Most people choose either our soft or medium feeling latex mattress topper when softening a firm mattress. The soft feels nice, cushy, and plush while the medium is reported by many customers to offer the perfect balance of comfort and support. Use a firm latex mattress topper to add more life to a failing mattress. "ILD" is the hardness numbering system for rating the firmness of foam. ILD is the number of pounds it takes to compress a sample of latex one inch. We carry 5 different firmnesses: Soft N25 (11-18 ILD), Medium N28 (24-28 ILD), Firm N31 (30-35 ILD), Extra Firm N36 (39-44 ILD), and Hard N45 (58-64 ILD).
There is a common myth that an extra firm mattress topper is the best for back sleepers. A recent study () reported that a mattress/topper of medium firmness provides the most comfortable sleeping position for back sleepers. It also provides the best pain relief for those with lower back pain.
