Mattress shopping is like car buying. Sleazy, dirty, and dishonest.
The worst part? A new mattress company makes an appearance almost every week. The process becomes that much more confusing.
Even industry experts have difficulty keeping up.
Uncomfortable store showrooms with pushy sales people is the norm. Lying down on a mattress for 5 minutes? Lets be honest, that isn’t leading to an informed, confident purchase decision.
This is where we come in. Our team has tirelessly reviewed online mattresses across several different types & styles. Our reviews are as object as possible. I lay out the pros and cons in simple, easy-to-read formats.
Continue below for our latest reviews by mattress brands & types.
Reviews By Mattress Type
Innerspring mattresses are the oldest mattresses styles today. Outdated? Definitely not. Innerspring mattresses made key adjustments over the generations. These adjustments lead to many technological refinements. Sturdier coil technology, tempered steel, higher coil gauges, and more.
Innerspring mattresses are ideal for people looking for a traditional innerspring feel with a longer life-span and comfortable top layers with a “bouncy” feel (suitable for sex)
Memory foam, unlike foam, feels much different. Also known as visco-elastic polyurethane foam, memory foam has distinct properties and feel. Memory foam molds and contours to a sleeper’s unique body position.
Memory foam mattresses are ideal for people that want increased blood-flow and healthy pressure point relief from an encapsulating memory foam-like feel.
Gel Memory Foam
Gel memory foam is simple. It’s memory foam infused with cool gel. Gels are designed to capture and dissipate heat away from your body. It does a great job. Many low, mid, and high end memory foam mattresses now put gel in their top layers.
Gel memory foam mattresses are ideal for people that sleep hotter than average. Gel does a great job at drawing heat away, keeping your body cool at night.
Hybrid mattresses combined a coil base with foam top layers; typically memory foam, latex, or a combination of both.
Hybrids do a great job blending benefits from memory foam, springs, and latex into one affordable mattress.
Hybrid mattresses are ideal for people that enjoy a coil mattress, but also like properties from memory foam (mold and contouring support), or latex (bouncy, cool sleep)
Latex mattresses are known for several things, including comfort, breath-ability, bounce, and responsiveness. They’re also considered much healthier than any other mattress style because of latex’s natural properties.
Latex mattresses are ideal for people that want a healthy, natural sleep. They’re also great for people that want a mattress that molds and contours like memory foam, without the drawbacks like heat & off-gassing.
