Mattress comparison and opinions

Undercover Mattress, Sleep investigators

What do we do? 

Mattresses are what we’re all about. It’s what we obsess over. We are a team of people who love to get stuck into an analysis of a mattress and see not only how it performs, but why it performs that way. We investigate under the covers with the meticulous eye of a detective who has one mission: to make your sleep heavenly.

Mattress qualities

According to most scientists, the grown adult should be getting from 7 to 9 hours of sleep per day. Having less can impact your physical health, your energy levels, your brain functionality and you mental health, with statistics even finding a correlation between suicide and lack of sleep. We don’t want to make this dark or depressing, but from this, it’s clear to see how important sleep is. If you’re going to listen to the words of the majority of sleep experts and scientists, it means you would be spending about a third of a 24 hour day in bed. That’s a third of your month, a third of your year; a third of your life. That is a lot of time on a mattress and that is a lot of a bad time if that mattress is poor. We don’t want anyone to have that kind of experience, where your days can literally be ruined by an awful sleep, so we take our duty very seriously. We don’t want to come across as heroic at all, but we want to save your sleep.


We have an unbiased eye

We believe in the idea that no mattress stands as the greatest mattress of all time like a Muhammed Ali, Lionel Messi, Michael Jordan, Ayrton Senna, or Roger Federer, but in the less athletic field of sleep. Rather, we believe if a mattress suits you just right, then it’s the one for you. We think the best mattress should be considered case by case and if we recommend you a mattress that restores or improves your sleep and brings it to a whole new level, then our job here is done. We don’t care how extravagant a mattress is, how many syllables it has in its cool name, who the billionaire that is promoting it is, if another mattress suits you even just a tad more, we would have provided a fair and impartial review which would nudge you more towards that.

We've got you covered:

You may feel that you always are being overlooked by mattress manufacturers and there is never what you are looking for available in the mattress market. Well, we can help with that. Perhaps you are in search of a vegan mattress, or you get crippling allergies to dust mites or weigh much more than the average person. Maybe you’re pregnant, suffer from scoliosis, or are one of those rare ‘star-fish’ sleepers. Regardless of your size, weight, shape, unique medical issues, or requirements, we think everybody has a mattress out there for them and it’s only a matter of marrying your profile with the mattress that comes closest to matching it.

Guide articles to support you

We get it. Not all of us are going to know what a high-resiliency-based, low-gauge micro-coil, open-cell polyurethane foam hybrid mattress has to offer without a breakdown. We provide articles that explain concepts, materials, measurements and terms in the mattress world that make it all super-easy to understand. If you think ILD stands for ‘ I’ll look downstairs’ or PCF stands for ‘Please come forward’ we applaud your creativity, but it seems you need that informational assistance and we’ll be more than happy to give it. Knowing about what makes a mattress great is, of course, essential to picking a great one.
