Mattress Comparisons

Spend a few minutes searching for a new bed on the Internet and you’ll likely notice one thing: there are so many different types of mattresses on the market! While this can make for a dynamic shopping experience, it can also lead to frustration, confusion, and straight up I-have-no-idea-what-I-want-sion.

That’s why we at Sleepopolis not only review mattresses, but also size them up side-by-side. Think of this page like a buffet; you can sample a bunch of brands at the same time and then come back for a second helping of the one that really sparked your interest.

To get started, browse through some of our most popular comparisons below.

It’s incredibly difficult to compare mattresses online, plain and simple. To do so would require hours of back and forth toggling between websites, reading user comments, creating spreadsheets, and squinting at product images that may or may not even be real to life.

So, why not let us do the heavy lifting for you? Our comparisons dive into all the relevant specs, nimbly sussing out the similarities and differences between the most popular beds on the market as we pit them against one another. To ensure we’re covering all our bases, every bed comparison aims to answer the following questions:

  • Material – What are these two mattresses made of? How do the materials affect their overall feels? Is one bed going to sleep cooler than the other, are the materials used going to lead to more or less sinkage than other mattresses on the market?
  • Feel – Is one bed firmer than the other, is it more plush, or are they pretty much the same? Is someone more likely to feel as though they’re sleeping “in” these beds or “on top” of them?
  • Sleeper – Is one of these beds better for side sleepers? What about back sleepers, stomach sleepers, or those who like to change positions? Are either of these mattresses designed with heavier folks, couples, or kids in mind?

We also make sure to take a look at price differences, company philosophies, shipping fees, trial periods, warranties, and other nitty gritty details to make sure we’re delivering you comparisons that are thorough and comprehensive.

  1. Hi Logan,

    Hoping you can help. We recently got the Casper Hybrid, which has worked well for my husband but leaves me with aching lower back pain every morning. I have the feeling of the mattress not filling in below my lumbar spine. This has not improved for over a month now. My back pain is better if I sleep on a softer mattress, but this causes pain for my husband! Is there a mattress you recommend that would be better suited for both our needs? Or are we resigned to a Sleep Number or separate mattresses? We are both combo side and back sleepers and are similar in weight (140-160 lb).


    • If you’re looking for a hybrid I would say take a look at the Bear Hybrid. It’s got a similar bounce to the Casper Hybrid, roughly the same firmness in my opinion but uses more memory foam up top for the contouring you’re looking for

  2. Have you ever compared the Casper Hybrid and Bear Hybrid? I’m having the hardest time choosing between them. I’m average weight, and I sleep mostly on my side during the night, but occasionally end up on my back.

    • We haven’t yet but that is a great comparison, I’ll do a video of that soon! With your needs I’d honestly say they’d both work pretty well, maybe the Bear Hybrid sleeps a little cooler while the Casper Hybrid has a little more support. Really close call though.

  3. Hi,

    We are looking for natural/organic type mattress that sleeps cool. We have a memory foam now and are leaning toward a latex. We looked at avocado green but I think they are too firm. Want something soft. Have shoulder and neck pain and am side sleeper. Watched your reviews for the plush bed botanical bliss and Brentwood home cedar. Liked both but thought the Brentwood seemed better quality. Can you offer some guidance or maybe another matress?

    Love your reviews!
    Thanks so much

    • One thing to note about the Avocado Green is that there is a pillowtop version available that will provide a softer feel. But if it is coming down to PlushBed vs Brentwood Cedar I would lean toward the Cedar. The PlushBed does allow you to change the firmness up a bit but I think the hybrid build of the Cedar gives it just a slight leg up based on what you’re looking for.

  4. I am having a hard time picking between the Purple 3 and 4. I tend to sleep on my side but occasionally turn on my back for short periods. Which one would be best for me ?

    • I would say the Purple 3 would be the better choice for you. The 4 is great for side sleepers who need a ton of room to sink in, but the 3 is a bit more supportive for when you turn onto your back.
