Quality sleep is one of the most important things we, as humans, can do to promote longer, healthier living. It’s better than any supplement, better than any diet or exercise. The problem…very few of us get a good night’s sleep…and we don’t pay attention to the quality of mattress (which is where it all starts). The problem is, when you’re looking for the best mattress, there are hundreds of mattress options out there but only a handful that stand leaps and bounds above the rest. Fortunately, we’ve found them and give them to you below:
Tuft & Needle
Tuft & Needle is owned by Simmons which is one one of the largest manufacturers of mattresses in the country. So it’s backed by a big name brand- not just some online company that’s dropshipping from China. Aside from that, the mattress is just REALLY soft and comfortable…A LOT of people love this bed. It’s the most popular bed on Amazon and once you get it you’ll see why… it checks all the boxes that you’re looking for when you’re shopping for a budget to your product. It’s comfortable but not too soft (which is a common complaint of other “premium” brands). It’s nice enough. It’s from a big name brand. It’s accommodating for all different types of sleeping positions, stomach back side combination. It accomodates as many people as possible and comes with free shipping, a 100 night test window and free returns even if you buy it on Amazon and then a 10 year warranty.
If you had to pick 1 mattress to buy today for the next 10 years, this is probably it.
Now Tuft and needle is a foam mattress. But if you want a hybrid mattress that incorporates coils, the lucid gel memory foam hybrid is awesome. When we got the mattress, we didn’t really have high hopes for it and it turns out to be a really, really nice bed. It has pocketed coils for extra support and as memory foam and the comfort layers, but it doesn’t have that “sinking” feeling like a lot of other memory foam beds. It’s a much more “stable” memory foam which is great.
The mattress ranks about a medium on the soft-to-firmness scale but the reason it made our list is how comfortable it is given that it has coils. So it’s potentially a better option for heavier folks that want something more robust than a pure foam bed.
Nest Flip Hybrid
Now next up, another really durable mattress that’s also a coil bed is the Nest Flip Hybrid. Also from a really reputable brand and sold exclusively on Amazon. What’s most amazing about this bed is the price point. As of writing this is under $1000 which is absurd for a bed that’s (i) Made in America (ii) This High Quality and (iii) from a Name Brand. It also has two different firmness levels so it’s very versatile out of the box. You can flip the entire matress and get a firmer side for back and stomach sleepers.
If you’re more on a strict budget then it’s impossible to beat Amazon Basics
The whole Amazon basics brand is built around the idea of we offer decent products at extremely low prices and that’s what their mattresses, their mattresses available in three different height profiles. They have an eight inch, a 10 inch and a 12 inch. The eight inch is great for like car camping or camping or guest rooms or kids or teens. The 10 inches is the middle option, so it’s, it’s a bed that you can actually sleep on very comfortably. This 12 inch is, if you want to keep it for a little bit longer, but let’s say you’re trying to save every single dollar you can to queen size then you can get an Eight inch bed that’s around 200 bucks. Granted it only comes with a one year warranty, but for some people out there that just need a comfortable mattress that’s good quality as cheaply as possible…this is unbeatable. I actually know someone who has the 10-inch version and they love it (and are not a college student sharing a room with 4 other people).
So basically, that’s our list…If you want Amazon basics, you’re definitely gonna get it at a good price point. There are plenty of other beds that are available on Amazon, but depending on what you’re looking for, this represents the best 4 options. You’ve got a soft foam bed that’s extremely popular and Thousands and thousands and thousands of five star reviews. You’ve got the hybrid option which is really great. You’ve got the flippable option that is newer but, I think, going to become very popular shortly.., and then you got an ultra budget pick. Let me know what you think. Uh, write this in the comments and you can check out everything in the description.
