Bottom Line
Pros
Cons

One reason that memory foam mattresses have become top sellers is that they’re comfortably soft. But one person’s soft mattress may feel like a brick to another person. That makes shopping for a soft mattress a bit difficult. One of the best approaches is to look for all-memory foam mattresses, which trade firmness for comfort. Thinner foam mattresses tend to be softer because they often have fewer support layers, so consider mattresses in the 8- to 10-inch thickness category. If you’re looking for a mattress that will last several years rather than several months, consider a hybrid mattress with innerspring coils on the lowest layer – keeping in mind that you cannot flip this type of mattress.
