One size doesn’t fit all when it comes to the best mattress for couples. Whether sleeping or cuddling, you want a mattress that supports you, your partner, and your sleeping styles. Beyond plush or firm, certain materials may appeal more if either of you sleeps restlessly or needs extra support.
Here's a mattress materials primer:
- Innerspring is the most traditional and affordable. Pocketed, or wrapped, coils respond better to movement by providing more support; they're also quieter and longer-lasting. I've left a strictly innerspring off this list since my hybrid pick combines an innerspring's affordability with a memory foam's motion isolation.
- Memory foam absorbs movement so it's great for restless sleepers. It does absorb heat, so if one of you runs hot, choose gel-infused foam for a cooling effect and increased airflow.
- Hybrids combine memory foam and innerspring mattresses most commonly. They're often comfortable for couples with varying sleep styles.
- Latex foam has more buoyancy than plain memory foam. For active, intimate moments, you'll be more comfortable and supported.
Shopping online means trusting reviews, but some mattresses have trial periods for full assurance it's a good fit for you.
