A good mattress is an important part of maintaining spinal health. But finding a quality mattress can be a frustrating (and expensive) process riddled with trial-and-error.
Luckily, a team of researchers did the legwork for us, investigating which mattresses offer both support and comfort. They scoured online reviews, spoke to sleep experts and chiropractors, and even personally tested top contenders in creating their mattress guide: https://www.reviews.com/mattress/.
Since there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to mattresses, they recommend options for various preferences-
Saatva Loom & Leaf Mattress: the overwhelming favorite
BedInABox Silk Symphony Memory Foam Mattress: the most luxurious
Tuft & Needle Mattress: the best cheap mattress (I use this personally, see my review here.)
The Casper Mattress: the runner-up
Their mattress review guide even includes handy tips to ensure your mattress is only doing your spinal and general health favors:
- Try your new mattress for at least 30 nights before sealing the deal. You’ll want to look out for signs of neck and back pain and poor sleep quality.
- Keep it clean. You can sprinkle baking soda across the bare top and let it sit for at least 30 minutes to deodorize. When you vacuum up the baking soda, you’ll also remove dust mites and dead skin cells.
- Replace your mattress every five to ten years. Consumer Reports advises deep-cleaning it twice per year and rotating it every two months.
