Top 5 Queen Size Mattress for 2021 | Best Queen Size Mattress for 2021

Queen mattresses are the most popular mattress size on the market, so no matter your preferred mattress type or sleeping style (stomach sleeper, side sleeper, back sleeper or those elusive combination sleepers), there are some really great options out there if you’re looking for the best queen mattress.

However, shopping for a mattress online can be intimidating with overwhelming options, from memory foam to latex, hybrid and innerspring, it can be difficult to know which is the best mattress type for you. 

Here’s where to start: You want something that promotes proper spine alignment, provides pressure relief, prevents back pain and makes for a comfy sleeping surface. I’ve also made things easier for you by testing out mattresses from each top mattress brand myself and rounding up the best queen mattresses out there.

Whether you prefer a firm mattress, a medium-firm mattress or a soft mattress (if you’re a stomach sleeper, for instance), you’ll find the best queen mattress for a good night’s sleep below.

1) Layla Hybrid

Type: Flippable hybrid memory foam mattress
Firmness: Firm: 5 or medium | Soft: 3 or medium-soft
Trial: 120 nights 
10-year limited warranty
Price (queen): $1,699 

The Layla Hybrid is really like two mattresses in one. It has a soft side and a firm side, so you can customize your sleeping experience based on how you’re feeling at the time. It’s made of a layered combination of gel memory foam, airflow support foam and an individually wrapped pocketed coil system that provides plenty of support while also allowing enough give to make the mattress feel plush and comfortable right away. 

This hybrid mattress also has a middle memory foam layer that’s made from copper-infused memory foam that’s designed to disperse heat and keep you cool while you sleep. And this memory foam mattress layer works. Even in the middle of the summer, the queen mattress felt cool to the touch. You know that feeling you get when you slide into a cool bed with freshly washed sheets? You get that with this mattress type almost every time.

2) Tuft and Needle Hybrid

Type: Poly foam hybrid 
Firmness: Medium or 5
Trial: 100 nights 
10-year limited warranty
Price (queen): $1,695

The Tuft and Needle Hybrid mattress is made of stacked layers of carbon fiber foam, individually wrapped pocketed coils and ceramic cooling gel. The layers are wrapped in a tufted pillow-top mattress cover that adds an extra comfort layer and “give” that’s ideal for side sleepers, but works well for any sleeping position. I felt equally comfortable on my side (my preferred sleeping position) and my back.

A standout feature is that the foam layers are constructed of T&N Adaptive foam, a proprietary blend that’s designed to move with your body and give the right amount of softness without any of the sink you get from other memory foam mattresses. The mattress was highly responsive when I changed positions during the night so my body felt supported and properly cradled, rather than stuck in the memory foam.

3) Nectar Premier

Type: Memory foam mattress
Firmness: 5 or medium
Trial: 365 nights
Warranty: Forever warranty
Price (queen): $1,299

The Nectar Premier mattress is the follow-up to the discontinued Nectar Lush mattress, and it provides a similar memory foam feel that, after a few moments, contours around the curves of your body. It’s not quite as soft as Nectar Lush, but it does offer a nice, pressure relief feel around your hips and shoulders that almost makes you feel weightless. 

This Nectar mattress is designed with four layers including a gel-infused memory foam comfort layer and a quilted cooling cover. The cover might not be ice-cold, but it should really help most sleepers sleep more temperature neutral and comfortable throughout the night

4) Helix Plus

Type: Memory foam hybrid mattress
Firmness: 7 or medium-firm 
Trial: 100 nights 
15-year limited warranty
Price (queen): $1,449

The Helix Plus is marketed toward heavier sleepers, but it’s one of the best queen size mattresses for sleepers of any body shape and size. Like all Helix mattresses, the mattress material is a combination of memory foam and Helix dynamic foam.

An adaptive memory foam that quickly reacts to your body when you move — but it also has an additional layer of four-pound memory foam that supports people with higher BMIs. At 13 inches tall, it’s thicker than most standard mattresses, so the queen size feels like a bigger mattress size without taking up extra space in your bedroom.

The Helix Plus felt supportive, while providing the right amount of “give” to offer pressure relief for my shoulders and hips and allowing me to sink into this mattress in all of the best ways. It also had more bounce than some of the other hybrid mattresses I tried, but was still surprisingly good with isolating motion – a combo I really enjoyed.

5) Sperser 12 Inch Queen Bed

Type: Hybrid mattress
Firmness: Medium to medium-firm or 6
Trial: 100 nights
Warranty: 10-year limited warranty
Price: $529

I’m here to tell you that all of the good things you’ve heard about the Purple mattress are true. It’s comfortable and supportive and I felt like I was sinking in without getting stuck, something that’s harder to accomplish with memory foam. While the Purple Grid – a Hyper-Elastic Polymer grid formation with open channels — does take some getting used to (especially if you’re coming from a different mattress type like a 100% memory foam mattress), it’s beyond worth it in the end. 

The grid felt more adaptive than other types of mattresses. No matter what sleeping position I was lying in, the Purple mattress hugged and cradled my body like it was designed just for me. It’s also extremely breathable, it’s one of the best cooling mattresses on the market without a cooling cover or special cooling technology in the construction.
