Certain Models Built For Side Sleepers: Helix
Memory Foam: Amerisleep Revere
Foam/Springs Hybrid: Sapira
Helix is a great option for stomach sleepers because they completely customize your mattress based on your answers to a series of questions. One of the first questions is what is your preferred sleeping position (see how it works HERE). Through this customization process, you know that you are getting a mattress tailored to your individual needs. You will be able to get a mattress that has an ideal firmness level for stomach sleeping and also based on your weight and body type.
Saatva is an innerspring mattress with a euro-style pillow top. I think it’s around a 6.5 out of 10 on the firmness scale, making about the ideal firmness for sleeping on your stomach. Overall, it’s a highly supportive mattress that should prevent your back from getting into a curved shape that could lead to pain (see more HERE). Its has a history of good reviews over the past five years, so I think it’s definitely worth taking a look at.
The Revere mattress from Amerisleep is made specifically for stomach and back sleepers (check out their website). It is firmer than average, but the memory foam in the comfort layer relieves pressure and makes the sleeping surface comfortable. The mattress also has some extra bells and whistles in it like the celliant cover, which can promote more restful sleep. Overall it’s a solid choice if you like a memory foam feel and sleep on your stomach.
The Sapira mattress is a cool concept because it combines a heavy-duty coil support system with memory foam and performance foam (see detailed construction). The end result is a highly supportive mattress that has good pressure relief where you don’t sink in too much and have the feeling of getting stuck. I thought it was firmer than average, making it ideal for stomach sleeping. It uses all quality components, so it should last a long time as well.
There’s a few things you should look out for when buying a mattress catered to stomach sleeping.
There are a lot of great options out there. If you just watch out for the things I’ve listed out here, you should be able to get a pretty good mattress for you.
