Who knew that shopping for a mattress online could be so tough?
I've been putting off getting a new mattress for quite some time now.
Our old one is probably 10 years old or more – and it was time.
Every morning I'd wake up a little bit stiff and achy but the chore of picking out something new seemed like a huge task that I did not want to do.
Once upon a time, I would go to the mattress store in town, try out a few models and we were done.
But now, there are so MANY choices of “bed in a box” mattresses online, that I really didn't know where to start.
If you are in the market for a new mattress, I'll tell you what I picked and why – and give you a big list of online mattress choices where you can poke around to find something that will work for you.
The Mattress That I Chose
Ultimately, I ended up ordering the king size Layla Sleep Hybrid mattress.
The mattress came with some bonuses:
- memory foam pillows
- mattress protector
- sheet set
I decided on this particular mattress because it:
- combined memory foam with traditional coils
- is “flippable” with one side being a soft side and the other being more firm, and
- the online reviews that I found were favorable
As for the bed frame and base, I went with the Layla brand because I felt that it was designed to support that mattress.
I picked the frame and mattress base combination because you can attach a headboard to the frame if you choose to do so.
Stay tuned for my full review of the Layla Sleep Hybrid Mattress and foundation.

What is the Best Online Mattress Company?
Honestly, the answer depends on what you are looking for and the decision isn't easy.
Each company makes a range of mattresses – from all foam to hybrid models.
Some mattresses are organic, some are designed for athletes, and others stand out for their affordability.
When making a big purchase like this, what I look for first is always good customer service.
If the company is responsive and the representatives are helpful then that gives me confidence that any concerns I have with my order will be addressed.
Along those lines, it is nice to find an online mattress company that offers a generous trial period and free returns – since you are buying the bed sight unseen.
Finally, read the reviews and ask around for recommendations from friends and family who may have also purchased a mattress online.
Best of luck with your mattress shopping. I hope this list helps you out!
