What type of mattress should a back sleeper use?

The best mattress types for back sleepers include:

  • Memory foam mattresses – a memory foam mattress is a great choice for back sleepers, as it moulds to your body shape to ensure you get all the support you need without forcing your body into any uncomfortable or unnatural positions
  • Pocket spring mattresses – these mattresses have a structure made up of hundreds of springs in their own pockets, which work independently of each other. This means they only provide support where your weight is and reduce excess movement for a better night of sleep.
  • Orthopaedic mattresses – an orthopaedic mattress is perfect for back sleepers, as it has been specifically designed to help sleepers with back pain. As such, you'll get a mattress that gives you the right support for your sleeping position and ensures you have a healthy spinal alignment.
  • Hybrid mattresses - if you're looking for the perfect blend of foam and spring mattress benefits, a hybrid mattress is the answer. They're great for back sleepers as they combine a spring mattress's high support with a foam mattress's custom support!

If you suffer back pain at night, make sure to read our guide on choosing the best mattress for back pain before looking at our range of mattresses for back pain!

What's the best mattress firmness for back sleepers?

Back sleepers should buy a mattress with a firmness rating of medium to firm. Some people might benefit from a firm mattress, but it's important to note that mattresses on the higher end of the firm scale could force your body into unnatural positions due to their lack of give.

Medium-firm mattresses, in particular, have a rigid structure that provides support but is still comfortable enough to offer plenty of sleep. It's important to note that what works for one person might not work for another, so do plenty of research to ensure you don't buy the wrong mattress!
