Extra firm feeling mattresses are what some customers find to be the most supportive and the most comfortable too. Your shape, weight, sleeping position and personal preference need to be factored in to your final choice. Find your perfect extra firm fit from the TEMPUR® mattress collections.
Customers often tell us they want a firm mattress, but they don’t always know why? Here are some things you might like to consider before you make your final decision.
The supportive nature of a firm mattress helps with spine alignment, especially if you prefer sleeping on your back. A firm mattress is considered better for tummy sleepers because a more supportive stable surface reduces dip of the lower back.
Sleeper frame size and body weight
Generally, a heavier a person will experience quality sleep for longer on a firm mattress than a softer one. There are no fixed industry guidelines, but if a person weighs 65 kg or more, then an extra firm mattress is likely to provide better comfort and support.
This is just as important as the rest of your bed and is often overlooked. If your neck and shoulders are not aligned and comfortable, you may still not achieve restful sleep. Filled with pressure relieving TEMPUR® Material, we offer you a choice of styles ranging from classic rectangular pillows, to ergonomic shaped ones. All are designed to offer optimal head and neck support.
