Our mattress has been designed and created to suit the majority of the population and because there is so much more to a mattress than just soft or firm, we often avoid placing it on a soft - firm scale.
It is crucial to know how much support a mattress is going to give you, what precautions have been made to ensure comfort and longevity and also whether you are going to overheat or not while sleeping.
On top of that, it is also important to allow the mattress to wear in, as similarly to a good pair of shoes, it will take some time to reach its perfect comfort levels.
After stating all that, we class OTTY Hybrid as medium-firm, around 7.5 on a scale of 1 - 10, with 1 being soft and 10 being firm. Using the same scale, we rate the Essential as 6.5/10.
