Sleeping Positions

Sleeping positions

Side sleepers:

Side sleepers are people who tend to lay on their sides while they sleep, they find the position comforting and they tend to like being cradled. The best type of mattress for side sleepers is memory foam mattresses. 

Benefits:

  • Mould to your body shape 
  • Relieves pressure points
  • Keeps your sign aligned 
  • Reduces aches and pains in your hips and shoulders 

Disadvantages:

  • Can cause back pain 
  • Can cause neck pains 
  • Can cause shoulder pains 

Stomach sleepers:

Stomach sleepers are more common than you think, they tend to roll around in bed while they sleep and end up laying flat on their stomach as it is a comforting position for them. A medium-firm mattress is best for stomach sleepers,

Benefits:

  • They keep the spine in a naturally aligned position 
  • Stop sagging into the mattress
  • Less chance of back pain
  • Provides a balance of pressure relief and support

Disadvantages:

  • Strains your back, neck and joints 
  • It may affect your digestive system 
  • Your whole body weight is being pushed against your stomach 

Back sleepers:

Back sleepers are the most people that have back problems, this can be solved by purchasing a newer more innovative mattress. Back sleepers tend to stay in one place as they sleep. A medium-firm mattress is best for back sleepers.

Benefits: 

  • Prevents sinking into the mattress 
  • Prevents the spine from becoming misaligned 
  • Cushions your shoulders, hips and lower back 

Disadvantages:

  • Can cause lower back pain 
  • Can be uncomfortable for those not used to sleeping on their backs 
  • Can cause you to snore, disrupting others’ sleep
