There are too many choices. Too many have different names, but are the same mattress. Price seems to mean little. Many should go straight to the dump.
Consumer reports rates several no local store mattresses as the best. Avocado, Casper.
Most reviews appear to be unreliable. Buyer beware. just one of many products these days.

That's why when Mafia families get in a fight it's known as "going to the mattresses". It makes 'em mean.

I have to go mattress shopping this weekend.......not looking forward to it.

I got one from overstock.com last year and it has been the best mattress I’ve ever had. The name brand was Lucid I believe. They actually sent the wrong model and refunded my money and told me to keep it or throw it away. The price was right at $300. My gf has a purple mattress and mine is WAY more comfortable than hers and I know hers cost more than double what I almost paid.

I got a Stearns and Foster mattress from Beds For Less across from Cheddar's over a decade ago and it's held up since. It was maybe $600. I'm definitely a very firm mattress sleeper.

I had back surgery 30+ years ago. For several years I got the best sleep and felt better the next day if I slept on a carpeted floor.

The best mattress for me is firm with a decent pillow top. Somewhat similar.

Think about it like this fellas.... you probably use your mattress more than anything else you own..... 6-8 hours every day.
You’re most likely going to keep it for over 10 years.... don’t skimp.... I’m one of the tightest guys I know when it comes to money, but I went all in on my mattress. I forget the brand and etc. as it’s been about 10 years, but’s it a big heavy as hell memory foam type and it’s awesome.
