Customize your mattress with the Saatva Classic, which allows you to choose the right level of firmness for you. The most popular firmness level is the medium-firm offering, Luxury Firm, but you can also opt for Plush Soft or Firm. This mattress is chiropractor recommended, featuring Lumbar Zone technology, a pillow top that relieves muscle aches, and coils that respond to your body and movements. You'll also find it cooling, in part because of its breathable, hypoallergenic, organic cotton cover. For those sharing a bed, it's also a great option for two main reasons: The Luxury Firm finds a balance between comfort and support and the high-density foam rails offer edge support, which prevents edge sagging which can reduce a mattress' sleep surface.

This mattress was named the number mattress for achy backs by The Strategist, and was voted the best innerspring mattress by Wirecutter in 2021. It offers four firmness level options and features a Euro-pillow top with gel-infused foam, pocketed coils, and their Extra-Edge support system. The different layers work together to create a mattress that supports and contours to the body — the pillow top relieves muscle tension and the coils offer targeted back support. For those who share a bed, you'll also find relief in the motion isolation technology, which ensures that even if your partner tosses and turns, your sleep is not disturbed.

The DreamCloud Premier combines a memory foam mattress with an innerspring coil to cushion and contour while still offering ample support. It's composed of six layers, including a cashmere-blend cover, 2.5 inches of a memory foam pressure-relief comfort layer, a motion transfer support layer, and 8.5 inches of individually wrapped coils, which help keep you cool throughout the night. If you want a thick, medium-firm mattress that feels luxurious both to the touch and during a night's sleep, this is the mattress for you.

While this mattress might be on the higher end of the budget, you're getting increased quality for that extra money spent. The Helix Midnight Luxe is ideal for side sleepers and those who sleep more restlessly, with memory foam offering pressure point and hip and shoulder relief. It features zoned lumbar support with over 1,000 wrapped coils that "cradle your body," in turn protecting your lower back. For pressure relief, Helix uses high-density Memory Plus Foam, offering medium firmness. The six layers feature high-quality materials and a design intended to support your body, preventing backaches while providing body-contouring comfort.
