About Soft Mattresses

When most people think about mattresses, one of the first word associations they may come up with is "soft." A softer mattress isn't always better or more comfortable though, especially if you're a back or stomach sleeper. Soft mattresses are ideal for side sleepers, offering the cushioning and pressure relief needed to contour comfortably to the hips and shoulders. Some back sleepers may also prefer a soft mattress, but oftentimes a medium or even hard mattress will provide better comfort and support to those who sleep on their back. Stomach sleepers are generally encouraged not to use a soft mattress, as the excessive padding and contouring can cause you to sink in and arch your back when lying on your stomach, which can lead to lower back issues. But if you are a side or back sleeper who enjoys a soft mattress, we have the largest variety of the best soft mattresses on the market.

Soft mattresses generally have Comfort Scale ratings of 7 and up, and work best for side sleepers and back sleepers who want a high-degree of contouring or pressure relief. Pillow top and euro top mattresses often fall into the "soft mattress" category, though that isn't always the case. Even among the models in the soft range, mattress comfort will vary from model to model depending on the materials used to achieve that level of softness. Memory foam, latex, hybrid, and even innerspring models can be designed for higher Comfort Scale ratings, so deciding between a soft, medium, or hard mattress is only one of the first steps when choosing your perfect mattress.
