Ultimate mattress buying guide
Memory foam vs Latex vs Innerspring vs Latex mattress
|Type||Memory foam||Latex||Inner Spring||Hybrid|
Memory Foam，Memory foam mattresses typically use a visco elastic outer foam with a firmer polyurethane at its core. In this way, the feel and comfort level can be varied by changing the thickness and weight of both the outer and inner foam. Memory foam mattress is the most welcomed mattress type around the world and has the highest user satisfaction. Some manufacture will design their special foam which is better than original memory foam, like Leesa’s special Avena foam. Don’t miss our top 10 best memory foam mattress, we listed Pros and Cons of each to help you get the best mattress within your budget.
Latex Foam，there are two kinds of latex foam, Natural latex and Synthetic latex, Natural latex is manufactured from sap tapped from rubber trees, like spindle mattress. Synthetic latex (aka polyurethane foam/memory foam) is made of petroleum by-products, sometimes actually mixed with natural latex,like Helix mattress and Brooklyn bedding.Latex mattress is more friendly for sex . We did sum up and ranked top 5 best latex mattress for your reference.
Innerspring，Innerspring mattresses contain metal springs or coils surrounded by cotton, wool, or synthetic filler, covered in an upholstery finish. Innerspring mattresses used to be the most common types of mattresses, but now only few part of family treat it as first priority, it’s outdated technology and often cost more than its actual cost. The best seller of innerspring mattress is Sealy.
Hybrid, in this case, they would use innerspring, latex and memory foam, one consideration is to save cost, another is to combine the advantage of each material together. The most popular combination is latex as top layer+ memory foam as comfort layer. Such as Dromma bed or Ghostbed mattress.
Which mattress type has the highest satisfaction
Per review from sleep like the dead, memory foam and latex mattress has the highest user satisfaction. Tradition inner spring mattress has the lowest user satisfaction. This is coincident with my personal experience.
Get best mattress rated Leesa mattress as 9.6/10,this is an awesome memory foam mattress,this is an awesome memory foam mattress, it get very high ratings by real customers as well as other mattress review site.
We ranked Dromma bed as 9.5/10, this is a latex hybrid mattress, with natural latex on top and gel memory foam as the comfort layer, There two mattress are the best lover of getbestmattress.com.
While as the same time, we don’t recommend pure memory foam mattress,they sleep hot, especially for big guy or heavy people, and don’t have enough bouncy.Even Leesa they use their special design avena foam with air flow design to fix these two problems,that’s why it’s more expensive than cheaper memory foam mattress on amazon.
Mattress firmness and comfort level
Firm, there is not a lot of “give” when it comes to a firm mattress, meaning it has a harder feel to it than other types of mattresses. While some people prefer the overall feel and comfort level of a firm mattress, others invest in one because of the health benefits it can offer. A person’s weight will be equally distributed on a firm mattress, which is ideal for someone with back pain in need of a high level of support. A firm mattress is also known to keep its shape over a long period of time, which is important to someone in need of a consistent support structure to help keep body aches and pains to a minimum.
Medium, actually, most of these online mattress companies just provide 1 firmness scale to save cost, that’s medium, if 10 is hardest, the firmness scale would be 5-7/10. This comfort level would adapt to almost everyone, no matter you are a back sleeper, side sleeper or stomach sleeper. If you don’t know which comfort level to choose or you and your husband/wife have different sleeping behaviors, you can choose this firmness scale.
Soft, if a mattress is too soft, it may lack of support we lead and cause back or lower back pain when you wake up next day, but on the other hand, soft mattress is more comfortable than firm mattress. So some one especially pure side sleepers would prefer softer mattress. I don’t recommend you sleep on too soft mattress because you may feel hot and sink too much into it, especially for heavy people.
What you need is a supportive bed but not a too hard bed or too soft bed.That’s why most online mattress companies only has one firmness scale to pick up, medium. Although they will lose some customers who prefer very soft feeling or very firm feeling.Research data doesn’t tell lies,you’d better correct your sleeping behavior and pick up a medium feeling mattress,for your healthy, that’s a long-term solution.
- Pressure points such as shoulders, hips, or knees are pushed up above the rest of the body
- Numb or tingling shoulders or hips
- Sensation of sleeping on top of the mattress, or away from it
- Pressure points such as the shoulders, hips, or knees are sinking below the rest of the body
- Difficulty getting in and out of the bed
- Sensation of “bottoming out” on the upper layer(s) of the mattress
|Mattress firmness||Low weight||Average weight||Over weight||Side sleepers||Back sleepers||Stomach sleepers|
How to choose mattress size
Twin and Twin XL are mostly for children, when they are very small, a twin mattress would be enough, as they grow up into 10 years or more, you need switch to Twin XL.
Queen size is most family’s choice, and suit for the couple who wish to sleep closer.
Some family would prefer King or CA king, one is wider, another is longer, they would give you more space to toss and turn.

Top 3 mattress you should think over before buying
- Casper stared their business long years ago, and I guess it’s one of the best well know online mattress companies in the world, personaly I don’t like it because it’s too firm, especially for thin person or side sleepers, but maybe good to go with heavy people. And you can get Ghostbed at a cheaper price, then why we waste the money?
- Saatva is another very famous online mattress, they started their business 2010 and got very huge sales, but this is still a coil mattress(they use coil on coil structure), and some customers(if not too much) complain about sagging and lack of motion isolation, and some of them reported that “ECO friendly material” they claimed is not good as expected. I guess they realized these problems so publish Loom&Leaf and Zenhaven to extend their business.
- Purple mattress only 9.5″ high, but sells at $999 for queen size, and compared with most memory foam, it’s lack of contouring and did poor on motion isolation. Compared with latex mattress, it’s lack of bouncy. The only advantage is it did a good job on cool sleeping. But consider it’s price, I guess you have better choice.
