Even more than your sheets and pillows, your mattress is a major factor in the quality of your sleep, and finding one that will keep you comfortable and cool in your preferred sleep position is especially important. Strategist writer Lauren Ro, a back-to-side sleeper who prefers a firmer mattress, found a winner when she tested the Tuft & Needle Original Mattress, which has a layer of dense memory foam as the base and cooling gel-infused foam at the top. Ro said she felt “supported and cocooned at the same time” when sleeping on her back, and flipping to her side was “natural” instead of grueling because the mattress’s all-foam construction has a supportive level of bounce — she didn’t experience any of the sinking feeling that is often associated with memory foam. And if you’re worried about overheating on an all-foam mattress, Ro says that her husband, who runs hot, slept on it comfortably. Right now you can get the Tuft & Needle Original Mattress at a 34 percent discount in all sizes — twin to California king — which brings the price for a queen down to $657, a $338 savings.
