What is a medium mattress?

A medium mattress (also known as a medium firm mattress) is a great middle ground when it comes to mattress firmness. A medium mattress will provide a good level of support but still deliver that sink-in soft comfort feeling. If you and your partner have different sleep needs, or you are purchasing a mattress for a guest room, a medium mattress is a great option that will usually keep everyone comfortable.

What types of medium mattresses can I buy?

Medium mattresses are one of the most popular types of mattresses, and as such there is a huge variety of options. You can opt for ultimate support with a memory foam medium mattress; great airflow and movement isolation with a pocket sprung medium mattress; or the best of both worlds with a hybrid medium firm mattress. If you’re on a budget, we also have a selection of open coil, gel and foam medium firm mattresses. Of course, all these types are available across the standard mattress sizes, so whether you are looking for a single medium firm mattress, double medium mattress, king size medium mattress or even a super king size medium firm mattress, we’ve got you covered.

Which is the best medium mattress?

Ultimately, it depends on your preference and budget! The best types of medium mattresses tend to be memory foam, pocket sprung and hybrid mattresses, and generally the more you spend, the better quality the materials and technology inside will be - whether that be more pocket springs, more natural materials, or high-tech gels and foams. Here at DFS, as well as our own ranges of medium mattresses, we stock a selection of the UK’s best medium firm mattress brands, including Silentnight, Sleepeezee, Harrison Spinks and Sealy.

Is a medium firm mattress good for back pain?

Generally, a firmer mattress is better for providing the level of support needed for alleviating back pain, but if a firm mattress feels too hard for you - a medium firm mattress is a great option. A firm or medium mattress will ensure your bones are taking more of the pressure while you sleep, alleviating stress on muscles and arteries, helping to soothe muscle strain and improve circulation.
