Hi Joanne --

Thanks for your question. Ease of repositioning is something we specifically evaluate in each of our in-depth product reviews, so once you've narrowed down your options to a promising short list -- eg, by taking the GoodBed Quiz -- you'll definitely want to check out our reviews of those products to see our assessments in this area. FYI, each of our video reviews has chapter headings in the YouTube description that will allow you to skip directly to the section in which we discuss Ease of Repositioning.

Here is a list of all our expert reviews:

All that being said, as a general rule, there are certain types of characteristics and materials that tend to correlate with ease of repositioning. For example, mattresses with a lot of "memory feel" and/or deeper than average cushioning tend to be harder to reposition on. Conversely, mattresses with more of a "sleeping on your mattress" sensation (vs "sleeping in") and with more of a quick responsiveness tend to be better on this front. Likewise, softer mattresses can be more difficult for repositioning than firmer ones.

From a materials standpoint, latex is a comfort material that tends to make repositioning very easy, and stiffer coils under the latex can often help in this regard as well. And if this is your top priority, you'll want to stay away from mattresses with a lot of memory foam or with a lot of soft cushioning on top (eg, fluffy pillow-tops).

I hope that's helpful.
