Serta iComfort Comfort Scale®


The Serta iComfort 10 Point Scale: It's Easy to Use


Serta iComfort mattresses are categorized on our 10 point Comfort Scale®. It's important to understand the difference between support and comfort, as the comfort of a mattress is unrelated to the support your body receives from the inner structure.

Comfort Scale rating 1-2: Very Firm

A Serta iComfort mattress with a Comfort Scale rating of 1 or 2 is considered very firm. This level of comfort is only recommended for back sleepers and stomach sleepers who want the firmest mattress possible. If you like lying on a carpeted floor, that's almost what a Comfort Scale rating of 1 feels like. A Comfort Scale rating of 2 may have a little padding, but still not much. These mattresses are far too firm for side sleepers.

Comfort Scale ratings 7-8: Soft

Serta iComfort mattresses with a Comfort Scale rating of 7 or 8 have a soft feel. These mattresses are ideal for side sleepers, as they are able to contour to the hips and shoulders and provide good pressure relief. Back sleepers who want extra pressure relief may also enjoy these mattresses, but they are too soft for stomach sleepers. Stomach sleepers risk sinking in too far and overextending the arch of the back.

Comfort Scale ratings 9-10: Very Soft

Mattresses with a Comfort Scale rating of 9 or 10 provide maximum pressure relief for side and back sleepers, but are too soft for stomach sleepers. Stomach sleepers risk sinking in too far and overextending the arch of the back
