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.
Performance mattresses are the next generation of mattresses. They can often be customized to particular sleep preferences or offer a new technology beyond just memory foam. This category includes some really innovative products.
The Luxury category includes mattresses at a higher price point. They may be more labor intensive to make such as hand tufting or incorporate more expensive materials.

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!
