MEDIUM - MEDIUM FIRM mattresses and futons are ideal for side sleepers. Medium to medium-firm offers firm support while soft enough to provide conforming ability for your shoulders, hips, knees, and is generally a perfect firmness for small to average sized people. If you are a side sleeper our mattress will contour to the curves of your body, for men, woman, and children. Medium Firm will allow just the right amount to relieve pressure points and keep your spine, neck, and back aligned. If you weigh more than 230 lbs. we recommend firm to extra firm mattresses for optimal support. Tummy sleepers need medium to firm mattresses because you need to keep your spine properly aligned but the mattress must be forgiving enough to reduce pressure on your stomach and rib area. Therefore you need a mattress not to firm and not to soft.
Buying a mattress without lying on it is easier than you may think. Even if you get the opportunity to lie on a mattress in a store it is not the same as an eight hour slumber. The Futon Shop manufactures 45 custom mattresses to meet your precise characteristics, height, weight, age, and sleeping position. So call us and let our snooze specialist examine your needs and sleep positions and let us make a recommendation. We stand behind that recommendation with the best 30-day, Comfort Guarantee.

Mattresses for back problems
There is no single mattress style or type that works for all people. Although any mattress that helps someone sleep without pain and stiffness is the best mattress for that individual. A good mattress should provide back support for the natural curves and alignment of the spine. What mattress is best if I have back problems?
Latex sinks in just like memory foam, but always provides a reflex. This provides great back support but tends to be a little bouncy. With that being said, you should expect better motion isolation than that provided by connected innersprings or foam. The degree of motion isolation will depend on the thickness, density, and type of latex. Learn more about Motion Isolation.
