Best Mattress for Side Sleepers
In my experience, I've learned the firm surfaces of a mattress will cause pressure and discomfort to a side sleepers hips and shoulders. The pressure and discomfort result in tossing and turning all night long, and you wake up feeling like you didn't get enough rest because you didn't! If you enjoy sleeping on your side and have broad shoulders or wide hips, plush or pillow-top mattresses will relieve the pressure and significantly reduce the number of times you toss and turn in a night, while still giving you the support your body needs.
Support comes from the spring unit inside of the mattress, rather than the padding layers on top of a mattress. Firmer mattresses don't always mean longer lasting or more support. It is vitally important customers take time testing a mattress in the store that they plan to be sleeping on for several hours every night. Adding padding on top of a mattress that is too firm is a simple fix. Removing padding from a mattress that is too soft is very difficult. At the Mattress Doctor, the sales staff will always take the time to comfort test and find you the mattress of your dreams!
