The positive point: Suitable for small and very light people, a light person will only "use" the first few centimetres of a normal mattress, while a very soft mattress will provide ideal comfort.
The negative point: A soft mattress will put a heavy strain on a normal weight person's spine, making it difficult to turn around, the sleeper often wakes up with aches and pains.
The positive point: Suitable for people of 100kg or more, it will suit you if you are a Rugby Pillar, or simply strong, these mattresses are made for you.
The negative point: The problem is that a mattress classified as Firm will be quite tiring for a person of normal build, as it will cause pressure points, especially on the shoulders and pelvis, which create a feeling of fatigue, and sometimes back pain.
These mattresses offer an initial feeling of soft comfort, but become firm as you sink in.
