How you sleep at night can greatly influence the type of mattress you should buy. Click through to learn which types of mattresses are best for back, side and stomach sleepers.
Back sleepers often need additional support to keep their lower back properly aligned. Mattresses with a medium comfort level conform to the lower back arch, allowing you to relax your lower back muscles and sleep comfortably.
A mattress that is too firm will not conform as easily around your body’s natural curves, while a mattress that is too soft may not provide enough body-aligning support.
To alleviate pressure points and not put too much strain on your shoulder and hips, side sleepers should choose a medium to soft mattress firmness.
A medium to soft mattress will provide ample support to keep your body aligned while providing enough comfort to allow you to sleep on your side all night long.
Stomach sleepers require a firmer sleep surface in order to properly align their back and hips. Too soft of a mattress will cause your back to arch, creating added stress and pain on the back.
Firm and medium firm mattresses will provide enough support to keep your spine perfectly aligned throughout the night.
