Dive into our guide to find the perfect mattress for stomach sleepers in 2023, and rest easy knowing you've made a choice that's good for both you and the earth.

What Stomach Sleepers Need in a Mattress

Stomach and side sleepers, often referred to as 'tummy' or 'belly' sleepers, require a mattress that keeps the spine aligned, preventing the lower back from dipping and causing discomfort. PlushBeds has mastered this balance with a selection of mattresses that cater to the unique needs of front sleepers.

The key is in the construction: supportive enough foam layers, fabric-encased coils for motion isolation, and zoned support systems all work together to ensure that pressure points are cradled, without compromising on the firmness needed to keep your spine straight. Whether you're drawn to the classic feel of the innerspring mattress, the responsive comfort of hybrid mattresses, or the contouring support of foam mattresses, PlushBeds offers a variety of firmness options to suit any body type and preference.

Each new mattress is thoughtfully designed with different firmness levels, from luxury firm to plush, ensuring that whether you are one of the back sleepers, or stomach, you'll find a mattress that is the perfect match for a restful night. With a generous trial period, a lifetime warranty, and robust edge support, PlushBeds not only promises comfort, but also the peace of mind that comes with a quality investment in your sleep health.

How We Chose the Best Mattresses for Stomach Sleepers

Our meticulous process for choosing the best mattresses for stomach sleepers involves an in-depth analysis of several critical factors. At PlushBeds, we understand that stomach sleepers require a mattress that strikes the perfect balance between firm enough support for stomach to maintain spinal alignment, and a gentle cushioning for ultimate comfort. We rigorously evaluate the firmness level, construction materials, customer feedback, and the presence of prestigious health and safety certifications, such as GOLS, GOTS, and GREENGUARD Gold.

These certifications are not just badges of honor; they are a testament to the quality and safety of the mattresses. The Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS) ensures that the latex used is organic, which means it's made without harmful chemicals, and is sourced from environmentally-responsible plantations. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is equally stringent, guaranteeing that textiles, such as the cotton and wool in the mattress covers, are organic sleep products, and produced in a way that respects both the environment and laborers. GREENGUARD Gold certification takes it a step further by ensuring that the mattress meets rigorous third-party chemical emissions standards, providing a safer sleeping environment by reducing exposure to volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other pollutants.

Our collection includes a mattress type to cater to every preference. Our hybrid mattresses combine this coil system with plush latex layers, offering the perfect combination of support and softness, ensuring a restful slumber, without compromising on comfort.

For those who prefer a latex mattress, our options are designed to cradle the body's contours, while providing enough resistance to prevent excessive sinking, which is crucial for maintaining the proper posture for front sleepers. These latex mattresses are not just about comfort; they are also about providing a supportive mattress that caters to a variety of body types and sleeping positions.

We take pride in the positive reviews from our customers, which reflect the satisfaction of sleepers who have found their match in a PlushBeds mattress. Our commitment to quality is further solidified by our generous trial period, allowing you to experience the mattress in your own home to ensure it meets your needs. Coupled with a lifetime warranty, this commitment underscores our confidence in the durability and performance of our mattresses.

In addition to our top selections for stomach sleepers, we also evaluated the Cool Bliss Cooling Gel Mattress.

Buying Guide: Choosing the Best Mattress for Stomach Sleepers

Stomach sleepers have unique needs when it comes to selecting a mattress. The right choice can lead to a restful night, while the wrong one can cause discomfort and long-term back issues. Here’s what stomach sleepers should consider:

The Importance of Firmness

Firmness is paramount for stomach sleepers. A mattress that is too soft can cause the hips to sink lower than the shoulders, leading to an unnatural spinal curve. On the other hand, a mattress that is too firm may not provide the necessary give to accommodate the body's natural shape. A firmness level of around 8 out of 10 strikes a balance, offering enough resistance to keep the body level while still cradling the sleeper's shape.

Types of Mattresses

Stomach sleepers require specific amount of support from their mattress to ensure a restful night's sleep, and to avoid any potential back pain. PlushBeds has designed a range of mattresses to meet these needs:

  • Latex Mattresses: Known for their resilience and support, latex mattresses are an excellent choice for stomach sleepers. The responsive nature of latex provides a firm surface that maintains spinal alignment, yet it's flexible enough to prevent pressure points. Additionally, latex is a breathable material, which helps regulate temperature throughout the night—a boon for sleepers who tend to get warm.
  • Hybrid Mattresses: The hybrid options from PlushBeds merge the support of fabric-encased coils, with the comfort of latex layers. The coil core offers a stable foundation that prevents the midsection from sinking too deeply, a common issue for stomach sleepers. At the same time, the latex layers on top provide a comforting touch to the mattress surface, cushioning the body, without compromising on support. This combination can be ideal for stomach sleepers looking for a balance between firmness and plushness.
  • Foam Mattresses: Foam mattresses, including memory foam mattresses and high-density polyfoam, are crafted to contour to the sleeper's body. For stomach sleepers, PlushBeds ensures that their foam mattresses are on the firmer side of the spectrum to avoid the 'sinking in' feeling, which can lead to misalignment of the spine. The foam's adaptability also means that it can accommodate different body shapes and sizes, providing a personalized sleep experience.

Each type of mattress offers unique benefits, but they all share a common goal: to deliver a sleep surface that supports the natural alignment of the spine for stomach sleepers. By understanding the distinct advantages of latex, hybrid, and foam mattresses, stomach sleepers can make an informed decision, and choose a PlushBeds mattress that will contribute to a night of deeper, more restorative sleep.

Key Features for Stomach Sleepers

For stomach sleepers, finding the best mattress is crucial for a good night's sleep and overall health. The ideal mattress for tummy sleepers should provide a supportive sleep surface that keeps your spine in proper alignment, especially in the lower back area, to prevent any discomfort or long-term issues. Here's a more detailed look at the key features that make a mattress suitable for stomach, side, and belly sleepers:

Motion Transfer

A top-quality mattress for stomach and side sleepers should have excellent motion isolation. This is particularly important if you share the bed, as it ensures that movements from your partner do not cause disturbances. PlushBeds mattresses are crafted with materials that absorb motion, offering a peaceful sleep even when your partner turns or has a tendency to move around.

Edge Support

Stomach sleepers, also known as front sleepers, often find themselves near the edge of the bed. A mattress with robust edge support is essential to provide stability and prevent the feeling of rolling off. PlushBeds mattresses come with reinforced edges, offering extra support and extending the usable sleep surface.

Pressure Relief

While a firm mattress is beneficial for belly sleepers, it's also important that the mattress provides adequate pressure relief. PlushBeds mattresses are designed to evenly distribute weight, which helps in alleviating pressure points, and ensuring that the body is supported comfortably, without undue stress on any particular area.

Firmness Options

PlushBeds offers different firmness levels, including luxury firm options that are firm enough for proper spinal alignment, yet comfortable for various body types. Whether you need a mattress that's on the higher end of the firmness scale or one with a Medium firmness, you can choose from three firmness levels to suit your preference.

Zoned Support

For back and stomach sleepers, zoned support can be a game-changer. This feature offers targeted support to different areas of the body, ensuring that each part, from your head to your toes, gets the support it needs. The zoned support system in PlushBeds mattresses helps in maintaining the natural curvature of the spine.

In conclusion, stomach sleepers require a mattress that offers a unique combination of firmness, support, and comfort. By considering these factors and the types of mattresses available, stomach sleepers can find a PlushBeds mattress that will help them sleep comfortably and wake up feeling refreshed.

Frequently-Asked Questions

  1. What type of mattress is best for someone who sleeps on their stomach?

Answer: For stomach sleepers, a mattress that offers a firm support is typically the best option. This helps maintain proper spinal alignment by preventing the hips and abdomen from sinking too deeply into the mattress. PlushBeds offers several mattress types suitable for stomach sleepers, such as latex and high-density foam mattresses, which provide the necessary support while still contouring to the body's shape for comfort.

  1. How does mattress firmness affect stomach sleepers?

Answer: Mattress firmness is crucial for stomach sleepers. A mattress that's too soft can cause the body to bow downwards, which puts pressure on the spine. Conversely, a mattress that's too firm may not provide adequate cushioning for the chest and stomach area, leading to discomfort. PlushBeds mattresses are designed with the right level of firmness to support stomach sleepers, ensuring their spine stays aligned, and they can sleep comfortably without pressure points.

  1. Can a plush mattress work for a stomach sleeper?

Answer: While plush mattresses are often preferred for their softness and cushioning, they may not be the best choice for stomach sleepers, as they can lead to misalignment of the spine. However, PlushBeds offers hybrid mattresses that combine the comfort of a plush top layer with the support of a firmer base layer, providing a balanced solution that can accommodate a stomach sleeper's need for a softer feel, without sacrificing spinal alignment.

  1. Are there specific features in PlushBeds mattresses that benefit stomach sleepers?

Answer: Yes, PlushBeds mattresses have several features that benefit stomach sleepers. For instance, the mattresses are designed with excellent motion isolation, which means that movements on one side of the bed won't disturb a partner. Additionally, they offer superior edge support, preventing the sensation of rolling off the bed, and they provide adequate pressure relief to prevent discomfort in the chest and pelvis areas.

  1. How do I know if a PlushBeds mattress will be comfortable for me as a stomach sleeper?

Answer: The best way to know if a mattress is comfortable is to try it out. PlushBeds offers a generous sleep trial period, allowing you to experience the mattress in your own home, and determine if it meets your comfort needs as a stomach sleeper. Furthermore, the company provides detailed information on mattress firmness, materials, and construction, so you can make an informed decision before making a purchase. Customer service representatives are also available to answer any specific questions you may have about the suitability of a mattress for stomach sleeping.

  1. Can PlushBeds mattresses accommodate different sleeping positions throughout the night?

Answer: Yes, PlushBeds mattresses are designed with versatility in mind to cater to various sleeping positions. Their multi-layered construction provides a balance of support and comfort that adapts as you move, making them suitable for people who shift between positions during the night.

  1. How do PlushBeds mattresses support the needs of combination sleepers?

Answer: Combination sleepers need a mattress that can provide both support and pressure relief as they move from their back, to their side, to their stomach. PlushBeds mattresses feature materials like responsive latex and gel-infused memory foam that respond to changes in position, maintaining spinal alignment and reducing pressure points.
