3 Under-the-Radar Mattress Companies We're Obsessed With

Check out these different approaches to giving you a good night’s sleep


There are a ton of mattresses available these days, and it’s hard to keep them straight. However, we’ve found some companies that are doing more than making memory foam mattresses that come in a box.

How about an eco-friendly online mattress made from sustainably harvested, organic materials? Or a mattress that started with resin fiber used for fishing line? Who knew, right?

In addition to their cool use of technology, we like these online mattresses because they offer cool, supportive sleep and give you plenty of nights to test the mattress to be sure it works for you.

The option preferred by athletes

Airweave promises to keep you cool and comfortable all night. The mattress was created by a Japanese engineer who was running a fishing line company and experimenting with different ways to use resin fiber.

The company uses a proprietary material it calls Airfiber that’s interwoven to create the mattress core. Airfiber evenly distributes your weight across the mattress and allows the air to flow around you, keeping you cooler and in a deeper, more restful sleep.

Airweave mattresses are firm, and that’s better if you have back problems. Studies by a Japanese orthopedic surgeon found that sleeping on an Airweave helps to maintain your natural posture as you rest, which can prevent lower back pain. Athletes, including the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Team, love it.

The firm mattress also makes it easier to roll over, so your sleep won’t be interrupted when you move, and the Airweave doesn’t transfer motion, so you won’t be bothered when your sleep partner moves, eigher.

You can choose from several styles of Airweave mattresses, including the Airweave Mattress Advanced that includes an optional soft layer, the flagship Airweave mattress, a futon mattress, and mattress toppers. The company offers a 100-night trial and free shipping.

The best eco-friendly option

Do you worry about sleeping on synthetic foams? Check out the Eco Terra mattress.

The Eco Terra mattress is made from sustainably harvested all-natural latex, along with organic wool and cotton. That should eliminate any concerns you might have about sleeping on polyurethane or encountering toxins or chemicals from your bed.

The natural materials are breathable and moisture wicking, so even the hottest sleepers won’t wake up in a sweat.

Along with the comfortable latex layer, the Eco Terra mattress has fabric-wrapped dynamic coils that respond to your weight and movement to provide perfect support for your spine all night long.

The Eco Terra mattress is available in medium and medium firm and comes in six sizes, from twin to California king. There’s no charge for shipping, and you get a 90-night trial and free returns.

The one with an extra cooling layer

Puffy is a memory foam mattress, but what sets it apart from all the other foam mattresses out there is its layer of Cooling Cloud memory foam that pulls the heat away from your body and allows way more airflow than the standard foam. Puffy infuses the foam with cooling gel to get up to eight times as much air flow.

Under the top layer of cooling foam, Puffy has additional layers to add to your comfort. These include a firm layer at the bottom to provide excellent body support for a good night’s sleep. The Lux version of the mattress also has a body-adapting layer that contours to your body and eliminates pressure points.

All this technology results in a mattress that keeps your spine aligned and relieves pressure no matter if you sleep on your side, back, or stomach. It’s also breathable and cool, so you sleep better all night.

Puffy comes with a stain-resistant, zippered cover you can wash, and you can try the mattress risk-free for 101 nights with free delivery and returns. That mattress works on any kind of frame or base, including a box spring or adjustable base.
