Let’s face it – most Americans relish their Monday off for Labor Day weekend, which means most of them sleep in.
To make your night’s rest even more satisfying, we approved the decision to invest in a new mattress. What better way to use your luxury duvet cover and soft sheets to their full potential?
We’ve scoured the gamut of mattress brands — from Casper to Tuft & Needle — to bring you the only Labor Day mattress buying guide you’ll ever need. Even better, they’re all on sale.
So what are you waiting for? We’ve pulled sizes from twin to California King, as well as memory foam (and hybrid!) spring options. Whether you’re a hot sleeper or a cool sleeper, we think you should pick up a pair of women’s or men’s pajamas and get to catch those ZZZs in the most fabulous way possible.
As one of the most acclaimed mattresses on the market, the Casper Original 2022 mattress takes the cake for plush comfort and value. Its multi-zone support also helps keep your spine aligned, and you’ll love how its premium foam conforms to your body.
From Nest Bedding, the Sparrow Signature Hybrid Mattress is for sleepers who want a bit of both: coils and memory foam. This particular bed is breathable, cushioned, and low to the ground, so it’s especially great for a more modern bedroom aesthetic.
If you’re looking for a premium mattress, you can’t give up on the limited-edition Sleep Number 360 iLE smart bed. Some of its smart features include its ability to respond to your movements to adjust firmness in real time, its data-based display of your sleep score (with personal insights on how to improve your sleep quality) and its cooling functionality.
Tuft & Needle’s original adaptive foam mattresses are one of Amazon’s bestsellers — and thankfully, on sale this Labor Day. You will appreciate its anti-compression foam, its particularly ideal for people who sleep on their backs and stomachs and its reasonable price.
If affordability is a priority, we recommend looking at the Serta 7″ Cooling Gel Memory Foam Mattress. The bed-in-a-box design is super easy to assemble and great for comfort, thanks to its Foam Support Core technology providing edge-to-edge support.
6. Big Fig Mattress, $999-$2,399, original price: $1,399-$2,799
The Big Fig Mattress is one of our favorite direct-to-consumer brands because it’s inclusive, designed with a mission to support heavier and taller sleepers. Its traditional mattress is on sale for up to $300 and we appreciate its personalized charm.
The Lucid 10″ Hypoallergenic Memory Foam Bamboo Charcoal Mattress has a range of features for a model starting at just $161. Specifically, it has a dreamy gel memory foam top layer, temperature regulating design, and even helps improve circulation.
Get yourself a coveted luxury mattress this Labor Day with Dreamcloud’s Luxury Hybrid Mattress. It is designed for your best night’s sleep, thanks to its balance of springs and memory foam. Plus, it comes with a one-year sleep trial and a lifetime warranty in case anything goes wrong.
Everyone is talking about the Nectar memory foam mattress, probably because it cradles your body and helps keep you cool. Its sandwich-like design is also hard to beat: a quilted cooling cover, gel-infused memory foam, dynamic response split layer, stable base layer and shift-resistant bottom cover make it extremely durable and comfortable.
10. Purple Mattress, $699-$1,898, RP: $799-$1,998
Add color to your space with the purple mattress. However, more important than its color palette is its plush feel. The 2″ GelFlex Grid fabric targets your pressure points, while the Comfort Core makes the mattress less bouncy. As Hannah Montana would say, it’s “the best of both worlds”.
Green tea in a mattress just makes us want to. The Zinus 12″ Green Tea Luxe Memory Foam Mattress is nearly 40% off for Labor Day and is a brand new bed-in-a-box deal from Amazon that you won’t want to miss. Plus, its ActivCharcoal technology wicks away moisture to lock in unwanted sweat and odor.
Are you looking for an economical mattress purchase? We advise you to get the Swiss Ortho Sleep 12″ hybrid mattress. Its queen size is only $250 right now and it’s exactly what you need if you need it. Something to sleep (even if it’s really comfortable).
For lovers of gel-based memory foam mattresses: the Aquarius Olee Sleep 10″ memory foam mattress is for you. Its plush exterior makes you want to sleep on it at present and you won’t be disappointed in its queen size for less than $250.
Wrapped in soft organic cotton and wool, we’re confident this pick is Goldilocks approved. It just has that factor, especially for the integration of Dunlop latex support foam to help with back pain relief. Plus, its high-quality individual pocket springs are a nice touch.
If you like the feeling of being a little elevated, you’ll appreciate the Stearns and Foster Estate Hurston 14″ Luxury Firm Pillowtop Mattress. Although it’s a splurge, it’s definitely worth it if you’re into snoring, sleep apnea and back pain (just visit the site, you’ll be amazed).
