The Best Bedding Essentials for Back Sleepers

The Best Bedding Essentials for Back Sleepers

If you’re part of the eight percent of adults who sleep on their backs, congratulations. “By far the healthiest option for most people, sleeping on your back allows your head, neck, and spine to rest in a neutral position,” says the National Sleep Foundation. “This means that there’s no extra pressure on those areas, so you’re less likely to experience pain. Sleeping facing the ceiling is also ideal for warding off acid reflux.”

1. Eden Pillow

Since back sleepers don’t need as high a loft as side or rotation sleepers, you should aim for a supportive yet low-loft pillow. This tends to be an anomaly, as many low loft pillows are simply flat and unsupportive, but our Eden Pillow fits the bill. The gel-infused memory foam also gives a cooling effect, something a lot of back sleepers need.

2. Four Position Support Pillow

Also on the short list of cons for back sleepers is potential lower back pain, which can lead to major issues for some people. Using a pillow specifically designed to go under your knees helps you maintain the natural curve of your lower back, preventing strain. Our Four Position Support Pillow is engineered with a removable foam insert, so you can adjust it to the proper height for your body.

3. Mattress Protector

Another less-than-desirable side effect of sleeping on your back? Night sweats. Not the worst thing in the world, but certainly not pleasant. It’s always a sound idea to get yourself a mattress protector, especially one that’s water (and sweat!) proof. Our Ultra Luxe Waterproof Mattress Protector has all the benefits of being 100% waterproof, without that weird crinkly plastic feeling.
