  • Beautyrest 2017 Comparison Guide

    May 12, 2017

    Retail mattress stores often make it difficult to comparison shop mattresses. Each retailer will have a different name for the same (or almost the same) product. Furthermore, not every store lists detailed specs about whats in their mattresses, so it can be even more confusing. Here are some tables to help compare Beautyrest models between retailers.

  • Tempurpedic Alternatives

    December 15, 2016

    Tempurpedic is one of the biggest and most recognizable brands in the mattress industry. They were the company that invented the memory foam mattress in the early 90s, and they remain a large player in the industry still. In this article, I will give some alternatives to various Tempurpedic models that will feel similar to their Tempurpedic counterparts but at a much lower price.

  • Sapira® Review

    October 18, 2016

    Sapira® is a mattress made by Leesa Sleep®, which makes the eponymous Leesa® mattress (you can see my Leesa® review here). The Sapira® was designed to be a luxury model; higher quality at a higher price. But is it worth it? In this article, I’ll go over the construction, quality, feel and price of the Sapira® followed by a comparison with their lower-priced Leesa® mattress.

    May 21, 2016

    If you’re looking for an all-natural latex mattress, I believe this is the one you should go with, and I’ll explain why in this post. If you’ve never tried a latex mattress and aren’t sure about it, you should be careful about just buying this one, and I’ll explain that too.

  • GhostBed Review

    April 10, 2016

    GhostBed is yet another one of the latest direct-to-consumer, mattresses-in-a-box to hit the market. I was skeptical about this one at first until I realized that it is made by Nature’s Sleep, which is a respectable company that’s been around for 15 years. This was not just another marketing company trying to get in on the new mattress-in-a-box fad; it is an established mattress company taking advantage of the new distribution model.

  • Review of Wright Bedding

    January 5, 2016

    Dozens of mattress-in-a-box companies have come out in the past year, and most of them are extremely similar to the point where I don’t even bother reviewing them. But occasionally, one of the companies that contacts me for a review is actually different from the others, and I agree to review them. One such company was Wright Bedding.

  • Review of Honest Beds

    November 9, 2015

    This is a review of the mattress named “Honest Beds.” I almost titled this post “honest bed review,” but that almost sounds like “honest” is an adjective describing my review, rather than the name of the mattress. All of my mattress reviews are honest, but this one in particular is about the mattress available exclusively at Nest Bedding

    September 11, 2015

    Elsewhere on this site, I help people comparison shop between stores because difference places call the same mattress different names. You can see some of the comparison charts here. But I don’t have one for Stearns and Foster mattresses. There are two reasons for this.
