Did you know that we spend about one-third of our lives in bed? With such a significant portion of our lives devoted to sleep, buying the perfect mattress becomes essential.


Mattress shopping is personal. It may feel intimidating to walk into a store for the first time, and there are so many options to choose from. How do you know which type complements your sleeping position?


Knowing if you prefer sleeping on your side, stomach, or back can help you determine which is most comfortable for you. 


Keep reading to learn more about different mattresses for different sleepers using REVEAL XSensor technology. 


What is the REVEAL by XSensor 


The REVEAL by XSENSOR eliminates guesswork and saves you time while mattress shopping. It's a pressure mapping system designed to show your specific pressure points. 


This technology helps you see what type of mattress can relieve your aches and pains throughout the night. You will get a visual representation of your pressure points and custom and unbiased recommendations. 


The entire process takes about 5 minutes. Your results will lead the discussion on what mattress aligns with your sleep position. Our sales associates will then recommend the most comfortable mattress for you.  


If you like sleeping on your stomach, choose a firmer mattress. 


Firm mattresses help your spine stay in alignment while sleeping. It gives a great balance of comfort and support for your joints. 


The type of mattress you choose will depend on your level of comfort. Stomach sleepers may find a memory foam mattress suits their preferred sleeping position. 


The mattress would have to be on the firmer side. Otherwise, you may sink into the bed, throwing your body out of alignment. You do not want to put unnecessary pressure on your joints in bed. 


Using the XSENSOR results will give you and your sales associate an idea of the best type of mattress for your needs. 


If you prefer sleeping on your side, look for a medium or medium-soft mattress.


Softer mattresses might be suitable for side sleepers. However, you want enough support and firmness to stay supported. You want something that will cushion your shoulders, back, and hips while keeping your spine aligned.


Too soft can cause pain in your hips and shoulders. Your body will cave in and cause discomfort. 


Memory foam mattresses are a great option for side sleepers. They provide the support and relief you need. Adding an adjustable base would maximize your comfort by controlling your positioning. 


The REVEAL by XSENSOR can determine the best option for side sleeping positions. 


If you sleep on your back, your mattress should be medium-firm. 


Finding a medium-firm type will help reduce lower back pain. Medium-firm offers pressure relief while still being supportive enough. A firmer mattress will help spinal alignment while sleeping on your back. 


You may find more comfort sleeping on a memory foam or hybrid mattress. You'll want to find a mattress that fits the curvature of your spine. Your sales associate will have expert recommendations for you.
