You met. You dated. You fell head over heels for each other. Things were absolutely perfect. Until you got into bed and discovered you were terribly out of sync.
What can you do when you and your babe prefer different positions?
This is a frustrating issue for many couples with different sleep styles. (What did you think this article was about?)
You covered political views and college football on your first three dates. But “Are you a side or a stomach sleeper?” didn’t come up organically at the time. No wonder why. Now you’re in love, and it’s too late.
The good news is, you don’t have to break up or break the bank to get comfy with your honey. And you don’t have to end up sleeping like 1950s Lucy and Ricky. You can compromise without compromising your comfort.
Here are a couple of qualities your new mattress should have to keep you both happy:
Hate to break it to you, but if your partner’s a restless sleeper, you will be too. But just because you’re a couple doesn’t mean you need to know every move your partner makes. Luckily for you, there are two solutions:- Memory foam mattresses are specifically designed to absorb motion and dissipate movement. So you don’t wake up every time your antsy sleeper of a partner rolls over.- Hybrid mattresses provide the same motion isolation and contouring as their cousin memory foam mattresses, but with a little more bounce.
Pay attention, side sleepers. Because your sleep style puts pressure on key parts of your body, you may want to take mental note. If your partner is not a side sleeper like you, you’ll want to consider getting a mattress with medium firmness. They’re designed to provide an even amount of support and pressure relief no matter which way you snooze. Hint: Hybrid mattresses are available in an array of firmness levels.
You see? You can achieve comfort karma. You can be a match made in comfort heaven. That is, if you can get past the mattress shopping part. But hey, you’ve gotten this far together, right?
And besides, you’ve got some pretty stellar mattress options right here.
