What’s your sleep style? How to choose a suitable mattress for your sleep style?
Mattress for a Combination of Styles
We are all woken up in a bizarre position although we know which position we tend to fall asleep. Sometimes, we’re halfway on our back while sort-of at the same time on our side; sometimes we wake up on our stomachs with one knee curled up to our chest; and sometimes we wake up with one hand scraping the cold/hard floor.
- You should choose the right mattress if you are the type of sleeper that tends to move around a lot during the night, and you’re not really sure whether that categorizes you into a particular sleep style or not.
- Look for the best value and highest quality mattress. This is because this type of mattress not only can provide the firmness level you find most inviting but also keep temperature regulation and ease of movement in mind as well.
- If you suffer from back or joint pain, memory foam mattresses might feel incredible. A luxury latex mattress, made with quality materials, not only gives your joints the relief you’re looking for but also keep you cool without hindering your movement throughout the night.
Mattress for Stomach Sleepers
For stomach sleepers, there are really no hard and fast rules for mattress firmness because they are an odd bunch. Some stomach sleepers want a super-plush pillow top that they can literally sink six inches into like a cloud, while others prefer a firm mattress that keeps their back straight all night.
Mattress for Side Sleepers
Approximately 41 percent of all people like sleep in the fetal position, and women are twice as likely as men to sleep on their side. To maintain proper spine alignment throughout the night, side sleepers can keep a pillow between their knees (and a thicker pillow under their neck). More important, side sleepers are more likely to prefer soft or plush mattress firmness.
Mattress for Back Sleepers
Back sleepers tend to prefer a firmer mattress than side sleepers although more likely to snore as a result of their tongue falling into the back of their mouths. A firmer mattress not only can keep their spine in proper alignment but also prevent their back from arching into an uncomfortable slouching position. They place a thinner pillow under their necks and another pillow under their knees to aid with lower back pain.
