Not to add more pressure, but buying a new mattress is one of the most important purchases you’ll make for your home. It needs to be comfortable and supportive to give you the best possible sleep, and durable so you won’t have to replace it within a few years. And because mattresses can get pricey, you want to make sure you’re investing in one that’s actually worth the cost.
The Good Housekeeping Institute Textiles Lab reviews mattresses of all kinds, from traditional innerspring mattress that you buy in stores to memory foam mattresses and mattress-in-a-box styles that you buy online, cooling mattresses, mattresses for back pain, hybrid mattresses that blend coil and foam, organic mattresses, mattresses for side sleepers and more.
In addition to researching the brands, materials and features, we have product experts and consumer testers try each mattress out and we survey our tester panel to get in-depth reviews from real users. Our latest survey had responses from 5,500 mattress owners, and we reviewed over 126,000 data points before making these recommendations.
While many "online mattress" brands might have you picturing the foam styles that are compressed in a box, Saatva is different: It's like the innerspring and pillowtop mattresses you find in stores, but with an online, direct-to-consumer platf orm to give it a competitive price. You also get other shopping perks, like free delivery and set up, old mattress removal, and a 180-night trial to make sure you love it.
It's consistently top-rated among our consumer panel, earning high scores for comfort, support, and overall sleep quality. Some even said it's top 10 mattresses and it gave "the best sleep I've ever had." It comes in three firmness levels, with "Luxury Firm" being the most popular. Users note that it does feel particularly firm and liked that it has good edge support for getting in and out of bed.
