What sleeping position is best for your back?

Thomas suggests making a few simple modifications to your regular sleep position to help take a load off your back:
  • If you're a back sleeper: Put a pillow under your knees to allow your spine to maintain its natural curve.
  • If you're a stomach sleeper: Put a pillow under your lower abdomen and pelvis to ease back strain.

Is it okay to sleep with a pillow under your back?

The best way to sleep is on your side with your knees bent. You also may put a pillow between your knees for added comfort. If you sleep on your back, put pillows under your knees and a small pillow under your lower back. Don't sleep on your stomach unless you put a pillow under your hips.

  • Is it better to use a pillow or not?

    Because It Will Benefit Your Neck and Your Back. Sleeping without pillows will help your back extend, and you will rest in a natural position without any consequences or aches. Using a pillow that is too soft can strain your neck muscles and even decrease the blood flow to your head.
  • Is it better to wear a bra to bed?

    Sleeping in a bra will not make a girl's breasts perkier or prevent them from getting saggy. And it will not cause a girl to develop cancer or stunt her breast growth. (It's also not true that underwire bras cause breast cancer.) Some women want to wear a bra to bed because they think it feels more comfortable.
