How to train yourself to sleep on your back

learn to sleep on your back
It’s not easy to train yourself to sleep on your back, but it can be a simple remedy for back pain.

If you suffer from back pain, one of the most natural remedies you can try for relief is to train yourself to sleep on your back. As we get older, or even encounter aches and pains when we’re young, we may scramble, looking for medicines and doctors that can help us, but did you know that simply changing your sleep position may be a low-cost solution without the scary side-effects of a medication? (Keep in mind, we’re not doctors; don’t take this advice in the place of a medical professional.)

The kicker is that 41% of people prefer sleeping on their side. And if you’ve ever tried sleeping in a different position, you know just how weird it can feel to try to change things up (even though you know it’s good for you). However, it’s not all a lost cause. By using some training pillows, you can train yourself to sleep on your back. Here’s how it’s done.

Positioning pillows are a must

When learning to sleep on your back, you have to go at it like a soldier in attack mode – believe you can do it and have all

the supplies you need. And the most important tool you can have in your arsenal when it comes to sleeping on your back are pillows, and lots of them. You’ll want at least four pillows to start out with.

Put one under your knees to support your back. Elevating your lower legs helps your circulation and keeps your spine in the proper alignment, so this is key for minimizing back pain.

Next, put the other two pillows on each side of you (under your arms). Having pillows here supports your arms (and shoulder joints) and will prevent you from rolling over in your sleep. Some people will even go as far as sewing the pillow to their pajamas. After you’ve slept with these pillows for a week or so, you may find you don’t need them anymore. But always make sure you have knee support whenever you sleep on your back.

Neck support and a firm mattress

After you’ve figured out the best way to arrange the pillows around your body, you need to support your neck and head. For some people, a rolled up towel is just enough neck support. Other people can’t sleep without a pillow. In that case, opt for a thinner pillow to get the proper neck support when sleeping on your back. Both the Malouf Contour Dough Memory Foam Pillow and the Technogel Contour Gel Memory Foam Pillow are good options for back sleepers. It’s essential to follow the natural curve of the spine, and these two pillows both offer a shape that supports your neck without unnaturally lifting your head, which can cause headaches.

Train yourself to sleep on you back with a firm mattress.
A firm mattress supports your spine when you sleep on you back.

And lastly, make sure you have an adequately firm mattress when trying to sleep on your back, so that your body is supported evenly at every pressure point all through the night.A good option for back sleepers is the Simmons Beautyrest Black Mariela Luxury Firm Mattress. If your mattress isn’t firm enough, and buying a new mattress isn’t in your budget, look into getting a mattress topper, which can be a great alternative.

We know it’s not easy to train yourself sleep on your back, but the health benefits make it worth trying. From helping you stay looking young longer (by preventing sleep wrinkles that occur when sleeping on your side) to preventing joint and back pain, it’s no wonder sleeping on your back is considered the best sleep position.

Is that mattress “the one”? Simplify online mattress shopping

online mattress shopping
online mattress shopping
“Is this mattress as perfect as our relationship?”

Do you believe everyone has a soul mate? A perfect match just out there waiting for them? Okay, admittedly that’s a pretty lofty subject to be talking about, and the only loft we’re really interested in is the type that’s inside your mattress. But, it’s related, because we’re firm believers that there’s a perfect mattress waiting for everyone. And just like so many real-life couples these days, you can find your match online.

Finding the perfect mattress is a lot like finding the perfect relationship — there’s some give and take. In this case, it’s how much give on a mattress you can take. Choosing the best mattress, especially when you’re shopping online, is a big decision and a long lasting commitment (seeing the similarities yet?) as your mattress may be with you for 8 to 10 years. Choose the wrong mattress and you’ll be dealing with more than a few restless nights, painful mornings, and a host of negative side effects that come with not getting great rest.

But choose the right mattress and you could be looking at something that very few people ever see: a good nights sleep.

So how do you identify a great mattress? And more importantly, when you’re online mattress shopping, how do you know that it’s the right one for you? It’s not as hard you might think, and Sleep City has made it a downright comfortable process.

It’s all thanks to their Comfort Levels system.

Sleep City has identified about five different levels of comfort that are common for most mattresses, and they’ve divided those five levels of comfort into ratings from 10 to 100. So what’s the secret to the system? You can read a little more in-depth descriptions of the different ratings here.

Beautyrest Black Mariela Luxury Firm Mattress - For those seeking a firm mattress

10: Most Firm Mattress – Have you ever slept on a cement floor? That’s about what this mattress is like. No flex and give; just an incredibly firm surface. There aren’t many mattresses that fit this level, but it gives you a good place to start comparing.

Beautyrest Black Sonya Luxury Firm Pillow Top Mattress - For those who want a happy medium

20 to 40: Very Firm Mattress – We’ve moved from a cement floor to a wood floor with carpeting. This is incredibly firm, without a lot of give. But for some people, it’s the best mattress for a comfortable night’s sleep. (The Beautyrest Black Mariela Luxury Firm is a good example of a mattress in this category)

40 to 60: Mid-Range Mattress – The perfect compromise between too hard and too soft, this level of comfort might be your best mattress choice if you’re of two minds about a good nights sleep (or if you and your partner can’t completely agree on two different levels). (The Beautyrest Black Sonya Luxury Firm Pillow Top falls right in the middle of firm and soft.)

Beautyrest Black Tatiana Ultra Plush Pillow Top - For those who like soft
Beautyrest Black Tatiana Ultra Plush Pillow Top – For those who like soft

70 to 90: Soft Mattress – If your answer to the question, “How soft is too soft?” is, “What do you mean there’s a too soft?” then this might be the category for you. This is all about fluff and plush, letting you sink into your mattress on  your way to dream land. (Try the Beautyrest Black Tatiana Plush Pillow Top for a mattress with a lot of give.)

100: Super Soft Mattress – Sleeping on a cloud is generally a  figure of speech meaning comfort, but for this type of mattress it might almost be literal. These mattresses have very very little resistance. There’s not a lot of mattresses at this rating, but it’s a good place for comparison.

So what are you waiting for? It’s time to start shopping for your perfect mattress — we know it’s out there waiting for you.

What’s in a name? ComforPedic can tell you.

ComforPedic mattress

ComforPedic mattressMattress names can be confusing. First, mattress manufacturers will give the same model different names depending on which store sells the mattress. (We’ve tried to cut down on the mattress naming confusion by listing the alternate names for each Simmons ComforPedic mattress on our site.)

Then you may find yourself sidetracked by the sometimes exotic or flowery model names. Take the Simmons Beautysleep Mazatlan, for example. The city of Mazatlan is a popular vacation destination in Mexico. It makes sense that going to bed should feel like going on vacation. You typically return well-rested and tan. Your mattress should help you with the well-rested part. You’re on your own for the tan.

But there’s a difference with the new ComforPedic mattress names. They’re a little more descriptive. You can find models labeled Alive, New Life, Nourishing Comfort, and Enlightened Days. That’s because ComforPedic mattresses are built around the concept of helping you enhance your life with better sleep.

ComforPedic mattresses are designed with the latest in mattress technology. It can seem strange that something as seemingly simple as a mattress relies on technology, but when you consider that you spend 1/3 of your life in bed (at least, if you don’t have sleeping problems), it’s just as important for your bed to be up-to-date as it is for your computer operating system or mobile phone.

Micro GelTouch Beads
Gel within memory foam makes for cooler, more comfortable sleep.

We’ve talked a little bit already about how the new ComforPedic mattress is designed for cooler, more comfortable sleep. You can read more detail about it in our other blog post, but we’ll recap here. Simmons worked Micro GelTouch beads into a specially formulated layer of AirCool Memory Foam. The combination effectively moves the heat generated by your body as you sleep down and out through the mattress so you stay cool all night. It also relieves pressure by spreading your weight out more evenly. And when you change position, as almost everyone does several times a night, the memory foam springs back more quickly than traditional memory foam, so moving is easier.

As Shakespeare famously wrote, “That which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet.” Even if the ComforPedic Nourishing Comfort mattress was called the ComforPedic Model 1, it would still provide the same level of restful sleep.

A Black mattress on Black Friday – finding deals for yourself

black mattress shopping on black friday
black mattress shopping on black friday
Shoppers comes out in force on Black Friday for amazing deals.

Lots of people approach Black Friday shopping armed with their gift lists for family and friends. But it’s also one of the best times of the year to shop for those things you’ve been thinking about for yourself – like a new Black mattress, the luxury line by Simmons.

There’s a reason retailers discount nearly everything on Black Friday, and it’s not because they think you’re going to buy your husband athletic socks for Christmas. (Although if that’s your go-to gift, good for you. Practical items are much less likely to end up in the “re-gift” or return pile.) According to some statistics, as many as 90% of Black Friday shoppers are looking to buy for themselves. Perhaps not exclusively, but they’ll likely take home at least one item for their own use.

And this Black Friday will be no different. Since 2007, retailers have begun holiday discounting earlier, around the first week in November, but they still frequently reserve the special deals for the day after Thanksgiving when traffic will be heaviest. If you’ve been considering a new washer and dryer, the latest smartphone or tablet device, or a new Black mattress, Black Friday may just be your lucky day.

Simmons Beautyrest Black Mattress
Give yourself the gift of a Black mattress.

Your mattress is an important part of your daily life, and because personal preference plays such a large role in choosing a mattress, it’s unlikely you’ll get one as a gift. If you’re ready to treat yourself to a special holiday gift, or if you and your significant other want to limit the stress of finding gifts for each other, consider a Simmons Beautyrest Black mattress.

Simmons Beautyrest models are known for their durability and comfort. The Black mattresses are a top-of-the-line series that feature excellent motion separation, GelTouch foam and AirCool memory foam to relieve pressure and keep you cool throughout the night, and a 20-year warranty so you can sleep peacefully for the next two decades.

Black Friday shopping is nearly as big a part of the holiday tradition as a turkey dinner or a decorated tree. Enjoy the deals, and take advantage of the opportunity to score yourself something you really want at a price you won’t see any other time of year. Your Black mattress awaits!

Top 5 Guest Bedroom Mattresses

Offer your guests a comfortable place to sleep.
Offer your guests a comfortable place to sleep.

Are you hosting guests in the near future? Whether its family during the holidays or friends stopping by, having a comfortable mattress in your guest bedroom is sure to impress and make your guests feel happy and well-rested. When setting up a guest bedroom the mattress is often overlooked. Ever stay at someone’s home and the mattress was hard as a rock, overly soft, or lumpy? We’ve all been there. Sleeping in an unfamiliar place can make it difficult to sleep. Sleeping on an uncomfortable, non-supportive mattress makes sleeping well even worse.

While there are a lot of factors to take into account (the space you have set aside for your guests, your budget, how frequently you expect to host, who you expect to host, even where you live), we’ve gone with some recommendations that should suit nearly any home and multiple budgets.

 

Guest Bedroom Mattresses

Sealy Response Essentials Faithful Plush Mattress
Money saver

1. Sealy Response Essentials Faithful Plush Mattress – For those of you who have a smaller budget, the price point on the Faithful Plush ($650 for a full set, $682 for a queen set) is reasonable. This mattress has a medium feel that is not too soft and not too firm so it will work for almost every sleep preference. The Response coil system provides balanced, deep down support and motion separation, which may be especially important if you’ve got the cousins sharing a bed, or your sister and her three-year-old in the same room. Family time is so much better when everyone gets enough sleep. No-flip design also means less work for you. And guest bedroom mattresses should require minimal work. If you know your guests enjoy a firmer mattress go for the Sealy Response Essentials Faithful Firm Mattress for the same price.

Sealy Posturepedic Response Performance Attendance Cushion Firm Mattress
High quality and budget-friendly.

2. Sealy Posturepedic Response Performance Attendance Cushion Firm Mattress– This is a great mattress that offers incredible contouring comfort, motion separation, and lumbar support with Posturepedic Technology. Posturepedic Technology provides support where you need it most so, Sealy has reinforced the center third of the mattress with a layer of SealyCool Gel foam to provide deep targeted support for exceptional all-over comfort. With the additional support and a 10-year warranty, this mattress is going to be a good choice if you host guests frequently. Even with the additional performance materials, this mattress is still budget-friendly ($734 for a full set, $744 for a queen set). With the money you save, you can treat your guests to a nice dinner. Want a little softer comfort? Go with the Sealy Posturepedic Response Performance Attendance Plush Mattress for the same price.

Simmons Beautyrest BR800 Medium Pillowtop Mattress
Cooling comfort and strong coils system.

3. Simmons Beautyrest BR800 Medium Pillowtop Mattress – This mattress offers initial soft comfort from the pillowtop with an overall medium feel that is going to work for a wide range of individuals. When in doubt go with medium comfort. The price point for this mattress is a little higher with the addition of more comfort and durability from high-density foams and Simmons high performance pocketed coil system ($990 for a full set, $1015 for a queen set). Sleeping hot is one of the most common sleep issues. This mattress features a cooling cover and breathable, pressure-relieving gel memory foams so, your guests can sleep through the night without interruptions.

Sealy Posturepedic Response Premium Onassis Cushion Firm Mattress
Best bang for your buck.

4. Sealy Posturepedic Response Premium Onassis Cushion Firm Mattress – The Onassis Cushion Firm Mattress ($1218 for a full set, $1218 for a queen set) is a top of the line choice in the Sealy Response collection. Sealy’s most advanced Response Pro HD Encased Coil System, Posturepedic Technology, and breathable high-density foams give this mattress a firm yet comfortable deep cushioning feel that is ideal for back sleepers, stomach sleepers, and side sleepers who like a firmer feel. If your guests prefer something a little softer go for the Sealy Posturepedic Response Premium Onassis Plush Mattress for the same price. With Sealy’s highest quality materials this mattress is going to be the best bang for your buck your guests will love.

Simmons Beautyrest Platinum Haven Pines Luxury Firm Pillowtop Mattress
Luxurious and durable.

5. Simmons Beautyrest Platinum Haven Pines Luxury Firm Pillowtop Impress your guests with this luxuriously comfortable, supportive mattress. The Haven Pines Luxury Firm Pillowtop Mattress ($2050 for a full set, $2185 for a queen set) has a neutral feel that is ideal for all types of sleepers and features 1000 pocketed coils + an additional layer of 2000 pocketed micro coils in a queen mattress for superior contouring comfort and support. The substantial number of coils and high-density foams makes this mattress very durable and is also backed by a 10-year warranty. The price is higher but, if you host guests frequently or run a vacation rental home such as Airbnb or Vrbo, then this mattress will last and meet your guests sleep needs. For vacation rental homeowners, you may even get some good reviews out of it.

A few other tips for your guest bedroom search:

Consider Your Space

If you have the space, a full size or queen size bed is your best option. Twin size is great for singles or children, but it’s not very practical for couples. King size beds are a great luxury if you’ve got a large enough guest room, but your guests will likely also appreciate a dresser and bedside table. Be sure all the furniture fits before you commit to a king.

Stick with Traditional Innerspring

While an all-foam mattress might sound like the peak of comfort, not everyone loves the way a slab of memory foam sleeps. Same goes for waterbeds and air beds. Your best bet is to stay traditional. Most of the U.S. population sleeps on an innerspring mattress.

When in Doubt, Go with Firm to Medium Comfort

Bed comfort levels are very personal. Some people would be happy sleeping on a mattress with less give than a concrete sidewalk, while others wouldn’t be able to get comfortable in a ten-foot pile of fluffy rainbows and angel wings. However, while you can add comfort layers to a firm foundation, it’s really hard to add solidity to an overly plush mattress.

Clean and Protect

If you don’t clean your mattress now is a good time to start. Start by checking your mattress tag (or checking with the retailer or manufacturer) to see if there are any special cleaning instructions. Otherwise, you’re probably safe thoroughly vacuuming both sides, spot treating any stains, and letting it air out a while (if it’s a nice, dry day outside). For more comprehensive cleaning instructions checkout our most popular cleaning blogs:

How to Clean a Mattress

Don’t Forget the Pillows!

The bed is important, but its perfection can be ruined by bad pillows. It is best to get pillows that are good for all types of sleepers. You don’t want to get pillows that are too tall or too short. When in doubt go with medium comfort. Check out our large selection of pillows here.

Order at Least 3-4 Weeks Prior to Your Guest’s Arrival

When ordering online you have to account for shipping and delivery times. How the delivery process works is we order all of our mattresses factory direct from the plant closest to you. It generally takes the plant about 7-10 days to make the mattress and ship it to a local delivery agent in your area. Once the agent receives your mattress they call you to set up delivery. It can take the delivery agent anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of weeks to deliver to you depending on where you are located, how often they service your area, how busy they are, etc. but the entire process takes about 2-3 weeks. Holidays can cause extra days. Plan ahead so, you don’t have to pull out the blow-up mattress for your guests.

Enjoy your shopping, and let us know if you have any questions about which guest bedroom mattress might be best for you. Sleepcity.com is always having sales so, definitely call us at 877-246-7533 for final prices.

Bed Basics: Compare mattress coils

mattress shopping
mattress shopping
Know how to compare mattresses before you head out shopping.

So you’re shopping for a new mattress, and you need an easy way to compare models. In our last post, we talked about the three basic elements of a mattress: coils, upholstery layers, and foundation. Today, we’ll look more closely at the types of coils, or springs, you’ll see in different mattress styles and what that means for you.

Coils are the steel springs inside the mattress. They’re typically arranged in some kind of pattern with each coil evenly spaced. There are several different kinds of coils, each offering its own benefits and drawbacks. When you’re shopping for a new mattress, be sure to compare mattress coils for a good understanding of how the mattress will respond to your weight at night and over its lifetime.

innerspring mattress coils
The Bonnell coil system.

Bonnell coil – Hour-glass shaped and attached to a frame by knotting the end of the coil over the frame; also laced together with another, usually more slender, spiral-shaped wire called a helical wire. This is the original innerspring bed coil, and the simplest. Usually a lower-cost option, but less flexible, doesn’t mitigate partner movement, and shorter lifespan.

Pocket coil – Barrel-shaped and individually wrapped in a fabric pocket. Each pocket is then attached together in a grid pattern. Thinner gauge wire allows for more initial flexibility, wider middle section of coil provides firmer support. Better motion separation.

Beautyrest black pocket coils
Simmons pocket coils - springs contained in fabric sleeves.

Offset coil – Similar to a Bonnell coil in that it’s hour-glass shaped, knotted to a frame, and connected with helical wires, but the top and bottom of the coils are squared off rather than circular. The squared heads should allow for the spring to contour more closely to the body shape. Typically more expensive.

Continuous coil – Rows of coils are made of one long, continuous piece of wire. Each row is attached to the next with helicals. There’s good weight distribution with continuous coils, so they may stay in their original condition longer. Also will typically result in a higher “coil count.”

Mattress makers will usually specify the gauge of the coil. The lower the number, the thicker the wire. While common sense would say thicker wire equals better quality or a longer lifespan, the style of the coil plays a significant role.

compressed coils
The springs compress when you lie down. Ideally, the coils compress enough to be comfortable but resist enough to keep your spine straight.

Similarly, you might think that more coils means a better mattress, but it’s equally important to consider how the coils are arranged and the gauge of wire. However, it is safe to say that in general, a mattress with a lot of heavy-gauge wires will be quite firm (at least at the beginning of its life), while fewer coils and thinner wires will have more give.

Simmons mattresses, like the Beautyrest TruEnergy, use a patented pocket coil system. It flexes comfortably when you lay on it but also offers good resilience and support so your mattress doesn’t sag where your weight settles the heaviest. The biggest benefit is motion separation; your partner can flop around without shaking you out of bed.

When you’re shopping for a mattress, make a list of what’s most important, and consider how coil styles can help you get the comfort and support you need.

Empty Nest? Upgrade your guest bedroom mattress!

Guest Bedroom
Give your guests an upgrade. And sheets.

When your kids have all flown the coop, one of the best things is all the extra space they leave behind. While you could hop the trend and do something really funky with the extra room, like create a yoga or art studio, why not go the classic route and finally create the room for visitors, complete with an upgraded guest bedroom mattress, you’ve been wishing you could offer your house guests all these years?

Out of everything you brainstorm—the artwork, the soaps in the bathroom, the magazines by the side of the bed—the most important thing you should consider before anything else is the guest bedroom mattress. Guest bedrooms are notorious for having mattresses so bad that guests’ backs will hurt weeks after they’ve left. Don’t let this happen to you. Nobody wants to be known as person with the guest bedroom mattress from Hell.

But the good news? You don’t have to break the bank if you want to put something better just any old mattress in your newly designed guest bedroom. There are quite a few mattress options available that are universally appealing in function AND price.

Here are a couple of models that are perfect for the guest bedroom mattress.

Mazatlan guest bedroom mattress
A high-quality, low-cost option for your guest bedroom mattress.

Firmness and affordability unite in the Mazatlan

What’s great about the Mazatlan mattress from Simmons is that it’s a Beautysleep. That means it has the individually wrapped coils this mattress style is known for, which give amazingly good support. These coils also separate the motion between two people sharing the mattress, so if one is a restless sleeper, the other won’t feel the movement as much during the night. And the Mazatlan Beautysleep mattress provides very firm support, which is great for back support. Also…since this mattress is one of the best prices you’ll find on something of this quality, with a Twin starting at $379, the pricing for the Simmons Mazatlan mattress makes it perfect for a guest bed purchase.

Altona plush guest bedroom mattress
Altona is a more plush, and still affordable, option for your guest bedroom mattress.

Low price on the high-tech with memory foam, the Altona

If you plan on having lots of guests throughout the year, spending a little bit more on your mattress probably won’t hurt.  If you want to offer your guests a bed that has some of the latest advancements in mattress technology, but at a price that isn’t too sky high, definitely check out the Beautyrest Altona Plush Mattress. This mattress offers a medium sleep surface and has Beautyrest’s super pocketed coil springs.  What’s really exciting, though, is that the Altona has Transflexion Comfort Technology, so your guests will be comfortable the moment they hit the mattress. It also has Visco memory foam, which will support your guests’ spine and body through the night. One more bonus—this mattress never needs to be flipped.

It feels good to host friends and family in your home, and your guests will appreciate great sleep. These mattresses make sure your visitors have a comfortable, supportive surface without breaking your budget.
