Cushion Firm Mattresses

    When it comes to mattresses, you probably already understand the difference between firm and plush: one offers solid support while the other is cushy and cloud-like. Those aren’t the only options available when you’re shopping for a new mattress. Many sleepers find the right balance of comfort and support with cushion firm mattresses, which combine the best elements of both firm and plush into one mattress.

    Macy’s carries cushion firm mattresses in gel memory foam, innerspring and bed-in-a-box constructions, so you’ll find plenty of choices to suit your sleep position and budget. Pillow top options are available, too. Below, we’ve answered some frequently asked questions about cushion firm mattresses to help determine if they’re suitable for your needs.

    What Is A Cushion Firm Mattress?

    Cushion firm feels similar to a firm mattress in the sense that it has plenty of structured support, but offers an added layer of comfy cushioning on top. This extra layer can be made of a variety of materials ranging from cotton to latex foam. It’s sewn onto the top of the mattress and cannot be taken off (unlike a mattress topper, which can be removed for cleaning).

    Is It The Same As A Medium Firm Mattress?

    Kind of. Without going into the nitty-gritty, medium-firm and cushion firm mattresses are both mid-points on the firm-to-plush spectrum. Most sleepers choose mattresses somewhere in that firmness range, so there are a variety of styles and construction types to choose from. You can expect that any mattress labeled cushion firm or medium-firm will give you good support plus a little bit of additional softness for comfort.

    Does It Matter What Type Of Sleeper I Am?

    Cushion firm is especially beneficial for back sleepers since it prevents deep sinking. For a back sleeper, too much sinking can exacerbate misalignment and cause discomfort.

    Which Brands Make Them?

    We offer specifically labeled cushion firm mattresses from trusted brands like Sealy, Hotel Collection, Created for Macy’s, Primo International, King Koil and Corsicana.
