Top Foam Mattresses as of 2017

Nest Bedding Alexander Signature Series

I have tested out 21 mattresses so far this year, and after you have been through that many you start to know if you are going to like them almost immediately.  The Alexander Signature Series was an instant hit for me.  No noticeable off gassing, handles on the box, handles on the sides of the mattress, a cool design on a soft cover, cooling tech inside the mattress, 3 levels of firmness to choose from.  Well, I think you get the idea, I love it!

So why Layla is ranked #2?

Besides the fact that the Layla is the only mattress that has two different firmness levels built in, where the sleeper can have the option of flipping the mattress to either a firm or soft side, Layla’s foam is infused with copper cells to keep you cool and keeping cool helps you sleep better and longer without tossing and turning.

We don’t want to forget about the cover, the closest thing to your body, infused with Thermo- Gel to keep you even cooler.

A lot of layers, don’t forget you can flip them

Layla also offers a lifetime warranty on its products, and most importantly it is made here in the USA with Top Quality foam and fabric.

All those features and much more make the Layla a high end mattress, you just have to try it to believe it. You’re just a click away- Keep in mind you can try the Layla up to 4 months after purchase, and in case you don’t like it, which is doubtful, you can return it without hassle.

 3nd place comes the Nectar

What makes the Nectar different than other foam mattresses, is the touch of bounce it offers that you don’t typically find in other premium foam mattresses, with soft rest feel and firmness that is just right providing you with support that your body needs. The Nectar mattress is comfortable.

Nectar’s top layer of quilted memory foam stimulates air flow beneath the body, while the Tencel fabric keeps the heat away.

The layers and fabric combination allows the Nectar to contour and support your body making it the perfect Medium Firm mattress delivering balanced weight distribution and pressure relief.

Nectar layers

The Nectar mattress is well known for its adaptive Hi Core Memory Foam that helps you support the body while providing rebound and bounce simultaneously.

In addition to its Free Shipping and Free return, you can take Nectar home for a 365 night trial. That alone is something you should consider if you decide to go with them!


The Leesa mattress:

Built with high quality materials to ensure better night sleep the three foam layers deliver cooling bounce, contouring pressure relief and core support, here’s real quick what makes the Leesa so special, layer by layer.

Cooling Avena Foam Layer

1. Cooling Avena® Foam

The two inch top layer allows air-flow for a cooler night’s sleep. The Avena foam also provides enough bounce for freedom of movement.

Pressure Relieving Memory Foam

2. Pressure Relieving Memory Foam

The 2” memory foam layer provides the body contouring and pressure relief you’ve come to expect from memory foam.

Dense Core Support

3. Dense Core Support

The 6” dense core support foam adds strength, durability and structure to support sleepers of all sizes, without feeling too firm on top

Moving on to the other #5 on the list, The Helix mattress is really something to rave about, you can individually design it, custom build it, and personalize it, just for you. We got the dual comfort mattress where they took our results and individually personalize each side, splitting the mattress in the middle.

Inside the Helix Hybrid mattress you will find their own Dynamic Foam as well as High-Grade Polyfoam together adaptable and incredibly reactive. Here’s my personal favorite ingredient, Pocketed Microcoils allowing better airflow to keep things cool, adding some springiness, resulting to better, localized, pressure relief than foam.  I know what you are thinking, that makes it a hybrid right?  Well sometimes I like to think of the Helix as a foam mattress that just happens to have tiny coils for extra stability.

Designed and assembled in the USA at #6 we have the Casper mattress, let’s take a quick peek at what’s in it:


Knit Cover

Knit Cover

Made from premium textiles, the zip-off cover is breathable and easy to clean.

Open-Cell Latex Foam

Open-Cell Foam

Their proprietary foam keeps the sleeper cool and adds bounce.

Responsive Memory Foam

Responsive Memory Foam

Supportive memory foam provides pressure relief.

Adaptive Transition Foam

Adaptive Transition Foam

Transition layer provides deep comfort through consistent weight distribution.

Durable Support Foam

Durable Support Foam

Support foam strengthens the comfort layers and adds long-lasting durability.

Our newcomer at #7 did not fail or disappoint us as we reviewed it, we’re talking about the The Aloha Mattress:

The Aloha Sleep mattress features Cool Sleeping Gel Foam layers to help alleviate pressure and a strong, supportive base material to keep your back in alignment. These features mean you will sleep cool, sleep supported and sleep comfortably. You have the opportunity to try this mattress up to 500 nights!  Super cool.

Mattress Firmness Scale

I have slept on each of these beds for around 2 weeks so I have a good feel for how firm they are in relation to each other.  Your preferences may be a bit different, or you may have your scale shifted a bit one way or the other.  On the extremes there isn’t really a debate, I know that Eve and Matsleep are far softer than the Casper Wave or The Bear mattress.  Of course it is going to get a little more complicated where you see all of the companies stacked together around 6-7.
