UGGs Can Be Terrible for Your Feet—Here Are 7 Pairs That Are Nearly Identical and Have a Podiatrist’s Approval

Snuggly *and* arch-friendly.

Let’s take a moment to appreciate that we now live in a world where you can have a mattress in a box delivered right to your doorstep in a few business days. Gone are the days of going to the mattress store, scheduling a delivery, and waiting 3-4 weeks for your mattress to be made and set up; now, a good night’s sleep is a click away. Even better, there’s virtually no assembly. You just open the box, let the mattress expand, and hit the hay.

With hundreds of mattress-in-a-box brands out there, finding your perfect sleepytime companion can get a bit tricky. There are a ton of factors to consider—your go-to sleep position, preferred level of firmness, and whether or not you sleep alone or with a partner (or pet), just to name a few. Layer on logistics, like budget, trial period, and warranty, and picking the bed of your dreams can quickly turn into a nightmare (or at least feel like it!)

The best mattresses in a box, at a glance:

Rather than hitting “snooze” on shopping for a new mattress altogether, scroll down and shop our guide to the best mattresses in a box. There’s a model for every budget, comfort level, and sleep style just waiting to be unboxed in your bedroom. Sweet dreams!

Most comfortable: Nectar Premier Copper Mattress (Queen) — $1,695.00

Type: gel memory foam

Crafted with precision, this mattress boasts a multi-layered design that includes a gel memory foam top layer for superior contouring and pressure relief.

“Overall, I love this mattress—it’s soft but firm enough that you don’t wake up with a sore back,” says W+G design director, Jenna Gibson. “I also run hot while sleeping, but its copper tech is really cool to the touch, and I can definitely feel the cool down throughout the night.” W+G’s senior commerce editor agrees, noting that the mattress helped alleviate lower back pain she’s had for years. “The price, setup, and comfort factor are unbeatable,” she notes.

  • Exceptional comfort
  • Easy to set up
  • Temperature regulation
  • High-quality, safe construction
  • Extra-generous trial and warranty

For sleepers who prefer a little extra support, you can’t go wrong with the Scott Living Lumbar Support Hybrid Mattress.

This innovative design ensures optimal spinal alignment, alleviating pressure on your lower back and promoting a truly restful sleep experience.

On the comfort front, each mattress combines the contouring comfort of memory foam with the responsive bounce of an individually wrapped coil—aka, it’s perfectly balanced between plush and firm.  Plus, it’s less than $1,000, making it a great buy for those on a budget.

In terms of comfort, Gold says it feels like the perfect combination of supportive and plush thanks to the coils and foam. Its advanced cooling technology ensures a refreshing and temperature-regulated sleep surface, promoting uninterrupted rest.

The only caveat is it is more plush than other mattresses: “It’s very bouncy, which I love, but I know anyone looking for a super-firm mattress wouldn’t appreciate,” Gold says.

Best coil mattress: Parachute, Eco Comfort Mattress (Queen) — $2,400.00

Construction: coils

Trial period: 100 nights

Delivery: free ground shipping

Unlike many (if any) other bed-in-a-box offerings on the market right now, Parachute’s model uses just coils—but that doesn’t mean it feels like sleeping on a springy, pokey, firm-as-a-board type of mattress. Rather, it uses a combination of soft and firm pocket coils placed strategically (soft coils at the head and the foot of the mattress, and firm, supportive coils in the center), and another layer of micro coils that respond to tiny movements of the body (meaning it is reactive to you rather than the other way around). Then, there are the three layers of pure New Zealand wool separating the coil layers that promise comfort and support.

All of this comes together in what W+G’s Deputy Editor, Alexis Berger, calls as “Goldilocks of mattress firmness”: not too soft, not too hard, but just right.

Pros: 

  • Exceptional comfort
  • Easy set up
  • Supportive
  • High-quality, safe materials
  • Sustainably made
  • Generous trial and warranty

Cons: 

  • Expensive
  • Initial off-gassing
