Starting with identifying your sleep position you can narrow down the best options for a new mattress. We've made a few recommendations between soft and firm top layers based on sleeping positions.

Side Sleeper

If you sleep on your side, you’re not alone! Side sleeping is the most common of the sleep position types. While side sleepers are less likely to suffer from snoring or airflow issues, they can still experience hip, back, or neck pain if their mattress is too firm. If you sleep on your side, you should opt for a softer bed—one that will definitely contour to the curves of your body. A mattress with softer support will relieve pressure points and keep your neck, spine, and back in alignment. Plusher mattresses with features such as memory foam, pillow tops, and Euro-Tops with innersprings offer many advantages to side sleepers. If you sleep on your side, you get to make your bed super soft!

Memory Foam

Stomach Sleepers

Many sleep problems can arise from this position in particular. Proper support for your back although you’re sleeping on your belly is extremely important, so you want to select a bed that’s not too soft and does not allow your pelvis to sink down and result in the misalignment of your spine. At the same time, choosing a mattress that’s too firm will keep your body too flat and not allow it to shape into its natural curve. Stomach sleepers can experience a nagging and reoccurring pain if their mattress does not feature at least medium firmness. Mattresses with tops that feature pressure-relieving memory foam or innersprings are ideal for stomach sleepers so that they don’t bend all out of shape.

Back Sleepers

Sleeping on your back will keep your spine in the best alignment. While sleeping on your back does have its benefits, the guidelines for selecting a mattress that’s perfect for this position are broad. Whether you prefer a firm or a soft mattress, your mattress needs to provide excellent lower back support since the lack of an arch can lead to soreness. Mattresses with memory foam, latex, and pillow tops are ideal for molding to your back, so that you don’t get misaligned. However, having a mattress that’s too padded won’t keep your back from sinking, so you want to choose something that also has a healthy amount of support. The coil or other core support system in your mattress should keep your back somewhat flat so that you don’t overdo it with cushions!

Memory Foam


Comfort layers provide pressure relief while you rest. Different comfort layering provides a different feel, so it's important to test various types to find your fit. Our products feature three types of comfort layers:

High Density Foam

1. High Density Foam

1.8 pounds of high density foam is our conventional foam layer that is 50% more resilient than many of our competitors' foams. This dense, supportive foam is excellent for pressure relief and has good durability.

Memory Foam

2. Memory Foam

Another option is memory foam. This provides premier pressure point relief, as it contours to your body to give personalized support.


3. Latex

HeveaPUR latex is an all-natural alternative that provides premier pressure point relief, with high resiliency for durability. Natural and breathable, HeveaPUR dissipates heat and moisture for a cooler sleep.


Beneath the comfort layers is the support system that distributes body weight to keep your back in neutral alignment. Our products feature three types of support systems:


1. Innerspring

Innerspring is the traditional support system that provides support with a network of coils that create a unified surface of sleep support.

Individual Coils

2. Individual Coils

Individually wrapped coils minimize motion transfer between partners. These coils provide more conformity to your body than the innerspring system because each coil is able to contour and conform to your body.

Foam or Latex

3. Foam or Latex

Foam or latex cores are an alternative to innerspring and coils, and are the best at minimizing motion transfer. While innerspring support systems remain the most popular, a technology like latex or foam may be the right fit depending on your needs.


No matter the support system or the technology, Denver Mattress® guarantees top quality and safety with every mattress. We are committed to products that are good for your health and our planet.
