Firm mattresses are designed for back and stomach sleepers who want a substantial, supportive feel rather than the experience of "sleeping on a cloud." Side sleepers should avoid firm mattresses as they often do not have enough body contouring capabilities which can lead to excessive pressure buildup in outlying areas like the hips and shoulders. But for many back and stomach sleepers (especially those with back, neck, or shoulder problems), a firm mattress can be essential for waking up without aches and pains.
Firm mattresses also tend to age better, boasting longer showroom comfort and an overall longer life as a result of thicker coil gauges, more dense comfort layers, and an overall more substantial design. Find the best firm mattress for your needs, today!
