Tempur ProAdapt

Reason to Buy

Tempur-Pedic mattresses are made from memory foam and come in multiple firmness options, composition, and thickness options. They’re known for their exceptional durability and motion isolation, and their close conforming properties offer pain and pressure relief for most.

Best Ultra-Luxury

Aireloom is a luxury mattress company that creates mattresses by combining Old World craftsmanship and innovative technology to bring sleepers products that are as comfortable as they are supportive.

Aireloom mattress 1

Reason to Buy

Aireloom offers eight collections of handcrafted luxury hybrid, latex, and innerspring mattresses that are known for their body-conforming support and durability. The hybrid and latex mattresses are uniquely constructed with horsehair and cashmere and have starting price points between $2,500 and $3,000. Other than the luxurious materials and technology used in their construction, little information about Aireloom mattresses are available online, so you’ll have to go to a Sit n’ Sleep store to learn more. Aireloom mattresses come with a 10- to 25-year warranty, are eco-friendly, and come with free delivery.

Most Durable

Sealy offers innerspring mattresses at below-average prices, and all Sealy models have relatively strong edge support and sleep cool.

Sealy Conform Collection

Reason to Buy

Sit n’ Sleep carries a variety of Sealy mattresses from their Essential, Performance, and Premium collections, which range in type, size, height, and firmness. Sealy mattresses have a shopper-friendly price point, but sleepers with a partner may find that the innerspring do not isolate motion well, leading to sleep disturbances if a partner moves throughout the night. All Sealy mattresses are sold with a 10-year warranty.

Online Alternatives

Mattress shopping has traditionally been an in-person activity, and the main benefit of this is that shoppers can see, touch, and even lie on the mattresses they’re considering to get a sense of their comfort and feel. However, buying a mattress in a showroom like Sit ‘n Sleep in Los Angeles has its downsides, too. In addition to navigating the L.A. traffic to get to a Sit ‘n Sleep location, there’s also the fact that you’ll be testing the bed in less-than-ideal conditions: fully clothed, under fluorescent lighting, and potentially with a store manager hovering.

If this experience doesn’t sound appealing to you, you have an alternative: online shopping. Here’s a shortlist of some of the best mattress retailers who either have an online presence or are exclusively web-based and a few things to know if you decide to check them out:

  • Leesa—Leesa currently offers one mixed-foam mattress model and two, hybrid mattress models. All Leesa options are made with mixed-foam comfort layers that cushion the sleeper’s body and result in above-average pressure relief. They’re also great at isolating motion, offered at a reasonable price, and have strong airflow throughout. Read our full Leesa Mattress Review
  • Purple—Purple mattresses are known for their Purple Grid comfort layer. This layer has become the company’s central selling point for its use of innovative technology and delivery of comfort and support. Purple mattresses conform to the body, sleep cool, and are affordable, and they’re highly rated. Check out our full Purple Mattress Review to learn more. 
  • Brooklyn Bedding—Brooklyn Bedding mattresses are more responsive than most memory foam options, and the company offers six mattress models in a variety of firmness levels. They work well for a variety of body types and sleeping styles but are not recommended for sleepers who like the feel of all-foam beds. Read our full Brooklyn Bedding Mattress Review
  • Casper—Casper sells its mattresses both online and in retail locations. They’re known for being close conforming, cool for an all-foam model, and excellent at isolating motion. Check out our full Casper Mattress Review to learn more. 
  • Tuft & Needle—Tuft & Needle tend to be less conforming and more responsive than other all-foam beds, and they offer hybrid models too. Both can be found online at relatively low price points. Read our full Tuft & Needle Mattress Review to learn more about the T&N bed. 
  • Nectar—Nectar Sleep is known for its flagship memory foam bed that’s constructed of three layers that incorporate gel memory and high-density memory foams. These mattresses tend to work well for average to heavyweight sleepers who tend to sleep hot on all-foam beds. Check out our full Nectar Mattress Review to learn more. 

Pro and Cons of Buying In a Store vs. Online

The primary question in every mattress shopper’s mind is obvious: “Which mattress should I get?” It’s an overwhelming query with many answers, depending on who you ask. The second question floating around in mattress shoppers’ heads is equally as overwhelming, however: “Where should I shop for my mattress?”

These days, shoppers have their choice between the traditional, brick-and-mortar mattress store experience and a number of top online mattress brands that have cropped up over the last decade. Keep reading to learn about the pros and cons of shopping online versus shopping in-person and which might be right for you.

Shopping Online


  • Purchasing a mattress online is more convenient and less time consuming than going to a mattress store in-person.
  • Online mattresses are usually more affordable, thanks to promo codes and low overhead costs.
  • Online mattress retailers have stepped up to the plate with regard to meeting shoppers’ expectations on return policies and more, and most online mattresses come with multiple-night sleep tests, free ways to return the mattress, and will get rid of your current mattress for free.
  • Comparison shopping is made easy, and you can simply open another tab or two to read about the specs, reviews, and policies of various mattress brands and models.


  • You won’t be able to test the mattress you choose unless you visit a store that carries it.
  • Mattresses are typically compressed for shipping (rolled and sent in a box) and will take 24 to 48 hours to return to their intended shape.
  • You won’t have the help of a sales rep, meaning you’ll need to conduct your own research ahead of time.

Shopping In-Store 


  • You’ll have the opportunity to test a variety of mattresses in-person to get a sense of the size, style, and firmness you enjoy.
  • Working with a customer service rep, which Sit ‘n Sleep calls Sleep Consultants, can prove to be a great experience, aiding in limiting your choices, teaching you about the types of beds available, and catering selections to your preferences and budget.


  • Testing mattresses in a showroom may be uncomfortable.
  • Some mattress customer service representatives can be pushy, showing you mattresses and accessories, like mattress protectors and box springs, you’re not interested in.
  • Showroom mattresses tend to be more expensive than their online counterparts.
