5 Key Elements To Look For In The Best Mattress For Your Back

Conformity refers to the mattress taking the shape of your body while you rest.  Whether you sleep on your back, side, or stomach, the mattress should mould to your body and hug your curves.  If you notice any space between your body and the mattress while you are lying down, this may indicate that the mattress is creating unnecessary pressure points on your body.  This usually happens with mattresses that are too firm and should be avoided.

The best mattress for your back should conform to your body’s natural shapes and curves.



Support is important to keep your back and body straight while you sleep.  Mattresses that are too soft will conform to your body, but will not support you in the right way.  It is important to have proper support in order to keep your back in alignment and to relieve pressure points in your body which build up during the day.  Many premium mattresses offer additional support in the center third of the mattress, which is the area where the majority of your body’s weight rests.

Finally, a mattress should be comfortable to sleep on.  If the mattress you are currently sleeping on is not comfortable, this is your body telling you that you may need a new mattress.  A new mattress that offers conformity, support, alignment, and pressure relief will be comfortable for your body as it replenishes and prepares for the day ahead.  Comfort is key when choosing a new mattress.
