Tell me about mattresses for stomach sleeper.

If you sleep on your stomach, you’re much less likely to snore. But the truth is that this sleeping position isn’t recommended because it can lead to overarching the natural curve of your spine. And it can put great strain on your neck, too. All the more reason to take extra care when selecting your mattress.

While sleeping on your back or side helps to support your spine, stomach sleepers put significantly more pressure on their spine. And that means you’re likely to need a lot of support than a side sleeper would in order to avoid potential back pain and spinal issues.

You’ll be most comfortable on a firm mattress.

Anything too soft will place additional pressure on your lower back, because there will be too much give under your hips. A firm (or medium-firm) mattress will provide more support, and it’ll help maintain the natural alignment of your spine by stopping your body from sinking into the mattress.

It’s all about finding the balance between resistance and comfort, and pocket spring mattresses are one option. They’re designed to distribute your weight as evenly as possible while you sleep. Because their individual springs are cushioned within their own pockets, your pressure points will be fully supported, too.
