We've reached peak mattress fatigue. Blame the paradox of choice or the fact that most of us are completely exhausted, but choosing the best mattress — and don't get us started on finding the best deals on bedding — is tiring (pun very much intended). Given the overwhelming number of options now available, we decided to try the most popular mattresses from the biggest ZZZ-inducing brands for 30 days to determine which were really the best of the snoozy bunch.
Whether your preference is to sleep organic (like the green Avocado mattresses), use a cooling mattress, or sleep on your side, back, or stomach, this is the most important factor when selecting the right mattress brand: one that keeps your spine aligned while applying supportive pressure evenly (kind of like a hug). Ultimately, the best mattresses allow us to sleep happily and soundly. The rest — like size, price, and material preference — is pretty variable. Each of the R29 testers ahead used their own unique set of parameters to evaluate the individual mattress they tested.
Scroll on for our firsthand reviews of the best mattresses you can buy online — hopefully, it'll help you feel a little less restless when buying the bed of your (sweet) dreams.
