When it comes to sleeping, different people have different preferences. Some people like to sleep on their sides, some like to sleep on their stomach. Similarly some people prefer a soft mattress, while others prefer firmer mattress. There is no one perfect mattress for everyone, it all just comes down to preferences.

Medium firm mattresses are acceptable to the largest percentage of the general population but, there are many people who find these mattresses a little uncomfortable. For all these people, switching to a softer mattress is the key to a restful night’s sleep. But, you cannot just get a mattress because it’s soft, right? There are a lot of things to be kept in mind before getting a new mattress. If the mattress turns out to be too soft, you will sink too far into it disturbing your spine alignment. Similarly, if it turns out to be too firm, then it will cause discomfort to the sleeper. So, if you are someone who likes softer mattress but are confused as to which one you should get, then this guide is just perfect for you as we list our top picks for Soft mattresses.
