Tomorrow Sleep Review

Tomorrow Sleep is an online direct-to-consumer mattress company like a lot of others out there. The major difference is that Tomorrow Sleep is the direct-to-consumer arm of Serta Simmons Bedding, which is the company that makes Serta and Simmons mattresses. They are the largest mattress manufacturer in North America, and I’d be remiss if I didn’t review them.

Between the strong pedigree of the company and the quality of the materials used, I am comfortable recommending Tomorrow Sleep to my readers. Here I will look at the construction of Tomorrow Sleep mattresses, how the mattress feels, the price, and the accessories to help you determine if Tomorrow Sleep is right for you.

The tomorrow sleep mattress

The mattresses

Tomorrow Sleep is a “hybrid” mattress, which means it has an innerspring unit, but has a thick foam layer with a thin “quilt” layer, so the top feels more like a memory foam mattress. The Tomorrow Sleep comes in two firmnesses: “Medium Firm” and “Medium Soft”.

Both mattresses use individually pocketed coils with a 3 inch foam layer on top.

The Medium Firm uses firmer foam and thicker gauge coils than the Medium Soft version, but both use high density foams that should be very durable in the long run.

The foam layer uses a “phase change material” to keep a more neutral temperature. (In fact, the Medium Firm uses the same “Black Diamond” phase change material that the much more expensive Beautyrest Black models use.) Between that, the air flow channels in the side rails, and the innerspring unit, the mattress won’t get as hot at night as a pure memory foam mattress.

In all, it’s a solidly-constructed mattress.

How they feel

I was sent both a Medium Firm and Medium Soft to review.

The Medium Firm is quite firm, but doesn’t feel too hard on the surface. It uses a 1 inch layer of very firm memory foam that doesn’t contour too much, but the layer underneath and the coils will contour below it. The exact feeling is a little hard to describe, but it feels very much like a firm Tempurpedic brand hybrid. If you’ve ever tried the TEMPUR-Flex Prima in a store (which retails for more than twice as much), you get pretty close with the medium firm here.

Tomorrow Sleep says 70% of their customers prefer the Medium Firm over the Medium Soft, but I suspect this is because most people are just used to a firmer mattress. I’d say that this is better for back sleepers, stomach sleepers, and for people who are overweight that sleep in any position.

The Medium Soft is a bit softer on the surface than the Medium Firm, and it contours just a bit more, but I would not say that it’s very soft (which is why they call it the “Medium Soft,” I suppose). If you like a very plush squishy mattress, this isn’t going to be it.

The Medium Soft is going to be good for side sleepers and people who are on the thin side regardless of their sleeping position. Tomorrow Sleep says 30% of their customers prefer the Medium Soft, but I wouldn’t be surprised if there is a hefty overlap between the two, where a customer would be happy with either one they got.

If you like an extra-firm mattress or an extra-soft mattress, there is no Tomorrow Sleep for you.

If you like something a little on the firmer side, or are a back or stomach sleeper, or are heavier than average, the Medium Firm will be best.

Otherwise, you should go with the Medium Soft.

This picture demonstrates how a mattress is supposed to contour to your body. The shoulders and hips should sink in just enough to keep your spine aligned.

Price

The Tomorrow Sleep’s price is on par with many other direct-to-consumer mattresses, while being higher quality than many at that price. It retails for $990 in a queen (and ranges from $550 in a twin to $1250 in a California King). I have a $125 coupon, NERD125, which brings the price down much lower

For a similar quality mattress from a mattress store, you’d be looking at a retail price of nearly twice as much (or maybe even higher). Here are a few examples.

Tomorrow Sleep vs Tempurpedic Flex

The Tempurpedic TEMPUR-Flex Prima is a medium-firm hybrid from Tempurpedic. It retails for $2000 in a queen and has a fairly similar construction to the Medium Firm Tomorrow Sleep. The Tomorrow Sleep is half the price for roughly the same quality and feel.

Tomorrow Sleep vs Beautyrest Silver Hybrid

Serta Simmons Bedding makes Beautyrest mattresses in addition to the Tomorrow mattresses. The Silver Hybrid Beechwood and Silver Hybrid Austin Reef are both hundreds of dollars more expensive than the Tomorrow Sleep, and the foams on the Tomorrow Sleep are a little better. Plus, you get a better return policy with the Tomorrow Sleep than most retailers will give you on a Beautyrest Silver Hybrid.

Tomorrow Sleep vs Serta iComfort Hybrid

Serta Simmons also makes Serta iComfort mattresses (unsurprisingly), so it’s fair to compare to those as well. The iComfort Discover Firm and Plush are the most similar. They both use 3 inches of foam over individually pocketed coils, like the Tomorrow Hybrids do. The Tomorrow Hybrids are a lot less expensive for a similar quality and construction. And it’s from the same company.

Tomorrow sleep mattresses

Here are the two Tomorrow Sleeps I was sent for review

Return and warranty

The only reason I can recommend direct-to-consumer mattresses is because they generally have free return policies. Tomorrow Sleep has a 100 day return policy, so if you are unhappy with how the mattress feels, you can return it for a full refund within 100 days.

They encourage you to try the mattress for 30 days to get used to it and allow the mattress to break in. (Generally, memory foam in mattresses, particularly high density memory foam like in the Tomorrow Sleep, will feel firmer initially than what they’re supposed to. Giving it 30 days allows it to break in, like a new pair of shoes).

After 30 days, if you still don’t like it, they will send somebody out to pick up the mattress for free. It’s very simple.

The mattress comes with a 10 year warranty, which is in line with the industry standard. If the mattress sags at least 1.5 inches, they’ll repair or replace the mattress. (You may be responsible for a delivery charge, but that’s it).

The warranty does not cover comfort issues. The mattress will be less comfortable in 8 years compared to when it was new. That’s normal, and it might be time to get a new mattress when that happens. That’s not a warranty issue. But if the mattress actually has a 1.5 inch dip in it, that’s a problem.

Accessories

Tomorrow Sleep has a full range of accessories. You can make this a one-stop shop if you need everything. They have sheets, comforters, pillows, mattress protectors (read why you need a mattress protector here) and blackout drapes.

They even have a “Sleeptracker” monitor which gauges how well you sleep at night.

This review is already quite long, so I won’t get into great detail, but here’s a summary of each product:

  • Memory foam pillow: Very comfortable. My wife made this her main pillow
  • Standard pillow: Just okay. There are cheaper fiber-fill pillows out there.
  • Comforter: Warm and snuggly, but is a little crinkly. Using a duvet cover will mitigate that somewhat.
  • Mattress protector: Good quality, doesn’t feel like plastic, didn’t get hot for me, highly recommend it to keep the mattress in good shape in the long run
  • Sheets: High quality, smooth, very comfortable, but only comes in white. They use a percale weave (the standard weave), but it feels a little like a sateen weave (possibly due to the high thread count). (Update: I actually made these my main sheets. They’re quite nice)
  • Drapes: Great at blacking out light. I replaced my older black-out drapes with these because they looked a bit more modern and worked just as well. Comes in a choice of a few colors
Black out drapes

Not many direct-to-consumer mattress companies offer black-out drapes, but these work great and look good too.

Foundation/Adjustable Base

You’ll need something to put the mattress on. Tomorrow Sleep has two options: a platform bed and an adjustable base.

The Foundation is a fairly straightforward platform bed. It consists of a metal frame and wooden slats. It’s fairly inexpensive at $140 in a queen and $155 in a king. (Most boxsprings or foundations you’ll find are going to be in the $200-$300 range).

The luxury alternative is to get an adjustable base. The Tomorrow adjustable base has great functionality for the price. You can raise the head up, the feet up, save your favorite positions (in addition to the preset positions), and it even has a USB port to charge your phone.

If you have an old boxspring, it might be fine. Make sure it is rigid (it shouldn’t have actual springs in it. The Tomorrow is designed to work with a rigid surface) and in good condition.

If you already have a platform bed or adjustable base, the Tomorrow will work just fine on that (again, provided that they’re in good condition).

Conclusion

In summary, the Tomorrow Sleep Hybrid mattress is a great value for the money and it’s backed by the largest mattress manufacturer in the United States. So if you want a direct-to-consumer mattress but aren’t sure about the newer companies that have popped up, the Tomorrow Sleep is a solid choice. It’s better value for your money than most mattresses you’ll find in a retail store and it’s backed by a bigger company than other direct-to-consumer mattresses.

The soft should be fine for you two, since the "soft" isn't super-squishy. It's more of a medium. That is unless you like a firmer mattress as a personal preference, or you tried a Tempurpedic and really liked the slow reaction time. Otherwise, the Medium Soft is most likely to work.

I am looking for a King size for my husband and I. We are both average weight. He is mostly a back sleeper and I am mostly a side sleeper. Should I get the firm or soft?

They feel quite different. The Leesa will have a bouncier top, and the Tomorrow Medium Firm will be a bit squishier on the top, and feel more like traditional memory foam (it will have a little "bounce" further into the mattress, not on the surface like the Leesa). They are kind of similar quality, but the Tomorrow uses slightly stronger foams, so I'd have to say the Tomorrow is a little better as far as durability goes. The Sapira, which is also sold by Leesa, is more comparable in quality to the Tomorrow Sleep. On the other hand, I personally like how the Leesa feels a little better, but that's just personal preference. I like latex mattresses, and the Leesa feels like latex. If you like the feel of memory foam, you may like the Tomorrow better.

How would you compare the Tomorrow Sleep Medium Firm to the Leesa Medium Firm in terms of bot feel and quality? Thanks, Scott

I'm not familiar with the Nolah, so I can't really compare to that. The Medium Soft is not super soft. But, you do sink into it a fair bit, especially on your side. On a scale from 1 to 10 where 1 is the firmest, this will be somewhere around a 5 (but keep in mind everyone's body is different, and will sink in by a different amount, so your number may be a little different than mine).

I'm interested in the medium soft. I recently tried a Nolah and found it too firm. How soft would you say the medium soft is? Do you sink in? Is it softer than the Nolah? I currently have a Serta innerspring with a 3-inch, 3lbs memory foam topper. I like that amount of foam because I sink into it, but it feels hot. I'm thinking of getting the tomorrow sleep because it too has 3 inches of foam on top but may be cooler.
