Side Sleepers Nightmare
Heaviest Mattress Ever
Slow Moving Quick Sand
We are both side sleepers, and this mattress is wonderful UNTIL you spend more than an hour on it. It's firm rating applies only to the first 20 minutes you spend on it in the show room. Afterwards we found we sunk into a 6-8 gutter which allowed our hips to drop far below a healthy spin sleeping angle and caused all kinds of back problems in the am.
