Weeding through the endless foam-mattress options online can feel as exhausting as suffering through a bad night’s sleep. But we’ve tested dozens of mattresses since 2016 so you don’t have to.

Since the pandemic halted our ability to group-test mattresses, our sleep team members have been assessing mattresses alone in the office and at home. Our latest update includes the top-performing mattresses from our previous group tests, as well as a new budget pick and a range of additional options (from fluffy to firm) in our notable contenders section.

If you’re looking for a traditional coil mattress or for a mattress that combines springs and foam, we have a guide to the best innerspring mattresses and one for the best hybrid mattresses (which includes some of the picks in this guide). If you’re looking to limit spending and don’t mind compromising on looks, nuance, and longevity, check out our guide to the best cheap mattresses (under $400).
