With 5+ years of mattress testing experience, we use our different sleeping position and body type perspectives to offer well-rounded, honest reviews.

What to consider

Firmness

A firm mattress will offer more support while a soft mattress will be more pressure relieving. Medium mattresses fall in the sweet spot right in between. The right firmness level for you depends on your sleeping position.

Sleeping position

Side sleepers should consider a medium to soft mattress that cradles the hips and shoulders. Back and stomach sleepers should consider a medium to firm mattress that keeps the spine in a straight alignment. Switch between positions? A medium firmness level can accommodate all sleeping positions.

Feel

Coils and latex foam give a bed more bounce, while memory foam and poly foam make a bed feel more cushy and pressure relieving. The feel of your mattress will depend on the types of materials it has on the inside.

Construction

There are essentially two mattress types, hybrid and all-foam. Hybrid mattresses are constructed with steel coils and foam, but all-foam mattresses are just as their name implies.

Body type

Hybrid mattresses tend to be best for people who want extra support and durability. Sleepers over 230 pounds in particular should consider a hybrid over an all-foam mattress because it’s more supportive, durable and long-lasting.

Performance

Motion isolation, edge support and temperature are important features for couples or people who sleep hot to consider. Hot sleepers should consider a mattress that boasts special cooling features. Couples want minimal motion transfer and a strong, supportive bed perimeter.

Company policies

All online brands offer a free trial, free shipping and a warranty, but some brands are more generous with their policies than others.

If you prefer to sleep on your side or have a petite body type, a soft bed might be best for you. Soft mattresses offer exceptional pressure relief and comfort for most sleepers. Although, softer mattresses may not be perfect for some sleeping positions and body types. We rate mattresses on a scale from 1 to 10, with 1 being the softest and 10 being the firmest mattress you can get.

At CNET, our sleep experts have spent years testing all kinds of mattresses. With that knowledge, we've gone to great lengths to find you the best soft mattresses you can get today. During our testing, we factored in the materials and the qualities a mattress needs to make your bed as soft as you would want it to be. Here are our picks for the best soft mattresses you can buy. 

What's the best soft mattress?

Jon Gomez/CNET

The GravityLux is a luxury mattress from WinkBeds. It has three different firmness profiles, allowing you to choose the best option for your preferences. The soft (or what we consider medium-soft) option is suited for side sleepers looking for a bed that will offer pressure relief for the shoulders and hips. It could also work for combination sleepers who spend time on their back or stomach, but we'd recommend the medium or firm models if those are your primary sleeping positions. It's the kind of mattress that could work for anyone, so we think it's the best overall soft mattress. 

This soft mattress also has a "progressive support" design for all the layers, which is firm and soft where your body needs it most. The layers are thick, proprietary foam with cooling technology and extra durability. A queen GravityLux mattress retails for $1,799, although it's often on sale.

Best soft mattresses of 2024

WinkBeds GravityLux

Best overall soft mattress

Our take -  The WinkBeds GravityLux mattress is targeted toward sleepers who want a luxury mattress at a good price. With WinkBeds, you choose your own firmness level when you select your mattress size. You can get the softest, most pressure-relieving mattress variety available with their soft model (they offer soft, medium and firm).

Puffy Lux Hybrid

Best soft memory foam mattress

Our take -  The Puffy Lux Hybrid offers just enough decadent softness with a spritz of firmness and pressure relief sprinkled in. This bed provides a comfy, airy memory foam feel that I find extremely cozy. Standing 12 inches tall and comprised of six foam layers and pocketed coils, Puffy describes the Lux Hybrid as their most popular mattress.

Helix Sunset Luxe

Best soft mattress for side sleepers

Our take -  Made in the USA, the Helix Sunset Mattress Luxe has a plush feel with a 2-3 rating on the firmness scale, the softest bed possible. It's the best soft mattress for side sleepers or those who move around a lot during their sleep, as this mattress comprises six distinct layers, starting with a premium pillow top with a Tencel material for airflow.

Saatva Rx

Best soft mattress for back pain

Our take - Most people assume that because someone has back pain, they need a super firm mattress to alleviate pain. Some people prefer soft mattresses, often because they sleep on their side. The Saatva Rx mattress is on the softer side of medium or a 4 or 5 out of 10 on our firmness scale.

Amerisleep AS5 Hybrid

Best soft mattress for heavy sleepers

Our take -  The Amerisleep AS5 Hybrid mattress is the perfect soft mattress for heavier side sleepers. It's about as pressure-relieving as a mattress can get while still being supportive. The 14-inch thick Amerisleep AS5 Hybrid memory foam mattress features an airy, breathable soft feel cover. This is followed by a plant-based foam called Bio-Pur for contouring and pressure relief; this foam also has an open-cell design to promote airflow. Bio-Pur foam is mildew, mold and dust mite resistant and CertiPUR-US certified. It also tests low in emissions.

Best flippable soft mattress

Our take -  The Layla mattress is a flippable mattress with two firmness levels in one. One side is around a medium to medium-firm, while the other is a medium-soft. Soft bed lovers will love the plush side of the Layla mattress. It's a light and airy memory foam with copper-infused material to help draw heat away from your body.

Other mattresses we've tested

In addition to the soft mattresses listed above, our CNET Sleep editors have tested over 100 other beds. The ones chosen for our best soft mattress list are among the best, but several other beds deserve an honorable mention. 

Brooklyn Bedding Signature: Brooklyn Bedding is one of the only online mattress brands that makes and manufactures its own beds, so the prices are extremely fair and reasonable. I'd argue the Signature mattress is one of the best values. It has three firmness levels, but the soft model is rated around a three or medium-soft. It also has a bouncy, neutral-foam feel that most people will find comfortable.

WinkBed mattress: The WinkBed is a luxury-hotel-worthy bed with a solid hybrid construction. It's made with memory foam but has a more neutral, innerspring mattress feel. Its pillow top gives it a plush feel, while the inner springs make it feel supportive and springy. It also has three different firmness levels.

Leesa Legend mattress: The Leesa Legend is quality-built and perfectly plush bed. It has two different layers of springs, a design only a handful of beds use. This makes it a bit more bouncy than a memory foam mattress, which takes a few moments to react to pressure. It's rated around a 5 out of 10 on the scale or a medium, but its light and airy foam feel makes it feel soft and inviting.

How we tested the best soft mattresses

Over our years of testing mattresses, we've established tests we use to assess mattresses on key factors. 

Firmness and feel

You can think of firmness as how hard or soft a mattress is when you are lie on it. We've tested hundreds of mattresses and have an extensive catalog to compare against each new bed we test. 

When assessing for feel, we get handsy with the bed. As we press on the bed, we watch what the material does. Does it take a second to bounce back like traditional memory foam, or is it quick and bouncy like latex foam?

Durability

Mattresses don't last forever, and you want to buy one that lasts. Based on its construction, we hypothesize how well a mattress will stand up to nightly use. Beds that have steel coils as a base will generally last longer than all-foam mattresses.

Motion isolation

Motion isolation is how well a mattress dampens movement across the surface. It's a big deal for people who sleep with a partner or pet who moves around at night. We jump and bounce around on the mattress for motion isolation and see how much movement is detected. We also place a glass of water on the edge of the bed and roll around and bounce near it. If it doesn't topple over, a mattress has good motion isolation. 

Edge support

A mattress's edge support is how strong the bed's perimeter is. We lay and sit on the edge of the mattress and assess how sturdy it feels. If we feel like we will fall off, then a bed doesn't have good edge support. 

Temperature 

Hot sleepers need to look for mattresses with cooling technology. Many mattresses claim to have it, but we know the difference between marketing and cooling construction that will actually keep you cool. 

Our CNET Sleep editors picked the beds and other products we write about based on editorial merit. When you buy through our links, we may get a commission. Find out more about how we test mattresses

What to consider when shopping for a soft mattress

Buying a soft mattress is a big decision. There are a lot of options out there, and not every bed out there will be the best choice for you. There are four key factors to remember when browsing: sleeping position, body type, health conditions and your budget. 

  • Sleeping position: Side sleepers need soft to medium mattresses with plenty of pressure relief to ensure pressure points don't develop on the shoulders, hips or knees. Think soft memory foam or plush pillow tops that conform to the curves of your body. Back and stomach sleepers need a medium to firm mattress to keep the spine aligned throughout the night. Combination sleepers have the most flexibility in firmness. You should decide based on the position you spend the most time in. 
  • Body type: Your weight will determine how much pressure you put on a mattress, which influences how firm you experience it. Plus-size body types will experience mattresses softer than a petite body type who puts less pressure on the bed. People over 230 pounds require a mattress with lots of support from coils, like hybrid mattresses. People under 230 pounds can choose between foam and hybrid mattresses, although the less you weigh, the more firm it will seem. 
  • Health conditions: Your needs are another crucial factor to remember when shopping for a bed. You should choose a firmer mattress if you're someone with back pain. If you suffer from joint pain, choose a softer bed that will cradle you at night. If you sleep hot, look for a mattress with cooling technology in the foam or cover, or you can opt for a naturally breathable bed with latex foam. 
  • Budget: Mattresses aren't a small purchase; even the most affordable bed will cost a few hundred dollars. The average cost of an online mattress is $850 to $1,200. Establishing your budget will help you filter out mattresses and narrow down your pool of options. There are mattresses for every budget, from under $300 to luxury hotel mattresses that cost over $2,000.

What are the benefits of a soft mattress?

Soft beds are best for side sleepers. If you sleep on your back or stomach, a firm bed helps prevent your back from sagging. 

Zooey Liao/CNET

Besides being ultra comfortable to snuggle up in, the best soft mattresses are ideal for side sleepers and petite individuals who seek more pressure relief.

  • Soft mattresses allow the hips and shoulders to press into the bed's comfort layers, providing pressure relief to those joints. 
  • For side sleepers, a soft mattress will help promote proper spinal alignment because it is more contouring around the shoulders and hips and has more give. 
  • The lighter you are, the firmer a bed feels. Petite sleepers under around 150 pounds may want a softer mattress because the average "medium" firmness mattress will feel more like a medium-firm.

Best soft mattress FAQs

What kind of mattress is the softest?

Most soft mattresses are made with memory foam, polyurethane foam, or a blend of the two. These two materials are great for pressure relief and they can be manufactured to be ultra-plush and soft. Latex hybrid mattresses, on the other hand, tend to be the firmest. 

Are soft mattresses bad for your back?

If you strictly sleep on your side, a soft mattress will cradle your curves and give under your hips and shoulders to promote a neutral spinal alignment. When you're sleeping on your back or stomach, a soft mattress allows your spine to sag into the bed. Beds that offer more support have proven to be more beneficial for people with back pain. If you want a bed that offers plushness and support, go for a medium firmness level. 

Who are soft mattresses good for?

Side sleepers tend to benefit from soft mattresses the most because they need a firmness profile that cradles the joints around your hips and shoulders. A firm mattress offers little to no give around the shoulders and joints, which can throw off your spinal alignment and cause back pain. People under 150 pounds also like mattresses on the soft side because they exert less pressure onto a bed, making it feel firmer than what your average-weighted sleeper feels.
