Mattress Firm has kick-started its official Black Friday sale with a huge discount on Tempur-Pedic's best-selling bed for side sleepers. As of today you can save up to $460 on a Tempur-Cloud at Mattress Firm, with a queen size reduced to $1,539 (was $1,999), plus you'll get free shipping and a 10-year limited warranty in this epic Black Friday mattress deal.

If you're a side sleeper experiencing pressure on your hips and shoulders, your current mattress might not be cushioning you in the right way. The Tempur-Cloud is a great choice for reducing key pressure points, making it ideal for side sleepers. How? The Tempur-Cloud's firm support layer provides pressure relief by contouring to your body, while its softer comfort layer is designed to cushion you all night long.

Mattress Firm offers a 120-night trial, so you'll have plenty of time to try the Tempur-Cloud at home. To ensure you're buying the best mattress for your sleeping position, take full advantage of this trial by unboxing the Tempur-Cloud as soon as it arrives.

The mattress is rated Medium-Firm on the firmness scale, which is well suited to back sleepers. You’ll have 120 nights to try this Tempur-Pedic mattress at home, which is more than the 30-nights recommended by sleep experts.

Price history: There are Tempur-Pedic mattress sales running most months, and this current deal reduces the cost of a queen to $1,399 (was $1,999), which is the price we normally see when the mattress is on sale. It's therefore a good time to buy if you can't wait to see if any further price drops occur during Black Friday itself.

Are medium-firm mattresses good for side sleepers?

Medium-firm mattresses are popular for their universal appeal – they are designed to cater to as many sleep positions as possible. Back sleepers tend to benefit the most from medium-firmness as it's soft enough to support your body’s lumbar region and firm enough to avoid that “sinking feeling”.

While the medium-firm mattress is suitable for most side sleepers, many people who sleep on their side – especially those with a lightweight frame – may benefit from a mattress that’s rated soft on the firmness scale because its softness cushions your hips and shoulders. However, most side sleepers will do just fine with a medium firm mattress – especially if you’re between 130 and 250lbs. 

Our top-rated medium-firm mattress is the Saatva Classic, so read our full Saatva Classic mattress review for a great alternative to the Tempur-Cloud and for a comparable price too. We also recommend the Avocado Green Mattress in medium firm, and that's also on sale too – take a look at our guide to Avocado mattress deals for the latest offers.
