The Top 5 Traditional Mattress Companies

Tempurpedic Mattress

Not everyone feels up to buying a mattress online. It makes sense. While most online retailers offer trial periods, it’s not the same as going and testing out beds yourself. If you prefer the immediacy of an in-person experience, here are some good brands to start with.


Novaform stands out because of their personalization. Anyone who’s tried to shop for a bed knows that there are a ton of different brands and types. It’s easy to get overwhelmed. It can get even more difficult if you don’t know whether you want a plush, medium, or firm mattress. Novaform has a survey that helps you figure out which bed is likely to suit you based on your weight, sleeping style, and whether you sleep alone or not. The prices can be anywhere from  $439.99 to $1,099.99, depending on the size you need.


Your quality of sleep depends on how your mattress supports your body throughout the night. Tempur-Pedic is one of the top traditional mattress companies because of their proprietary foam construction. Tempur-Pedic uses eight inches of memory foam, divided into two different layers. The lower is a dense hybrid core, while the upper is a softer material that conforms to your body. Tempur-Pedic mattresses can start at $1,299.


Serta’s sheep commercials may not be as ubiquitous as they were, but Serta is still one of the best companies you can choose for your mattress. Not only are they affordable, but they’re engineered to solve five common issues you may have that keep you from restful sleep – tossing and turning, lack of support, uncomfortable temperatures, partner disturbance, and sagging. The standard queen set for a Serta runs anywhere from $399-$1,499. Of course, there’s a world of other options. Their popular iComfort Savant III starts at $1,999, but seems by all accounts to be worth it for firm mattress lovers who still want a little softness.


Sealy’s Posturepedic Technology delivers targeted support for your whole body for a unique restful experience. Since 50% of your weight rests in the middle of the mattress, that’s the part with the most reinforcement.  Sealy also has an exceptional warranty of up to 10 years. Sealy mattresses are American made and manufactured, and start at just $499 for a queen.

Doctor’s Choice

If you have a Denver Mattress near you, you may want to pick up a Doctor’s Choice mattress. Neurosurgeon Brian Wieder, who spends a lot of his time working with spinal care, is the doctor referenced in the name “Doctor’s Choice.” He claims that these mattresses can help relieve muscle pain thanks to the high-density foam. These mattresses have a 1.8-lb density, significantly more than the industry standard of 1.1 to 1.5 lbs. In addition to offering more support, the density makes the bed more durable. You can purchase your own for as low as $349.99.
