FAQ about mattresses

What is the best mattress?

With so many mattresses available on the market, it can be difficult to know where to start when shopping for a new mattress. The ‘best’ is one that suits your own needs and is within your budget. Our bed experts will be able to guide you through a range of questions to help you decide what it is you are looking for then help you find the best mattress for you at the greatest possible price.

Which mattress is right for me?

Just as we are all individual, so too are our sleep needs. Choosing the right mattress is dependent on many factors and is a personal choice. The ideal way to discover your preferred choice is to lie on each one in store. However, if this is not possible, consider the following when making your choice: your sleeping position, body type, others sleeping in the bed with you and personal preferences (soft, medium firm feel). Give our team a call on 01928 242 829 for more, free independent advice.

What type of mattress should I get if I sleep on my side?

Side sleepers should always look for mattresses that respond to the curves in their body and offer support and pressure point relief, notably for the ears, shoulders, and hips. Although side sleepers can opt for a variety of mattress types and fillings, providing they offer adequate support and cushioning, you might prefer a medium comfort grade. Side sleepers below 14 stone can opt for softer options, while side sleepers over fourteen stone should consider a medium firm comfort. The heavier you are, the firmer your mattress should be to ensure it offers you the support you need.

What type of mattress should I get if I sleep on my back?

Medium to very firm mattresses make an ideal choice for back sleepers as they supply the spine alignment and support needed to prevent back problems. Pressure points for back sleepers include the shoulders, bottom, heels and most importantly, the spine. Sleepers weighing more than fourteen stone should opt for a firm or very firm mattress to prevent their spine sinking into the mattress adding extra pressure and causing back problems. Traditional spring, pocket spring, memory foam and orthopaedic mattresses are all popular choices for back sleepers.

What type of mattress should I get if I sleep on my stomach/front?

Front/stomach sleepers often find medium, medium firm, or firm mattresses supply the level of support needed to keep the natural alignment of their spine. Pressure points for front sleepers are typically the rib cage, knees, and thighs, however, these points require less support and cushioning so the focus for front sleepers is the spine. Too soft a mattress can result in the torso sinking into the mattress resulting in an arched spine, aches, and pains. Too firm a mattress will prevent your spine from falling into its natural curve, again causing aches and pains. Popular mattress choices for front sleepers include pocket spring mattresses, memory foam mattresses and mattresses made up of different fillings (combination and hybrid mattresses).

What type of mattress is best for a bad back?

There is a wide range of mattresses aimed at promoting spinal alignment and relieving back pain. People often associate back pain with needing a firm mattress, this is not always the case as a mattress that is too firm will not supply the support your spine needs. A firmer mattress is better for sleepers who weigh sixteen stones or more while sleepers suffering from back pain and weighing ten stones or below, typically prefer a softer, supportive mattress. Options include orthopaedic mattresses, spring based/hybrid mattresses, latex filled and memory foam. What works well for one person with back pain might not be the best solution for another. Our bed experts can help you find a mattress that suits you best and alleviates your back pain. Email them today at

How firm or soft do I need my mattress?

Tension feel is determined by the mattress’s construction and materials while comfort is subjective.

  • Firm mattresses offer great support but are not so good at offering pressure relief. They are typically cooler than soft mattresses and often appeal to stomach sleepers.
  • Medium mattresses are often referred to as offering universal comfort, supplying the perfect balance between soft and firm. They are an excellent choice for those suffering from back pain as they supply enough compression to contour to the body while preventing the spine from sinking, helping to keep a neutral position.
  • Soft mattresses can be pressure relieving but usually lack support for back and front sleepers. Ideal for side sleepers and those who like to sink into their mattress, however, they are not able to manage heavier weights.

All tensions are clearly shown on our mattresses at Land of Beds and our bed experts are on hand to guide you further.

Tension grading at Land of Beds:

  • 1 = Soft – Good for side sleepers. The softest level of support.
  • 2 = Soft medium – Good for side sleepers who require a little more support.
  • 3 =Medium – Good all rounder for front, side or back sleepers.
  • 4 = Medium firm – Good for people who change sleeping position.
  • 5 = Firm – Good for people who sleep on their front or back.
  • 6 = Extra firm – The firmest level of support. Also known as orthopaedic.
