Ask The Mattress Expert:

What is the best mattress?

Tiffany D.


Great question Tiffany! Thank you for taking the time to inquire about such an important topic. I will do my best to make this simple, especially considering how difficult the industry has made it.

When starting the process of shopping for a new mattress set most people go straight to the internet these days. I do it for many products that I buy. However, I have found in my 20 years in this industry that the web can be your best friend or your worst enemy when it comes to researching mattresses. Let me explain. While the internet does have a considerable amount of information on bedding, it is usually biased information direct from the manufacturer. If you are on Tempur-pedic’s website they would have you believe that they have the only opton for your needs. The same is true of Sealy Posturpedic, Simmons Beautyrest, Serta I comfort, Stearns and Foster and so on. On the other hand independent sleep related sites you are at the mercy of one person’s opinion. What I have found is that mattresses are such a subjective item you really have to get out and try it for yourself.

I do realize that going to a brick and mortar store or a gallery of mattresses can also be an experience that can cause anxiety. That is why I suggest you start your research on the opposite end of the purchase. Instead of researching pillowtops, eurotops, coils, gel springs ect. How about doing research on which mattress company in your town has the best:

  • Customer Reviews
  • BBB A+ Rating
  • Delivery Options
  • Most Qualified Sales Associates

Maybe try a local company that has been in business for several years. Some companies go as far as working with local doctors, chiropractors and other health professionals to learn how to provide excellent service to their customers. The way I see it is if a company has all of that going for it they probably have the research on the best brands. As a result they have the proper credentials. When you do this type of research will help you avoid biased information and allow you to go into the buying experience knowing you are in good hands. The more confident you are while shopping the easier it will be to find the right mattress and foundation.

With that said I will give you a list of what I feel are some of the best brands in comfort, quality and support. There are in no specific order:
