Not all mattresses are built equal. Hard, soft, pocket sprung, memory foam – the options can be confusing, with some types not remotely appropriate for side sleepers.

We don’t want to be accused of laying down on the job, but here’s the six best mattresses we found for those who sleep best on their side…

Simba Hybrid Mattress, £649 (double)

Simba’s mattresses have been ecstatically received over the last few years, a hybrid of conical springs and memory foam for the best of both worlds. Hard mattresses are no use for side sleepers, with too much resistance to your pressure points, but this is soft and sinkable.

The Simba Hybrid Mattress is also heat regulating, has a removable, washable hypoallergenic surface and – perhaps the clincher – a 100 night trial period.

Rest Assured Richborough Latex Top Mattress, £809

Medium to firm is usually too hard a mattress for side sleepers, but this one has a softer feel than billed, and does a great job of moulding itself to the contours of your body.

The secret here is the Rest Assured Richborough’s blended latex filling which makes movement during the night easy, and will help protect you from the bumps and jolts if your significant other is a fidgety sleeper.

Casper Double Mattress, £593.16

The Casper Mattress range is one of a bunch of new kids on the block winning plaudits for comfort, service and reliability. It’s not purely for side sleepers but is a great compromise when you have a couple with different sleeping styles, as it has zoned support.

Durable, cool and well-priced, it’s a serious contender for catching Z’s on your side.

Emma Original Double Mattress, £454.30

Another mattress with a generous 100-night trial period (and 10 year warranty), the Emma mattress is UK made and boldly claims that it’s perfect for back, front and side sleepers.

The reviews seem to bear it out, with a new ‘Airgocell’ foam that helps distribute the body’s pressure across the mattress.

TEMPUR Sensation Mattress, £2149

A top of the range selection, the TEMPUR Sensation Mattress promises a deep sleep to those with deep pockets. Although it uses a NASA-designed foam – that’s the TEMPUR part – there’s no attempt to blind you with science. This is just a luxurious, deep mattress to sink into.

There are a few different comfort options and, while it’s more expensive to order direct, they do throw in some worthwhile freebies to complete your sleep experience.

Silentnight Memory Foam Mattress, £312.71

While sleepers with specialist demands might feel they have to spend a lot of money to rest well at night, that’s not always true. Silentnight’s Memory Foam Mattress offers comfort from a trusted brand at a reasonable price.

It has a medium firmness, memory foam that moulds to your body when you roll over and the Miracoil springs offer pressure relief too. Now you can sleep easy…
