For people who prefer to sleep on their side, memory foam mattresses are highly recommended. One of the main advantages of memory foam is that it contours to the shape of your body and your position as you sleep. So if you're a side sleeper, you will get all the hip and shoulder support that you need. Memory foam also tends to last longer as it many layers of foam.

2. Gel

A Gel mattress usually refers to a foam mattress with gel in one layer. This mattress is great for the hot climate in India as it absorbs heat.

3. Pillow tops

The pillow top mattress is actually an additional layer of upholstery which you can add to your existing mattress. They have a similar effect as memory foam and provide the perfect support for side sleepers.

4. Innerspring

This mattress uses an internal support of metal springs. The quality of the mattress can be measured by how many coils it contains as the coils determine how well the mattress takes the shape of your body. People who sleep on their back, tummy or side will do well with a innerspring mattress.

5. Latex mattresses

Latex mattresses offer many different levels of firmness and softness to accommodate to all kinds of needs. Another advantage is that it's lighter compared to memory foam and innerspring mattresses.
