A good night’s rest makes all the difference in the morning when you’re struggling to wake up, a good mattress can be key to ensuring that you start the day refreshed. But a good mattress isn’t necessarily the same thing for everybody, and sometimes you’re best bet is going for a pick that’s a bit more personalized to your specific needs. Luckily, there’s a range of mattress startups that have revolutionized the industry, giving you a wider mattress selection to choose from for the perfect sleep. Whether you want convenient delivery or a one-size-fits-all, we rounded up the best go-to mattress options on the market to help you find a mattress option that’s perfect for you, no matter how particular you might be.
Yogabed is all about instantly adjusting to your sleepy shifting during the night, with its Instant Response foam and YogaGel layer, which pulls away heat from the top layer of the mattress while supporting your body as you switch sleeping positions. Best of all, Yogabed created an innovative mattress slip design, where you can effortlessly unzip the entire cover to clean it with your laundry. The Yogabed comes in sizes from twin to king, with prices starting at $600. It’s great for anyone looking for more “hug” and bounciness in their mattress.
Casper’s appeal is its one-size-fits-all approach, by which the brand has even come out with sheets and pillowcases to go along with their mattress. Its easy-peasy ordering is meant for those who aren’t as picky about the mattress they’re sleeping on, and who just want an overall good mattress. Casper offers that with a hybrid mattress design, with latex foam on the top to provide cooling and memory foam to mold to your body comfortably. It comes in sizes from twin to king, with prices ranging from $500-1,000. Not only that, but Casper’s product is delivered in a small box right to your doorstep, which conveniently makes it a great solution for millennials and working professionals.
Helix is an all-foam customizable mattress that is based on your specific needs. To buy the mattress, you take a short survey that asks you about everything from desired mattress firmness to preferred temperature regulation so it can find the best combination for you. Instead of Casper’s one-size-fits-all philosophy, Helix embraces personalization, believing that your best night’s rest should be tailored to you and only you. Since it’s all-foam, however, Helix’s mattress construction is quite thin with no padding. This allows air to flow more easily to cool you down, but might not be that great in terms of support. Nonetheless, Helix’s design is suited for couples since it offers a blended mattress option that takes the priorities of both sleepers into consideration. It’s also great for those who aren’t entirely sure what they need in a mattress, since the insightful test assesses your current sleeping situation and does all of the problem-solving for you. Prices range from $600-1,000, with sizes ranging from twin to king, but simple financing (unlike its competitors) is offered to split the payments into monthly spans.
Tuft & Needle
For those looking to save a little more money while still sleeping on a great mattress, Tuft & Needle has you covered. It’s firmer than other mattresses on the market, with a simple slip cover that cools your body down and alleviate air flow circulation and pressure relief that works to ease your bodily aches from the stresses of the day. Prices start from $350 (twin-size mattress) to $750 (California king), which makes it a great deal for students or newly graduated young professionals who are moving into their first apartment. Around the same price as a standard mattress from IKEA, Tuft & Needle can certainly offer a little more bang for your buck.
Saatva has three levels of firmness, so regardless of where you fall on the softness/firmness spectrum, this brand is sure to have something that’s a good fit for you. Saatva is built from coil-on-coil inner springs with eco-friendly organic materials. The coils serve to support your body without putting pressure on the mattress over time, preventing common wear and tear. Firmness ranges from “plush soft,” to “luxury firm” to simply “firm.” Moreover, Saatva’s emphasis on sustainability extends to their cushioned pillow top, which is made from organic cotton. However, Saatva is unique in that you don’t get much size variety here – the brand only offers a queen size mattress, with the midrange cost of $900.
An uncomfortable mattress shouldn’t be something to lose sleep over, and with any of these top-notch options, it certainly won’t be. But for good measure, it might be good to keep a bottle of reBloom nearby, since some days need more than just the perfect mattress to unwind from.
