We all have our favorite sleeping positions: the stomach sleeper, back sleeper, side sleeper, spread across the bed and hog all the covers sleeper, the I just spent my entire day in meetings about meetings sleeper… you get the point. But, how many people have the right mattress to match their sleep style?
Let’s focus on the side sleeper – my favorite position.
The best mattress for side sleepers is one that contours to your body and keeps the spine aligned straight. Finding a mattress that provides proper alignment with your spine, neck and head is key to minimizing side back pain. This is why I recommend a plush mattress as the best mattress for side sleepers because it contours to your body.
Side sleepers want to stay away from mattresses that are too firm because these won’t contour to your body. As a result, your spine and lower back won’t be in proper alignment because your shoulders and hips will be too high.
On the other hand, a mattress that is too plush for you will not necessarily provide proper support in the middle for your back. This results in sagging in your spine. You want to find a mattress that provides comfort and support!
So, you’re probably saying to yourself right now, ‘Bob, I’m loving the knowledge that you are bestowing on me at this moment. But I need to ask the next obvious question… what are the best mattresses for side sleepers.’
I thought you’d never ask?!
Bob-O-Pedic Hybrid Radiance Plush
My Bob-O-Pedic Hybrid Radiance Plush offers the perfect blend of support and comfort. The foam encased individually wrapped coil system provides the support you need while the quilted knit cover with cooling technology provides a peaceful sleeping environment. Layers of gel-infused convoluted comfort foam and Bob-O-Pedic Memory Foam work together to aid in temperature regulation and pressure relief.
Bob-O-Pedic Twilight Plush
If you’re a side sleeper that enjoys a thick mattress, then my Bob-O-Pedic Twilight Plush mattress is for you! This beauty of a mattress features 14” of supportive and comfortable foam and also includes a micro coil for extra conformance. The Twilight also includes a stretch knit cover with innovative phase change material (PCM) threads. This material absorbs excess body heat and then releases it again to the body when needed.
Bob-O-Pedic Prize Hybrid
My Bob-O-Pedic Prize Hybrid mattress pairs Bob-O-Pedic Gel Memory Foam with charcoal for temperature regulation, odor control and pressure relief. This comfy mattress also has an individually wrapped coil system for support and ships as a bed-in-a-box. Did I ever tell you how fun it is to set up my bed-in-a-box mattresses?

If you’re a side sleeper that enjoys a cool sleeping environment, then my Bob-O-Pedic Sky mattress is the best mattress for you.
