Best Mattresses for Stomach Sleepers

Written by: Cassie Bondie

Do you prefer sleeping on your stomach to sleeping on your back or side? If so, there are some comfort issues to consider before purchasing your next mattress.

When it comes to the Comfort Scale (on which all mattresses at US Mattress are based), certain numbers work best for specific sleeping positions. Stomach sleepers should focus on mattresses with ratings of four, five, or six. Lower ratings are generally too firm, while higher ratings are usually too soft.

Did you know that the stomach sleeping position is actually the least common? This is because the position makes it difficult to find the perfect mattress. A soft mattress can encourage your body to sink in, overextending your back and leading to aches during the day. A firm mattress won’t provide the pressure relief needed by your stomach and ribs.

Mattresses between three and six on the Comfort Scale are considered the “sweet spot” – though a rating of three is often too firm. These mattresses are supportive yet padded, keeping your back, ribs, and stomach comfortable throughout the night. Failing to find a mattress with the right Comfort Scale rating and features can lead to serious problems associated with overextending your back or applying too much pressure to your ribcage.

Here are ten of our favorite mattresses for individuals who prefer the stomach sleeping position:
