Firm mattresses fall in 3 categories: firm, extra-firm, ultra-firm. The firm mattresses include the Orbit, Neptune Cotton Only and the Single Foam futon mattresses. Usually, these firm mattresses have very little foam, and are cotton only, giving it the firm feeling. The ones with foam use a denser foam that makes the mattress less soft. These mattresses are great for people who like to sleep on something firm and who need the additional support. The extra-firm mattresses include the Simmons Monarch 2 and the Liberty Futon Mattress. Some of these mattresses are created with very dense layers of foam from top to bottom. Finally, the ultra-firm mattresses are for those that love to sleep on the ground. These mattresses are usually not recommended for a futon frame, but more for a platform bed. These are for people who want that firm feeling of a traditional Japanese futon mattress. The high density of the foam makes these mattresses very heavy and harder to move around.
By far the most common mattress sold in the U.S. is the inner-spring. Invented over a hundred years ago, it’s a popular and practical design. The mattress contains a network of coils (springs) that are designed to provide push-pull support. The coils are designed to provide give and cushion when weight is brought on them, but they also have enough spring to resist and provide some support. This give-and-take between cushion and support is the reason that inner-springs have been so popular for so long. An inner-spring is the top mattress which is meant to work with a box spring. A box spring is also a coil system that provides some push-pull support for the inner-spring mattress.
The next component of a mattress set that affects back support is the foundation, or boxspring. The foundation/boxspring absorbs weight for the mattress. It is important to purchase the boxspring designed to match your mattress because manufacturers design both pieces to work together. A mismatched set may adversely affect the longevity of your mattress and the level of support the mattress provides.
