Sleep posture is the position of your body at night. Learn how to optimise it, and you’ll reap the benefits of waking up rested and free from aches.
Wake up free from neck and back pain
Improve your digestion and circulation
Lessen tension in your neck and shoulders
Boost your energy levels and core strength
Which of the below sleeping positions are you?
We hate to break it to you: if you’re any of the above, your spine and neck are not thanking you. Let’s optimise your nighttime posture and get you to be friends again.
The ideal sleep posture is one that requires the least tension and achieves neutral spinal alignment. This is the easiest to accomplish while sleeping on your side, in a semi-foetal way, because this position applies the least pressure to your spine.
Become a Levitex Dreamer and optimise your sleep posture
Correct positioning at night is the secret to a great night’s sleep and a good, pain free, morning. You can achieve good sleep posture by becoming a Dreamer.
Select the right pillow height for you
Levitex pillows come in four heights to suit your body, and are designed to help with posture, pressure and proprioception.
Innovative foam technology that works as you sleep
We have developed a foam formulation that we call ‘the optimum surface for sleep’.
It supports your body as you rest, while optimising your sleep posture.
Levitex foam provides pressure relief for comfort and resistance for support. It fights your bad day time posture while you sleep.

Who are we?
Posture Experts, on a mission to educate the world about the importance of nighttime posture and to give people the tools to improve it.
Our founder, James Leinhardt, has spent 10+ years helping the critically injured, the chronically ill, and the infirm patients. He spotted a key gap in the way we think about posture: there is no consideration for how to manage it at night.
James took his idea to Dr Ilan Lieberman, a Pain Medicine Consultant and Clinician, and that’s how Levitex was born.
Why is good sleep posture important?
Sleeping correctly helps the muscles and ligaments in your body relax and heal. Good sleep posture happens when your back and neck are in neutral alignment.
By sleeping in the optimum, aligned position, you reduce the stress and pressure on your body. This allows you a more restful sleep, and an ache-free wake up.
Why is the Dreamer the best sleeping position for good posture?
The ideal sleep posture is one that requires the least tension and achieves neutral spinal alignment. This is the easiest to accomplish while sleeping on your side, in a semi-foetal way, because side sleeping applies the least pressure to your spine.
Do I have to sleep on my side for good sleep posture?
We know habits are hard to change. So, we refrain from trying to get everyone to sleep on their side – if you are a back sleeper, you can optimise your posture just as well with the right pillow. If you are a stomach sleeper, however, we would strongly encourage you to try side sleeping – your spine will thank you.
Is good sleep posture all that there is to a good night’s sleep?
Of course not – but our unique foam formulation takes care of a lot of the other ‘things’, not just posture, while you sleep.
