The majority of people sleep on their side. As one of the most comfortable sleeping positions, side sleepers are able to keep their necks and spines aligned throughout the night. So, they experience less pain when they wake up - but only if they are sleeping on the right mattress.
What mattress is best for side sleepers, though? By the end of this article, you’ll know the answer to that question and where to purchase them.
What Type of Mattress is Good for Side Sleepers?
If you’ve ever gone mattress shopping, then you know just how many types of mattresses are out there. Every mattress is ideal for a certain sleeping position and comfort preference. But what type is best for side sleepers?
Generally, a soft to medium-firm mattress is best for side sleepers. These mattresses contour to the body and relieve pressure points while you sleep. They also help keep your spine aligned and your neck and hips supported while you sleep.
The comfort level of the mattress for side sleepers also may depend on the person’s weight. For people under 130 pounds, a plush to soft-medium mattress is generally best. For those over 130 pounds, you should go with a soft-medium to medium-firm mattress.
Remember, this is all about your preference, though. You have to sleep well and be comfortable on your mattress. The above is just a guideline.
Best Mattresses for Side Sleepers
Now that you know what type of mattress is best for side sleepers, let’s dive into some examples of the best mattresses on the market.
Cocoa Soft Latex
The Cocoa Soft Latex mattress is ultra-plush and comfortable with three inches of natural latex and 1.5 inches of gel-infused plush foam.
Made from 100% natural latex, this mattress is durable and extremely comfortable. You also don’t have to flip the mattress to keep it in good shape.
Cocoa Gel Mattress
The Cocoa Gel mattress has a comfortable 2-inch layer of gel-infused memory foam for a restful and comfortable night’s sleep. The comfort level is more on the medium side, but you’ll still sleep like a baby thanks to the high-quality memory foam infused with gel.
This mattress helps balance your body, relieving the tension on pressure points, and offers a hugging sensation to those sleeping on it.
Cape 6-inch Mattress
The Cape 6-inch mattress is a great option for those side sleepers who can’t have a mattress of standard thickness. This medium comfort mattress is just as supportive as the others listed above, it just isn’t at thick.
