Editor's Notes

January 02, 2019:

Side sleepers, in particular, benefit from thick foam options the most, as they provide enough firm support to keep the spine aligned and go easy on pressure points. Included latex, traditional memory, viscoelastic memory, and gel foam choices to cater to different preferences. For those who sleep hot or have a mattress they love but want to add a thin extra layer of comfort, we added some of the top quilted and egg crate selections.
