Soft mattresses are more or less quite the same. There is medium type of mattresses as well which are soft but firm as well with the mixture of polyester in them. These are neither very hard nor very soft. Then the last category is of firm or hard mattresses that do not have soft cushions in side them rather these mattresses are often made of cotton materials. Those who like to lay on hard beds or ground surfaces like to select these ones.
