When you make the decision to purchase a new mattress, there are many factors to look out for. One of the most important of these factors being the comfort level. We all want our beds to be as comfy as possible but there are different levels of firmness that will affect sleepers in different ways. Since mattresses come in all shapes and sizes, it is important to make sure to find the right fit for your body.

The feeling of softness or firmness of a mattress is due primarily to the build of the comfort layer and its thickness. This layer is the top-most part of the mattress and the part that will conform to the shape of your body. Depending on which type of mattress you are looking at, there can be one or multiple layers of material.
Whether you need a soft or firm mattress will depend completely on your body and sleeping habits. When you are able to sleep on a mattress with the proper firmness you will see an improvement in your overall sleep. This improvement occurs from support and alleviation of pressure points throughout your body.
When your bed is too firm, or not firm enough, sleeping can lead to joint discomfort, back and shoulder pain, and irritate pressure points. Naturally, having a mattress with the right level of comfort is worth the extra research.
Below, we have broken down the levels of comfort so that you are able to have a better idea of which mattress will suit your needs:Firm
A harder surface that still conforms to body shape but does not allow for sinking. If you are someone who wakes up with back pain from softer surfaces, then this may be the perfect option for you.Medium-Firm
A low conforming surface with very little sinking. This level would be perfect for those who prefer a firmer surface but who are not comfortable with the extent of firmness is the previous level.Medium
A more even balance of firmness and conforming with a slight amount of sinking. This level is the most popular, around 80% of people would consider this their most comfortable option. It provides enough support for any sleeping positions.Medium-Soft
A more plush feeling surface that conforms to your body yet still includes minimal sinking. This would be for anyone who prefers a softer feel without all sinking created in the soft level.Soft
A very plush surface that completely conforms to your body and creates deeper sinking. These mattresses are typically great for people who sleep on their sides but not as much those who sleep on their backs or stomachs.
