How do I choose a mattress if I sleep on my side?
Regardless of your sleeping position, when you’re getting a new mattress, it’s important to consider the mattress type, firmness, comfort and support. If you’re trying to choose a mattress specifically for sleeping on your side, you want one that is supportive, especially for your shoulder and hip, which sometimes get sore and achy for side sleepers. The right mattress will keep your spine aligned all night long to help you get a good night’s sleep.
A foam mattress is a great option for side sleepers. Foam mattresses provide the support you need while contouring your body and relieving pressure points. We offer 3 different foam mattress options—one all-foam mattress and two hybrid foam + spring options.
The Leesa Original mattress is our all-foam option. It has three layers of premium foam for cooling, body contouring, pressure relief and support.
The Leesa Hybrid mattress is our spring and foam mattress choice. It features cooling top layer foam, memory foam and the support of individually-wrapped pocket springs for enhanced support for side sleepers. The Leesa Hybrid mattress is an expert favorite: Wirecutter named it The Best Memory Foam Mattresses You Can Buy Online and it's also Business Insider's pick for Best Mattress Overall.
Our newest Leesa Legend mattress offers a dual-hybrid pocket spring system for targeted pressure relief where you need it most, which, as a side sleeper, is your shoulders and hip. It features the same great cooling foam and memory foam and pocket springs as our hybrid, with an added layer of micro pocket springs for our most advanced support.
Plus, if you and your partner sleep differently (which many do), a foam mattress will give both of you the better sleep you deserve. Maybe you sleep on your side, but your partner sleeps on their stomach—don’t worry! Our mattresses have an adaptive feel, so they're a great choice for all types of sleepers, especially if you like to snooze on your side.
