What We Do

We built Mattress Clarity so that you could have all of your sleep questions answered. That means you’ll find:

  • Mattress reviews
  • Other sleep reviews on products such as sheets, comforters, pillows and adjustable beds
  • Clear and concise mattress and bedding comparisons
  • Lists of our top picks of Best Mattresses and more
  • Current and informative sleep news

Our Process

Based on our experience, we don’t believe there is a universal best mattress. There are so many factors to consider. Things like your budget, your weight and body type, any pain or discomfort you’re currently feeling and your other personal preferences all add up to make a specific set of requirements just for you.

To put together our mattress reviews, we spend quality time actually sleeping on these mattresses, pillows and other bedding, testing them for various important qualities — all designed to help you find the perfect night’s sleep.
