What Does Your Sleep Position Say About You?

SleepPosition BlogMain 01 082217 - What Does Your Sleep Position Say About You?

Your sleep position plays huge a factor when deciding on the right mattress for you. At Yaasa, we thoughtfully designed two mattress styles that will accommodate any sleeper.

A person who sleeps on their side has different needs than someone who sleeps on their back or stomach. Considering the average person sleeps 8 hours a day, that person will sleep for 229,961 hours in their lifetime. In other words, if you are getting enough shut eye, one-third of your life is spent on your mattress. We think this deserves some thought. So what does your sleep style say about you, and more importantly which mattress is the right fit and firmness for you?

The best thing about purchasing a Yaasa mattress is that you get a 100 night risk free trial to make sure it’s the perfect fit for your sleep type and if it’s not, then just try again and we know that you won’t be disappointed, and you’ll be waking every day the most refreshed and alive you’ve ever felt.

Side Sleeper

According to an article of the Better Sleep Council, about 66% of Americans sleep on their side. Those who choose to sleep on their side are known to be very open to new experiences, and they tend to be more suspicious than others. Although, after weighing out the pros and cons, they stick with their gut feeling and almost never turn back.

If you’re a side sleeper, then you are more than likely to crave a mattress that will conform to your body’s contours, while still providing enough support throughout. Our team recommends the Yaasa Soft Firmness. Our Soft Mattress is a Hybrid Mattress comprised of a supportive pocket coil base, followed by memory foam and top layer of cooling gel foam.

Back Sleeper

Those who sleep on their back tend to be on the quiet side and take life quite seriously. They like structure and routine throughout their days. Not only do they have high expectations for themselves, but also for those around them.

If you’re a back sleeper, then you’ll appreciate both comfort and support. Your ideal Yaasa mattress would be the Firm style. With a supportive pocketed coil base bottom, followed by a layer 100% natural latex and top layer of cooling gel foam it provides great support.

Stomach Sleeper

Stomach sleepers tend to be self-assertive and do not take criticism lightly. They show themselves as being sociable and free spirited. Although, deep down they have thin skin, so tread lightly when you give them any type of feedback.

If you love sleeping on your stomach, then being fully supported by your mattress while laying as flat as possible is key to a good night’s sleep. If a mattress is too soft, the body will naturally curve into those areas of less support. You will likely need something firmer throughout so you can be comfortable in your favorite sleep position. The Firm mattress style will provide enough support for your belly down dreams.

Freestyle Sleeper

Freestyle sleepers are known to have flexible personalities and have a go-with-the-flow outlook on life. They are great listeners and loyal friends who are always there to lend a helping hand. They take relationships seriously and usually put others before themselves.

When it comes to figuring out your sleep position, many of us tend to fall under the freestyle spectrum. If you find yourself as one of these erratic sleepers, we recommend the Soft mattress style.

Choose your perfect mattress online and we make it for you (literally). Remember, you spend about one-third of your life sleeping on your mattress, so make sure you take the time to find the perfect fit for your sleep style. We put our customers at the heart of every product we design, making your life more comfortable.

Whatever sleep type you may be we have the perfect mattress just for you.

Your perfect night's sleep is just a few clicks away
