As part of our big mattress extravaganza, various Strategist writers with different sleeping styles tested out all the major players in the mattress-in-a-box scene. Writer Lauren Ro, a side-sleeper who often rolls onto her back in the night and prefers something on the firmer side, was very pleased with her Tuft & Needle: “Lying on the Tuft & Needle for the first time, I immediately felt embraced. Sleeping on my back, I felt supported and cocooned at the same time, and when I turned to my side, the transition felt natural.” She notes that her husband “also really likes it, and he’s a back- and stomach-sleeper whose temperature runs a little hotter than mine.” It’s cheaper than most of its competitors, and right now it’s even cheaper than usual — 20 percent off — on Amazon.
The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
