If you’re a back sleeper, it might surprise you to find out that side sleepers and stomach sleepers also exist. We all have our habits and preferences when it comes to getting a good night’s sleep. But what’s most important is being able to relax and feel well-rested when you wake up the next day. Back sleepers and stomach sleepers generally have an easier time falling asleep on most types of mattresses, but side sleepers may experience pain and discomfort on overly firm bedding such as spring mattresses.
The science behind memory foam explains why a foam mattress is the best choice for side sleepers. All sleepers have pressure points that stick out and poke into their mattress, causing discomfort. This is because we all have different body shapes, and many mattresses are unable to evenly distribute weight. Side sleepers may feel even more discomfort in their pressure points since all of their weight is on their side. Memory foam addresses many of these issues since it is a malleable material that adjusts to the contours of a sleeper’s body so that their weight is evenly distributed throughout.
Memory foam is perfect for relieving pain and pressure on a sleeper’s shoulder and hip, which are pressure points that commonly experience aches and pains.
