Best Adjustable Mattress for 2022

Here are the best adjustable mattresses to help you ditch the snoring, improve your circulation and increase your overall comfort.

In this article:

An adjustable mattress offers customizable sleep positions, and provides a ton of different benefits, including better circulation, reduced snoring and improved spine alignment to help you get a better night's rest. They can also help provide relief from acid reflux, as well as help with sleep apnea. And the best adjustable mattresses come with tons of other helpful features, including massage functions and a wireless remote that can elevate your head, knees or feet individually. With lots of people now working remotely, there's been a remarkable rise in the popularity of adjustable beds in recent years.

The most important features to look for in adjustable mattresses are those that encourage flexibility -- even the best adjustable bed frame can't accommodate a mattress that isn't meant to adjust. An adjustable mattress should bend where the adjustable bed base bends without too much resistance. Look for mattresses such as latex, foam, innerspring or hybrid mattresses that have individually wrapped or pocketed coils. They'll likely be compatible with an adjustable bed base. The ideal foam for an adjustable frame wouldn't be too high-density, though a multilayered arrangement could work.

Whatever your reason for making the switch, you'll find our top eight picks for the best adjustable mattress below. The prices listed are for queen sizes. Also, if you're looking to upgrade your entire sleeping situation and get a better night's rest, we can offer recommendations for the best sheets, pillows and more.

The Saatva Solaire adjustable mattress features certified eco-friendly foam, 100% natural Talalay latex, a top cover of organic cotton and a flame-retardant barrier of natural thistle pulp. 

With the Solaire, you can choose a standard mattress in seven sizes, or an Upper-Flex split-top variety in sizes, including queen, king size and California king, to let you and your sleep partner choose different head elevations. There's also a split king adjustable bed variety that's split entirely down the middle to allow the complete personalization of each side of the adjustable mattress. If you're interested in additional upgrades, you can add a frame with under-bed lights, massagers or an adjuster to raise the head. 

One especially great feature of the Solaire is that you can use the included remote adjustable bed controls to customize your own personal firmness level out of a possible 50 combinations. 

If you get confused, Saatva offers 24/7 "sleep guides" -- people you can call or chat with anytime you have questions about your mattress. You'll also get a 180-night sleep trial with the Solaire to see if it's a good fit. If you decide against the mattress, just call and have Saatva pick it up for a $99 transportation fee. 

The Solaire comes with convenient "white-glove setup" in the room of your choice, two remote controllers and free removal of your old mattress. The Saatva Solaire mattress weight capacity can hold 800 pounds on each side. The 25-year warranty covers the cost of parts and repairs for the first five years.

Following Tuft & Needle's popular Original mattress, the Mint mattress came along with plenty of upgrades. With the help of extra heat-wicking graphite and a layer of cooling gel, the Mint is likely to cool off even the warmest sleepers in the house. 

The Mint also contains three layers of adaptive foam for indulgent comfort, designed to give pressure relief to the shoulders and hips for a pain-relieving night's rest. Four inches of extra-firm foam at the bottom layer gives the Mint fortified edge support, keeping the sleeper snug and secure, and antimicrobial technology is woven into the cover.

As far as mattress base foundations are concerned, the Mint works well with most bed frames, including the adjustable variety. There's an adjustable bed frame at Tuft & Needle that the company designed to pair with the Mint mattress. 

The Tuft & Needle Mint mattress comes with a 100-night sleep trial, a 10-year limited warranty covering manufacturing and workmanship defects, free shipping and free returns.

The Cocoon Chill from Sealy is designed to work well with an adjustable bed frame, or a box spring, platform bed frame or slatted bed frame -- according to the company, they all work as long as the slats are a minimum of 3 inches wide and a maximum of 4 inches apart. It's also compatible with any of the Cocoon foundations, such as the recommended Sealy Ease Power Base.

Shoppers who use an adjustable bed for pressure relief are likely to experience some additional relief with the Chill. Its medium-firm constitution is foam-based with a transition layer to align the spine and prevent undue sinkage, as well as additional dual foam layers for comfort, personalized contouring and motion isolation. Even when paired with an adjustable base, the sturdy Chill maintains its shape.

Our favorite part of the Chill is the premium stretch knit cover, which uses the company's proprietary Phase Change Material to decrease heat retention. The cover "absorbs and dissipates heat," per Sealy, allowing for a cool and rejuvenating night's sleep.

The Purple mattress has become known for its convenient delivery in a box and its proprietary Purple Grid feature, a gridded layer that promises to keep the sleeper's hips and shoulders in a gentle contour while the spine is held in proper alignment. The Purple is also designed to hold less heat, last longer and provide a unique flexibility that's comfortable alone or with an adjustable bed frame. 

Purple Grid is also made with an enduring temperature-neutral, hyper-elastic polymer, much more stable than most forms of memory foam, which often allows the Purple mattress to outlast the lifespan of average mattresses -- and also allows the company to offer a full 10-year warranty. 

For shoppers who need a little extra support, there are Purple mattress bed frames to choose from, such as the Purple Power Base, which offers under-bed lighting, built-in USB charging ports and massage features. 

It's also noteworthy that some Purple customers have reported their back and joint pain has been alleviated after sleeping on a Purple Mattress. "To our pleasant surprise, aches and pains started going away within a couple of days! No more hurting at night," one reviewer noted. Read more in our full Purple mattress review.

The Purple mattress comes with a 100-night trial and free shipping and returns.

While it works well on its own, the Nectar memory foam mattress is well-suited for an adjustable bed frame, too. This adjustable bed model provides enough cushion in its thick 12 inches to be comfortable while offering plenty of support and just enough flexibility to bend where the bed frame needs it to bend. 

Each of the Nectar's five layers has a purpose, starting with the quilted Tencel mattress cover, which integrates heat-wicking properties and innovative cooling components to help keep you cool. This Nectar mattress has three foam layers, each providing cushion and support, including the Stay-Stable Base Layer, 7 full inches of standard, supportive foam to hold the rest of the layers in place. To keep things from slipping away, there's a shift-resistant cover at the bottom. Nectar's adaptive memory foam layer helps relieve pressure points beneath your shoulders, hips and legs, encouraging better spinal alignment.  

Nectar's site says many types of bed frames and foundations can work with its memory foam mattress, including adjustable bases, box springs, divan bases, traditional frames and platforms. Read more in our Nectar mattress review

When you purchase a Nectar, you get a generous 365-night home trial, a forever warranty, free shipping and returns and no-contact delivery. Nectar also sells an air bed mattress, which is best for camping and use as a spare bed.

The Lucid 10-Inch Plush Gel Memory Foam mattress combines the minimalist with the plush to create a budget-friendly mattress fit for adjustable bed frames.

The 4.5 inches of bamboo charcoal-infused foam provide firm support, and the components are hypoallergenic.

The Lucid mattress is easy on the wallet and works with many frames, according to the Lucid website, including box springs, metal grids, slatted bases, metal grids and adjustable bases.

The original Avocado Green mattress is an eco-friendly favorite, and it works just as well on adjustable frames as it does on regular platforms, as its adjustable bed mattress has individually wrapped coils and other materials to allow for the smooth operation of adjustable bed frames. 

Avocado Green leads the way in sustainability in the mattress industry in a few ways: 

  • Its mattresses are made using only certified organic cotton, wool and latex that's free of harmful chemicals, including toxic fire retardants and polyurethane.
  • The wool is ethically sourced from a herding collective the company jointly owns in India, and the latex rubber is sourced from sustainably harvested areas. 
  • Avocado Green is the only bed maker in the world to use wool with the Responsible Wool Standard certification, or RDS, which sets standards for the treatment of animals and the land they graze upon. RDS requires that the entire supply chain be certified.
  • The company received certification from MADE SAFE, meaning only ingredients not suspected to harm human, aquatic or animal ecosystems are used in its products. Avocado is one of only three mattress brands that meets this certification. 

The company's other mattresses are also worth consideration, including the Avocado Vegan, the Vegan Latex and the Latex, as all of them work with adjustable frames. All of the Avocado mattresses are compatible with its Eco Adjustable Base or Adjustable Base, as well as other, third-party varieties. Read more about the bed in our Avocado Green mattress review

The purchase of an Avocado Green mattress comes with free standard shipping and returns, a full-year sleep trial and a 25-year limited warranty.

The EcoCloud Hybrid adjustable bed mattress from WinkBeds has a multitude of benefits for side sleepers and hot sleepers looking for a mattress to go with an adjustable bed frame.

Its design begins with individually wrapped and tempered coils covered with two layers of textured Talalay latex, making the hybrid mattress naturally hypoallergenic, antibacterial and mold- and dust mite-resistant. Designed to provide support to the shoulders, hips and lumbar areas, the EcoCloud's arrangement also holds the spine in alignment and offers pressure relief to the joints, ideally giving the sleeper a sense of weightlessness. For the top layer, the EcoCloud is covered in soft and breathable quilted 100% organic cotton and New Zealand wool. 

Each WinkBed is handmade to order in one of the company's two American factories, undergoes rigorous testing and comes with a lifetime warranty. Most impressive to us was the company's proprietary Extra-Edge Anti-Sag Support System, which keeps the edges firm and supportive. Sleepers can feel confident stretching out all the way to the sides without worrying about falling off -- a relief for those who tend to be more active in their sleep. 

Available in six sizes, the EcoCloud mattress comes with free shipping and returns and a risk-free 120-night sleep trial.

Other mattresses we've tested

Our CNET Sleep editors have tested a number of mattresses, over 100 to be exact. Their experience enables them to curate best mattress lists like this one, and pick the beds that stand out from the rest. While the beds above are great options, there are a few more beds tested by editors that could be up for consideration.  

Casper mattress: The Casper mattress gets partial credit for bringing bed-in-a-box mattresses to the mainstream, and it's arguably one of the biggest brands in the online market. So much so, you can now find this mattress in popular retail stores like Target or Costco. It's an affordable all-foam mattress with a neutral, responsive feel unlike memory foam. It also has a zoned-support design that provides targeted support to the back and pressure relief to the hips and shoulders. It's rated around a 5 or medium on the firmness scale, making it ideal for just about any sleeping position. 

Brooklyn Bedding Signature: This is a pretty basic hybrid mattress, but it has a quality design with a surprisingly low price tag for a bed with coils. It's one of my top favorite brands because they manufacture their own beds, a feat most other mattress brands don't do. This allows them to sell their beds for the low. This bed is offered in three different firmness levels from soft to firm, so it's suitable for all sleeping positions from side, back, stomach and combo. Its hybrid design also makes it suitable for any body type. 

Amerisleep mattress: This is a memory foam bed similar to the Nectar mattress because its made with foam materials and has a dense, slow-responding feel. Though, with Amerisleep, it comes in five different firmness levels. The softer the mattress, though, the more you're going to have to pay. A huge plus about this line of beds is they all come with removable, machine washable covers. A lot of mattress covers require spot cleaning, so this makes removing stains a lot easier.

Frequently asked questions

Are adjustable mattresses worth it?

Yes, sleeping in a more upright position can be beneficial for your health. Adjustable beds can help alleviate joint pain, back pain, help prevent snoring, increase blood circulation and more. 

Does an adjustable base ruin your mattress?

Most mattresses are compatible with adjustable bed frames and they will not be ruined. Foam mattresses are great options and most hybrid beds are flexible enough to bend with your adjustable bed frame. If you're curious, check the FAQ page of the bed's manufacturer and they'll usually address compatible bed frames. 

What mattress is best for an adjustable bed?

Most modern mattresses will be compatible with your adjustable bed frames, especially foam beds. However, the best include the Purple, Cocoon, Tuft and Needle, Casper, Saatva, and Avocado. They are flexible mattresses that easily bend when you move your bed frame up or down. 

Are adjustable mattresses good for side sleepers?

Yes. Side sleepers can adjust the upper body part of the frame and alleviate pressure around their hips and knees. It also helps keep your spine in a more neutral alignment. Just make sure you don't dramatically elevate the head or foot so you can prevent a crooked spine.
