The 11 Best Mattresses for Couples (with Hot Sleepers & Side Sleepers in Mind)
You know that old saying, “Happy wife, happy life?” I have one for myself: It’s “good night’s rest, I’ll be feeling my best.” It originated with my mom, who would say this to me whenever I was feeling stressed out or moody when I was growing up. I hated hearing it back then, but live by that mantra now. And, thankfully, my boyfriend does, too. When we moved in together two years ago, we were pretty relaxed about deciding which couch to get for our apartment, what coffee table to snag for the small space, and figuring out the rugs that could help make our place feel like home. The one thing we were absolutely not relaxed about was picking the best mattress for a couple — which is funny, because feeling relaxed is the whole point of a new mattress.
Finding the best mattress for couples is hard work — especially if that couple has different preferences. One person might be a side sleeper, the other might be a hot sleeper. One person might prefer sleeping on a rock (my boyfriend), and the other (me) could enjoy feeling like they’re floating on a cloud. I digress. Luckily, brands are pretty much putting in as much research and innovation into mattresses as Swifties are to finding Easter eggs in her music videos. For those unfamiliar, just know that it’s a lot.
Even if you and your partner have completely different tastes in mattresses, there are still some out there that you both will agree on. Trust me — I’m part of a success story. Below, we’ve rounded up 11 of the best mattresses for couples that will lead to the best night’s rest possible. And, in case you were wondering, the hero mattress that helps keep my boyfriend and me happy is of course included. Read more below.
