If you tend to sleep on one side with your arms and legs straight out in front of you, you most likely need a softer mattress.

"Since side sleepers tend to put a lot of pressure on one side of their body, a softer mattress is specifically designed to relieve pressure on one's shoulders and hips to minimize tossing and turning throughout the night," says Goodman, who recommends a Tulo Soft mattress.

On the plus side, sleeping on your side, rather than on your back or stomach, may be the best position for a healthy brain.
