Choosing a Soft, Medium, or Firm Mattress

Posted on

  • Soft: Typically, a soft mattress will fall anywhere between a 3 and 5 out of 10 on the firmness scale, with 10 being the most firm. These mattresses have a significant amount of hug and sinkage, usually in the 1.5-3 inches range. ...
  • Medium: 6-7 out of 10. ...
  • Firm: 7.5-9 out of 10.
  • Do not feel obligated to go with a specific brand. Since it's typically many years between mattress purchases for you, the manufacturing may have changed dramatically within a brand over that period of time. 
  • If you really cannot decide between two levels of firmness, one solution may be to pick the firmer mattress. The reason behind this is that if it is too firm, you can always make it softer by adding a topper layer. By contrast, there is no way to make a softer mattress firmer.
