Best Mattresses of 2023: Best Memory Foam Mattress

Why you'll love it

Our foam is a little different

Essential to our mattresses, T&N Adaptive foam was created based on customer feedback to provide pressure relief where you need it most. The open-cell structure offers a flexible sleep surface that responds and adjusts with you.

A cooler, more comfortable sleep

A lower body temperature will help you sleep better and longer. The Original sleeps cool thanks to cooling gel, heat-wicking graphite, and the breathable construction of our Adaptive foam.

Easy compatibility

The Original is designed to be compatible with most frames, including: traditional frames, box springs, platform frames, slatted frames, bunkie boards, and adjustable frames. So no need to worry about any special requirements.

Do I need to flip or rotate my mattress?

We recommend rotating your T&N mattress every 6 months, but there's no need to flip the mattress as the foam core has been designed to have a specific top and bottom. Always keep the zippered side down for optimal comfort. Want to learn more? Check out our blog article, here.

How long can the mattress stay boxed?

Generally speaking, we recommend setting up the mattress within 3-4 weeks of receiving it. Unrolling it as soon as you can helps relieves the pressure that compression puts on the foam, and leaving it compressed for longer could potentially damage the mattress.If you choose to leave the mattress in the box for more than a week, keep in mind it may take a little longer to expand to the proper shape/size since it's been compressed for longer than usual (you can still start using it within 2-3 hours of unboxing!) and your 100-Night Sleep Trial starts on the date of delivery by default.If you are unable to unbox the mattress within the recommended timeframe, please reach out to our support team as soon as possible to discuss alternative shipping options, including delaying delivery.

Do Tuft & Needle Mattresses use flame retardant chemicals or fiberglass?

Most mattresses that contain fiberglass use it in their fire barrier. Our Original, Mint, and Hybrid Mattresses do not contain fiberglass in any of their components. Our fire barrier is a knit blend of polyester and cotton, which has been treated with a food-grade salt. Our fire barrier satisfies both the 1633 (open flame) and 163 (cigarette) burn test requirements.

Just got a second home and this is the second T&N I have bought. Bought my first one 7 years ago and didn’t even consider another brand when I needed a new one for the new house. So darn comfy!!
