The best mattress for stomach sleepers 2018

Medium to firm and pocket sprung is the way to go for you guys

TODO alt text

Front sleepers, according to Dreams, require just as much support when it comes to pressure points as back sleepers. That means their needs are fairly similar; a medium to firm mattress to provide support for areas such as the ribs and knees, and pocket springs for comfort and weight distribution. 

We believe the best mattress for stomach sleepers is the Orchard Pocket Sprung Mattress Firm. It’s medium firm and features 1000 individual pocket springs that work separately to provide just the right amount of give and support.

Alternatively, memory foam is often combined with pocket springs to provide that additional layer of pressure relief. Although expensive, the Silentnight Chantilly Mirapocket Mattress offers you the best of both worlds and is certainly a great alternative if you can afford to stretch your pockets.

If you’re not sure your budget will cover the full amount of the ideal new mattress, check out the Dreams sale where you can often save a couple of hundred pounds on mattresses for stomach sleepers. And with 0% APR credit accounts available at John Lewis, you no longer need to worry about forking out in one go.
