Why Choose a Medium Mattress?
Can’t decide between plush and firm? Split the difference with a medium mattress! Combining the supportive technologies of a firm comfort level with the gentle contouring of a plush comfort level, medium mattresses are designed for virtually all types of sleepers.

|Medium hybrid w/pillow top||Medium-firm core with a plush surface layer||Side, back|

Choosing the best medium mattress for you will depend on exactly how much firmness or plushness you prefer. A medium foam mattress will lean plusher, a medium innerspring mattress will lean firmer – and a medium hybrid mattress will keep all-around balance with a true medium feel.
