Mattress Firmness Selection Guide
Is it important to consider what mattress firmness is best for you? Absolutely, yes! To some extent, mattress firmness influences the cushioning and pressure relief performance of a mattress. The different firmness scales provide a wide variety of sleep comfort and accommodate individual needs. However, sometimes people confuse it with the concept of SUPPORT. Here we try to make a distinction between them and list the basic characteristics of each firmness scale & some things to consider when choosing the right firmness. We hope this will be helpful to you.
What’s Mattress Firmness (vs. Support)?
Typically, the firmness is used to describe the feeling of a mattress that you lay on, which is highly subjective and might be slightly different from person to person. Distinctively, support can be defined as the mattress’s ability to keep your spine aligned, which is relatively objective and isn’t the same as firmness. Plus, firmness is directly associated with the comfort layer at the top of a mattress, while support is more related to the base layer.
Novilla Mattress Firmness Scale
Due to its own subjectivity, the methods used by many manufacturers to measure mattress firmness may vary. But when describing firmness, we will often use a 1-10 scale to help consumers understand it. The lowest number means the softest level, and the highest end, the firmest. And for reference, below is Novilla mattress firmness scale.
|10||Extra firm||beds have virtually no perceptible sinkage and no conforming.|
|9||Firm||beds provide minimal sinkage and conforming.|
|8||Slightly firm||Slightly firm beds still conform comparatively but sink less.|
|6-7||Medium firm||beds conform moderately, and do not sink too much.|
|4-5||Medium soft||beds conform fairly closely and just sink some.|
|2-3||Soft||beds conform and sink considerably.|
|1||Extra Soft||beds closely conform to your body and sink significantly.|
