the term ‘firm’ mattress, you might expect your bed to feel as though you are lying on the carpeted floor or even a slab of concrete. This is not the case at all. Some ‘plush’ beds come categorized as firm. Unfortunately, there is no standard universal gauge for firmness. Each manufacturer sets their own scale, and the results can seem somewhat subjective.
Solution lies in personal attention as you search the “firm mattress” inventory of all the top mattress brands. At Wildcat Mattress, our Sleep Specialists will guide you through the maze to help you determine whether a firm surface is in fact what you are looking for, or if another comfort level might be suit you better.
When it comes to why you should sleep on a firm mattress, there are numerous benefits.
Firm mattresses are often an ideal choice for stomach and back sleepers as well as those who are overweight. Other benefits include:
On the other hand, if you tend to sleep on your side, suffer from arthritis, or if you sleep with a partner who prefers softer surfaces, a firm bed may not be for you.
Another reason to forgo a firm mattress is if you suffer from lower back pain. Doctors used to prescribe ultra-firm beds for sufferers of back pain. The less the back moved around, the less severe the pain is generally how the thinking went. This, as we now know, is flawed science.
Studies show that sufferers of back pain should choose a mattress that is somewhere between firm and soft. These semi-firm mattresses, such as pillow top beds that offer the latest in sleep coil technology and include a mixture of foam and memory foam, can help to alleviate back pain and keep the sufferer pain-free throughout the day as well.
If you suffer from back pain, tell your local Wildcat Mattress sleep specialist. You can then try various top-line beds right in our Nicholasville showroom, leaving you feeling satisfied that you chose the ideal bed for your bad back.
There are three major reasons why you should shop for your firm mattress locally at Wildcat Mattress.
