With a wide variety of mattresses available on the market, choosing the right one can pose a challenge. There are multiple factors to consider when shopping for a mattress, including materials, construction, pricing, firmness level, and size. Another important consideration is the origin of the mattress.

Customers who live in the United States may receive a mattress made in the U.S. more quickly than products manufactured outside the country, especially if the mattress is made on demand. Domestically produced mattresses may also spend less time sitting in a warehouse or packed up in plastic.

U.S.-based shoppers concerned with environmental impacts may also prefer to purchase a mattress made in the U.S. to reduce carbon emissions during the shipping process. Others may opt to purchase locally to support their city, state, or regional economy; to ensure they’re buying from a properly regulated work environment; or because they believe U.S. products to be of high quality due to strict manufacturing regulations.

We’ve compiled a list of the best mattresses made in the USA, along with information about their materials, performance, pricing, and more. We also provide tips on what to look for in American-made mattresses and explain which certifications are most important. To learn about our top mattress picks and how we choose them, visit our guide to the best mattresses of 2024 for more information.

A collective favorite among our testing team, the WinkBed epitomizes the thoughtful construction and strong performance sleepers have come to expect from U.S.-made mattresses. Four firmness levels are available, all of which feature a plush Euro-top surface and robust, multi-zone coils.

  • Pros

    1. Adaptive comfort layers contour evenly to reduce pressure

    2. Zoned coils provide extra support around the midsection

    3. Available in four firmness levels

  • Cons

    1. Limited options for sleepers who prefer exceptionally soft mattresses

    2. Initial off-gassing smells can be somewhat strong

The WinkBed is one of the most versatile, U.S.-made mattresses our team has tested firsthand. This foam hybrid is available in four firmness levels to accommodate different people based on their body type and primary sleep position. A sturdy support system and breathable cover round out the appealing design.

Three firmness options are available for standard WinkBed models. These mattresses contain a layer of plush polyfoam sewn to the bottom of the Euro-top cover, followed by a second polyfoam layer for additional cushioning. Our side and back sleepers under 130 pounds felt most comfortable on the medium soft (4) WinkBed, which contours closely to the body. Heavier testers who use these positions — as well as stomach sleepers up to 230 pounds — preferred the medium firm (6) and firm (7) models.

You can also choose the WinkBed Plus (8), a variation specifically designed for people who weigh more than 230 pounds. These models swap out the second polyfoam layer for zoned latex that feels firmer and more supportive around the midsection. All versions of the WinkBed are constructed with zoned pocketed coils that also reinforce the chest, stomach, and hips — areas of the body where people tend to carry extra weight.

A cover made of moisture-wicking Tencel fabric encases the mattress. This material helps cool off the WinkBed’s surface, while the coils promote steady airflow to maintain a comfortable interior temperature. While each firmness level has unique strengths, our team found that all versions of the WinkBed provide excellent overall temperature regulation.

The WinkBed Plus costs slightly more than standard WinkBed models, but all are within the average range for hybrid mattresses and shipping is free within the contiguous U.S. Your order includes a 120-night trial period. If you aren’t satisfied with your initial firmness selection, WinkBed allows you to exchange the mattress for a softer or firmer model at no extra cost, and the replacement comes with its own 60-night trial. A lifetime warranty covers structural defects in your mattress as long as you retain original ownership.

Brooklyn Bedding’s Signature offers high-quality hybrid construction at an approachable sticker price, making this a high-value option for mattress shoppers. Three firmness levels are available to accommodate different body types and sleep positions.

  • Pros

    1. Foam-over-coil hybrid design creates a balance of cushioning and support

    2. Available in three firmness levels

    3. Optional “Cloud Pillow Top” delivers exceptional surface cooling

  • Cons

    1. Strong initial off-gassing for the first 48 hours

Hybrids are one of the most expensive mattress types, but the Brooklyn Bedding Signature is a great example of a high-quality hybrid that won’t drain your wallet. The tried-and-true combination of adaptive foam comfort layers and a pocketed coil support core delivers ample cushioning on the surface and strong overall reinforcement. You can also choose from three firmness levels based on your body type, sleep position, and general preferences.

The topmost layer is composed of TitanFlex, a dense proprietary foam that adapts to your figure without the hug of memory foam. A cooling gel infusion helps the TitanFlex resist heat buildup. Transitional polyfoam pushes back against your weight to keep your body on an even plane. For an extra fee, you can upgrade your Signature Hybrid to include an additional foam layer encased in cooling fabric. The support core consists of pocketed coils and dense base foam.

During our hands-on tests, the medium soft (4) Signature Hybrid fared well among side sleepers up to 230 pounds and back sleepers under 130 pounds. This design contours quite closely to create a deep, pressure-relieving cradle. If you weigh at least 130 pounds and sleep on your back or stomach, we recommend the firm (8) model — its robust support and minimal conforming earned stellar ratings from our testers who meet these criteria. The medium firm (6) design is the most balanced option, receiving favorable marks from side and back sleepers across all weight groups.

Temperature control was one performance area where the Signature Hybrid excelled. Even without the Cloud Pillow Top, there’s enough airflow through the coil system to maintain a comfortable temperature and the mattress cover is made from a breathable cotton blend. Firmer models feel sturdy along the perimeter and create a light bounce to help you move across the surface, whereas the medium soft design isolates motion well and alleviates pressure along the spine.

The Signature Hybrid is available in 14 different sizes. In addition to standard mattress dimensions, these include a split California king for couples with adjustable beds and several RV options. Brooklyn Bedding offers free ground shipping throughout the contiguous U.S. Your purchase comes with a 120-night sleep trial. Should you decide to keep the mattress after the trial ends, you’ll also receive a 10-year warranty against structural and material defects.

The luxurious Saatva Classic uses two coil layers to create a sturdy, responsive sleep surface that also sleeps quite cool. Three firmness options and two profiles make this innovative innerspring a good match for a wide range of sleepers across different weight and position groups.

  • Pros

    1. Free White Glove delivery in the contiguous U.S.

    2. Multiple firmness levels and profile options

    3. Quality materials and construction provide excellent durability

  • Cons

    1. Couples may experience movement-related sleep disruptions

The Saatva Classic is a coil-on-coil innerspring mattress that combines multiple layers of foam and coils, creating a responsive but breathable bed. It features a polyfoam pillow-top, a memory foam lumbar pad, and pocketed 14.5-gauge microcoils, along with a support core of 13-gauge hourglass coils.

The dual-coil design and soft cotton cover encourage breathability, making this mattress a good choice for hot sleepers. Its coil-based construction also adds the edge support and bounce necessary for sleepers to move across the bed easily. With proper care, this bed’s durable, supportive construction should provide many years of comfort.

The Saatva Classic is available with firmness levels of soft (3), medium firm (6), or firm (8) and heights of 11.5 or 14.5 inches. It comes in twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, split king, California king, and split California king sizes.

The mattress comes with a lifetime limited warranty and a 365-night sleep trial. The company offers free White Glove delivery within the contiguous U.S., which means a professional will deliver the mattress and set it up in your home. Saatva will also collect your old mattress and foundation for disposal.

The versatile Leesa Sapira Hybrid offers a medium firm feel that can accommodate a wide range of body types and sleep positions. Gentle cushioning, a light bounce, and steady airflow also help ensure a cool and comfortable night’s rest.

  • Pros

    1. Thick foam layers cushion the body without hugging too closely

    2. Channeled top layer promotes airflow and breathability on the surface

    3. Reinforced perimeter coils prevent excessive sinkage when you get in and out of bed

  • Cons

    1. Stomach sleepers over 230 pounds may need more support

    2. Noticeable off-gassing odor for the first few nights

Although comfort is a subjective quality and largely depends on personal preferences, the Leesa Sapira Hybrid’s balanced design should appeal to a wide range of people across different body types and sleep positions. Adaptive foam layers cushion the body while robust pocketed coils push back against your weight, creating a true medium firm (6) feel. The thoughtful construction also includes cooling components to reduce heat retention and maintain a comfortable temperature.

The Sapira Hybrid’s top layer consists of polyfoam cut with channels to promote air circulation beneath your body. Memory foam and transitional polyfoam layers provide additional cushioning while forming an adaptive buffer between your body and the support core. Pocketed coils and dense base foam create a robust support system, and the perimeter is reinforced to reduce sinkage when you lie close to the edges or get on and off the mattress.

Our hands-on tests show the Sapira Hybrid is an especially good fit for side sleepers who weigh at least 130 pounds, and back and stomach sleepers under 130 pounds. In terms of performance, the mattress isolates motion quite well for a hybrid and the foam layers deliver ample pressure relief along the spine. At the same time, the edges feel stable and you shouldn’t feel stuck moving across the surface.

Competitive pricing and free shipping to all 50 states make the Sapira Hybrid a solid choice for budget-conscious shoppers. You’ll also receive two pillows with your order at no extra cost. The sleep trial runs for 100 nights. If you’re satisfied with the mattress after the trial concludes, your purchase is backed by a manufacturer’s warranty covering structural defects for up to 10 years.

Specifically designed for side sleepers, the Helix Midnight delivers plush cushioning for the shoulders and hips, sturdy coil support, and a light bounce to help you move on the surface. We also like the mattress for its sticker price — it costs much less than the average hybrid model.

  • Pros

    1. Foam layers cushion the body to align the spine and reduce pressure

    2. Reinforced perimeter coils stabilize the edges

    3. Below-average pricing and free shipping to all 50 states

  • Cons

    1. Lacking in support for most stomach sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds

    2. Initial off-gassing smells can be strong and unpleasant for the first 48 hours

Helix Sleep offers a diverse line of hybrid mattresses, each of which is designed for certain body type and sleep position combos. The Helix Midnight is geared toward side sleepers between 130 and 230 pounds. That said, our hands-on tests show the Midnight’s balanced design and medium firm (6) feel may appeal to a wider swath of sleepers.

The mattress begins with a memory foam comfort layer, followed by a polyfoam transitional layer. These components contour moderately and evenly to distribute your weight, promote even alignment, and reduce pressure in the shoulders, lower back, and hips. Pocketed coils and high-density base foam make up the support core. The coils are reinforced along the perimeter, resulting in strong pushback when you sleep close to the edges or get in and out of bed.

During our tests, the Midnight’s most favorable ratings came from side sleepers between 130 and 230 pounds, and back and stomach sleepers under 130 pounds. However, testers across all three position groups up to 230 pounds found the mattress comfortable and sufficiently supportive. Our tests also indicate the Midnight regulates temperature well. This can be attributed to steady air circulation through the coil system and a breathable, knit cover.

The Midnight’s sticker price falls well below average and ground shipping is free for customers in the contiguous U.S., so this mattress is a good option if you’re shopping on a tight budget. You’ll also receive a sleep trial with your order that runs for 100 nights. If you decide to keep your Midnight, Helix Sleep further backs your purchase with a 10-year manufacturer’s warranty.

The Bear Elite Hybrid combines the plush, gentle contour of memory foam with next-level reinforcement from multi-zone support layers. You can choose from three firmness levels, and a generous return policy allows a free exchange during the trial period if you aren’t completely satisfied with your initial selection.

  • Pros

    1. Zoned transitional layer reinforces the midsection and cradles lighter areas of the body

    2. Reinforced coils minimize sinkage along the perimeter

    3. Available in three firmness levels

  • Cons

    1. Couples may notice motion transfer

    2. Soft to medium soft designs not available for those who want extra plushness

If you wake up feeling sore or stiff, your mattress may be a primary culprit. Sleep surfaces that don’t cushion the body and evenly distribute your weight can create pressure buildup in areas like the neck, shoulders, lower back, and hips. The Bear Elite Hybrid is a mattress designed to mitigate this issue. You can choose from three firmness levels based on your weight and sleep position, and a zoned transitional layer pushes back against areas of the body with disproportionate amounts of weight.

The Elite Hybrid begins with a memory foam comfort layer. A copper fiber infusion helps offset the foam’s heat-retaining properties, so the surface should remain relatively cool. Convoluted polyfoam forms the transitional layer. This component is divided into five firmness zones with extra reinforcement for the midsection and a gentler feel elsewhere.

The support core contains pocketed coils designed to move independently from one another, resulting in strong support without excessive motion transfer. Thicker coils line the perimeter to push back against your weight when you lie near the edges of the mattress or get in and out of bed. High-density base foam completes the hybrid design, and a cover made of heat-dissipating Celliant-blend fabric encases the entire mattress.

You can choose between medium (5), medium firm (6), and firm (8) designs for your Elite Hybrid, each with unique strengths. Our testing showed the medium feel was best suited to side and back sleepers weighing less than 130 pounds. This design contours closely to cushion the body, and may sink excessively beneath people who weigh more. The ultra-supportive firm feel was most popular among our side sleepers weighing more than 230 pounds, back sleepers of at least 130 pounds, and stomach sleepers between 130 and 230 pounds. If you’re looking for a balance of cushioning and support, the medium firm feel should be a good fit.

The mattress is available in seven sizes, including a split king for couples who share adjustable beds. If you and your partner have contrasting firmness preferences, you can order a split king with a different feel on each side. Bear offers free shipping throughout the contiguous U.S. Each order comes with a 120-night sleep trial, and the mattress is further backed by a lifetime warranty.

Built with four foam layers over robust zoned coils, the Nolah Evolution provides excellent cradling and contouring to alleviate sore spots in your upper and lower back. Open-cell materials help minimize heat retention, while three firmness levels ensure most people can find a comfortable match regardless of their weight or preferred sleep position.

  • Pros

    1. Open-cell foam layers cushion the body without trapping too much heat

    2. Zoned coils place extra support beneath your midsection

    3. Three firmness levels available

  • Cons

    1. Thick profile requires a fitted sheet with deep pockets

    2. $99 fee for all returns during the sleep trial

Back pain is a major sleep disruptor, and a mattress that reduces aches and soreness can be a gamechanger. The Nolah Evolution 15 is a luxury hybrid with a comfort system consisting of four individual foam layers. Each layer is progressively denser from top to bottom, so you’ll notice some plushness on the surface and a deep, pressure-relieving cradle as you settle into the mattress. Zoned coils also push back against the extra weight in your midsection, so deep sinkage shouldn’t be an issue.

For further comfort optimization, the Evolution 15 is available in three firmness levels. Our tests indicate the medium (5) model provides ample cushioning for those who need it most, including side sleepers up to 230 pounds and back sleepers under 130 pounds. At the other end of the spectrum, the firm (8) design delivers robust support for anyone weighing more than 230 pounds regardless of their sleep position. During our tests, the medium firm (6) model proved most popular. Team members weighing 130 to 230 pounds were particularly impressed with the balanced feel of this design.

All four foam layers share an open-cell composition, meaning the material is engineered to promote airflow and minimize heat retention. Steady circulation through the coil layer and a breathable, moisture-wicking Tencel cover add to the Evolution 15’s stellar temperature control. Since the perimeter coils are reinforced, the mattress also excels at edge support, and the foam layers absorb enough movement to significantly cut down on motion transfer — a nuisance for anyone who loses sleep due to their partner’s nighttime movements.

Nolah offers free ground shipping throughout the contiguous U.S. The company’s standard sleep trial runs for 120 nights, but you can opt out of trial and decrease your up-front costs by as much as $150. The Evolution 15’s standard lifetime warranty covers structural defects as long as you retain original ownership. You can purchase an additional accident plan that protects against stains and other types of physician damage for up to 10 years.

The flippable Plank Firm Luxe features two sleep surfaces, both of which feel remarkably supportive. Our hands-on tests indicate the strong reinforcement is well suited to back and stomach sleepers, particularly those who weigh more than 230 pounds.

  • Pros

    1. Flippable design with an exceptionally firm feel on each side

    2. Optional cooling cover dissipates heat on contact

    3. Available in 12 different sizes

    1. Inadequate cushioning for most side sleepers

Although the idea of a plush, adaptive mattress may sound inviting, many people benefit from a firmer and more supportive sleep surface. The Plank Firm Luxe is one of the most robust mattresses our team has tested. A flippable hybrid, the mattress feels firm (7) on one side and extra firm (9) on the other. We’ve found both surfaces are ideal for people who weigh more than 230 pounds, especially those who primarily sleep on their back or stomach.

The firm side contains quilted fibers beneath the surface, followed by TitanFlex and high-density polyfoam layers. These materials provide light cushioning but shouldn’t contour or hug your body too closely. The extra firm side forgoes the TitanFlex layer, making its surface feel flat and even for any sleeper regardless of how much they weigh. Shared pocketed coils provide solid support to both sides of the mattress. A breathable cotton-microfiber cover helps each surface stay cool.

During our tests, the Firm Luxe earned excellent ratings for edge support and ease of movement. Temperature control was another performance highlight. If you’re an exceptionally hot sleeper, you can upgrade your mattress to include a cooling GlacioTex cover that dissipates heat on contact. Please note this mattress is fairly heavy, so you should only lift and flip it with a partner.

You can choose from 12 different sizes, including standard mattress dimensions, a split California king for couples with adjustable beds, and several sizes designed for RVs. The Firm Luxe carries a below-average sticker price compared to the average hybrid, and ground shipping is free for customers in the contiguous U.S. Your sleep trial runs for 120 nights, and you’ll receive a 10-year warranty if you ultimately decide to keep the mattress.

Featuring a responsive latex comfort layer, the Birch Mattress is a great option for anyone with frequent pain and pressure points who dislikes the deep “hugging” contour of memory foam. This hybrid is also a solid match for hot sleepers, people who sleep close to the edges of their sleep surface, and shoppers seeking a durable mattress that holds up well over time.

  • Pros

    1. Responsive and durable latex hybrid design

    2. Breathable and moisture-wicking components help you stay cool and dry

    3. Materials hold GOTS and Rainforest Alliance certifications

  • Cons

    1. Potentially too bouncy for couples

    2. Returns subject to a $99 processing charge

Many associate pain and pressure relief with soft, adaptive mattresses. This may be true for some people, but others need a firmer, more responsive surface with gentle contouring to experience less discomfort. The latter are good candidates for the Birch Mattress, a medium firm (6) latex hybrid that cradles the body while pushing back against the sleeper’s weight. The result is a very balanced feel for those who need extra support from their sleep surface.

The mattress begins with wool and rayon batting sewn into the cover. This material serves as a fire barrier and also has moisture-wicking properties to help you stay dry. A second batting layer contains pure, GOTS-certified organic wool for added cooling. Talalay latex is used in the comfort system, giving the Birch considerable bounce on the surface. The latex is certified by the Rainforest Alliance, ensuring the rubber trees used to produce the latex are sustainably grown.

The support core contains pocketed coils over a second wool-rayon fire barrier layer. The coils are zoned with extra perimeter reinforcement, so you should feel stable lying near the edges of the mattress or getting in and out of bed. Steady air currents flow through the coils to help the interior maintain a comfortable temperature, and the latex is ventilated for extra airflow near the surface. Even by latex hybrid standards, the mattress sleeps exceptionally cool. Our tests show the Birch’s mid-range feel is best suited to people weighing 130 to 230 pounds across all position groups. Heavier side sleepers and lighter back and stomach sleepers may also find the mattress comfortable.

The Birch’s price-point falls below that of the average hybrid model and shipping is free to all 50 states. Each order comes with a sleep trial spanning 100 nights, and those who choose to keep their mattress also receive a 25-year warranty.

People who weigh more than 230 pounds are ideal candidates for the Titan Plus, a foam hybrid built with dense foam layers and robust pocketed coils. The perimeter is reinforced to minimize sinkage when you get in and out of bed, while a responsive surface helps you move across the bed without feeling stuck.

  • Pros

    1. Very durable thanks to quality construction and materials

    2. Specifically designed for heavier sleepers

    3. Above-average edge support and temperature regulation

  • Cons

    1. Side sleepers may need more cushioning

This firm (8) mattress’ durable construction and supportive coils offer excellent support to sleepers weighing more than 230 pounds, no matter their preferred sleeping position. Its hybrid design promotes breathability, creating a cool sleep experience, and it’s a good choice for active sleepers, who will be able to move easily across the Titan Plus’s responsive surface.

Despite its ability to provide a bouncy, easy-to-navigate surface and above-average edge support, this mattress also offers good motion isolation, making it a good option for couples or those who share a bed with a pet or child.

The mattress is constructed with a 1-inch top comfort layer of gel-infused memory foam over a 2-inch layer of TitanFlex foam that adds cushioning and responsiveness to the bed, while 6 inches of individually wrapped pocketed coils and an additional 2 inches of high-density polyfoam create a sturdy support core.

For those concerned about sleeping warm despite the mattress’ breathability, the company offers an optional cooling top panel, which can be sewn into the surface of the mattress for an additional charge.

This bed is available exclusively on Brooklyn Bedding’s website. Shoppers can choose a twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, California king, or split California king mattress size. The Titan Plus is made to order in Brooklyn Bedding’s Arizona factory and shipped in a box. The company offers free shipping and returns to customers in the contiguous U.S. Each mattress also includes a 10-year limited warranty and a 120-night sleep trial.

Data-Driven Results You Can Trust

Our Sleep Foundation team genuinely wants to provide you with the best information about sleep products to help you make a fully informed purchasing decision. We have years of experience in the sleep product industry, and we personally research and test each product we review.

To provide the most accurate and detailed information possible, we tested each USA-made mattress and scored them on several areas of performance, including durability, pressure relief, and temperature neutrality. We have a variety of sleepers on our team of varying body types and preferred sleep positions to ensure we get the best and most wide-ranging results.

How to Choose a Mattress Made in the USA

When choosing a mattress made in the USA, it’s important to consider the design, materials, pricing, and performance of the product. Other considerations include the company’s policies, such as trial periods and warranties, as well as your sleep needs and lifestyle.

If you plan to purchase the mattress in a store, you’ll need to find a company with a location nearby. However, many U.S. companies provide free shipping on beds purchased within the contiguous United States, making ordering mattresses from other areas of the country convenient and affordable.

What to Look For in a Mattress

When shopping for a mattress, we encourage you to pay attention to the specific details of each model instead of just the marketing materials from the mattress company, which can be vague and misleading.

We also urge you to consider your bed preferences. If you already have a specific material you prefer, such as memory foam or latex, it will narrow your search and save time.

To make your purchasing decision easier, we’ve put together a list of the top things to look for when buying an American-made bed. When searching for your ideal mattress, these factors will help ensure you get a quality product that meets your unique needs while fitting within your budget.

Price
Pricing is an important factor in any mattress purchasing decision, and models vary widely in cost. A mattress’ pricing generally hinges on its design, features, materials, size, and where it’s made.

Mattresses made in the USA may come at a higher price tag than those made in other countries, due to higher labor costs, the use of high-quality materials, and more stringent safety and environmental regulations. However, many shoppers prefer U.S.-made mattresses because higher local wages and stricter regulations support the health and safety of their community and local economy.

Sleeping Position
Mattresses perform differently depending on your specific sleep style. You should consider if you sleep on your side, stomach, back, or a combination of the three. It’s essential that shoppers look for a mattress designed to accommodate their preferred sleep position.

For example, memory foam mattresses generally aren’t the best choice for stomach sleepers, who often require the firmer support of a hybrid or innerspring mattress. However, memory foam models may offer a side sleeper excellent pressure relief.

Quality Materials
The materials used in a bed’s design determine its breathability, supportiveness, firmness level, pricing, ease of cleaning, and durability.

Shoppers may benefit from researching a company’s policies on material sourcing. Some companies make an effort to source their materials locally, which may be preferable to people who want to support American jobs or limit their carbon footprint with local-only purchases.

For those seeking a USA-made product, it’s important to clarify that the bed is actually made in the U.S. instead of simply assembled there. To do so, look for the terminology “Made in USA” instead of “Assembled in the USA.”

Firmness Level
The firmness level of a mattress plays an important role in how it supports a sleeper. A softer mattress may provide excellent pressure relief and support to a side sleeper, while a firm mattress might help a stomach sleeper maintain proper posture.

If you aren’t sure which firmness level works best for you, you may want to visit a mattress store to try out several options in person.

Pressure Relief
If a mattress doesn’t support a sleeper correctly, it can lead to an uncomfortable sleep experience, along with aches upon waking. A mattress with good pressure relief limits stress on key points of the body, such as the hips and shoulders.

Motion Isolation
For those who share the bed, a mattress with good motion isolation helps prevent sleep disturbances when their partner moves around or gets in and out of bed. Mattresses that contain memory foam often perform very well in this category.

Temperature Regulation
Many people tend to overheat while sleeping. To maintain a comfortable temperature, shoppers should look for a mattress with good temperature regulation.

Mattresses that regulate temperature well typically include breathable materials and a construction that promotes adequate airflow. Generally, coil-based beds offer better airflow, while all-foam mattresses, especially those with thick or dense memory foam layers, tend to trap heat.

Edge Support
Edge support allows people to sit or sleep on the edge of a mattress without experiencing significant sagging. Those who like to sleep toward the edge of the bed, or people who have trouble getting in and out of bed, may prefer a mattress with good edge support. Many mattresses include reinforced edges to prevent sinkage along the perimeter of the mattress.

Contouring
Contouring refers to how well a mattress conforms to the shape of the sleeper’s body. Materials with high point elasticity such as memory foam typically contour better than other materials like polyfoam.

Mattress Type
The type of mattress a shopper chooses can change their entire sleep experience, so it’s vital that you put careful thought into the design that’s best for you. Most sleepers can find a suitable bed among the three most common types: foam, innerspring, and hybrid.

Why Buy a Mattress Made in the USA?

When deciding whether to purchase a mattress made internationally or one manufactured in the U.S., there are many reasons to opt for the American-made mattress.

For example, you may want to contribute to your local economy and support businesses that provide good working conditions for employees. You also may wish to limit environmental impacts by buying from American companies that won’t need to ship your mattress overseas, thus reducing their carbon footprint.

Finally, you may prefer a product that has spent less time sitting in a warehouse, or you may want to take advantage of American manufacturing standards, which can affect the safety, environmental impacts, and quality of the product.

Manufacturing Standards
Products sold in the U.S. must meet multiple safety, environmental, and quality standards. In addition, the employer must follow certain guidelines regarding workplace practices.

In order to manufacture products in the USA, companies must adhere to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards and other labor laws that ensure a safe and fair workplace.

They also must follow safety standards provided by the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, which include regulations on chemicals used during manufacturing and the flammability of the product.

Finally, America’s environmental regulations are stricter than those in many other parts of the world, giving buyers peace of mind that their product is being manufactured with less of an impact to the environment.

Working Conditions
Under laws created by the U.S. government, all workers have the right to a safe workplace.

OSHA was created to enforce worker safety standards. In order to meet OSHA’s standards, workplaces must follow safety regulations that require eliminating or reducing hazards.

For example, employers must use the safest chemicals feasibly possible to create products. They must also provide proper protective equipment for employees, such as gloves and masks, when necessary.

Employers in the U.S. must also follow labor laws that ensure products aren’t made using child labor or by employees making less than the minimum wage.

Buying Local
Buying American-made products can stimulate the region’s economy, create new jobs for the community you live in, and improve quality of life for local workers. When people shop locally it also supports the overall U.S. economy.

Less Time Packed Up & Vacuum Sealed
When you buy a product made locally, it often spends less time sitting in a warehouse or vacuum sealed in plastic.

Some American-based brands even forgo the mattress compression process entirely, meaning there should be no chemical smell of a new mattress when you receive it.

Carbon Footprint & Environmental Manufacturing Processes
Products made and shipped close to home likely won’t spend as much time in transit, which can help reduce carbon output during the shipping process.

In addition, shoppers can look for American manufacturers that attempt to reduce their environmental impact in other ways.

To find those manufacturers, look for third-party certifications that show a company’s dedication to sustainability and sourcing environmentally friendly materials, such as the American Sustainable Business Council, Green America, or USDA Organic.

How Can You Tell if a Mattress Is Made in the USA?

Most companies manufacturing mattresses in the USA advertise that fact, since many shoppers prefer an American-made product.

To comply with Federal Trade Commission standards, a product marketed as being “American-made” or “Made in USA” must be “all or virtually all” manufactured in the U.S. However, the FTC does not certify companies’ claims, and no preapproval is required before a company can advertise its products as USA-made.

Most companies will include information on where a mattress is made either on the product page or “about us” page on the company website. Shoppers can also contact most companies directly for information on the manufacturing process.

Keep an Eye Out for These Mattress Certifications

Purchasing a mattress manufactured in the U.S. gives many shoppers peace of mind. Since the mattress and the company’s manufacturing process must meet government standards while adhering to strict regulations, a certain level of quality is ensured.

However, for shoppers in search of a top-quality mattress that meets high environmental standards, third-party certifications can provide an additional layer of quality control.

CertiPUR-US: The CertiPUR-US certification provides assurance that foams are made without heavy metals, ozone depleters, formaldehyde, certain flame retardants, or phthalates regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Additionally, this certification indicates low volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions for indoor air quality.

Eco-conscious shoppers may prefer a mattress with this certification to ensure it is held to standards that go above and beyond government regulations.

OEKO-TEX Standard 100: The OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certification ensures that a product has been tested for a variety of harmful substances and poses no harm to human health.The testing goes beyond what’s mandated in government regulations, and the certification holds products to strict health and safety requirements and quality assurance standards.

GREENGUARD Gold: The GREENGUARD Gold certification provides independent verification that a product does not impact indoor air quality in a way that negatively affects human health. The GREENGUARD Gold certification has even stricter standards than the regular GREENGUARD certification, which ensures that products used indoors meet chemical emissions standards.

The criteria for a GREENGUARD Gold certification is more stringent because it takes into account the needs of sensitive individuals, such as seniors and children. Products that are GREENGUARD Gold certified can be used in health care facilities and schools without concern for the impact to air quality.

Frequently Asked Questions About American-Made Mattresses

What is the price range of an American-made mattress?

Most quality USA-made mattresses cost between $1,000 and $2,000. However, the price range varies widely depending on several factors, including the quality and types of materials used in the mattress’ construction, as well as its design, sizing, and features.
The type of mattress also plays a part in its price. For example, innerspring and all-foam mattresses often come at a lower price than hybrid models. However, this is not true in every case and each mattress should be considered for its unique features.

What types of mattresses are made in the USA?

Companies make every type of mattress imaginable in the United States, from all-foam to innerspring to hybrid. No matter what body weight or sleep preferences you have, a USA-made bed that meets your needs should be easy to find and purchase. In fact, many U.S. manufacturers offer several mattress types at varying firmness levels to meet the individual needs of the widest array of sleepers possible.

Are there any “Made in the USA” certifications to look for?

While the U.S. government does regulate companies’ American-made claims, it does not offer a “Made in the USA” certification. Companies do not need to seek approval before claiming products are made in the U.S. and can simply add that phrasing to their advertising.
However, if a company claims its products are American-made but does not comply with the “Made in USA” standards, it will be in breach of the law for false advertising. If reported, the company may face legal consequences.
