A Few Tips

  • Never assume a specific mattress brand or model will be your best option based on marketing or advertising materials. We encourage customers to research mattress components, read product specifications, and test out different models in order to find their most suitable option.
  • Our ratings are based on the consensus of customers, owners, and our testing process. Just because a mattress has received positive feedback and favorable reviews doesn’t mean it will be the best mattress for you. Use our ratings to guide your search, but pay attention to your own preferences before making a final decision.
  • The average mattress requires a 30-night ‘break-in period’ before it will reach its full comfort and support potential. Most mattress brands offer sleep trials that allow customers to test out the bed for a certain period (typically 90 nights or longer) and return it before the trial expires if they are not satisfied. Sleep trials can be very helpful for customers who have not settled on a specific model — but remember they vary in terms of length and return costs.
  • We regularly update pricing information, so be sure to check back regularly if you want to find more options in your price range.
