For any sleep position, when you’re looking for a mattress it’s important to consider the type of mattress (foam, latex, pocket spring, etc.), firmness, comfort and support. We understand that a mattress is an important decision—hopefully you’ll have it for years—so you want to choose a mattress that will have you feeling rested and pain-free in the morning. Back sleepers specifically should consider the mattress’ firmness. While firmness is up to your personal preference, the best firmness for a back sleeper is something not too soft and not too firm. A medium-firm mattress will give your lower back the support it needs so you don’t wake up with lower back pain.
The Leesa Original mattress is a premium all-foam mattress specifically made for support and body contouring, so it relieves your pressure points while you sleep.
The Leesa Hybrid mattress is our spring and foam mattress choice. It features cooling top layer foam, memory foam and the support of individually-wrapped pocket springs for enhanced support for back sleepers. The Leesa Hybrid mattress is an expert favorite: Wirecutter named it The Best Memory Foam Mattresses You Can Buy Online and it's also Business Insider's pick for Best Mattress Overall.
Our newest Leesa Legend mattress offers a dual-hybrid pocket spring system for targeted pressure relief where you need it most, which, as a back sleeper, is your hips and lower back. It features the same great cooling foam and memory foam and pocket springs as our hybrid, with an added layer of micro pocket springs for our most advanced support.
If you and your partner have different sleep positions (which many couples do), don’t worry. A foam mattress is the perfect compromise. Because Leesa mattresses have an adaptive feel, they're great for every body type and sleeping style, especially back sleepers.
