Extra Firm Mattress
Extra Firm Mattresses typically have the least amount of comfort foams and padding layers, making them the hardest mattresses available with the least amount of “give” on the surface. These beds are commonly referred to as “non-pillow top” mattresses and are the least susceptible to body impressions. Often times, sleepers will add mattress toppers or overlays to create a softer sleep surface, thus minimizing the “board like” feel.
Extra Firm Mattresses are typically recommended for Stomach Sleepers.
Firm mattresses are non-pillow tops and are very similar to Extra Firm models except that they contain a larger percentage of cushioning; meaning the Firm Mattress contains more padding than the Extra Firm Mattress. This provides sleepers a hard surface with solid support underneath.
Firm Mattresses are typically recommended for Stomach and Back Sleepers.
Luxury Firm Mattress
Luxury Firm mattresses are very similar to a firm mattress with a little extra padding to provide pressure relief. The luxury firm mattress contours to your body while still maintaining very firm support. Luxury Firm could also be defined as “Cushion Firm”.
Luxury Firm Mattresses are typically recommended for Stomach and Back Sleepers.
Plush Mattresses are best defined as medium comfort and a “compromise” between partners with different sleeping styles. Plush Mattresses have more padding and comfort materials than a Firm Mattress. They are designed to provide a happy medium between firms and pillow tops. They may be similar in feel to some pillow tops but the extra layers of padding are less visible because they are built into the surface instead of layered over the finished surface. Plush Mattresses come in a variety of options: Plush Firm (medium firm), Ultra Plush (more soft), Deluxe Plush (enhanced materials), Luxury Plush (enhanced materials).
Plush Mattresses are typically recommended for Back and Side Sleepers.
Luxury Firm Pillow Top Mattress
Luxury Firm Pillow Top Mattresses are typically made with extra material to give firm support while still providing pressure relief of a pillow top. In some cases, the Luxury Firm PT has a thicker gauge coil giving it extra stiffness in the support system. Luxury Firm Pillow Top Mattresses are a perfect choice for couples who have different comfort preferences and cannot decide between a firm or a soft mattress.
Luxury Firm Pillow Top Mattresses are typically recommended for Stomach and Back Sleepers.
Pillow Top Mattress
Pillow Top Mattresses are generally the softest and thickest types of mattresses. A pillow top refers to an attached pillow-like “top” which can consist of multiple comfort foams designed to provide a softer feel without diminishing support. Pillow tops usually provide more cushioning than a Firm or Plush Mattress. It is important to understand when the word “firm” and “plush” are associated with the word “pillow top”. In some cases, a “firm pillow top” or “plush firm pillow top” can be firmer or more supportive than a regular “plush” or “ultra plush” mattress even though it is a pillow top. “Plush pillow tops” are typically the softest choices.
Pillow Top Mattresses are typically recommended for Back and Side Sleepers.
Ultra Plush Pillow Top Mattress
Ultra Plush Pillow Top Mattresses are similar to a plush mattress, but with a much thicker upholstery layering making it look and feel more like a pillow top.
Ultra Plush Pillow Top Mattresses are typically recommended for Side Sleepers.
