Updated: May 5

Are you tired of tossing and turning at night, unable to find that elusive perfect sleeping position? Your quest for the ultimate comfort might just start with your mattress. At Mattress King, we understand that every sleeper is unique, and finding the right mattress depends on factors such as body type, preferences, and yes, even your preferred sleeping position.

The three most common sleep positions are back, stomach and side.

The position you sleep in determines your comfort level and the type of mattress you should sleep on. What's Your Comfort Level? A Comprehensive Guide to Mattress Comfort Levels sheds more light on the different kinds of comfort levels. Make sure you check it out

Here’s our comprehensive guide to help you navigate the world of mattresses based on your sleeping position:



1. Back Sleepers


For those who prefer to sleep on their backs, proper spinal alignment is crucial. A mattress that provides adequate support to the lower back while also cushioning the shoulders and hips can help prevent discomfort and promote a restful night’s sleep. Look for medium-firm to firm mattresses with contouring capabilities to maintain a neutral spine position.

Comfort Levels: Extra Firm, Firm, Plush Firm


Recommended Mattress Types: Memory foam, latex, hybrid (foam and innerspring combination)



2. Side Sleepers


Side sleepers often experience pressure points at the hips and shoulders due to their body weight being concentrated in specific areas. A mattress with sufficient cushioning to relieve pressure points while still supporting the spine is ideal for side sleepers. Opt for a softer mattress that allows your hips and shoulders to sink in slightly, promoting better alignment and comfort.


Comfort Levels: Plush, Soft, Luxury Soft

Recommended Mattress Types: Memory foam, pillow-top, hybrid (with a plush comfort layer)



3. Stomach Sleepers


While sleeping on your stomach can alleviate snoring and sleep apnea symptoms, it may also strain the neck and lower back if not properly supported. Stomach sleepers typically benefit from a firmer mattress that prevents the body from sinking too deeply, particularly at the hips. Look for a mattress with adequate support to keep the spine aligned and avoid arching the back excessively.

Comfort Levels: Plush or Plush Firm


Recommended Mattress Types: Innerspring, hybrid (with firm support layer), natural latex (firm)



4. Combination Sleepers


If you’re someone who changes positions throughout the night, you’ll need a mattress that accommodates various sleeping preferences. A responsive mattress that offers both support and contouring can adapt to your movements, ensuring uninterrupted sleep regardless of your chosen position. Consider a mattress with a balanced feel that strikes a middle ground between plush and firm.

Comfort Levels: Firm, Plush Firm, Plush, Soft

Recommended Mattress Types: Hybrid, responsive memory foam, latex
