Pressure Test Results

We’ve pressure tested the Gratifying Firm mattress with petite, average and large body size people on their sides and back sleeping positions to see what kind of support and comfort you can expect. (Learn how we test)

The Gratifying Firm tested reasonably well considering it’s a very firm mattress. For back sleepers of all sizes, the mattress demonstrated and reported out very good results. The mattress provided good contouring support and distributed the bodyweight nicely over a relatively wide surface (that helps keep excessive pressure points to a minimum).

For side sleepers, the mattress didn’t demonstrate equally good results. Perhaps it’s because the mattress is very firm to begin with, and your weight is concentrated on less of your body’s side, so the pressure readings were increased. The average and petite size people still rated ‘Good’, but the larger, heavier body size had excess pressure. But keep in mind you may think this is ok for you - if you like a very firm mattress.

Conclusion

The Conform Gratifying mattress is a bed we generally recommend, but with some important qualifications.

The mattress is made with high-quality materials like extra cooling foams and a cooling fabric on top to keep down your body heat. The mattress has a reinforced edge which is somewhat rare in all-foam mattresses. Edge support is common on innerspring mattresses and it’s a popular feature because it’s easier to sit and sleep on the edges of the bed.

When we pressure tested the mattress, it rated well for back sleepers of all sizes. There was good weight distribution that minimized pressure points and also provided good contouring support in the important areas like the lower back. For side sleepers, there was increased pressure that was excessive for the largest body size we test. However, as we mentioned above, this can be due to its being a very firm mattress.

The Gratifying Firm will only appeal to you if you like a very firm bed. It’s cheaper than its sister bed, the softer Wondrous Ultra Plush, and that’s because it has less foam (hence it’s harder). Overall, it’s priced in-between the competitors in the $1,000 range and luxury mattresses costing $2,500, or more. This “in-between” priced mattress represents a relatively good value and might be something you want to consider if you prefer a firm foam mattress and want a quality made bed.
