Quick Overview

Tuft & Needle offers two mattresses.  The T&N Mattress is a 10 inch, two layer polyfoam mattress and the Mint Mattress is a 12 inch, three layer polyfoam mattress.

Our review of the Tuft & Needle mattresses found both of the mattresses to be quite comfortable for their respective price points.  While the sleeper doesn’t sink into the bed as much as you would with memory foam, it is still able to hug the body while giving the necessary support to keep the spine aligned.  The Mint Mattress does give you the extra two inches and more robust edge support and the added graphite tends to sleep a bit cooler.  There is a reason these mattresses have such a positive rating around the web, they are both quality at a fair price.

Read on for our full review of the Tuft & Needle Mattresses, including sleeper and performance ratings, who we recommend this bed to, and everything else you need to know about the mattress.

Sleep Rating

Durability
Good

Tuft & Needle mattresses are designed to perform for six to seven years, which is on par with similar models. The mattresses have been sold for less than five years, and longevity past the five-year mark has not been evaluated, but owners report minimal sagging and deterioration.

Motion Isolation
Very Good

Although Tuft & Needle mattresses contain no memory foam, customer reports indicate that the sleep surface absorbs and reduces motion transfer to a significant extent.

Conforming
Very Good

Tuft & Needle owners — particularly those with below-average weights — report close conforming and above-average pain and pressure relief compared to owners of other all-polyfoam mattress models.

Sex
Fair

Tuft & Needle mattresses are somewhat bouncy, but they may not be responsive enough for some couples.

Temperature Neutrality
Good

A small number of Tuft & Needle owners claim their mattress sleeps excessively hot, but most say temperature neutrality is not a significant issue.

Off-gassing
Good

Some off-gassing is to be expected with the Tuft & Needle mattress, but these odors will dissipate rather quickly.

Edge Support
Fair

Edge support is one of the main complaints associated with Tuft & Needle, and many owners report sinkage where people sit at the edges.

Noise
Excellent

Tuft & Needle mattresses are virtually silent when bearing weight.

As you can see, the Tuft & Needle is a great choice for lighter people who sleep on their side, and performs well for those who sleep on their back. We are weary of recommending the T&N mattress to heavier sleepers, since likely will lack the necessary support, but the Mint Mattress should be a nice alternative.

Our testing process found the Tuft & Needle should also be great for you if…

  • You’re looking for an quality mattress at one of the lowest price points in the space
  • Want to purchase from an established brand as Tuft & Needle has merged with Serta/Simmons
  • You aren’t a fan of traditional innerspring mattresses
  • You enjoy the feel of the comfort layer conforming around your body
