THE BAD
Nothing, Puffy seems to have gotten it right.

One of the most unbelievably comfortable mattresses we’ve had the pleasure to try out, you will be amazed to find out just how affordable it is to comparable mattresses.

Serta

THE GOOD
It's a great mattress, supportive and firm where it needs to be and soft when it should be, the Serta is a great mattress if you have money to splurge.

THE BAD
Serta beds are comfortable however they do come on the pricier side which is the main ding to their ranking.

THE BOTTOM LINE
The pricey but comfortable dreamer, the Serta mattress provides great sleep. Its memory foam and individually wrapped coil innersprings would give any consumer a good night sleep. However, due to its steep price the Serta falls as #2 on our list of top mattresses.

MATTRESS COMPOSITION
Serta include a Cool Action™ Gel Memory Foam which is intended to keep you cool at night. It also a ComfortLast Foam with Edge Support for its bottom support foam.

 

 

Purple


THE GOOD
The Purple Mattress is made of hyper-elastic polymer which is unlike other mattresses that are mostly made of memory foam. The feel is unique and it springs back very quickly and keeps you cool.

THE BAD
The main knock in regards to Purple is that hyper-elastic polymer isn't Certi-Pure certified like many of the other mattresses. In addition, it only comes with a limited warranty.

THE BOTTOM LINE
Overall a great interesting feel to the Purple Mattress. The Purple takes the #3 spot on our list.

MATTRESS COMPOSITION
The top layer consists of their infamour Hyper-Elastic Polymer™ Smart-Comfort Gel Grid. In addition the bottom layers consist of Polyurethane Foam.

 

Leesa


THE GOOD
Definitely one of the better mattresses out on the market, Leesa provides a soft bed for a great sleep. The cooling layer works decent providing a good feel overnight.

THE BAD
For the price, we would hope it would have been more supportive. Although a better choice than some of the others on our list, at its price, it just doesn’t hold up to similarly priced mattresses.

THE BOTTOM LINE
Another great mattress on the market, very similar to the feel of Tuft & Needle. Leesa mattresses have a great feel and will provide you with a great sleep. We particularly liked the multiple materials used in the mattress, which really did make a difference in the comfort level. It ranks as #4 on our list of Top Mattresses.

MATTRESS COMPOSITION
The top layer consists of Avena® PerfoReview Foam. The bottom layers are Polyurethane Memory Foam.

 

Amerisleep


THE GOOD
Amerisleep comes with a Cellian Cover that allows for cool sleeping. Overall a good mattress for most types of sleepers due to its bio-based foam.

THE BAD
Amerisleep sleeps great but is on the pricier side. In addition, most reviews have complained it being a bit on the soft side as well.

THE BOTTOM LINE
Overall a fine mattress built with a good quality cover. It is made in the US which is a huge plus. It comes with a limited 20 Year Warranty.

MATTRESS COMPOSITION
Top layer consists of Bio-Pur™ Memory Foam. The middle layer is Affinity Transition Polyurethane Foam. Bottom layer is Bio-Core™ Polyurethane Foam.

 

Sapira


THE GOOD
The Sapira is built with the highest grade 6" coils. Overall it is a 11" inch mattress with 5 layers. It is a hybrid mattress built with wonderful edge support. Sapira by Leesa has also donated over 6,000 mattresses which is something worth mentioning.

THE BAD
The main issue with Sapira is the price. While an overall great mattress, it compares to other mattress that are fraction of the cost.

THE BOTTOM LINE
A fantastic overall mattress that provides wonderful sleep. It doesn't lack in quality in any areas. It takes the #6 spot in our top 10 mattress ranking.

MATTRESS COMPOSITION
Sapira's top layer consists of Avena® Memory Foam. The remaining foam is Polyurethane Memory Foam. In addition, it also has pocket coil springs.

 

GhostBed


THE GOOD
Top cover is quit strechy and plush. The white fabric gives a it a nice soft look to the mattress. The cover is zippable allowing you to easily remove it for washing.

THE BAD
It does include latex so that is something to watch out for. In addition, there is a slight sinking you would experience more than usual with memory foam mattresses.

THE BOTTOM LINE
Another great mattress on the market, very similar to the feel of Tuft & Needle. GhostBed mattresses have a great feel and will provide you with a great sleep. We particularly liked the multiple materials used in the mattress, which really did make a difference in the comfort level. It ranks as #7 on our list of Top Mattresses.

MATTRESS COMPOSITION
The top layer is latex foam and the bottom layer is Polyurethane Support Foam.

 

Nectar


THE GOOD
Overall the Nectar is a overall good mattress which provides nice comfort. The Nectar Mattress provides good support and doesn't have too much sinking.

THE BAD
The primary ding to Nectar is the fact that it is Made in China. While most mattress companies are based in the US the Nectar is not and is the reason for its lower score.

THE BOTTOM LINE
The Nectar is overall a good buy due to its cheap price. They do include 2 free pillows which is a great add-on for the price you pay.

MATTRESS COMPOSITION
Top layer is a Quilted Gel Visco Elastic Memory Foam. It also includes gel memory foam and Polyurethane Support Foam.

 

Sleep Number


THE GOOD
Sleep Number comes with adjustable beds on both sides. It also has a longer lifespan than most mattresses due to its build.

THE BAD
It is somewhat difficult to initially use. Sleep Numbers have a history of possibly malfunction or going through a repair process.

THE BOTTOM LINE
Sleep Number comes in at #9 according to customer reviews. Its features adjusting beds on both sides which adds a huge price tag due to its technology. The price to value is its primary disadvantage as a mattress.

MATTRESS COMPOSITION
The Sleep Number consists of memory foam and air chambers making it a very unique composition.

 

Helix

Helix image


THE GOOD
It’s comfortable. Helix is a custom made mattress great specific for the individual sleeper type. We normally don't see this in the mattress industry so it was refreshing to see a mattress company take this task on.

THE BAD
We did find some instances where after months the Helix would concave a bit. While these might be isolated instances it is worth pointing out.

THE BOTTOM LINE
Good overall hybrid mattress that ranks in the Top 10 Best Mattresses. Its microcoils and dynamic foam provide a great sleep for most sleeper types.

MATTRESS COMPOSITION
The Helix Mattress consists of polyurethane foam and pocketed micro coils.

 




What to Look for When Buying a Mattress

 

Support and Comfort

There are two major factors to look for when you are searching for a new (great) mattress – support and comfort. When you lie down on a mattress, it should properly support your body, sinking and conforming around your shape in the correct areas to ensure your spine remains aligned while you sleep through the night. Proper alignment from head to toe is essential for healthy sleep and to alleviate back pain. While being supportive of your body, a proper mattress should provide pressure relief. Pressure points on your body, typically shoulders, hips, or back, are what cause you to toss and turn at night. The reason memory foam mattresses have become so popular as of late is due to the fact that they are excellent at being both supportive and comfortable.

 

Stiffness/Softness

This again plays into the same category of support and comfort. A mattress should neither be too hard nor too soft. It should be as neutral as possible, to keep your body and spine in a neutral position. If a mattress is too stiff, it will cause too many pressure points on your body, pinching nerves and stopping blood flow. If you often wake up with the feeling of pins and needles on your body, it’s likely from the mattress being too stiff. And when the opposite occurs, with a bed that is too soft, you will get a concaving “hammock” effect, which will cause back pain from improper alignment of your spine. It is important to find a mattress with a neutral feel, that will be both stiff and soft in the correct places.

 

Temperature Neutrality

One of the most often skipped over features of a mattress (and the downfall to many lower end foam mattresses) is the breathability or temperature neutrality of the material. Although that conforming feel that memory foam mattresses provide is one of its greatest features, the lower end are also susceptible to the oven-effect, where the mattress retains body heat and starts to get uncomfortably warm through the night. In rare occasions, a mattress might be the opposite. Not retaining enough temperature, and consistently leaving you feeling colder than you would like (I’m looking at you, water beds). The newest generation of foam and standard inner-spring mattresses companies tend to design special materials into their products to allow the bed to breathe and disperse heat more evenly. – But, as we shall see from reviews, some companies perform better than others in this aspect.

 

Durability

It goes without saying that most mattresses aren’t cheap, especially if you are looking for a good one. It’s a large investment to make, so when you purchase one, it is important to find a mattress that will last you for years. It’s important to find a mattress that was designed with durability in mind. Some mattresses may start off feeling amazing, but may start to sag or develop a body imprint after just a few months of use. This tends to result in improper spine alignment and increased pressure points on your body, which would be devastating to your sleep cycle. If you’re going to be investing in a new mattress, make sure the manufacturer has designed a durable base and proper materials to ensure they will keep their shape over the years. Look for a mattress that offers a minimum 10 year warranty.
