Side sleepers, don't hang around until Memorial Day to buy a mattress that supports your sleep. We've found an excellent deal on a mattress for side sleepers already – 25% off the Leesa Sapira Hybrid Mattress in the Leesa sale. You'll get a queen for just $1,499, plus it comes with two free pillows. 

The Leesa Sapira is one of the best mattresses for those who sleep on their side. It's soft enough to relieve pressure at the hips and shoulders, but not so soft that it can't support your spine. We're used to seeing some money off the Leesa Sapira, but this 25% off deal is particularly good, especially with the pillow bundle included.

While Memorial Day itself isn't for a couple of weeks, the Memorial Day mattress sales are well underway, with mega deals making this one of the best times to buy a bed outside Black Friday. Here's why the Leesa Sapira Hybrid is one of our top picks for side sleepers...

Summary: The dense, soft cushioning of the Leesa Sapira makes it one of our best mattresses for side sleepers. The surface cradles the pressure points, so instead of sinking into the bed, you're gently held in comfortable alignment. In our Leesa Sapira Hybrid Mattress review we were also impressed with the superb motion isolation, meaning if you share a bed with a restless partner, their tossing and turning won't have to keep you up all night.

At MSRP, the Leesa Sapira is slightly higher priced than mattresses of a comparable build, and the softer feel won't suit stomach sleepers and those with a heavier body. However, Leesa is transparent about the high-density foams used to make the Sapira, which is surprisingly rare for a mattress brand. Using dense foams ensures a quality build that should support side sleepers for many years, helping justify the price tag.

Price history: Leesa is no stranger to a mattress sale, but the typical deal offers up to 20% off mattresses. This 25% off discount is even better than the Black Friday deal, and although we did see a similar deal in January, it's not an offer that comes around regularly. Add on the two free pillows, and this is a bargain you don't want to miss.

Are hybrid or memory foam mattresses best for side sleepers?

Both hybrid and memory foam mattresses can be a good choice for side sleepers –  what's important it choosing the right level of firmness and support. We typically recommend a medium to medium-firm mattress for side sleepers, providing cushioning at the hips and shoulders while keeping the spine in neutral alignment.

Once you've got that sorted, you can focus on the other details. Hybrid beds tend to offer better temperature regulation (making them best for hot sleepers) while memory foam mattresses typically have superior motion isolation (which is recommended for couples). 

If you're interested in an all-foam Leesa mattress for side sleepers, consider the Leesa Original. There's 25% off the Leesa Original (plus two free pillows) in the Leesa Memorial Day sale, taking a queen to $999. Learn more with our Leesa Original Mattress review.
