There are a few mattresses we tested that don’t stand out as much but are worth mentioning, in case you’re thinking about them.
Keetsa All-Foam Tea Leaf Supreme for $1,590: WIRED reviewer Matt Jancer tested the Keetsa for several months. He’s a side sleeper, and although he was never blown away by the mattress’s comfort, he slept fine from start to finish. He didn’t think he would since the mattress is on the soft side. It has three layers of foam and a thin top layer that’s made from recycled materials.
The Purple Mattress for $1,299: I had many good nights of sleep on the Purple—and I love the airy, Jell-O-ey, cool feel of the square grid that Purple uses for softness and support (it’s like lying on a bunch of waffles made of soft, stretchy silicone)—but it just isn’t quite as comfortable as hybrid (coil-and-foam) mattresses. There is a hybrid Purple, but it’s pricey. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but just know that Purple mattresses are also kind of heavy.
Casper Standard Foam Mattress for $1,295: The original Casper mattress popularized the idea of a bed in a box years ago, and it’s still a comfortable all-foam choice at a good price. But the hybrid version with coils is better.
Molecule Hybrid Mattress for $1,899: WIRED reviewer Medea Giordano likes this comfy mattress and has had no problems sleeping on it for months. However, while edge support is fine on three sides, it’s almost “non-existent” at the bottom of the bed. She almost fell off while putting on her shoes. You can also feel the coils at the edges of the mattress, although this isn’t a huge issue because it’s undetectable when actually sleeping.
Leesa Original Mattress for $1,099: The standard Leesa is a lot like the Casper, but it feels a little more comfortable.
DreamCloud Luxury Hybrid Mattress for $899: This is another luxury mattress with a thick pillow top that’s very comfortable like the Helix Midnight Luxe and Allswell Supreme.
