Featured on Well+Good: The Best Mattress for Side Sleepers

Mattress technology has exploded in recent years, so sometimes it feels a little overwhelming when finding the perfect mattress for YOU! This is why we have a team of Bedding Experts at every location to help guide you in the process but that is neither here nor there for this conversation. While perusing Apple News the other week, I came across this article from Well+Good about the best mattress for side sleepers. It’s entirely focused on Bed-in-the-Box mattresses that live mainly online, so while limited in scope they do have some super helpful insights for side sleepers.

To get appropriate pressure relief and the correct spinal alignment, side sleepers need a mattress that is somewhere between slightly soft and medium firm.

Our Bedding Experts have found the same thing when fitting customers for a mattress, the medium comfort level is the ideal fit for side sleepers. We have a large assortment of medium mattresses from Beautyrest, Serta, Tempur-Pedic, and more, but there is actually one crossover from the Well+Good article and our expansive mattress selection.

Purple Hybrid Mattress… this mattress from Purple features the company’s unique technology that it also uses in its popular seat cushions, pillows, pet beds, and other products. “The Grid” is made from a flexible, stretchy material called GelFlex, which Purple describes as “an instantly adapting and rebounding comfort layer” that allows air flow and lets your body heat escape. Another feature that helps keep you cool is the super breathable side panels that let air circulate.

Plus, you can try it before you buy at a Gardner White showroom. If you don’t think it’s the right match, don’t worry. Our Bedding Experts can help you find exactly what you need… side sleeper or not.
