I am looking to purchase this bed. However, we are coming from a Heavenly Bed by Weston and I have read that some people say they sink into this bed or have a hugged feeling. We are not wanting to sink too much into the bed. Therefore, should I choose a firm bed instead of the medium?

Hi there -- Thanks for your question. I do think you will experience less sinking on the firm vs. the medium, so it sounds like that could be a good option if you want to have more of a floating feeling than a hugged or cradled feel.

That said, I am gathering that you most likely had the pillow-top version of the Heavenly Bed, which is likely to have more cushioning depth than even the medium version of the Alexander, which we rated as having only "slightly deeper than average" cushioning depth. You should also know that the pillow-top version of the Heavenly Bed would certainly have more overall softness than the firm version of the Alexander.

You can see more in the Softness and Cushioning Depth sections of our in-depth Alexander Signature review here:

You can also watch our discussion of Cushioning Depth in our video review of the Alexander Signature mattress here:

I hope that's helpful.
