The best memory foam mattresses for different sleeping positions

Posted on

When you’re shopping for a new mattress, your favourite sleeping positions are a really important factor. Some mattresses are designed to suit a particular kind of sleeper – for example someone who sleeps on their side. Other mattresses are designed to accommodate a range of sleeping positions. Simply scroll down to the relevant section to see our advice and recommendations.

Back Sleepers

It’s widely suggested that sleeping on your back is the best position for your health. Back support, neck support, improved blood circulation, and even reducing the risk of wrinkles. All of these things are attributed to sleeping on your back by Health. The only drawback? Sleeping on your back can be problematic for snorers – or rather, their partners.

Our Recommendations for Back Sleepers

Back Sleepers must make sure that their back is properly supported during the night. If there’s a gap between your lower back and the mattress, your back is not properly supported. Memory foam to the rescue! This amazing material moulds to the shape of your body, and provides full body support – your lower back included.


Side Sleepers

Sleeping on your side is the position of choice for many. The problem for side sleepers on traditional mattresses is the increased pressure which piles up on your hips, shoulders and knees.

For the ultimate comfort, pressure-relief and support, side sleepers should be looking for a mattress with a deep memory foam layer (ideally 5cm+). This deep comfort layer will allow your hips, shoulders and other high-pressure points to sink into the mattress resulting in correct spinal alignment and a healthy sleeping position. With the right memory foam mattress, you’ll find you’re waking up feeling well-rested, refreshed and free of aches and pains.

Our Recommendations for Side Sleepers

We produce memory foam mattresses which are loved by side sleepers across the UK. Choose from 5cm, 7cm and even 8cm of memory foam depending on how firm or soft you like your bed. To see the best memory foam mattresses for side sleepers, browse our range and slim down your choices using the ‘Memory Foam Depth’ control in the left hand column.


Front Sleepers

Bad news – sleeping on your front comes bottom of the list for your health. It’s not good for spinal alignment and can also put strain on your pressure points.

Our Recommendations for Front Sleepers

Memory foam is great for front sleepers, as it helps to improve your nighttime posture by providing full body support. All of our memory foam mattresses are suitable for front sleepers – it’s mainly down to your preference when it comes to firmness, and your budget.
