In brief: Comfortable one

People sleep in many positions, back, abdomen and side.
With proper support of the neck, legs and back most any position is best. Some would prefer you not sleep on the abdomen due to the greater rotation of the cervical spine. Pillows are very improtant. Those that support the neck, lower back, between the legs help maintain normal curvature and posture. Sleep on it and find out best for you.
