Mattress Comparisons

Original Forum Post by quop. Created as a Wiki Article so anyone may update/improve the quality of information.

This list is restricted to mainly online businesses selling “boxed mattresses”. Some businesses tell you more info about their mattresses than others. Hopefully this information is useful to others in their mattress hunt. Some notes:

  • Only looked at Single and Queen size standard pricing, and mattresses with at least a pocket spring/other support layer (ie no Bonnell / continuous coil springs)
  • All have at least 10 years warranty, some have 15, Ikea mattresses have 25 years warranty
  • All have some form of a trial period, typically 100 days/nights; Ikea has a 365 day exchange policy
  • All have free delivery except Ikea (though you have the option of transporting it yourself)
  • Materials are listed from bottom of mattress to top
  • MF = memory foam, HD = high density, PU = polyurethane
  • Information is correct as of November 2016, and based on what was on the business' websites at the time.
