Buying a new mattress can feel nerve-wracking. These bedroom furnishings are basics for your household, yet play such a major role in your sleep quality and, thus, your daily functioning. In addition, they are not cheap. A good quality set for your bedroom needs to last five, ten or even fifteen years.
If you are a stomach sleeper, you also must pay attention to your specific needs when shopping. You need a medium to firm model, one that supports and cushions your torso. It must also keep your spine in the right alignment to avoid stiff back, muscle pain or other problems.
We examined many manufacturers’ models and came up with our favorite options for stomach sleepers, below:
15-inch Stearns & Foster Estate Rockwell (Pillow Top Firm)
This Stearns & Foster model provides the medium-firm density and support you need as a stomach sleeper. At the same time, it is sturdy and keeps your spine properly aligned, despite the gravitational pull on your hips and abdomen. The pillow top features extra-firm coils around its edges, providing excellent edge support. Memory foam by Tempur-Adapt’s makers ensures relief on your pressure points. On the downside, some people did not like this model because of its firmness, while others complained about the pillow top quilting feeling “lumpy” in early use.
11-inch Tempur-Adapt Medium Hybrid
The 11-inch Tempur-Adapt Medium Hybrid suits stomach sleepers who want that memory foam “sinking” feeling that slowly conforms to the body. Sleepers either love this feeling or despise it. Still, this model provides excellent support with its memory foam density of 4.5 pounds per cubic foot. It also features more than 1,000 coils in the queen, offering long-lasting durability, even for people over 200 pounds. The manufacturer offers a 90-day trial period, allowing you to return it for a full refund if dissatisfied. If you choose to do so, you only pay for shipping.
13½-inch-thick WinkBed (Luxury Firm)
The luxe firm 13½-inch-thick WinkBed actually suits sleepers who favour any position, front, back or side. If you start in one position and then roll over onto your stomach in your sleep or start and stay on your front all night, you will love this one, too. It feels firmer than inner-springs but offers great pressure relief. This is thanks to the many surface micro-coils that conform to body curves under a billowy thick pillow top. The WinkBed’s pocketed springs at the base also isolate movement while supporting weight even around the edges. With these made by only one factory, it can take time to receive your purchase. But most customers consider it worth the wait, particularly with the 120-night full refund guarantee.
13-Inch Charles P. Rogers Estate SE
This option satisfies many stomach sleepers due to its alternating sides. You can enjoy one side for its medium-firm support, then the other for firmer support. Side sleepers love it, too. Extra-strong coils provide this foundation, topped by a thick comfort foam called Talalay latex. That foam is more breathable than standard types, made from a rubber tree’s sap. This model is long-lasting, even for people over 200 pounds. Like others, it offers a 100-day trial guarantee. You only pay for shipping if you need to return it or drop it off at the purchase point yourself.
The Leesa Hybrid provides stomach sleepers with the good support they need, along with pillowy comfort for your torso and shoulders. Dense memory foam rating at four pounds per cubic foot and one of the softest and thickest covers make sleeping on your stomach a dream when compared to many others at the same or lower price point. You can expect many years of wear and tear on this mattress, even if you weigh over 200 pounds. But some customers have complained in the past about sagging. Regardless, you can try the Leesa out to judge yourself, taking advantage of the 100-night return and refund policy.
