  1. Best Memory Foam Mattress for Side Sleepers During the night, many people find themselves turning to their side for to get a good night’s sleep, so when choosing a memory foam mattress, what is the best mattress for side sleepers? Read our guide to find out! Support, firmness, and pelvic rotation are some key factors to consider when selecting a memory foam mattress as a side sleeper. If you are a side sleeper like we are, you are less likely to struggle with snoring or air flow issues, but can suffer from hip, back, or neck pain. All of these can be addressed by choosing a memory foam mattress correctly. Support Mattress support is important for side sleepers, which is especially important since the spine may be misaligned already and can be made worse without adequate levels of support. A supportive memory foam mattress will relieve pressure points and keep the spine, neck, and back in alignment. It must be noted that support is not the same as firmness. A soft mattress can still provide great support if constructed properly. When shopping for the best mattress for side sleepers, you want to look for a mattress that contours to the shape of your body. Memory foam mattresses are especially advantageous for side sleepers due to the ability of the foam to contour to your body and provide support and alignment to the spine. The actual positions of side sleepers are varied, some of the most popular ones include forms like: The log – legs fully extended The sprinter – one leg straight, one leg bent The fetal – both legs curled at the knee

  2. If you are a side sleeper, you will most likely vary your sleeping position from one form to another, so it is vital to make sure you have adequate support to contour your body during the night as you sleep. Firmness Side sleepers will generally want something soft to moderate on the firmness scale. A softer mattress will help reduce pressure on your neck and back, which will help support the spine and allow a better nights sleep. Firmness is most likely the most important feature for side sleepers, as the nature of the side position dictates contour and support needs. In order to provide support while sleeping on your side, the mattress must contour to the curves of the body. Memory foam mattresses are very adept at providing this contour and support and choosing the right firmness will ensure a comfortable side sleeping experience. Pelvic Rotation Pelvic rotation is the result of misalignment of the back muscles and lumbar spine. When you sleep and twist or curl your legs up in the opposite position to your upper body, you cause pelvic rotation. This can lead to or worsen any lower back and neck pain so it is important to choose the right mattress to prevent this. You can do a few things to help with pelvic rotation, such as sleeping in a side position that keeps your spine in alignment, using a pillow between your legs to maintain spinal alignment, choosing the proper mattress such as the correct memory foam mattress to prevent pressure points that may cause you to adjust your sleep position during the night which causes pelvic rotation.
