Firm Mattresses

When buying a mattress the first thing you should consider is what position you tend to sleep in. Do you sleep mostly on your back, your side, or your stomach? Knowing this is a great place to start in the search for your mattress.

If you are somebody who sleeps mainly on our back the best advice and general rule is to buy a firm mattress. Remember though that there is a difference between firm and just plain hard. A firm mattress has enough resistance to keep your spine straight when you are sleeping, whereas a mattress that is too soft will not support your spine enough.

Back sleepers tend to take up a larger mattress sleeping area to lie on than other positions therefore there is less weight per square inch placed on the body.

As long as there is just enough softness to cushion the joints, a firm mattress a excellent choice for individuals who need rest and support.
