When you get a chance, check out the "How to Eat Clean and Live Healthy" issue of CR. They rate mattresses and their findings are interesting. I'd love to know what you think about their top choices.

Hi AmyPink,

You can see some comments about the Consumer Reports mattress ratings and recommendations in post #2 here and in this topic . While they may be a good source of information about more "objective" purchases ... as you can see I (and most knowledgeable people in the industry) would consider them to be an unreliable source of information or guidance about purchasing a mattress.

What is nice to see is that Casper and TN are pick number 3 and 4 in the memory foam category. Not sure if that's a change from previous years. It's disappointing to see that Serta is #1, especially since my MU "education". Makes me further question their credibility, as this is not the first time their recommendations have conflicted with personal findings.

What's strangest of all is that neither Tuft & Needle or Casper are even a memory foam mattress in the first place. Tuft & Needle doesn't have any memory foam at all and Casper only has 1.5" of memory foam in the middle layer which isn't enough to legitimately put it into the memory foam category.

The Consumer Reports mattress guides do a disservice to the public. Taking a handful of mattresses and "rating" them in terms, many of which don't accurately assess durability, isn't the proper approach. Instead, they should educate people about componentry, quality, assembly and how to compare products. It would be an easy enough article to write. With thousands of choices available, people take a look at these reviews on a limited few items and are herded like cattle to more familiar brands while missing out on products that use higher quality materials and are made better. I review these Consumer Reports bedding guides here .
