What Type of Sleeper Are You?
How to Select the Best Mattress for Your Lifestyle
Do you know what type of sleeper you are? There are three main sleeping positions: stomach, side, and back. While each one may be comfortable for you when you’re sleeping, they may not be best for your body if you don’t have the right mattress. Find out which type of mattress is best for your sleeping position!
Side sleepers: Sleeping on your side can lead to back pain and other discomforts. When you sleep on your side, you’re putting pressure on your shoulders, hips, and knees—not just your spine. Because of this, you have a higher chance of waking up with aches and pains. Another thing that can cause pain is sleeping on a low-quality mattress.
If you’re a side sleeper, you’ll want to invest in a softer mattress, which can support your body and spine while still relieving any pressure in your shoulders, hips, and knees. Latex foam mattresses are great for side sleepers because they provide the perfect level of support, while also a significant amount of “give” exactly where you need it.
Voila’s Soft mattress is exactly what you’d expect from sleeping on a cloud. High-density latex and memory foam hug your curves and help you sleep more soundly while relieving pressure in your shoulders, hips, and knees.
Back sleepers: The general consensus among medical professionals is that sleeping on your back is the best possible position. It lets your head, neck, and back rest without the pain of extra pressure. But without a quality mattress, sleeping on your back could lead to some pain. A high-quality mattress will support your spine while relieving pressure around your joints and curves.
Back sleepers would benefit most from mattresses with medium firmness, which support your body where it matters. Mattresses that are too soft or firm could have too much or not enough back support. A medium mattress will support your head, neck, and back without adding any pressure to other areas of the body.
Voila’s Medium mattress provides the perfect amount of support with just a touch of cushioning. Its hybrid medium-plus surface, Talalay latex, and five-zone pocket coils support your back while ensuring your head and neck can rest pressure-free.
Stomach sleepers: Maybe not so surprisingly, sleeping on your stomach can lead to more pain than any of the other sleeping positions. When you sleep on your stomach, you often keep your head turned to the side and your arms under your pillow, which can make it hard for your spine to stay in a neutral position.
When your spine’s balance is thrown off, you’ll experience more pressure in your muscles and joints, which means you may wake up feeling uncomfortable all over. Sleeping on your stomach can be especially painful if your mattress lacks proper support. Stomach sleepers would do best with a firm mattress, which can cradle your body and alleviate any pressure on your hips and lower back.
Voila’s Firm mattress is our most supportive sleeping experience, which is a great choice if you just can’t help but sleep on your stomach. High-density, latex, and memory foams give you the support where you need it without adding pain or discomfort to your pressure points.
If you’re a back sleeper, side sleeper, stomach sleeper—or even a combination of all three—Voila has a mattress that will give you the most supportive and comfy sleep you’ve ever had.
