Top 10 Best Mattresses for Back Sleepers

There aren’t a lot of people who sleep on their backs. In fact, roughly only 8-10% of the population classify themselves as back sleepers. 

Though rare, it’s actually argued by some as the best sleeping position. For one, back sleeping naturally promotes proper alignment of your neck, spine, and pelvis. Plus, among all sleeper types (i.e. side, back, and stomach sleepers), back sleepers tend to have less pressure points because the position naturally distributes weight evenly.

It isn’t without cons, however, particularly if you’re sleeping on the wrong mattress. If the mattress is too soft, saggy, and/or unsupportive, your spine can be put out of alignment which can give you back pain (or, if you already have back pain, make it worse). Also, the way your tongue falls to the back of your throat when you lay on your back can make snoring and sleep apnea worse. 

This takes us to our list of the best mattresses for back sleepers. We meticulously analyzed the mattresses on our list to help you get the most out of back sleeping while also experiencing as little of its cons as possible.

There’s also a short guide to help you pick your mattress near the end of this review but, before we get into any of that, let me tell you how we chose the mattresses on our list. 

How we chose

Materials and combinations

There are a lot of materials that make up mattresses. There’s latex, memory foam, innerspring, and even air, just to name a few. Here’s the gist of it: air beds are mostly adjustable; foams come in different densities; latex is more responsive than memory foam but memory foam is more conforming; and innerspring is, well… it’s bouncy. 

Of course, there’s more to these materials but I’d bore you. What we really looked for in these mattresses are the combinations of these different materials. Ultimately, these determine how the mattress feels like when you’re sleeping on it, so this had to be on our list of priorities. 

Brand

Now, don’t get us wrong. We think there are great brands out there that’re flying under the radar. This isn’t about popularity. 

What we’re looking for is how brands treat their customers and how well their customers trust them, their products, and their services. Needless to say, the better their reputation, the better the chances of their mattresses making our list. 

Warranties and trial periods

Speaking of trusting products and services, we think a good part of that goes to warranties and trial periods. In this industry, the standard seems to be 100-night trial periods and 10-year warranties. 

There are some companies who offer less than that though. Rest assured you won’t find any of them on our list. 

What you will find, however, are mattresses with warranties and trial periods that meet, if not exceed the standard. 

Price-to-value ratio

The hard truth is that mattresses are generally expensive. So, instead of looking at just the price tag, we looked at their price-to-value ratio. 

In other words, we took a look at the mattress in its entirety – the specs, customer reviews, etcetera – and asked ourselves, “is this mattress worth it?” 

If we thought the answer was ‘no’, then that mattress automatically gets the boot. On the other hand, if we thought it was fairly priced for whatever features it offered, then it had a chance to star on our list. 

A couple of other things we considered include: 

  • Off-gassing – This is one of the most common complaints we read about when checking out foam mattresses, especially memory foam. The off-gassing typically wanes after a while but some can take up to a month, if not more. We took note of this and if it takes less time for the off-gassing disappear, we had it on our partial list. 
  • Durability – Another common complaint we read about is sagging. We want our mattresses to last years so if there were fewer complaints about durability, we took note. 
  • Unique features – We kept tabs on things like certifications, infusions, free stuff, and other things that added more value to the mattress. 

The best mattresses for back sleepers

Since back sleeping is supposed to promote a proper spinal alignment, you should be looking for a mattress that’s supportive, doesn’t excessively sag especially around the hips, and one that conforms to the shape of your body. This way, your mattress doesn’t interfere with the benefits of sleeping on your back. 

Firmer mattresses generally do the trick but, of course, it can also depend on how much you weigh (which we will talk about later on). 

Having said that, here’s a quick look at the mattresses that made the cut. If you want to know more about the details, we’ve also included short reviews of each mattress that you can read if you scroll further down.

Pros
  • Luxurious yet affordable
  • Lengthy trial period and warranty
  • BBB accredited business (A+ rating)
  • Unique coil-on-coil hybrid design
  • Multiple thickness and firmness options
  • Great choice for virtually everyone
  • Superb edge support and motion isolation (great for couples)
  • Sleeps cool, pressure relieving, and supportive
  • CertiPUR-US® certified
Cons
  • Sold exclusively on their website
  • Returns aren’t free

We think The Saatva Classic Mattress is the same kind of mattress you’d find in high-end hotels but it actually comes at a price that’s affordable to a lot of people. It’s essentially luxury and practically rolled into a unique, coil-on-coil, hybrid mattress. 

That said, this mattress comes in multiple thickness and firmness options. For thickness, it’s either 11.5 inches or 14.5 inches. The two feel identical so it’s mainly aesthetic. On the other hand, you have 3 options for firmness: luxury firm, plush soft, and firm. 

In our eyes, these options make it a great option for virtually everyone. If you’re petite or average weight back sleeper, maybe try the luxury firm option first and see how that feels. But, if you’re a tad bit heavy, the firm option might be your safest best.

Now, when it comes to design, the Saatva Classic Mattress has two coil layers. The bottom layer acts as a durable foundation while the individually wrapped coils above it reduce motion transfer. Plus, coils are inherently sleep cooler than foam mattresses because of all that airspace between them. Edge support is superb, too, because the perimeter is reinforced which makes it a great option for couples who share a bed. 

Above these coils is a luxurious Euro pillow top that makes the mattress feel plush and comfortable. The mattress is also equipped with Saatva’s very own Spinal Zone Technology which provides both pressure relief and support for your back. Plus, Saatva is a BBB accredited company with an A+ rating so you can be sure that they’re a great and trustworthy brand. 

Other features of The Saatva Classic Mattress:

  • 120-night trial period
  • 15-year warranty
  • Free white glove delivery. However, returns cost $99 as fees for labor and gas. 
  • CertiPUR-US® certified

Pros
  • Multiple firmness options
  • Great for all back sleepers regardless of weight
  • Sleeps cool
  • Great for couples (impressive edge support and motion isolation)
  • Smart design focused on supporting the neutral arch of your back
  • Lifetime warranty
  • CertiPUR-US® and OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 Certified
Cons
  • Expensive
  • Sold exclusively on their website

The WinkBed (by WinkBeds) is advertised as a “luxury hybrid bed” – and it does look the part. Unfortunately though, this opulent mattress also comes with a heavy price tag. To us, however, its price is justifiable given the lifetime warranty and all the benefits it brings to back sleepers. 

Having said that, The WinkBed comes in multiple firmness options: 

  • Soft
  • Luxury firm (medium firm)
  • Firm
  • Plus

For back sleepers, we generally recommend the firm option. However, the choice you make will still largely depend on how much you weigh. If you’re petite, perhaps the luxury firm option would be a safer choice and if you’re larger, maybe the plus option would be best. 

The WinkBed is constructed similar to The Saatva Classic Mattress – multiple layers of coils, luxurious pillow top, and technology meant to relieve pressure and support your back – which is also why it has similar benefits. 

The bottom layer of coils are designed to have 7 support zones that are either firmer (to provide support) or softer (to help relieve pressure). The upper layer of smaller coils are there to make the mattress more breathable. And, since the perimeter is reinforced and the coils are individually wrapped, the mattress has great edge support and effectively isolates movement, making it a great choice for couples. 

Moving on, the firmness of the Euro top on this mattress depends on the option you choose. Needless to say, the feel of the Euro top also gets firmer on firmer choices. For the firm option (which is what we generally recommend), this layer gives even more support but it’s not too hard that it feels like you’re sleeping on concrete. 

Other features of The WinkBed:

  • 120-night trial period. You need to try out the mattress for a minimum of 30 days before initiating a return though.
  • Lifetime warranty
  • Free shipping and returns.
  • CertiPUR-US® and OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 Certified
Find the best price online
Pros
  • Multiple firmness options
  • Affordable
  • Quite durable for an all-foam mattress
  • Free Comfort+ adjustment kit if you need it
  • Sleeps cooler and is more supportive than traditional memory foam beds
  • Lengthy trial period and warranty
  • CertiPUR-US® certified
Cons
  • Sold exclusively on their website
  • Needs better edge support

The Novosbed is advertised as “the most affordable luxury mattress in the world”. Now, everyone’s definition of luxury can be different but what we do know is that for its caliber, it’s actually quite easy on the wallet. Thus, why we picked it as our “budget pick”. 

Now, this mattress comes in multiple firmness options: soft, medium, and firm. So, regardless of your weight, there’s bound to at least be one suitable choice for you here. Plus, if you find your mattress too soft or too firm and you don’t quite want to return it, Novosbed will send you a FREE Comfort+ adjustment kit (which is basically just another layer of foam) that you can simply slip inside the covers, zip, and voila!

Anyhow, The Novosbed’s design is pretty straightforward: 2 layers of memory foam and a highly dense base layer of polyfoam.

Like traditional memory foam mattresses, the top layers offer exceptional pressure relief, conformity, and motion isolation. The difference, however, is that these foams are more dense than traditional memory and are also infused with gel. These make them more supportive, durable, and sleep cooler than traditional memory foam.

The base layer of dense polyfoam makes this mattress even more durable and supportive. However, The Novosbed doesn’t impress us with its edge support. This actually caught us by surprise, especially considering all its foams have high density.

Other features of The Novosbed:

  • 120-night trial period
  • 15-year warranty
  • Free Comfort+ adjustment kit in case you find your mattress too firm or too soft
  • Free shipping and returns
  • CertiPUR-US® certified
Find the best price online
Pros
  • BBB accredited business (A+ rating with great customer service)
  • Sleeps cooler than all-foam mattresses
  • Pressure relieving and incredibly supportive
  • Great for heavyweight and average weight back sleepers
  • Great for couples (great edge support and motion isolation)
  • CertiPUR-US® certified
Cons
  • Probably not for lightweight sleepers
  • A bit expensive

Leesa is a relatively newcomer in the mattress industry but it has quickly risen as one of the industry’s top brands. They’re also a Better Business Bureau (BBB) accredited business with an A+ rating.

Plus, we’ve seen them reach out to customers who’re experiencing issues. To us, that’s a sign of a great company and one that we’d highly recommend. This particular mattress is a little pricey though but we think it’s worth it. 

That being said, as all hybrids go, Leesa’s mattress is made up of both coils and several layers of foam. Their coils, which are innately breathable and supportive, are individually wrapped to promote motion isolation. The coils are sandwiched between two support foams which basically act as a base (bottommost layer) and a transition layer which separates the coils from the rest of the foam layers above it. 

Speaking of which, the top foam layer is a slab of hole-punched premium foam for breathability and comfort followed by a layer of memory foam for pressure relief and conformity. 

Overall, we think the Leesa Hybrid mattress offers a soft-to-the-touch, pressure relieving feeling because of the top foam layers but it’s also incredibly supportive because of the coils. Although, you might find this mattress a little too firm if you’re lightweight. 

Nevertheless, it also sleeps cooler than all-foam mattresses because of its design. And, thanks to the firmness (edge support) and motion isolation of the coils, we think it’d be great for couples, too. 

Other features of the Leesa Hybrid Mattress:

  • 100-night trial period. You’ll need to try it out for 30 days before returning it though.
  • 10-year warranty
  • Free shipping and returns
  • CertiPUR-US® certified
Find the best price online
Pros
  • Great price-to-value ratio
  • Sleeps incredibly cool
  • Great for couples (impressive edge support and motion isolation)
  • Great for lightweight and average weight back sleepers
  • CertiPUR-US® certified
Cons
  • Not sold on Amazon

Allswell has 3 mattresses to their line-up. (SPOILER ALERT! Two of them will be on this list). But, out of all three, we think the The Supreme is truly their most superior bed, particularly for back sleepers. 

First of all, it’s quite affordable considering the things it brings to the table. Starting with its bottommost layer, the coils are individually wrapped to minimize movement transfer. Allswell also uses what it calls “Quantum Edge” to reinforce the perimeter and give this mattress superior edge support. That said, the coils alone make this a fantastic option for couples. 

Above these coils are 3 layers of foam: 

  • A built-in, plush Euro top for comfort and luxury as its top layer
  • A Graphite, copper, and gel infused memory foam layer to wick away heat from the body as its second layer, and
  • Their very own Energex™ foam for even more temperature regulation

As you can see, all these foams are tailor-made to keep sleeping temperatures down. Add in the innate breathability of coils and you’ve got yourself one hell of a cool mattress. 

Now, when it comes to feel, the Allswell Supreme is advertised to be a 4.5 to 6.5 out of 10 (1 being the softest; 10 being the firmes) on the firmness scale. This supposedly makes it about medium to medium-firm but we think it’s actually firmer than that. Regardless, the foam layers help relieve pressure and conformity while the coils add the support that back sleepers need. 

We’d primarily recommend this to lightweight to average weight sleepers mainly because of the advertised firmness rating but, to be honest, we think heavyweights might find this comfortable, too. 

Other features of the Allswell (The Supreme):

  • 100-night trial period
  • 10-year warranty
  • Free shipping and returns. They recommend trying out the mattress out for 3 weeks before returning. 
  • CertiPUR-US® certified
Find the best price online
Pros
  • Rare combo of responsive yet great at isolating movement, pressure relieving yet cool to sleep on, supportive yet not incredibly hard
  • Might be the coolest mattress to sleep on (on this list, at least)
  • Free sleep mask and sheets
  • BBB accredited (A rating)
  • Free sleep mask and sheets
  • CertiPUR-US® certified
Cons
  • Not sold on Amazon (but the original Purple mattress is). Weird. 
  • Edge support could be better

As a company, Purple is BBB accredited and has an A rating. A+ would have been better but, hey, we think that’s still pretty darn impressive, especially considering how some of the companies on this list aren’t even accredited by the Better Business Bureau. 

Furthermore, we find it confusing how Purple sells their original mattress on Amazon but somehow left this, their hybrid, out of the line up. So, if you want to buy this bed, you might have to go directly to their website. 

That said, all of Purple’s mattresses come with their trademarked Purple Grid. It isn’t made from foam or coils but rather hyper-elastic polymer. As far as we know, Purple is the only mattress company that uses this type of material. 

The shape of The Purple Grid makes for plenty or air space and the material itself stays cool. The coils, which are individually wrapped to help isolate movement, also introduce even more space for air. Because of these, we think the Purple Hybrid is one of, if not the best mattress on this list when it comes to regulating sleeping temperatures. 

As for the feel of the mattress, the Purple Hybrid is the brand’s firmest option which is why we think it’s great for back sleepers. The Purple Grid is also responsive like latex and pressure relieving like memory foam while the coils make for a supportive and durable mattress. 

Lastly, we’re not saying the edge support is bad but it could be better. Still, a queen-sized Purple Hybrid should have ample amount of useable space for couples to not feel cramped. 

Other features of the Purple Hybrid Mattress:

  • 100-night trial
  • 10-year warranty
  • Free shipping and returns
  • Free sleep mask and sheets
  • CertiPUR-US® certified
Pros
  • Multiple thickness and firmness options
  • Great for back sleepers regardless of weight
  • Sleeps cooler than traditional memory foam
  • Supportive and pressure relieving
  • BBB certified (A+ rating)
  • Eco-friendly
  • Greenguard Gold, Oeko-Tex, and ecoInstitut certified
Cons
  • Okay edge support
  • An option for an even thicker mattress (maybe 10 or 12) would have been great

Sleep On Latex is a BBB accredited company with an A+ rating. This gives us, the customers, a bit more confidence that this is a great company to buy mattresses from. 

That said, the Sleep on Latex Pure Green Mattress is an eco-friendly, all-foam mattress made with natural latex, organic cotton, and organic wool. It also comes in multiple thickness and firmness options. 

Thickness options: 

  • Low profile (6 inches thick) 
  • Standard (8 inches thick thanks to an added 2-inch latex comfort layer)

Firmness options:

  • Soft
  • Medium
  • Firm 

When it comes to firmness, we recommend the firm feel option but if you’re a little lighter, the medium option would probably do just fine. On the other hand, the standard (8-inch) option is also what we recommend you get regardless of your weight because the additional layer of softer latex gives the mattress some pressure relieving properties. We do wish this mattress had a thicker option, to be honest. A 10- or 12-inch option would have been great. 

Nevertheless, the base layer of the firm, 8-inch Pure Green mattress is made of Dunlop latex which offers plenty of support for back sleepers. Latex also naturally sleeps cooler than memory foam so you shouldn’t have to worry about sleeping hot. 

Surprisingly though, this mattress has okay (not great) edge support which is typically a problem area for most latex mattresses. Its ability to isolate motion seems fairly good, too, and it seems rather durable for an all-foam mattresses. 

Other features of the Sleep On Latex Pure Green (Firm):

  • 100-night trial period
  • 10-year warranty
  • Free shipping and returns
  • Greenguard Gold, Oeko-Tex, and ecoInstitut certified
Find the best price online
Pros
  • Optional pillow top 
  • Top layer (Dunlop latex) makes this mattress incredibly supportive
  • Sleeps cool
  • Great for couples (solid edge support and motion isolation) 
  • Eco-friendly 
  • Greenguard Gold and Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified
Cons
  • Exclusively sold on their website

Right off the bat, let me tell you that the Avocado Green Mattress is one of the priciest options on this list but it’s also the most eco-friendly. So, if you’re all about saving the environment, this should at least be an interesting option. 

That being said, the Avocado Green Mattress comes with an optional pillow top. 

  • With pillow top – Luxury-plush (medium firm) feel and 13 inches thick
  • Without pillow top – Firm feel and 11 inches thick

We think both options are great for back sleepers but if you opt for the pillow top option, do know that you’ll also be paying more. 

That said, the Avocado Green Mattress is a hybrid with individually wrapped coils and Dunlop latex. The coils make this a great mattress for couples because of the incredible edge support, motion isolation, and breathability while the Dunlop gives this mattress the firm supportiveness that it’s known for. 

Other features of the Avocado Green Mattress:

  • 1-year trial period
  • 25-year warranty
  • Free shipping and returns
  • Greenguard Gold and Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified
Pros
  • Luxurious yet affordable
  • Sleeps cool
  • Great for back sleepers of all weight classes
  • Lengthy trial period and warranty
  • CertiPUR-US® certified
Cons
  • Edge support could’ve been better

For a mattress that’s advertised for luxury, this bed is surprisingly affordable, especially looking at the insanely lengthy trial period and warranty. Right off the bat, let me tell you that if you do decide to buy this mattress, it’ll likely be with you long-term, if not a lifetime.

Now, the DreamCloud Luxury Hybrid Mattress comes with a lot of layers:

  • A quilted Euro top to give it a plush feel when you lay on the bed
  • A gel-infused memory foam layer for pressure relief, conformity, and a bit of temperature regulation
  • A support layer to help keep your spine neutral
  • A layer of individually wrapped coils for breathability and reduced motion transfer, and
  • The cover which you may or may not consider a layer but it does help the entire mattress stay in place. Plus, it looks nice so why not.

The mattress is said to rank 6.5/10 on the firmness scale. DreamCloud calls this luxury firm but, really, it pretty much falls right between medium firm and firm.

Overall, we think this mattress can do better with its edge support but it does sleep cool, has awesome pressure relieving and supportive properties, and is a wonderful bed for back sleepers regardless of weight.

Although, there’s always a chance that you might find this too firm or too soft. In that case, you can always return it and get a full refund.

Other features of the DreamCloud Luxury Hybrid Mattress:

  • 365-night trial period starting 30 days after the mattress is delivered to your doorstep
  • Lifetime warranty
  • Free shipping and returns
  • CertiPUR-US® certified
Find the best price online
Pros
  • Affordable
  • Sleeps cool
  • Great edge support and motion isolation, making it great for couples
  • Great for lightweight and average weight sleepers. (Probably for heavyweights, too).
  • CertiPUR-US® certified
Cons
  • Not sold on Amazon

We said there’d be another Allswell mattress on this list, and here it is! 

The Luxe is Allswell’s mid-range option so it’s cheaper than The Supreme. However, just because it costs less doesn’t mean it can’t give back sleepers a good night’s sleep. 

From the top-down, The Allswell Luxe Hybrid starts with a copper gel infused memory foam, followed by a layer of high density foam that contributes to the mattress’ supportive properties while also acting as a transition layer between the memory foam and coils. As usual, the memory foam gives the mattress its pressure relieving and conforming properties while the copper and gel infused within the foam helps keep it cool. 

Moving on, the foam layers are promptly followed by a layer of individually wrapped coils that limit motion transfer, make the mattress more breathable and supportive, while also adding a bit of edge support (which, by the way, makes it a great option for couples, too). 

Similar to the Allswell Supreme, The Luxe is marketed as a 4.5 to 6.5 out of 10 on the firmness scale. Again, we think it’s a bit firmer than advertised, which is why we think it’s great for back sleepers. 

Compared to The Allswell Supreme, The Luxe doesn’t sleep as cool and doesn’t have as great of an edge support (both are still pretty impressive though) but we think it’s just as supportive and pressure relieving. Basically, it’s one hell of a mattress for back sleepers and it doesn’t break the bank. 

Other features of the Allswell (The Luxe):

  • 100-night trial period
  • 10-year warranty
  • Free shipping and returns. As with The Supreme, Allswell recommends trying out the mattress out for 3 weeks before returning. 
  • CertiPUR-US® certified

Things you need to consider before buying mattresses for back sleepers

Does someone else sleep beside you?

In this case, edge support and motion isolation is what you want to look at. 

If you’re a couple, great edge support allows you to use every inch of the bed which, consequently, make the bed feel larger because you won’t have to be crammed in the middle. Also, I won’t go into detail about it but I’m sure you know how a lot of intimate activities happen on the edge of the mattress.

On the other hand, a mattress that effectively absorbs and isolates movement will let you both sleep soundly even if the other person moves around. 

Now, if your pets sleep beside you (like how my dogs do), you’d probably be fine with moderate edge support since your pets likely aren’t as heavy as a full grown adult person, so they won’t be needing that much space. You’d still want great motion isolation though. 

How much do you weigh? 

Per studies, a mattress that YOU – not the manufacturer, not us, and not the salesman – identify as medium firm is likely going to feel best. 

However, when buying mattresses from the internet, you can’t actually test it out before paying for it so there’s no way to know for sure if you’re going to like it. In this case, let’s use your weight as a guide while keeping in mind that back sleepers like yourself tend to prefer firmer mattresses.

If you’re petite…

Perhaps a medium firm mattress is what you’d want to try first. If you weigh less, you won’t be putting that much pressure on your bed so a medium-firm mattress should likely be capable of supporting the arch of your spine. 

The best mattress for lightweight back sleepers: The Novosbed

If you’re larger than most people…

Then a mattress that’s advertised less than firm probably isn’t going to do well for you. Since you have more weight on, regardless if you’re overweight, extremely muscular, or ridiculously tall, you’re going to be putting more pressure on your mattress. So, hypothetically, a firm mattress should also be more supportive, making it a safe choice for you. 

The best mattress for heavyweight back sleepers: The Saatva Classic Mattress

If you’re average weight…

Then it’s pretty much a toss-up. A mattress that’s advertised as either medium-firm (but is only slightly less solid than a firm mattress) and firm should do the trick. 

We won’t recommend a mattress here because likely every mattress on this list will suit you. So, take your pick.

Read what other customers have to say

Particularly on Amazon where customers are generally more liberal about sharing their experience with the mattresses they buy, we urge you to always visit the reviews section and see if people who belong to the same demographic as you are satisfied (or unsatisfied) with their purchase. 

Tips to make your mattress last as long as it should (mattress care and maintenance)

Change your sheets about once every week

When you sleep on your mattress even for just a matter of days, the sheets will inevitably gather dust, dirt, sweat, and even dead skin regardless if it looks fresh or dirty. This practically makes it a buffet for all sorts of bugs and mites that might not even be big enough for you to see. 

Are you okay with that? No? Then change your sheets… regularly! 

Suck ‘em up! 

Those same bugs and mites that are making your sheets their impromptu dining table? Yeah, they’re likely on your mattress, too. And, even if they aren’t (yet), dirt, dust, and everything else that was supposedly on your sheets may have seeped through the fabric and onto your mattress and, soon enough, will attract those same nasty mites. 

Solution? Vacuum your mattress! 

You don’t have to do it every time you change your sheets – although if you can, go right ahead – but do try and whip out the sucker every once in a while. 

Use a mattress protector

Think of it as protecting your investment because, you know… mattresses are expensive. 

Anyhow, mattress protectors can either be tops or covers. Of course, we recommend mattress covers because they shield your entire mattress rather than just the top but it’s really up to you. 

Make sure you get one that’s water-resistant though so no fluid ever gets to your mattress. 

That said, our team likes using Slumber Cloud’s Dryline Mattress Protector because it helps with cooling and we think it does a good job protecting our mattresses from all sorts of fluids and small debris. 

Stop jumping! 

On your mattress, that is. 

Jumping on your mattress puts it under excessive pressure and, as you might expect, will cut the life of your mattress short. 

If you or your kids really wanted to do something fun, there’s always the park, a trampoline, or maybe even just outside. 

Rotate or flip your mattress every few months

Doing so helps make sure that you’re putting even wear on your mattress so no part of it breaks faster than the rest, rendering the whole thing unusable. 

However, some mattresses aren’t actually meant to be flipped or rotated. For example, if you flip a hybrid, you’ll be positioning the coils up top and that’s just not comfortable. Case in point, check if the manufacturer of your mattress actually recommends it before flipping or rotating.

Use the right foundation

As with flipping and rotating, mattress manufacturers typically also recommend the types of foundations that their mattresses are suited for. If you don’t have the right foundation, we highly recommend you get one. 

A suitable foundation complements the structure and design of a mattress. It also helps evenly distribute weight which, in the long run, can and will extend the life of your bed. 

Many of these same mattress manufacturers also sell the foundations they recommend so, if you’re confused, buying from them is always a safe choice.

Conclusion

All in all, we think the Saatva Classic Mattress is the best mattress for back sleepers. It comes from a great company and it’s pretty much suitable for everyone because of its multiple thickness and firmness options. It’s also a great choice for couples because its edge support and motion isolation are simply incredible. The mattress is also quite durable but in case you do break it, the lengthy warranty should help you cover the costs. 

Overall, it’s an awesome, luxurious mattress with an even better price-to-value ratio. 

You don’t always have to agree with us though. If you feel like the Saatva Classic Mattress isn’t for you, there are other options on this list that are probably a better fit. 

If this helped you find your perfect mattress, do share it with your friends. We want to help them, too!
