We all struggle to buy a mattress for some reason. The problem sometimes is not the cash to buy the mattress but rather the knowledge on which kind of mattress to buy to suit our sleeping needs. All of us are different, that is s fact to be accepted however our indifference does not make us not get what we want as far as mattresses are concerned.
To help you with your checklist, experts from Sleepholic came up with four things to consider when choosing the best mattress for your sleeping position.
1. The back sleeper
Are you a notorious back sleeper? Well, we have good news for you! You can get the mattress that suits your sleeping position without any problem. First, you need to understand as a back sleeper, your body position on the mattress puts no pressure on your spine because your spine is already in a comfortable position, so the best type of mattress for your sleeping position is the hard mattress. Any hard mattress will be good for you. You do not need a sinking mattress because that will misalign your spine. A hard bed will ensure your body remains in the stable condition throughout the night.
2. The turner
Tossing and turning is the norm for some people. There are people who will change different positions in one single night unconsciously. These people are at a greater risk of developing back problems in the future if they do not get a mattress that fits their sleeping position. So, the best mattress for someone who turns from back to side, side to front to the side again or any other side will be a medium to hard mattress. This mattress is not hard nor too soft (stinky) either promoting comfort in every sleeping position.
3. The side sleeper
Any side sleeper should have a mattress that guard’s their backs. It is very common for side sleepers to develop back problems such as pain due to prolonged pressure on the spine a reason why it is recommended to buy a medium soft bed for this sleeping position. A medium soft mattress will make sure your weight is distributed equally all throughout your body relieving any pressure off your back.
4. Stomach sleeper
These are people who sleep with their stomachs. Although not so common, for those who do however need to know that this sleeping position amongst all can have an advantage over any other sleeping position. A stomach sleeper can get away with a hard mattress and feel comfortable and still get away with a sinking mattress (soft) mattress. This is because, a stomach sleeper does not in any way put pressure on shoulders, the spine nor the thighs. The weight of this person is evenly distributed, and every part of the body is relaxed. This person can get away with a hard mattress or a soft mattress depending on their preferences.
Although not all of us have the same sleeping position, we are guaranteed satisfaction. If you are not sure about your sleeping position, positioning a camera to record you two to three nights can give you a concrete answer on which one of the above is your sleeping position enabling you to buy a mattress that your body deserves!
