A king size mattress is an ideal choice for larger sleepers, couples and those co-sleeping with children. Additionally, this size provides more firm support.
Before embarking on your shopping endeavor, it’s advisable to identify your specific sleeping preferences – this could include position preference, plushness preference and temperature preferences.
Nectar Mattress has quickly become one of the leading online mattress brands. Renowned for its value pricing and wide array of features that cater to various sleep positions and body types, Nectar also provides a lengthy sleep trial period as well as lifetime warranties on each mattress sold.
This king-size bed boasts multiple layers of memory foam to provide pressure relief and support, including one gel-infused layer designed to cool and provide soft comfort. After that, thick contour and comfort layers exist which support body curves; particularly beneficial for back and stomach sleepers as this layer helps promote spinal alignment as well as improve airflow for an enhanced sleeping surface.
The middle layer consists of high-density base foam which serves as the bed’s foundational support, reduces motion transfer, and enhances durability of the mattress. A no-slip Shift-Resistant Lower Cover adds additional stability for stability; and everything is wrapped in Tencel blend fabric that’s both cool and soft for ultimate comfort.
For extra durability and longevity, the bottom layer features a high-density poly-fiber and polyethylene blend, designed to resist sagging over time. Furthermore, this durable material works to prevent stains and odors while increasing breathability for cooler sleep.
CertiPUR-US certified foams comprise this mattress for safety and performance, while Tencel fabric covers add a cool feeling against your skin. When ready, simply unroll plastic sheeting to let bed expand and air out for several hours prior to use. The mattress ships in a box for convenient assembly.
Nectar offers one of the most generous return policies in the industry, promising free mattress exchange if you are not fully satisfied. They will even pick up and recycle your old mattress for you! Unfortunately due to its one-sided design you cannot flip over your mattress in order to extend its lifespan.
The Birch Natural Mattress is an excellent option for sleepers with allergies and other health concerns, constructed using organic materials that have earned third-party certification for safety and sustainability. Furthermore, its natural materials allow it to perform well in our medicine ball test with quick response times and minimal sinkage; its coil layer also promotes airflow which ensures your mattress will stay cool and comfy all night long.
This mattress’s comfort layer is made from soft organic cotton and wool fibers to absorb body heat and moisture while offering some pressure relief and perforations to increase airflow and cooling. Furthermore, an organic latex foam section underneath this comfort layer should help the sleeper remain more “on top” of their bed rather than “in it.”
On our medicine ball test, the Birch mattress experienced 2.01 inches of sinkage from its surface of the bed, which should not present significant issues for most sleepers. With its medium firm (6) feel and back support feature, this mattress should also accommodate most sleeping positions – back sleepers will particularly appreciate its supportive features while side sleepers may find it comfortable enough to align their spines and alleviate pressure points. Stomach sleepers may require a slightly softer model as its firm construction could prevent hips from sinking too deeply into its top layers causing discomfort.
Overall, the Birch mattress excels for most sleeping positions and features a bouncier feel than many hybrid models. It makes an excellent option for those who dislike memory foam’s deep embrace but prefer something with more traditional qualities; its organic and natural materials also make it more eco-friendly than many hybrid mattresses.
Birch’s 25-year warranty outshines most other mattress companies’ offerings and its free shipping and returns are fantastic customer service features. Additionally, LoadUp handles mattress removal and recycling for its customers as an added convenience feature of working with Birch.
3. Emma CliMax Hybrid
Emma CliMax Hybrid Mattress combines high-density foams and pocketed coils for a sturdy yet resilient sleeping surface. Starting off with its soft yet breathable cover that is easy to maintain and designed to help dissipate heat, making this bed an excellent option for hot sleepers. Furthermore, two layers of its proprietary AIRGOCELL foam provide breathability as well as temperature regulation by absorbing and then dispersing excess heat away.
The next layer is comprised of soft memory foam similar to that found in Emma Original, while above it lies dense HRX Supreme foam that offers strong support while contouring to relieve pressure points. After this comes a zoned transition layer for additional support for larger sleepers.
This layer features five zones designed to provide additional support for heavier people. Coils in this layer are rated to support up to 400 pounds and can be adjusted using firmness settings on the mattress. Lastly, there’s a high-density poly foam top layer which prevents sinkage and keeps sleepers elevated on top of their mattress.
Lightweight side sleepers who require a cushy bed to help relieve pressure on their hips and shoulders may find the Emma CliMax too stiff, as its medium-firm feel. Furthermore, back sleepers weighing under 230 pounds won’t compress its top layers enough to activate ergonomic zoned support that helps alleviate pressure points.
The Emma CliMax mattress is an excellent option for combo sleepers as it can isolate low to medium intensity movements while offering enough bounce to keep them repositioned. Unfortunately, though, it struggles with more intense movements, and its motion-transfer capabilities don’t compare favorably to some hybrid options.
This hybrid mattress’s coiled layers are shorter than most other models, restricting air flow and trapping heat inside its layers above and beneath them. Memory foam and polyfoam layers were intended to dissipate heat; however, their performance wasn’t particularly notable and this mattress didn’t come equipped with cooling gel as most other competing options do.
4. Titan Plus
The Titan Plus mattress is a hybrid mattress constructed with memory foam and pocketed coils, featuring medium firmness levels. This combination makes for excellent motion isolation and edge support, as well as enhanced edge support for couples. Plus, its comfort layers utilize gel memory foam and breathable pocketed coils for cooling performance.
This mattress is an excellent option for heavier individuals as its durable construction allows it to resist sagging while offering proper spinal alignment for larger bodies. Furthermore, Brooklyn added ribbing around its edges which helps the mattress better resist compression than similar mattresses.
The Titan Plus mattress’s cover layer features 1″ of gel-infused memory foam to help regulate temperature and reduce heat retention, and its support layer comprises 6″ of individually wrapped TitanCaliber coils as well as 3″ of high density support foam for added cooling and comfort. Furthermore, this mattress offers an extremely thick feel, making it suitable for heavier people; plus its construction also features strong layers such as ribbing and heavy duty foams which offer durability.
Brooklyn Bedding provides this mattress with a 10-year limited warranty and offers a 120-night in-home sleep trial period, but please wait at least 30 days before returning it as it needs time to break in properly. They don’t charge restocking or return fees but may charge return shipping costs; making this an attractive choice for anyone searching for an affordable hybrid mattress solution.
