Whenever you’re shopping for a new mattress, firmness and feel should be your primary criteria for assessing different options. These factors will majorly influence whether a given mattress is well suited to your preferred sleep style and other sleep needs. So let’s get to know the Helix Dusk better by taking a look at its firmness and feel!
How Firm Is The Helix?
We ranked the Helix mattress around a 7 out of 10 on the firmness scale. The industry standard for medium firmness is 6.5/10, so this suggests the Helix Dusk is just a touch firmer-than-average.
We should note that firmness is a bit of a subjective measurement. Your perception of the Helix firmness could differ slightly from ours depending on your body weight and personal preferences.
Sleeping On The Helix
The Helix is one of the more supportive models in the Helix line, which helps explain why we felt especially great while back sleeping on this mattress. Our hips stayed elevated and aligned with our spine, and we’re confident that we’ll enjoy proper spinal alignment all night long.
Because it’s on the firmer side, the Helix is not the best match for side sleepers. We experienced some pressure around the shoulder and hip, and we couldn’t stay comfortable in this position throughout the entire night. Most strict side sleepers will probably want to look at the softer Helix Sunset or Helix Moonlight, although lightweight side sleepers might find enough comfort here.
Thanks to its supportive nature, the Helix should offer adequate spinal support to many stomach sleepers—particularly folks who are lightweight or average weight. However, heavier-weight stomach sleepers might find that their hips sink too far into the mattress and pull the spine out of alignment. (More on how this mattress suits different body weights below!)
