Zinus Memory Foam Mattress

Yet another popular Zinus mattress that is getting extremely good reviews and ratings from consumers. The Zinus Sleep Master Ultima Comfort Memory Foam Mattress is very affordable and, for most owners, very comfortable. It also uses green tea extract to help maintain freshness and some of the traditionally petroleum-derived ingredients have been replaced with natural plant oils. In addition, the foam is CertiPUR-US certified (has met stringent standards for content, emissions, & durability). Some people find the edge support a little weak however and the mattress sometimes does not expand to the full advertized height.

Zinus Green Tea Mattress

When we read about a mattress infused with green tea we had to learn more.  We are big fans of green tea and consume several cups every morning.  Green tea is full of antioxidants which reduce free radicals in the body and protect cells from damage.  Research also suggests that green tea improves brain function, physical performance and can even lower the risk of a number of diseases.  We simply love the taste and the aroma and were wondering what does this beverage have to do with a mattress?

Casper Mattress

Casper launched in 2014 and they are one of a number of mattress start-ups in recent years. They’ve made a bit of a splash in the industry and have received widespread media coverage. The Casper mattress is a combination of three types of foam, including memory foam, and it is delivered directly to your door in a vacuum sealed package. Consumer ratings are fairly good to date and most owners like how easy it is to setup and feel it is good value for money. However some folks find it too firm and also report that delivery can be slow.


gel memory foam mattress

The Ultimate Dreams Gel Memory Foam Mattress is very popular and is getting solid ratings from owners.  It is made in the USA and is modeled after the Tempur-Pedic Cloud Luxe.  Consumers are pleased with the price (which is much less than the Cloud Luxe) and the fact that the mattress doesn’t sleep too hot.  Owners also report that the unit is both comfortable and supportive.  However there are some that feel the mattress is too soft.

Cool Breeze Gel Memory Foam Mattress

The new Cool Breeze 12-inch gel memory foam mattress is a popular seller on our site.  According to owners this is because it is quite inexpensive (about $475 for a Queen) and also because it alleviates some of the problems typical of traditional memory foam – the Cool Breeze provides good support at pressure points and it does not sleep hot.  It isn’t perfect however and like many mattresses with memory foam it gives off a chemical smell when first unpacked.

Carolina Mattress Guild

Carolina Mattress Guild (CMG) is a small company when compared to the larger outfits like Serta or Sealy, but they still offer a comprehensive range of latex, memory foam, and inner spring mattresses. In this review we look at their memory foam mattress G series. The company was founded in 1991 in Thomasville, North Carolina with only 5 employees but it is now much larger and has two facilities – one in Thomasville and the other in Orlando, Florida. 

LUCID 16 inch memory foam mattress

This is an overview of the 16-inch LUCID memory foam and latex mattress. We wanted to provide some information on this mattress as it is popular, reasonably priced and getting good grades from owners.  This is an ultra plush, four layer mattress with a 25 year warranty.  It uses memory foam, latex and high density base foam.  It is usually purchased online through Amazon or LinenSpa.

RV Mattress

Stock RV mattresses are often poor quality and as a result many RV owners choose to upgrade to an aftermarket, higher quality unit. There are a number of mattresses specially designed for RVs on the marketplace and we have compiled a list of 4 best-sellers.  These mattresses all get great ratings from owners.  You will want to check these out if you are looking to improve the quality of your rest while on the road.

Simmons ComforPedic

The Simmons ComforPedic memory foam mattress collection is going head-to-head with Tempur-Pedic. Simmons is running commercials that prompt customers to try Tempur-Pedic and ComforPedic mattresses side-by-side. ComforPedic are available in a wide range of styles each with different layers and features. Owner reviews are quite good and praise ComforPedic mattresses for their ability to alleviate joint pain and limit motion transfer. They are also reportedly very comfortable and don’t sleep hot. On the downside, they tend to be a bit expensive and are also heavy.

Serti iComfort Review

Serta has been around since the early 1930’s and today the company is the second largest bedding manufacturer in the world.  They also provide mattresses to hotel chains such as Hilton, Marriott, Intercontinental, etc.   Like many other mattress manufacturers today, Serta has recently jumped on the memory foam bandwagon and their most recent offering in this arena is the iComfort series. Owners find the iComfort mattresses dense, comfortable and very breathable but they are rather heavy.

LUCID by LinenSpa

There are three different LUCID by LinenSpa Memory Foam Mattresses and they are available through Amazon. All mattresses are getting great consumer ratings and the 8 and 10 inch versions are firm while the 12 inch version is plush. Owners like the high level of comfort and low price.  [REF Memory Foam Mattress Reviews]

Novaform memory foam mattress

NovaForm memory foam mattresses are very popular but online information is somewhat limited.  Nevertheless we have dug up enough to get a reasonably coherent picture of these mattresses.  NovaForm is manufactured by Sleep Innovations and consumer ratings are quite good.  There are two popular NovaForm mattress models commonly found on sites like Amazon and Costco and these include the NovaForm Pure Comfort and the NovaForm Gel.  [REF Sleep Innovations Mattress Reviews]

In this article we put forth our top choices for affordable memory foam mattresses.  A number of more expensive alternatives exist such as those by Tempur-Pedic, Simmons (the NxG), Sealy (the Embody series), etc. but the mattresses chosen here are much less costly and still get great ratings from consumers.  [REF Memory Foam Mattress Reviews]

Spa Sensations

There is little written about this particular company but they sell quite a few mattresses on both Amazon and Walmart.  They also sell through their own website which claims that they have been around for about 10 years and have sold over 1 million mattresses.  They have spring mattresses and memory foam mattresses, as well as memory foam & spring hybrids.  Their mattresses are generally not too expensive and consumer ratings are good.  [REF Spa Sensations Mattress Reviews]

Dynasty Mattress Queen Celebrity

Dynasty Mattress has a number of popular mattresses on Amazon and the 13” Queen Celebrity PillowTop is one of their better selling memory foam units.  It is also getting very good customer reviews.  Owners frequently comment on this mattresses great price, comfort and similarity to the more expensive Tempur-Pedic.  Unfavorable comments are few but some folks mention that it does have an odor after unpacking.  [REF Dynasty Mattress Reviews]

Dynasty Mattress Memory Foam

Memory foam mattresses were originally developed by NASA to help astronauts deal with severe g-forces but were prohibitively expensive.  New technology has made this material much more affordable and companies like Dynasty Mattress specialize in memory foam mattresses for the home.  The Luxury Grand King by Dynasty Mattress is popular and reviews on Amazon for this mattress are excellent.  If you are in the market for a reasonably priced king size memory foam mattress you will want to give this one some consideration.  [REF Dynasty Mattress Reviews]

Dynasty Mattress for Kids

Dynasty Mattress, the popular alternative to Tempurpedic, is manufacturing a memory foam mattress for kids – the Visco 4 Kids 7" Twin Memory Foam Mattress.  It is getting good reviews (although reviews are limited) and is available through Amazon.  Consumers like the fact that they can get a quality memory foam mattress for their kids at a reasonable price, and that the mattress is firm yet still comfortable.  Like all of their mattresses Dynasty Mattress compare this to a Tempurpedic.  [REF Dynasty Mattress Reviews 2011]

Serta Gel Foam Mattress

Serta manufactures a memory foam mattress with a rather special approach.  It uses gel beads inside the memory foam to increase support and provide additional cooling.  The mattress does not appear to be widely available but we have seen it at a few retail outlets including Amazon where comments and ratings from owners are very good.  The mattress is also not too expensive.  [REF Serta Mattress Reviews]

Dynasty Celebrity Mattress

The king size Celebrity mattress by Dynasty Mattress is another winner.  It is a best-seller on Amazon and customers there rate it a very high 4.5 stars out of 5.  According to Dynasty Mattress the king size Celebrity (or King Celebrity as it is sometimes called) is the equivalent of Tempurpedic’s CelebrityBed mattress.  It is just a whole lot less expensive.  [REF Dynasty Mattress Reviews]

Sarah Peyton Mattress

In the world of memory foam mattresses the big boys are Tempur-Pedic.  And while most consumers feel they make a good product, they do tend to be somewhat expensive.  As such, there are several smaller and less expensive memory foam manufacturers in the marketplace.  The more popular ones include Dynasty Mattress, Sleep Innovations, and Sarah Peyton.  Sarah Peyton memory foam mattresses are often found on sites like Amazon and, in part due to their affordability, they tend to be best-sellers. [REF Sarah Peyton Mattress Reviews 2011]

A lot of visitors to Mattress Advisor search for Dynasty mattresses.   Dynasty provides memory foam mattresses and memory foam pillows but there is not too much information available about the company itself.   They appear to have become popular as the cheaper alternative to the popular Tempur-Pedic memory foam mattresses.  They are marketed as retailers of high-quality, low-cost memory foam orthopedic mattresses.  [REF Memory Foam Mattress Reviews 2010]

The Tempurpedic Celebrity Bed is fairly well liked by consumers however it is, like many Tempurpedic mattresses, quite expensive.  People tend to like the level of comfort and support provided by the Celebrity but like a lot of foam mattresses there are issues related to heat and initial mattress odor. [REF Tempurpedic Mattress Reviews 2010]

Sleep Innovations Memory Foam

We have often looked to Dynasty Mattress for a less expensive alternative to Tempur-Pedic, but Sleep Innovations, a company that markets its products through department stores, online retailers and mass merchandisers, also offers affordable memory foam sleep products.  Their 10 and 12-inch Sure Temp Memory Foam Mattresses come with a 20 year warranty, can often be found for less than $400 (Queen), and are best-sellers on Amazon[REF Sleep Innovations Mattress Reviews]

Tempur Cloud mattresses by Tempur-pedic are fairly new to the market and combine TEMPUR-ES (a new Tempur-pedic material) with their existing TEMPUR material.  TEMPUR-ES provides a softer pillow-top type of feel while the TEMPUR provides more support.  There are presently two mattress in the Tempur Cloud collection – Tempur Cloud and Tempur Cloud Supreme.  There are plans to add more mattresses to this collection soon.  These are essentially memory foam mattresses. [REF Tempurpedic Mattress Reviews 2010]

Sealy Embody Mattress
Click to see Sealy Embody on Amazon

The Sealy Embody series of mattresses is a new line released by Sealy in Early 2010.  The Embody series includes high-end Latex and Memory Foam mattresses.  More entry-level latex and memory foam Sealy mattress can be found under the “Sealy Brand” line.  The Embody mattress sets are fairly expensive with prices ranging between 2000USD and 3300USD (for a queen size with boxspring).  [REF Sealy Mattress Reviews 2010]

The Tempur Pedic AlluraBed is an expensive memory foam pillow-top mattress that can be purchased with a foundation and also with an electronically adjustable base.  It comes in an array of sizes and is well-liked by consumers, but still has a few drawbacks that are typical of memory foam mattresses. [REF Tempurpedic Mattress Reviews 2010]

Simmons Beautyrest NxG

The Simmons Beautyrest NxG mattress combines both the Simmons Beautyrest Pocketed coil concept (individually material wrapped coils) with advanced memory foam.  Simmons claim this combination provides the “ultimate Beautyrest experience”. [REF Simmons Mattress Reviews 2010]

Dynasty Mattress

One of the best-selling mattresses on Amazon (and also one of the highest rated by consumers) is the “Queen 12 inch Therapeutic Memory Foam Mattress with 5 inch Viscoelastic Memory Foam” by Dynasty Mattress.  Dynasty Mattress manufacture relatively high quality memory foam mattresses and provide them for a fair bit less than the bigger brand names.  [REF Memory Foam Mattress Reviews 2010]

Memory foam mattresses are relatively new products but are extremely popular in the bed marketplace at the moment.  The mattresses have appeared in various homes up and down the country.  They have recently been the subject of many consumer reports, the majority of which have been positive, but yet little is known about what they are and why they are different.  [REF Memory Foam Mattress Reviews 2010]
