Tackling the subject of firmness head-on may be challenging. Why? The truth is, people have somewhat varying perceptions of how firm a mattress is. It’s subjective, like any feeling quality, and your choice might vary greatly based on your size, shape, and weight. Fortunately, however, there are certain guidelines and regulations that may help you figure out what level of firmness is best for you and your needs.
This article will explain what “firmness” is, how the mattress market defines “firmness,” and how natural material mattresses can provide balanced firmness for your own preferences and sleeping habits.
You may judge a mattress’ firmness by how it feels when you first lie down on it. Which describes your sleeping style better: sinking deeply into the mattress or floating on top of it? Is there a lot of resistance, or can you feel the materials molding to your shape? Any mattress may be classified as soft, medium firm, or hard by asking a few simple questions.
The mattress business often uses a “firmness scale” with a range of 1–10 to assist buyers understand the level of firmness in their mattresses. If mattresses were graded on a scale from 1 to 10, with 10 being the firmest, the softest mattress in the world would be rated a 1. Most people agree that a 6.5 out of 10 rating means that something is medium-firm.
The effects of using many layers of natural materials with varying qualities and advantages may be rather surprising. The materials have more space to move when, for instance, horsehair is separated into numerous layers and membranes of cotton and wool are put in between. The result is a more adaptable and pleasant support system. Not only do we use many different kinds of natural materials in our beds, but we also use many different sizes for each layer to find the best design for each model.
The bed can breathe thanks to the use of natural materials, making it ideal for rest. Each little strand of curly horse hair acts as a micro spring, supporting our spring systems and promoting airflow.
Our mattresses have been carefully crafted to give the ideal balance of spring and elasticity, allowing for optimal airflow while also relieving pressure points all over the body. To get the most out of the qualities of our natural materials, we based our bed design on qualitative evaluations and mechanical calculations.
By opting for a Pranasleep® bed crafted from real natural materials, you can rest assured that you will enjoy a dry, comfortable night’s sleep on a well-ventilated base with chemical-free materials touching your skin.
