While on the subject, let’s dive into the three sleep positions and how each type of buyer might benefit from buying the Helix Midnight.
Back sleepers should thoroughly enjoy the Helix Midnight. With support and pressure relief across the entire body, strict back sleepers should have no problem sleeping comfortably and waking up pain-free. The added lumbar support from the Luxe’s Zoned Support layer makes this mattress a back sleeper’s paradise.
Average weight back sleepers (130-230 lbs) will get the most out of the Helix Midnight, while heavyweight back sleepers (230+ lbs) might prefer one of Helix’s firmer models, like The Helix Dusk). Helix does offer a specialized line of Plus Mattresses designed specifically for heavyweight sleepers.
Side sleepers experience the most pressure on their shoulders and hips. This occurs because their centers of gravity are pulled to these two points when lying on their sides. As a medium-firm mattress, the Helix Midnight is an excellent option for side sleepers.
Weight-wise, side sleepers of all sizes should get the support and pressure relief they need from the Helix Midnight.
Stomach sleepers require more firmness in a mattress to keep their spine aligned at night. Too soft, and their hips sink into the bed, leaving them with significant back pain in the morning. Strictly stomach sleepers will want to stray away from the Helix Midnight as it may be too soft for their taste.
Combo sleepers, those who change positions at night, will be able to get away with it, so long as they tend to end up on their back or side through most of the night.
Lightweight stomach sleepers (less than 130 lbs) also might be able to get away with sleeping on the Helix Midnight, but they should still consider firmer models.
