Summary List Placement
The best mattress comes down to your personal preferences, but it should still offer an excellent balance of comfort, support, motion isolation, and breathability.
We tested dozens of mattresses over the years to find the best ones with lengthy risk-free home trials, are easy to unbox and set up, and performed well in our tests.
The Tempur-Pedic Cloud Mattress is our top foam mattress because it’s comfortable and has great airflow and motion isolation while the Leesa Hybrid Mattress is our top hybrid with its great edge support and motion dampening properties.

Your mattress is the most important part of your sleep set up, so it goes without saying that you need to have the right one. That’s why I tested more than a dozen mattresses for this guide, relied on the reviews of colleagues, and consulted with Michael Breus, Ph.D., a board-certified psychologist in clinical sleep disorders and also known as “The Sleep Doctor,” and Dr. Luis Javier Peña-Hernández, a lung and sleep health specialist at the Pulmonary, Critical Care & Sleep Disorders Institute of South Florida.
I’ve been testing mattresses for years now and developed objective tests to determine the best, and while that decision is ultimately subjective, I kept all of my testing and notes as objective as possible. Each mattress I tested was a queen because it’s the most popular size that people buy, and each mattress in our guide performed well in our tests, have long risk-free home trials, are easy to unbox and set up, and can be returned — although some brands will deduct certain fees.
For context, I’m a side and stomach sleeper and my wife is a back sleeper — between the two of us, we’ve got all the major sleeping styles covered. You can find the details of how we tested, models we tested at that missed our cut, and how to shop for a mattress at the end of our guide.
