What to look in a mattress if you are a back sleeper?

A good mattress with adequate support is essential for back sleepers. Many back sleepers who sleep on a mattress that doesn’t  provide enough support, will wake up with pains, aches and can lead to serious problems. Before you purchase the best beds and mattress available near you, you must read our blog.


If you are one of the back sleepers, read on this blog to  learn about the qualities you should look for, when shopping for a mattress with good support. 

Benefits Of Back Sleeping


Back sleeping provides significant benefits over side and stomach sleeping. It’s the healthiest option, since sleeping on your back allows your head, neck and spine to rest in a neutral position. This means there is no extra pressure on those areas, so you’re less likely to experience pain.  Before you invest in the best bed and mattress in your area, you must read this blog for more info about back sleepers. While back pain may be caused in many ways, a mattress that offers insufficient support can exacerbate the problem, requiring longer healing periods. Sleeping on the right mattress will eliminate much of this back pain and help you to heal faster.

Choosing The Right Mattress


Choosing the right mattress can make a world of difference in your overall comfort while sleeping. As a back sleeper you must have sufficient support to maximize your comfort and the effectiveness of your sleep. Trying various supportive and sufficiently firm mattress is the primary focus of your search, which is why memory foam mattresses are not really the best options for back sleepers.


While side sleepers adore Slumberzone mattresses, back sleepers, who need more supportive mattresses, are likely to wake up feeling a few more aches and pains on a non latex mattress.


Is A Latex Mattress Good For Back Sleepers?


The answer is yes. A latex mattress is the ideal mattress for back sleepers. Before you dive in, and buy the first latex mattress you find, there are a few things you should note, to make the buying process more fruitful.

    • • Understand that not all latex mattresses are created equal. Make sure you’re buying your mattress from a reputable company that doesn’t add fillers, synthetics and petrochemicals to their mattresses. These type of synthetic mattresses can easily break down faster over time than 100% pure natural latex, but they also lack the superior support mechanism that latex  is famous for.


    • • Make sure you get the right level of firmness in your latex mattress. Quality latex mattress manufacturers offer custom mattress orders. This means you can have your mattress made with the appropriate degree of comfort to meet your needs as a back sleeper. You can even customize the firmness on each side of your mattress, to accommodate a side sleeping partner.


  • • Give your body time to adjust to your new mattress. Some people experience a difference right away. Others may take a little longer to realize they are not waking with the same stiff, sore, aches, and pains as before. Slumberzone New Zealand offers a free 100-night comfort exchange. So you have plenty of time to evaluate the effectiveness of your mattress, for reducing or eliminating your back pain. You can adjust the mattress firmness, when needed, to facilitate a better night’s sleep.

How Do You Know Which Firmness Is Best?




The big question many people have is this: “How do you know which firmness is best?” The firmness of a mattress is indicated by the ILD of the mattress. IDL stands for indentation or impression load (weight) deflection, and basically identifies the firmness or softness of mattress is. Back sleepers should consider sleeping on either medium-firm or firm latex mattresses. These mattresses offer superior support for your back and they recover quickly when you get out of bed, thanks to the resilience of the 100% natural latex used to create them. This results in fewer lumps, bumps, and indentations that occur with other types of mattress, which cause back problems in their own right as you shift, twist, and turn to avoid them.


One must never compromise with health and sleep routine because in the long run healthy sleep lifestyle keeps you away from diseases and fatigue.
