Logan Foley, managing editor at health and wellness site SleepFoundation , has reviewed more than 100 mattresses during her career (she tests them for the site). So when it came to picking her own mattress over a year ago, Foley had a list of things she wanted, including a luxury hotel-like feel, a soft top layer and temperature control so she didn’t get too hot at night. She opted for the $1,499 WinkBed LuxuryFirm, which comes with a 120-night free trial and $399 of accessories including an adjustable pillow, SateenLux 100% cotton sheets and a luxury mattress protector. It’s also Wirecutter’s pick for the best innerspring mattress and comes with a lifetime warranty and free shipping and returns.

“The WinkBed is a great hybrid mattress,” Foley says, who likes that it offers a tufted top layer that gives it a hotel-like feel and offers good temperature regulation since she says “I tend to sleep really warm.” The bed also provides superior support and contouring, she says. “This is key to ensuring I’m not going to wake up with a sore back. The WinkBed has extra support through the middle of the mattress, giving me great support in my lower back, where I need it most when I’m sleeping on my back. The soft top layer also allows me to sink in the perfect amount for me not to have pressure points in my shoulders and hips when I’m laying on my side,” Foley explains.

Foley had to go through a lot of mattress to find this one. Because she doesn’t stick to one position when she sleeps, it can be hard for her to find a mattress that fits her needs. Other perks of the WinkBed: The mattress has polyfoam layers on top of the pocketed coils, so you still get comfort from the memory foam with the bounce from the coils. It comes in four different firmness levels too: “If you weigh less, go for the softer option. If you weigh over 230 pounds, go for the firm option,” says Foley. 

If the WinkBed doesn’t meet your needs, here are more innerspring mattresses that experts recommend.
