The first thing you can consider for a firmer mattress is the support structure. Do you have it on a box spring? If so, consider the age and shape of the box spring. If it is older and not as stable as it used to be, it may make the mattress feel less supportive.
Even if you have a foam mattress, you may have to throw away the box spring mattress, as some manufacturers recommend using a flatter and firmer surface to support the weight of the foam mattress.
Some other types of platforms you might try are a slatted foundation, a platform bed or other foundation that is solid, solid and provides a smoother surface than a spring-loaded boxspring spring.
You can also try to put a piece of plywood between bed mattress and mattress according to Nectar Sleep. This can be particularly helpful with foam mattresses, as they need a more stable foundation.
Try a mattress topper
You may know soft mattress pads that make your bed even softer, but there are plenty of mattress pads that can do just the opposite. If you choose a topper that will make your bed tighter, you will typically find memory foam, latex or polyurethane options.
You'll want to look for a 2 inch or thicker topper. You can also check the ILD (impression load deflection) when buying a latex topper. The ILD indicates how tight the mattress pad feels. The higher the number, the denser and tighter it will feel.

Turn down the thermostat in your bedroom
If you have a foam mattress and usually sleep in a warmer room, you can try to cool the room. The cooler temperature makes your foam mattress feel firmer, as heat can reduce the density of the foam. It will also help you.
Remember that your body heat also affects some of it, but it does not hurt to turn down the thermostat to see if it does anything. A difference to your mattress. Try to cool your room at least a few hours before going to sleep, so that the room and mattress have plenty of time to cool down.
