Restless nights are bad enough on their own, but a mattress that leaves you feeling stuck as you toss and turn or change sleeping positions can make a restless night almost unbearable.

With a 9/10 score for cooling, this Brooklyn Bedding product is also a good match for hot sleepers. Its two layers of gel memory foam and a pocketed coil layer promote breathability. We give it a 9.5/10 durability score, which contrasts favorably with a pretty standard 10-year warranty.

The mattress should cater to both of their sleeping positions, it should do a good job of isolating motion, and it should be responsive enough for them to move around on with ease. The WinkBeds GravityLux excels in all of these fields, not to mention it’s simply a very comfortable mattress.

The Titan Plus is a firm mattress specifically designed for plus-size sleepers. Its hybrid design provides the support that heavy people need to sleep comfortably, particularly those who prefer sleeping on their back or stomach. 

Several factors contribute to us calling the Titan Plus one of our favorite mattresses for plus-size sleepers. First and foremost, it can support up to 1,000 pounds, which is especially important if you sleep with a partner. Next, it scored a 9/10 on our durability test, which means it does a good job of maintaining its structural integrity under large amounts of weight. It also performed well on our cooling test (8.5/10), so you aren’t as likely to easily overheat on the Titan Plus.

When we talk about luxury, we’re often talking about hybrid mattresses. But, it’s also important to talk about the materials that go into that hybrid construction. The Nolah Natural uses talalay latex where many other mattresses use memory foam. This distinction is important, as it impacts the way the mattress feels.

The latex layers of the Nolah Natural contribute to its solid scores in both cooling (9/10) and responsiveness (8.5/10). Also, the materials used in the construction of the Nolah Natural are organic, free of harmful chemicals, and hypoallergenic. If you’re after eco-friendly luxury, the Nolah Natural is worth checking out.

A firm mattress can do wonders for certain kinds of people, namely stomach sleepers, plus-size sleepers, and sleepers with lower back pain. If you’re after the luxury sleep experience in the form of a firm mattress, you should definitely consider Brooklyn Bedding’s Plank Firm. 

The Plank is a flippable mattress—one side is firm, one side is extra-firm. Depending on your sleeping position, body type, and preferences, you can select that side that best accommodates you. Some people hear “firm” and think that this mattress might lack comfort, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. We gave the Plank a 9/10 for pressure relief and an 8.75/10 for spine alignment, so you can count on this mattress to give you that top-of-the-line feel while helping to keep your body ache and pain free.

Guide to Finding the Best Luxury Mattress

Luxury mattresses aren’t just for the wealthy anymore. The emergence of direct-to-consumer brands and online shopping have helped create opportunities for many consumers who previously thought that high-quality bedding was out of their reach. In fact, more than half of the featured mattresses on this page list a regular price below $2,500 for a queen size.

While cost is still a factor, finding the right luxury mattress could be easier than you think. In this guide, we’ll explore some topics to help you make an informed decision.

Are Luxury Mattresses Worth It?

Luxury mattresses cost more than standard models, and with good reason. You’re paying more, but you’re also getting more for your money. Here are some of the areas where high-end mattresses typically outperform budget mattresses:

  • Comfort. A plush pillow-top or an extra layer of transition foam can make a huge difference in the quality of your sleep.
  • Special features. The typical luxury bed could offer anything from specially engineered cooling memory foam to dual-side adjustable firmness controls.
  • Durability. A combination of premium materials and high-quality workmanship should give your luxury mattress a longer lifespan. While the upfront cost is greater, it could be a decade or more before you need to replace it.
  • White glove delivery. This deluxe service means that the person who delivers your mattress will also set up in your bedroom and remove your old mattress. It’s a specialty service that’s typically included in the price.
  • Environmental stewardship. Luxury mattress companies frequently use organic materials in their products and support environmental causes, such as planting trees for every mattress they sell.

Types of Luxury Mattresses

Most luxury mattresses fall into the same category as regular mattresses:

  • Memory foam—Known for the body-contouring “hug” feel
  • Innerspring—The “traditional” springy feel and all-around support
  • Latex—Bouncy and durable, with natural cooling properties
  • Hybrid—Different materials layered into one mattress

In most cases, a luxury mattress is very similar to a regular bed but made with higher-grade materials to address specific needs or concerns.

Regular mattress Luxury mattress The difference:
Traditional memory foam Gel-infused memory foam Improved cooling
Basic innersprings Individually wrapped pocket coils Better motion isolation, less squeaking
Synthetic latex Natural or organic latex Hypoallergenic, less chemical odor

Luxury hybrids bring different combinations of these materials together into layered beds, with each layer targeting a specific need such as pressure relief or responsiveness.

Other luxury mattresses involve complex technology, such as the ventilation chambers that control firmness in an airbed or biometric monitoring systems in a smartbed.

Who Should Get a Luxury Mattress?

It might seem that the obvious answer is, “Anybody who can afford one.” In reality, factors besides wealth or consumerism could drive the decision to buy a high-end mattress.

For vacation rental hosts, a luxury mattress could be a great selling point for their Airbnb or VRBO property. Athletes and fitness trainers might also see a luxury bed as an investment if it helps them maintain peak conditioning.

The term “luxury mattress” could even be something of a misnomer in certain cases. For instance, someone with severe back pain might need an adjustable smartbed not as a status symbol but simply as a way to sleep through the night. Because the features and technology affect the price, a therapeutic mattress could be mislabeled as a luxury product.

On the other hand, sometimes the decision is straightforward. You might well want a luxury mattress simply to enjoy better sleep, a motivation that can apply to anyone.

Considerations When Shopping for a Luxury Mattress

So you’ve decided that a luxury mattress is right for you, but when it’s time to change your mattress, how do you find the right replacement? There are a few things to consider when looking for a good, high-quality mattress.

Sleep Position

What position do you sleep in? The answer to this question instantly points you in the right direction for your mattress type.

  • Side sleepers. Side sleepers are looking for a bed with pressure relief, primarily for their hips and shoulders. This sleep type should be looking for a latex or a gel memory foam mattress. These mattresses evenly distribute your weight and take pressure away from sensitive areas.
  • Back sleepers. People who sleep on their backs need a mattress that evenly contours to their body but doesn’t disrupt the spine’s natural curve. For this reason, latex, foam, and hybrid luxury mattresses win out over the rest.
  • Stomach sleepers. Stomach sleepers need a mattress that is firm enough so they can lie flat, but with a soft top layer to ease pressure off of the hips. Multi-layered memory foam and hybrid models work the best for this position.
  • Combination sleepers. Combo sleepers need a super responsive mattress that is going to adapt to all of the tossing, turning, and position shifting. Hybrid mattresses are key for these sleepers. They have the adaptability for the changes.

Support

A luxury mattress should provide exceptional support that keeps your head and neck aligned. It should also keep pressure to a minimum on your hips and shoulders.

Firmness

With many regular mattresses, the firmness level is static. Many luxury air beds offer adjustable firmness, with up to 50 levels to choose from.

Cooling

If heat is what’s keeping you from a great night’s sleep, look for a luxury mattress that specifically addresses cooling. Materials such as naturally breathable latex and high-quality memory foam with cooling gel do a good job of letting body heat escape from the mattress, while innerspring hybrids benefit from airflow-friendly coils.

Size

Luxury mattresses generally come in standard bed sizes, though you can customize this with some luxury brands. Here are the sizes you should expect:

  • Twin: 38″ x 75″
  • Twin XL: 38″ x 80″
  • Full: 53″ x 75″
  • Queen: 60″ x 80″
  • King: 76″ x 80″
  • California king: 72″ x 84″

Sleep Partner

A good luxury mattress for couples is responsive, has good edge support, and (most importantly) offers motion isolation. Memory foam is more effective at limiting motion transfer than innerspring.

Aches and Pains

If you or your sleep partner suffers from nighttime aches and pains due to surgery, over-exertion, age, or an injury, buy a mattress that scores well for pressure relief and responsiveness. When mattress shopping, look for a luxury mattress that specifically mentions pain or pressure relief.

Price

When establishing your budget for a luxury mattress, keep in mind the following factors:

  • Cost of the mattress
  • Cost of a foundation
  • New bedding
  • Shipping or delivery costs

Even if your budget is significant, make sure you’re getting the best mattress deals available.

Luxury mattresses are more durable and offer more pressure relief than your average mattress. The various mattress types you’ll typically find are latex, hybrid, air bed, and memory foam.

Each of these are specially made to keep you cool, last for years, and improve your sleep. Now you have the knowledge you need to make an informed decision about whether to upgrade to one of the best luxury mattresses available.

Luxury Mattress FAQ

The answer to this question is highly dependent on who is asking and their definition of luxury. If the ability to customize your sleep experience is luxurious to you, the Saatva Solaire may be the best choice. If you’re a restless sleeper or a combination sleeper, the Brooklyn Sedona Elite may be the mattress you consider bringing home.

We recommend identifying “must-have” aspects for your new mattress. From there, your search for a luxury mattress that suits your needs will be easier.

It’s no surprise that many celebrities spend more than the general public for a mattress (in some cases, as much as $400,000). Here’s a short list of ultra-luxury mattresses and the famous people believed to sleep on them:

  • Hästens—Drake, Beyonce, Tom Cruise
  • Shifman—Barack Obama
  • Kluft—Demi Moore
  • Hypnos—Oprah Winfrey, Queen Elizabeth II

On the other hand, some celebrities have been associated with more everyday mattress brands, including Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson (Molecule) and Jack Osbourne, son of Ozzy (Tempur-pedic).

If you want to extend the lifespan of a luxury mattress, it’s important to take good care of it. Using a mattress protector can help protect your mattress from wear and tear, dust, and spills. We also recommend cleaning your mattress to keep it stain-free and smelling fresh.

Finding the right mattress can improve not only your nights but also your days.
