The Best Queen Size Mattresses

by Bill Welles

If you’re searching for a new bed, queen size mattresses are a popular choice. Measuring 60 inches wide and 80 inches long, they're spacious enough for two people to sleep comfortably, yet suitable for solo sleepers looking for a more compact option to fit in their bedroom. And there will still be plenty of room leftover to accommodate visits from pets or your children after they’ve had a bad dream.

You can find virtually any mattress available in a queen size, so it’s important to consider durability, material quality, firmness, support, heat retention, and motion isolation before making a purchase. Queen size mattresses may also suit certain sleep or body types better than others, so our team at Mattress Land is here to help you choose the best possible mattress for your needs.

Follow along as we highlight the best queen size mattresses, along with buying considerations, recommended products, and pros and cons.

Who Are Queen Mattress Best For?

Single Sleepers: We all come to a point where we outgrow twin- and full-size beds, so the solution is a queen mattress that is spacious enough to rest comfortably without feeling cramped. And when you’re not busy catching ZZZs, the roominess of a queen size mattress is ideal for reading, knitting, or watching TV.

Couples: If you and your sleep partner are in need of the perfect compromise, a queen size mattress is ideal for those who value intimacy, but who also need the elbow room and personal space to fall asleep. Couples should look for a queen mattress that absorbs motion, wicks away heat, and has strong edges. Proper edge support helps you and your sleep partner sprawl out without someone getting kicked off the bed.

Teenagers: As teenagers hit their growth spurts, they’ll need a larger bed to fit changes to height and body weight. Look for durable materials and something you know will last. If you’re lucky, your teenager will be able to take the mattress with them when they move out for college.

Queen Mattress Buying Considerations

1. Who’s Using the Mattress?

Shoppers typically choose a mattress that suits their ideal comfort level or sleep preference. If your queen mattress is being used by more than one person, it needs to provide comfort for both individuals. Teenagers or lighter sleepers will benefit from a plush mattress, whereas heavier individuals or stomach sleepers may prefer a slightly firmer base. If this mattress is intended to go in a guest bedroom, aim for a medium-firm mattress with a more neutral feel.

2. Are You Sharing the Mattress?

If you regularly have kids curling up in bed with you or dogs jumping up to sleep at the foot of the bed, you should also consider their needs when shopping for a new queen size mattress. If the bed is packed full each night, consider motion isolation, noise from innersprings, and edge support to provide the room necessary to sleep soundly and reduce any late-night disruptions to your sleep schedule.

3. Sleep Trials

Most mattresses sold online will come with some sort of sleep trial or set period of time where you can test out the mattress. If you decide the bed isn’t the right fit for your needs, you can return it within that window (typically 90 days). Once you’ve ensured a confident and successful mattress purchase, the product should be matched by a warranty (ideally 10 years or longer) that protects you against any manufacturing defects. Pay close attention to the fine print before you buy your new mattress to be sure there is a proper warranty in place with no additional hidden charges.
