One of the most popular sleeping positions, sleeping on your side requires sufficient support and pressure relief to prevent tossing and turning throughout the night. You may also need to choose a contoured pillow for maximum comfort.

Choose the right mattress

If you are a side sleeper, it can be difficult to know whether you should be sleeping on a firm, medium or plush mattress. We explain why a firm mattress may not suit you, and what to look for as a side sleeper.

Pair with a contoured pillow

Your pillow can also contribute to your sleep health and posture. Choose a pillow designed to appropriately support your neck and shoulders, especially when lying on your side.

Understanding firmness options

The comfort of your mattress may have a direct impact on the quality of your rest. Depending on your typical sleep position, you may be suited to softer layers rather than a firm option. Explore our options from ultra plush to ultra firm.
