What To Do When Your Mattress Is Too Firm

What To Do When Your Mattress Is Too Firm

A newer mattress is often firmer than you’d like, but don’t fret you don’t have to buy a new one already. To put it simply, a newer bed normally just needs some time to be broken in, a few weeks of consistent usage should adjust it to you and your body perfectly. Though if this doesn’t work and you’d still rather avoid investing in a brand-new mattress, there’re always mattress toppers. Mattress toppers provide a layer of comfort that can balance any overly-firm mattress.

Plenty of mattresses come with some form of care guide, some of which may detail flipping your mattress over at varying intervals, this keeps the mattress comfortable whilst aiding in extending it’s lifespan. It also evenly distributes the mattress’ comfort fillings, so it maintains the ideal level of firmness for longer. Your bed frame can also impact the feeling of your mattress, solid basings or slats (being a series of connected beams along the base of a bed frame), are often designed to offer more support via added pressure. Opting into a bed-frame with more sprung-slats could soften the feeling of the mattress by offering more cushioned support alongside moving with you when you turn over in your sleep.

Of course if none of this works, it may be time to bite the bullet and invest in a softer mattress all together.
