If you're in the market for a new mattress there are several things to consider before making a decision. One of the biggest factors to consider in the shopping process is your general sleeping position.
If you sleep on your back there are some things you'll want to keep in mind. With decades of experience helping our customers choose the best mattresses to meet their needs, here's our advice.
Sleeping on your back can put a lot of pressure on your back and hips. If your mattress is too firm, your hips could not be getting the cushion or support needed.
Back sleepers need quality support to ensure their spine remains properly aligned throughout the night. With a mattress that is too soft, your hips can sink too low and put too much pressure on your lower back. If you choose a mattress that is too firm, your shoulders can bear too much weight.
We recommend the following mattress comfort types for back sleepers.
Back sleeping has been associated with several issues including increased snoring, acid reflux, and back pain. Several studies have shown that elevating the head of your bed slightly and finding the ideal sleeping position for your body gave improve these symptoms. (Danoff-Burg, Sharon et al.)
To do this, you can carefully place pillows to raise your head. While this solution may work well, it can be difficult to place pillows correctly to remain comfortable or to keep your pillows in place throughout the night.
