The Perfect Mattresses for Side Sleepers

Sleeping on your side is the most common sleeping position among the 3 different styles (back, side and stomach). Choosing the wrong mattress as a side sleeper can result in chronic hip and shoulder pain, as well as loss of blood circulation in the arms.

The perfect mattress for side sleeping is a soft mattress with firm support. Your mattress should have a fair amount of cushion on top (pillow-top or plush) to provide optimal relief for the pressure points in your hips and shoulders. Whether you decide on innerspring, latex or memory foam, your support should be firm, which will keep your spine properly aligned and eliminate the achy back you feel the first 15 minutes of being awake.  

Bed Pros offers a wide variety of choices for side sleepers. Here are our recommendations for every budget:
