Tuft and Needle Review: Great Sleep, Incredible Value

Tuft and Needle - covershot

What is it about Tuft and Needle that make it so beloved by their customers?

As I was looking around at what other experts and customers had to say about the Tuft and Needle mattress, one thing surprised me.

Normally, when I dig deep enough into the bowels of the internet, I can find plenty of good & bad reviews for every mattress.

But when it comes to finding a negative Tuft and Needle review, it’s not that easy.

Tuft and Needle - 5 star reviews

On Amazon, Google, Yelp and Facebook, the mattress has almost exclusively super-high ratings.

Unlike other mattress-in-a-box companies, Tuft and Needle really seems to have struck a nerve with customers.

Lucid 12-Inch Gel Foam Mattress Review

Lucid Mattress Review

Lucid’s gel memory foam mattress is one of the lowest-priced mattresses sold online.

You may have seen Lucid’s incredibly low-priced beds on Amazon and Walmart.com. Lucid actually sells a wide range of affordable mattresses and sleep products.

The 12-inch gel memory foam mattress reviewed here is one of their most popular products, with over 1,000 reviews posted online. It is a single-comfort level, medium-firm mattress with decent lumbar support and just the right level of firmness for most people.  It’s not a revolutionary product, though.

Except for the price: at only $575 for a Queen, you get a lot of value for your money. And with a 25-year warranty, you can sleep easy.

But is this bargain gel foam bed worth buying?

Keep reading to learn about how Lucid’s 12-inch gel foam mattress performs in terms of support, comfort and warranty.

YogaBed Mattress Review

Yogabed Mattress Review

If you are shopping for an affordable memory foam mattress that sleeps cool, Yogabed has you covered.

(And this Yogabed mattress review might be worth a read.)

Memory foam mattresses are traditionally not that good at keeping you cool at night. The artificial closed-cell foams used in most tends to trap and reflect heat, warming your body through the night.

But Yogabed has designed a mattress to compete with the best hybrid and innerspring mattresses when it comes to wicking heat away from your body.

To do this, Yogabed uses several strategies to boost airflow in and out of the mattress while providing responsive support and comfort.

A queen size goes for $949 (with discounts, $849). You also get two free pillows with every mattress (1 pillow for the twin sizes).

Yogabed also checks all of the convenience boxes we have come to expect from online mattresses – free delivery, 101-night trial and a 10-year warranty.

But how well does it compare to the leading foam mattress leaders like Leesa and Casper?

Brooklyn Bedding Mattress Review

Brooklyn Bedding Mattress Review

Brooklyn Bedding just made its Signature mattress even better.

The Brooklyn Signature mattress is known as #bestmattressever (BME). The original marketing campaign worked well to make it this one of the most popular and affordable latex mattresses sold online.

Now, Brooklyn Bedding has updated the BME in a major way.

First off, it is no longer an all-foam latex mattress. They swapped their foam foundation with a layer of support springs, which makes the Signature now technically a hybrid mattress.

So: is the #bestmattressever still as supportive and comfortable as before? and how does it compare to other hybrid mattresses?

Novosbed Mattress Review

Novosbed Review

Novosbed is one of the most durable, comfortable and advanced memory foam mattresses you can buy.

In a lot of ways, it is everything that traditional memory foam mattresses are not. It sleeps incredibly cool, provides really good back support and is designed to last longer than you would expect from a memory foam mattress (it comes with a 15-year warranty).

The best part is that it is just as affordable as other premium foam mattresses: a Queen size Novosbed sells for $999.

You get an extra-long 120-day trial period and a free service to fine-tune your mattress design so you can avoid making a return.

Shipping is free and white glove delivery is available.

Sound interesting?

Then keep reading this review, where I’ll look at Novosbed’s key features and evaluate how it compares with other leading foam mattresses.

Big Fig Mattress Review: For Plus-Sized Sleepers

Big Fig Mattress

Big Fig mattress is the first online mattress designed specifically for plus-sized folks (up to 500 lbs per person).

The Big Fig was designed from the ground up for larger sleepers. It incorporates resilient foam, steel coils and a sturdy design to ensure you get maximum support and 20 years of use.

At the same time, the Big Fig is very comfortable with a soft/plush top that stays cool and feels surprisingly luxurious.

Big Fig is built extra-strong, too, which explains their market-beating 20-year warranty.

The only major downsides: Big Fig only comes in one comfort level (medium firm) – and it isn’t a budget buy.

If you’re not in the market for a mattress like this, please check out our other top picks.

Avocado Green Mattress Review: Real Organic Luxury For 70% Less

Avocado Green Mattress Review - hero shot

The Avocado Green Mattress may be the best organic luxury mattress sold online for less than $2,000.

It has all of the premium features you expect in a luxury organic mattress, but it costs 70% less than you would pay for anything like it in a store.

A Real Organic Mattress

Avocado Green Mattress Review - all natural materials

The Avocado Green is technically a hybrid mattress made with two primary materials, natural Dunlop latex and pocketed coils.

It uses natural New Zealand Joma wool as a fire barrier and is wrapped in a soft organic cotton button-top cover.

There is no memory foam or polyurethane foam used in this bed, not even in the base.

All of this organic luxury carries a higher price tag than you’d pay for a budget foam mattress like Casper.  A queen Avocado mattress costs about $1,400.

The closest comparison to the Avocado Green Mattress is the PlushBeds Botanical Bliss, which is about the same price.

If you’re in the market for a real organic mattress, then definitely take a look at the Avocado Green.

Like most other online mattresses, the Avocado comes with a no-risk in-home trial – so you have nothing to lose if you don’t like it.  Try getting that buying an organic bed in a store 😉
