The Best Mattresses for Side Sleepers

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!

I thought you’d never ask?!
