Mattress Buying Guide: By Sleep Style

Good health and a good night’s sleep are directly related, so having the right mattress is incredibly important. We have compiled a list of tips on buying a mattress and pillow based on your sleep style to help you with your mattress purchase.

A mattress needs to support your body in a neutral position that keeps your back, neck, and shoulders in alignment. It is incredibly important to figure out what type of mattress works best for your comfort level. If a mattress is too firm it will not support your body evenly which puts pressure on your neck, shoulders, and back. If it’s too soft or old and saggy you’ll sink in too far and have a hard time moving. 

A stomach sleeper will usually suffer from lower back pain, which can get worse if your mattress is saggy or extra soft. If this is your normal sleep style, you want an extra firm mattress that won’t allow your body to sink and cause extra pressure on your spine. As for your pillow, a thinner supportive pillow is best to keep your neck in alignment with the rest of your body.

Recommendations: 8" Eloquence Firm Memory Foam
The most important part of a good night’s sleep is lower back support. If you sleep on your back you should avoid a stiff mattress. A firm memory foam mattress that contours to the body with just enough support is the best bet. If you prefer a conventional mattress, try an extra firm innerspring mattress. For your neck support you want a firm pillow that will support your neck evenly.

Sleeping on your side is the most common sleep position. A mattress that eliminates the stress on your shoulders and hips is best for the side sleeper. A slightly softer mattress allows your body to sink into the mattress just enough to relieve the pressure on your spine. Try pairing a medium firmness memory foam or conventional mattress with a contour pillow that supports your neck. An even sleeping surface is key to making sure your spine and joints remain free of stress.

Most people are combination sleepers, which means that they move around a lot in bed trying to get comfortable. In this case it’s important that you pick a mattress that is the most comfortable for you. You’ll want to find a mattress that allows you a comfortable position in all three common sleeping styles.
