Mattress Firmness Guide

What is Mattress Firmness?

Every mattress, regardless of the build type, has a slightly different firmness feel.  Although firmness ratings are subjective to each individual people.  There is a standardized rating scale that’s commonly used in the mattress industry to best describe the firmness.

This 1 to 10 scale allows you to generalize the mattresses that will have the feel you desire.

1 represents the softest firmness feel. 

Inversely, 10 represents the firmest feel.
