Best Overall Mattress

Satva Classic

Satva Classic

 Height: 11.5″ or 14.5″
 Firmness levels: Plush Soft, Luxury Firm, Firm 
 Sizes: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, California King 
 Trial period: 180 days (with a $99 return pickup fee)

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 traditional innerspring mattresses you find in stores, but with an online, direct-to-consumer platform to give it a competitive price. You also get other shopping perks, like free delivery and set up, old mattress removal, and a half-year trial period to make sure you love it. It comes in three firmness levels, with “Luxury Firm” being the most popular. 

What it’s made of: A quilted three-inch fiberfill pillowtop to create a plush surface, a layer of high density foam for support and pressure relief, individual steel coils that respond to your movements and offer breathability, a base steel coil system to prevent sagging and create more airflow and firm foam around the edges so the mattress doesn’t sink when you climb in and out of bed.

Tester notes: It’s consistently top-rated among dozens of reviewers on our panel, earning high scores for comfort, support and overall sleep quality. It also earned glowing feedback on its customer service, from ease of ordering to speed of in-home set up to quick fixes if any issues came up throughout the process. Other highlights from our reviewers include the firmness (especially compared to foam mattresses) and the good edge support. Some users even called it the “best mattress ever” and said it led to the “best sleep I’ve ever had.”  One described it as “firm, but not hard” while another said it’s “comfortable and just the right amount of plush.”
