Sleep is sacred, so a bad mattress can make a good night's rest much harder to achieve. You can save on things like soft sheets and pillows that need to get replaced every so often, but when it comes to something as large as a mattress, you don’t want to cut corners. Wondering where to shop? Well, we found the best luxury mattresses for you to add to cart because you deserve to treat yourself.

It's better to invest now and save the aches and pains later. We’ve spent years researching and reviewing mattresses, so we’re a treasure trove of advice on which ones are the best to shop. We put together a handy guide ahead that'll help you customize your shopping experience, whether you prefer the support of a hybrid mattress or the cocooning softness of memory foam. When shopping for luxury mattresses, you can expect a price tag that exceeds $2,000, and you'll find with that higher price point often comes higher quality. Sure a bed-in-the-box from Amazon may seem like a good idea at first, if you pick the right one, but these mattresses are better for infrequent use, like in the guest bedroom, and will not hold up to years of use.

What separates luxury mattresses from others on the market too, are the attention to details. They often come with well-thought out designs: think layers of support in each mattress, from antibacterial copper-infused memory foam to one with a cushioned top that’s a side sleepers’ paradise. Excited to shop the best of the best? Scroll on to find the mattress of your (literal) dreams.

Rx Mattress

This Live Better Award-winning mattress has changed the way Deputy Digital Editor Katelyn Lunders sleeps. After sustaining a running injury and developing sciatica, she needed a more supportive mattress to achieve that pain-free snooze session. This mattress, in particular, is designed for sleepers struggling with chronic joint conditions, so it's plush enough to cradle but provides zoned lumbar support. The seven layers include more support in the center of the mattress to align your spine, a gel-infused memory foam to support the lower back, and micro-coils to relieve pressure points. All that body contouring led to quite the improvement in Lunders's sleep life and lower back pain.

Firmness: Supportive plush | Sizes: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, Split King, Cal King | Height: 15 inches | Trial Period: 1 year

Snow Max Mattress

This mattress is one of the best options on the market for regulating body temperatures. Casper has upgraded their editor-favorite Wave Hybrid Snow mattress to the Snow Max, but that same ultra-cooling power remains. The breathable Snow Technology includes memory foam that is a godsend for any night sweats.

In addition to a durable base of encased springs, there are three layers of memory foam for a soft, ergonomic sleep experience. One layer is coated in cooling material, one is composed of flexible graphite, and another is contoured to provide ergonomic support through the night.

RejuvenatePlus Mattress

This Purple mattress is one of the most plush our team has ever tested. Don't mistake its softness for lack of stability, though. During her test of the mattress, SEO editor Kate McGregor found it extra supportive for tossing and turning on restless nights. Plus, the quilted Euro top was actually cooling.

At a lofty 16.5 inches tall, the GelFlex grid and coils at the base provide dual layers of support. It's packed with so many layers that it's best to let the professionals handle the installation, so it's a good thing white glove delivery is free with purchase.

Classic Mattress

Saatva's luxury bedding excels in everything from mattresses to sheet sets, so it's a no-brainer that the brand's best-selling mattress made our list. It comes in a variety of heights, sizes firmness levels, so it's pretty customizable to however you sleep. No matter what you choose, you'll get supportive lumbar zoning, durable carbon-steel coiling, and a pillow top cushion that'll cradle you when you hit the sack after a long day. Go for plush soft if you want the mattress to cocoon you, or luxury firm if you and your partner just can't agree on firmness.

Evolution Mattress

The largest of Nolah's mattress offerings, the Evolution is a great pick for side sleepers because of the way it cradles pressure points on the body. Associate Shopping Editor Janae McKenzie tested the mattress for a month and was impressed by the supportive hybrid construction and seven layers of adaptive foam. She felt the cradling effect of the Euro topper even through layers of thick bedding and a mattress protector.

The Evolution is designed to keep heavier sleepers and side sleepers aloft, so it's great for those who hate sinking into a mattress and waking up with aches and pains. It also arrives roll packed and inflates quickly, so it's ready to sleep on delivery day.

Posturepedic Plus High Point Hybrid Mattress

"This mattress has been in my dreams since I tried it in a showroom last July," says McKenzie. "It was out of my budget at the time, which broke my heart because it was one of the best ones there by far. I nearly fell asleep on it in the store." Beyond the smooth, evenly balanced soft knit cover, what caught her attention the most about this mattress was the motion isolation. She'd gone mattress testing with her sister, and when her sister stood up she didn't notice at all. It felt as though two separate mattresses were pushed together, so for couples who sleep on different schedules (or levels of calm), it felt like a perfect solution.

Eco Mattress

For sleepers with a latex allergy, or just a desire for more organic materials in their mattress, this eco-friendly one from Parachute is a great alternative choice to memory foam mattresses. The Eco Mattress is crafted from alternating layers of pocketed steel coils and cozy New Zealand wool and 100 percent organic cotton. It has a medium firm construction, softer at the head and the feet for ease and firmer in the middle to support your back.

Elite Hybrid Mattress

Yet another Live Better Award winner, snagging the Bear Elite Hybrid for under $1500 is a steal. Get everything that makes for a quality sleep for less: high-density foam, a hand-quilted cushion cover, and antibacterial copper-infused memory foam. Edge-to-edge coils add to lumbar support, and the firmness levels range from a five to a seven on a one-to-ten scale. Reviewers report that even the firmest level still creates a comfortable night's sleep.

How We Selected the Best Luxury Mattresses

When we decided to gather the best luxury mattresses on the market, we had years of reviewing, testing and researching to fall back on. We combed through editor favorites, previous Live Better Award winners, and our trusted bedding retailers to find the best of the best. Price was also a factor here as there comes a point where paying a little more is worth the investment in terms of quality. All the mattresses on this list are over $2,000, with some currently on sale right now (so you'll want to take advantage of that!).

We also know that everyone's sleep is unique to their bodies and preferences, so we made sure to search for cooling mattresses to suit hot sleepers, motion-isolating ones for couples, and supportive ones for achey sleepers. In addition, we checked for extra special features like reinforced edge support, hypoallergenic materials and quilted tops, just to make sure your rest is as comfortable and tailored as possible.
