Mattress Reviews

These days, it’s common practice to get a second opinion before you make a major purchase, like a mattress.  The Mattress Nerd wants to make that process as easy as possible and provide the information you need to make the right decision.  Read on for a comprehensive look at the industries top mattresses according to your sleep preferences.

So at this point, you’ve probably read one of our Mattress Buying Guides.  Great!  That’s an excellent place to start.  We have some other guides too for items such as pillows and sheets.

Maybe you’ve even take our Mattress Finder Quiz to get a custom recommendation based on your preferences?  Or you’ve compared mattresses or stores using our Mattress Comparison Tools?

Well now it’s time to get down to the details.  Mattress Reviews!

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 out reviews to help making 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.

All right, all right.  You get it.  Let’s take a look at some of the options.
