How do I find the best firm mattress for me?

With so many firm mattress options out there, you’re probably wondering how you might narrow down your search. For ultimate support, we’d recommend a memory foam firm mattress - but if you find yourself getting too hot at night, a pocket sprung firm mattress might be a better choice. For the best of both worlds, you can look for a hybrid firm mattress like those from Sealy, or if you’re on a budget, you could consider our range of gel, foam and open coil mattresses. Stuck on what to choose? Check out our mattress quiz for our suggestions on what mattresses might work best for you, or pop into your local DFS store for a chat with one of our friendly bed experts.

Why choose a firm mattress?

Firm mattresses are often recommended for those who like to sleep on their back. When you sleep on a firmer surface, your bones take most of the pressure, which relieves stress on muscles, arteries and veins, so they can be helpful to relieve muscle strain or help post-exercise recovery. They can also help to improve circulation and oxygen intake while sleeping.

What are the different types of firm mattress?

Firm mattresses are available in a range of sizes and types, so you can find the perfect one for you. Memory foam firm mattresses are popular as they are said to give the best support, but there are plenty of options - including hybrid, gel, foam, open coil and pocket sprung firm mattresses. All sizes are available within our range at DFS, so whether you’re looking for a single firm mattress, a double firm mattress, a firm king size mattress or even a super king firm mattress, you’ll have lots to choose from within our firm mattress range. You can also find a small selection of our firm mattresses categorised as an extra firm mattress for ultimate support.

What is an orthopaedic mattress?

An orthopaedic mattress is a type of mattress that has been designed to provide the very best support to your spine and joints. Soft, medium and firm orthopaedic mattresses often combine the latest in mattress technology with extensive scientific research and testing to create the most supportive mattresses - and we’re proud to stock award-winning Sealy orthopaedic mattresses, renowned as some of the very best.
