Consider the difference between a "tube sock" and a "crew sock" --the latter has a kink in it; it is supposed to fit the shape of the foot better.
Well, all mattresses that I've ever encountered are built flat. Some are soft and flexible enough so that if the bed frame has a bend in it under the
matress, the mattress bends to match the frame.
I'm proposing mattresses that are specially constructed to better fit such bent frames. They are not intended to be flatten-able, any more than a really firm flat mattress is intended to be bend-able.
It should be obvious that such a mattress with a built-in kink (or even more than one kink) could also be firm enough to be appreciated by anyone who likes a firm mattress, and who also likes the physical sleeping position offered by a bent bed frame.
Some bent beds that can't work with really firm mattresses

There's a lot of high-tech mattresses nowadays!

||By the way, regarding socks, I prefer the tube type. That's because of the wear-and tear issue. A crew sock can only be worn one way; when the heel develops a hole you either have to get a new sock or dig out the sewing kit to repair it.
||But a tube sock can be worn in different positions. If it gets a hole in one position, you simply rotate the sock before putting it on (and nobody will see the hole, hidden by the average shoe). It can take a fair amount of time to wear out 4 heel-holes in the sock, at which time you throw it away.
||You will probably have had to patch the other sock at least twice, to get it to last that same amount of time.

behind the tongue of your brogues?
||[MaxwellBuchanan], no, the cloth of a tube-sock bunchs up at that spot, which suffices to hide the hole! :)
||[21 Quest], I'm not sure there are permanently kinked bed frames out there. But this Idea is about the mattresses for such beds, not for adjustable frames. OK.
