Get ready to sleep like a baby because May is the month dedicated to getting better sleep! And what better time to tackle the age-old dilemma of soft versus firm mattresses?
According to the Better Sleep Council, a whopping 51% of Americans prefer a firm or very firm mattress, while the remaining 49% are all about the soft and cushy feel. That means that the average couple has a 50-50 chance of agreeing on a mattress preference. Talk about a challenge!
But here’s the thing, when we talk about firm and soft mattresses, we’re really referring to the top layer’s feel of the bed, not the actual support level. Regardless of which side of the fence you fall on, the most important factor to consider is the mattress’s ability to maintain your spine’s natural curve and align with your hips, neck, and head without causing painful pressure points.
So, if you want to wake up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated every morning, it’s essential to choose the right mattress for your body. Whether you prefer a firm or soft mattress, make sure it supports your spine and provides the comfort you need for a good night’s sleep.
