With foam mattresses that pop out of a box after being delivered to your doorstep, Casper and Tuft & Needle have burst onto the mattress scene. The upstarts boast that their mattresses are made in America but so are those from such major old-guard brands as Tempur Sealy (including Stearns & Foster), Serta, and Beautyrest. Turns out that when you turn in at night you’re likely sleeping on a mattress made, or mostly made, here. Consumer Reports has tested dozens and has plenty to recommend.

Tuft and Needle says that, “our fabric comes from a 90-year-old, family-owned textile mill in the Carolinas” and Casper says “our knit fabrics come from South Carolina, our wovens from Belgium, and they are sewn together by hand in Illinois and South Carolina.” We found that getting some textiles from elsewhere was a common thread among mattress makers even when the mattresses were otherwise assembled in this country. Here are some that impressed in our tests.

The innerspring Sealy Posturepedic Hybrid Trust Cushion, $1,275, a CR Best Buy, and foam Serta iComfort Savant EverFeel, $1,575, another top pick, proved to be comfortable choices in our tests. The innerspring Charles P. Rogers St. Regis Pillowtop, $1,100, another CR Best Buy, is also made stateside.

Tuft & Needle Ten

In addition to Casper and Tuft & Needle, another new brand sold primarily over the Internet is made in the U.S. Saatva mattresses, including the Saatva Luxury Firm Euro Pillowtop innerspring, $900, are" 100-percent" made in the USA, says Saatva. We liked the $500 Tuft & Needle Ten foam bed we tested and named it a CR Best Buy. The Casper, $850, also made our top-picks list.

Of course, you may not care where your mattress is made as long as you can get a good night's sleep. The luxury brand, Duxiana, is made in Sweden. We tested the high-priced Duxiana Dux 515, which costs $7,595 and made our recommended list. However, the $4,800 Duxiana Dux 101 fell just short.

Because some companies are more forthcoming than others about where the materials for their mattresses are sourced, it's hard to say for certain which mattresses are made primarily of American goods. But many brands proudly tout their American heritage. We can tell you from the results of our mattress tests which mattresses provide the best back and side support, are as firm or soft as claimed, and will last for years. If you haven’t shopped for a mattress in a while, be sure to read our mattress buying guide .
