There are a few mattresses we tested that don't stand out as much but are worth mentioning, in case you're thinking about them.
Keetsa All-Foam Tea Leaf Supreme for $1,590: WIRED reviewer Matt Jancer tested the Keetsa for several months. He's a side sleeper, and though he was never blown away by the mattress's comfort, he slept fine from start to finish. He didn't think he would since the mattress is on the soft side. It has three layers of foam and a thin top layer that's made from recycled materials.
The Purple Mattress for $1,299: I had many good nights of sleep on the Purple—and I love the airy, Jell-O-ey, cool feel of the square grid that Purple uses for softness and support (it's like lying on a bunch of waffles made of soft, stretchy silicone)—but it just isn't quite as comfortable as hybrid (coil-and-foam) mattresses. There is a hybrid Purple, but it's pricey. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but just know that Purple mattresses are also kind of heavy.
