Put us to the test

Our Test Labs compare features and prices on a range of products. Try Which? to unlock our reviews. You'll instantly be able to compare our test scores, so you can make sure you don't get stuck with a Don't Buy.

Discover which mattress brands came out on top in our exclusive customer survey – and which you might want to avoid.

If you're buying a new mattress, it should be from a brand you can trust. We've surveyed 4,169 Which? members about their mattresses to compile our definitive guide to the best and worst brands. 

We have results for 20 mattress brands, including key high street brands such as Dreams, Ikea, John Lewis and Silentnight, as well as emerging online-only brands like Casper and Simba. Our survey revealed that there's a big difference in customer score between the best and worst brands – the top brand scored four and five stars for all star ratings, while the worst scored just two stars across the board.

As well as overall customer score, each mattress brand is rated for how comfortable its mattresses are, how well they match the description, whether it met peoples' overall expectations and whether they offer value for money. 

Our individual brand review pages, including this one for John Lewis mattresses, have more detail on each brand, including the types of mattress it sells, the prices of its mattresses and opinions from customers. 

Which? members can log in now to unlock the winners and losers in the table below, and gain access to the detailed information on each brand. If you're not already a member, you can try a £1 Which? trial to get instant access.
