Your personal ideal night of sleep involves a variety of different elements: the ideal temperature, the correct lighting and the coziest linens. And of course, the most important element of all: the perfect mattress.
There are a few different factors that go into choosing your perfect mattress, too. You have to choose a material: traditional innerspring, memory foam, or hybrid? Then you’ll want to consider your mattress size preference: twin, full, queen, or king? And finally, there is your preferred sleeping position: back, side, or stomach?
Certain mattresses work best for certain sleeping positions, and if you’re sleeping on a mattress that's the wrong fit for your particular sleep preferences, your comfort levels and sleep quality will likely suffer. Today we're continuing our sleep position series with the best mattresses for one of the least common (but highly beloved) positions: stomach sleeping.
If you are a stomach sleeper, chances are you've heard that it’s not the most beneficial position and can be hard on your back. But don’t worry, that doesn’t mean you need to switch it up and give up your favorite position! All you need to get the optimal nighttime support and comfort is the right mattress.
Because stomach sleeping isn't as conducive to natural spinal alignment as other positions, those who prefer to belly-flop into bed at night should pay extra attention to the firmness of their mattress. Stomach sleepers need good spinal support and pressure point relief, and so the best mattresses for stomach sleepers are on the firmer side. Additionally, because of they way they “hug” their mattress, stomach sleepers are the most likely to get hot during the night and benefit from mattresses with cooling technology. Finally, the stomach sleepers who like to sprawl out should pay special attention to the edge support of their mattress.
So, what are the best mattresses for stomach sleepers? Generally speaking, the best are firmer mattresses with cooling technology and edge support. If you like what you're reading and are wondering what your options are, here are a few of our favorite mattress picks fromSealy,Tempur-Pedic, andStearns & Foster:
