Best and Worst Mattress Brands

Two online mattress companies stand out, beating out major brands for value in a new Consumer Reports survey

Shopping for a new mattress can be a nail-biting process. Make the wrong decision, and you could end up regretting a pricey purchase. Even worse, buy a bed that's not right for you, and you could have a hard time getting a good night's sleep.

But you might feel more confident if you went to the store armed with useful information from thousands of people like you. That's where the new Consumer Reports mattress brand survey, covering 28 brands, enters the picture. 

Nearly 62,000 Consumer Reports subscribers told us about the mattress brands they bought, including Bob-O-Pedic, Casper, IKEA, MacyBed, Novaform (Costco), Sealy, Serta, Simmons (Beautyrest), Sleep Number (Select Comfort), Tempur-Pedic, and Tuft & Needle.

None of the 28 brands received especially negative marks, but some did much better than others when it comes to comfort, value, support, durability, improving sleep, and whether survey respondents would buy that brand again. 

Two brands that sell almost exclusively online not only earned a high overall score but also got top marks for support and value—though both have been in business for only a few years. Among the newest brands in the nation, these companies each offer a single foam mattress model shipped to your door and no-hassle returns.

Their overall satisfaction scores are significantly higher than those of most other mattress brands subscribers told us about, some of which are much better known. Owners of a bed from one of these new-school mattress brands are also the most likely to say they’d buy the same brand again.
