Here are the 2023 best mattresses made in the USA, along with information about their materials, performance, and prices. In addition to providing tips on what to look for in an American-made mattress, we also explain which certifications are the most important.
With so many types of mattresses on the market, choosing the right one can be a challenge. There are many factors to consider when shopping for a mattress, including material, construction, price, firmness, and size. Another important consideration is where the mattress comes from. Customers living in the US may receive a US-made mattress sooner than a product made abroad, especially if the mattress is made-to-demand. Domestic mattresses may also spend less time in warehouses or be wrapped in plastic.
1. New tests and ratings for 2023
Here is a list of the best American-made mattresses newly tested and rated for 2023.
The WinkBed is one of the most versatile American-made mattresses our team has personally tested. This foam blend is available in four firmness levels to accommodate different individuals based on body size and primary sleeping position. A sturdy support system and breathable hood complete the attractive design.
Standard WinkBed models are available in three firmness options. These mattresses consist of a layer of plush foam sewn into the bottom of the Euro-style top, followed by a second layer of foam for extra cushioning. Our side and back sleepers under 130 lbs felt most comfortable on the medium-soft(4) WinkBed, which is contoured to the body closely. Heavier testers who use these positions—and prone who weigh up to 230 pounds—prefer the medium firm (6) and firm (7) models.
You can also choose the WinkBed Plus (8), a variant designed for those over 230 lbs. These models swap out the second layer of foam for zoned latex, which feels firmer and more supportive around the midsection. All versions of the WinkBed are constructed with zoned pocket coils that also strengthen the chest, abdomen, and buttocks – areas of the body where people tend to carry extra weight.
A cover made of moisture-wicking Tencel fabric wraps around the mattress. This material helps cool the WinkBed’s exterior, while the coils promote steady airflow to maintain a comfortable internal temperature. While each firmness level has unique benefits, our team found that all versions of the WinkBed provide excellent overall temperature regulation.
The WinkBed Plus is priced slightly higher than the standard WinkBed model, but both are within the average price range for a hybrid mattress and come with free shipping in the continental United States. Your order includes a 120-night trial period. If you’re not satisfied with your initial firmness choice, WinkBed allows you to switch to a softer or firmer mattress for free with a 60-night trial period. The lifetime warranty covers the mattress for structural defects as long as you retain the original title.
2) Dreamfoam Essential
Brooklyn Bedding’s Dreamfoam Essential is an all-foam model that comes in five different configurations, each with a different firmness level. Customers with unique sleeping arrangements benefit from affordable prices and generous sizing options.
Depending on the model you choose, the thickness of the comfort system and support core will vary. The 6-, 8-, and 10-inch models all feature a thinner layer of gel-infused memory foam that conforms to the body and relieves pressure points. For extra cushioning, the 12- and 14-inch models feature gel-infused memory foam over polyfoam. All models feature a high-density polyfoam support core that reinforces the sleeping surface.
Each model falls at a different level on our 10-point hardness scale. The 6-inch, 8-inch, and 10-inch models have a stiffer feel and are extra-hard (8), hard (7), and medium-hard (6), respectively. The 12-inch model has a medium feel (5), and the 14-inch model has a medium-soft feel (4). Each model performed differently in our hands-on testing. Our side sleepers prefer the thicker model for added cushioning, while back and belly sleepers generally prefer the firmer model. Because of its balanced feel, the 10-inch medium-firm mattress received top marks for all sleeping positions.
Especially the 10-inch model and thicker profiles are able to isolate motion very well due to their all-foam construction. Those looking for better temperature control or edge support may prefer thinner models as they don’t fit as well. Most models received higher ratings in our stress relief test, making them a good choice if you wake up with sore spots in your joints or lower back.
Dreamfoam Essential offers free shipping and a 90-night sleep trial. During the trial period, you can test the mattress and return it for a full refund. The mattress is covered by a 10-year warranty against structural defects.
3) Saatva Classic
The Saatva Classic is a coil-to-coil innerspring mattress that combines layers of foam and coils to create a responsive yet breathable bed. It features a poly foam bolster, memory foam lumbar pad, and pocketed 14.5 gauge micro coil and 13 gauge hourglass coil support core.
The double-coil design and soft cotton cover promote breathability, making this mattress ideal for thermal pillows. Its coil-based construction also adds the edge support and bounce the sleeper needs to move easily across the bed. With proper care, the bed’s durable support structure should provide years of comfort.
Saatva Classic is available in soft (3), medium firm (6), or firm (8) firmness ratings and comes in 11.5 or 14.5-inch heights. It is available in Twin, Twin XL, Full Size, Queen, King, Split King, California King, and Split California King.
This mattress comes with a lifetime limited warranty and a 365-night sleep trial. The company offers free white-glove shipping within the continental United States, which means a professional will deliver the mattress and install it in your home. Saatva will also collect your old mattresses and foundations for disposal.
4) Layla Hybrid
The Layla Hybrid is reversible, allowing sleepers to choose between medium soft (4) and firm (7) sides. Our testing found this design to be suitable for a variety of sleepers.
The medium-soft side features thicker copper gel-infused memory foam and a poly-foam comfort layer that conforms to the body to relieve pressure. Both sides share a pocketed coil support core, and the firm side has a thinner foam layer for light surface cushioning. Soft polyester, rayon, viscose, and poly-lycra cover on both sides. The cover on the softer side is a light gray hexagon pattern, while the hard side is dark gray.
The softer side of the mattress provided the best relief and support for our side sleepers under 130 lbs, who found they could sink comfortably into the surface. At the same time, the firm side provides excellent support for those who weigh at least 130 lbs.
Since the firmness of this mattress varies depending on which side is used, it’s a great option for Airbnb hosts and those who want to experiment with different firmnesses. It also offers very good motion isolation, which is useful for couples who want to sleep next to each other undisturbed. Furthermore, its construction and materials provide very good temperature neutrality, especially for beds with foam layers.
Made in the USA mattresses are available in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, and California King. Layla knows the importance of having the best pillows available, so buyers get two free pillows in addition to free shipping within the continental US. In addition, Layla offers a 120-night sleep trial and a 10-year warranty.
5) Helix Midnight
Helix Sleep offers a wide range of hybrid mattresses, each designed for a specific combination of body shape and sleeping position. The Helix Midnight is for side sleepers between 130 and 230 lbs. That said, our real-world testing suggests that the Midnight’s balanced design and medium-firm (6) feel may appeal to more sleepers.
The mattress starts with a memory foam comfort layer, followed by a poly foam transition layer. These components are contoured to moderately and evenly distribute your weight, promoting even alignment and reducing stress on the shoulders, lower back, and hips. Pocketed coils and high-density base foam form the support core. The coils are reinforced around the perimeter for a strong push when you’re sleeping next to the edge or getting in and out of bed.
In our testing, Midnight got the best ratings for side sleepers from 130 to 230 pounds, and back and stomach sleepers under 130 pounds. However, testers in all three position groups up to 230 pounds found the mattress to be comfortable and supportive. Our tests also showed that the Midnight does a good job regulating the temperature. This can be attributed to the steady air circulation through the coil system and the breathable knit cover.
With a list price well below average, the Midnight offers free ground shipping to customers in all 50 states, so if you’re on a tight budget, this mattress is a great option. You will also receive a sleep trial for orders that run for 100 nights. Should you decide to keep Midnight, Helix Sleep further backs your purchase with a 10-year manufacturer’s warranty.
6) Bear elite hybrid
If you wake up feeling sore or stiff, your mattress could be to blame. A sleeping surface that doesn’t cushion the body and distribute body weight evenly can create stress in areas like the neck, shoulders, lower back, and hips. The Bear Elite Hybrid Mattress is designed to alleviate this problem. You can choose from three firmness levels based on your body weight and sleeping position, and the zoned transition layer pushes back against areas of your body that weigh disproportionately.
The Elite Hybrid starts with a memory foam comfort layer. The copper fiber infusion helps to counteract the insulating properties of the foam, so the surface should remain relatively cool. The convoluted foam forms the transition layer. The assembly is divided into five firm zones, with extra reinforcement in the middle and a softer feel elsewhere.
The supportive core contains pocketed coils designed to move independently of each other, providing strong support without excessive motion transfer. Thicker coils line the perimeter to resist your weight when you lie near the edge of the mattress or get in and out of bed. High-density base foam completes the hybrid design, and a cover made of heat-dissipating Celliant blend wraps the entire mattress.
You can choose from Medium (5), Medium (6), and Rugged (8) designs for your Elite Hybrid, each with unique benefits. Our testing shows that Medium Touch works best for side and back sleepers under 130 lbs. This design contours to cushion the body tightly and may sink unduly under heavier individuals. Extra Support is most popular among our side sleepers over 230 lbs, back sleepers at least 130 lbs, and back sleepers 130 to 230 lbs. If you’re looking for a balance of cushioning and support, a medium-firm feel should be just fine.
Mattresses are available in seven sizes, including king-size sheets for couples sharing adjustable beds. If you and your partner have very different firmness preferences, you can order the Split King with a different feel on each side. Bear offers free shipping within the continental US. Every order comes with a 120-night sleep trial, and the mattress comes with a lifetime warranty.
7) Nolah Signature 12
This 12-inch all-foam mattress features the company’s own invention called AirFoam. High-stretch AirFoam is designed to increase breathability for a cool sleep experience while effectively cushioning high-pressure areas of the body. The bed’s comfort system layers 2.5 inches of plush AirFoam over 1.5 inches of polyfoam and provides a responsive yet supportive feel over another 1-inch layer of firmer AirFoam. The mattress support core is made of 7-inch high-density foam.
An ivory organic cotton cover helps the mattress breathe. For hot pillows who like the feel of a responsive foam bed, this mattress might be a good choice. The medium (5) firmness level of the all-foam Nolah Signature 12 provides a combination of support and relief for back, side, and belly sleepers who weigh less than 130 lbs.
However, back and stomach sleepers who weigh more than 130 pounds may prefer a firmer foam mattress or may want to try another type of mattress, such as a hybrid or innerspring mattress. Nolah offers a lifetime limited warranty and a 120-night sleep trial with every mattress purchase, and the company offers free shipping and returns within the continental U.S.
Nolah’s eight U.S. factories produce mattresses using American-made materials. The company takes about a week to make the mattresses before shipping them via FedEx. Once the mattress is shipped, it usually takes 1 to 4 business days to arrive.
8) Birch Mattress
Many people associate pain and stress relief with a soft, adaptable mattress. That may be true for some, but others need a firmer, more responsive surface with softer contours to reduce discomfort. The latter is ideal for the Birch Mattress, a medium firm (6) latex blend that supports the sleeper’s weight while supporting the body. For those who need extra support from the sleeping surface, the result is a very balanced feeling.
Mattresses start with wool and rayon batting sewn into the comforter. The material acts as a fire barrier and also has moisture-wicking properties to help keep you dry. The second batting layer contains pure GOTS-certified organic wool for added cooling. Talalay latex is used in the comfort system to give the Birch a fair amount of bounce on the surface. The latex is certified by the Rainforest Alliance, ensuring that the rubber trees used to produce the latex are sustainably grown.
The support core contains pocketed coils over a second wool rayon fire protection layer. The coils are zoned with extra perimeter reinforcement, so you should feel stable when lying near the edge of your mattress or when getting in and out of bed. Steady airflow flows over the coils to help maintain a comfortable temperature inside, and the latex is vented for extra airflow near the surface.
Even by latex-blend standards, the mattress is surprisingly cool to sleep on. Our testing shows that Birch’s mid-range feel works best for those in all position groups who weigh 130 to 230 pounds. Heavier side sleepers and lighter back and belly sleepers may also find the mattress comfortable.
The Birch’s price is lower than the average price for a hybrid model, and shipping is free to all 50 states. Every order comes with a 100-night sleep trial, and those who choose to keep the mattress will also get a 25-year warranty.
9) Titan Plus
The durable construction and support coils of this firm (8) mattress provide excellent support for sleepers weighing over 230 lbs, regardless of their preferred sleeping position. Its hybrid design improves breathability and creates a cool sleeping experience, making it a great option for active sleepers who will be able to move easily across the Titan Plus’ responsive surface.
Despite its ability to provide a bouncy, easy-to-navigate surface and above-average edge support, this mattress also offers good motion isolation, making it a good choice for couples or those who share a bed with pets or children.
The mattress covers a 1″ top comfort layer of gel-infused memory foam over a 2″ TitanFlex foam layer for added cushioning and responsiveness to the bed, while 6″ individually wrapped pocketed coils and an additional 2″ high-density foam create firmness in the supporting core.
Despite the mattress’s breathability, for those concerned about sleeping warm, the company offers an optional cooling top panel that can be sewn into the mattress surface for an additional cost.
This bed is only available on Brooklyn Bedding’s website. Shoppers can choose from Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, California King, or Split California King mattress sizes. Titan Plus is made to order at Brooklyn Bedding’s Arizona facility and ships in a box. The company offers free shipping and returns for customers in the continental United States. Each mattress also comes with a 10-year limited warranty and a 120-night sleep trial.
10) Nest Bedding Owl
The Nest Bedding Owl is a latex and foam blend that provides an excellent balance of pressure point cushioning and responsive support. In our team, side sleepers and people with ongoing stress levels found that the mattress significantly reduced their joint and lower back pain.
The quilted organic cotton and wool cover gives the surface a soft feel, and the material’s natural breathability helps regulate temperature. There’s also a layer of polyfoam in the cover that conforms to your body to relieve built-up pressure. Underneath is a thicker layer of Dunlop latex that enhances pressure relief without causing your body to sink too deep.
The pocketed coils constitute the support core. The coils are individually wrapped, enabling them to provide targeted support to heavier areas of the body. Mattress edges are strengthened by perimeter reinforcement. The coils are placed on a foam base to prevent movement. A breathable organic cotton and wool cover wraps around the mattress.
Available in three hardness options: soft (3), medium (5), and hard (7). Our in-house testing found the softest option works best for side sleepers under 130 lbs who appreciate the extra cushioning. Most of our side and back sleepers up to 230 pounds earn top marks for Medium Touch. Our back and belly sleepers enjoy enhanced support from the firmest model available.
Like many mattresses with a latex comfort layer, the Owl scored highly in our temperature control tests. Layers of cotton and fleece keep the surface cool, while coils promote steady internal airflow. Our heat gun detected very little heat buildup, and our heat sleeper testers felt comfortable. Combo sleepers may also appreciate the mattress due to the responsive feel, which should allow them to move easily throughout the night.
Nest Bedding offers free shipping to customers living in the continental United States. You can try the mattress within 365 nights and return it for a full refund. If you continue to use the mattress after the trial period, it is covered by a lifetime warranty.
2. How to choose an American-Made mattress
When choosing a mattress made in the USA, it is important to consider the product’s design, materials, price, and performance. Other considerations include company policies, such as trial periods and warranties, as well as your sleep needs and lifestyle.
If you’re going to shop for a mattress, you’ll need to find a business near you. However, many U.S. companies offer free shipping on beds purchased within the continental United States, making it convenient and affordable to order mattresses from other parts of the country.
1) How to choose a mattress
When shopping for a mattress, we encourage you to pay attention to the specifics of each model, not just the mattress company’s marketing materials, which can be vague and misleading.
We also urge you to consider your bedding preference. If you already have a specific material you like, like memory foam or latex, it will narrow down your search and save you time.
To make your buying decision easier, we’ve listed the top things to look out for when buying an American-made bed. When looking for your ideal mattress, these factors will help ensure you’re getting a quality product that meets your unique needs within your budget.
Pricing is an important factor in any mattress buying decision, and costs vary widely by model. Pricing for a mattress usually depends on its design, features, materials, dimensions, and where it is manufactured.
Mattresses made in the U.S. can be more expensive than in other countries due to higher labor costs, the use of high-quality materials, and stricter safety and environmental regulations. The higher local wages and stricter regulations support the health and safety of their communities and local economies, but many shoppers prefer American-made mattresses.
#2. Sleeping position
Mattress performance varies based on your specific sleeping style. You should consider whether to sleep on your side, your stomach, your back, or a combination of all three. Shoppers must look for mattresses that fit their preferred sleeping positions.
For example, memory foam mattresses are often not the best choice for prone sleepers, who often need the firmer support of a hybrid mattress or innerspring mattress. However, memory foam models may offer excellent pressure relief for side sleepers.
#3. High-quality materials
The materials used in a bed design determine how breathable, supportive, and firm it is, its price, ease of cleaning, and durability. Shoppers may benefit from researching a company’s materials sourcing policies. Some companies strive to source materials locally, which may be preferable to those looking to support American jobs or limit their carbon footprint by sourcing only locally.
For those looking for an American-made product, it is important to clarify that the bed is actually made in the USA and not simply assembled there. For this, look for the term “Made in the USA” rather than “Assembled in the USA.”
How firm your mattress is plays an important role in supporting a sleeper. A softer mattress can provide excellent pressure relief and support for side sleepers, while a firmer mattress can help stomach sleepers maintain correct posture. If you’re not sure which firmness level is best for you, you might want to go to a mattress store and try a few options out for yourself.
If the mattress doesn’t support the sleeper properly, it can lead to an uncomfortable sleeping experience, as well as painful waking. A mattress with good pressure relief can limit pressure on key areas of the body, such as the hips and shoulders.
#6. Motion Isolation
For bed sharers, a mattress with good motion isolation can help prevent sleep disturbances when your partner moves around or gets in and out of bed. Mattresses that contain memory foam usually do well in this category.
Many people are prone to overheating while sleeping. To maintain a comfortable temperature, shoppers should look for mattresses that are well-regulated. Mattresses that regulate temperature well usually include breathable materials and structures that promote adequate airflow. In general, coil beds provide better airflow, while all-foam mattresses, especially those with thick or dense layers of memory foam, tend to trap heat.
#8. Edge Support
Edge support allows people to sit or sleep on the edge of the mattress without noticeable sagging. People who prefer to sleep on the side of their bed, or who have trouble getting in and out of bed, may prefer a mattress with good support around the edges. Many mattresses include reinforced edges to prevent sinking along the perimeter of the mattress.
Contour refers to how closely the mattress conforms to the shape of the sleeper’s body. Materials with high point elasticity, such as memory foam, generally have better contours than other materials, such as polyfoam.
Mattress Type The type of mattress a shopper chooses can change their entire sleeping experience, so you must carefully consider which design is best for you. Most sleepers can find a fit in the three most common types of beds: foam beds, innerspring beds, and hybrid beds.
3. Frequently asked questions about American-Made mattresses
Here are frequently asked questions about mattresses made in the USA.
1) What is the price range for mattresses made in the USA?
Most quality American-made mattresses cost between $1,000 and $2,000. However, price ranges vary widely based on a number of factors, including the quality and type of materials used in mattress construction, as well as design, size, and features.
The type of mattress also affects its price. Innerspring and all-foam mattresses, for example, typically cost less than hybrid models. However, this is not true in all cases and each mattress should have its unique features considered.
