One of the easiest ways to figure out if your mattress isn’t right for you is if you have back pain while laying in or getting out of bed. It’s like a Goldiocks situation: the bed may be too soft or too firm. When you don’t have the right kind of support for your sleeping position, you put unnecessary pressure on your spine since it stays in an uncomfortable position during the night.
Reduce or eliminate your back pain by choosing one of these brands that are tested and approved for proper support that aligns the spine and gets rid of pesky back pain.
Titan mattress: The Titan mattress is a Brooklyn Bedding product, so you know that it’s great quality. But what makes this mattress stand out is that its specifically built for plus-sized body types that may not get the right support from other mattresses, which can lead to back pain.
This mattress has multiple layers that provide the right amount of pressure at key points to maintain the natural curvature of the spine.
Plus, the quilt-top, gel memory foam top layer keeps sleepers cool, the TitanFlex foam contours to the body for pressure point relief and the TitalCaliber coils provide extra support and reduce motion transfer, making this another great couple’s bed.
This mattress is exclusively sold online, and it ranges in price from $699 to $1,299.
Plank mattress: An ultra-firm bed can be key to stabilizing your body during sleep and maintaining the natural curvature of your spine.
That’s exactly what you get with a Plank mattress, another Brooklyn Bedding product. Now the name doesn’t sound so appealing, making it seem as if its stiff as a board.
But Plank mattresses come in two firmness levels. On one side, you get a .75-inch soft, quilted top for the firmest of firm sleeping surfaces, and when you flip to the other side (yes, it’s flappable!), you get a 1.5-inch quilted top with a 2-inch TitanFlex layer for a less firm sleeping surface.
These mattresses range from $799 to $1,499.
Sleep Number bed: Get the fully customizable sleep experience when you purchase a Sleep Number mattress. This couple’s bed is split in two so that each person can adjust the firmness to their liking.
So, if you’ve compromised on a softer bed for your sleeping partner, now’s the time to consider getting a mattress that can help both of you get the healthiest sleep possible.
Make it as firm as you like to better maintain the natural curve in your spine and reduce back pain. Then, check out your sleep quality for the night, including your average heartrate and breathing patterns, to identify whether your Sleep Number is just right. These mattresses start at $699 and go up to $1,799.
