Stearns & Foster Estate Rockwell (Pillow Top Firm)

Stearns & Foster Estate Rockwell (Pillow Top Firm)

Extra support with pressure relief

This lofty, upscale-looking bed updates the strong support you might expect from a classic innerspring by adding memory-foam cushion. Its prominent quilting style isn’t for everyone, though.

The 15-inch Stearns & Foster Estate Rockwell (Pillow Top Firm) is a sturdy, medium-firm mattress that should keep your spine properly aligned if you’re a stomach-sleeper, even as gravity pulls your hips and belly downward. Extra-firm coils around the perimeter make for great edge support. At the same time, the quilted pillow top—with a touch of memory foam created by the makers of the Tempur-Adapt, our foam pick—offers cradling pressure relief, too. Testers who didn’t like the mattress either said it was “too firm” or that the tight quilting made it feel “lumpy.” Return policies depend on where you purchase the mattress.

Tempur-Adapt (Medium Hybrid)

Tempur-Adapt (Medium Hybrid)

Super-comfortable but high-priced

With a luxurious, slow-sinking foam and sturdy edge support, the Tempur-Adapt feels leagues ahead of most mattresses we tried. But it also costs two to four times as much.

$2,200 from Tempur-Pedic

In our test, the 11-inch Tempur-Adapt (Medium Hybrid) appealed to stomach-sleepers who favor a slow, body-conforming, memory-foam sink. It’s a sensation you’ll either love or hate, but none of our testers could deny its supportive feel. The dense memory foam (4½ pounds per cubic foot) and 1,000-plus coils (in a queen) provide durability that should last for the long term, including for those who weigh more than 200 pounds. There’s a 90-day trial period, during which you can return the Tempur-Adapt for a full refund, minus the cost of shipping.

WinkBed (Luxury Firm)

WinkBed (Luxury Firm)

Good cushion atop an abundance of coils

A layer of firm coils around the perimeter gives the WinkBed resilience and sturdy edge support, while a thick pillow top loosely cradles without feeling sticky.

Buying Options

$1,300* from WinkBeds
(queen)

$300 off 1st purchase w/code SLEEP300

*At the time of publishing, the price was $1,600.

The WinkBed (Luxury Firm)’s 2021 update replaces the upper-layer microcoils with a 2-inch layer of polyfoam, resulting in a less billowy and more foamy feel. We think this mattress offers the support that’s needed to keep a stomach sleeper’s spine aligned and prevent over-arching. While we liked the fluffiness of the previous version, we think the current iteration of the WinkBed retains the same quality materials (including high-density foam and thick coils) that make it a good investment for stomach sleepers who find it comfortable. The WinkBed comes with a lifetime warranty and a 120-day trial period.

Charles P. Rogers Estate SE

Charles P. Rogers Estate SE

Super-durability in a box

This flippable, two-piece mattress is made with high-quality, durable materials—such as latex and extra-sturdy coils—that are rare even in more expensive mattresses. But it’s heavy, and if you want help setting it up, you’ll likely have to pay extra.

Buying Options

$1,900 from Charles P. Rogers
(queen)

$100 off w/code WIRECUTTER20

The 13-inch-thick, two-piece Charles P. Rogers Estate SE will satisfy a range of stomach-sleepers because it’s flippable—one side is medium-firm, for those who also sleep on their side; the other side is a tad firmer. Both sides get support from extra-strong coils and are topped with the mattress’s thick comfort piece, which relies on Talalay latex (a supple, more-breathable, slightly springy type of foam made from the sap of a rubber tree plant). We think this mattress should last for a long time, even for those who weigh more than 200 pounds. You can try it for 100 days, and, if you don’t like it, you can get a full refund (minus transportation costs if you’ve selected white-glove delivery, as opposed to the free drop-off boxed option).

Our pick

Zenhaven

Zenhaven

Best latex-foam mattress

The all-latex Zenhaven is $1,000 more than similar online options, but it should prove more durable and breathable (and thus feel cooler) than many foam mattresses. Good latex mattresses are expensive, but we think this one offers remarkable value.

Buying Options

$2,200* from Saatva
(queen)

$200 off $1,000+

*At the time of publishing, the price was $2,000.

The Zenhaven is a good, two-sided choice for stomach-sleepers of any weight who prefer a mattress with a no-poof surface. It’s made entirely of latex. But, unlike cheaper all-latex mattresses (which can feel like a gigantic eraser), it’s cushiony without losing its supportive feel. The Luxury Plush side (good for stomach-and-side-sleepers) is medium-firm, while the Gentle Firm side (good for stomach-and-back-sleepers or stomach-sleepers) is a bit firmer. Since latex is an intrinsically durable foam, it should last a while for most people, including those who weigh more than 200 pounds. It’s heavy, so you’ll need a sturdy platform bed or a good-quality boxspring and frame to place it on. There’s a 100-night free trial; if you don’t like the Zenhaven, you can return it for a full refund, minus the $100 transportation cost.

Leesa Hybrid

Leesa Hybrid

Cradling foam-on-coil combo with mellow bounce

The Leesa Hybrid combines sturdy foam layers with just enough bounce. It also offers better cooling and a thicker cover, compared with the competition.

Buying Options

$1,550* from Leesa
(queen)

*At the time of publishing, the price was $1,444.

Stomach-sleepers looking for good support and a pillowy landing spot for their bellies (and shoulders, if they like rolling onto their side) may find the Leesa Hybrid very comfortable. It’s designed with dense memory foam (4 pounds per cubic foot) and a softer, thicker cover than those found on most cheaper online beds. We think the Leesa Hybrid should stay in good shape for the long term for most sleepers, including those weighing more than 200 pounds. We did, however, spot a couple of user comments (by reviewers of unknown weights) that complained about sagging. You can try the Leesa for 100 nights and return it within that time frame for a full refund if you don’t like it.
