If you're a back sleeper, you're in luck! Experts generally consider back sleeping to be ideal, though only about 10% of us naturally sleep that way.
Back sleeping is excellent for your back and spinal health, as well as for proper circulation-- as long as you're sleeping on the right mattress!
In general, back sleepers do best with medium-firm mattresses, as they provide a more consistent support for your pressure points.
If you go too soft, you could end up with sinking hips and a sore back. But go too firm and you'll likely have too much resistance on your hips and shoulders, also resulting in back pain.
The key is to find the firmness sweet spot: soft enough that the small of your back can rest comfortably on the mattress, but firm enough that your hips and shoulders are equally supported.Click here to learn more and get our specific recommendations.
