Since starting this site, I have been able to conduct dozens of mattress reviews from online mattress start-ups to big name retail brands. Below are mattresses that I have personally tested. This can be an overwhelming list. There are a few brands that really stand out including Nest, Winkbed, Luxi and Brentwood Home. Recently, I have developed some proprietary tests and tools to give you even more information about how these mattresses work. Make sure to check out my Best Mattress 2017 list to see which mattress brands are making some noise in the industry.

Just about all of these mattresses are compatible with an adjustable bed. Check out my Adjustable Bed reviews here.

MEMORY FOAM MATTRESSES

This is the largest category of mattresses. Many of the new startups created a mattress in a box made of layers of glued foam with the advent of roll packing machines that could compress the foam into boxes that can be shipped via UPS, FedEx or a similar carrier.

INNER SPRING MATTRESSES

These mattresses have inner springs in typically in the form of pocket coils. Some are delivered by a freight carrier since they are not roll packed but you can purchase them online. A growing trend is hybrid mattresses that include both memory foam and coils so that you get contouring and a little bit of bounce too.

MICROCOIL & FOAM MATTRESSES

Microcoils help with contouring and support in a very subtle way. They are becoming more common in foam mattresses as they help the mattress breath and make it a little easier to move around in. Below are mattresses that are primarily foam but have microcoil technology.
