If you have already had several mattresses or have occasionally slept on other beds during holidays, you will get a better idea of what mattress hardness you prefer. Some people are very clear about 'I like a firm mattress', while for other people it is a lot more difficult to choose. The combination lies in your own desire for certain comfort, the support your body needs and any physical complaints. We will help you!
You can find all our firm mattresses here
We give you hardness advice for your Ubed mattress based on your weight, height and sleeping position. If you choose a double mattress, you can choose your own hardness per side. Are you looking for a firm mattress? That is of course possible! We even have the option for an extra firm mattress. Discover our options below.
When to choose a firm mattress?
Choosing a firmer mattress depends on several factors. We list them for you here:
Combination of weight and height: it is always about the ratio of your weight and height. Someone weighing 80 kilos and 2 meters tall needs a less firm mattress than someone of the same weight who is, for example, 30 centimeters shorter. Enter the details on our mattress page and see what we recommend.
- Sleeping position: side sleepers generally benefit from a soft to medium mattress, back sleepers a medium to firm mattress and stomach sleepers a firm mattress.
- Any physical complaints: do you already suffer from, for example, your joints, shoulders or hips? Then it may be that a harder mattress will not do you any good at all. In this case, be sure to contact us for personal advice!
- Personal preference: of course you have to like the mattress! So you know that you don't like firm mattresses? Then choose a medium variant.
What are the advantages of a firm mattress?
Provides firm support
If the combination of your weight, height and sleeping position indicates that it is better to choose a firm variant and you prefer harder mattresses, then this is the best option.
Optimal for stomach sleepers
When you sleep on your stomach, you need firmer support to prevent you from sinking too far into the mattress and causing your back to 'curve'. Do you prefer softer? Then choose the medium variant.
Can help with lower back pain
If you sleep on a soft or medium mattress and suffer from lower back pain, a harder mattress may offer the solution. It ensures that your hips sink less into the mattress and your back is better corrected.
Frequently Asked Questions
Here you will find answers to the most frequently asked questions about firm mattresses. Knowing more? Then get in touch with us!
Is a firm mattress good for your back?
For back sleepers, we recommend a mattress with a medium to firm firmness. When you sleep on your back, the mattress must provide sufficient support for the lower back and maintain the natural curvature of the spine. If you purchase a mattress that is too soft, your back may sag due to insufficient support, while a mattress that is too firm can create pressure points. If you already have back problems, a mattress with a medium firmness is generally the best combination of comfort and support. Please contact us if you are unsure about the best hardness!
What is the best firm mattress?
The best firm mattress is the mattress that supports you best based on your weight, height and sleeping position. At Ubed we take all of these factors into consideration before we advise you on the most suitable hardness. We also recommend that you contact us if you have any physical complaints, as personal advice is always nice to receive.
Can you get used to a firm mattress?
You can get used to a firm mattress, provided the mattress supports your weight, height and sleeping position correctly. For example, if you sleep on your side a lot and are relatively small and weigh little, there is a good chance that your shoulder does not sink into the mattress enough. Over time you will not get used to the mattress, but you will sooner develop complaints. Therefore, use our calculation tool on the mattress page or contact us for personal advice
