How we review mattresses

Buying a mattress is a big investment—both financially and health wise. And as any mattress shopper knows, it’s hard work. Memory foam, latex, innerspring, pocket-spring. What does it all mean?

Betterbed makes it simple. We sort through online chatter, filtering noise from fact. Then, we combine our crowdsourced opinions into mattress reviews so you can pick the best for you. All the information we share has been collected from real customers, expert advisors, and public data. You're our first priority. All of our data is objective and relevant. We think fluff is best used in mattresses.

To choose the mattresses we review, we first looked to the broader Australian mattress market. We then focused in on mattresses you can buy online (commonly known as mattresses in a box). From there, we gathered data on popular mattress brands, including customer feedback, trial length, quantity of reviews, pricing, company history and warranty information.

The data points we combined and rated on a relative weighted scale (from 1-5) comprising of four main categories: user ratings, popularity, trial length and affordability. All the individual category scores were then summed to create an overall meta-rating for each mattress brand.

Using objective data to inform our research, we looked deeper into each mattress brand. We created individual mattress reviews based on customer testimonials, sleeper ratings, and construction information.

For each mattress brand, we answered the following questions: How does it feel to sleep on? What’s it made from? Will it stand the test of time? How much does it cost? Is the price comparable to other mattresses on the market? Who’s it best for?

To bring it all together, and make your life easier, we summarised the answer to all of these questions into one succinct paragraph at the beginning of each mattress review.
