Mattresses


Shopping for a mattress used to be so simple. You’d go to a mattress store, try out a few random mattresses, and buy the one that you could tolerate.

Times have definitely changed.

The advent of “mattress-in-a-box” online-only companies like Saatva, Dreamcloud, and others has opened up a world of choice for the average consumer. Whether you prefer mattresses made out of traditional innerspring coils, waterbeds, or memory foam; you can get it delivered right to your doorstep.

In this section, we’ll help you decide which type of mattress is best for you. Your age, sleep environment, sleeping position (i.e. side, back, stomach), sleep disorders, and personal preferences are all factors that go into deciding which mattress you should choose.

In this section you can find “best-of” lists for any type of mattress, individual product reviews, guides, and information about mattresses. If you can sleep on it, we’ll review it.

Mattress Guides and Must-Have Info

Mattresses for every type of sleeper

We all have different preferences when it comes to what type of mattress we’re looking for. Your sleeping position, budget, or the pain in your neck that you feel every time you wake up all factor into your buying decision.

Here at Sleepline we’re committed to giving you the information you need to buy the bed that will give you that perfect night of sleep that you need to feel refreshed and well-rested. To help your search, we organized our mattress reviews based on who you are and what you require out of your next mattress.

Which type of mattress is best for you?

Some people prefer a firm mattress while others like to “sink in” to a soft mattress. You might need contouring of memory foam or the spinal support that you’ll get with an innerspring. You might prefer to put your bed on top of a box spring, a platform, or directly on the floor. Each of those options requires a different type of mattress.

Whether you already know exactly what you’re looking for or you’re still checking out your options, our guides and best-of lists will help you make your decision.

Individual mattress reviews

We test and review products from all of the leading mattress companies. If you’ve already narrowed down your search to a specific product, then our reviews will give you the information you need to decide if it’s actually the right bed for you.

Companies like Puffy, CouchBed, and others are some of the most popular mail-order mattress companies. We break down the pros and cons of each, letting you know if they cater to your sleeping style.

Why spend your hard-earned money without learning everything you can about the product first?

Guides and education

Rather than putting all of our focus on product reviews and comparisons, we also spend a considerable amount of time researching mattresses on a conceptual basis. 

We have guides about everything you need to know about how your bed affects your health and well being. 

Do you suspect that your mattress might not be giving you the high-quality, refreshing sleep that you need? Our educational content will help you understand why. 

We cover everything from fun facts about the history of mattresses all the way up to the latest cutting-edge scientific research on how your bed affects the overall health of you and your family.
