An excellent mattress is essential to getting a restful night’s rest. It should evenly distribute body weight for pressure relief and spinal alignment.
But an inferior mattress can lead to backache and disrupt sleep quality, leading to difficulties restful rest and even leading to health complications such as cardiovascular disease and mental illness.
1. Bear Elite Hybrid
The Bear Elite Hybrid mattress combines foam and coils for maximum comfort, featuring a medium firmness level to fit most sleepers’ preferences. With luxurious feeling foam cushions that provide supportive back pain relief as well as excellent motion isolation capabilities this bed will be sure to please.
The Elite Hybrid mattress comes with a 120-night sleep trial period and limited lifetime warranty, providing plenty of time for you to decide if it meets your needs or not. If it doesn’t, no problem: just return it at any point during this time and the company will arrange a pickup service, donating your mattress directly to a charity near your location.
This mattress stands out from other Bear offerings with its innovative construction. The cover is composed of soft yet breathable fabric featuring Celliant technology, which reacts with your body heat to increase blood circulation and facilitate healing. Furthermore, there is a cooling gel memory foam layer intended to keep surfaces cool while also offering supportive cushioning.
Underneath the gel foam is a layer of individually encased pocketed coils. These springs contour to your curves for balanced support, eliminating sinkage that might occur on other mattresses. Higher gauge coils in the center provide extra lumbar support while reinforced coils at the edges prevent any bed sag on one or more sides.
The Bear Elite Hybrid mattress is an excellent choice for couples seeking an all-encompassing mattress that provides various levels of comfort. Its zoned comfort foam has cut divots that promote airflow and target pressure points differently in each area of the mattress, so even heavy side sleepers will activate all comfort layers. Furthermore, this mattress provides good edge support with a moderate bounce level – essential features for couples who like rolling around during sleep or prefer lying near its edges. Furthermore, durability tests indicate this mattress performs very well – however we suggest avoiding sitting or sleeping on its very edges as this will significantly decrease its life expectancy over time.
2. Nectar Mattress
Nectar Mattress has become a household name due to its competitive prices and generous warranty coverage. Sleepers have one year to decide if the mattress suits them, with discounts offered during sales periods which include free pillows and sheets with purchase. Additionally, Nectar frequently runs sales that offer additional incentives like this.
The mattress features three foam layers, including a gel memory foam layer which improves airflow and keeps you cool throughout the night. Each CertiPUR-US certified layer offers support, pressure relief, durability and quilted cover that’s cool to touch while helping hold in all those foam layers in place – something they warn against since removing it would reduce comfort levels and potentially void their warranty.
The medium firm feel of the Nectar mattress makes it suitable for back and stomach sleepers as well as those suffering from joint pain such as arthritis. It cradles hips to alleviate discomfort in this area while its lower layers help keep spine alignment. Unfortunately, however, side sleepers will likely not find enough support on this mattress.
Nectar mattresses’ main drawback is their lack of resistance when sitting on its edges, which may make it uncomfortable for heavier individuals or couples who require support around their sides. Furthermore, its construction makes it susceptible to leakage; however, this issue is covered under their warranty agreement.
The Nectar Mattress can be found both online and at nearly 4,000 mattress stores throughout the country, though pricing, shipping policies, and return policies may differ between retail outlets. Prices, shipping policies, and return policies often offer lower prices than their MSRP, often offering discounts during holiday sales events like Memorial Day and Black Friday sales events. It is backed by a Forever Warranty which will replace it or an equivalent model should any significant sagging occur as well as cover any stains or tears to the mattress that occur over time.
3. Plank Firm
The Plank Firm mattress is ideal for people who enjoy firm beds. Additionally, this mattress may also work for stomach sleepers who appreciate more neutral feel without being concerned with sagging over time. Unfortunately, however, lightweight side sleepers may find this too firm of an option for their comfort.
This mattress’s Firm side offers an additional softness with its quilted top layer that features slightly thicker quilting for additional cushion. On both sides of this mattress there is high-density foam base layer to provide durability, while a Titanflex comfort foam transition layer provides transition and quick response under pressure – yielding slightly to pressure but quickly returning back to its original form.
Next comes the support core, composed of pocketed coils individually encased in fabric for extra durability and longevity. On top of the support core is 2.5″ of Brooklyn Bedding’s proprietary TitanFlex foam which adds softness without becoming overly fluffy – another key differentiator from other all-foam beds.
After this layer, a 1.5″ quilted top made of premium Talalay latex provides additional cushioning and an even softer feel than on the Firm side of this mattress. This material is identical to what Brooklyn Bedding uses in their more costly mattresses.
Thin comfort layers hinder this mattress’s ability to conform and adapt to pressure points on the body, giving the Plank Firm only a moderate rating in motion isolation and making it less suitable for couples or light sleepers. Still, its design keeps you firmly on top of the bed rather than sinking too deeply, preventing hips from shifting too frequently during sleep. In addition to solid motion isolation properties, its Firm side offers some great contouring benefits for back sleepers while offering ample lumbar support – an attractive feature when considering options like this mattress!
4. Savvy Rest
Savvy Rest stands out among organic mattress providers by offering fully customizable mattresses that allow customers to choose between natural Dunlop or Talalay latex (or both) certified by GOTS as well as cotton casing and wool layers certified organic by GOTS; all materials used are free from chemical flame retardants and VOCs (volatile organic compounds) released by polyurethane foams – so are safe for your family’s comfort and health.
Returns or refunds are accepted if there’s a manufacturing defect, in order to minimize sanitizing for reselling. While this policy is admirable, other mattress companies donate or recycle returned mattresses instead of reselling them. If a layer of latex doesn’t suit you (with a fee), you can always switch it out – though shipping both ways must still be paid for.
The Serenity model is our most popular option, featuring three layers of natural Dunlop and Talalay latex contained within an organic casing. For added luxury, Harmony adds one soft layer of Talalay latex for extra luxurious surface. Both models can be purchased with either standard (9″) or low-profile (5″) height options.
To properly support a latex mattress, a rigid surface such as a foundation or platform bed will be needed. Savvy Rest’s matching natural foundation features a solid wood frame with three quarter inch slats spaced 2.5″ to 3″, and either standard or low profile height options to meet all of your bed options – ideal for traditional and modern platform beds as well as antique beds without boxsprings!
Besides its firm foam mattresses, the company also offers two innerspring options that have earned certification by Greenguard Gold: Earthspring and SerenitySpring. Both models provide good support for both the environment and body with their pocketed coils cradling whatever’s on them to reduce motion transfer; its perimeter coils zoned firmer provide edge support. While Earthspring is shallower than SerenitySpring so may be best suited to bunk beds or petite adults under 160 lb.
