All about extra firm mattresses

Extra firm mattresses offer unparalleled support and stability for a night of restorative sleep. Ideal for back and stomach sleepers, they maintain spinal alignment and distribute body weight evenly, reducing pressure points and minimising the risk of back pain. With their high-density fillings and robust construction, extra firm mattresses not only cater to orthopaedic needs but also cater to those who prefer a surface with minimal give. Whether you're looking to improve your sleep quality or seeking a solution for specific sleep-related issues, an extra firm mattress could be the perfect choice, blending comfort with exceptional support.

The Benefits of Extra Firm Mattresses

Extra firm mattresses are not just about the solid feel; they are about providing optimal support for your body throughout the night. Ideal for back and stomach sleepers, these mattresses aid in maintaining a proper posture, reducing back pain, and enhancing overall sleep quality. Discover the myriad benefits an extra firm mattress can offer, especially if you're looking to improve your sleep health.

Understanding Mattress Sizes

Navigating mattress sizes can be a challenge, from the compact small single to the generously proportioned super king. Knowing the dimensions and suitability of each size ensures you find the perfect fit for your room and your sleeping needs. We always recommend getting the biggest bed that will fit in your bedroom, you are going to be spending up to a 8 hours a night in it. Make sure to measure the room and check the access before buying, if there are likely to be access issues an "in a box" or vacuum rolled mattress may be a suitable option.

Types of Mattress Fillings

The filling of an extra firm mattress significantly impacts its feel, durability, and breathability. Common fillings include memory foam, latex, pocket springs, and traditional coil springs, each offering unique benefits. Explore the different types of fillings available and understand how they contribute to the firmness and overall sleep experience.
