Quick Links:

We spend one-third of our life sleeping or at least attempting to sleep. That is alot of time spent in bed. It’s been reported that the average American will spend about 36 years of their lives retired in bed. A survey also found that most Americans confidently admit that they enjoy spending time in their bed, but only 50% confirm getting quality sleep. It’s little wonder, then, that people don’t mind spending a fortune for that perfectly comfortable furniture!

Interestingly, the same study revealed that 35% of Americans prioritize style over comfort. Aesthetic has become one of the main predictors of consumer buying behavior. Many equate aesthetic to comfort, blurring the fine line between the two.

The bed may well be one of the most important purchases you will ever make. If you do enough research and do not settle for what is readily available, you are likely to improve the quality of your sleep. Buying a high-quality mattress, for example, can assure you of a comfortable sleep for as long as a decade.

But just like any major purchase, buying a mattress can be an anxiety-driven process. The last thing you want is a cheap and uncomfortable mattress that you’ll spend a third of your life lying on! This is what this article is for. Our comprehensive guide will help you choose the best mattress.

Things to Consider

The bed you sleep in—specifically, your mattress—is the most important thing when it comes to getting a good night’s sleep. When we get enough sleep, we wake up feeling refreshed and ready to face the day. The amount of sleep we get affects how we look, feel, and do work in general. It has a major impact on our overall quality of life, helping us thrive.

Getting the right sleep ensures a healthy immune system, too! Because sleep deprivation negatively affects our bodies, both the quantity and quality of our sleep are of paramount importance. Teens need at least 8 hours or an average of 9¼ hours of uninterrupted sleep for a fully rejuvenated mind and body, according to the National Sleep Foundation.

As we grow older, however, our sleep need will depend upon various factors such as genetics, physiological factors, sex, age, and the amount of sleep we usually get. Sufficient sleep for adults, as defined by the National Sleep Foundation, is sleep duration that is followed by a voluntary awakening. This will leave us feeling refreshed and fully functional for the day.

Sleep restriction significantly affects your mood, performance, health, and most importantly, mortality. When sleep restriction becomes chronic, these consequences become more pervasive. In the same manner, oversleeping can be quite dangerous too. Getting 9 hours of sleep or more is associated with an increased risk of death.

All things considered; get the right sleep quantity and quality. And it all starts with the right mattress.

Type of Mattresses

There are many options in the market today. Each caters to different types of sleepers. Mattresses may be made of innerspring, fabric, foam , water or air. The most popular type are innerspring and memory foam mattresses which are heavily available in-store and online. In terms of consumer reviews, memory foam mattresses get more favorable reviews.

Foam

Intro Mattress-Foam

Manufacturers use polyurethane to achieve the foam layers that make foam mattresses comfortable. Some manufacturers use latex instead of polyurethane, while there are a few that feature both materials. Having a robust polyurethane base ensures that it can be used on all kinds of bed frames. Whatever size bed you prefer, foam mattresses are sure to offer you the best quality sleep. Arguably, the best memory foam mattress combines layers of memory foam with a specialist medical grade base form. Foam softens from continued use.

Modern mattresses are made of memory. Memory foam is a foldable material that responds to the sleeper’s body shape, temperature and weight. This is most recommended for those who are suffering from chronic body pain. The memory foam will absorb your weight as you sleep to relieve pressure on your joints. Despite the sinking motion you will experience in the memory foam mattresses, this is rather ideal for maintaining a good posture. It helps in aligning your spine horizontally. Sleeping on your side is recommended if you want to achieve this result.

Innerspring

Innerspring mattresses are the traditional type. It is made of steel coils that are encased in special layers of cushioning. It has a durable foundation that supports the entire upholstery. These mattresses have a core that keeps that springs and coils that keep them intact. Innerspring coils are usually individually encased. Of course, some hybrid models are made with more layers of foam which covers the innerspring, making the bed extremely comfortable. Shifting positions in this bed is very easy, but those which are traditionally designed the bounce can be quite annoying.

Adjustable Air

Airbeds are a great alternative to the usual mattresses we see in stores. It has easily become popular especially among young people. Instead of having support cores built of foam or spring, airbeds feature individualized air chambers. Most airbeds have at least two air chambers. More expensive brands contain 10 or more air chambers. This makes inflation and deflation possible. As the name suggests, you can adjust the firmness of the mattress to your preference. The package usually comes with an electronic pump which makes adjustments fairly easy.

Airbeds with manual adjustments are still widely available in the market, but some newer models feature remote controls. With the current technology, some come with dual-firmness settings. This will is a unique feature that allows individual preferences on either side.

Bed-in-a-Box

The bed-in-a-box mattresses revolutionized the bed and mattress industry. In 2016, Casper, a UK-based company, became one of the first bed-in-a-box companies that solidified the concept in the world market. Through the ingenious delivery method, customers need not wait for several weeks for their order to arrive. Most importantly, the mattress is rolled and compressed in a box. All you need to do is to open the box, and your bed will be ready in no time. In terms of materials, a bed-in-a-box is usually made of foam or both memory foam and springs.

Mattress Firmness

 

Watch: What is your ideal sleep position?

The firmness of your mattress will greatly affect the quality of your sleep. Consequently, the type of firmness that is ideal for you will depend on what kind of sleeper you are, as well as your height, weight, and age. We have listed the different kinds of firmness that mattresses may offer.

Soft and medium soft

Soft and medium-soft mattresses are recommended for side sleepers. Because it leans towards softness more than firmness, this is best for those who shift from various sleeping positions during the night. If you sleep like this, you should consider getting a memory foam mattress. It will surely relieve you from any pressure on your spine or joints as you change your sleeping position.

Side sleeping is the most common sleeping position among adults. According to Sleep.org by the National Sleep Foundation, 15% of adults sleep on their side. This position can help reduce snoring, acid reflux, as well as back and neck pain. Sleeping on your sides is also the best choice for people who have sleep apnea. The downside, however, it can lead to wrinkles since your face pushes against the pillow or your mattress.

Medium Firm

For those who lie flat on the back or sleep in the supine position, we recommend the medium-firm mattress. Having a medium-firm mattress can provide the utmost back support. Even though this is the healthiest option, only 8% of people sleep in this position. Sleeping flat on your back gives the most support to your head, neck, and spine and allows these body parts to rest in a neutral position. This is also best for those who have terrible acid reflux, especially when you use a pillow that elevates and supports your head. Sleeping with your head elevated and positioned in such a way that your stomach is below your esophagus will prevent food or acid from coming up to your digestive tract. However, sleeping on your back can be bad for those who have sleep apnea. Plus, snoring may be worsened.

Firm

Firm mattresses are ideal for those who sleep facing down or on their stomach – the prone position. When sleeping on your stomach, your snoring will reduce but stomach sleepers put pressure on their muscles and joints. This could also lead to numbness, muscle pain, irritated nerves and tingling. Sleeping on a firm mattress will give you a comfortable and stable position while giving your back the necessary support.

Mattress Size

Manufacturers often produce mattresses in 6 standard sizes – Twin, Twin XL, Full, Full XL, Queen, California King, and King. Sizes may vary depending on the manufacturer and model. Surely though, each mattress size is designed to ensure a night of quality sleep.

Watch: 6 Mattress Sizes - Tips to Avoid Picking the Wrong Mattress Size

Twin 38” inches x 75” inches

The twin size mattress is the smallest among the bunch and is designed for single sleepers. Plus, it will save you space when you live in a tight space. Naturally, this size is the least expensive choice.

Twin XL 38” inches x 75” inches

The Twin XL has the same width as that of the Twin mattress but is 5 inches longer. This gives additional length especially for someone taller. It comes with the same features as a Twin mattress, the same compact size, same comfort, but with added space for growing teens.

Full 54” inches x 75” inches

Full-size mattress or the double is wider than the Twin. Compared to the Twin, this mattress size is ideal for single sleepers who want spacious and comfortable space to sleep. This used to be the standard mattress size for couples, but with the introduction of Queen size mattresses, the full size became obsolete. But for couples who are only starting, this is a more affordable choice.

Full XL 54” inches x 80” inches

Full XL size mattress has the same width as that of the Full size but is 5 inches longer. This is great for someone taller and those who do not want to be intimidated with the space. However, the Full XL still cannot accommodate two sleepers but is ideal for active single sleepers.

Queen 60” inches x 80” inches

The gold standard in the mattress industry. It is designed with a width suitable for two persons, and length that caters to the tallest people. The Queen is the most cost-effective when it comes to surface and price and is ideal for couples especially those who are making the best out of tight space.

California King 72” inches x 84” inches

If you are a tall person who is sick of your feet dangling off the end of your bed, the California Kind is the best option for you. What it lacks in width, it compensates for its length. The extra 4 inches in length gives the California King its unique feature. It is the longest of all the standard mattress sizes. Regardless if you are sharing or not, Cal King is always a great solution for tall people.

King 76” inches x 80” inches

Designed for a king! The King size mattress is the biggest among all of the choices and is the best for couples. With this size, couples will have a comfortable night’s sleep even if both of them are active sleepers. Of course, the King size mattress is the most expensive and requires enough space.

Specifications

 Review-Casper-SpecificationsImage Source

Changing the mattress industry, The Casper Mattress’ innovative design features four premium layers or premium components – comfort layer, pressure-relieving layer or contour layer, the trademark Zoned SupportTM and the base foundation layer. The mattress is covered with a soft polyester and rayon blend that securely cases the all-foam mattress. It gives the product a latex feel which gives the bouncy, responsive and naturally cooling feel you want as you sleep. As it is placed as the top layer, it ensures mobility that is recommended for active and combination sleepers.

The first layer is a breathable, open-cell foam that provides better airflow to the entire mattress. Breathable foams are perfect for those who sleep warm. Other foams trap heat, but since Casper uses open-cell foams equipped with tiny pores that allow hot air to escape.

The second layer is the Pressure-relieving layer that absorbs the sleeper’s weight and transfers the pressure from your pressure-prone areas. It is an all memory foam section that allows contouring and sinkage, making sleep more comfortable. Since it is ingeniously placed at the bottom of the comfort layer, it helps reduce overheating, leaving you with a cool feeling all night long. Casper’s trademarked Zoned SupportTM is, arguably, what sets The Casper Mattress apart from the competitors. Zoned support supplies that extra pressure relief and comfort just where your body needs. Regardless of how you sleep or in what position you sleep in, the Zoned SupportTM will give your body the comfortable alignment for a perfect posture. You are sure to get the “just right” feeling that Casper promises.

The Casper is 12” inches thick and offers the perfect balance of soft and firm, ideal for all body types. With the zoned support, you will get the optimal support under the shoulders, under the hips, and under the legs. Reasonably less expensive than the Leesa Hybrid Mattress, it is priced at $895.00 and comes with free delivery and returns via UPS in the United States and Canada. Lastly, you can sleep on it for 100 nights, risk-free trial complete with the mattress, pillow, and bedding. And with over 70,000 mattresses donated, Casper continues its plight to providing comfort to everyone.

The Saatva Classic offers three firmness levels – soft, medium, or firm. You get to decide what you want for your mattress without worrying about difference in quality or cost. Saatva claims that 82% of its patrons choose the Luxury Firm. The luxury firm technology will give you the comfort level you only get to experience in luxury hotels. It perfectly balances comfort and uplifting support to reduce pressure pain. If you prefer a deep, body-hugging softness, we recommend that you choose the Saatva Plush Soft, especially if you are a lightweight. You will get softer foams with extra padding around the pillow top. The cushiony feel will surely give you a good night’s sleep.

Lastly, you can go with the Saatva Firm if you do not want the sinking feeling you get in a softer material. Saatva Firm utilizes firmer foams which provides a balanced resistance allowing you to lie on top of the mattress. This is best for those who sleep in a supine position, prone position and those with heavier body types. If your doctor recommends that you get a firmer mattress, this one is perfect for you.

Review-Nectar Layers

The first layer is a 1” inch Quilted Gel Memory Foam plus a Cooling Cover. It is made of custom-milled fabric which allows the mattress to breathe as it absorbs your body temperature. The top layer is quilted and compressed to secure maximum comfort without unnecessary bulk. With the memory foam, heat is pulled away from your body as you sleep, relieving body heat. Increased air circulation is necessary to keep the temperature at bay when you are at rest, and this layer is designed to keep an optimal comfort level.

The Plank by Brooklyn Bedding mattress is the only two-sided mattress featured on this list. It offers unique two firmness levels in an ergonomic design. Plus, if you choose to add a cooling panel on both sides, you can always flip your mattress depending on your sleeping needs. Plank is best for sleepers who prefer sleeping on a firm bed, rather than sinking into a soft foam. One side of the Plank delivers an ultra-firm surface that is flatter in comparison to other mattresses. It is recommended for those who have chronic back pain and are advised to sleep on a flat surface. Because it is flat and firm, it creates a neutral spine position that is best for maintaining good posture. Also, if you want to improve your balance and overall posture, sleeping in a supine position in the Plank mattress will do wonders.

Inspired by the minimalist way of sleeping, the Plank mimics the feeling of sleeping on the floor. This practice claims to have positive effects on the circulatory system, reducing pressure and easing tension on the joints.

Taking a closer look inside the mattress, you will see six layers of pure mattress engineering design. The first layer is an optional cooling panel that will give your mattress an extra firm side. It is made of premium phase change molecule (PCM) fabric which delivers maximum temperature cooling features. Plank mattresses have a second 1” inch layer of quilted, gel memory foam intended to resist body impression. This is opposite the body-contouring feature in most memory foam mattresses. Plus, the gel memory foam adds cooling comfort while you snooze. Because it is flappable, you have the option between a .75” inch quilted top and a 1.5” inches quilted layer. The 75” inch quilted layer is enclosed with continuous stitching, with guaranteed zero loft giving you the ultra-firm experience. While the 1.5” inches quilted layer is sewn with a tack-and-jump stitching. This stitching technique leaves minimal spaces between stitches for a firm feel.

A 2” inches TitanFlexTM makes the third layer of the Plank, adding deep compression support for the spine and lumbar area. Beneath it is a 7” inches high-density foam that serves as the base of the mattress. The high-density material gives the Plank durability and stability in any foundation. You can expect good quality sleep in your Plank mattress. Brooklyn Bedding is so confident with the quality of its products, that the brothers are giving you 120-night risk-free trial. Plus, there is no 30-day break-in period.
