The firm hybrid support of this mattress is balanced by soft upper layers, including a quilted Euro top and a gel contour layer, that cradle the sleeper without feeling heavy or hot. It’s a very well-made mattress that should perform well for years.
Softness seekers may still find this mattress too bouncy and firm.
Rated for all sleeper types, the Puffy is noted for keeping the spine aligned no matter what position you are in. Soft top layer helps reduce or eliminate pressure points. Can be used with any bed platform or frame, and you have a 101-night trial option.
Temperature-neutral, which may feel less comfortable for some sleepers.
Though it’s rated as medium-firm, Ghostbed’s original mattress offers soft cushioning after a bit of a break-in period. Good warranty support. Expands quickly after unboxing with very little chemical smell.
Sleepers may find it uncomfortably firm at first.
A plushy soft memory foam mattress that still provides good underlying support. Sleepers sink right into the cozy upper layer of this mattress. Unrolls and inflates reasonably quickly after arrival. Durable outer cover repels small water spills.
Lightweight sleepers may find this mattress too hard at first, but it will conform better with regular use.
A comfortable memory foam mattress with a cooling gel layer that disperses body heat. Soft-cushioning top layer wraps shoulders and hips in comfort, while firm base layer provides underlying support.
Heavyweight sleepers may not find this mattress supportive enough.
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.
