Best Mattresses for Back Sleepers
When it comes to back sleepers, mattress firmness makes a huge difference in comfort. Back sleepers are usually very comfortable on a medium to firm mattress. If you sleep with a partner that sleeps on their side, you may want to go with a medium since firmer sleep surfaces tend to place pressure on the hip and shoulder area thus resulting in discomfort. The most important thing to keep in mind is always your personal comfort level. You know you have the right mattress for you when you are the most comfortable. While everyone is different, we tried out these mattresses below and they were the most comfortable for us.
