Although online mattress retailing has made mattress shopping a breeze, brands are beginning to realize the fact that it's one. It's a good idea Let people see and feel what they are buying, especially considering how personal the purchase of a mattress can be. After all, no one wants to be concerned with the return process, and the mattress return is no different. It is tedious to have someone deliver a mattress and then pack it back – even if the original purchase is "risk-free".
So if you want to buy a mattress online, but want to try IRL first, you have several options. Major retailers like Macy's, West Elm and Target are now selling popular online mattress brands in stores where you can try them out. Brands such as Casper, one of the largest (and earliest) providers of online mattresses, open stationary stores or showrooms where customers can try the mattresses before buying. And these innovative stores claim to be nothing like the traditional mattress vendors you once feared.
Below is an overview of eight popular online mattress brands that you can try. (For your information: Layla was one of the most well known brands that did not offer any of their mattresses in stores where you can try them.)
Casper is one of the original online mattress brands and one of the most popular. The company manufactures three types of hybrid foam mattresses ranging in price from $ 395 to $ 2,695.
The brand has recently started to open stores where you can try to buy their mattresses (and take them home the same day). Some target locations now carry Casper products, but you can not test Casper mattresses in most Target stores. You can also try Casper products at Raymour and Flanigan, where they are exhibited to test and buy.
Leesa manufactures two types of mattresses (a classic and a luxury model) and offers a generous 100-day trial period (although some brands now offer a trial period of up to one year). Like Casper, Leesa jumped into the stationary adventure car and now has "Dream Galleries" where you can try to buy the mattresses in selected cities. You can also buy Leesa mattresses in West Elm stores.
If you are looking for a mattress with excellent warranty and a long trial period, Nectar may be at the top of your list. The company offers a "perpetual" warranty and a 365-day trial. It's one of the easier online mattress brands to test IRL, as the mattresses are now stocked in 1,500 Nectar Sleep stores and various furniture and mattress stores across the country.
Purple is another popular brand that produces three different mattress styles (standard foam, hybrid and premium hybrid) and offers a standard 100-day trial period. Purple is primarily an online retailer and runs some mattresses in Macy's department stores as well as mattresses if you want to try one yourself.
Avocado Green is best used to make mattresses from organic and sustainable materials. Because of this, it's not the cheapest mattress out there (a standard queen mattress costs from $ 1,399). However, if you value sustainability and material quality, it may be worth picking the extra money.
The mattresses are latex hybrids with inner springs made of recycled steel. The company also applies its Made Safe certification (one of only three mattress brands), which means it is free of "all known suspected toxins, including fire retardants". Avocado Green has experience centers in selected cities where you can try the mattress before ordering online. It's good to note that the centers are essentially showrooms, not stores where IRL can be bought and taken home.
tuft and needle
Looking for an eco-friendly mattress that does not break the bank? Tuft & Needle is worth a look, especially if the Avocado Green mattress does not fit your budget. The mattresses are significantly cheaper than other leading online brands and are made of foam certified to CertiPUR-US. The materials are marked with a "Greenguard Gold" certificate. You can check the IRL mattresses in tuft and needle shops in selected cities or Lowes, Crate & Barrel, Interior Define and Balance.
