Plush and cushiony yet not too soft – and supportive and durable yet not too firm – a medium mattress is ideal for those who want a cool balance between cushiness and support.
What is a Medium Firm Mattress?
Generally, a medium mattress is in between a typical ‘plush’ mattress and a typical ‘firm’ mattress. Often made with dense yet malleable materials, like memory foam or orthopedic foam (or both), ‘plump,’ ‘snug’ and ‘dreamy’ are the perfect words to describe the harmony that is the medium mattress.
How Do I Choose a Medium Mattress?
Medium mattresses come with features designed specifically to help you fall (and stay) into your most heavenly sleep.
When choosing a medium mattress, look for qualities like cooling and warming technology (which allows the mattress to adjust to your body temperature), type of foam (such as orthopedic, gel and/or memory) and type of surface (such as tight or pillow top).
Is a Medium Mattress Right for Me?
The short answer is yes – chances are high that a medium mattress is right for you! Because a medium mattress combines the best of both plush and firm mattresses, they are generally recommended for every type of sleeper. Side sleepers and back sleepers can gain from the contouring effect of the plush cushioning and the aligning effect of the dense foam. Stomach sleepers can also find comfort in the medium firmness level, which is soft enough to not press too much against the ribcage and supportive enough to align the spine.
