At some point in every bro’s life he realizes that a good mattress is not just a luxury, but a necessity. I mean, life’s hard enough without having to try to sleep on a bed of nails every night, coils popping through your worn-out mattress to torture you when all you want is to rest your poor aching body. It’s no good, man. And that’s why you need a killer mattress. A nice, soft – but not too soft – killer mattress.
Of course, no one wants to pay thousands of dollars for a mattress. So, you need a good mattress at a reasonable price. Let’s set the limit at, say, $360, and just to make this easy, we’ll use a full-size mattress as a standard size. You can customize up or down as you need once you click through, but in order to do all of that, you’re gonna need to read through this oh so helpful list of the 15 best mattresses you can buy for under $400.
At twelve inches, this mattress is Kardashian thick. Now, I’m not promising that this will be like laying your cares to rest in the sweet nook of your favorite Instagram model’s ass, but I will promise that the 3.5” of memory foam on top of 8.5” of high density foam will let you sleep well enough to at least dream of that sweet, sweet thickness.
This mattress has three different foam layers, a 1.5” gel-infused memory foam top layer, a 1.5” egg shaped foam layer underneath, and a 5” polyurethane foam base for support. All this adds up to eliminate pressure points, which should keep you comfortable all-night long. It also has an antimicrobial cover, so you can keep your bed free of germs.
This mattress is interesting because it’s not quite memory foam, and it’s not a traditional spring mattress either. It’s a foam core topped with a nearly 1” thick quilting layer. The upside to all this? It’s a bit softer than most memory foam mattresses, which makes it ideal for anyone who just wants to sink into their bed every night.
It’s just 6 solid inches of memory foam, without any added frills, which is ideal for anyone who needs a mattress that isn’t going to take up a ton of room, but which will still give you tons of comfort. The foam itself is also resistant to dust mites, and is antimicrobial, so you don’t have to worry about your bed eating you.
Multiple layers of memory foam help make this mattress comfortable. But, the real lure is the 1” gel infused top layer, which is designed to disperse your body heat so that the mattress stays nice and cool all night long.
This 8” mattress gives you 6” of memory foam topped with 2” of that temperature regulating gel, which is a pretty kickass combo. And, of course, it’s also antimicrobial and hypoallergenic and all that good stuff.
This mattress is actually a hybrid of memory foam and a traditional spring mattress, which is perfect for those who don’t want to leave that familiar spring mattress behind. The 1.5” of memory foam gives you the body support you need, while the traditional spring support underneath gives you’re a sense of flexibility that you might not get from solid memory foam mattresses. And hey, you’re not gonna find a better bed for the price.
Speaking of hybrids, this one is an absolute monster. At 13” it packs enough for almost two beds, with over 5” of memory foam on top of a 7.5” spring base. It also has that temperature regulating gel foam layer. Add it all up, and you get what Olee calls “weightless sleep.”
12” of memory foam is pretty tough to beat, especially when a couple of those 12” include cooling gel. But maybe the best thing about this mattress? It’s price.
With four layers of foam, each designed to add something specific to the quality of your sleep, this thick mattress will ensure that you get the rest you need. But, intriguingly, this mattress is also infused with Green Tea extract and Castor Seed Oil, which naturally keep your mattress free of both odor and bacteria.
And now for something a little different. This is actually a portable, foldable mattress, which you can throw down anywhere you go, from the floor of a tent to the floor of your bro’s living room. And the best part is that it’s an actual foam mattress, not an air mattress that will deflate as the night goes on. It’s 4” of memory foam that will more than do the job for a couple of nights. Or longer.
With three layers of memory foam, this mattress is marketed as feeling “like you are floating on a cloud.” That’s all well and good, but perhaps more convincing is that this mattress is not only one of the highest rated on Amazon, it’s maintained that high rating even with over 5,000 customer reviews, which means you’re pretty much guaranteed to love this mattress.
This mattress is designed to mimic a high-end luxury hotel bed, and ticks all the boxes, from multiple layers of memory foam, to a cooling layer, to an antimicrobial and hypoallergenic surface to even a 20-year warranty. This bed has it all, and when you order they’ll even throw in a free queen-size luxury pillow.
This 10” mattress is comfortable enough as just a regular bed, with a hybrid foam/coil design that gives you the best of both worlds. But, what really sets it apart is that it’s specially designed to be used in campers, trailers, RVs and trucks, meaning this is the mattress you need if you plan on doing any sleeping on the road. Don’t sacrifice comfort. Make your RV or trailer feel like home with this mattress.
This mattress has it all – a four-layer memory foam design, cooling gel, 20-year warranty, etc. – but what makes it the king of mattresses is that while it’s a kickass mattress all on its own, it’s specially designed to work with an adjustable base, which is the height of bed luxury. You’re not gonna find a better mattress for the price for just a regular old base. Add in its ability to adjust (you have to buy an adjustable base separately) and you have a mattress that puts the rest to shame.
