By Comfort Level

There are a variety of comfort levels of mattresses, and it is important to consider the differences when shopping. Here are some details on the differences.

Extra Firm

(Futon Feel) If you can camp on the ground or the living room floor without waking up stiff and sore, this could very well be your best bet. These mattresses are built with a heavier gauge coil and a tighter quilting pattern to give them a “hard” feel.


Firm mattresses are stiff, resistant, and offer less quilting than other comfort levels, making firm mattresses ideal for the back sleeper. Whether or not a firm mattress is comfortable depends solely on the user's preference. For back pain sufferers, it is generally recommended to sleep on medium to firmer mattress.

Cushion Firm

Cushion firm mattresses lie somewhere between hard and soft, providing the great support of a firm mattress with a little extra padding. For those who like sleeping on a hard surface with some added comfort, cushion firm mattresses are the right choice.


Plush mattresses offer support similar to a firm mattress but are more comfortable and conforming to the body. Plush mattresses feature a built in soft top, offering more comfort and suppleness than a typical mattress. Plush surfaces provide more elasticity and spring with a softer surface, yet remain supportive.

Pillow Top

Pillow top mattresses are available in three different options: conventional, super and euro. Pillow top mattresses provide added comfort, offering a luxurious, plush sleeping surface. Depending on the softness and height desired, you can choose from the three various pillow top options. The pillow top mattress adds height and plushness, but does not deter from the support provided by the mattress. The thick layers added in pillow top mattresses are ideal for anyone searching for an ultra soft and supple sleep surface.
