Have you got the correct mattress for your sleeping position?

Finding the right mattress for a good night's sleep

Did you know by the time an individual reaches 31 years of age, they would have spent approximately 12 years asleep? That means 105,362 hours of sleep! Spending most of our lives in bed, buying the best mattress is almost unquestionable and necessary to make our sleep journey magically swift.  At Beds.Net we understand the importance of a good night’s sleep and its vital role in human health, which is why we recommend only the best mattresses that are made with the correct materials, tailoring them to your sleeping position.


The Right Mattress Suited to Your Sleeping Position

What position do you sleep in the most? Are you a back sleeper, side sleeper, front sleeper or a mixture of all positions? Nevertheless, there is the perfect mattress out there for you. Our guide matches which one of our mattresses is best suited for your sleeping position, so read on!


Back Sleeper

Sleeping on your back can have a lot of benefits. This allows your spine to be properly aligned meaning that pain can be reduced as well as reducing wrinkles and minimizing acid reflux.  To make this position comfortable, an orthopaedic mattress is recommended. Orthopaedic mattresses are designed to gently support your back, distributing body weight to alleviate stress on the spine, relieving pain and helping to maintain natural alignment of the spine. Shop our orthopaedic mattresses here.


Our Harry faux leather divan bed with orthopaedic spring memory foam mattress is our best seller and is hand tufted to make it more durable and hard wearing. This offers the benefits of a high-quality orthopaedic mattress and the comfort of a memory foam. It guarantees the ultimate night’s rest. Which is why, if you are a back sleeper, you should shop here.


Front Sleeper

A good thing about sleeping on your stomach is that you are less likely to snore, however this position can bring about some serious problems. For example, some sleepers may experience increased spinal cord compression which heightens your chance of having back pains. A firm or medium firm mattress is recommended to provide the needed support to maintain the neutral alignment of the spine. It is not advisable to get a mattress that is too soft or too hard as it can prevent your spine from falling into its natural curve. This will cause discomfort, aches and pains. If you are a front sleeper, you may benefit from some of our firm mattresses.

Side Sleeper

A vast majority of adults in the UK are side sleepers. Sleeping on your side is also associated with the foetal position and is great for pregnant mums-to-be and those suffering from heartburn. However, this position does have some risks to it, creating more pressure points and tension on the side of the body (hips, shoulders and knees) as they are curvy. Side sleepers could be on the lookout for hip and shoulder pain but fear not, the best mattress to support, prevent and reduce stress, injury and pains are our softer mattresses.

Stacey Sprung Grey Quilted Memory Foam Coil Mattress

If you are a side-sleeper, you may need to consider the softer, more gentle mattresses. One of our best-selling mattresses is ideal for this type of snoozer. The Stacey Sprung Memory Foam Mattress is especially adaptable to allow you to spread your weight evenly across the mattress. This then relieves the pressure on the most painful parts of your body, ensuring that you have a good night’s sleep. The high-density memory foam speaks for itself, minimising aches and pains in all your joints. Grab yours here.
