Top 10 Best Mattress Reviews of 2017


Top 10 Best Mattress Reviews of 2017

What are the best mattresses out there today?  Here at Memory Foam Talk, we have reviewed almost 50 of the most popular mattresses on the market today and feel like we have a pretty good idea of which ones are the best out of all those we have slept on.  There isn’t one best mattress for everyone, but there is one that is right for each person.

There are so many choices on the market these days to choose from, from in-store brands like Sealy, Simmons, Tempur Pedic, and more, to popular online mattresses like Casper, Loom and Leaf, Leesa, and others.

In this guide, we’re focusing on what we feel are the best mattresses that are on the market today, as the new year gets started.

This isn’t an exhaustive list of all the great mattresses out there, it is our Top 10 Best Mattress Reviews for 2017.

These are mattresses we have slept on personally and reviewed this year, and out of all the ones we have slept on (see our complete list of Mattress Reviews for all the ones we have tested), these are the ones we feel are the best.

Who makes the Top 10 Best Mattress Review list of 2017?

There are many factors that go into making the decision on what the best mattress is for someone. In many ways, this is pretty subjective and can involve a lot of different criteria.

We don’t feel there is any one mattress that is perfect for all sleepers, so this Top 10 Best Mattress Review list has all different types depending on your needs or preference

Here at Memory Foam Talk, we evaluate mattresses on quite a few criteria, such as firmness/support, comfort, value, sleeping hot, motion transfer, and other factors.

We test mattresses as a couple, so we know how things feel in the real world with two people sharing a bed, moving around at night, etc..

Each of these mattresses below we feel are the best out of the over 50 mattresses we have tested. They are from established (relatively established, given the online industry is new) and new companies.

These mattresses are the best in their given category and represent many different mattress types: memory foam, latex, latex hybrids, innerspring hybrids, and customizable mattresses for the best individual comfort.

We present a summary table below, then detailed descriptions of each mattress to follow.. with links to reviews, mattress discount codes if available, and more.

Loom & Leaf

  Price: $1099

  Rating: 97%

 Feel: Medium, Firm

The Loom and Leaf mattress is our highest rated mattress on our list for many reasons.  This 12″ thick mattress is made up of 5 different layers of high quality foams and other materials including medical grade cooling gel in the comfort layer.

The mattress comes in a Relaxed Firm model as well as a Firm version which both provide comfort and excellent support for the spine and body.

The Loom & Leaf is one of the best mattresses out there today due to the exceptional comfort and support, as well as the classic memory foam feel of hugging and contouring the body during sleep.

Loom and Leaf, Queen size

Loom and Leaf, Queen size

The Loom and Leaf doesn’t make you feel like you are sinking into foam like other mattresses, however, which is something that other lower quality mattresses in this price range can’t promise.

One big difference of the Loom and Leaf, is that it doesn’t ship compressed in a box like most online mattresses on the market these days.  This allows for the use of premium materials that don’t need to be compressed down.

At $1099 for a Queen, the quality and comfort rival much more expensive brands such as Tempur Pedic.

Nectar Sleep

  Price: $695

  Rating: 96%

 Feel: Medium Firm

The Nectar Sleep is a close second behind Loom and Leaf as one of the best mattresses of the new year.

This 11″ thick mattress is made up of 4 different layers of high quality foams and other materials including medical grade cooling gel and very luxurious materials in the top cover including Tencel.

The mattress comes in a Medium Firm universal comfort model, which provides the firmness and support in the lower layers with a very soft and luxurious top comfort layer that uses very premium materials.

Nectar mattress review

Nectar corner view

Nectar has been on the market for over a year, and has gotten quite a bit of press in major publications for its very high quality mattress that rivals much more expensive brands at a fraction of the cost.

The Nectar provides excellent support in all sleeping positions, and as stated – the level of craftsmanship and quality make for a very comfortable sleeping environment

One of the great differences with Nectar Sleep is their commitment to their product and customer. They offer a 365-night sleep trial and “Forever Warranty” for the life of the bed. Something other competing companies just can’t beat.

At $795 ($695 with our $100 MFT100 coupon), the level of quality and comfort are extremely hard to top for a mattress of this quality and easily is our #2 best mattress.


  Price: $1899

  Rating: 95%

 Feel: Medium, Firm

The Zenhaven mattress is our top pick for 100% latex mattresses on the market today, due to the very high quality materials used in the mattress. Zenhaven uses 100% Talalay latex in their mattress, which is the highest quality latex on the market.

Zenhaven is from the Saatva company, which also makes our #1 pick on the Best Mattress of 2017 list, Loom and Leaf, so they know a thing or two about making a great mattress.  The Zenhaven uses the same high quality materials and craftsman ship as Loom and Leaf and Saatva, but at a fraction of the price of competing 100% Latex mattresses.

A unique feature of the Zenhaven is its ability to be flipped over and offer two different firmness options, a Luxury Plush (4-5 out of 10 on firmness scale), and a Gentle Firm (7-8 on firmness scale).

The Zenhaven is a very comfortable and quality mattress especially given the very high-end materials and craftsmanship.   At $1899 for a queen size, this luxury mattress is a a fraction of what similar high end latex mattresses go for and one of the best latex mattresses on the market today.


  Price: $750

 Feel: Medium Firm

The GhostBed is our favorite latex hybrid mattress, and one of the best values on the market today. At a nice thick 11″ high, the GhostBed provides great support for all sleeper types and weights and is also very good for couples sharing a bed.

The GhostBed is a memory foam and latex foam hybrid, so it provides the best of both worlds with the bounce and resiliency of latex with the body contour and hug of memory foam.

The GhostBed is a very good alternative to brands such as Casper, and has been one of our top picks for best mattress of the year for its comfort, value, and support.

The GhostBed is on the Medium Firm end of the firmness spectrum, coming in around a 7 (out of 10 on the firmness scale).  Initially it feels firm, but softens up over time and molds to your body. The exterior of the GhostBed is especially nice and offers a textured almost massage-like feel to the mattress.

GhostBed also has great pillows as well and an affordable foundation that matches the mattress.   At $750 (less $50 off with our coupon), the quality and value are hard to beat.

Nest Bedding Alexander Signature

  Price: $1199

  Rating: 95%

 Feel: Soft, Medium, Firm

Nest Bedding is one of our favorite companies, and for good reason. They have a wide selection of high quality mattresses, pillows, bedding, and other sleep products and all of them are quite good.

The Alexander Signature Series is Nest Bedding’s most popular memory foam mattress, and is approximately 13″ high with multiple layers of memory foam, gel foam, and SmartFlow Air Flow foam.

The Alexander comes in 3 firmness options, Soft, Medium, and Firm, and is suitable for all sleeping preferences and very supportive for all sleeping styles.


Nest Bedding Alexander Signature Select

The materials and quality design of the Nest Bedding Alexander Signature mattress, as well as the support and overall comfort,  all contribute to this bed being one of the best mattresses on the market today.

We like all of Nest Bedding’s products as mentioned, and the Alexander Signature really does a great job at providing an excellent mattress at a very good price as well.


  Price: $800

  Rating: 95%

 Feel: Medium

The Lull mattress is a 10″ all foam mattress that is very popular and very comfortable as well. The Lull sleeps cool and is a great choice for couples with minimal motion transfer and minimal sinkage for heavier sleepers.

The Lull is another one of the best memory foam mattresses we have reviewed that appeals to all sleepers.  It provides exceptional comfort and support, as well as the classic memory foam feel of hugging and contouring the body during sleep.


Lull mattress, queen size

The Lull comes in at a 5/6 out of 10 on the firmness scale, more on the soft/medium side but very comfortable and supportive for all sleeper types.

At $800 (less our $50 discount), the Lull is a great mattress at a great price and one of the best mattresses of 2017 for sure.


  Price: $1099

  Rating: 94%

 Feel: Soft, Medium, Firm

The Luxi is one of the more innovative mattresses on the market today, and easily makes our Top 10 Best Reviewed Mattress of 2017 list due to its technological advances and customizable comfort.

The Luxi has a “split-it, flip-it” customizable configuration, which essentially makes it 9 mattresses in 1. By rearranging the various layers, the Luxi can be soft, medium, and firm – with each side independent.


Luxi Mattress, Queen size

Luxi is our favorite mattress for couples for this reason, as it isolates motion between sleeping partners as well as reduces heat retention between sleepers.

Luxi is committed to making sure their customers are happy, and to that end employs a team of sleep experts who will work with you to make sure the mattress meets your needs, even sending out new layers to augment the feel of the mattress.

The Luxi is our favorite mattress for couples, and at $1099 (less $125 with our discount), it is a great mattress for the flexibility and price offered.


  Price: $900

  Rating: 94%

 Feel: Customizable

The Helix mattress is known for their customization of the mattress based on an online questionnaire that takes into consideration sleeper weight, preference, temperature, and other factors to design the right mattress for each customer.

The Helix can be customized on each side for each individual sleeper, which makes it ideal for couples that have different firmness requirements and sleep preferences.

Available as a split configuration where each side is configured and fused together, or blended to get the best of all worlds, the Helix aims to get the right mattress for each sleeper.

The Helix is a 10″ latex hybrid that uses latex foam, memory foam, and latex micro coil construction to provide a variable firmness mattress based on individual preference.

For the degree of customization and individual side control, we like the Helix for couples and it is another of our best mattress picks for this reason. At $900 (less $50 with our coupon), it is a great deal.

Bear Mattress

  Price: $850

  Rating: 93%

 Feel: Medium

The Bear Mattress is known as a performance mattress, in that it is created and targeted to those that live an active lifestyle by the use of materials in its construction including a Celliant cover – which is known to have many health benefits.

The Bear is around a 7 out of 10 on the firmness scale, but adapts to the sleeper over time and conforms to sleeper weight and provides that classic memory foam hug and contour without feeling trapped in foam like some all foam mattresses.

The Bear Mattress sleeps very cool due to the graphite infused foam top layer as well as the Celliant cover and is good for people that get hot at night at times.

At $850 for a queen mattress (less $50 discount), the Bear is a great value for the money given the technology present in this mattress.


  Price: $1349

  Rating: 93%

 Feel: Soft, Medium, Firm

Rounding out our top 10 list is the all latex Spindle mattress, a 100% natural latex mattress that is one of our favorite all-latex mattresses and one of the best values as well.

The Spindle is a very high quality latex bed made with 100% natural Dunlop latex that enables you to configure it based on whatever firmness settings you prefer.

We like the Spindle for its support for heavier sleepers, great motion isolation, and premium materials, and for the fact that is is one of the few 100% latex mattresses on the market at such a great price.

For those that like the feel of an all-latex mattress, the Spindle really can’t be beat.

The Spindle mattress comes with 3 different layers of latex that you can configure yourself to get the right level of firmness you desire.  The feel is more of a “sleeping on” instead of “sleeping in” feeling, and the Spindle latex mattress provides superb support and a cool sleep during the night for all sleeping styles.

The Spindle ships in separate boxes that you assemble yourself, and at $1349 for a queen (less our 5% discount), the price can’t be beat.
