Mattresses in focus: A look at the best firm mattresses
Our range of firm mattresses have many advantages over a softer mattress; but it all depends on what type of person you are. Theyíre not just for people who have orthopaedic problems, no, one interesting fact about firm mattresses is they are potentially suited for a heavier person.A light person, however, might think a firm mattress is like sleeping on concrete, but for someone of a bigger build, it might be the perfect alternative.
Did you also know that a smaller mattress will be firmer than a double mattress, and this pattern continues all the way up to a super king-size mattress? The tension is relative to how big the bed is, so if you want a firmer mattress, maybe going down a size might help.
But yeah, this is just theory. To get a good idea about firm mattresses, itís always a good idea to have a look at a few. Weíve had a look through our collection and found a couple of Bedstarís best firm mattresses out there. Take a look and hopefully youíll find your dream mattress.
First thing to say about the Breasley Postureform Deluxe is that itís Extra Firm - which is different from a normal firm mattresses becauseÖ itísÖ firmer. Itís filled with reflex foam, which is like memory foam but not as spongy.
The mattress is 14 cm deep and is filled with synthetic fillings - which is great if youíre allergic to feathers or cotton or any other natural material. This mattress is a hypoallergenic mattress. This mattress cannot be turned as all its fillings are on one side.
This mattress also claims to promote good blood circulation and is designed to assist people with back pain. There is evidence to suggest that a firm mattress does assist with back pain as it provides complete support across the whole of your back. The Breasley Postureform would then be suitable for people suffering from back pain.
