Why Aren’t You Sleeping Well? 

Do you find yourself waking up exhausted? Do you feel like you need a nap just after you wake up? Are you experiencing joint pain upon waking?

More than likely, your mattress is to blame, especially if there are more lumps and sags than support. Whether your mattress is hitting its 10-year mark, or your sleeping habits no longer match your mattress type, you should upgrade to a mattress that gives you the support you need for those restorative Z’s!

Why Does Mattress Type Matter?

You might think you can buy the same type of mattress as your old one, but finding the right mattress type is essential to getting better sleep—especially if you’re waking up with more aches and pains than you used to.

Depending on your sleeping position (back, stomach, or side), the right mattress type will help you get the support you need for rejuvenating sleep. Each mattress type is made with different layers of support: spring, foam, both spring and foam, or latex, are all designed for targeted pressure relief.

Mattress Types  

As we said before, the right mattress type will give you better support for the deep sleep you crave. But how do you know which type is best for you? That’s where we come—check out this quick breakdown.

Memory Foam Mattress 

Memory foam mattresses provide body-contouring support, pressure-point relief on your hips and shoulders, perfect body-weight distribution, and motion isolation. These benefits make memory foam mattresses ideal for side sleepers. If you tend to sleep hot, look for gel-memory foam, which provides a cooler sleep environment.

Keep in mind that high foam density means a higher quality mattress!

Latex Mattress 

Latex mattresses have similar benefits to memory foam with body-contouring support and pressure relief, except latex offers better buoyancy (so no sunk-in feel), is odor free, and it retains less heat. And because latex is a natural product, these mattresses are more sustainable for the environment!

Note: If you have a latex allergy, consult your doctor before considering a latex mattress.

Traditional Mattress 

Traditional mattresses, or innerspring mattresses, are the most common mattress type. These mattresses help back sleepers with full-body support, weight distribution, body-weight absorption, bounce, and healthy spinal alignment. Depending on the type of coils, like pocketed or encased coils, some innerspring mattresses also offer motion isolation to avoid jostling a sleep partner.

Remember that the higher the coil count, the more support you’ll feel!

Hybrid Mattress 

Hybrid mattresses offer an ideal balance of spring and foam support for every type of sleeping position. The body-contouring support, bounce, and motion isolation provided make hybrid mattresses the ideal compromise for couples with different sleep schedules or habits. And as an added bonus, the hybrid foam-and-coil construction promotes airflow and pressure relief, so you sleep cool and ache-free!


Pillows are just as important for getting the quality sleep you need. The best pillows should keep your head, neck, and spine in neutral alignment and support the natural curve of your spine. If your ears are in line with your shoulders while your chin is in line with your sternum, then your alignment is neutral.

Pillow Type for Aches and Pains 

To simplify things a little more, you can avoid aches and pains by choosing the pillow that matches your sleep type (yup, how you sleep is the key to everything!).

If you’re a back sleeper, you need flatter pillows with medium support to relieve pressure in your neck and shoulders. Just make sure the pillow doesn’t lift you up too much (remember: neutral alignment).

Side sleepers should look for a firm pillow with a taller profile to relieve pressure on your shoulders.

Remember that an overly soft pillow may get your spine out of alignment because your head sinks into it as you sleep. We’re well-versed in pillows—if you need help finding the best pillow for back or neck pain, neck support, or even the best pillow for headaches, ask us for recommendations you can trust!
