1. A green tea-infused memory foam mattress over 13k people swear by, as will you.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I bought this for my husband's king size bed to replace a 15-year-old Posturpedic. He said it feels just as good, for far less money than the old set. We didn't use a box spring, but put it right on a flat plywood base. He likes it low like that, and it feels safer. We have had this for a while, and I finally decided to try it out last night to see if its as good as he said. Oh yes! My back feels much better, and I could tell before falling asleep it supports my back perfectly. Now I want one just like it for myself." –Vintage Princess

2. An eco-friendly foam mattress for anyone who is a back sleeper, or prefers a firmer slumber.

amazon.com

This was the first memory foam mattress I tried (12" full) years ago, and it's still going strong in a guest room. IMO it is v comfy for side-sleepers too.

Promising review: "I decided to buy this mattress – it seemed to be a good price and at 12-inches, I figured the memory foam would be more than enough. It took awhile for the mattress to fully decompress, over a day, so please ignore the reviews that say it doesn’t decompress properly! You just have to be patient. These beds are shipped and stored in a tight box for months, it’s not going to be inflate right away, especially if you get an older unit. My girlfriend who’s a side-sleeper said it was too hard for her, but as a back-sleeper who used to sleep on mats when I was back-packing Europe, I actually enjoyed the density of this mattress. If you’re a back-sleeper looking for a a cheap sleep, this mattress might be for you." –Marcus Rothkow

Get it from Amazon for $79.90+ (available in five sizes, 6", 8", 10" or 12" inch thickness).

3. A spring mattress with a ventilated cooling foam top that just may help curb aches and pains.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I looked at several low-priced mattresses, since my funds are limited, and saw this one. It said it has coil springs for good support, is still soft, AND said it was a good mattress for people with back issues. It arrived three days after I ordered it which impressed me. I followed the directions, and put it on my platform bed, cut the plastic, and watched it expand to queen size. It feels great! I have no pain on pressure points like my elbows or hips, and I sleep very well. It has good support, but is soft and comfortable. You don't sink into it like quicksand, either. I am very happy with this mattress, and very surprised at the quality of it (for the low price). Also, it is the complete queen size, not an inch or so shorter like some other imports." –Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $92.99+ (available in four sizes, 10" thickness).

Pair it with this metal and wood platform frame from Amazon for $169.99+ (available in four sizes).

4. A foam mattress to conform to all sleepers, whether you're in need of firm or soft.

wayfair.com

Promising review: "My husband and I spent two years looking for mattresses, and the last thing we thought we would ever do is impulse buy a mattress online without even laying on it. Well, I've never been so happy I took the leap! No more tossing and turning, no more back pain or stiffness. I think he even snores less! I can't feel him get up in the mornings, and most importantly we both get what we need – I like a firm mattress, and he likes a soft one. This bed forms to you. It will give you what you need and never sags, just bounces right back in to place. It was delivered fast and took minutes to open and fully unfold. No chemical smells, no hassle, just a great night sleep." –Tamira

Get it from Wayfair for $252.99 (available in four sizes, 10" thickness).

5. A cloud-like foam mattress so you can enjoy a luxurious slumber without the high price tag.

amazon.com

Memory foam forever.

Promising review: "We bought this in a king size. Omg let me tell you it's VERY comfortable, and very close to the $2,000–$4,000 Temperedic bed mattresses (trust me, right before buying this mattress, we visited a bed store and laid on those over-priced foam Temperpedic beds)! This is pretty darn close, and less than half the price. Such a steal. It's already almost 12 inches, and we just received it a couple of days ago. My husband's back already feels much better, highly recommend!" –Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $149+ (available in four sizes, 8", 10", and 12" thickness).

7. A hybrid innerspring and gel foam mattress to immerse yourself in the best of both worlds.

hayneedle.com

Promising review: "Did some research into foam mattresses, and had the pleasure of sleeping on one at a hotel during some travels. We decided to give this hybrid a try, as the all foam styles were just a little to soft and I tended to get stuck in the impression. Well this one is a great find! Very firm, but the foam makes it so comfortable. We did not experience any unpleasant fumes, it expanded to full size within an hour or so, and we slept on it the very night we received it. Highly recommend it!" –Outnkaty

Get it from Hayneedle for $234+ (available in five sizes, 11" thickness).

8. An innerspring mattress that doesn't need a box spring for anyone who wants a no-frills (but still comfortable) sleep.

overstock.com

Promising review: "I did a lot of research before deciding to buy this mattress. I'm on a budget, but I wanted something nice and comfortable for my son's bedroom. I didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars investing in a mattress set with a box spring. Mission accomplished with this innerspring mattress! It's comfy, and gets the job done with my son's new platform bed. Not only does he have a great mattress, I've saved hundreds of dollars by not going the traditional mattress set route." –Songea S.

Get it from Overstock for $165.49 (full, 8" thickness).

Pair it with this wooden platform frame from Amazon for $219.99 (full).

9. A plush mattress with independently encased coils and a pillow top you'll love.

amazon.com

Just looking at this bed makes me sleepy.

Promising review: "I've had this mattress for almost a month and after the initial 48 hour decompression phase, it has been a real pleasure to sleep on. It comes rolled and vacuum sealed in a tube taped firmly. Once you puncture the inner bag that keeps the mattress compressed, the inflation happens just like a can of biscuits. It spreads out fairly quickly. At 13", it's worth checking into 'deep pocket' fitted sheets. Otherwise, if you're a restless sleeper like me, your standard fitted sheets are going to pop off the corners in the middle of the night. Target makes a great inexpensive deep pocket fitted sheet." –Echokitten

Get it from Amazon for $249+ (available in two sizes, 13" thickness).

Try it with this white metal platform frame from Amazon for $64.99+ (available in four sizes).

Sounds like this bed is the perfect balance of soft/firm.

Promising review: "After looking on Overstock, I picked this set and am greatly pleased! Just the right balance between firm and soft. Delivery company notified us in advance of delivery, including a call that they were in vicinity. They brought the set into the house, unwrapped everything and placed it on the bed.

amazon.com

TFW the dog is the only living being that loves being in bed more than you do.

Promising review: "Wow, I ordered this after looking at the reviews. I'm very impressed with this mattress, exactly 14", Cali king to a T. Firm enough for me with the back support I've needed, and soft enough for my husband. I opened it up on the bed, opened the packaging, and it flopped right open to the correct size. The pillows were not very firm or fluffy, but I didn't expect much out of those. Our pups love their new pillows. The smell is to be expected for a new memory foam mattress, don't let that deter you. It was gone by 9 p.m., and I opened it up at 3 p.m. I am absolutely thrilled, as is my husband, with this mattress. Great quality, shipping, price, comfort, support, space, and anything else you could hope for. Not too hot for a memory foam mattress. Definitely look into it!" –Amanda Larson

We rarely wake up with aches and pains from sleeping. We don’t have any of the problems we had with our previous mattress. This mattress is worth the money." –Human

Promising review: "We searched and compared bed sets online for the past week, and ultimately decided to go to our local Big Lots to 'try them out.' We knew we wanted a Serta brand, and knew Big Lots carries the brand, and happened upon this. Once you lay down on it, it's truly heavenly! We knew it was the one. It was on the pricier end, but no others compared. Last night was the first night sleeping on it, and I've not had that kind of sleep in a looong time! Woke up fully rested and with no back pain. It's very soft, but supportive. I highly recommend." –Robbie

19. A foam mattress that might convert skeptics over to the foam forever life.

walmart.com

Quiet + supportive = dream mattress.

Promising review: "This is my first time using a foam mattress but I'm impressed! I'm going from a spring mattress that every time you moved, the springs sounded like they were grinding together. With this mattress, it's SO quiet when you move. It's firm, but soft at the same time. NO MORE spring mattresses for me." –bobs409

21. A well-ventilated foam mattress with features worthy of fawning over – like a zipper washable cover, and brown suede on the corners.

amazon.com

Time for bed.

Promising review: "There are less expensive all-foam mattresses available, and I've had mixed luck with them over the years. But after my last one was a dud, I decided to spring for something a little nicer. This mattress is great; the gel seems to prevent it from capturing any heat, and the firmness is just right for me. In my opinion, it IS a firm mattress, but the pillowy top provides enough plush to support and distribute your weight and make it quite comfy. My last foam mattress was so hard that my arm would literally go numb if I slept on my side. This one is pretty accommodating of any sleeping position (I toss and turn a lot), and it works well for side-sleeping with a contoured foam pillow." –Cornelius Peffenfeffer

Get it from Amazon for $249+ (available in nine sizes).

Pair it with this platform frame with an upholstered headboard and wooden slat support from Amazon for $111+ (available in four sizes).
