Finding the Best Mattress For Stomach Sleepers

Unlike many of the review sites out there, I sleep test every mattress that I review for about 2 weeks. This means that I can only get to 20-25 mattresses per year, so I am pretty selective about the ones that I choose to test. Everyone has different sleep preferences and there is no one solution for every sleeper.  Let’s discuss the best mattresses for stomach sleepers!

The Pricing Table below is as of 4/12/2018.

Best Mattress for Stomach Sleepers

Stomach sleeping is said to be the worst sleep position for your health. However, if that’s the way you sleep we can still help to point you in the right direction.  Stomach sleeping position is the least common of them all.  Personally, it’s not my thing, and if I try to sleep on my stomach it is always uncomfortable. v Stomach sleepers need a specific mid-range comfort to ensure healthy, restful sleep.  Which mattresses offer the perfect alignment in such a non-ordinary position?

Top Mattresses for Stomach Sleepers

1
Sapira Hybrid by Leesa
A sturdy luxury hybrid mattress. It pulls from many of the things that Leesa does well to form a high end mattress. This mattress is designed to cater to people who feel that the Leesa may have too much sink for them. So if you are an athlete, or on the heavier side, this is a must try!Read full review
Cons
You can feel the pocket springs when you sit on the edge
Pros
Cover has the same feel as the Leesa
Avena foam layer keeps it cool
Independent pocket springs work well with adjustable frames
Designed for heavier people & athletes, yet soft enough for a petite side sleeper like me
The first bed in a box I have tested without an odor upon opening

Brooklyn Bedding #bestmattressever
In early 2018 they upgraded their signature product by adding individually wrapped coils to the mattress. It was a huge upgrade! It is made in the USA and shipped directly to the consumer. Since they don't have a middleman, this allows Brooklyn Bedding to ship out a great mattress at an amazing price.Read full review
Cons
The cover is glued to the top layers so it doesn't work on an adjustable frame
Add some handles to the boxes to make it easier on the UPS/Fedex people
Pros
You can feel the value right away. I haven't found a better value at this price.
Handles on the sides of the mattress, none on the box though.
Built to support heavier people, no chance of bottoming out unless you are really large

Bear Mattress
It's probably because I'm a side sleeper, but I have been a bit sore since I started testing the Bear.Read full review
Cons
May be a bit to firm for side sleepers
Pros
Who doesn't love Bears?
Firm, built for Athletic people

Bed Size Table

Size Dimensions Ideal For Pros Cons
Twin 38″W x 75″L Children, Single Adults (under 6 ft.) Leaves room for activites, used in most bunk beds Children will outgrow them
Twin XL 38″W x 80″L Split Adjustable bed users, Single Adults (up to 6’4″) Used in Adjustable beds (buy 2) Likely won’t fit in bunk bed
Full (Double) 54″W x 75″L Children, Single Adults, Skinny Adult Couples Will make the room look large Too small for most adults
Queen 60″W x 80″L Single Adults, Couple (average size increased intimacy) Ideal size for normal sized couples Too small for tall and heavy people
King 76″W x 80″L Couples, Couples with Large Pets Ideal size for large couples Will take up large part of bedroom
California King 72″W x 84″L Couples, Single Adults (comfortably up to 6’8″) Ideal size for tall couples More difficult to find bedding & frames
Split King [1] [2]38″W x 80″L Adjustable Frame users (with different sleep preferences) You want firm, your partner wants soft, go split king Creates a “no mans land”

Notes:

[1] Split Kings have what I call “no mans land”.  There will be a dip between the mattress.  This means that you and your partner can’t use the middle of the bed, which otherwise is a nice meeting area for couples.
[2] You need to purchase 2 Twin XL mattresses for a split king.  This will allow you and your partner to have different angles on an adjustable bed.  Also you can choose to get two different types of mattresses, as long as they are similar in thickness.

Our Rating Criteria

We use 10 categories to rate the mattresses we sleep test. Each category is scored 1-10. Unlike other reviewers we aren’t scared to give a mattress a low score if it is deserved. If I spend 2 weeks sleeping on a mattress that consistently gives me back pain, you will read about it on my review!

Packaging/Shipping:

First Impressions count right? Some of the mattresses come in boxes, and some come in over sized bags. I prefer boxes as they are much easier to move around. Some boxes have cute logos and some have really fun quotes, and yes I really made a video called box vs. box vs. box in a box. Try saying it fast three times in a row. Did you get tongue tied?

Smell

On the subject of first impressions, some of the mattresses will have a bit of an odor when they are unboxed. Most people use the term off-gassing to describe it. Some of the mattresses take a few days for the smell to go away and sometimes it is barely noticeable.

Comfort

When you lay on a mattress and it’s not comfortable that’s surely something that we should point out right? If I’m having trouble sleeping on a bed, I’ll tell you that. If I can’t sleep on a mattress I will scream to high heaven that you need to steer clear of a mattress if you have a similar sleep profile as I do (petite side sleeper). Remember, just because it doesn’t work for me doesn’t mean that it won’t work for you.

This is a key category to focus on when you are going through my various reviews. The more mattress that I sleep test the larger my comparison database gets. If you ask me about 2 mattresses that I have tested, I can instantly tell you which one was more comfortable to me.

Support

I have had a ton of mattresses which fail to give me the proper support. There is nothing worse than falling into a deep depression that you have to climb out of. Sometimes you can even get multiple sinking parts and huge mountains in between, clearly not ideal for restful sleep. I test for support with:

  • weights
  • sitting on the edges and corners
  • jumping/standing/walking on the mattress

If I fall all the way through the mattress to the ground, it won’t score very high. Conversely, if I hardly notice any sinking in the mattress it will get a high score.

Recently we added adjustable base tests to our review process. How do different mattresses stand up to the test?

Have you ever walked into a mattress retailer? Of course, you have! Did you notice that almost every mattress is now on an adjustable base? This is the wave of the future, I know that I will never sleep on a bed frame that isn’t adjustable. Sure, I’ll test different frames and foundations, but my go to sleep set will always be adjustable. It’s hard to explain, but once you try one you won’t go back. I even credit my adjustable frame with curing my husband’s snoring with just a click of the anti-snore button on my remote.

Company

With the hundreds of new brands that have popped up over the last few years it is difficult to sort through them. I’m putting in the leg work to figure out which companies are connected to each other. In doing so I can help determine the expected longevity of each of these mattress companies. If I don’t think a mattress company is going to make it in the long term, then I won’t expect their warranty to hold up. A company my promote a forever warranty, but if it closes down in six months you surely won’t be able to get your bed replaced.

  • I use Fakespot to see if companies are planting fake reviews. You will be amazed by some of the results some of these online retailers get on fakespot.
  • I research other review sites to see which ones are owned by mattress companies. For example; Sleepopolis, mattress clarity and slubersearch are all connected to Casper.
  • Community outreach by the company: I love companies that give back to their communities. If your company is holding an event for the community in the Phoenix area let me know and I’ll cover it.
  • Customer support: If a company has poor communication or support, you will read about it here or hear about it on my video reviews.
  • Warranty: the companies in our top categories all score highly in the warranty field. If we don’t think a company will be around to honor their warranty they won’t be included on our list.

Motion Transfer

When I’m standing on a bed and a wine glass doesn’t move when I walk near it, it will score high on this test. A high number is great for when you have a partner who is tossing and turning and not disturbing you. On our scale from 1-10, one is a waterbed, 10 is; wait what? There is someone in the same bed as me!

Sleep Quality

If I’m not able to sleep on a mattress, then it’s possible that you may have the same issues. This is really the most important category that a buyer should be focused on. It is nice when a bed is well constructed or made by a reputable company. However, if you can’t sleep on it, you are going to find yourself shopping for a new bed sooner than planned.

Stays Cool

I live in Scottsdale; Arizona and I’ll tell you a little secret about the weather here… It gets hot in the summer. Having a breathable mattress is a must here. There aren’t a ton of things worse than having extra heat rising up from your mattress making your back or side sweat. I’m a huge fan of talalay latex, gel infusions, and alternative construction (like Leesa’s Avena foam).

Materials/Durability

Surely what’s inside the mattress matters right? I also pay close attention to the covers. Size matters; the Casper Essential is 8.5″ while the DreamCloud is a full 15“. Almost double the thickness of the mattress, but is it double the price as well (no)?

Value

You really have to look at the prices of the mattress vs. the competition. Not just the direct to consumer, bed in a box model, but the in-store values as well. The bed in a box model offers consumers huge cost savings vs. buying from the store. This is because the middle man is cut out and the companies don’t have to pay electricity and rent.

We give each category a score from 1-10 with 10 being the highest. I am using a 10 point must system. The mattress that preformed the best in a category gets a 10 and all other mattresses are judged against that standard.

Mattress Firmness Scale

We also assess the overall firmness of a mattress from 1-10 with 10 being almost rock hard firm. Since different people have different preferences on the firm level that works best for them, that number doesn’t go into the total ratings. Here is our Firmness scale as of 10/4/17

Mattress firmness scale 2018
Recently, we noticed that just about every mattress you see in the store is staged on an adjustable frame. These giant retailers must be on to something right? So, we decided that every mattress we test should also go through a few cycles of adjustments with our adjustable bed. Currently we are using a Rize Verge. We assume that other adjustable frames will have many of the same characteristics. What we have found is that some mattresses don’t fare well on an adjustable frame, while others take a step up to a new level.

If you haven’t been on an adjustable frame you are really missing out, so we feel that it is crucial to our review process to add this wrinkle. We understand that everyone doesn’t have an adjustable bed, but if you are considering one with your next mattress purchase we feel you should be prepared. If a mattress is too thick or sturdy, it likely won’t perform well on an adjustable base. If it has interlocked coils, forget about it.

Why Buy a Mattress Online?

  • It will ship directly to you, most of the time for free
  • Do you really enjoy having a mattress salesman follow you around and check you out as you try out all of the mattresses? The answer is NO
  • Wouldn’t you rather take some time to test a mattress rather than just be lead around by the salesman to the highest commission bed he sells? Most online retailers offer a trial period of 100 days or more to test out your new mattress.
  • Same quality mattress for a fraction of the cost.
  • You have more time to comparison shop from your home.
