Is a Hybrid Latex Mattress Good for Back Sleepers?

Hybrid mattresses typically involve multiple layers that include a row of coiled springs with various tiers of foam and latex. The benefit to you, when choosing a hybrid latex mattress, is that you get to enjoy many of the benefits of latex, innerspring, and memory foam mattresses offer, such as:

  • Incredible cooling capabilities
  • Outstanding support
  • Cushioning comfort

It is the outstanding support that matters most for back sleepers, which is why hybrid latex mattresses are excellent options for people who find it comfortable to sleep on their backs. These are just a few of the reasons why.

Why are Hybrid Latex Mattresses Good for Back Sleepers?

A hybrid latex mattress, like the Eco Terra Hybrid Latex Mattress, is available in your choice of medium and medium-firm. This offers excellent support for your spine to help you maintain alignment while providing sufficient cushioning comfort, thanks to the natural Talalay latex foam layer, to keep you comfortable and cradled throughout the night.

The individual coils provide additional support to your body in a manner that provides the perfect amount of give for your pressure points. These pressure points for back sleepers include:

  • Heels
  • Hips
  • Head
  • Shoulders

While you do want some degree of softness to provide comfort for those pressure points, you don’t want your mattress to be so soft that it isn’t providing sufficient support. That’s where the latex and the coils come into the picture. They provide the firm support you need, so that your spine isn’t sinking into the mattress while you sleep.

You also want to pay attention to the materials used to make your mattress and how (and where) it’s manufactured. The Eco Terra Hybrid Latex Mattress, for instance, is made in the USA with no polyurethane, no toxins, and 100 percent natural Talalay latex. The cotton and wool in these mattresses is organic, so you know that there are no heavy metals, harsh dyes, and harmful chemicals used to make these mattresses that provide outstanding support for back sleepers.

The coils also help to isolate motion, so that your partner doesn’t disturb your sleep while getting in and out of bed at night, in the morning, or all points in between. Our hybrid latex mattresses offer edge-to-edge support, so you don’t have to worry about that “rolling off the bed” sensation if you move around while you sleep, and you never need to worry about sagging, indentations, and other problems common with other types of mattresses.

Other Considerations Back Sleepers Need to Remember

Getting a great night’s sleep isn’t solely about the mattress you choose. While the mattress does have a huge impact on your ability to sleep, and the quality of your sleep, there are other considerations to keep in mind, especially for back sleepers. One of the most important? Finding the right pillow. Consider also using a pillow beneath your knees to reduce tension and promote a more natural spinal alignment

The perfect pillow is an ideal complement to an excellent mattress, like the Eco Terra Hybrid Latex Mattress. Here’s what you need to look for when choosing a mattress to use with your hybrid latex mattress:

  • Quality materials
  • Right height and loft to fill the space between your mattress and your neck
  • Pillow that encourages the natural curve of your neck while supporting your head and shoulders
  • Medium-firm pillows with curved edges

Back sleepers have many needs when looking for a mattress. At Eco Terra, we believe that our hybrid latex mattress is an excellent fit for your sleep needs because it provides a perfect blend of cooling comfort and support for a great night’s sleep.
