There is seemingly limitless information on the Internet about mattresses that can in turn end up being contradictory and cause confusion. Don’t let marketing language and technical jargon distract you – every type of mattress out there offers unique benefits that you should ultimately determine if they are right for you on your own. But in the meantime, here is an easy to read breakdown of the types of mattresses out there and why they might work for you.

Innerspring Mattresses

What’s inside: An innerspring mattress features a network of high quality coils that have been improved and perfected over the course of a century and offers a variety of firmness according to your preference. These are among the most common mattresses on the market and the sleep surface that the majority of people are familiar with.

Who it’s for: People who love sleeping on innerspring and feel no need for a change. Sleepers who like a range of sleep surface options as well as reliable name brands to choose from like Sealy, Serta, Simmons and King Koil.

Who it’s not for: People who are chronic toss and turners won’t get the most out of an innerspring mattress. Also look for other options if you have never gotten a good night’s rest from one.

Memory Foam Mattresses

What’s inside: Minuscule air bubbles within a NASA developed foam that allows the mattress to conform to the shape, weight and body heat of a sleeper. This is one of the most advanced materials on the market that also provides no motion transfer (famous for the ‘wine glass’ test we see in all those commercials). Top memory foam mattress brands include Tempurpedic

Who it’s for: Sleepers who desire a surface that literally adjusts and fits their shape and also for those who enjoy the feeling of sinking into a mattress.

Who it’s not for: Sleepers who like to change their positions throughout the night and don’t like to be confined to one position. People who tend to get excessively hot while sleeping.

Latex Mattresses

What’s inside: Tiny air bubbles, much like memory foam, but within a compound of natural latex rubber, synthetic latex or a blend of both. Durable latex provides the support while the air bubbles allow for pliability. Natural latex is the most desirable for its 100% natural, hypoallergenic and anti-microbial properties. Sealy, Simmons and Tranquility Mattress are popular latex mattress brands.

Who it’s for: Sleepers who enjoy a conforming sleep surface that is more breathable and allows for changing positions throughout the night. Eco-friendly buyers like how natural latex is entirely plant-derived and biodegradable.

Who it’s not for: Sleepers who need a greater level of conformity or want to stay in one position throughout the night.

Air Beds

What’s inside: A network of air chambers that can be filled up to a sleeper’s desired firmness via a digitally controlled air pump. Usually these mattresses offer separate flexibility on both sides of the mattress so that two different sleepers can adjust each side to their needs. Manufacturers include Select Comfort.

Who it’s for: Sleepers who need complete control over their sleep surface will enjoy air beds, as well as couples with individual sleeping needs.

Who it’s not for: Those who are not keen on having to use the remote control to find their ideal firmness and would also worry about potential air leakage.
