When you’re picking a mattress with your spouse or significant other, you want that bed to be comfortable. But you also want it to be affordable. That’s where Consumer Reports comes in…
Which mattress is best?
The magazine took a look at mattresses for couples and paid close attention to factors like bounce resistance, stabilization testing and firmness options.
All the following mattresses were identified as best buys by Consumer Reports:
- Sealy Posturepedic Hybrid Trust Cushion 1 @ $1,275
- Charles P. Rogers St. Regis Pillowtop @ $1,100
- Denver Mattress Doctor’s Choice @ $500
- Novaform 14′ Serafina Pearl Gel (Costco) @ $800
- Tuft & Needle T&N @ $600
- Sleep Number c2 Bed @ $800
A new mattress seller for a new generation
You’ll notice the inclusion of Tuft & Needle among the Consumer Reports best buy mattresses. They’re just one of a handful of new companies favored by Millennials, who are reshaping the marketplace for mattresses in a way that puts a premium on convenience and less emphasis on coil counts and holiday weekend blowout sales.
These newer companies are all characterized by easy online sales; their beds are shipped to you tightly folded up in a little box; they may only have one kind of mattress available; they charge lower prices; and you’ll enjoy generous return policies if you’re on their customers.
