Mattresses have really come a long way from the large, hard to move spring-filled mattresses that required an equally awkward box spring. Who would have ever imagined that one day there would be gel-infused cooling mattresses that are delivered to your home in a small box? We researched some of the best options out there to help you find the right cooling mattress for you. First, let’s take a look at some of the key features to keep in mind.
Size: Most of these mattresses are available in a range of sizes but we looked specifically at queen, king, and California king sizes. All of our picks are large enough for sharing, though they’re so comfy, you might not want to.
Memory Foam: All of our picks have some element of memory foam. Some are made using only various layers of memory foam while others are hybrids. Hybrids have a base that’s usually made of individually wrapper coils topped with memory foam.
Thickness: These mattresses vary from 10 to 14-inches thick. There’s not really any correlation between thickness and how firm the mattress is, though. Thicker mattresses mean thicker layers which may make you feel more supported in the long run.
Firmness: While most of these mattresses provide medium firm support because it’s the most popular option, we did find a little variety. If you’re looking for something plush, soft, or even very firm, there’s something here for you.
Hypoallergenic: Memory foam itself is hypo-allergenic but some of these mattresses, especially the hybrids, use additional materials. Most of the time, these mattresses have a hypoallergenic top layer but they may not be hypoallergenic though all the layers.
Warranty: Warranties vary a bit with these mattresses but, honestly, they’re all pretty impressive. Most are covered for 10 years though there are some that have warranties that go as long as 20 or 30 years, believe it or not.
Now that you know what to look for, let’s take a look at our reviews. If you’re in a hurry, start with the top and budget picks to get a good idea of the range that’s available. They’re easy to find because they’re the first 2 items on our list. All of these products are great, though, and they all offer a little something different. So, what’s the top cooling mattress? Let’s find out.
