Since starting this site, I have been able to conduct dozens of mattress reviews from online mattress start-ups to big name retail brands. Below are mattresses that I have personally tested.

With the explosion of new online mattress startups, people have been eager to try them out. However, most of these companies do not have showrooms spread across the country. It’s impossible to try them all out in one store like a typical mattress company. I have slept on all these mattresses and can help guide you to the mattress that best suits your individual needs.

Please note, this is not a ranking system. Look at each metric and decide which is most important to you. Having said that, there are some brands that stand out above others such as Nest Bedding, Novosbed,  Lull and Luxi that have consistently impressed me in terms of quality and price.

Please consider the following as you make a decision:

  • While I don’t get paid to review mattresses, I do receive a commission if a mattress is purchased through my site.
  • Some people are more sensitive to initial off gassing to others which may weigh on your decision. This it temporary and will go away in a week’s time.
  • Do you sleep on your stomach? You should consider a firmer mattress.
  • Does your partner wake you up at night? Go with a mattress that has less motion transfer.
  • Do you wake up sore in the morning? Consider an all foam mattress.
  • How about price? One thing I have learned in this business is that price doesn’t always equal quality.
  • If you don’t like memory foam there are a few inner spring companies coming online, I list my favorites below.
  • If you are looking for natural bedding I have recommendations for that as well.

If you have any questions about these mattress reviews, please email me at ben@sleepsherpa.com I am happy to answer any specific questions you may have!

 

 

Memory Foam Mattresses

This is the largest category of mattresses. Many of the new startups created a mattress in a box made of layers of glued foam with the advent of roll packing machines that could compress the foam into boxes that can be shipped via UPS, FedEx or a similar carrier.

Inner Spring Mattresses

These mattresses have inner springs in typically in the form of pocket coils. Some are delivered by a freight carrier since they are not roll packed but you can purchase them online. A growing trend is hybrid mattresses that include both memory foam and coils so that you get contouring and a little bit of bounce too.

Tempurpedic

I have owned many mattresses during my lifetime and although each person is different when it comes to sleep preferences, I can say that quality matters. But more expensive doesn’t always mean quality.  You can see from my reviews above that some of the best rated mattresses aren’t all that expensive. You just need to know which companies are reputable and stand by their product.

Mattress and bedding technology is developing rapidly and these mattresses are at the forefront of that development. If you haven’t upgraded your mattress in the past 5 years, you are in for a treat!
