If you’re a stomach sleeper, then you are a very unique individual. Sleeping on your stomach is the least popular position to sleep in amongst adults. However, some people do find it comfortable.
Unfortunately, sleeping on your stomach can cause aches and pains due to the position. People will often wake up with neck, shoulder, and back pain because their spines are unaligned throughout the night and their neck is turned.
There is a way to make sleeping on your stomach more comfortable, though! You have to find the right mattress to support your body in the correct positions and points. In this article, we’ll go over what type of mattress is best for stomach sleepers and give you examples of where to find them.
What Type of Mattress is Good for Stomach Sleepers?
Stomach sleepers need a medium to firm comfort level mattress. Sleeping on a mattress that is too soft won’t give the pushback our bodies need to keep our spines straight while we sleep. A mattress that isn’t medium to firm can cause our stomachs to sink, which then curves our spine and can cause aches and pain in the morning.
If you think that a medium or firm mattress is too hard and uncomfortable for you, you can add a mattress topper or find a mattress with a padded top layer for balanced comfort. The important thing is for the mattress itself to be strong and not too flexible under your weight.
Best Mattresses for Stomach Sleepers
Now that you know what kind of mattress stomach sleepers should have, let’s explore some options you can check out right now.
Cocoa Firm Latex Mattress
The Cocoa Firm Latex mattress has a medium-firm comfort level with a one-and-a-half-inch layer of gel-infused foam for balanced comfort. Made from 100% natural latex, this mattress is durable and stays cool while you sleep at night.
It’s also made with a tempered steel coil system for maximum support to keep your spine aligned and straight while you sleep.
Sanibel Latex Mattress
The Sanibel Latex mattress has a medium comfort level and is actually thinner than most mattresses, measuring at just seven inches thick. Don’t let the thickness fool you though! This mattress offers just as much comfort and support as a regular-sized mattress. It’s also lighter and can fit in more unique spaces because of how thin it is.
With two inches of all-natural latex and three-quarters of an inch of gel-infused foam padding, you’ll get the support you need but still feel like you’re sleeping on a cloud.
Clearwater Medium Mattress
The Clearwater Medium mattress offers a medium comfort level that’s perfect for stomach sleepers. With high-density upholstery padding and three-quarters of an inch thick gel medium padding, you’ll have one of the best night’s sleep on this mattress.
The mattress is supported by a steel coiled system so you won’t feel achy when you wake up in the morning. There is also a breathable base layer to keep you cool during the night.
Daytona Firm Mattress
The Daytona Firm mattress is one of the firmest mattresses on the market but is still comfortable thanks to its gel-infused medium foam padding. It also has strong coils along the perimeter for even more support.
If you feel that sleeping on your stomach is starting to affect the way you sleep and your muscles in the morning, then you’ll definitely benefit from this firmer mattress.
