Mattress comparison shopping

One MAJOR complaint people have about the mattress industry is how difficult it is to comparison shop for mattresses. Every retailer seems to have its own name and model number for what should be the exact same mattress. They may use a different ticking (the “skin” of the mattress), or add a quarter inch extra of foam, or add 5 more coils, or some other minor difference to call it a different mattress. Some people have even claimed it is “impossible to comparison shop for a mattress.” I disagree with this assessment. It can be difficult to comparison shop for a mattress, but it is not impossible. I will give you some tips to help compare mattresses among retailers.

Comparing name brands

Big name brand manufacturers are usually the easiest to comparison shop on, even if everything has a different name. There are often lineups of mattresses within the brand which can be directly compared. For example, consider Simmons. They have several lines of mattresses. They have the BeautySleep lineup and the Beautyrest lineup. Within the Beautyrest lineup, they have Silver models, Platinum models, and Black models.

To make sure you’re looking at the same mattress, you need to look at the specs of the mattress. Compare each layer between the retailers. As a shortcut, you can also look at the height of the mattress (although there are some rounding differences. One place might call it 13″ while another says 12.5″, for example). Once you find a mattress in the same lineup with the same height (and the same firmness), it’s just a matter of double-checking the layers of foam.

Once you’ve found the mattress in the same lineup, same height with the same foams as the mattress you liked, you have a match.

You can do two things with this information. You can just buy it online from the cheapest place (US Mattress is often good for this), or take that price into your local mattress store and see if they can match or beat the price. Buying online is usually a little more convenient up front, but brick-and-mortar retailers are sometimes easier to reach with customer service issues.

Comparing non-name brands

It can be a bit more difficult to compare mattresses from smaller brands, or brands that custom-make their mattresses for various retailers. You cannot go by a lineup name in these cases. You have to go by the specs. This takes a bit more digging around. It works the same as with the brand name ones, but you do not have the help of the lineup. You have to go just by the components.

The way I do this is doing a Google search for the coil system that it uses, and then finding ones with that coil system with similar layers of foam. There’s not always a match, so it’s tougher.

Other factors to consider between mattress retailers

Price is not the only thing to consider when comparison shopping. There are a few other factors to look for.

Exchange policy

Make sure the retailer has either an exchange or a return policy. This is doubly true for internet retailers, since you won’t have the chance to lie on that exact model of mattress before buying it. Expect at least a 30 day exchange policy from a retailer. Some charge a second delivery fee, some charge a flat exchange fee, some charge a percentage of the original price.


There are several factors to consider when comparing delivery services. What is the price? How quickly can it be shipped? Do you get to pick your own time window, or do they call you the day of delivery? Will the drivers set up the merchandise, or do they drop it off at your front door? It might be worthwhile to spend a little extra money to get the service that best fits your schedule.


If all else is equal, consider the reputation of the retailer. Is this some fly-by-night internet company that will be out of business in a year? Or is it a nationwide brand that has been around for decades?


I hope I have cleared up the process to compare mattresses between retailers. If you are able to comparison shop, you are able to pit one retailer against another and force them to drop their price to earn your business.

I visited a local mattress store and liked a Stearns and Foster Villa Cuneo mattress from the Lux Estate collection - euro pillowtop cushion firm. It was 16.5" and the store was asking $3100 before the base, delivery, or haul away of old mattress - needless to say, I'm sure I can do much better elsewhere. Is this the Fiona Rose from There it is $3100 including the base and delivery/haul away, so a decent savings ($400+). Hopefully I can get the salesperson to match the pricing. However, I see you're not too high on S&F mattresses. What online mattress would be comparable? I took the quiz and it said Brooklyn, Dreamcloud, or Sapira would be right for my husband and me. We are okay spending a little more and want a nice quality mattress that will hold up and be comfortable for 7+ years. Thanks so much for your help!!

Can you please match S&F Oak Terrace to the list? I guess it is the most entry level? or slightly below regular mattress? Do you have any comment on it? We purchased one in a local store, and thought it should just be the same entry level S&F we've tried in other stores. We bought there just as there was a decent promotion. However, when we got our mattress, we feel very uncomfortable when lie down, probably because the knots are so dense (we have the firm) and the surface is not flat. It wasn't that bad when we tried at the store with jackets on. We are not big enough to even it out and feel weird I guess. then I found a lot of website offer this series at similar low price and started to wondering is this series just created to offer at lower price (aka cheaply made?) or is it just maybe not suitable for us?

The BeautySleep models are a step below the Beautyrest models, and are more suited for guest rooms or temporary use. A google search didn't come up with anything called the Woodfield. I don't even know if it's a plush, firm, or pillowtop model. Here are the BeautySleep mattresses at US Mattress. You can see if you find one that looks like the Woodfield there and compare prices.

Hi - is the S & F Scarborough III Estate Ultra Firm (Mancini Sleepworks) similar to the Belleville sold at Macy's?

The Kirkland Signature collection is exclusive to Costco and is a small a step below the Estate Collection sold everywhere else.

I'm looking at the Stearns and Foster "Hope Bay" Mattress that's sold under the Kirkland signature brand from Costco, can you tell me which one it matches up to? Thanks!

No, the Kirkland Signature collection is a step below the Estate collection. The Kirkland Signature collection uses thicker layers of the more basic foams compared to the Estate collection to save money and reduce the price.

Is the Hope (Stearns and Foster) mattress sold at Costco the same as the Estate (S&F) at the (S&F site) Or which is the equivalent? Thanks

That's the same as the Addison Grace Plush Euro Pillowtop and the ones in that row on the chart.

I am considering swapping out my Tempurpedic Legacy that I purchased only 30 days ago and unequivocally HATE, for a Stearns and Foster Villa Turin Luxury Cushion Firm. It is a hybrid and in the showroom was extremely comfortable. I will have to spend about $650 extra to do my "comfort swap." Any reviews on this particular one?

The Hope Bay is in the "Kirkland Signature" lineup at Costco, which is exclusive to them. It's a step below the "Estate" collection sold elsewhere, because it uses thinner layers of the better foam (and thicker layers of the more basic foam) in comparison to the Estate collection. The closest comparison would be the Addison Grace, but the Addison Grace is a step up.

Hi, I found a Stearns & Foster Nickeline - Firm Tight Top at Ashley furniture. Trying to find the comparable model name at other stores. I think it might be the McKee Luxury Firm, but not sure. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

The Kirkland Signature models use thinner layers of the higher quality foams than the "national" models of Stearns and Foster, but otherwise they're similar to the lower priced ones on my chart.

Hello, I am looking for review of the new Costco Kirkland Signature by Stearns & Foster--Hope Bay model. Can you help me?

MattressNerd Says

June 11, 2017 at 9:20 pm

Eh, kinda. They've always had those models, but they're not the same lineup as everybody else. The Kirkland Signature lineup is just made for Costco as far as I'm aware, and they don't use the same materials as the other ones.

On my comparison chart in my Stearns and Foster Review, it's the same as the ones in the row that begins with Fiona Rose.

Hello-- I'd like to take you up on your offer to help out with a non-listed retailer for a Stearns and Foster mattress. We found the "Nighthawk Luxury Cushion" at Haverty's here in northern Virginia. Here are some of the specs that might help with naming an equivalent if the name is not sufficient: Mattress Height 16.5 " King Coil #: 2656 Queen Coil #: 2044 2" Prima Sense Gel Foam Hope that is enough. Thanks for your site and assistance.

Hello, First of all thanks for the all the information you have shared. It was so much useful for my mattress shopping. Hats of to you. I'm in the market to buy a new mattress. I've decided to buy the Beautyrest Recharge World Class Park Ridge Luxury Firm Pillow top mattress from Raymour & Flanigan. In one of your posting you had mentioned that the Worldclass models are phased out and replaced by the Plantinum models. But i went to most of the big retailers, I found the platinum model only at sears but the others dont even know about it. Is the world class models still good to buy now ? Pls suggest me. Thanks in advance,

That's a decent mattress, but since it's exclusive to Sleepy's it tends to be rather expensive and you can't comparison shop it (not that you were comparison shopping anyway, since it's an exchange).

Hi, can you please provide me with feedback on the Simmons Beautyrest Luxury Plush Legend Pillowtop. In the store (Sleepy's) I prefered it over the plush version. I liked the conforming softness, it also felt more supportive. I currently have the SBR World Class Recharge Shakespeare Plush model which is wreaking havoc on my back and I want o exchange it. Its extremely unsupportive,uncomfortable and is too firm with pressure point pain. My concern and fear with Simmons would be sagging and more back issues. We have to do the comfort exchange with Sleepy's, what do you recommend/views. Thanks, Monique
