Luxury Mattresses for Back Sleepers From John Ryan by Design
Are you someone who always sleeps on their back? Then you’ll be on the hunt for the best mattress for back sleepers.
According to various studies and experts, sleeping on your back can be one of the best positions. This is because it allows your head, neck and spine to maintain a neutral position, which makes it ideal if you suffer any pain in those areas. It can also reduce heartburn, because your head is kept above your chest.
For those who care about their beauty sleep, sleeping on your back also reduces the probability of you getting wrinkles!
There are different types of back sleepers:
- If you sleep in the ‘soldier’ position it means you have both arms fully extended with at least one leg slightly bent at the knee.
- If you sleep in the ‘starfish’ position it means you have both arms bent and extended upwards next to your head, with at least one leg bent at the knee.
- If you sleep in the ‘savasana’ position it means you have both arms and both legs fully extended.
What’s the best mattress for back sleepers?
The best mattresses for back sleepers should provide a strong core support system to keep the spine aligned. It’s really important that the lower back gets a lot of support whilst sleeping and because support is always dictated by weight, different sized people will need a different level of support. This is something the John Ryan team can help you with. Why not look at our Artisan 1500 or Artisan Bespoke as a starter.
If you get a mattress that has no give whatsoever, it will put added stress on your back. However, an overly soft mattress will mean your body sinks in too far creating pain in your lower back. So getting the balance right is important not only for your health, but to get a good night’s sleep too.
A supportive mattress is one that contours to the body, cushioning the body in the places where it is most needed. For back sleepers, it’s important to have a mattress that is highly responsive or else the natural curve in the lower back can be exaggerated. But as we’ve just said, if there is too much hug or sink in the mattress, the pelvis gets pushed too deeply into the mattress, which can also cause misalignment.
Pocket sprung mattresses for back sleepers
Because pocket sprung mattresses contain individual springs that are cushioned in their own pockets, they provide support across the whole of the body. This makes them one of the best mattresses for back sleepers. However, as support is always dictated by weight you should always take that into consideration when choosing the spring tension of your mattress. Again, this is something we can discuss with you to ensure you get it right.
Everyone has different ideas of comfort, so the main thing is to find a mattress that is supportive and comfortable for you whilst you’re sleeping on your back. At the end of the day, you’re the one that will be sleeping on it for years to come!
