Comfort Levels



A Level 10 Extra Firm Mattress will generally have compressed padded foams on top and below the padded foams a very pressure resistant support base, comprised of a strong coil unit or blocks of dense rigid support foam. This illustration shows very little give and is the hardest mattress you can sleep on. Think of it has a floor with shock absorbing springs with a light foam top.



A Level 20 Firm Mattress will generally have a less compressed foam padded layer, more conformability and about 10% more cushion than an extra firm mattress. The coil or support foam base will generally be just as strong as an extra firm base with increased give in the padded layers and very little give in the base support system. The illustration shows very little give and is the second hardest mattress you can sleep on.



A Level 30 Medium Firm or Luxury Mattress will generally have a less compressed foam padded layer, more conformability and about 10% more cushion than a firm mattress. The coil or support foam base will generally be just as strong as an extra firm base with increased give in the padded layers and very little give in the base support system. The illustration shows very little give and is the third hardest mattress you can sleep on.



A Level 40 Plush Firm Mattress will generally have an increased height of layers of padded foam, more conformability and about 30% more cushion than a firm mattress. The coil or support foam base will generally be just as strong as an extra firm base with increased give in the padded layers and very little give in the base support system. The illustration shows very little give in the foam support layer with increased give in the top padded layers. One of the more popular choices for a back and stomach sleeper and a great compromise for a couple where one partner prefers a firm mattress and the other partner prefers prefers a medium cushy feel. The rigid support layer should provide enough support to the partner that prefers a mattress with a firm base.



A Level 50 Plush Mattress will generally have an increased height of layers of padded foam, more conformability and about 30% more cushion than a firm mattress. The coil or support foam base will have more give and conformability than the plush firm category giving the customer an increased combined softer feel than a mattress with a firm base. The illustration shows increased give in the foam support layer with increased give in the top padded layers as well. One of the more popular choices for a back and side sleeper and a great compromise for a couple where one partner prefers a medium firm mattress and the other partner prefers prefers a medium cushy feel. In addition we have found that the give in a mattress with a plush support base helps releave the pressure on womens hips who sleep on their side.



A Level 60 Super Plush Firm Mattress will generally have more layers of padded foam, more conformability and about 30% more cushion than a typical plush mattress. The coil or support foam base will generally be just as strong as an extra firm base with increased give in the padded layers and very little give in the base support system. The illustration shows very little give in the foam support layer with increased give in the top padded layers. One of the more popular choices for a back sleeper that may also work just fine for a side sleeper as well. It is a great compromise for a couple where one partner prefers a plush firm mattress and the other partner prefers prefers a greater soft feel.



A Level 70 Super Plush Mattress will have an increased height of layers of padded foam, more conformability and about 30% more cushion than a Plush mattress. The coil or support foam base will generally have more give and conformability giving the customer an increased combined softer feel than a mattress with a firm base. The illustration shows increased give in the foam support layer with increased give in the top padded layers as well. One of the more popular choices for a back and side sleeper and a great compromise for a couple where one partner prefers a plush mattress and the other partner prefers and even softer feel. In addition we have found that the give in a mattress with a plush support base helps releave the pressure on womens hips who sleep on their side.



A Level 80 Ultra Soft Mattress will be the softest mattress of all...Very few mattresses in our store will have this level. A rule of thumb for a super soft mattress would be for mainly back and side sleepers. Our experience tells us a super soft mattress would be a poor choice for a stomach sleeper as it may increase the arch in your back while sleeping leaving the customer with a stiff back in the morning. However this may be great for a customer that has poor circulation resulting in severe pressure points resulting in decreased blood circulation. This mattress has the lowest bottom out level. What do we mean by bottoming out. Well imagine you had a 2 inch sponge and you put it on the floor and you rested your knee on it. Yes it would feel more comfortable to your knee than resting your knee on the floor surface directly but there would still be some discomfort and you would still feel the base of the floor as the spong compresses from your weight. Now take that same sponge and put another 5 inch sponge on it and rest your knee again. The pressure will be relieved and you will not have the feeling of having your knee pressing on the floor as the increased cushion will displace your weight better.
