What is a cushion firm mattress? A cushion firm mattress has the same support of a firm mattress but with a little extra softness. It features cushioning on the sleeping surface.
Pro Tip: A cushion firm mattress is also often referred to as a medium or medium firm mattress, or a luxury firm or luxury cushion firm mattress.
What are the advantages of a cushion firm mattress?
1. Not a pain in the back. A mattress with more cushion (but still adequate firmness) is typically recommended if you’re experiencing back pain on a standard or firm mattress.
2. Light as a feather. If you’re petite or just lighter in weight by nature, you may find cushion firm mattresses better than firm and extra-firm. A firm mattress may not compress enough for you—or sometimes not at all.
3. Side sleepers. A cushion firm mattress is usually ideal if you sleep on your side. It tends to offer more cushion on the shoulders and hips and can also help to better align the spine.
Pro Tip: Sleep on it! We know there are a lot of factors to consider when purchasing your mattress, so before making your final decision, try it out. Many brands offer a trial period—and if you’re not fully satisfied you can either reselect or return.
