People who sleep on their backs need a mattress that keeps the spine aligned without being too firm. This sounds like a simple prescription, but finding the right mattress for back sleepers can be tricky. A mattress that provides support yet “gives” around the body’s contours is important. Hybrid mattresses, which combine long-lasting innerspring support with a top layer of latex foam, are a popular choice. Lightweight sleepers and restless sleepers may prefer a medium-firm innerspring mattress, while heavyweight sleepers may find that a firm mattress resolves their chronic lower-back pain. Whether you decide on an innerspring, memory foam, or hybrid mattress, quality matters. A good-quality mattress will last about 5 to 10 years, developing minimal indentations or sags during that time.
