Novosbed Mattress Firmness & Feel
Novosbed mattresses come in three levels of firmness: soft, medium, and firm.The variety of firmness should support different weight categories.
- Soft: The soft mattress option rates at approximately 4.5 on the mattress firmness scale. We recommend the soft mattress for lightweight and average weight sleepers who sleep on their sides. Soft mattresses contour around pressure points in the shoulders and hips.
- Medium: The medium mattress has a 6 firmness level out of 10 and is best suited for average weight sleepers. Stomach and back sleepers will find medium firmness to be ideal because it will prevent your hips and pelvis from sinking too deep and throwing your spine out of alignment.
- Firm: The firm mattress option has a firmness level of 7 out of 10, making it preferable for heavy weight sleepers. The extra firmness is necessary for back and stomach sleepers who need additional support to avoid sinking into the mattress and throwing their spine out of alignment.
Is the Novosbed Mattress Good For Couples?
The transition zone and support zone of the Novosbed make is a good mattress for couples who need limited motion transfer throughout their bed. The transition layer isolates motion between partners and the support layer provides even distribution of weight, while increasing edge support to maximize space on the mattress for sleeping.
|✅ The firm and medium options give the balance and support your body needs to promote spinal alignment.
|✅ Firm mattress minimizes sink-in, promoting spinal alignment.
|✅Soft option is designed for contouring and plushness, making it ideal for side sleepers.
❌The soft option has a touch of added firmness, making it less supportive than other soft mattresses.
|✅ Motion isolation means you won’t disturb others in the bed when you shift positions.
Back Sleepers: The best mattresses for back sleepers are typically firm enough to ensure pressure is evenly spread across pressure points as they sleep. This means that back sleepers will do ok with the medium and firm options from Novosbed, but the medium firmness will give you the right amount of support and softness to keep your spine aligned.
Stomach Sleepers: Stomach sleepers are similar to back sleepers, but require additional support for their necks because they keep their heads to the side while they sleep. Novosbed medium and firm mattress options are ideal for stomach sleepers because keep your hips and body on top of the mattress, without your body from sinking into the mattress.
Side Sleepers: Side sleepers require mattresses with a soft surface to cradle the pressure points at their hips and shoulders. The soft option for Novosbed delivers the support your body needs when you rest on either side.
Combination Sleepers: The best mattress for combination sleepers allow them to shift their body positions throughout the night, and remain comfortable in soft, medium or firm mattresses. Novosbed mattresses significantly reduce motion transfer because of the high-density foam, so if you share a bed, you don’t have to worry about shifting disrupting the other sleeper.
