The Mint Mattress from Tuft & Needle is an all-polyfoam model. The mattress is constructed with top layers of graphite- and gel-infused foam that conforms to the sleeper’s body, but also feels more responsive than memory foam. Most experience a combined feeling of sleeping “on” and sleeping “in” their mattress.
The Mint Mattress also features a thick support core made of high-density foam. The bed has a medium-firm feel, making it best suited to sleepers who weigh 230 pounds or less. Side sleepers receive ample cushioning for their shoulders and hips, resulting in even spinal alignment and less pressure, while the layers provide a good balance of body-conforming and even support for back and stomach sleepers. The mattress also has a lower-density comfort layer for more breathability and temperature neutrality on the surface.
Unlike most competing mattresses with non-removable covers, the top half of the Mint’s cover can be zipped off and washed in any household machine. An antimicrobial protectant embedded in the fabric is also intended to safeguard the mattress from harmful bacteria. Tuft & Needle generally offers low prices for their beds, and the Mint Mattress is no exception – it costs much less than the average all-foam model. The company also provides free shipping within the contiguous U.S.
The Bottom Line.
The Mint Mattress from Tuft & Needle delivers the exceptional motion isolation and pressure relief of an all-foam bed without sleeping warm or sagging too much.
