BODYGUARD® Scores Twice:
Two Degrees of Firmness in a Single Mattress

A softer or firmer bed in one and the same mattress – just flip it over!


There are a lot of misunder­standings concerning the degree of firmness. Manu­facturers often give weight recom­mendations and couple them to the firmness. While there is a DIN standard for mattress firmness, this is not legally binding, and not even 25% of all manu­facturers observe this standard in their labelling. All BODYGUARD® Mattresses offer precise degrees of firmness in accordance with DIN EN 1957.


⁃ Every BODYGUARD® Mattress incor­porates two levels of firmness.

⁃ Depending on which side you use, your bed is softer or firmer. If you want a different firm­ness, simply flip the mattress over.

⁃ The BODYGUARD® Anti-Cartel-Mattress has a medium firm (H3) and a firm (H4) side.

⁃ The BODYGUARD® Soft has a very soft (H1) side and a soft (H2) side.

How Can I Tell Which Side is Firmer or Softer?

With the BODYGUARD® Anti-Cartel-Mattress

There are two ways to tell what degree of firmness you are lying on:

Illustration: The BODYGUARD Anti-Cartel-Mattress. The cover is folded up on one side to reveal the varicoloured mattress core. On the top is the dark, medium firm side (H3).

1. Legibility of the BODYGUARD® logo on the side straps
The logo with the word ‘BODYGUARD’ is on the black straps on the mattress sides of the cover. If this logo is right-side up and legible, you are lying on the medium firm (H3) side. Do you want a firmer mattress? Simply flip the mattress over.
If the ‘BODYGUARD’ logo is located at the head-end, you are lying on the firm (H4) side.
Do you want a softer mattress? Simply flip the mattress over.

2. Colour of the mattress core
Open the all-round zipper on the mattress cover and take a look at the mattress core. The mattress core of the BODYGUARD® Mattress consists of a dark upper side and a light lower side. The dark side of the mattress is the medium firm (H3) side. The light mattress side is firm (H4).
Do you want a different level of firmness? Simply flip the mattress over.

Once you have decided on the side you wish to lie on, you can safely leave your BODYGUARD® in this position in the bed. The mattress need not be flipped and turned every month. The very stable QXSchaum® Mattress Foam used means that the mattress does not require a three-month regeneration phase.

Which Degree of Firmness is Right for Me?

The most important thing with a mattress is that the spine be optimally supported in every sleeping position. Stiftung Warentest tested the BODYGUARD® Anti-Cartel-Mattress on the basis of the HEIA typology it had introduced itself and judged it to be one of those rare mattresses that is well suited to all common body types (“test“ 10/2018 – tested: 90 x 200 cm, medium firm). Regard­less whether you sleep in a back or side position, whether you are short, light, tall or heavy. We there­fore do not provide a weight-based recom­mendation for the degree of firmness. All body types sleep well on the BODYGUARD® Anti-Cartel-Mattress. Merely decide for yourself: Do you prefer a firmer or a softer bed?

The Level of Firmness is a Personal Decision

Some people prefer a firmer bed, some a softer bed. The BODYGUARD® Anti-Cartel-Mattress is suitable for all types of people, heavy ones as well as light ones, in all lying positions. Stiftung Warentest rolled a 140-kg roller over the mattress 60,000 times. The result: the BODYGUARD® has very good durability and does not form a body impression.
