Comfort Scale and Mattress RatingsOur Mattress Comfort Scale® is based on a standard 10-point scale and is superior to traditional mattress ratings. It is a tool for you to use when deciding which mattress you will find most comfortable.
HARDComfort ScaleSOFT Comfort Scale Rating of 1: The Firmest of Mattresses A mattress with a rating of 1 would give you the feeling of sleeping on your living room's carpeted floor. A rating of 1 does not really exist in bedding today. We have it at the base of our Comfort Scale as a reference point. However, it's possible that advancing bedding technology will allow for this level of firmness. Comfort Scale Rating of 2 to 4: Hard, Like Sleeping on a Carpeted Floor If you have no problem sleeping comfortably on your living room floor, and you don't wake up with aches and pains, then a mattress with a Comfort Scale rating of 2 to 4 would be ideal for you. These mattresses feel hard to very hard.
Comfort Scale Rating of 4 to 6: Mid-Range, a Good Compromise Mattresses in this category are great if you are in between the other comfort ratings or if your partner and you prefer opposite sides of the Comfort Scale. Mattresses in this range make a great "compromise" mattress. If you just don't have a preference, then a Comfort Scale rating of 4.5 to 6.5 is good for you.
Comfort Scale Rating of 7 to 9: Conforming Softness Do you find yourself trying to increase the softness of your current mattress with a down mattress pad? Do you love the way a waterbed feels? If so, then a mattress with a Comfort Scale rating of 7 to 9 would be ideal for you. These beds are very soft. They are usually pillow tops, but some plush beds fall in this category too.
Comfort Scale Rating of 10: Super Soft A mattress with a rating of 10 would give you the feeling of sleeping on a cloud. Obviously, this is impossible. We have it at the top of the Comfort Scale as a reference point.
