I want to buy a bed and since stores are all closed I can't try them out and I'm thinking of buying a mattress online.

Anyone have any experience with a mattress in a box or bag. It seems most of them are memory foam mattresses which I'm not sure I'm crazy about because they retain heat. Thinking I want a hybrid.

Looking at Saatva, Brooklyn Bedding, and Dreamcloud. Saatva is delivered in it's normal form, the others seem to be boxed.

Any suggestions?

We got a purple and love it. Don’t bring your old mattress to the curb right away though. They mean it when they say you need to let it “inflate” for a day.

Got a hybrid for wayfair. Was around $400 for a king and I’m on year 3 and it’s held up perfectly. If you sleep hot it might not be the bed for you though. It sleeps a little warm.

I'm looking too. Saatva and winkbed were at the top of my list. I'm a larger sizes guy with a memory foam mattress. Not for me, just 3 years in and we want to replace it.

Purchased a Purple in the fall and love it. My wife had nothing but trouble sleeping while pregnant and slept like a baby for the week we had it prior to giving birth. She still loves it and does not complain about back pain anymore.

Have a Sleep Innovations Marley. It's good. Cheap too. Highly rated in consumer reports.

We've got one of the original Tempur-Pedic memory foam mattresses. It's probably 20 years old and still more comfortable that what's in most high-end hotels. But it's time to replace it, so I'm interested in where this goes.

The Purple mattresses seem gimmicky, but seem to get pretty good reviews.

It does sound gimmicky but some people swear by them. I would like to try one out.

Bought a Saatva awhile ago and was never wowed with it. I think there are better options.

I have the Leesa hybrid (tempurpedic but has some inner springs for support). I definitely recommend it. Started sleeping deeper as soon as we got it. It comes boxed.

Leaning towards the Bear Hybrid. Has anyone tried it?

Any other suggestions in the $1000-$1500 range?

Look no further than Zinus (although I got a memory foam, you can probably get other kinds)

I ordered on Amazon, mid-quarantine in April, because I moved and needed a new bed/mattress quickly. Both the mattress and bed frame were on my doorstep 2 days after I ordered. Easy set up, quality mattress. Only positives so far. Very happy with the memory foam.

The highest rated mattress by consumer reports is the Avocado green. $1400 for queen size I think. Casper hybrid Is the second highest rated by consumer reports. About the same price. Casper also has a much more expensive model called the wave that has not been tested by cr. I believe Casper has a 100 day money back warranty.

I bought a Sterns and Foster 5 or 6 years ago. Very disappointed in it and it was expensive. I bought a mattress from Lisy’s Furniture in New Haven. Very reasonable inner coil mattress with plush top. Tremendously comfortable and much cheaper the the mattresses stores or large furniture stores. Store is worth checking out !

what’s good about it? We’re in the market.
Bought this mattress because it was a top choice for back and side sleepers, which me and my wife are. I will have to say reviews were correct. Mattress doesn't get too hot as some other memory foams do. Overall a very comfortable bed, has firm but soft feel. Mattress Firm sells them at their stores as well. You can go and try when they open, that's what we did.
