Best Mattresses 2019

When you're shopping for a brand new bed you always want to get the best mattress on the market. But which mattress is the best for you? There really isn't one perfect mattress that fulfills the needs of all the diverse kinds of sleepers, body sizes and shapes, sleeping positions and budgets.

You just want to find a comfortable and affordable mattress with a minimum of hassle. But as you've probably realized, finding the best mattress for your bed is definitely not easy. Remember that a mattress is not just another piece of furniture - it's an important part of your health and well-being. That's why choosing the right one is vital to deep, restful sleep and a happy home.

What is the best type of mattress for me?

Obviously, you are not the same as everyone else. You have unique, individual needs and sleep comfort preferences. Just because a mattress is popular or a best seller doesn't make it the right one for you.

The key to finding the best mattress material type for you is knowing your own individual sleeping style and unique personal needs and sleep preferences.

Memory foam? Latex? Innerspring? Foam and spring combo? A comfier-than-average sofa bed? All the choices available make deciding on a bed material very confusing.

Every type of mattress has its own advantages and drawbacks, but you will find that one of them is a better choice for you. Choosing the best type for you depends on your unique comfort requirements.

Here's where it gets complicated. Mattress companies come out with newer, more complicated mattress designs, manufacturing methods and advanced bed material technology all the time.

What is the most comfortable mattress?

I think we can agree that it would be really awesome if there was just one mattress that suited you, me and everyone else in the world perfectly. That ideal mattress would...

  • be just right for every different type of sleeper and body size
  • perfectly suit you and everyone else's sleeping position, shape and weight
  • have just the right firmness and softness
  • properly support you in all the right places and relieve your back pain
  • fit everyone's budget and your desired price range
  • stay at the ideal temperature range for both you and your bed partner
  • remain cool in the summer and keep you as warm as toast during the winter

A mattress like that would be truly magical. Sadly, that mattress doesn't exist in the real world. There isn't one perfect mattress model that can satisfy every type of sleeper in the world. I know - I've been searching for it for years! If I had a magic wand, I wouldn't hesitate to create that mattress. It would definitely make your mattress shopping (and my job) much easier.

But you can achieve great results for your bed when you know your...

  • preferred mattress material
  • desired levels of firmness and softness
  • usual sleeping position
  • ideal price range
  • body type and size
  • unique health considerations

Which allows you to be more specific and zero in on the exact mattress that'll give you years of satisfaction and comfort.

What is the best memory foam mattress?

The best memory foam mattresses are the ones that are able to provide you with the unique advantages of memory foam for enhancing your sleep comfort. The best memory foam mattress for you is going to be the one that best fits your unique sleep preferences.

You may want to consider choosing a memory foam mattress if you...

  • want a bed with good stability that isolates your movements to avoid disturbing your bed partner
  • like your mattress to contour to your body shape to reduce pain and pressure points
  • like the sensation of being cradled by your mattress
  • prefer a bed that is quiet and doesn't make noise
  • want a bed that provides you with decent amount of support

Memory foam has good motion isolation which reduces motion transfer, preventing vibrations or bouncing across the mattress/bed. Moving or getting up won't disturb your bed partner (or spill that glass of wine you left standing on the bed for some reason).

This is what makes memory foam a good choice for couples - if you move around a lot in bed or want to get up without waking your partner, you might like a memory foam bed.

Memory foam uses your body heat to conform and mold to your unique body shape. And memory foam is better at contouring to your body shape than any other mattress materials.

It is especially good at distributing your body weight and reducing pressure points which are the cause of tossing and turning (higher density memory foam will give you the best results).

Memory foam is silent because it doesn't have any metal springs or moving parts that can squeak.

Memory foam usually provides good back and spine support and allows for proper spinal alignment with a good amount firmness, especially with higher density foam.
