    In the market for a new bed. Looked at some of the old threads, they are 6-7 years old. Looking for firm/extra firm. Stomach/side sleeper with back issues. Any recommendations? Thoughts on hybrids? Don't want a pillowtop and nervous about a memory foam. Let's hear your thoughts and recommendations. Thanks

    If you sleep on your side you definitely do not want firm or extra firm. I made that mistake. Soft is better here and memory foam changed my life once I switched over to that. How much are you looking to spend?

    I'd classify myself as a stomach sleeper first and foremost. Occasional side, but mostly stomach. Probably in the $2-3k range....

    I strongly disagree.

    Why? Wouldn't a bed that produces the most neutral posture produce the best sleep?

    I know very little about sleep science, except sleep = good.

    Side and stomach sleeper and I do absolutely prefer a firm mattress. Iíve had several memory foam mattresses over the last 15 years. The best one by far that Iíve had is the brand ďYoga BedĒ

    I just got a king sized leesa and i gotta say this is the perfect mattress for lifters.

    My previous mattress was probably too soft and Iím far less achy on the more supportive leesa. It has a top layer that feels like an inch or so of soft material and underneath its very supportive.

    Shoulder issues when sleeping on an extra firm mattress as a side-sleeper?

    My preference is the same as yours, but would you explain why you disagree, Stef?

    What has your experience been? My neck and shoulders were killing me on an extra firm.
