As per study conducted by National Sleep Foundation (NSF), more than 90% of the Americans are of the view that a mattress should be comfortable if you want to take proper rest. More than 20 million people have allergies associated with bed bugs and dust. A new mattress can resolve all these issues to a large extent as it is proved by the results of a study in 2009. According to the reports of CNN and WebMD, the figure mentioned above is also confirmed along with the fact that these mites and bugs initiate various skin allergies and asthma among people.

Despite the high percentage, most people continue to use their old mattress, merely because they do not want to spend any further money. We have prepared this comparison roundup of affordable brands including Saatva, GhostBed and Purple.

So without further ado let’s begin with the brief introduction of the brand!

Saatva

The innersprings mattresses have 85% overall customer satisfaction which is the best in this roundup. It is excellent when we talk about edge support and sex. While its performance is excellent regarding durability, motion isolation, ease of rotation. However, due to the coils, it makes plenty of noise.

GhostBed

GhostBed turns out to be the winner of this roundup with a wide lead over its competition and an overall satisfaction rating of 82%. It has shown good results associated with durability, motion isolation, conformance, off-gassing, and maneuverability. Nevertheless, it does have some issues concerning edge support and heat retention. It is best suited for lightweight stomach sleepers.

Purple

Purple has 79% overall satisfaction-rating from the customers. Their mattresses are great concerning motion transferability, conformance, heat-retention, and off-gassing. Purple mattresses don’t make any noise just like the other brands in this roundup. However, the mattress is not so good when it comes to edge support, again just like the previous entries in this post.
