Research about Stomach Sleepers
Those who sleep on their stomachs (prone position) are in the minority—only about 7% of the total population count themselves stomach sleepers. Compared to other sleeping positions, stomach sleeping introduces some challenges to restful sleep, such as:
- Restricted breathing
- Increased pressure on internal organs
- Poor cervical and spinal alignment
If research about the link between sleep position and personality rings true, stomach sleepers are out-going but may often feel like they’re playing “catch-up.”
Best Mattress Matches for Stomach Sleepers
While The Mattress Store cannot help stomach sleepers feel more in control of their task lists, we can provide the products they need to create an ideal sleep environment.
Stomach sleepers need adequate support to maintain proper postural alignment, but not quite to the degree of back sleepers. As a result, a luxury firm or plush mattress is often the best choice. The actual support system stomach sleepers need is different for each body. Our bedMATCH™ system can determine if an all-foam bed, innerspring or hybrid mattress is right for you.
