How to decide how firm your latex mattress should be?

Layers of natural latex.

When choosing latex firmness for your mattress, you have the option to choose between soft, medium and firm. Some factors that can help you choose the best for your body are weight, sleep position, and personal preference.

So which firmness might be the best fit for me!

Soft latex mattress:

Soft latex mattresses typically work well for petit adults. Especially if they sleep on their side and they need pressure point relief. If a mattress is too firm it can cause hip or should pain. A soft mattress will gently cradle those pressure points.

Medium Latex Mattress:

A medium latex mattress is a more neutral density. Obviously, it is neither too soft nor too firm. Both side and back sleeps can rest comfortably on a medium firm mattress, especially if they are more of an average build and don’t have pressure point issues. A medium mattress is usually a good choice for a guest bed.

Firm Latex Mattress:

A firm latex mattress is best for back and stomach sleepers as if offers the most support. Stomach sleepers need a firm mattress to avoid sinking into the latex. If the mattress does not offer enough support, it would cause a stomach sleeper’s back to arch.

Choosing your firmness:

Many of the mattresses we carry are customizable and offer latex layers. Examples are the Savvy Rest Serenity, Ergovea Valencia, and OMI Duo. With this type of mattress, the firmer layers should go on the bottom offering support. The softer layer should be on the top to offer comfort. These types of mattresses are a perfect fit, especially if you and your partner have different firmness preferences. The customizability of the mattress allows each person to get exactly what they want. Neither person has too compromise their comfort.
