A happy woman relaxing on a mattress.

Comfort is a top priority for many mattress shoppers, but it can be hard to gauge, especially if you’re shopping online. But what if you could ask thousands of people who have actually slept on a mattress for their unbiased opinion? 

That’s just what we did with our combined mattress surveys. And the result is like having 73,676 friends with a decade’s worth of knowledge tell you about their experiences.

Only two innerspring mattress brands whose models we've tested also receive our top ratings for comfort—Avocado and Charles P. Rogers.

More on Mattresses

We asked CR members to rate the comfort of their mattress and used the data to generate ratings by brand and type of mattress. We also scored mattress brands on owner satisfaction based on a member’s overall judgment of such factors as firmness/softness, value, quality of sleep, and more.

At CR we buy and test queen-size mattresses from well-known brands such as Beautyrest, Sealy, Serta, Stearns & Foster, and Tempur-Pedic, and from relatively new players including Avocado, Casper, Leesa, Reverie, and Tuft & Needle.

Using lab equipment and human subjects, we evaluate how well a mattress supports the body for both back and side sleepers, how easily sleepers can shift their weight without disturbing a partner, and how well the mattress keeps its shape over time.

To simulate the typical eight- to 10-year useful life span of a mattress, we conduct a test in which a 308-pound roller is pushed over each model 30,000 times.

Here are the top-performing mattresses from the brands that CR members rate highly for comfort and owner satisfaction. For more mattress options, members can browse our mattress ratings with test results for more than 150 foam, innerspring, and adjustable air mattresses.
