When you buy through our links, we may earn a small commission at no additional cost to you.

Even with a deluge of new offerings from startups and old-school mattress companies, all touting game-changing tech and the promise of a perfect night’s sleep, most mattresses fall into three simple categories: spring (aka innerspring), foam, and hybrid. We go into more depth about what to look for in our mattress buying guide, but if you’re shopping for a new mattress, you should try out at least a couple of each—you might be surprised by what you find comfortable.

Saatva Classic, a good innerspring mattress

Saatva Classic

A good innerspring mattress
Offering a classic innerspring bounce, paired with a cushy but understated Euro top, the Saatva appeals to those who want to nestle in as opposed to feel engulfed. But it doesn’t have the best motion isolation.

Novaform ComfortGrande, best foam mattress under $1,000

Novaform ComfortGrande

Best foam mattress under $1,000
This Costco bestseller is a great value, made from layers of foam that are as dense (and probably as durable) as many mattresses that cost twice as much. Testers loved its cuddly yet supportive feel, but some found it too firm.
We recommend
Zenhaven, best latex-foam mattress


Best latex-foam mattress
The all-latex Zenhaven is $1,000 more than similar online options, but it should prove more durable and breathable (and thus feel cooler) than many foam mattresses. Good latex mattresses are expensive, but we think this one is a good value.

Leesa Sapira Hybrid Mattress, a crowd-pleasing hybrid

Leesa Sapira Hybrid Mattress

A crowd-pleasing hybrid
Our staffers loved this hybrid’s just-right sink. Designed with individually wrapped coils and four layers of foam, Leesa’s higher-end model offers more edge support than its all-foam counterpart.
