What we do

Mattress brands are competing for your attention. It can be overwhelming to decipher the main differences and choose the right one. We make it simple.

We sort through online chatter, filtering noise from fact. Then, we turn it into mattress reviews and guides, so you can compare choices and pick the best for you. All information we share has been collected from real customers, expert opinions, and unbiased data. Our straightforward approach empowers your decision making, so you can find the right mattress no matter your sleeping position.

You’re our first priority, so all of our advice is objective and relevant. We think fluff is best used in mattresses.

Who We Are

Olivia Williams : Senior Editor
Olivia Williams

A mother of 3 that was challenged with poor sleep.  Having a hectic life and starting to notice her children falling into the same poor sleep patterns, she started to research the best beds to optimize the sleep experience.  Having visited 7 stores in 2017 she was so frustrated with the high sales pressure and COMPLETE lack of science-based knowledge when asking for answers.  She set out to create an online forum where a frustrated sleeper or parent could come and get straight answers with zero pressure.

Olivia’s studies in Physics and Mechanical Engineering at Australian Catholic University have served her well as she navigates the misinformation and outright lies that the mattress and bedding market publishes.

Aurora Martin has lived her whole life in Newcastle. She enrolled in Victoria University to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Nursing. It has been her passion since she was a child. That’s when she decided she wanted to help people cure with ease.

However, she has always faced issues with sleeping all through her childhood. It was only recently that she and her family understood the reason for her disturbed sleep was the mattress and not any medical condition. 

Having a background in healthcare, when she started searching for a good mattress for herself, she was totally shocked to see a lack of science-based knowledge amongst the sellers. Most of her questions went unanswered. That is when she decided to offer the best reviews that helped people understand about sleep habits. 

She individually tries out the mattresses and comes out with an honest review which is backed up by her strong knowledge in the healthcare sector. Aurora Martin has changed the way people sleep for the better through her reviews and write-ups

Julia Thompson :  Editor

Julia Thompson is a successful lawyer from Melbourne and a mother of two. She was frustrated due to her 8-year-old son’s lack of sleep when she decided to leave no stone unturned in knowing the cause. Due to her son, she used to have several sleepless nights in a month. She got her son tested for all kinds of health ailments that could cause sleep disposition, until one day while making her son’s bed she had a thought. ‘What if the mattress was faulty?’ This thought triggered her to conduct a mattress survey. 

Being a resident of Melbourne, she visited almost all the mattress sellers in learning about the types of mattresses in the market. She gathered thorough mattress-related information from the web as well. That is where she got answers to all her questions. From there on she formally became a mattress reviewer. Through her reviews, she started mentioning the kinds of mattresses available, which mattress to choose for particular health ailments, pros and cons related to the mattresses, and so on. Ever since Julia has been a mattress inspirer and a guide for many common people.

How We Work

Our team at Betterbed cares about credibility, which is why we do extensive research to compile each mattress review and comparison. To make these resources free for you—and to keep our team running—we partner with affiliates and advertisers. These partnerships bring in revenue through links on our website.

Some affiliates compensate us for sending them new customers, while others pay for advertisements on our website. If you enjoy our content and make a purchase, we may receive payment. However, we never let our partnerships affect the integrity of our content. While we may place links at certain points within a review, we will never compromise the information or ratings shared. To mitigate bias, our editorial team is kept unaware of our partnerships (sorry, team!). And they take pride in researching and writing reviews.

If you find Betterbed helpful, support us by buying our recommended products (via our on-page links). Otherwise, you can head straight to the mattress brand’s website to sidestep any affiliate links. No matter your preference, we’re happy to help you find the perfect mattress. Sleep tight.
