Saatva

Best for Back Pain

  • Shipping: Free, ships in a box
  • Warranty and returns: lifetime warranty; 365 night sleep trial, with white glove delivery
  • Customer rating: 4.9/5
  • Type: innerspring 

Though Saatva is technically a hybrid mattress, it boasts a firmer innerspring feel that’s great for spinal alignment and alleviating back pain. Pocketed steel coils and a plush Euro-top work together to deliver a balance of comfort and support. You can choose from three different firmnesses: Soft, Luxury Firm, and Firm. You can select which firmness works best based on your individual needs and preferences.

Saatva offers free white glove delivery, meaning they will not only deliver but set up your mattress. They’ll even go so far as to remove your old mattress. 

WHAT SAATVA CUSTOMERS SAY:

“I have enjoyed sleeping on this mattress since it was delivered, I wake up more refreshed than before. It helps with my back and shoulder pain. Very pleased with the product, excellent materials and craftsmanship.”

“This company fully backs its products, is honest and ethical, and does what it can to fix any issues or problems that may occur.”

WinkBed

Best Hybrid
  • Price: $1,799 for queen 
  • Shipping: Free, ships in a box
  • Warranty and returns: lifetime warranty; 120 night sleep trial with free returns
  • Customer rating: 4.5/5
  • Type: hybrid 

The WinkBed is a hybrid mattress, meaning it uses the contouring comfort layer of a memory foam mattress and the firm support of an innerspring. Four different firmnesses are offered, so depending on your sleeping position and body type, you can select the WinkBed that suits you best. The firmness options include Soft, Luxury Firm, Firmer, and Plus (for heavier sleepers).

We love the WinkBed because of its cooling ability and spinal alignment support. During our testing, it received an 8/10 and an 8.5/10 in each category, respectively.

WHAT WINKBED CUSTOMERS SAY:

“Really amazingly outstanding customer service which helped time my shipment so it arrived at the right time. An easy set-up and the most wonderful mattress ever slept on.”

“After many months of research I finally chose the Luxury Firm WinkBed and could not be happier with my decision.”

Layla

Best Foam
  • Price: $1,099 for queen 
  • Shipping: Free, ships in a box
  • Warranty and returns: lifetime warranty; 120 night sleep trial, with free returns
  • Customer rating: 4.5/5
  • Type: all-foam 

The Layla is customizable in the sense that it’s flippable. This unique feature results in a Soft side (4/ 10 on the firmness scale) and a Firm side (7/10 on the firmness scale). The Soft side should be great for joint pain, and the Firm side should be beneficial for back pain. In the end, you can decide which side aligns with your sleeping habits. It should work well for most sleepers.

The layers of copper-infused memory foam provide a slow-moving feel that’s extremely pressure-relieving. In fact, the Layla earned a 9/10 score for pressure relief during our testing process.

WHAT LAYLA CUSTOMERS SAY:

“I cannot say enough about the construction of this mattress. If you like memory foam, you will love this mattress.”

“Well-made! Customer service is prompt and friendly. So glad I discovered Layla.”

TEMPUR-Adapt

  • Price: $1,795 for queen 
  • Shipping: Free, ships in a box
  • Warranty and returns: lifetime warranty; 365 night sleep trial, with white glove delivery
  • Customer rating: 4.9/5
  • Type: all-foam or hybrid

Side sleepers require a softer, pressure-relieving mattress because they put so much weight on the hips and shoulders. TEMPUR-Pedic offers the TEMPUR-Adapt, a fantastic option for side sleepers. It has unmatched pressure relief and motion cancellation. However, they also sell the TEMPUR-ProAdapt and the TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt as enhanced versions of the original mattress. The ProAdapt is an inch thicker than the original for even more plushness, and the LuxeAdapt adds another extra inch of material. 

Better yet, each of these models comes in a range of firmnesses. After taking into account your needs as a sleeper, you can select your ideal model and firmness. The ProAdapt and Adapt models even come in a Medium Hybrid option, incorporating a mix of coils and foam.

WHAT TEMPUR-PEDIC CUSTOMERS SAY:

“This mattress is fantastic. Just the perfect level of softness with great support.”

“No more tossing and turning all night, and no more waking up stiff and sore. Also no more waking up in the night all hot and sweaty. Would recommend this bed to anyone who is looking for a comfortable night’s sleep.”

See Tempur-Adapt review.

Amerisleep

  • Price: $1,349-2,149 for queen 
  • Shipping: Free, ships in a box
  • Warranty and returns: 20-year warranty; 100 night sleep trial, with white glove delivery
  • Customer rating: 4.5/5
  • Type: all-foam 

Amerisleep offers five models varying in firmness and construction, so they can find which all-foam mattress they prefer. You can choose between the AS1 (8.5-9/10 firmness), AS2 (7/10 firmness), AS3 (6/10 firmness), AS4 (4/10 firmness), and AS5 (3/10 firmness). These quality memory foam mattresses are also offered in hybrid versions, as well as an all-natural bed called the Organica.

The Amerisleep beds are made in the USA and utilize high-quality, plant-based foams. That way, you can feel good about what you’re resting on at night. 

WHAT AMERISLEEP CUSTOMERS SAY:

“The A5 has a great warranty, does not develop body impressions in the surface and is one of the most comfortable mattresses I have ever owned.”

“We purchased our A5 5 years ago and it is still just like the day we bought it. It has exceeded our expectations and we get great sleep. We also love how it minimizes the motion when one sleeper tosses and turns.”

While customizing a mattress to your liking might seem like more work, think about how much time you’ll be spending in said mattress. Sleep is personal, so your mattress should be too.
