Finding Your Mattress

Searching for the right bed is cumbersome. There are options aplenty and tons of variables to consider. Instead of sifting through a wide swath of mattresses, we have highlighted the models that out perform the rest in their category.

Below, you’ll find the top mattresses for every budget, build, sleep position, preference, and need. Don’t worry if you just want to see our top recommendations; we have that, too. And when you really want to get into the finer details, take a look to our Mattress Reviews Database for in-depth reviews on every bed we’ve ever tested.

Sleep Position

Your sleeping position is one of the biggest considerations you should take into account when shopping for a mattress. While most mattresses are designed to meet the needs of a wide range of sleepers, we’ve identified those that are particularly well-suited for each of the three sleeper types below. If you are combination sleeper, we suggest using the position you find yourself waking up in most frequently.

The Best Mattresses for Side Sleepers

Side sleeping is the most common sleeping position and most side sleepers like a bed with a bit more give around the shoulders and hips while still keeping your spine aligned. Memory foam and all-foam mattresses can be a great option for side sleepers. Check out all of our recommendations below.

The Best Mattresses for Stomach Sleepers

For those sleepers that find sleeping on their stomach most comfortable, we tend to recommend firmer mattresses to ensure your hips don’t sink in too deeply, keeping your spine aligned. Check out all of our recommendations as well as helpful information about stomach sleeping below.

Price

For many shoppers, price is an most important factor in deciding which mattress to purchase. We’ve identified great options for every type of shopper whether you’re on a budget or feel like you can’t possibly put a price on sleep.

Mattress Type

Feel is just as important as firmness to some shoppers. If you love the “bounce” of an innerspring mattress or the conforming “hug” of a memory foam mattress, we’ll help you find something that meets your specific needs. Below you’ll find information about the four main mattress types as well as well as performance differences and recommendations based on our internal testing process.

Review Methodology – How We Rate Mattresses

SleepFoundation.org is run by a dedicated team of mattress experts with years of experience in the industry. Our ratings and recommendations are determined by a combination of in-house-testing, customer experiences, and insider knowledge — resulting in accurate and comprehensive reviews. By utilizing all of the resources and expertise at our disposal, we hope to help you find the perfect mattress for your specific needs. To learn more about our testing process and methodologies, check out our full process.

Our Performance Ratings

We use the following performance categories to rate mattresses:

Motion Isolation

Motion isolation refers to how much of the sleep surface moves when a sleeper switches positions or moves while on the mattress. A mattress with good motion isolation will isolate movement to just the immediate area around the moving sleeper. With poor motion isolation, the entire sleep surface will move in response to one sleeper’s movements.

This is particularly relevant to co-sleepers, as soon lighter sleepers are easily disturbed by the movement of their sleeping partner.

Pressure Relief

One important factor is a mattress’s ability to minimize pressure among common pressure points such as the shoulders, lower back and hips. A bed with good pressure relief can ease the chronic pain of the user, while a bed with bad pressure relief can actually cause pain during waking hours.

Softer mattresses that conform closely to the body tend to better pressure relief. Nonetheless it’s important to get a mattress firm and supportive enough to keep your spine aligned.

Temperature Control

Many sleepers have a tendency to sleep hot at night, often waking up in the middle of the night sweating and uncomfortably warm. For these people, it’s important to sleep on a mattress that doesn’t trap too much body heat and provides sufficient airflow throughout the mattress.

Edge Support

Edge support refers to how sturdy the edges of a mattress are. If you’re sitting on the edge of the bed, sleeping with a partner, or trying to get on and off of the mattress with ease, edge support will play a huge factor.

Ease of Movement

Depending on the type of mattress you’re on, moving around or switching sleeping positions can range in difficulty and effort. Closely-conforming foam mattresses tend to produce a feeling of getting ‘stuck’, making you expend energy in order to move.

Sex

The biggest determining factor in whether a mattress is good for sex is the responsiveness, or ‘bounce’ of a mattress. This allows for ease of movement without the feeling of working against the surface of a mattress. Edge support is also a relevant factor, as it allows you to use the entire surface of the mattress.

Off-Gassing

Mattresses that are constructed of synthetic foams such as memory foam and polyfoam have a tendency to temporarily emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs). VOCs produce an odor that some find unpleasant. These compounds are generally considered harmless. A good off-gassing rating refers to a lack of VOC odors.
