    1. This memory foam mattress that'll make you late to all your morning appointments.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This bed is terrible if you really have to get up and be somewhere in the morning. Seriously, I am a student and have trouble getting out of this bed, even knowing that I need to be in class on time. It is luxurious and comfortable, keeps you warm but not too warm, and just lets you float off to sleep." —ndj

    amazon.com

    Psst. I purchased this mattress and bed frame after researching this story. I love them!

    Promising review: "This mattress FAR exceeded my expectations. The bed puffed up almost immediately and was ready to sleep on within a couple of hours. The bed is firm yet soft and supports pressure points. I got the 12-inch and am glad I did. I was also pleased that it completely reduces the motion or movement on the other side of the bed. It is WELL worth every penny. Sheets fit well. BARGAIN!" —Aubrie D.

    Try it with a 14-inch platform bed frame for $57.33+ (available in twin, twin XL, full, queen, and king). No box spring required. (I use this without a box spring and LOVE it.)

    3. This low-VOC memory foam model that ships rolled up, but will puff up to a firm sleeper.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I researched forever, and hemmed and hawed, and finally took the bite on this one. Queen 12-inch. Needed a mattress for the guest room. The price was great, fast delivery, nice quality if you like a firm mattress. No off-gassing. Expanded beautifully — to get the corners unfurled I had to unzip the casing it came in to give it some room." —diane a.

    Thickness: 6-inch, 8-inch, 10-inch, and 12-inch

    4. This medium-firm mattress combining a memory foam top with innerspring support — in case you don't want to go all in with memory foam.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Awesome, so comfy! I'm a fat girl at 250 lbs. It holds me great, not flimsy, doesn't dent. I was so amazed I got a real mattress without having to rent a truck. It's like a miracle in a small package!" —Judy Quesada

    5. This gel-infused, medium-firm one with temperature regulation that even a discerning pup can enjoy.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I LOVE this mattress so much. I even spent the second day with it in bed all day. Me and my dog, we feel like we are queens. Our favorite new place in the house. I sleep so much better and just sort of melt into it at the end of the day. Less tossing and turning, which I like a lot. I just want to be comfy. This has so far lived up to my hopes." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $153+ Sizes: twin, twin XL, full, full XL, queen, short queen, king, and California king

    Try it with this metal and wood platform frame for $128.69+ (available in sizes twin, full, queen, and king). No box spring required.

    6. This self-ventilating model that'll sleep cool thanks to gel particles encased in its memory foam.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We had a Sleep Number Bed for almost 10 years. When it was time to replace it, we did a good bit of research on memory foam and gel memory foam mattresses and stumbled upon this one. I could not believe the price and thought it had to be 'too good to be true.' Well, we have been sleeping on it for about 10 days and it has been exactly as advertised. I am a large guy (6'2" 250 lbs.) so the idea of it being too firm has not been an issue. We have also had no problem with it being too warm. A real steal at this price. Love it!" —John M. Kovacs

    Thickness: 8-inch, 10.5-inch, and 12-inch

    7. This firm spring mattress with pressure-relieving foam that won't disturb your partner.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I cannot feel any springs while laying in it and my body leaves no indentations. I am extremely sensitive to chemical odors and this mattress has none. Zero. This is a quality mattress, great for every night use by a normal-sized adult. I spent $1800 on sale for an inner-spring mattress on my queen-sized bed, and this mattress is every bit as good as that one. UPDATE: 14 months later, I just bought another of these mattresses. The one I bought last year remains in perfect form and is extremely comfortable." —Deb

    8. This gel memory foam futon mattress for when you need the versatility of a futon, but want to actually sleep on it.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My elderly dog complains about it being an inch or two higher than the old mattress, making it harder for her to jump on, so I may have to put a box on the floor for her. But other than that, I can't find anything wrong with it. At first glance, it seems to be uncomfortably firm but once I sat down on it, it sank me down into a heavenly supportive comfortableness I've been lacking since I first bought a futon several years ago." —Dusklupe

    Price: $230.40 Colors: eight colors

    Thickness: 8-inch

    Try it with this wood futon frame for $329+ (available in full and queen). No box spring required.

    9. This cushy pillow-top with independently encased coils and a bamboo cover can satisfy those who aren't into the idea of *just* foam.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Going on about eight months now. No flat spots, no blown springs. This bed is still amazingly comfortable, has lots of support, and the foam top really relaxes my tired back at the end of the day." —Gino

    Price: $244.80+ Sizes: full, queen, and king

    Thickness: 13-inch

    Try it with this premium steel foundation for $87.52+ (available in twin) and industrial canopy frame for $241.99+ (available in queen). Box spring not required, but reviews say it's OK to use if you prefer one.

    10. This comfy inflatable mattress that'll save the day next time the family's shacking up at your place for the holidays.

    amzn.to, amazon.com

    Promising review: "The directions to inflate and deflate are clearly explained and the process is a snap. They look great and after eight days of testing, (I followed the instructions to inflate and deflate them a few times first to gently stretch — not test — the seams), they do not seem to have lost any air. The built-in compressor and cubby for the plug is a nice design feature and the strong carry/storage bag is actually big enough to easily accommodate the mattress when deflated and folded up." —Emellebee

    Price: $94.95 Size: queen

    Thickness: 19-inch

    No box spring required.

    11. This lofty 14-inch hybrid that'll pack the punch of an innerspring *and* memory foam.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I went to brick and mortar stores in town and laid on several types of beds to determine that most memory foam was not supportive enough for my taste. Therefore I decided on the hybrid bed, which includes a good amount of memory foam on the top layers, while still having a supportive coil system on the bottom. I have been using this mattress for several months now. I have never slept better. Yes the mattress is firm and supportive, however it does have a plush feel to it at the same time. You do not sink into the mattress. My back no longer hurts when I wake up." —HeyYou

    Price: $315.30+ Sizes: twin XL, full, queen, king, and California king

    Thickness: 14-inch

    Try it with this low-profile box spring for $92.83+ (available in sizes twin, twin XL, full, full XL, queen, king, and California king) and heavy duty frame for $55.05+ (available in sizes twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, and California king).

    12. This responsive foam one with a soft cover to make your bed a comfy haven.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I like a firm mattress. I sleep on a Tempur-Pedic and love it. When I needed a new mattress for my guest room I saw this one and the reviews were so good that I had to try it. I slept several nights in the guest room to try it and it was very comfy. My son, who had back surgery a few years ago and only sleeps on a Tempur-Pedic, slept on it for a week and never complained. I didn't tell him what I paid or how it was shipped, but simply said that I had replaced the mattress with a memory foam — but not a Tempur-Pedic. When I asked how he slept he said, 'great!' I bought the 10" because in my reading, I saw somewhere that the 10" is firmer than the 12"." —DogsRGreat

    Price: $177.30+ Sizes: twin, full, queen, and king

    Thickness: 10-inch

    Try it with this box spring for $85.68+ (available in sizes twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, and California king) and 10-inch metal platform frame for $132.52+ (available in sizes twin, full, queen, and king). Box spring not required, but reviews say it's OK to use if you prefer one.

    13. This breezy foam mattress encased in a washable cover.

    amzn.to, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I went with this because it had the height needed for heavier people, (my husband is 220 lbs.), and the cooling design. It is still slightly warmer than our old mattress, but it's not uncomfortable like other foam mattresses I have slept on. I do have it on a tall metal frame with 4-inch slats and it works well. We have had it for about six months and it doesn't have any sag or change since we bought it. I feel great when I wake up and sleep more soundly. I also do not wake up when my husband gets up during the night because it is silent and has low motion transfer. We tried several memory-foam beds in the store that were 10x the price and this is just as good." —swef

    Price: $319+ Sizes: twin XL, full, full XL, queen, king, California king, and split calking

    Thickness: 12-inch

    Try it with this faux-leather upholstered platform bed frame for $149.99+ (available in twin, full, queen, and king). No box spring required.

    14. This firm-feel foam model with open-cell construction that means the memory foam takes less of a beating — or rolling.

    amzn.to

    Promising review: "I have a 15-year-old son who kept complaining about his old mattress, saying he couldn't sleep on it. He was having all kinds of back pain and, just in general, growing pains. I ordered this mattress. It came early, big plus. My son is now sleeping through the night and not complaining. He loves it." —ella

    Price: $108.99+ Sizes: twin, twin XL, full, full XL, and queen

    Thickness: 6-inch

    Try it with this rustic wood platform frame for $159.99+ (available in sizes twin, full, queen, and king). No box spring required.

    15. This pocket-spring mattress for folks who don't wanna mess with a good thing, but love a total steal.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I don't even understand how an $85 mattress can be this comfortable, but somehow it is. I have a crappy back and have woken up with less pain than with my Beautyrest Black mattress. I bought this as a temporary mattress because I'm living out of state for six months. It doesn't need a topper. As someone that prefers a soft mattress, but needs good support, this is perfect. Given the price and quality, it's probably made with witchcraft and blood of the innocent. I'm okay with that." —En_Gris

    Price: $89.33 Sizes: twin

    Thickness: 8-inch

    Try it with this box spring for $79.16+ (available in thicknesses 4-inch and 8-inch, and sizes twin, full, queen, and king) and modern metal bed frame for $79+ (available in twin, full, queen, and king).
