Why Does Your Sleeping Position Matter When Choosing A Mattress?

Why Does Your Sleeping Position Matter When Choosing A Mattress

What sleeping style do you prefer? If you’ve never thought about this before, it’s time to find out. The next time you wake up, check which position you are in. The whole world is divided into back, stomach, and side sleepers. Even though the back position is considered to be very good for your body, more than 40% of the UK population prefers to sleep on one side or the other.

Determining your favourite position is not just good for statistics. It’s important for choosing the right mattress. For example, most of our customers who prefer the back position appreciate firmer mattresses. Meanwhile, some side and front sleepers choose softer beds, which yield better to their body pressure.

At Bedknobs, we know that when it comes to choosing a mattress, each person requires an individual approach. You may be a back sleeper and appreciate a soft mattress, a side sleeper who likes a firm bed, or a stomach sleeper without a clue as to what you need! That’s why in our showroom we always have a number of different mattresses for you to try.

Pocket Spring Mattresses For Different Sleeping Styles

A pocket spring mattress is among the few mattresses that may suit back, stomach, and side sleepers.

1. Pocket Springs For Back Sleepers

Back sleepers are often in need of good lower back support. Spring mattresses have each spring sitting in an individual pocket. It compresses under your pressure without affecting the neighbouring spring. It means that when you are on your back, your shoulders and buttocks settle into the mattress without sinking your spine.

2. Pocket Springs For Side Sleepers

A pocket spring mattress coupled with memory foam may be a good solution for side sleepers. The shoulders and hips compress the mattress more than your side, forcing you into the right position. Meanwhile, the memory foam can allow the pressure points to experience comfort.

3. Pocket Springs For Front Sleepers

The stomach position doesn’t come recommended by doctors. However, many people enjoy it. Pocket spring mattresses can help a stomach sleeper avoid the extra stress and pressure on the back and neck. If you are a stomach sleeper, you may want to check out hybrid (pocket springs and latex) mattresses, which are available in our showroom.

Pocket spring mattresses can have different fillings, making the bed comfortable for any type of sleeper.

Your sleeping position shouldn’t be the only thing to focus on when choosing the best mattress. However, it’s important to consider. Each sleeping style has its own pros and cons. The pressure applied to different points of your body may dictate the firmness or softness of the right mattress for your needs.

At Bedknobs, we dedicate as much time as possible to help you find the right mattress. Our showroom features a wide variety of mattresses, which you can test on the spot. Don’t be afraid to take your time choosing the best mattress. After all, we spend a third of our lives in bed. Let’s make this third spectacular!
