Mattresses: Best Buys
Time to replace your old mattress?
We spend a third of our lives in bed, so it's crucial that your mattress helps you get a good night's sleep. But that doesn't necessarily mean buying the most expensive mattress you can afford.
Which? mattress tests simulate 10 years of use to show you how a mattress will change over time, and sometimes it's the cheaper mattresses which prove to be more durable.
- We get people with different body types to lie on each mattress to ensure each mattress is suitable for a wide range of people.
- We test how mattresses change by simulating 10 years of use, so you can be sure that our Best Buys are built to last.
- We help you avoid mattresses that get harder or softer over time, so you can choose a mattress that will feel as comfortable in the future as when you first bought it.
Our reviews show that you don't always get what you pay for with an expensive mattress. Find out which models we recommend with a £1 trial to Which?.
What makes a Best Buy mattress?
Mattress reviews you can trust
We test mattresses from premium brands such as Tempur alongside cheaper mattresses from Silentnight and Ikea, so you know whether it's worth spending more on a mattress from a big-name brand.
Which? is independent - we work for you, the consumer, so you can be sure that our product recommendations are influenced only by our test results. We don't take advertising and we buy all the products that we test ourselves, so our advice helps you to make the right choice first time and avoid costly mistakes.
