In a time of unprecedented uncertainty, a good night’s sleep – in all of its mental and physical health-boosting glory – is more important than ever before.
Sure, a reliable bedtime, meditation app, or dose of melatonin can help your deep-sleep cause, but a successful sleep really comes down to your mattress.
The “bed-in-a-box” concept has switched up the sleep game by making it easier than ever for sleep-seekers to purchase a new mattress – no car or ensuing hassle required.
Whether you’re a side sleeper, restless sleeper, or sweaty sleeper, eco-conscious Canadian brand GoodMorning.com makes mattresses for every bedroom, body, budget and sleep style. If you don’t know what type you are, they can help. The bed-in-a-box company offers a thorough process, through an online “Mattress Matchmaker” quiz that determines the best mattress for you.
It’s important to remember that any new mattress often takes time to ease into, so allow yourself a minimum of 30 nights to fall in love with the new addition to your bedroom. The mattress naturally needs to reset, as it was neatly and compactly compressed for shipping. For this reason, GoodMorning.com offers a 120-night sleep trial for guaranteed satisfaction.
Here are three of our top GoodMorning.com mattress picks…
GoodMorning.com’s Douglas Cooling Gel Foam Mattress is a medium-firm mattress that offers a harmonious balance of support (not too hard; not too soft), comfort, and pressure point relief for all sleeping positions. The historically hot, sweaty sleepers will appreciate the mattress’ Douglas CoolSense® cover, a removable (and easily washable) knitted cover with a moisture-wicking, eucalyptus-derived fabric blend.
Helping you out further in the ‘keeping dry’ department, the mattress’ Elastex® foam offers surface-wide comfort and balanced support throughout the mattress, with latex-like responsiveness and pressure relief – minus the loathed chemical-filled latex. The mattress offers excellent spinal alignment for side sleepers, balanced support for back sleepers, and ample pressure-point relief for stomach sleepers.
Accounting for the (very annoying) possibility of your partner’s sleep habits and shifts affecting your own sleep, the Douglas also eliminates motion transfer between sleepers thanks to its motion isolation support foam. The bottom layer mimics the effect of millions of tiny pocketed-coil springs providing customers with extensive full-body support throughout the night.
The verdict: This versatile mattress checks all the boxes as a well-rounded option for all types of sleepers. Priced at $749 CAD for a Queen, it’s also more affordable than other all-frills-attached GoodMorning.com options, but still gets the job done.
For those with a perpetual taste for the upper-tier option, the GoodMorning.com Apollo Premium Copper Hybrid Mattress is the most innovative and feature-rich mattress the brand has ever created. This medium-firm mattress is all about layers, with each one offering a function to ensure the best sleep. You can literally feel the PolarMAX™ Cooling Cover working; cool to the touch, its high-grade upholstery wicks away moisture. Meanwhile, the high-density CopperGel™ Memory Foam keeps you cool, with micro-gel beads and antimicrobial copper. An additional layer of memory foam – the high-performance 5G Open-Call Memory Foam – offers exceptional pressure point relief, featuring an open-cell structure to encourage airflow.
The mattress’s layer of adaptive steel micro-coils contour to every inch of your body, while forming a central breezeway for thermal regulation. Finally, Apollo’s seven-inch dual-layer high-density support foam performs when it comes to motion isolation and head-to-toe support. Accounting for a range of living spaces and bed frames, the Apollo is available in six sizes.
The verdict: This mattress is undoubtedly the creme de la creme of mattresses, offering a contouring, womb-like comfort. With that said, it holds a $1249.00 price tag, but is worth every penny for a superior night’s rest.
Logan & Cove
Offering a premium mix of motion-isolating pocketed coils and cushioning memory foam, the popular Logan & Cove Luxury Hybrid Pillow-Top mattress is available in two firmness options – “Luxury Firm,” or “Medium Plush.” The mattress delivers cooling comfort, cushioned and cradling contouring, and robust support. The appreciated result is one of the calmest sleeps you’ve ever had.
The six-layer Logan & Cove features the quilted Tencel® Cover, which wicks away moisture with its breathable, tufted fabric. Meanwhile, the temperature-regulating silk-blend layer is lightweight and keeps cool air circulating as you sleep. Also keeping the over-heaters cool, is a layer of gel and bio foam, which works to contour your body and increase airflow by dissipating heat through adaptive air channels. Because one layer of cooling gel isn’t always enough, an additional layer offers relaxation by alleviating pressure points across your body.
Ensuring both you and your partner enjoy an optimal sleep (and don’t wake up grumpy), two layers of soy-infused foam eliminate motion transfer. Additionally, hundreds of high-grade pocketed coils also reduce motion transfer along three precision support zones, wrapped in robust edge support foam for full-surface sleeping.
The verdict: This versatile mattress makes the most sense for a range of sleepers thanks to its jam-packed features, price point (it falls in the middle of the three, at $999 for a Queen), and firmness options. If you’re looking for a lasting investment in a home – or bed – this is it.
Whatever option you choose, each GoodMorning.com mattress is as easy on the eyes as it is functional.
