Best Innerspring Mattress

Saatva Innerspring Mattress

Saatva has roots all across the US, with factory operations in 12 states and fulfillment centers in even more. We think their innerspring mattresses are second to none, and also a phenomenal value at their current price. Saatva offers multiple firmness levels to appeal to a variety of different sleepers. The cover is made of 100% organic cotton, which is very breathable and soft. They do the small things too to help your sleeping experience, like a small extra strip of memory foam around the lumbar region to help with additional pressure relief. Coils inside the mattress are individually wrapped, which helps isolate motion on the bed so you don’t disturb your partner. The medium firmness of their base model is comfortable for a wide variety of sleepers, whether you like to sleep on your back or side. The Saatva also has incredible edge support, which makes sense given its innerspring construction. If you like a coil-based mattress with some good spring and support, the Saatva is a great option.

Best Mattress for Back Sleepers

Bear Mattress

The Bear Mattress is specifically designed for people with an active lifestyle. It’s made with some unique materials that help with blood flow and muscle recovery, like the use of Celliant in its cover. Celliant is often found in sporting apparel and helps with muscle recovery by turning body heat into infrared light, which improves blood flow helping with oxygen circulation and keeping you cool throughout the night. If you sleep hot, this mattress is a great option to help reduce those fitful nights of tossing and turning. Just below the cover is a 1.5″ thick graphite infused memory foam layer, which is a material that isn’t used very often in other mattress companies, but helps with pressure relief and temperature control. The Bear Mattress does a good job of distributing weight for a variety of sleeper types, but in particular, this bed works very well for back sleepers who need a bit firmer mattress with good support. If you’re very active and want a mattress that helps you recover while you sleep, this is the mattress for you. Check out our full Bear mattress investigation for more.

  • None

Best Mattress for Side Sleepers

Nolah Original Mattress

The Nolah Original 10″ mattress is a great mattress for side sleepers because of how soft, yet supportive it is. Side sleepers need a softer mattress that helps you relieve pressure in your shoulders and hips and the Nolah mattress does just that. That support and pressure relief also helps with spinal alignment, so if you’re a side sleeper with back pain, Nolah should be a great option to help relieve that back pain. It is an all foam bed, which have a reputation for sleeping hot, but we found the Nolah Original to sleep pretty cool thanks to its AirFoam layer and cooling Tencel cover. This mattress comes at a pretty affordable price point too and Nolah is almost always running some type of sale.

Check Price

Current Deal: Nolah is currently offering up to $700 off mattresses and 2 free pillows. Check their site for all the latest information.

Things we like:

  • Great soft mattress for side sleepers
  • Affordable price
  • 120 night sleep trial
  • Lifetime warranty

Things we don’t like:

  • Not a great fit for heavy sleepers

Best Mattress for Combination Sleepers

Brooklyn Bedding Signature Hybrid Mattress

Brooklyn Bedding is a pretty unique mattress company that is truly all about being made in the USA – they own their own factory, which allows them to produce super high quality mattresses at lower prices than other bed in a box brands. We particularly like their Brooklyn Signature Hybrid Mattress, which we found to be a great option for combination sleepers (folks who switch from their back, to side, to stomach throughout the night). Like a couple of our other top picks, the Brooklyn Signature is a hybrid mattress, which means it has both foam and innerspring coils that make up the support system. We found it to be medium firm and really good pressure relief. If you sleep on your back or stomach a lot, this bed also offers pretty good support so your hips aren’t sinking into the mattress too far (which can get your spine out of alignment). Overall, Brooklyn Bedding is a great value pick that is super durable and and a good fit for a wide variety of sleeping positions.

Current Deal: Brooklyn Bedding is currently offering 25% off with the code MEMORIAL25.

Things we like:

  • Great pressure relief
  • Good edge support
  • Durable
  • Great price point

Things we don’t like:

  • More of a watch out – not a great fit for strict side sleepers

Best Memory Foam Mattress

Tuft & Needle

Tuft & Needle is another up and coming mattress company founded in the last few years (2012). They are based in Phoenix, Arizona. They source their mattress fabrics from mills in the Carolinas, assemble mattresses in California, and also pour all their foam right here in the USA. The Tuft & Needle mattress was the best we found for memory foam mattresses that are on the firmer side. The cover is made with a Polyester/Tactel blend, which is super stretchy and thin, helping air flow freely through the mattress and keep you cool at night. The construction of this bed is a little different than the similar Casper memory foam mattress – it has no transition foam layer between the top comfort level and base layer, which results in a firmer feel. The Tuft & Needle mattress performs really well in many motion transfer tests, which means there isn’t a ton of disturbance across the mattress when your partner gets up in the middle of the night. Edge support is good with this mattress, so you can comfortably sleep at the end of the mattress without worrying about falling off. Overall, this is a great mattress for folks that like memory foam, but want a firmer surface with more support. Read more in our full Tuft & Needle breakdown.

Things we like:

  • 100 night trial period
  • 10 year product warranty
  • Free shipping
  • Sleeps cool
  • Lower price than similar competitors

Things we don’t like:

  • Doesn’t come with a box spring

Best Mattress for Hot Sleepers

Molecule 1 Mattress

We were really impressed by the comfort level and breathability of the Molecule 1 mattress – it is incredible for hot sleepers. Starting on top, the mattress cover gets rid of heat and moisture very well that helps regulate your body temperature throughout the night. Below the cover are 3 layers: RestoreFLO (memory foam for pressure relief), RecoveryFLO (dynamic support layer), and ContourFLO (the foundation that helps with spine alignment), all of which are very breathable, allowing heat to exit the mattress and keep you cool. In terms of firmness, the Molecule 1 is right in the middle, consistently rated a 5 out of 10, which is slightly softer than the industry average of around 6 out of 10. If you’re a side sleeper, this softer mattress will be a good option for you.

We also looked at motion transfer, which helps determine whether or not you’re going to feel your partner rumbling around on the other side of the bed. The Molecule 1 mattress was slightly above average, so you will feel some of that movement on the other side of the bed. Overall, we really liked this mattress for it’s cooling properties and it was super comfortable. Read more in our Molecule mattress sourcing breakdown.

Things we like:

  • Incredibly breathable
  • Good for side sleepers
  • 100 nights risk free
  • Limited lifetime warranty

Things we don’t like:

  • Not great for stomach sleepers

Most Supportive Memory Foam Mattress

Amerisleep AS3

Amerisleep makes and sells five different mattresses designed to fit different types of sleepers. Do you sleep mostly on your back or stomach? You’ll love the firmness of the Amerisleep AS1 or the Amerisleep AS2. Are you predominantly a side sleeper? Consider the soft and contouring AS4 or the bouncy AS5. However, for our money, the Amerisleep AS3, their medium mattress, is their best mattress.

Like all of their mattresses, the Amerisleep AS3 starts with a Celliant® cover. Celliant® is an FDA-determined textile technology that helps increase local blood flow, leading to you falling asleep faster and staying asleep longer. After the advanced cover, Amerisleep puts its three inches of its pressure-relieving plant-based memory foam. More responsive and cooler than traditional memory foam, this is one of our favorite things about Amerisleep. Beneath that layer, you’ll find zoned back-support that has been clinically shown to reduce pressure points by almost 50%.

Overall, this is a great mattress for all types of sleepers, being a medium on the firmness scale, and perfectly blending comfort and support.

Current Deal: Amerisleep is currently offering $450 off mattresses and free bedding with the code AS450.

  • 100-night trial
  • 20-year warranty

Factors We Considered


First and foremost, your mattress has to be comfortable. We looked for mattresses that are made with soft materials that appeal to a wide variety of sleepers. A good mattress should have a sizeable comfort layer (at least 1.5 inches) at the top of the mattress to separate the sleeper from the base foam layers or inner springs.


We looked for mattresses that had a wide variety of firmness options that appeal to everyone from the super plush to the super firm sleepers. Side sleepers are going to want a soft mattress that they can sink into and relieve pressure in their shoulders and hips. Back sleepers need a medium firm mattress to provide good support. And finally, stomach sleepers need a firm mattress to keep your spine from bowing out of alignment.


Especially for hot sleepers, your mattress has to be very breathable. This concerns everything from the top cover to the base layers of foam underneath. Celliant and cotton are two popular cover materials that breathe very well. Underneath, the proper foam has to be installed to help with proper air flow.


It’s one thing to select a certain firmness level, but proper support entails much more. Certain spots on the mattress require more support than others, which helps provide pressure relief at the right spots along your body. The good mattress manufacturers know these spots and add some extra foam support where needed. Edge support is also important for sleepers who need every inch of space on the mattress, and when you’re sitting at the edge of it in the mornings.


Some sleepers like more bounce than others. A lot of mattress manufacturers will call this “responsiveness”, meaning you can easily switch positions in the middle of the night. So, this factor is particularly important for combination sleepers. Most of our choices have a middle of the road bounce level that appeals to most types of sleepers.

Motion Isolation

Motion isolation is super important to make sure that when you get up in the middle of the night, you don’t wake your partner. All of our top choices passed several consumer tests to make sure movement at certain points in the mattress don’t affect others.


As always, we looked for the best mattresses for your money. We eliminated all mattresses where we felt the quality of the product didn’t live up to the price. Typically, mattresses with coils in them are going to be more expensive than all foam mattresses, so keep that in mind while shopping.
