Staff, courtesy of Allswell

While keeping resolutions can be difficult, if you’re looking to improve the quality of your sleep this year, a new mattress is a great place to start. We all know that sleep is an essential part of good mental, physical and emotional health, and that it’s also a great way to ensure full recovery from your workout when you’re on an intense training cycle.

Mattresses may not be the first thing that springs to mind when thinking of innovation, but in recent years there have been many changes to make them less expensive, easier to set up, and more tailored to your unique sleeping experience. With plenty of options out there, we’ve rounded up some of our favorites to make the shopping process that little bit easier. Below you will find buying advice and reviews on some of our favorite mattresses.

What to consider

When looking for a new mattress, firmness and material are the two most important things to consider. Most mattresses are either made entirely of foam or have at least some foam elements. This provides both support and cushioning. Some more traditional mattresses have springs that give it a firmer, springier feel, and some have a pillow top that adds to its softness but doesn’t add to the mattress’ support.

Even if you choose an all-foam mattress, that doesn’t mean it has to be soft and squishy. Memory foam is more textured than you think and can actually make a very firm, supportive bed if you choose the right one. However, memory foam can get a little warm. So if you’re a hot sleeper and opt for a memory foam bed, make sure it has cooling elements like copper, bamboo, or gel infusions.

Consider your sleeping position to determine the firmness that’s right for you. Back and stomach sleepers do best on a medium-firm to firm mattress as they need more support for their back and neck, while side sleepers can get away with a softer mattress that conforms to the contours of the body. That said, if you know you prefer a certain firmness for your best night’s sleep, go with your gut.

As we have decided

To find the best options among the many mattresses on the market, we researched the most popular models available. We looked at peer-reviewed reviews from trusted sources, e.g Good household and CNET. We then considered price, materials, size, strength and durability. Finally, we consulted more than 54,000 reviews from buyers of these models on sites like Amazon to choose these eight.


Best bed in a box

Original foam mattress

key specifications

  • Sizes: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, California King
  • Strength: mmedium company

The Casper mattress was one of the original beds in a box and remains one of the best to date. It is made from memory foam and is ideal for all types of sleepers. Because it’s available on Amazon, it arrives quickly, so it’s a great option if you need a mattress in an emergency. It consists of three layers of foam: the top layer is perforated to ensure breathability, while the two underneath provide support and cushioning.

If you’re looking for more than just a mattress, you can also buy it in a set that includes pillows, mattress covers, and even a bed frame.


Best foldable mattress

Copper infused memory foam mattress

key specifications

  • Sizes: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, California King
  • Strength: Firm and soft

Not only does this bed look different than a typical mattress, but it also features a completely unique design. Unlike most mattresses, this one is foldable, with a soft side and a firm side, making it a great option for a guest room, or for someone not quite sure what firmness they prefer.

The unique padding creates breathable pathways and is enriched with copper that helps you stay cool by using thermal technology to draw heat away from your body and regulate your temperature.


Best soft mattress

Chill memory foam mattress

key specifications

  • Sizes: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, California King
  • Strength: medium soft

Many mattresses tend to be firmer – even if they’re made out of memory foam – but this one lives up to its name, giving you a soft cocoon to sink into every night. It’s definitely on the softer side, making it best for side sleepers, and it has a cooling cover to keep you from overheating at night.

Because it’s so soft, it also has good movement isolation, but lacks some edge support, which can make the perimeter of the mattress break more easily.


Best Organic Mattress

Green Mattress

key specifications

  • Sizes: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, California King
  • Strength: festivals

Avocado mattresses are popular for their focus on sustainable, organic materials. This one uses certified organic cotton, latex and wool to create a firm latex foam mattress.

It’s ideal for back and stomach sleepers, and if you’re a side sleeper (or just want more padding) you can opt for the pillow option.

It also has sewn-in handles that make it super easy to move around, whether you’re simply rotating it on your bed frame or moving it to a new apartment.


Best overall result

Classic mattress

Key Specifications:

  • Sizes:Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, Split King, King, Split California King, California King
  • Strength: Plush soft, luxury firm, firm

This mattress is on the pricier side, but according to customer reviews, it’s worth the price. It has an average rating of 4.9/5 stars – almost a perfect score – from over 2,000 customers. The bed is super soft and incredibly tall, with height options of 11.5 and 14.5 inches. It’s also available in three different firmness levels: plush soft, luxuriously firm, and firm.

Best basic mattress

Original adaptive foam mattress

key specifications

  • Sizes: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, California King

Tuft & Needle makes quality mattresses at a reasonable price. This memory foam mattress might not have all the bells and whistles of some of the other options on this list, but it does provide a comfortable, supportive surface you’ll want to sleep on. It has a soft cover to keep you cool at night and the whole bed is non-toxic. Being medium firm, it’s great for all sleeping positions and has a 100 day trial period so you can try it out to see if it’s right for you.


Best budget mattress

10″ Bed-in-a-Box Hybrid Mattress

key specifications

  • Sizes: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, California King
  • Strength: medium firm

It may be cheap, but this Allswell mattress doesn’t skimp on comfort. Personally, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this mattress for the past three years and have wondered whether I do or not Yes, really having to get out of bed more than once.

The coils in the mattress provide ample support and ensure you won’t be woken up if your partner changes positions or gets up at night, while the pillow topper provides the perfect amount of cushion while you sleep.

It also arrives rolled up in a box and only requires one or two people to set it up. After you cut open the packaging, it puffs up in a few hours and has no lingering odors.


Best cooling mattress

Not only is it incredibly cushioned, but it also features premium cooling technology that can keep you up to 8 degrees colder at night. It is also compatible with the Tempur-Pedic Power Base, which allows the bed to be adjusted to different positions. The mattress consists of four layers of cooling material that give it that characteristic breathable feel. You can also choose either a soft or firm option depending on your sleep preferences.
