Definitely. Your weight, body shape and sleeping pattern should be well considered when you are shopping for a mattress. If you are a side sleeper, it is recommended that you consider a slightly plusher mattress to allow for your side body contour. If you are considered to be heavier person, a firmer mattress might be more appropriate for you. More than often, for choosing a bed for you and your partner, there should be a compromise in comfort feel, so that both of your needs can be accommodated.
