SLEEP PROBLEMS & SOLUTIONS
“I suffer from back pain. Sometimes my back feels worse when I wake up in the morning."
Our Mattress Professionals say: Those with back pain should look for a mattress made with materials that reduce painful pressure points on the body. Memory foam mattresses such as a Tempur-Pedic contour to your body, providing proper spinal alignment while reducing pressure points.
If you prefer the feel of a traditional coil mattress, choose one that combines an innerspring with layers of memory foam. You'll get similar pressure-relieving benefits with the familiar support of an innerspring.
“I sleep HOT! I wake up in the middle of the night in a pool of sweat even with the AC on. It’s uncomfortable and keeps me up at night.”
Our Mattress Professionals say: Many older mattresses are made of materials that don't breathe, which can worsen your night sweats. We have mattresses made with cooling gel-infused memory foam, or a layer of cooling gel. These new technologies absorb and deflect heat away from your body, regulating your body temperature and keeping you cool.
“My snoring is so loud it keeps my wife up at night. Is there anything I can do to ease my snoring & help her get a good night’s sleep”
Our Mattress Professionals say: You’re not alone. According to a survey conducted by Sleepy’s, the biggest pet peeve among couples is their partner’s snoring! One trick you can use to help reduce your snoring is changing your pillow. The right pillow will correct your sleeping posture, align your neck and spine, and open up your airways.
MY PARTNER KEEPS WAKING ME
“My partner and I wake up whenever the other moves the slightest bit. How can we stay asleep?”
Our Mattress Professionals say: Ah, the beauty of companionship! We get it. You'll want a mattress that absorbs your body weight so you're not rolling toward the middle or waking up whenever your companion gets in or out of bed. A mattress with memory foam can help. Memory foam contours to your body and absorbs some of your weight, minimizing the feel of your partner's movements.
If foam isn’t for you, a mattress with pocketed coils may do the trick. Pocketed coils (also called wrapped coils or encased coils) provide maximum motion separation because the coils are individually wrapped. Each coil moves independently, making motion transfer a thing of the past.

“My back and body are OK, but I’m waking up with neck pain. Is there anything that can help me”
Our Mattress Professionals say: Neck pain can be a sign it's time to replace your pillow Choose a pillow that keeps your neck and spine naturally aligned. If you sleep on your side, use a pillow that supports your neck and spine while evenly distributing the weight of your head. For back sleepers, extra support under your shoulder is necessary to alleviate pressure on your back and neck. Stomach sleepers need a pillow that's thinner so it won't arch or turn yourr neck.
