How do I lie correctly in the hammock?
The correct lying position for a straight back depends on how much the hammock sags and whether it is large enough.
Tip: Test for yourself whether you can improve the lying sensation with a pillow or blanket.
You lie as if the hammock is hanging. Your back is raised and you can easily read in the hammock. Not suitable for sleeping though.
If the hammock is hung too tightly or if it is too small, there is often no other option than to lie in the hammock in this way.
Diagonal Lying (Brasilian)
You lie diagonally in the hammock and use the entire surface area by lying from one corner of the surface to the other.
Your back should be straight and you can sleep in the hammock.
If the hammock is very saggy and the hammock is wider than your height, you can lie completely crosswise as shown in the video.
Then the back is in its natural shape and you can sleep in the hammock.
20° Wall Suspension
Better to avoid. You’re a little cramped and lie slightly diagonally.
30° Wall Suspension
The most popular angle for hanging a hammock because it makes the most of the surface area. This is especially important for smaller hammocks.
The hammock sags like a banana. You lie diagonally. This is also known as the Brazilian technique.
45° Wall or Ceiling Suspension
You lie diagonally to across. Crosswise, of course, is only possible if the hammock is wide enough.
75° Ceiling Suspension
In the hammock, you lie across. Therefore, the hammock should be wider than your height. Can feel cramped.
