5 Best Firm Mattresses of 2024: Expert Tested and Reviewed


The Saatva Classic Mattress combines two layers of innerspring coils with the pressure relief of a quilted Euro pillow top. You have your choice of three firmness levels, with the two firmer options being Luxury Firm, which Saatva considers a 5 to 7 on the mattress firmness scale of 1 to 10 (the firmest is 10), and Firm, which Saatva considers an 8. When we tried the Saatva mattress in our 360 Lab, we found it does feel like a 7 to an 8 on the scale. Saatva says the Firm version is best for sleepers who want an extra-firm mattress, stomach sleepers, back sleepers, and larger individuals. (However, keep in mind side sleepers may find this mattress much too firm on the hips and shoulders to feel comfortable.) A queen-size Saatva Classic is designed to accommodate up to 300 pounds on each side of the bed.
