Regardless of how you choose to rest, Aventura Mattress has the best mattresses for side sleepers, back sleepers and stomach sleepers. Find out how important your sleeping position is to your rest and what you need to know before buying the best bed for your preferred sleeping position:
Back sleeperAlthough it's common for us to lie on our backs to rest, only 8 to 14 percent of sleepers say their preferred sleeping position is on their backs. Although it is not the most well-known sleeping position, sleeping on the back is perhaps the best situation for the arrangement of the head, back and neck. Since there is no additional pressure factor added to those spaces, your spine can rest in an unbiased position. But for people who suffer from heartburn and snoring, sleeping on their backs can increase those problems as it can cause what is known as obstructive sleep apnea because the airway is obstructed and makes breathing difficult, the best mattresses for this style of sleep are Memory foam or hybrid mattresses.
Nearly 75% of sleepers prefer to rest on their side and this is the most commonly chosen sleeping position. However, despite being one of the most chosen sleeping positions, sleeping on the side causes problems in the shoulders, hips and back if the spine, neck and hips are not well aligned.
The secret to side sleeping is to choose the best mattress and pillow for side sleeping. When you sleep on your side, you must ensure that your body stays aligned so that the pressure factor is removed from your shoulders and hips and you can rest and get up in the morning with peace of mind. You should choose ultra-plush and plush mattresses if you sleep on your side.
If you sleep on your stomach, you've probably heard the general agreement that it's not the most beneficial sleeping situation because of the extra strain it can put on your neck and spine. Despite this, 16% of the population likes to rest on their stomachs, even if you like your bed to be extra comfortable, a solid mattress is best plush mattress
