The feel of a mattress is subjective, based on your individual physical factors and previous experiences.
Firmness, materials, and construction all contribute to the overall feel of a mattress. So, which one is right for you?
The Elite Hybrid, Star Hybrid (formerly Bear Hybrid), Pro Hybrid, and Bear Original have a firmness rating ranging from roughly 5 and 7.5 (based on a 1 to 10 scale with 10 being the firmest) that is considered a soft, medium, and medium-firm feel.
If you find that your Bear mattress is not as plush as you would like, there are several ways to make it feel softer and more comfortable:
- Use a mattress topper: Adding a plush mattress topper can provide an extra layer of cushioning and comfort to the mattress. We recommend adding the Pro Mattress Topper, our plushest layer of memory foam, which is 3 inches of cooling gel foam that helps provide exceptional pressure point relief with medium level support, ideal for side and combination sleepers.
- Change the bed sheets: Soft, high-thread-count sheets can make the mattress feel softer and more comfortable. Consider switching to sheets made of materials such as cotton, silk, or bamboo.
- Add a plush comforter: Using a soft and fluffy comforter can make a big difference in the overall comfort of your bed. Look for a comforter made of materials such as down feathers, down alternative, or synthetic materials.
- Use a mattress pad: A mattress pad can provide additional cushioning and softness to the mattress. Look for a pad made of materials such as memory foam, polyester, or cotton.
If you're still not satisfied with the comfort of your mattress feel free to email our friendly support team at firstname.lastname@example.org for more help.
