Best Mattress

I asked my friend who is about 3 times my size to test out all of the mattresses that are built specifically for Big & Tall people.  After a few months he came back to me with surprising results and a clear winner.

Finding the Best Mattress For a Big and Tall Person

Rana you are small! What if I’m big, or tall, or have the body of a football player?

This is an issue that I have spent a good deal of time considering. But, how could I possibly answer this question without help? So, I enlisted the help of a friend of mine who is THREE TIMES my size.

At 6’8″ and 350 pounds he defines the

I set aside several mattresses that I thought could hold up to his weight, and he spent some time testing them. Then, I had our top mattresses for big and tall people sent to his house, so he could sleep test them.  Are you excited to see the results?

#1 DreamCloud Mattress

I must admit I was a bit shocked by this result at first.  DreamCloud is a well built thick luxurious mattress, but I wasn’t sure it would hold up to his weight, since they don’t really market it as a mattress for Big & Tall people.  Turns out it is firm enough for such a large person, in California King size of course!  

It is the thickest mattress that we have tested so far at a full 15″.  Comprised of 8 different layers, ranging from a tufted cashmere cover, various layers of foam, a natural latex layer, and the magic behind the support a 5 zoned foam encased pocketed coil system.  

It has taken a daily beating from our tester for over a year now.  So, we aren’t worried about there being any issues for Big & Tall folks.  

DreamCloud offers a full year trial period, so you have nothing to lose by giving it a try.

#2 Leesa Hybrid Mattress

With a thickness of just 11″, we weren’t sure if our huge tester was going to be able to sleep comfortably on the Leesa Hybrid.  Surprisingly, we were wrong and it was picked as his second favorite mattress.  The secret behind how they packed enough support into the mattress:

  1. 5″, 14.5 Gauge Pocket Spring System with edge support
  2. 2 separate 1″ layers of support foam with between 1.8-2 pound density

The Leesa Hybrid combines the look and feel of the original Leesa with enough support to please our Big & Tall tester.

#3 Brooklyn Bedding Spartan Mattress

Although it is advertised as more of a mattress for athletes, it is a perfect fit for people in the BIG & Tall category.  At 13.5″ thick the Spartan Mattress has more than enough material to hold up to very large people.  The key ingredient to a Spartan is the 8″ encased Quantum Edge Coils, which I saw how they were made during a Brooklyn Bedding factory tour.

#4 Saatva Mattress

The 11.5″ Saatva Mattress held up to the weight of our tester and has a true luxury feel.  Unfortunately, 2 things kept if from ascending higher on this list are:

  1. Lack of handles for moving around this large mattress
  2. The organic cover scrunches up a bit, especially on an adjustable frame.

The folks at Saatva have likely solved both of those issues with the launch of their new Saatva HD.  It features handles and a full 15.5″ thick frame, geared for people in the 300-500 pound range.
