Side sleeping is the most common sleeping position. More than 50% of people sleep on their sides, either with their legs outstretched or with them pulled up towards their chest. Fortunately for side sleepers, there are many mattresses that are designed to give support from the side, ensuring a good night’s rest without aches and pains in the morning. If you’re a side sleeper in need of a mattress, this advice will help you choose the perfect one for your needs.
Look for a Soft Mattress
It’s common to hear people extol the virtues of a firm mattress, but for side sleepers, softness counts. Firm mattresses are too hard for side sleepers, who need to sink into the mattress to feel comfortable. A firm mattress can put too much pressure on the hips and the shoulders, pressing on those joints and even pushing the spine out of alignment. As a result, side sleepers on firm mattresses often end up in pain. Look for a soft mattress, or if you feel like you need a little more support, look for a medium soft mattress that has some additional heft but is still soft enough to let you sink in.
Opt for Latex Memory Foam
Memory foam is a good option for side sleepers, since it contours to the body and cradles you, giving you the right mix of support and softness. However, many side sleepers find traditional memory foam too hot. Latex memory foam offers the best of both worlds, because it allows air to circulate. Latex also keeps its shape more than traditional memory foam, so it is less likely to develop the permanent depressions that traditional memory foam often develops.

When picking a mattress, the firmness of the mattress is likely to be one of the most significant factors that you consider. Many people who experience back pain or other kinds of discomfort look for the support of a firm mattress, but other people may find that
a firmmattress are too hard to give them any kind of relief. Soft mattresses are not right for everyone, but they are the perfect fit for some—could they be right for you?
Soft mattresses are ideal for people who weigh under 200 pounds, since they may not weigh enough to sink into a firm mattress. The lighter someone is, the softer the mattress they can tolerate. Side sleepers also do well on soft mattresses and are more likely to find them comfortable than back sleepers.
Mancini’s Sleepworld has mattresses ranging from very soft to very firm, so there is something in our 33 mattress stores for every kind of sleeper. You can learn more about our selection by calling (800) 647-5337.
If you decide to get an adjustable bed, you will need an adjustable mattress to go with it. Every mattress does not work with adjustable bed frames, so it’s important to make sure the mattress you’re considering is appropriate. Once you find compatible models, many of the same factors that you consider when you choose traditional mattresses also
applyto adjustable mattresses as well. Here is what you need to know.
Look Beyond Innerspring
Innerspring mattresses and adjustable bed bases are usually not a good fit. Most innerspring mattresses will not bend the way that is necessary for an adjustable base. You need something that can bend with the bed base and that will hold its shape, and innersprings will fight to go back to a flat position, leaving you fighting your mattress all night. Latex and memory foam are usually the best choices for adjustable bases, since they are flexible enough to bend.
Think About the Adjustable Positions
In addition to the general flexibility of a mattress, you should consider how well the mattress supports you in the positions you think you will use the adjustable base most often. For example, if you think you will be elevating your legs and sleeping on your back, the mattress you want may be different than if you want your adjustable bed mostly for propping up to watch TV or read without pillows. Test out the bed in a few different positions, so you can be sure the mattress works for all of them.
Consider Your Preferences
Just as when you’re choosing a mattress for a traditional bed, you should consider things like firmness and size. Don’t forget to also consider factors like allergies, back pain, and other things that can impact the comfort of your mattress.
Mancini’s Sleepworld offers a huge variety of adjustable mattresses from brands like Sealy, Tempurpedic, Beautyrest, and much more. Visit one of our 33 San Francisco area locations or call (800) 647-5337.
If you’ve recently purchased a new mattress, you will naturally want to protect your investment and keep it looking like new for as long as possible. You can clean the bed and lift stains by using some common household ingredients. When you watch the following video, you’ll get the recipe for this homemade cleaning solution.
It involves mixing baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, and liquid dish detergent together. After you pour the mixture into a clean spray bottle, shake it well and immediately apply it to the stain. Let the mixture dry before rubbing it with a dry cloth. Then, vacuum up the lingering residue.

With so many options available, it’s easy for one person to select the right mattress to suit his or her sleeping preferences. But when a couple has differing preferences, it can be tough to find a bed that will make both partners happy. You and your significant other may need to compromise.
Select the right size mattress.
Couples tend to prefer larger mattresses. If you’ve been having trouble sleeping because your partner is a restless sleeper who ventures onto your side of the bed, it’s definitely time to invest in a bigger mattress. Queen and king are ideal sizes for most couples. However, if one or both of you are quite tall, a California king might work best.
Discuss the ideal mattress filler.
Before you can agree on the right type of mattress, you need to understand the specific differences in your sleeping preferences. Perhaps one of you is a restless sleeper who wakes the other one up with constant movements. A memory foam mattress would work well, since it virtually eliminates movement transfer. But what if the other partner prefers the stability of an innerspring instead of the cushioning comfort of a memory foam? A good compromise could be a hybrid bed that features an innerspring base with a memory foam topper.
Push two different beds together.
When it just isn’t possible to compromise on a mattress selection, the best solution might be to purchase two twin beds. Each of you can choose the bed that best suits you. You could still use a king-size bedframe. A twin mattress is 38 inches wide and a king mattress is exactly double that width, which means both mattresses should fit on a king-size frame.
With a diverse selection of name brand mattresses, Mancini’s Sleepworld is sure to have the right mattress for you and your partner. If you’re having trouble choosing a mattress that suits both of you, one of our friendly and knowledgeable associates will be happy to help. Call (800) 647-5337 if you have questions, or visit one of our 33 mattress stores in California to view our collection of Serta, Beautyrest, and Stearns and Foster beds.
Few things are as frustrating as lying awake in bed for hours on end, trying desperately to fall asleep. If you’ve been experiencing insomnia on a long-term basis, it might be time to talk to your doctor about what might be causing it. Medical treatments may help break the cycle of sleeplessness. There are also plenty of tricks you can try at home to beat your insomnia, starting with replacing your old, worn-out mattress.
Visit a mattress store.
Sleep is so important for your health. When you’re chronically sleep deprived, you’re placing yourself at a higher risk of diseases like obesity and high blood pressure. Quality sleep is worth making an investment, so visit a mattress store to shop for a bed that will cradle you in comfort all night long.
Get away from screens.
Many people like to watch TV before going to bed, and many of them keep their smartphones next to the bed. If this describes you, it’s time to reduce your exposure to screens. Shut off your electronic devices, including your smartphone, at least an hour before bedtime. If you have a TV in your bedroom, move it somewhere else. Instead, spend the time reading a book or a magazine, or doing some gentle yoga moves.
Stick to the same schedule.
One of the reasons why so many people struggle with insomnia is that they follow different schedules on the weekends compared to the work week. Get into the habit of waking up and going to bed at the same time every day, even if you’re on vacation. Your brain will get accustomed to the routine, and you’ll be rewarded with better sleep.
People who struggle with insomnia sometimes resort to a nightcap to help themselves drift off to sleep. Although alcohol might help you fall to sleep initially, it has a tendency to wake you up throughout the night. Skip the alcoholic beverage and instead relax with a cup of decaffeinated tea.

Before you head to a furniture and mattress store to pick out a new recliner, you should have a firm idea of what you’re looking for. Space is one of the most important considerations. Measure the length and width of the space you’ve designated for the new recliner. Write these numbers down to make your search at the furniture and mattress store more productive.
Then, take a step back and consider the room as a whole. What is your existing décor like? Do you have a flowered couch or a leather sofa? Is the room light and airy or cozy and comfortable? You might want to take a few pictures with your smartphone. At the store, you can view the pictures and visualize how a particular recliner would look in that space.
You’ll find every type of recliner imaginable at Mancini’s Sleepworld—from power lift chairs to space-saving chairs to swivel rockers. Visit one of our 33 furniture and mattress stores in northern California or call a friendly associate at (800) 647-5337 to inquire about our current inventory.
Futons are perfect for studio apartments, guest rooms, and many other places, thanks to their dual-usage design. Finding the right mattress is key to getting the most use out of your futon, and since it has to be used as both a seating cushion and a traditional mattress, there are lots of things to consider. Here are some of the things to keep in mind when selecting a mattress for a futon. Start by considering how often your futon will be used as a bed as opposed to seating. If you’ll only be using it as a bed occasionally, focus more on the feel of the mattress for seating rather than sleeping. The thickness of the mattress will partially depend on the look of the futon itself, as a thick mattress looks better on a substantial, solid furniture base, and thin mattresses look better on modern, sleek designs. A mattress cover is a good addition to enhance the appearance of your futon and protect the mattress itself.

Finding the right mattress is always a tricky proposition, but for people with allergies, it can be even more difficult. In addition to finding the right kind of support, you also have to consider the impact your mattress can have on your symptoms and find one that isn’t likely to exacerbate them. If you’re in the market for a new mattress, here are some of the things to keep in mind as you evaluate your options. Know the Causes of Mattress-Related Allergies Allergy triggers can be far-reaching, but when it comes to mattresses, there are a few common culprits. One is the chemical components in the mattress materials. By law, mattresses have to have some kind of fire retardant, and some of the chemicals used for this purpose can trigger allergy symptoms. Likewise, the materials used to make the mattress, including foam and latex, can cause some people to experience difficulties with allergies. Check the components of any mattress you are considering, and avoid those with known allergens. Other causes of mattress-related allergies come from an outside source that gets trapped in the mattress, such as pet dander, dust mites, mold, and mildew. Keeping pets out of the bed and cleaning your mattress regularly will reduce these issues. Talk to Your Doctor If you see an allergy specialist, there is a good chance that he or she has helped other patients deal with mattress issues. As such, he or she may be able to recommend brands and materials that have worked well for other patients and suggest things you should avoid. He or she can also offer personalized advice based on your needs. Don’t Ignore Comfort Finding a mattress that won’t exacerbate your allergies is important, but don’t ignore comfort just because you think a mattress is good for your allergies. An uncomfortable mattress will interfere with your sleep just like allergy symptoms will. Take the time to find a mattress that meets all of your needs, so you can sleep soundly.
