For those that have been in the market for a new mattress, you have probably come across the terms Medium, Firm and Plush.
When shopping for a mattress it is important to understand the difference between these three as a comfort rating.
The term ‘plush’ has been broadly used and is commonly considered to mean a mattress surface that is soft. You might have heard of ‘ultra-plush’ as well, which means it is extra soft. We rate our beds on a scale from 2 to 8 where 2 is the firmest and 8 is the softest.
There is a bit more to the different ways of referring to softness, and this article will help you determine if our softest beds will be the ultimate choice of comfort and luxury for you.
These mattresses contain support layers that are strong enough to support your body, without the rigid feeling of a firm mattress, and soft enough to conform to your body’s shape. All of the plush and ultra-plush mattresses available at Beds R Us are similar to pillow-top mattresses, but better. They are designed with comfort layers using Australian-made foams and technology.
Unlike the pillow-top mattresses of other manufacturers, our mattresses have comfort layers that will sit flat to the edge. This prevents an enveloping sensation and heat issues you might get from traditional pillow-top mattresses, and reduces the feeling of being about to roll out of the bed.
The term ‘pillow-top’ is an older form of bed design that is superseded by the luxurious comfort layers included in the best Sleepyhead and SleepMaker mattresses. If you’ve ever put up with a bad bed you may have resorted to purchasing a mattress topper to improve the comfort. Buying a topper will only provide temporary alleviation of your discomfort. It’s much better to invest in a good mattress, and if you’re seeking a pillow-top, look no further than the best Beds R Us ranges including Slumber, Comfort for You, Miracoil, Swisstek, Cocoon and others.
Of these only the Slumber is made with the traditional pillow-top mattress construction. The rest contain comfort layers inside the wall of the mattress and are a better technology than pillow-top mattresses. You may like to consider one of our plush (6-7) or ultra-plush (8) beds by trying it in-store. In Australia’s varying climate it is important to get the balance right in your chosen mattress. Our best ranges offer comfort, support for your back and reduce the feeling of being overheated by your mattress.
Who does a plush mattress usually suit?
Plush mattresses are great for back and side sleepers as they contour to your body’s curves due to the softer feeling foam implemented within the mattress. Dreamfoam, memory foam and gel-infused latex contour to your body regardless of your sleeping style or position. The extra cushioning may give you pressure relief in your shoulders, hips and arms, while supporting your lower spine.
All Beds R Us plush mattresses are made to feel soft, but have enough strength to allow for even weight dispersion and may assist you with proper spinal alignment. Even some of our firm and medium mattresses include comfort layers that could be described as having a pillow-top. Please use our firmness levels as a guide online or visit a store near you to test our beds and discuss your needs with a Beds R Us sleep specialist.
