What is the best mattress for your bed on the market today?  As we head into the end of 2017, that is a great question. With so many mattresses these days to choose from, it can be hard to make a decision on which mattress is the right one to purchase.

Here at Memory Foam Talk, we have reviewed over 75 of the most popular mattresses that have come out in the last few years 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 that suits 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 mattress brands like Sealy, Simmons, Tempur Pedic, and more, to popular online mattresses like Casper, Loom and Leaf, Nectar, Nest Bedding, Leesa, and others.

In this guide, we’re focusing on what we feel are the best mattresses that are on the market today, after sleeping on all of these and based on what mattress buying customers tell us as well.

This isn’t an exhaustive list of all the great mattresses out there, it is our pick of the Top 10 Mattresses that are our favorite and best-rated mattresses as we head into the end of the year.

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 best-rated mattresses and the ones we feel are the best mattresses on the market today.

Who makes the Top 10 Best Mattress Reviews 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 one perfect mattress that is perfect for all types of sleepers, so this list for 2017 has all different types depending on your needs or preference.  The best on the market isn’t necessarily the one that costs the most, it is the one that helps you get quality sleep.

How Do We Decide Our Mattress ratings?

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

We test 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 below we feel are the best out of the over 75 mattresses we have tested. They are from established (relatively established, given the online industry is new) and new companies.

We Picked the Best That are the Top Rated Mattresses in our Reviews

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.

Here are our Top 10 Bed Mattresses, Our Highest Rated Mattress Summary:

Nectar Sleep

Price: $695

Rating: 96%

Feel: Medium Firm

The Nectar Sleep has emerged one of the best mattresses of the new year, and our top pick as we head into the end of 2017 due to the exceptional value and unparalleled sleep trial and warranty the offer.

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.

Nectar corner view

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.  The Nectar quickly became one of our best rated mattresses and is very popular, and what we personally sleep on in between reviewing mattresses.

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 especially given the price.

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, and which makes them one of the best online mattress companies that has emerged as of late.

At $795 ($670 with our $125 MFT125 coupon), the level of quality and comfort are extremely hard to top for a mattress of this quality.

Loom Leaf

Price: $1099


Rating: 96%

Feel: Medium, Firm


The Loom and Leaf mattress is second 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 mattress 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.

best mattress overall in our best mattress reviews

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.  This is part of what makes it our best rated mattress overall, and our best rated memory foam mattress as well.

At $1099 for a Queen, the quality and comfort rival much more expensive mattress brands such as Tempur Pedic which can now no longer hold the title of ‘best foam mattress on the market”.

Layla Sleep

Price: $799

Rating: 95%

Feel: Medium, Firm

The Layla mattress is a very unique mattress, in that it allows you to choose from two different firmness options just by unzipping the cover and flipping over the mattress. In addition, Layla also uses copper technology in their mattress which helps keep it cool and provides other health benefits.

Layla recently made some changes to their mattress, including improving edge support and the internal layer design.  These changes helped Layla jump to the #3 spot on our Best Mattress of 2017 list, and is known for being one of the highest rated mattresses.

one of our top picks for best mattress from our best mattress reviews

Layla mattress

The Layla is a very comfortable mattress which sleeps cool due to the copper infused cover and ThermoGel technology.

A unique feature of the Layla is its ability to be flipped over and offer two different firmness options, a Medium (5-6 out of 10 on firmness scale), and a Firm (7-8 on firmness scale).

The Layla is a very quality mattress that is good for couples and those wanting a choice of firmness options.   At $799 for a queen size (after applying our exclusive Memory Foam $100 off coupon), this mattress is one of our highest rated mattresses we have reviewed with features that others costing much more simply don’t have.


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 for 2017 list, Loom and Leaf, so they know a thing or two about making a comfortable 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.

Zenhaven latex mattress, queen size

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.

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. It is one of the best rated memory foam mattresses and often on many top 10 mattresses lists.

Nest Bedding Alexander Signature Select

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.

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 and one of the best rated mattresses by many review sites.

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 – only $999 with our $200 off coupon

Avocado Green Mattress

Price: $1399

Rating: 95%

Feel: Medium

The Avocado mattress is a new luxury latex and coil hybrid mattress that uses eco-friendly and green materials in its construction.  The Avocado Green mattress is handcrafted in the USA without petroleum-based polyurethane foam, without toxic flame retardants, without dangerous pesticides, and without risk from volatile chemicals and gasses.

The Avocado is one of the best natural latex hybrid mattresses that appeals to all sleepers.  It provides exceptional comfort and support, with bounce and responsiveness from the latex and innerspring hybrid construction. It is our highest rated hybrid mattress for good reason.

Avocado mattress corner view

The Avocado is an 11″ mattress which comes in at a 6 out of 10 on the firmness scale, more on the soft/medium side but very comfortable and supportive for all sleeper types.  The bounce and responsiveness makes the mattress great for couples without causing too much movement.

At $1399  the Avocado is a little more expensive than most bed in a box mattresses, but this is due to the high quality, organic materials and construction used in the mattress.  The Avocado is clearly one of the best mattresses on the market and one of the best hybrid mattresses as well.


Price: $749


Rating: 94%

Feel: Medium, Firm

The Nolah mattress is a unique mattress in that it delivers the benefits of memory foam without the use of foam. Nolah created their own proprietary foam, Nolah Air Foam, which sleeps cooler than memory foam and is more durable than latex.

The mattress comes in a universal comfort model which we rate as a 6-7 on the firmness scale (10 being firmest), and it provides good support as well as great comfort for all sleeping styles.

The Nolah is an excellent mattress and one of our favorites due to it having the comfort and feel of memory foam without the heat and sinkage traditional memory foam often has.

The Nolah also does something different to give back to the environment, by giving you a choice of a wildlife animal to adopt. You can choose from a variety of endangered animals and they donate a contribution to the Defenders of Wildlife, who seek to protect endangered animals. You actually receive a adoption certificate for your animal as well!

At $749 for a Queen (after applying our $100 off MFTALK coupon) , the Nolah is a great alternative to memory foam with all the benefits and none of the problems often associated with memory foam.

Zotto Sleep

Price: $875

Rating: 94%

Feel: Medium

The Zotto is one of our favorite mattresses we have reviewed at Memory Foam Talk, and easily makes our Top Mattress list of 2017 due to its exceptional comfort, support, and cool sleeping all memory foam construction.

The Zotto has the classic memory foam feel with great body hug and sinkage without causing that “trapped in foam” sensation. In addition, their use of ThermaPhase materials and CoolFlow foam do an excellent job at preventing heat buildup during the night which is especially important for couples sharing a mattress.

the best mattress for comfort and one of our best mattress reviews, the Zotto

Zotto mattress, queen size

The Zotto is one of our favorite mattresses for couples, as it isolates motion between sleeping partners as well as reduces heat retention between sleepers.  In addition, it is a very comfortable bed and one we sleep on in between reviewing other beds.

The Zotto has a plush top layer, and feels around a 5/6 out of 10 on the firmness scale, but provides excellent support without causing sinkage and ensuring great support for all sleeper weights and sleeping styles.

At $875 for a queen  (less $75 with our discount), it is a great mattress for the money and a top rated mattress on our site and one of the best rated memory foam mattress choices as well.


Price: $950

Rating: 94%


The Puffy mattress is a new comfortable mattress that recently came onto the market offering a 10″ mattress using their proprietary Cooling Cloud gel infused memory foam that sleeps cool.

We usually aren’t big fans of 2 layer 10″ mattresses with all the recent mattresses that offer thicker, multi-layer construction, but the Puffy does a good job at creating a soft, comfortable sleeping surface that sleeps cool as mentioned above.


puffy mattress review

Puffy Mattress, queen size

The Puffy feels like around a 5/6 or so on the firmness spectrum (10 being firmest), with the top comfort layer providing comfort and cooling while the underlying foam foundation layer provides overall support.

The Puffy is a newer company and offers the standard 101 night sleep trial but a lifetime warranty,  with a queen selling for $950 after saving $200 clicking on our link below.


Price: $800

Rating: 94%

Medium – Firm

The Lull mattress is a 10″ 3-layer foam mattress that has been one of our favorite memory foam mattresses among the 10″ foam mattresses we have tested.

The Lull uses a layer of gel-infused memory foam that helps provide cooling for the mattress as well as comfort and combined with the transitional memory foam layer below, provides good body contour and hug.  The underlying foundation layer provides the support for the mattress which does a good job at supporting heavier sleepers as well as the combined weight of couples.

The Lull is a universal comfort mattress that comes in at a 5/6 out of 10 (10 being firmest) on the comfort scale depending on sleeper weight. They 3-layer construction sleeps cool while providing good support and comfort while also minimizing motion transfer which is important for couples sharing a bed.


At $800 for a queen (you can save $50 by clicking our link below) the Lull is a great value for a very good memory foam mattress that is one of the more popular beds on the market today.
