Soft mattresses

If you love nothing more than sinking into your bed after a long hard day, then a soft mattress could hold the key to a better night’s sleep.

With cushioned comfort and gentle sleep support, snoozing on a soft mattress can sometimes feel like you’re floating on a cloud, effortlessly cradling you throughout the night. The only problem would be prying yourself away from this luxurious comfort when you need to wake up in the morning!

To find the best soft mattress, you’ll need to measure the dimensions of your current bed. Thankfully, we offer a range of sizes in our collection to ensure everyone can enjoy the sumptuous sink-in satisfaction, from soft single mattresses to soft king mattresses.

Discover soft mattresses at DFS

Are soft mattresses good?

Ours certainly are! Here at DFS we offer a soft mattress for everyone - whether you’re shopping on a budget or looking to invest in a luxury soft mattress for the ultimate night’s sleep. Whether it’s a soft double mattress or soft king size mattress for your bedroom, or maybe a small double soft mattress for a bedroom tight on space - you’ll find plenty to choose from on our website.

Is a soft mattress good for your back?

A soft mattress offers more of a sink-in feel, and is usually recommended for those who sleep on their sides, to avoid putting too much strain on their hips and shoulders. However, if you prefer the feel of a soft mattress, they can still be a great option for those with back pain - just make sure you choose one with the right level of support, like a memory foam or pocket sprung mattress.

Should I buy a soft or firm mattress for lower back pain?

Generally, most sleep experts recommend a medium mattress for those who suffer from back pain - it’s a good middle ground between providing support and alleviating pressure on your spine. That said, everyone sleeps differently and has different needs - which is why we stock a range of mattress firmness levels which all provide great support, so you can find a soft mattress (or a firm mattress) that can help to alleviate your back pain. A great place to start your search is within our memory foam mattress range.

Where can I buy a soft mattress?

You can shop a great selection of soft mattresses right here on the DFS website, but if you’d rather try them out in person, you can visit one of our DFS Bed Centres for more help and advice from our friendly in-store team. Visit our store locator to find your nearest DFS Bed Centre and start shopping for your new soft mattress.
