      You should be able to get on your side pretty well, huh? I'm a side
      and belly sleeper. I can get my body rotated 45-60 degrees to the
      side, and then get my head totally sideways or even down a little. I
      use a pillow. It helps me get my head at the right angle and gets my
      face out of the fabric.

      If you are a belly only sleeper, then maybe a hammock isn't worth it.
      I'm usually on my side, and on the ground I end up with lots of
      shoulder and hip pain. If I could do 100% back or belly sleeping I
      might go back to sleeping on the ground. Shh, don't tell the group ;-)
