Clinical sleep educator Amy Korn-Reavis, MBA, RRT, RPSGT, CCHS, advises keeping materials and support at the top of your mind as you search for a mattress. These features will ensure your bed is comfortable and built to last.

“When looking at a mattress, you want it to have good quality parts,” she tells PEOPLE. “The cover should be made of a breathable material such as cotton or bamboo. You’ll want individually wrapped coils so they can move to support different areas of your body properly.” Because hybrid mattresses have all these stand-out features, these are the best beds on the market. “These mattresses have the cushioning of the foam and the support of an innerspring mattress,” adds Korn-Reavis. In fact, our best overall pick is the Dream Cloud Gel Memory Foam Luxury Hybrid Mattress.

You’ll also want to consider size when choosing a mattress at Amazon.”The size of the mattress is important because you have to make sure you’re going to be comfortable,” says Korn-Reavis. “For example, if you’re [six feet tall], a twin bed is too small.”

Size also extends to weight, adds Korn-Reavis. “Shoppers should consider the support as their weight can matter,” she says. “Someone who is heavier needs more support whereas someone who is smaller may consider something softer or [with] a deeper pillow top.”

Because all products sold at Amazon have them, you’ll want to look for mattresses with high star ratings and plenty of user reviews. These are good indicators that the mattress has an accurate rating and won’t leave you with buyer’s remorse.

Mattresses range in price, so considering your budget before you buy is wise. “Budget is important because it may limit what you look at,” Korn-Reavis explains. “However, because you’ll be using a mattress for the next 10 years, don’t feel discouraged to splurge on a bed with high-quality materials.” Our top budget option is the FDW Gel Memory Foam Mattress.
