How to choose the right mattress

An estimated 164 million Americans struggle with sleeping at least once a week, and many are searching for solutions in everything from mattresses to white-noise machines to sleeping pills.

Consumer Reports looked 45 mattresses and found it's a myth that expensive mattresses improve sleep and that spending over $1,000 on luxury mattress brands guarantees a good night's sleep.

Some of Consumer Reports' top recommendations include:

  • Best for $800 or less - Denver Matress $500 CR Best Buy
  • Best for hotties - Sealy Posturepedic $1,275 CR Best Buy
  • Best for couples - Sealy Posturepedic $1,275 CR Best Buy
