Selecting a Comfort Level

An uncomfortable mattress is the worst. Tossing and turning all night isn’t how anyone gets their beauty sleep. Even more frustrating is the “one size fits all” mentality when it comes to mattresses. We know that everyone is different; there’s a personal level of comfort needed to get the best night’s sleep. Don’t settle for a mattress that isn’t specifically tailored to you. Whether you’re a side, back, or stomach sleeper, or anything in between, we can find the right mattress to fit your comfort level.

Need help choosing your comfort level? Here are some things to keep in mind.

Side sleepers:

Sleeping on your side is one of the most healthy sleep options. Side sleeping is one of the better ways to sleep because it allows your spine to rest in its natural position, keeps your joints in a neutral position, and can eliminate snoring. If you’re a side sleeper, it’s important to choose a mattress that contours to the curves of your body. Otherwise you may find yourself tossing and turning through the night only to wake up with aches and pains. Softer mattresses generally conform better than firm mattresses, but a firm mattress with a pillow or euro top can also provide adequate conforming comfort. However, the best option for you would be the conforming mattress. Following the curve of your body, this type of mattress provides personalized comfort leading you to a great night’s sleep.

Back sleepers:

If you’re the type of person to sleep on your back, you may have experienced lower back pain, this is no surprise.  If a mattress is too firm, it won’t conform to the curves of your body leaving the natural arch in your lower back strained. To avoid this, consider a plush or pillow top mattress. These mattresses will provide extra arch support and stability for your back giving you the comfort you need and allowing you to get the deep restorative sleep that you need to function properly.

Stomach sleepers:

Stomach sleeping, unfortunately, is the least healthy way to sleep. Many people who sleep in this position experience back pain due to poor spinal alignment while they sleep. If you are a stomach sleeper, it’s important to keep your spine in mind when choosing the right mattress comfort level. For stomach sleepers, you should think about purchasing a medium-firm level of comfort. Mattresses that are neither excessively firm nor very soft will provide the right amount of support to your midsection and keep you from arching your spine as you sleep.

For whatever type of sleeper you are, you can rest assured that there’s a mattress for you. Our large selection gives you the freedom to find your ideal comfort level for both your sleep and your wallet. Come by and see what we can do for you!
