This comfort level category has additional layers of padding sewn into the top layer of the mattress for an extra-soft, comfortable feel.
Plush mattresses offer quilting under the surface layer and will offer a softer feel than a firm mattress.
Mattress comfort levels are a huge consideration when shopping for a new bed. However, it is very common for mattress shoppers to confuse mattress comfort and mattress support. Keep in mind that support should be your first consideration, followed by comfort. Once you have the proper support system for your sleep needs, then you can choose the best mattress comfort level for you. Comfort levels help you fall asleep, and support offers the proper body alignment that helps keep you stay asleep throughout the night. There are three categories of mattress comfort levels: pillow top, plush and firm.
There is not an industry standard for any of these three mattress comfort levels. Each category had a range within itself, which is why it is important to test out our patented bedMATCHⓇ sleep diagnostic system to assure you find the proper support and comfort for your specific sleeping needs. This trusted technology uses scientific calculations and your measurements to suggest beds that are targeted to fit your needs and wants.
Once you have the optimal mattress options according to bedMATCHⓇ, you can test out your recommended mattresses yourself at a variety of different comfort levels! Our sleep specialists at every store are there as a resource during your mattress shopping experience to provide guidance, product insight, and answer any questions you may have.
Pillow top mattresses offer more padding than a plush mattress. This comfort level category has additional layers of padding sewn into the top layer of the mattress for an extra-soft, comfortable feel. The extra padding can be made from a multitude of different materials, so while you are in a Mattress Warehouse store, make sure to lie on beds with different materials in the pillow top to see which one suits your comfort preference.
Pillow top mattresses offer a more cushion-like comfort to sleepers, while plush mattresses offer a bit more of a middle ground between comfort and a stiffer supportive feel.
This category of comfort tends to offer a happy medium between a pillow top mattress and a firm mattress. Plush mattresses offer quilting under the surface layer and will offer a softer feel than a firm mattress.
Side and back sleepers should consider this option because it offers a great balance of comfort and support, while also helping to relieve pressure points when sleeping in these positions.
Plush mattresses offer a softer feel while firm mattresses offer a more durable and less giving sleeping surface.
A firm mattress is ideal for sleepers who require uncompromising support throughout the night. These mattresses have a little less give than other types of mattresses and have a more rigid feel.
Back and stomach sleepers should consider this comfort category for its proper support and the slight give.
Firm mattresses offer more rigid support and feel throughout the night, while a pillow top mattress offers a cushion padded comfort level for a very giving sleep surface.
