Warts and all, mattress reviews that you can trust

In line with our mission to bring you the most honest advice and recommendations you can trust, we act as a review aggregator for the mattress industry — our mattress reviews are based on the aggregate findings of many customers and professional mattress testers who actually put each mattress through its paces.

We let the reader make up their own mind

We’ll never recommend any mattress as a sure thing for everybody — we understand that what makes a good mattress is subjective. So we make recommendations based on trends in the findings of customers and testers but always leave the decision up to our readers; we’ll never push a mattress dishonestly just for a commission.

Why You Can Trust OptimumSleep

We value the trust of our readers. And we actively try to earn it.

We’re in the sleep game for the long run, which is why you won’t find us providing generic advice based on myths and pseudoscience, and why we don’t accept incentives from manufacturers to review their mattresses favorably.

Remaining independent to retain your trust lies at the core of our values, and growth strategy.

At OptimumSleep:

  • We’re driven by fact, not opinion.
  • Our guides and advice are backed by science, reviewed, and contributed to by our panel of qualified sleep experts.
  • We don’t have cozy relationships with manufacturers or retailers, and we don’t accept kickbacks or incentives to review a product favorably.
    We call things as we see them, and brands can’t buy their way to the top of our rankings.
  • We know the comfort and suitability of mattresses are very subjective, which is why our mattress reviews aggregate the findings of multiple professional mattress testers and the opinions of real customers.
