More pressure relief with the firm rather then the luxury firm?

I have a p5 sleep number which I am sending back since regardless of the number it gives me lower back pain. I am interested in the winkbed, but not sure if I should order firm or Lux firm. I'm a side sleeper and weigh 250 lbs. Which softness is best for me?

Hi there -- Thanks for your question. It would be very doubtful that you would get more pressure relief from the Firm version of the WinkBed than you would with the Luxury Firm. For most people in most sleeping positions, the Luxury Firm version will have a bit better pressure relief.

Note that this does not mean that the Luxury Firm is a better match for everyone though. Pressure relief is an important factor for everyone, but it must be considered alongside other factors like spinal alignment, comfort preferences, etc. To pick just one example, a male stomach sleeper who is 230 lbs and prefers a firmer sleep surface might find that the Firm model is a better match for him.

I hope that's helpful.
