Koala Mattress

The Koala mattress has been one of Australia's most popular mattresses for years, and is perfect for side sleepers. It's a two layered mattress; the top is flippable so you can adjust the firmness to how you like it. 

The bottom layer is a zoned support foam. The zonal support helps your body adjust to the mattress and eases pressure points. 

Koala mattresses excel when it comes to partner disturbance. No matter how much your significant other turns and tosses, you won't feel a thing. Also, you won't wake up your partner or they won't wake you up if you get up in the middle of the night. 

Deliveries take 4 hours in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, and Adelaide (faster than Amazon). Everywhere else, delivery is still fast and free. To top it off, you get a 120-night trial and a 10-year warranty.

Emma Original

A high-quality mattress for side sleepers is the Emma Original Mattress, which is extremely popular in the Australian market. We love its climate-control design and elastic mattress cover that help users with their sleeping position. Moreover, the designers have added an ergonomic support foam that adjusts to your body shape for a snug experience.

Now, users have complained about slipping when using a gel memory foam mattress, but you have no reason to worry when using this Emma mattress. Its breathable fabric has anti-slip elements that provide pressure relief, thereby proving perfect for both stomach sleepers and side sleepers alike.

Moving on, if you tend to sweat more while sleeping, the ec0-friendly foam absorbs moisture to keep the bed dry and deliver comfort for hot sleepers. Speaking of comfort, its 7-zone foam is bouncy but does not disturb your partner if you decide to change your sleep position.

Origin Hybrid

Our next recommendation is the Origin Hybrid Mattress - one of the best gel memory foam mattresses available out there. It has 6-foam layers, which give it the edge over other mattresses and helps reduce back pain for added comfort.

Additionally, the engineers have included all the necessary components, such as pocket springs and latex, making it worth the investment. But the stand-out feature is its gravity-defying technology that lowers pressure on the body, thanks to its AeroFlex natural latex layer. This helps in spinal adjustment, which is a common problem for people who sleep on a medium to firm mattress.

You will also enjoy the natural bounce of this softer mattress as the material cushions the joints. Meaning, you won't wake up with body aches and will have a peaceful night of restorative sleep on this latex mattress.

Long story short, this gel-infused memory foam mattress provides great value for money.

This option from Noa features a hand-tufted Tencel pillow-top, making it an incredibly supportive, medium-firm mattress for users. But despite its slightly firmer build, it has an ultra-breathable and extremely soft fabric that feels great against the skin. Moreover, the designers have added anti-allergenic properties to prevent dust mites.

And despite regular use, its high-density support foam does not succumb to wear and tear, thanks to its six supportive layers. These layers prove suitable for consumers who keep changing their sleep positions throughout the night, thereby delivering a smooth experience.

In addition, you won't wake your partner with its gel-infused cooling memory foam, which prevents sweating and reduces disturbance. However, it is still very bouncy to help relax the back to wake up feeling fresh.

Lastly, it is one of the most durable pocket springs mattresses, with its waterproof inner cover ensuring that you get great value for money.

Onebed Original

Another premium-quality foam mattress for side sleepers is the Onebed Original 10" Mattress, which is customisable. Consumers will like that they can adjust the layers to choose the desired level of comfort. Understandably, it is regarded by many as one of the best mattresses available right now.

We love that the foam absorbs a person's body weight but, most importantly, doesn't lose its shape. The pressure is equally distributed through all the layers so that the spring jumps back into place.

Apart from that, the engineers have developed a responsive cushioning effect that helps multiple people sleep peacefully. Even if you toss and turn in bed, you won't disturb your partner, making it a soft mattress that is perfect for kids and adults alike.

Not to mention, this supportive mattress features a latex top layer that reduces discomfort and allows airflow to cool the body. Hence, hot sleepers will no longer wake up sweaty and tired.

Summing It Up

That's all there is to know about mattresses for side sleepers; hopefully, you can now make the right decision.

As with most products, remember to clean and dust the mattress to increase its lifespan. That said, it won't require much maintenance, and weekly cleanups should prove sufficient.

We won't keep you waiting any longer. You can play "Sweet Caroline" and relax on your new mattress, thinking about how "good times never seemed so good!"
