No! Across our lineup of five mattresses, we have something for sleepers of all sizes and sleep positions.
We designed the Nolah Original with the unique needs of side sleepers in mind, but the Original is a highly versatile mattress. It’s also a good fit for lighter-weight back and combination sleepers.
The Signature also uses Nolah AirFoam™, but it has a thicker design, making it a great fit for slightly heavier back and combo sleepers. Meanwhile, the Evolution AirFoam™ hybrid comes in three firmness levels, accommodating a wide range of sleeper profiles. The latex hybrid Nolah Natural is also very versatile, meeting the needs of all sleep positions, depending on the sleeper’s weight. Lastly, the flippable-firmness Nolah Nurture supports most kids and teens through their entire adolescence.

What do we mean when we say Nolah AirFoam™ and our AirFoam™ mattresses are made for side sleepers? They enhance the natural benefits of side sleeping and address the position's vulnerabilities. Our Side Sleeper Guide explores the unique needs of side sleepers in greater depth, but below, we've summarized what you need to know to find a side-sleeper mattress.
Sleeping on your side has natural benefits, like avoiding pressure on your back, preventing snoring, and aiding digestion. However, it also concentrates your body weight across less surface area than back and stomach sleeping. As a result, side sleeping creates pressure points around the shoulder, hip, and knee that contact that mattress. To offset these vulnerabilities, side sleepers need a bed with the following qualities.
While designing the Nolah Original, the Nolah team developed and tested hundreds of foam formulas. We wanted to build the ideal side-sleeping mattress and invent an advanced foam that addresses memory foam's shortcomings.
This process led us to our proprietary polyfoam mattress material: Nolah AirFoam™. While initially designed for side sleepers, this durable, temperature-neutral mattress foam has benefits for all. For side sleepers, it checks all the boxes listed above.
