5 Best Firm Mattress Consumer Reports 2019 – Top Rated

One more year, the Organization of Consumers and Users (OCU) has published its ranking of the best mattresses according to the OCU 2018. In the analysis, 30 mattresses of different resting brands and different materials in their core and padding have been studied.

Among the main conclusions of the study is how the sale of mattresses online is gaining weight, thanks mainly to the possibility of testing at home for a period of time greater than 14 days imposed by the Consumer Law. In the case of Colchones.es, this term is raised to 30 days, after this time if you are not satisfied you can return it. But EYE, not all online stores offer this option.

Purchase guide for the best mattress 2019


Something that worries a lot when choosing a mattress is the materials with which they are made. The viscoelastic, springs or latex are the most popular, however, there is a wide variety of materials on the market that provide a unique welcome and a personalized rest. 

Continuous spring mattresses: Mattresses that include this type of springs are characterized by having a casing formed by a single thread, distributed in a Z-shape, without any knot or cut. This type of spring provides a firm and very consistent structure. 

Classic spring mattresses: The classic springs, or biconical spring, are those that are independent. They have a double cone shape so that they narrow in the center when pressure is exerted on them. This type of springs is joined together through steel wires. 

Pocket spring mattresses: These mattresses are characterized by having hundreds of independent springs, aligned with each other, and bagged in individual fabric sacks. This allows a better arrangement of the mattress elements and offers high independence of beds. 

Latex Mattresses: The latex is extracted from the natural resin that is released by the rubber tree. Once processed, it can become a soft and fluffy material. Normally it is used to form the core of the mattress. In the market, there are two types of latex mattresses, natural and synthetic. It can be said that a mattress is made of natural latex if its percentage of natural latex is higher than 85%.

To keep the mattress in the best conditions for many years it is important: 

  • Flip the mattress every 3 or 4 months. If it is reversible you can also turn your faces around. 
  • Using mattress protectors or covers will protect you from external agents and lengthen your life. 
  • The use of a suitable base for each type of mattress is necessary and indispensable. 
  • Keep the room free of moisture and avoid direct contact with liquids.
  • Ventilate the sheets before making the bed.
  • Clean the mattress with a brush by hand, never with liquids.

What is the best mattress to avoid back pain?

One of the main reasons why we change the mattress is for health. There are a large number of people who wake up with back pains, lower back complaints or wake up constantly during sleep. 

This is because our mattress “has become bigger”, and has lost the properties that once had. Bear in mind that an 8-year-old mattress will not accommodate our backs just like one that has been used only for a few months or a year. If we have back pain when we go to bed, it is best to change our rest equipment. Changing the mattress would be the best option to combat lumbar or back discomfort; what you have to consider is: 

What mattress to buy for back pain?

This is a very common question. With the passage of time and as we increase our age, our body becomes increasingly sensitive and needs better care. Keep in mind that people spend an average of 25 years of our lives sleeping, so it is important to take good care of the place where we do it.  

Best mattress for overweight people suffering from back pain

Overweight people need a firm mattress to hold the weight in a balanced way and get a cloud effect that surrounds the sleeper. In our catalog, we have several mattresses that perfectly balance their high degree of firmness with adaptability, but the one that stands out and fits the overweight people is Comfort XL Comfort Premium viscoelastic mattress. 

Better mattress for people with a medium weight

Even though we are at our ideal weight, we may not be sleeping on the best mattress for us. A clear example is those people who are at an average weight but suffer back discomfort while resting.
