Spring Air Breathe Firm Mattress Review

The Spring Air Breathe Firm is one of three Breathe models offered with Nano Shield™ technology which reduces all viruses within the mattress by 97.9% within four hours. For more information on the firm Breathe model, please read our review here:

Comfort Scale Rating

The Spring Air Breathe Firm Mattress has a firm feeling that we rate a 3 on our 10 point Comfort Scale (a 1 is hard, 10 is softest.) This level of comfort typically appeals to only those who prefer a firmer bed with solid back support. Those who like a plusher feeling to their mattress should consider one of the softer Breath models as there are two more to choose from. There is also a medium option. 

Pros & Cons

  • Nano Shield™ reduces viruses in the mattress
  • Fast and easy shipping
  • Cheaper price than comparable models
  • Good motion separation from sleep partners
  • Gel memory foam will help with pressure relief, cooling, and durability
  • Has edge support to prevent roll-off feeling and make it easier to sit on the edge
  • Firm comfort will not appeal to everyone
  • Minimal foam used, less than more luxurious models

The firmest of the three Spring Air Breathe models is the Breathe Firm. This mattress is a good option for those who prefer a firmer feeling bed. The materials that are used in its construction are of the highest-quality available in bedding today.

My favorite feature of the Breathe mattresses from Spring Air is the Nano Fiber Technology. Anti-virus protection technology is a great feature to have in a piece of furniture that is meant to last for ten or more years. Additionally, having the 3-zone support coil system underneath layers on gel memory foam makes for a good back support system and adds good pressure relief on your joints.

My recommendation is that you consider the Spring Air Breathe Firm if you really like a firmer-feeling mattress to sleep on. Otherwise, you can consider the Breathe Medium or Plush if you think something softer would work better for you.
