Cocoon by Sealy
was $1079.00

It takes a lot for a product to win a spot on our Best List, let alone for it to win the "Best Overall" category, but the Chill mattress managed to do just that thanks to its comfy, medium-firm construction and cooling outer layer. “It’s extremely comfortable, doesn’t move or bounce when your partner gets out of bed/moves around, and is very light/easy to move,” said Marisa, our sales research and consumer insights associate director. The mattress's combination of Perfect Fit memory foam and fabric-encased coils also provides back and hip support and relieves pressure points. Sweet dreams await.

Stearns & Foster
was $2399.00

If you prefer a firm mattress, you know what a challenge it can be to find one that's also supportive. But after trying the Stearns & Foster Estate mattress, which comes in both firm and soft versions, senior commerce editor Alicia knew she'd found the bed of her dreams. "The Stearns & Foster Estate mattress’s memory foam conforms to my shape," she wrote. "My body feels supported, but this firm mattress isn’t so hard that I feel uncomfortable, like with my previous mattress. It also isolates movement. I can still tell when my boyfriend rolls over, but if he shifts his sleeping position, the mattress doesn’t even move." You'll also find its memory foam to stay cool throughout the night, preventing discomfort and overheating.

Innerspring mattresses might be an old-school style, but when constructed with modern materials, they can provide excellent support and durability. Mark, our director of commerce, has dealt with back pain from years of sleeping on sofa beds, cheap mattresses, and sleeper sofas, but after a year of living with this Saatva mattress, he’s found that it keeps him comfortable and well-rested every time. While the top layer is firm, it’s also plush, cushy, and breathable — in fact, Mark says, it’s “kept me comfortable throughout the brutally hot summer months, whether I’m sleeping on my side, back, or stomach.” Mark adds that this mattress definitely feels like a major upgrade from his former favorite for back pain.

TEMPUR-Pedic is one of the most sought-after mattress brands around. Our favorite pick? The perfectly balanced TEMPUR-Cloud Mattress with Hybrid Technology. "What I found to be the most surprising about the TEMPUR-Cloud Hybrid is that it’s far more supportive than it seems at first touch," said commerce editor Britt. "Its innovation lies in its ability to conform to your sleeping shape, no matter which way you turn. So, if you’re like me and prone to changing positions through the night, you won’t wake up due to a lack of comfort. Thanks to its middle TEMPUR Support layer, the mattress stays delightfully firm underneath you and changes those pressure points depending on your position. As a result, my sleep went undisturbed because I wasn’t fighting to find the cozy spot on the bed because the cozy spot naturally found me. When I woke up, I felt incredibly rested."

"Besides the unparalleled cooling power, my favorite aspect of the Elite Hybrid is that it’s the perfect compromise for my girlfriend and I — but it doesn’t feel like a compromise," he wrote. "I feel like I got the better end of the deal with a firm mattress, while my girlfriend thinks she got the better end of the deal with a soft mattress." In the end, it's sweet dreams all around.

Our backs are already thanking us.”

was $2265.00

After this cooling-infused foam mattress went viral on the internet, Commerce SEO editor, Sarah, simply had no choice but to try it out for herself.

After one night on the Aurora, however, she slept soundly, and comfortably, and finally woke up without a bead of sweat on her forehead. In addition to its heat-repelling properties, the mattress also conforms to the body to provide excellent pressure point relief from head to toe. No matter what kind of sleeper you are, you're sure to love it.

Helix Sleep
was $748.80

When it comes to kids' mattresses, our favorite one around is the Helix Kids Mattress. While there's a lot to love about this mattress, its biggest plus is the flippable design — firm on one side for younger kids who need more support, and softer on the other side for older kids who want more comfort, meaning your kiddo can literally grow up with this mattress. It also has a ton of certifications that ensure it’s made with high-quality, naturally hypoallergenic materials. The 100-night sleep trial and 10-year warranty only sweeten the deal.

If you're seeking cloud-like comfort atop an eco-friendly, recyclable, and breathable mattress, look no further than Parachute's Eco Mattress. Crafted with organic cotton, pure wool, and tempered steel, it offers both luxurious comfort and sustainability. What sets it apart from other mattresses on this list is that it features coils instead of foam. Contributor Marshall Bright praised its traditional mattress feel, saying, "It’s the feel of a traditional mattress I grew up with, with zero drawbacks. Or another way of looking at it: the contouring benefits of foam, without hot sleeping or sacrificing support," in their review.

was $1199.00

Contributing writer Stella recognizes the importance of getting eight hours of sleep each night, as we all should. However, unlike today's trends favoring cloud-like comfort, she prefers a firmer mattress. Therefore, she opted for The Lyric Hybrid mattress, a firmer and more supportive version of the brand's original Lyric mattress. "With individually encapsulated coils resting atop a layer of protective, premium base foam, the mattress provides excellent support from the bottom up," Stella noted in her review.
