Mattress Reviews by Type

Some sleepers prefer a specific type of mattress based on its overall feel. Whether you like the contour of memory foam or the bounce of springs, there is a mattress out there to meet your comfort preferences. Below we highlight our Best Memory Foam, Best Latex, and Best Hybrid mattresses to make narrowing your search, that much easier. Or, take a glimpse at all our mattress reviews sorted by mattress type.


Mattress Reviews by Sleep Position

Did you know you should consider you sleep position when shopping for a mattress? You should. Bodyweight is distributed differently depending on whether you sleep on your back, stomach, or side. Additionally, the pressure placed on the joints differs based on body position. That’s why we want to help you find the best mattress based on your sleeping position. Do you switch positions? Read my guide on the best mattress for combination sleepers.

Mattress Reviews by Budget

For some, selecting a mattress comes down to money. Price isn’t always the only defining factor when it comes to mattress shopping, but it certainly plays a role. If you fall on either end of the spectrum (ready to drop some Benjamins or saving for a rainy day), we have sorted our top picks for the best luxury mattresses and the most affordable mattress for either budget. Want to see our top value picks? Head over to the best mattress for the money.


Reviews by Preferences, Age, Body Type or Lifestage

As we age and enter new stages of life, our sleep, and what we need to get that sleep, changes. Our bodies change, our lifestyle shifts, and ultimately, our needs in a mattress are altered to accommodate those changes. To find the best mattress for your age and lifestyle, see the following reviews sorted by personal needs and preferences. We even have recommendations for kids.

How We Grade a Mattress

If you haven’t noticed already there are a lot of mattress choices out there and many offering their own unique approach to improving sleep quality.  We structure our reviews to help to make the comparison as straightforward as possible.  All of our mattress reviews measure and judge on all the same criteria. These are the sections you’ll find in all of our reviews:

Summary This is where we give a high-level overview of the brand and the mattress.  It’s a great starting place to get an idea of what the mattress is all about.
Highlights If you’re looking for more information beyond what the Summary has to offer, but don’t feel the need to get down in the weeds, the Highlight section will list out what we think are the most important details about the mattress and the company.
Features Features can mean a lot of things, but below are how we categorize them across products.
Type For the most part, mattresses fall into 3 main categories:  Foam, Innerspring, Foam/Spring Hybrid.  You’ll find a few other variations, but this is where we’ll explain more.
Cooling If you’ve read the story of Goldilocks, you can understand finding the right temperature.  Sleeping temperature is no different and many consumers are looking for options that make for a cooler environment.  We’ll break that down here.
Firmness Preference of firmness is driven by many things: sleeping position, body shape, body weight, or just the personal feel.
Edge Support This may not be at the top of concerns for some people, but edge support can make a mattress for some people.  If you like to sleep along the edge(and don’t want to roll off) or you like to sit and put on your shoes in the morning, you’ll want to pay attention here.
Motion Transfer Sleep with alone? Then you can probably skip this section, but otherwise, if you have someone else in the bed that may be disturbing your beauty sleep every time they move, this is an important feature.
Construction In this section we’ll dive into what is on the side.  This includes technology and materials brands use to give these mattresses their unique feel.
Specs Specs includes a quick run down of all the technical specifications, such as weight, dimensions, and thickness.
Buying Experience It’s not always just about the product.  How a company handles the sale (and beyond) can definitely change a buying decision.  Below are some of the areas we cover.
Trial This may be one of the best innovations of the the mattress industry in recent years.  Mattress returns!  Most companies offer a trial period where, if you haven’t enjoyed your experience, you can send it back for a refund.
Warranty Want to know if a company thinks their mattress is high quality?  A warranty is a good place to look.  Here we talk about what happens if a mattresses doesn’t live up to the quality standards you were sold on.
Delivery and Setup Another awesome mattress innovation in recent years is the “bed in a box.”  These days, many mattresses magically show up on your doorstep in an impossible size box for a mattress.
Customer Service Want to feel good, knowing that you can reach someone if you run into an issue with your mattress.  Some are better than others.  We’ll give you the inside scoop in this section.
Price Mattress are a big expense.  We don’t act like it’s not.  You’ll find options on both end of the spectrum.  We let you know what you can expect.
Conclusion We conclude with our final thoughts.  This is a wrap up that hopefully answers any last questions you may have.
