Should have bought sooner!
"I bought the hybrid lux. I cannot say enough about it. I have tried a few mattresses on the internet and returned them all. This is the best mattress I’ve ever owned period. I have back, joint and leg problems. This is supportive yet soft on joints. I also got the adjustable base and use the vibration ever night to help me fall asleep. All I can say is - just try it.!!!!!"

I LOVE MY PUFFY
"It's been a long time since I slept this good. I am finished with the whole store shopping for a mattress. I was hesitant about purchasing online for a mattress and now I'm happy I did. I recommend this mattress over any store-bought mattress because I have tried them all, from high prices to average prices and been disappointed until now. Puffy RULES!"

Puffy Lux Performance

Recommended by Consumer Reports, the versatile construction of the Puffy Lux comes through with ‘Very Good' support for nearly every size and style of sleeper. We've tested the Lux in different sleep positions to determine the level of comfort. In addition to comfort, sleepers experience less back pain and feel relief with Puffy's body-adaptive Plush Dual Cloud Foam. We found the mattress to be extremely comfortable and provided great full-body support for side sleepers and back sleepers.

A luxury mattress without the markups, the Puffy Lux provides pressure relief, advanced cooling, and targeted support with Climate Comfort™ and Cooling Cloud™ foams. The perfect mix of soft and firm, the Puffy Lux's medium-plush feel truly worked numbers on nearly everyone that tried it.

Material

While a hybrid mattress isn't a new concept, Puffy added an ‘all-in-one' twist to it like no other. The Puffy Lux is made of 6 layers, from a hypoallergenic cover to gel-infused cooling foam layers and pocketed coils, it works on every level to improve your sleep experience.

The foams used in the mattress are CertiPUR-US® Certified, which means they're free of harmful chemicals.

Favorite Things About Puffy

- The cooling technology and optimized airflow wick away moisture and prevent night sweats. We would recommend this mattress to hot sleepers.
- The high quality of the mattress offers a soft bounce with body-conforming comfort.
- The bed is ideal for side, back, and combination sleepers.
- The happy medium that this bed reaches in firmness pleased almost all of us.
- We love that Puffy donates to multiple children's shelters and view it as an important part of their brand identity.

Trial, Warranty, and Shipping

Like most of the best bed-in-a-box brands, Puffy offers a 101-night sleep trial with all of its mattresses (though we don't think you'll need it!). If it's not a fit, you can return it for free and get a full refund. Additionally, a generous lifetime warranty builds a lot of trust between sleepers and Puffy. If there are any manufacturing or workmanship defects, Puffy will repair or replace the mattress for free.

Puffy Mattress Unboxing

Sleep on it the same night! Puffy mattresses are super easy and quick to unbox. This bed-in-a-box will need a few hours for decompressing and off-gassing but you won't need to air it out before sleeping on it.

Awards for Puffy Mattress

Besides being a product officially recommended by Consumer Reports, the Puffy Lux Hybrid has topped the list of best mattresses by People, CNET, Forbes, and numerous others. After running our tests, we agree with their assessments regarding full-body support, back pain relief, and cooler sleep.

Final Verdict on Puffy Lux

If you're searching for that top-of-the-line mattress without breaking the bank, there is no better option than the Puffy Lux. With its one-of-a-kind design, durable support, and exclusive contour layers, the Lux takes everything that is great about the traditional hybrid mattress to the next level.

I love the Purple
"I love the Purple Hybrid Premier 4! It's comfortable yet very supportive in any position I've tried. It's breathable, so I'm not hot tossing and turning around all the time. It also feels very durable and definitely meant to last. I don't think I could ever use another mattress now!"

Purple Premier 4 Performance

The Purple Hybrid Premier 4 is the latest model of the Purple mattresses. It performs exactly as you would expect a luxury mattress to perform, which is the bare minimum considering the near $3,000 price tag. This mattress provides enough support for light and average-weight sleepers, but may not support heavy-weight sleepers properly.

The thick layer of GelFlex™ Grid is a marvel when it comes to comfort and it does a good job at pressure relief, especially with back and shoulder pain.

Material

The Purple Premier 4 touts the signature purple GelFlex™ grid; well known for developing and passing the egg test. The Premier 4 features the thickest grid in all of the Puffy mattresses. Other layers include transition foam and responsive support coils.

Favorite Things about Purple Premier 4

- We loved the responsiveness and pressure relief of this mattress. If you suffer from pain, this is a great option.
- The gel foam top layer and stainless steel coils team up for a really comfortable experience.
- This mattress sleeps really cool, thanks to the breathable polymer grid.

Trial, Warranty, and Shipping

This mattress comes with a 100-night trial period. You can return it after testing it for a minimum of 21 days and before the end of the trial to receive a full refund. Paired with a limited 10-year warranty, you can expect that this mattress might be swapped for a much newer model later down the line. Free shipping & returns are also included.

Purple Premier 4 Unboxing

The high price tag does come with its perks, however. While the flagship Purple Mattress is manageable and easy to carry, the Premier 4 is the opposite. Luckily Purple provides a white-glove delivery and unboxing experience.

We recommend unboxing the Purple mattress and waiting at least 24 hours before sleeping on it for off-gassing and to avoid trapped odors from decompression. However, you don't need to decompress it in a separate room and move this impressively sized mattress yourself when it's ready.

Awards for Purple Premier 4

While the rewards have yet to pour in for the Purple Premier 4, it is no stranger to a great deal of top 10 lists across the internet and other publications.

Final Verdict on Purple Premier 4

While the Purple Premier 4 is an excellent mattress with a great mix of softness and firmness due to its GelFlex™ layer, it is not without its downsides. With its high price tag and limited warranty, it can be a little difficult to justify the price, even if the mattress is quite impressive.

Definitely A Legend
"I've been sleeping on a Leesa mattress for years. I bought one when I had some back issues and thought it couldn't be beat. Wrong."
image

Leesa Legend Performance

The aim of the Leesa Legend mattress appears to be to offer a higher quality of fast and easy bedding. With multiple memory foam layers and recycled materials, does the Legend meet those expectations? We found that the Leesa Legend does bring a lot to the table to warrant the luxury label and price tag.

The well-designed memory foam layers are ideal for light and average-weight sleepers in different positions but heavy sleepers may want to look for a firmer option. This mattress offers a decent level of comfort, especially to side sleepers with the lower zoned support layer. In terms of pressure relief, we would recommend this option for those with shoulder pain.

Material

The Leesa Legend mattress is a hybrid model sporting an interesting amount of thought put into the design of each foam layer. The eco-friendly mattress consists of recycled materials, organic cotton, and a merino wool cover. From hole punching the top foam layer for comfort to designing the lower levels to support side sleepers and other non-conventional sleepers, a lot is going on here.

Favorite Things about Leesa Legend

- The comfort is provided by the single-focus, multilayered foam portion of the mattress.
- Soft zoned support and pressure relief of the hips and shoulders for side sleepers with enough comfort that back sleepers will enjoy it as well.
- Firm enough that you don't feel trapped or swallowed by the mattress but still has a soft bounce and responsiveness.

Trial, Warranty, and Shipping

The Leesa Legend comes with a 100-day trial period and a limited 10-year warranty, which might seem like enough for the lifespan of a mattress for some - but it's a little disappointing when considering the price of this model. Leesa offers free and standard shipping with all of its mattresses.

Leesa Legend Unboxing

Like many other bed-in-a-box mattresses, the Leesa Legend requires 24 hours of a decompression period. Luckily, the familiar off-gassing smell dissipates much faster than other models that we have tested.

Awards for Leesa Legend

The Legend mattress from Leesa has received some well-earned awards for its support of side sleepers with the middle comfort zone.

Final Verdict about Leesa Legend

Overall the Leesa Legend does prove to be an extremely comfortable mattress for the side and back sleepers but we wouldn't recommend it for stomach sleepers. While we think that the price doesn't exactly match the quality, especially if you are a stomach sleeper, we do not believe you'll be disappointed if you try it out.

Nolah Evolution Performance

The Evolution mattress is Nolah's most popular mattress, the hybrid option utilizes their signature AirFoam™ and newly designed support coils to create a medium-soft mattress that still has a good bounce.

The Evolution proved to provide much-needed structure to softer mattresses. While it offers a lot of comfort for back sleepers, side sleepers will probably get the most out of this option from Nolah. The foam contours all the necessary pressure points, while the spring allows for the rare support that side sleepers often don't get with soft mattresses. This is ideal for lightweight sleepers looking for a medium-firm feel.

Material

Nolah's first hybrid mattress includes a graphite-infused version of their patented AirFoam™ and cooling ArcticTex™ fibers to improve breathability and sleep cool. The newly added support coils are intriguing as they provide added pressure relief, breathability, and support for the mattress's top layer.

Favorite Things about Nolah Evolution

- A great mix of softness and support, which isn't common among softer mattresses.
- We found the motion transfer to be exceptionally good for a spring base mattress, so antsy sleepers and couples will enjoy this.
- The side sleeping experience is decent with this mattress. With so many companies looking to find the perfect level of firmness, we like that Nolah is looking to perfect the soft approach.

Trial, Warranty, and Shipping

The Nolah Evolution comes with a lifetime warranty and an extended 120-night sleep trial with a money-back guarantee. It also comes with free shipping and returns.

Nolah Evolution Unboxing

Like most bed-in-a-box mattresses, there is a decompression and off-gassing period of one to two days. It is worth noting that one should get assistance when opening the bed as these are rather bulky mattresses.

Awards for Nolah Evolution

Nolah's AirFoam™ and pocketed coils are deserving of recognition. With awards from Forbes, Martha Stewart, and Good Housekeeping, there is a lot to back up their claims here.

Final Verdict about Nolah Evolution

We find the Nolah Evolution to be an excellent option for sleepers who need a softer bed and have been looking for support that those models often lack. However, if you're seeking a firm mattress, this isn't for you.

This is certainly a great soft mattress with unique support for side and back sleepers and a good amount of cooling and comfort.

"We are really enjoying our Bear Hybrid mattress. We went with a king and decided to purchase online because it would have been too difficult to try out various mattresses at the store with a colicky newborn in tow."

Bear Elite Performance

The Bear Elite performs more or less in a standard way. Upon further inspection, we found that the zoned polyfoam top-layer targets pressure relief in areas like the hips and shoulders. The luxury firm and extra firm options offer more support than the luxury plush. The zoned support provides much-needed contouring for side and off-side sleepers but did little to aid in comfort for back sleepers.

Material

The Elite Hybrid model from Bear offers a unique split design. The bottom half is a traditional firm support base with individually encased pocketed spring coils. This allows for both flexibility and structure. While the top half features zoned comfort foam and a lot of cooling technology like PCM fabric, Celliant fiber, and copper-infused memory foam.

Favorite Things about Bear Elite

- The cooling ability of the memory foam prevents sleepers from overheating.
- With zoned support, this bed is perfect for couples.
- The top memory foam layer is good enough for comfort, while the traditional firm base offers proper support.

Trial, Warranty, and Shipping

The Bear Elite comes with an extended 365-night trial so you can return the mattress within the year if you don't like it. The lifetime warranty is also an excellent addition as you'll want this pricier option to serve you well for years to come. Shipping is free to the contiguous U.S., except for Hawaii and Alaska.

Bear Elite Unboxing

Once the mattress is unboxed it will start to regain volume, but it may take 24 hours to fully decompress before you can sleep on it. On the bright side, it is certified to not give off any strong chemical scent - which is a much-welcomed addition.

Awards for Bear Elite

As this product is Bear's newest line, it has yet to receive any awards. We could see it picking up one or two awards for its cooling or side-sleeper support, but won't exactly shatter any records.

Final Verdict about Bear Elite

All in all, the Bear Elite Hybrid mattress is a very solid but perhaps expensive sleep option. The Bear Elite might be worth the plunge for side sleeping couples, but others might need to continue their search.

Helix Midnight Luxe Performance

The Helix Midnight Luxe is the most popular option in the Luxe line. It is recommended for side sleepers as it targets pressure points like the shoulders and hips due to its zoned lumbar support and pocketed coils. We were pleased with the responsiveness of the mattress and the way it reforms to meet new sleeping positions.

Material

The mattress consists of a high-density memory foam layer, a gel-infused Visco layer, and a polyfoam transition layer. It is topped with a TENCEL™ cover or pillow top that adds cushioning and coolness. The bottom half features pocketed coils and a foam base layer that adds stability and improves the mattress's edge support.

Favorite Things about Helix Midnight Luxe

- Quick responsiveness allows for combination sleepers to feel comfortable when switching positions.
- The extra pillow top layer can make or break the experience. Some of us loved it, while some of us couldn't get around it.
- Positive edge support for those who like to spread out while sleeping.

Trial, Warranty, and Shipping

Helix offers a 100-night sleep trial and a limited 10-year warranty, which is shorter than a lot of other bed-in-a-box companies. All mattresses are shipped for free via FedEx, which can take from 6 to 10 business days.

Helix Midnight Luxe Unboxing

The Midnight Luxe follows the bed-in-a-box pattern by needing at least 24 hours to decompress. But we recommend leaving it for an average of 3 days to off-gas as the trapped odors were stronger with this one than others. The mattress is also heavier than usual so you'll need assistance unboxing it and setting it up. A ventilated spare bedroom should be enough for this, but we wish we didn't need the process at all.

Awards for Helix Midnight Luxe

The Helix Midnight Luxe has earned Wired and CNET awards and received recognition from GQ.

Final Verdict about Helix Midnight Luxe

While the Midnight Luxe proves to be a good improvement over Helix's previous midnight models, it all comes down to how sleepers will adjust to the firmer pillow-top layer.
