Mattress Reviews - Top Choices Revealed, Avoid Scams

Mattress Reviews and Buying Guide 2017

I’ve been reviewing mattresses online for a few years now and have personally slept on over 70 mattresses.  However for ever mattress I review, it seems like 5 new brands emerge, making everything more confusing.


Everyone has their own needs and preferences (and I of course have my own), but I try to be objective as I review each mattress personally, highlighting what I like and don’t like.  I also break down my reviews into categories (see the table of contents for my top picks by category).

Note: I receive free products to review and participate in affiliate programs, where I am compensated for items purchased through links from our site (at no cost to the buyer). See our disclosure page for our list of comped products and affiliate programs.

Below is a list of some of my favorite mattresses, as well as some of my favorite mattresses by certain categories.  If you have a question about a brand not listed here, please reach out and I will add it to the list!

Memory Foam Mattresses

Many people start by looking at memory foam because they are familiar with Tempur-pedic.  I think they make some great mattresses, but there are lots of other companies that offer great memory foam mattresses at a much better value.  See my memory foam mattress reviews for my top picks.

Hybrid Mattresses

Hybrid in the mattress industry basically means not just one material – this could mean latex and memory foam, or even spring and foam in one mattress.  When done right, these mattresses can offer the best of different materials.

Latex Mattresses

Latex is less known than memory foam, but in my opinion has an opportunity to be the best sleeping surface.  In addition, it can actually be all natural (though many companies choose to use synthetic latex).  See my latex mattress reviews page for my top picks in this category.

My Mattress Rating Experience

Mattress Reviews and Ratings

I test out every mattress personally for at least one week so that I can have a useful personal experience to share.  Note that my opinion isn’t the ultimate authority – everyone has their own preference, and I’ll do my best to communicate my experience in an unbiased way.  Take my reviews with a grain of salt, because something I might hate might be exactly what you’re looking for!

Review Methodology

Generally I look for how each mattress satisfies the following criteria:

  • Quality construction and materials (especially for newer mattress brands that haven’t been around along enough to evaluate over a long time period)
  • Comfort
  • Support and spinal alignment
  • Sleeping hot (especially for memory foam and proprietary foam mattresses)
  • Return policy/Warranty
  • Eco-friendliness
  • Customer support and company reputation
  • Value/Price

I would like all of the content on Mattress Clarity to be up for discussion, so let me know if you have any questions about specific brands, my review process, or purchasing a mattress in general.
