MATTRIBUTES

Mattress Firm rates all mattresses on a set of objective criteria that we call Mattributes. They can help you understand which mattress is right for you!

Support

Support

What is it? How much your mattress compresses under the weight of your body
How does it help? Proper support from your mattress can alleviate common sleep issues from stiffness to chronic back pain, as it distributes your weight evenly across the mattress and maintains proper joint and spine alignment. It’s important to find the right support level for your sleeping position. All mattress types are available in a variety of support levels. Firm support is good for back and stomach sleepers, and side and combination sleepers need soft to medium support

Pressure Relief

Pressure Relief

What is it? How your mattress conforms around your sleep position to provide targeted relief
How does it help? Proper pressure relief can alleviate aches, tossing & turning, and improve circulation by reducing pressure points and confirming to your body. Pressure relief is important if you have any sleep issues to make sure that you sleep comfortably through the night. All mattress types can provide pressure relief, and experiencing different beds in person is a great way to find out what works for you

Cooling

Cooling

What is it? How cool the mattress feels to the touch and its ability to provide a cooler sleep environment
How does it help? With cooling technology, your mattress features components and materials that help provide a cool and comfortable night's sleep. Look for this feature if you get too hot during the night. Gel grid, cooling memory foam, and gel-infused memory foam mattresses are great for cooling

Motion Separation

Motion Separation

What is it? How a mattress prevents motion on one side of the bed from impacting a sleeping partner
How does it help? The goal of motion separation is to isolate movement, helping to reduce what you feel (like your partner tossing and turning) back and allowing you to move throughout your sleep cycles uninterrupted. Motion separation is great for partners with different sleeping schedules or styles. Foam mattresses provide excellent motion separation
