Nest Love & Sleep Mattress Review

Love & Sleep Mattress

Nest's Love and Sleep mattress is an upgrade of their popular Love Mattress. It also defies convention.

This is not a memory foam mattress, a latex foam mattress or a spring mattress.

Instead, the Love and Sleep mattress uses a special type of foam called Energex foam that combines the bouncy feel of a latex mattress with the extra-supportive comfort of memory foam. Nest also paid special attention to cooling, responsiveness and comfort.

The upgrade works.

This is one of the best mattresses we've reviewed at this price point.

You can buy it online for $699 (Queen), which is less than almost every budget mattress we've reviewed including Casper, Loom & Leaf and Purple.

Bottom-line, if you are looking for a comfortable and budget-friendly foam mattress, then the Love and Sleep mattress should be on your short list.

The rest of this 10-minute review analyzes the Love and Sleep on each of the factors that matter when buying a mattress online.

So let's get to it!

Nest Alexander Signature Series Flippable Mattress Review: Premium Zzzs for Less

Nest Alexander Signature Series flippable mattress - hero shot

The Alexander Signature Series Mattress is Nest Bedding's follow-up to their first wildly successful online mattress, the Nest Love Bed.

The Signature Series is also made of higher-quality materials (see below) that adhere to the organic/green manufacturing principles that all Nest Bedding products use.

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 Check on Amazon 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.

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?

Keep reading to find out!

Casper Wave Mattress Review

Casper Wave Mattress

If you like your mattress on the firmer side, sleep on your stomach or suffer from back problems – you’ll love the Casper Wave. Casper Wave is a uniquely-constructed mattress that uses separate firmness zones to improve spinal alignment and provide exceptional back support. The Wave is a relatively new, upmarket, addition to Casper’s lineup … Read more…

Casper Original Mattress Review: Updated for 2019

casper mattress review - with bedding in apartment

Casper's Original mattress is as good as most premium store-bought foam mattresses, but costs far less.

The Casper mattress excels at comfort, support and temperature control and will satisfy the vast majority of people. And everyone who buys one will save hundreds vs. a comparable quality mattress bought from a store.

It performs slightly lower in some areas that may matter to you, however, including motion transfer and edge support.

Casper attracted a lot of attention and sales a few years years ago when they entered the ancient mattress market with an aggressively low priced, really simple product sold direct to the consumer with a no-risk pitch.

Sales took off.

We bit, too. Casper was the first online mattress my husband and I bought, back when they were the only pure online manufacturer we knew.

Times have changed since then, of course. And so has Casper's original product.

So how does Casper's Original “best-fit” mattress compare today against newer competitors like Leesa, Tuft and Needle and Loom and Leaf?

Spindle Latex Mattress Review: Adjustable Luxury for a Rock-Bottom Price

Spindle Latex Mattress

We’ve reviewed several latex mattresses, but the Spindle latex mattress is the only one that we know of that lets you adjust its firmness/comfort level in 4 ways.

This is a natural latex mattress with three layers of foam, which is pretty normal.

What’s not ordinary about the Spindle is that it is delivered in 3 separate boxes, each containing a 3” latex layer. These layers can be rearranged to customize the mattress firmness by switching out one layer with a firmer or softer one that Spindle sends you, free of charge.

On top of that, the Spindle mattress is one of the least expensive natural latex mattresses you can buy online. They offer a split configuration, too.

Keep reading for my in-depth take on this excellent, affordable latex mattress.

If you don’t want to buy a latex mattress or the Spindle isn't right for you, then check out my other mattress recommendations.

Purple Mattress Review: In A Class Of Its Own

Purple Mattress - uncovered in modern bedroom

All of the mattresses we've reviewed so far have been one of three types: memory foam, latex foam or innerspring.

Until now.

The Purple Mattress is as different as they come – from how the company funds their growth, to their funky self-deprecating marketing, to the truly unique materials in their products.

Most importantly, the sleeping experience of this mattress is excellent and very different.  In a positive way.

I have to say, Eric and I love our Purple mattress. This is one of the best-sleeping and coolest mattresses we've ever owned.

So let’s dive in and find out why everyone is talking so much about the Purple Mattress… what, specifically, makes it so much better?
