Thanks, Peter, for the quick response. I was wondering if you'd steer us in the right direction though for a new search... Is it true that side sleepers need at a minimum plush mattresses? Would you recommend starting with Sealy's Cedar Rose plush (or cushion firm) or the Cherokee Park plush (your names)? What are the Sleep Train equivalents?
Your assistance is greatly appreciated!
Hi Lisa. I don't have Sleep Train's list of names for their Posturepedics.
There are no hard rules about being a side sleeper. It's more about the hips and shoulders. One woman's hips are different than the next woman's. The mattress has to give just enough for your hips. Too much or not enough and your spine will be misaligned.
You should take someone with you when you shop. Have them look at you from behaind as you're trying the mattresses. They'll be able to see...and you should be able to feel if your back is properly aligned.
The Cedar Rose, or "G" grade, is a great place to start. The letter grading is from Sealy. Every store knows what that means, but some pretend to not know. Shop around.
